1. A paint by numbers kit that’ll let you show off your artistic chops on the daily. Wait, you don’t have those? You do now. All of them.


Promising review: “I love this! I had so much fun painting it and it turned out better then I expected. When you’re done with most paint by numbers you can kinda tell that’s what they are. I’ve gotten so many compliments on this and people are all shocked when I say it was a paint by number. The brushes held up till the end, but just barely.” —Shelby Salpas

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

2. A pack of five cable wrap cords to keep you from getting your wires crossed, literally, when you’re commuting and tuning out everything around you – you’re clearly too put together to have cords get tangled up in your backpack.


Promising review: “I love these things. My husband also has a lot of audio equipment with cords going everywhere, so he uses these to bunch several cords together. I also use them to hold my earbuds together so they aren’t bunched up in my purse.” —Jean S.

Get them from Amazon for $8.95.

3. An Aerogarden that’ll give you a green thumb even though you hardly need to touch any plants at all!


Promising review: “I’m very impressed with this product! It really works and is even more effortless than I thought. You literally just add water, nutrients and let it go! It hasn’t lost any water and I’ve only had to add nutrients once (remember to shake the bottle). I’m going on 15 days and I already have dill I can use and about 10 leafs on the basil plant! The parsley is just now starting to come up, but it takes a little longer to germinate. Having grown herbs from seed the usual way, I’m absolutely amazed at how fast they grow in this contraption!” —The Rolling Rook

Get it from Amazon for $70.86.

4. A guided questions journal that’ll make you a memory-saving pro in a matter of (exactly two) minutes. Your posterity will love reading about the week you ordered six pizzas hoping to see that one hot pizza deliverer again. They really will.


This journal helps guide you to find gratitude, feel stress relief, and set intentions by focusing on the phrase, “I will let go of, I am grateful for, I will focus on.”

Promising review: “Do you have two minutes? Do you struggle with priorities? Well, here’s a journal to help you win your day. After struggling to manage his commitments, Neil Pasricha discovered a simple gratitude practice that changed his life. It takes—wait for it—just two minutes every morning. The practice is simple yet powerful, and by using a journal to log your entries, you’ll be able to look back over the year at all you’ve accomplished.” —Chris Guillebeau

Get it from Amazon for $11.42.

5. A Dash rapid egg cooker sure to guarantee you never have to ~scramble~ to find a good Sunday brunch spot ever again – your kitchen table is gonna be the best spot in town.


Promising review: “I bought this egg cooker for the first time a year and a half ago, and it is awesome. I hate having a single-purpose appliance in my kitchen, but this is worth it. Making hard-boiled eggs was always hit or miss for me, even if it was timed perfectly. (I admit I forgot about the eggs more than once!) This cooker makes PERFECT eggs every single time, to the exact hardness I desire with no green ring on the yolk. Even better, the shell slides off without taking half the egg white with it! My favorite use is to pop some eggs in when I get home and prep a salad. By the time the salad is ready, the eggs are done. I can even leave the kitchen and still hear when they are done because of the buzzer. I’ve purchased five more of them for family for Christmas this year and can’t wait to get everyone on board the Dash Go Egg Cooker train!” —A. M. Hinshaw

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

6. A John Frieda hot air brush reviewers swear by. It’s sure to prove you are the kind of person who never has to get a professional blowout to have a look that blows people away., Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

Seriously, this has over 4,000 five-star reviews and one BuzzFeeder wrote all about how this will eliminate your hair struggles forever.

Promising Review: “It has two heat settings (plus a cool setting to set your style) AND ***ionic power*** to reduce frizz and add massive shine. And it has ceramic coating to reduce heat damage to your hair. I friggin’ love this brush. All you need to do is section your hair out, depending on how thick it is, and roll it under your hair like you would a regular round brush — but because it releases hot air, there’s NO NEED FOR A HAIR DRYER! Truly easy. And you get better results than with a flat iron, because you’re lifting and brushing out the hair rather than just pressing it flat.“—Maitland Quitmeyer

Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in two sizes).

7. A pair of stellar running shoes with built-in sockliners, compression mesh, and a “zero-gravity” feel that’ll make running marathons feel like a walk in the park.

Under Armour

Reviewers recommend ordering one size up.

Promising review: “I bought these because they look cool. After reading reviews I got one size larger but they were still too small. I usually wear a size eight and nine didn’t work out. I returned them and got a nine and a half. They are a good fit now. Very comfortable. Once I have them on I don’t want to take them off. I wear them to the gym for all my HIIT and TCX classes.” —lomzynianka

Get them on sale from Under Armour for $96.99 (originally $140, available in women’s sizes 5–12).

8. A pet grooming glove for pet parents who want their lovable mutt looking like a show dog worthy of Westminster with just a brush of their hand.


Promising review: “These gloves work wonders for my long-haired German Shepherd puppy. My puppy is 11 months old and sheds like crazy. These gloves are perfect because my puppy does not like being brushed by rough brushes and tries to bite them. With the gloves she doesn’t care as much.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

9. A set of three suction cup bath tubes so you can keep your kiddo entertained in the cleanest way possible while actually keeping them in the bathtub long enough to get them clean.


These are gonna be so much better than last month’s bath crayon disaster.

Promising review: “Our 18-month-old adores these. His older sisters (five and seven) have also been enjoying them in the tub. They work great and stick really well. The only negative is that we have temper tantrums now because baby boy wants to take a bath all the time.” —JKinSD

Get them from Amazon for $9.99.

10. A pour-over kit for coffee connoisseurs who have ~bean~ needing a good pour-over option in their place.

Blue Bottle

This has a dripper, 30 filters, one carafe, and one pour-over brew guide.

Get it from Blue Bottle for $59.

11. A box of assorted greeting cards so people think you’re the kind of person who *never* forgets a birthday…even when you absolutely forgot about it until that Facebook notification popped up.


This set includes 10 birthday cards, three celebration cards, three thank you cards, two ‘just because’ cards, one sympathy card, and one get well soon card (with 20 matching envelopes).

Get them from Amazon for $20.55+ (available in four styles).

12. A Lifestraw water filter to help the camping-curious who want a chance to really prove themselves in the wild – even if you’ve *gulp* barely been outdoors before.


The straw’s microfiltration membrane eliminates bacteria and parasites so you can safely drink from any available water source…seriously.

Promising review: “I used this on a hike recently; tried different configurations as shown, with the drinking straight out of the river, and out of a wide-mouth bottle. The flow-rate through the LifeStraw is a little reminiscent of drinking a really thick milkshake, which is understandable considering the filter basically gets everything. When I filled up my Nalgene with water from the stream, I could see the sediment start to settle; I even made sure to get some with the straw just to see. Worked like a charm. You just need to remember to blow into it afterwards to clear out the straw.” —Kingston

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

13. A handheld milk frother for coffee connoisseurs who would find nothing more satisfying than enjoying a perfect, home-foamed brew from the comfort of their kitchen counter.,

This tiny, battery-powered magic latte wand comes with a stand to keep things sanitary. It’s also great for traveling and camping!

Promising review: “This makes the creamiest froth ever! I am completely blown away by the results of this device. I had no idea that I could make froth at home like this. This changes my whole cappuccino experience!!!” —Wells Family

Get it from Amazon for $13.95 (available in two colors).

14. A DIY video game kit so you can code with kiddos – making you the coolest babysitter this side of Sycamore street.


This helps you make your own video game using physical and digital tools – the included game board and 320 blocks are used to build out rooms and characters that you can then scan into the app, where you then learn how to code the game.

Promising review: “This is so much more than the board game you purchase. The board is just the beginning! My 10-year-old son absolutely loves this. He makes his very own video games to play and share. He likes the fact that he can create his own characters, his own levels, and tell his own story. He is on the sixth edition of one of his games and each and every game is better than the last. It encourages him to get in touch with his creative self and develop his storytelling abilities. As a parent, I don’t have to monitor or limit his time because every minute engages him.” —Kristen Keyser

Get it from Amazon for $20.99.

15. A Critter Catcher that’ll help you bravely wrangle and release creepy crawlies without any fear (because you won’t have to get within a foot of them).


Promising review: “‘I am alive because of critter catcher.’ — a large hairy spider.” —E. Jorgensen

Get it from Amazon for $19.95 (available in five colors).

16. A dog selfie stick to make Spot the selfie master you always knew she could be.


Promising review: “I bought this after adopting my adorable and excitable rottweiler. I was hoping to get some nice pictures to share with friends and guess what, this thing works! At first, my fiancé mocked me for buying this but now he sees the great pictures and says this idea is genius. Titan loves tennis balls and the squeaky function really allows me to capture his attention.” —Maranda

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

17. An eyeliner stamp that’s gonna give you wing-tips so impeccable you’re sure to get any makeup artist’s ~stamp~ of approval.,

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.

Wanna learn more? My BuzzFeed coworker wrote a review about why hundreds of people swear by this stamp.

Promising review: “I bought this eyeliner six months ago and have used it every day since then – it’s still going strong! I have been very pleased with the whole thing. The stamp is very easy to use and delivers consistently good stamps (I occasionally have to fill in some gaps, but that’s because of the way my eyes wrinkle and no fault of the stamp). It always delivers a nice crisp point, which is one of the most important parts. The pen side is also very easy to use and my cat eye looks perfect every time! I’ve recently been thinking that I should order a replacement, because at this point I depend on it and I don’t want to have to go a day without it. I am so impressed that the pen has lasted six months (and counting) without once failing to stamp correctly. I am hooked!” —HebbieWebbie

Get two stamps from Amazon for $9.97 (available in two sizes).

18. A wooden balance board core trainer so you can increase your strength, balance, and flexibility as fast as any fitness enthusiast – even if you can’t ~stand~ going to the gym.


Just shove it under your sofa and use it when you watch cartoons! I mean, you know, the news.

Promising review:This is very well made with quality materials. The support on the bottom is textured and does not slip easily. I use it on a smooth vinyl floor and have no trouble with it slipping. Like anything involving exercise, approach it with care and common sense and you will be fine.” —TekDev

Get it from Amazon for $32.97.

19. A to-do list notepad for making your life so organized you might as well start your own self-help blog. Feel free to cross “influencer” off your list.


This keeps an organized log of your daily priorities and hourly goes. There’s room for keeping track of your exercise, water intake, time spent standing, and even bills you need to remember to pay.

Promising review: “I’ve tried just about every type of organization system and nothing really sticks. I end up making a list on scrap paper in the morning and crossing things off as I accomplish them. This planner is perfect for me because it provides the daily structure I was looking for. At night before I go to bed I take five minutes to fill it out for the next day. I’ve been more productive with it and haven’t missed an appointment or deadline. And I just turn it over at the end of the day and use the other side as scrap paper for grocery lists and notes.” —A. Elton

Get it from Amazon for $12.50+ (available in three styles).

20. A copy of Crafting with Cat Hair because if people are already calling you a cat lady at 23, you’re gonna make sure you are *the* cat lady by 24. I can’t think of a better way to show your furocious affection.


Promising review: “With the help of this book, my wife has made all of the Christmas gifts for our friends and family. I highly recommend this book to anyone who, like my wife, has shedding cats in their house.” —Science Educator

Get it from Amazon for $9.71.

21. A Squatty Potty so you can even poo with perfection.


Promising review: “The worst thing about this contraption is that you gather all of your viewing content (i.e. books, article, Instagram, etc.), prep your self up, and before you even get past the first paragraph it’s time to get off. I never get that intimate pooping time to myself anymore; you really don’t realize what you have until it’s gone.” —Melissa

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

22. And a bottle of Poo-Pourri that’ll guarantee you never even make the bathroom smell ~crappy~.


Promising review: “One bathroom in an apartment just isn’t enough for two adults with healthy colons. Enter Poo-Pourri. It has an amazing scent. It’s very fresh and not overpowering, and it isn’t synthetic smelling. With most room sprays, you end up just smelling flowery poo. This masks the smell completely. I can walk in the bathroom 30 seconds after my boyfriend and only smell lemon.” —Allison H

Get it from Amazon for $5.70+ (available in 20 scents and six sizes).

23. A gel manicure light – the ~cure~ to your mediocre nail skills. This is sure to massively up your mani game, and your savings account.


Promising review: “This lamp works well. It cures gel polish in 30-60 seconds (it still feels gooey on the surface, but once you wipe it with rubbing alcohol, it is perfectly dry). The opening is large enough for your whole hand to go in without damaging your manicure and the lights surround all of your nails so they all cure evenly.” —Rach Banach

Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

24. A toothpaste squeezing stand that’ll give you the waste-free skills to get every single piece of that paste.


Promising review: “I didn’t expect much based on how cheap these were, but they are much sturdier than I thought they would be and they are easy to use.” —Amazon Customer

Get two from Amazon for $7.29.

25. 104 Things to Photograph, a book that’ll guide your eye when you want a ~picture~ perfect portfolio, even if it’s just for fun and just for you.


The “things” to photograph are numbered, with slots to place your final image above each prompt.

Promising review: “This book was perfect for what I was looking for. It gives you prompts for your photography to help you explore your camera and what you can do with it. It helps you find your personal style of photography by how you interpret the prompts. As an added bonus, there’s slots cut in each page for you to place your photos so you can have a portfolio of your work. It’s wonderful!” —Angeler

Get it from Amazon for $21.95.

26. A pack of five produce bags made with a washable 100% cotton material, so you can carry produce in the grocery store, wash it in the sink at home, and keep it organized in the fridge – all while making Mother Nature extra proud.


Get them from BuzzFeed’s Goodful collection on Amazon for $12.99.

27. A pair of anti-nausea bands to keep you from getting motion sick when you haven’t ridden in a car for months and your brain forgot what it’s like to go faster than 4 mph.

Promising review:I get motion sickness at a drop of a hat. When I decided to go on a second cruise, I bought these thinking they wouldn’t do anything and that I would return them once I got home. I was pleasantly surprised and found that these helped me tremendously. I wore them all the time over the course of my five day cruise and was never sick during my vacation. I was stunned. My first cruise I got so sea sick the first day and ended up in a foggy haze the rest of the trip since I took so much Dramamine. Great little product and I can’t believe how well they worked. I bought a second pair for the car, so if I ever feel sick, I can just put these on. I would highly recommend, even for the skeptical.” —Kristina K.

Get them from Amazon for $6.68.

28. A frozen pie crust, because “easy as pie” only counts if you don’t have to make the crust. Sneakily use this and your pies will be perfection.


Promising review: “This is the best pre-made, frozen pie crust. It’s very similar to homemade consistency and flavor.” —amazonaddicted

Get it from Prime Fresh on Amazon for $4.39.

29. Or silicone baking molds so your pastries never tear and you get Mary Berry-approved baked goods every time you open the oven.


Promising review: “I was a bit skeptical at first, but these little molds hold their weight and produce a beautiful product. Whatever you decide to use them for, they are worth the buy!” —Megan C Dickerson

Get two from Amazon for $13.99 (available in three colors).

30. A UV melding tool that’ll make you the go-to person when there’s a broken cord, toy, or heart in the home (because you’ll be so darn good at ~bonding~).


This can fix circuit boards, toys, glasses, and more. One side spits out a liquid bonder and the other side has a UV light that dries the bond when you’re ready to finish up the repair job.

Promising review: “I bought this to use primarily as an alternative to head cement for my fly tying. I think it’s cool how the glue pen is at one end and the UV light is at the other. It’s super easy to go from applying the glue to hardening it with the UV light. And it really only takes five seconds or so for the light to harden the resin. For fly tying, it makes a really nice, neat looking head and it holds up great on the river. While I don’t think this wasn’t its intended use, it works great and I am sure I will use it to fix other things around the house and such. I would definitely recommend this to anyone!” —Devon Hayes

Get it from Amazon for $22.95.

31. A ball launcher sure to give you an arm worthy of Shadow’s tireless dog park days without totally wearing you (or your rotator cuff) out.

Promising review: “I have a young Golden Retriever who would retrieve balls and frisbees all day long if my arm could take it. I bought this and love it! I can throw the ball a lot farther and for more throws, so he gets more exercise. I love that I no longer need to bend over to pick up the ball or have to touch a slimy, sandy, filthy ball! It’s quite intuitive to use and within about three throws you’ll have it down perfectly. You can also use regular tennis balls with it. This is a must-have if your dog likes retrieving games.” —J.Essie

Get it from Amazon for $9.92.

32. A geometric or faux tile peel-and-stick wallpaper that’ll be the shockingly simple cherry on top of your TLC dreams.


Promising review: (Geometric) “I was super excited when I received this and couldn’t wait to put it up. It’s a really cool modern design with a neutral feel. This is easy to hang because if you goof up it will peel away and re-stick. The pattern is modern and busy so if it’s off it’ll still blend well. This hides blemishes in the wall or furniture, in my case.” —PotterCoastal

(Tile) “I am IN LOVE. I bought this to use as a backsplash in my rented studio apartment kitchen, which has potential to be pretty but really needs some help. I ordered two rolls thinking that if I liked it in my kitchen, I’d order more to use on the wall behind my bar cart. I loved it so much when it came in that I decided to go ahead and put it up on the big wall and deal with the kitchen later. The pattern is so easy to line up and it looks so good! My tiny, dark apartment instantly looked bigger and brighter. Even up close I can’t tell where the seams are. It was super easy to put up by myself, though I would recommend having another person to help if possible because it would have taken a lot less time if I’d had someone to hold it steady while I lined up the edges. If I could give this six stars I would. It’s expensive, but worth every penny!” —Lizzy

Get the wall version for $26.98+ (available in three colors) and the tile version for $29.23+ (available in two colors), both from Amazon.

33. And finally, a French fry holder sure to prove you have the most ingenious mind of all time.


Promising review: “I bought this for my wife as she is a French fry lover to the MAX. I gave it to her thinking it was an ‘okay’ novelty item for the truck. You would have thought it was the Hope Diamond. We immediately had to go to Sonic and try it out and it worked well. It is refreshing to watch such happiness.” —Robert Perkins

Get it from Amazon for $11.74.
