1.

A mini waffle maker that’ll not only make waking up simply ADORABLE, but encourage non-morning people to make quick and easy breakfasts (important!!!). And! It’s a great thing to have in order to save space if you’re the proud owner of a teeny kitchen.


Alexandra Napoli / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “If you like waffles, but don’t want to eat gigantic ones and/or don’t have a ton of counters pace to spare for a full size waffle maker, this little thing is well worth the price. Another benefit of this smaller size is that you can use the waffles from this little machine to make sandwiches, for those who like breakfast on-the-go, not to mention a sweet and savory treat in the morning. We have actually been surprised by how much we use this item considering other waffle makers we’ve purchased all end up collecting dust in the back of a cupboard. This really is a waffle maker that you’ll use more than once; in fact, diehard waffle fans will probably use it every day.” —Memory Lane

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in 10 colors).

A holographic peel-off mask so you can practice ~self-care~ many more times than you would if you only bought sheet masks (this formula comes in a tub). Plus, it brightens your complexion, minimizes pores, AND hydrates, meaning you get more bang 👏 for 👏 your 👏 buck 👏 than complicated routines.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love this mask. Overall, it does everything I hoped it would. I have super sensitive skin that reacts to almost everything, but this mask has kept my skin super soft, and blemish-free. Even when I do get a blemish, I use the mask, and it’s basically gone by the next day. Oh, and best of all for a peel off mask — IT ACTUALLY PEELS OFF IN ONE PIECE! Overall, great mask, highly suggest, and will buy again.” —kmf95

Get it from Amazon for $23.

3.

A faux shearling teddy coat because if you’re going to buy this season’s biggest trend, you should do it for cheap! It’ll go with everything, still be popular for seasons to come, and save you money. Talk about an “investment” piece.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I’ve wanted this jacket for awhile now, but 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. 100% recommend.” —Samantha

Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in sizes S–3XL and 21 colors and styles).

4.

A pour-over kettle and coffee dripper for starting your mornings on a nicer note than a rushed, $5 to-go cup. It’ll make individual cups so you don’t waste coffee grinds *and* it’ll save you money in the long run (all while tasting incredible rich).


Amazon

Reviewers like to take this to the office to start their day in a more relaxed manner.

Promising review (for the coffee dripper): “I really enjoy a fresh cup of coffee, and this is a pleasurable and meaningful way to create your own style. You put your own energy into every cup…it’s relaxing!! What a better way to start your day, before all the road rage and office shenanigans!” —Grdngoddess

Get them from Amazon: the pour-over kettle (left) for $24.98 and the pour-over dripper (right) for $23.99+ (available in two sizes).



5.

Or! A handheld milk foamer to make café-quality cappuccinos right in your own kitchen. You’ll save money AND avoid putting pants on Sunday morning. You can’t ask for much more.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “This is the best thing since sliced bread! No need to spend a small fortune drinking lattes from overpriced venues. A bit of warmed milk, half and half, cream or dairy substitute, and I am my own successful barista. It takes only a few minutes to create your highly valued, frothy latte. It takes the same or sometimes less amount of time to clean it. I am in love with this frother. No need to pay for multiple, expensive attachments that you don’t need. Warm your dairy/non-dairy source, add your spices, and froth away — light, heavy, just right. You make it your way, and for a lot less.” —SMP

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.



6.

A crystal ball essential oil diffuser that’ll be your most *mesmerizing* piece of bedroom decor thanks to its holographic LED lights. *And*! It’ll help you relax, make your room smell better, and seriously help the air feel less dry as winter approaches (read: great for anyone who gets nose bleeds).


Urban Outfitters

Promising review “I am so glad that I decided to spend a little more on a diffuser and go with this one! I find myself moving this bad boy from room to room! Not only is it an excellent diffuser, but it is so rad-looking! It looks like a mystical crystal ball! Your house will smell better, your skin will be more moisturized and you’ll look so beautiful in it’s soft light, what’s not to love?” — caseypcurrie

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $54 (originally $65), and a pack of nine essential oils from Amazon for $9.99.

7.

A powder mani starter kit so you can drastically reduce the amount you spend on manicures (especially if you get regular or even gel). This’ll last three to six weeks every time you use it, look professional, take 15 minutes to soak off (with water!), and won’t make your nails as weak as gel.


instagram.com, amazon.com

I get powder manis to save money and even THIS is a better a deal (for reference, I pay $40 every three to four weeks). My nails never feel brittle or weak, like they did when I got gel manis. This kit comes with three powder jars (one is your base and finish, the other two light pink and white) and four polishes, which are numbered to tell you the order you’ll need to use ’em.

Promising review: “Get this. It’s sooo, sooo worth it. It comes with more than enough product to last for the foreseeable future and getting additional colors is about the same as getting a new bottle of nail polish. I personally don’t do French tip, but I has been using the base and pink color to strengthen and build my naturally peel-y and soft nails. It’s sooooo much cheaper than salon visits and beyond easy to do at home if you have even a basic understanding of nail polish.” —Michelle Gadbury

Get it from Amazon for $39.97.

You can also pick other colored starter kits or colored dip powders!



8.

A Gleem electric toothbrush, because this’ll allow you to maintain your upgraded oral routine even when on vacation (it’s travel-friendly and battery-operated). Plus, it has a built-in timer to improve your brushing methods (aka remind you to move to *all* sections of your mouth). Looks and function? Take my money.


Walmart

9.

A geometric, color-changing backpack for accessorizing yourself to the FUTURE with a bag that holds *much* more than your usual purse. If your shoulder is starting to hurt from your weighed-down crossbody, may I introduce you to your newest compliment magnet.


amazon.com

It changes colors based on lighting!

Promising review: “Omg, I love this bag. It’s sturdy, super spacious, and water-resistant. I’m a pedestrian and bike commuter, so I need a decently sized bag to hold my lunch and book and life, basically. This holds everything I need neatly, without being huge and in the way. I got caught in the rain immediately my first day with it, and everything inside stayed dried and the bag itself was unharmed. Not to mention it’s AMAZING to look at! I’ve gotten so many, ‘OMG THAT BAG!’ comments, it’s incredible. I get excited about it again every time though. This is for sure my favorite bag.” —Molly Louise

Get it from Amazon for $27.99.



10.

A mini beauty fridge to (according to reviewers) help organic or all-natural skincare last longer and make applying your favorite products feel so. darn. refreshing. thanks to their now cooling touch (particularly great for eye cream and masks!). Basically this is the epitome of making sure you get your money’s worth after spending $$$ on skincare.


instagram.com

Promising review: “Beauty supply storage: It’s compact and very lightweight. I’m in love, I have products I know would last longer and work better on my skin if stored in a cool place and this is conveniently in my bathroom vs the need to travel to the kitchen morning and night. It’s so quiet you literally have to be directly in front of it to hear the softest whisper of a fan blow, practically silent. And it cooled in three hours just like it said, and it’s as cold as my full-size fridge.” —Walet Palmer

Get it from Amazon for $44.99 (available in seven colors).

11.

A pair of wireless earbuds that’ll
wish cumbersome headphones adieu in favor of a high-quality, hands-free listening experience — AND is the practical choice when shopping for wireless headphones. They’re a fraction of the price of AirPods, but reviewers say they work just as well.


amazon.com

AND their waterproof level can withstand rain and sweat, meaning Beyoncé won’t be stopped by a little precipitation (as if she’d ever).

Promising review: “I was hesitant to buy these, after just having bought some AirPods (they were still in the mail). After seeing the good reviews, I thought they might be a better fit for what I need than the AirPods. I was right. They sound great, fit perfectly, and the charger case can be used to charge my phone??? Sold! My biggest thing (and the reason I mailed my AirPods back) was the functions while using. AirPods do one thing per side. These can play/pause, get Siri, skip songs, go back songs, AND do volume up and down!! SO happy with these!” —Rebecca Kohrs

Get them from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two colors).

See what won best wireless earbuds on BuzzFeed Reviews.



12.

And! An adorable wireless earbuds case for never losing your newest tech purchase (even more important if you DO have AirPods). Basically, it’ll relieve that constant ~pit~ in your stomach that they might have gone missing.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I get so many compliments on this little avocado! It makes it so much easier to carry my AirPods wherever I go, as well.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $9.98.

13.

A modern jewelry display rack that’ll double as chic decor in your bedroom, keep your necklaces from tangling, and prevent you from losing any valuable earrings. If you frequently tear through your room looking for those pearls grandma passed down, you need this.


Amazon

It also comes with two ring holders!

Promising review: “I looked for months for a decent jewelry holder that could accommodate my necklaces, rings, and bracelets — this does the job and looks good on my dresser, as opposed to some jewelry holders that look like cheap plastic. It’s modern and funky and has a classy color scheme. The ring holders are removable, very useful!” —Lisa DiVenuta

Get it from Amazon for $25.95 (available in two colors).

14.

A weighted blanket so you can finally see why everyone is *buying* into this trend. This’ll apply just enough pressure to drastically improve your sleeping habits (not to mention, this is a little more stylish than most options). Reviewers swear this helps them with anxiety, stress, and insomnia thanks to its comforting weight. Always getting a good night’s sleep = money well spent.


instagram.com

It’s made of 100% cotton that helps to keep you cool during the summer (hot sleepers, included) and warm in the winter.

Promising review: “This blanket has changed my life! I was once someone who would spend the night counting the sleepless hours as they would pass me by…not anymore! Every night when I lay down and snuggle under the Dozeology Weighted Blanket, I am instantly at peace. The blanket hugs me (it literally feels like a hug) and all my stress and worries melt away! I’m able to be relaxed rather than tense, which allows for a more peaceful sleep. I’ve been recommending this blanket to anyone I know that suffers from insomnia and or anxiety attacks!” —Marissa

Get it from Amazon for $69.95+ (available in two sizes and colors).

15.

Or! A Buffy comforter, because this’ll make hot sleepers feel like they’re sleeping on ☁️cloud nine☁️ (seriously, this is so cloud-like). It’s made with super soft, temperature-regulating eucalyptus fiber that was designed with sweaty sleepers in mind (🙋) so you stay nice and dry ’til sunrise. If you wake up damp every morning, you KNOW this is the treat you’ve wanted your whole life.


instagram.com

I just got a Buffy and I am already L-O-V-I-N-G it! It actually feels noticeably cool the minute you unbox it and honestly feels like a cloud that’s hugging you when you get into bed. If you’re a tosser and turner like me, this stays on! I usually sweat — to be clear I am closer to a furnace than human — through the night and I’ve woken up dry every morning since. Plus, I love that it’s cruelty-free and sustainable!

Promising review: “I’ve had sleep problems for years. Every down comforter I’ve purchased makes me sweat uncontrollably. I figured I would give this a try and I’m glad I did. I’ve had this for about three weeks now and I have not sweat once. I couldn’t be more happy! I live in New York where we have hot summers and cold winters. I expect this to be cool enough for the summer and warm enough for spring and early fall.” —David U.

Get it from Buffy for $130+ (available in sizes twin/twin XL–king/California king).

16.

A set of face mask brushes for upgrading your beauty routine with tools that’ll feel like h-e-a-v-e-n on your skin and prevent you from wasting product *and* from using your fingers. Why, you ask? Fingers = acne-causing bacteria. Silicone = germ-free, no breakouts.


amazon.com

Plus, their silicone bristles are easier to clean than traditional brushes and distribute product more evenly!

Promising review: “I love these silicone brushes; they helped me keep bacteria definitely to a minimum on my face, which is the goal when you don’t want acne. It also makes the products that I use last way longer, because I can get everything out of the jar and I can spread the products on my face so much more evenly.” —Marisol Porrata-oviedo

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $3.98.

17.

A set of bamboo plates that’ll add a fun, pop of color to your kitchen and put an end to breaking precious kitchenware. Their sturdy, bamboo material mean even the biggest klutz won’t stand a chance in shattering these. Plus, they’re sustainable if you’re looking to be more ~eco-friendly~.


Amazon

These are dishwasher- (but not microwave-) safe.

Promising review: “These plates serve several practical purposes in addition to their colorful and visually appealing aesthetics. We use them regularly as everyday ware. They are extremely durable and aesthetically pleasing. The color variety actually serves an additional purpose other than an aesthetic one. It is easy to identify whose plate is whose, which is actually a more common dilemma with four kids than some might think.” —Winston

Get a pack of four from Amazon for $24.95.

18.

A sloth to-do pad so you can treat yo’self to inarguably the cutest lil’ helpers you can find, and add some cheer to your day-to-day (but still manage to accomplish all your tasks). These sloths won’t judge how long it takes to get some things finished, but they’re not leaving until you check everything off.


Emma McAnaw / BuzzFeed

Plus it’s broken down by priority so you can manage your time better! I have this myself, and I love these little guys. They really do motivate me once I’m actually able to list things out! I’m easily overwhelmed, but since making these new friends, I feel so much more organized and on top of things.

Promising review: “I can no longer live without this planner. It keeps it all sorted for me so that I can focus on one area at a time and get things done faster.” —Terri Boyd

Get it from Amazon for $5.95.

19.

A portable personal blender, because this’ll not only *look* super fancy thanks to its stylish design, but also let you make delicious smoothies on-the-go. All you have to do is fill it before running out the door. AND it saves you money when you don’t buy $7 smoothies every day?! We are living in the year 3000.


amazon.com

Plus, this is shatter-resistant, dishwasher-safe, and comes with an ice cube tray and funnel! ANDDD it’s quiet, so you’ll feel comfortable making your smoothie at work.

Promising review: “This blender is amazing! I am a yoga teacher and always on the run, which sometimes makes it hard to eat well. I bought this after reviewing quite a few different options and I am SO glad I did. It fits well into my gym bag, is surprisingly quiet when in use, and holds a charge really well. The blades are very efficient and I’ve had no trouble blending up ice or frozen fruit. Seriously cannot recommend it enough.” —Amazon Customer

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

20.

A set of llama dishcloths for not only introducing some adorable friends to your kitchen, but saving costs on cleaning wipes, paper towels, AND sponges. They’re super durable and absorbent (they can hold ~20 times~ their weight in liquid), can be used to wash dishes, and are machine-washable up to 200 times.


Amazon

Promising review: “These dishcloths are great for doing dishes and wiping off counters. We’ve been using these for years and prefer them over sponges. Throw them in on top of dishwasher to sanitize once in awhile and just like new. We use the oldest ones outside the kitchen in garage or for dirty jobs. So pleased we discovered these a few years back.” —Dennis Sembenotti

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $13.95.

21.

A weighted sleep mask filled with lavender and flax seeds that’ll feel positively ~dreamy~ at the end of the day and help improve your sleep habits, thanks to its comforting pressure. It also helps soothe puffy eyes and relieve eye fatigue, so it’s off to snooze town before you know it.


Amazon

Promising review: “I have had this mask for four months and I honestly love this product. I think this is probably the best Amazon purchase I’ve ever made. I had such trouble falling asleep and had so much stress pains in my head and even in my eyeballs! This is literally perfect for what I needed. It smells like lavender and is silky smooth. I used to lay awake for one to two hours and now with this mask, I fall asleep within 30 minutes. It’s magic. Sometimes I even lay the mask just above my eyes (on the ridge of my brows) and it alleviates so much pressure! It’s so incredibly soothing and I’m so lucky to have found this product. It’s truly changed my sleep quality.” —V H

Get it from Amazon for $17.50 (available in three colors).

22.

A pair of heated corgi slippers so you can r-e-l-a-x at the end of another ~doggone~ day with some serious cuddle buddies. The best part? These’ll help save money if you hate raising the heat a lot in the name of high electric bills.

Promising review: “So cute and functional, I love them. They are perfect for my home office and keep my feet warm while I’m working on snow days.” —Katrina

Get them from Amazon for $34.95+ (claims to fit one size; available in two styles).

23.

An odor-eliminating candle for filling your home with cozy scents like lavender, French vanilla, and “clean laundry”, while simultaneously erasing the not-so-pleasant smells that our cats and dogs bring inside.


amazon.com

They last up to 70 hours!

Promising review: “I love this candle! The scent is delicious and so lemony. My house smells fresh instead of like doggy. It worked so well, I used it when I cooked fish and it removed that lingering fishy smell! Going to buy all the scents!” —JRoos

Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in four scents).

25.

A Cosrx ceramide cream that’ll feel SO luxurious on your face every time you use it, thanks to its buttery formula that m-e-l-t-s onto your skin. But that’s not the best part — reviewers swear this works just as well as the costlier Dr. Jart ceramide cream by minimizing redness and soothing irritated skin. Aka you’re about to save A LOT of money if you usually trek to Sephora.


instagram.com, Amazon

Promising review: “This has done wonders for my skin. I was skeptical to use in the summer and I’ve had a tendency to break out with the heavy stuff, so I try to use sparingly, but it truly is the best soothing cream I’ve used in a while and does not make me break out! It has worked better on my skin than Dr. Jart’s Tiger Grass cream, for almost half the price.” —Skin in the game

Get it from Amazon for $25.30.



26.

A set of wool dryer balls so you can make pesky chores a heck of a lot more entertaining — while still actually getting them done. Not only will these make your clothes irresistibly fluffy, but they won’t be afraid to guilt trip you if you neglect them by avoiding laundry day.

And they’re built to last up to 1,000 washes!!!

Promising review: “I love using these little guys. It’s been a few months now and they’re still going strong.” —AzrathNyx

27.

A fidget spinner ring because this’ll feel and look like a new stylish accessory, but come in ~handy~ whenever you start to feel stressed. This’ll help you put an end to nail-biting and cuticle-picking when you can use this as an outlet, instead.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love this little ring. I’ve been thinking about getting a fidget ring like this for my anxiety for so long, and I’m so glad I finally got this one. It’s gorgeous for the price and I find myself using it every time I’m feeling anxious without even realizing it. For example, I made a phone call that I had been anxious to make, the call went great, and I realized I had been playing with the ring the whole time subconsciously. I also have a stressful job and find myself playing with it all throughout the day as well. I love it.” —Chelsea

Get it from Amazon for $7.99+ (available in sizes 4–12 and seven colors).

28.

An Away carry-on suitcase for splurging on the trendy luggage you see all over Instagram, but for good reason. It basically solves every airport woe with its durable hard shell, ejectable battery to charge your phone, TSA-approved combo lock (no more fitting your suitcase in the bathroom stall), and 360° spinner wheels. You might start booking trips just to use this.


instagram.com, Arielle Calderon / BuzzFeed

But wait! There’s MORE! It also has a black leather luggage tag, interior compression system so you can s q u e e z e in those extra shoes, and a hidden laundry bag to finally separate your undies from clean clothes!

Get it from Away for $225+ (available in four sizes and 12 colors).

Promising review: “The reviews are true! I researched this piece of luggage thoroughly before finally taking the plunge and purchasing it. I absolutely love it. I used it for a short trip and it worked perfectly. All my clothes including my makeup bag, shoes, suit, etc. easily fit into the luggage. I will be using it on a four-day trip soon and I don’t anticipate that I will have any problems fitting all of my stuff. It looks beautiful in person, and is extremely lightweight yet durable. It was a breeze walking through their airport with it. The portable charger came in handy at my hotel. I would definitely recommend the carryon to a friend.” —Saba K.

A tube of Smith’s rosebud salve that’ll serve as a midday pickup with its subtle 🌹rose scent🌹, but treat super dry skin EVERYwhere, including chapped lips, elbows, knees, and toes. Wherever there’s a rash or dry patch, this can help instantly.


Amazon

This is one of the few things that worked on my cracked, chapped lips when I was on Accutane (aka the mothership of dryness).

Promising review: “Rosebud Salve has been a go-to lip balm for me for years. It protected against the windy biting Illinois winter winds and the dry Southern California air. I can rub it into my cuticles and put a light coating on my eyes when the skin feels dry and tired. I was SO HAPPY when they came out with these tubes because if I accidentally leave the tin in my car in the hot California sun, the salve leaks out.” —emily

Get it from Amazon for $8.15.

A pair of platform Doc Martens so you can wear the HECK out of these forever-cool boots for as long as you have feet. If you’re going to ~hop~ on a trend, may they be as durable and practical as these.


instagram.com

Reviewers say they can walk ALL day, EVERY day in these!

Promising review: “You will wear these non-stop. They’re so comfy and literally go with anything. My boots became my best friends and I regret not buying them sooner. They’re a must.” —Rosiecm

Get them from Amazon or Nordstrom for $180 (available in sizes 5–11 and two colors).

31.

A fancy-looking fruit-infuser water bottle, because it turns out staying hydrated (eight glasses a day, people!) is only feasible when it tastes like cherries. Does this make us children? Who cares.


Amazon

You can take out the fruit-infusing tube if you prefer regular water! And there’s a lock to ensure it’s spill- and leak-proof.

Promising review: “The bottle itself is high quality and has an unlocked mechanism so my water never spills. The infusion is awesome — I put strawberries, melon, and even mint sometimes in there and it really keeps it separated from the water and now I don’t need to buy infused water anymore. This is perfect for on-the-go. I bought one for my daughter and she’s been drinking more water and stoped drinking soda. ” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $21.97 (available in six colors).

32.

A Roku stick for streamlining all of your favorite programs to one TV — aka exactly what you’ll need to properly binge. We’re talking Netflix, HBO, cable alternatives, and sports and news shows, like CBS and ABC. No more overpaying for cable just to get a limited selection of shows — this’ll make sure everything is available for SO much less.


instagram.com

To be clear, you still need to pay for a subscription to Netflix, HBO, etc.! This just allows you to watch everything on one device (particularly handy if you don’t have cable).

Promising review “I have been paying $170 for cable and internet for years (its now $50 with just internet, so about $120 on cable). I didn’t have any special channels…no HBO, SHOtime….anything. Not even top tier cable. I had the middle package and it cost me an arm and a leg. I decided to cancel my cable long before I even bought the Roku. This thing is amazing. You pay the $30 for the device and THAT’S IT. No subscription fees, no hidden taxes, nothing! You can chose to add Hulu, Netflix, or HBO if you wanted to pay a subscription through them, or do what I do and just use my sisters :). It has turned my old TV into a smart TV. Best purchase ever. Buy this and ditch cable. You honestly won’t be disappointed.” —Alissa
