Amazon

This charges 10 percent faster than regular chargers and works with Qi-enabled devices, such as iPhone 11, Samsung Galaxy S10, and AirPod cases.

Promising review: “This is the perfect charger. The shape it is manufactured in is perfect for just dropping your phone on and it starts charging. No need to move the phone around to find the sweet spot. This even works if you have the Apple battery pack. My wife uses it too. She has a slim case with a PopSocket and it still charges.” —bam

Or a CHEF iQ smart pressure cooker if you’re looking for a robot with a little more head chef potential. You can connect it to your phone via the CHEF iQ app to control and monitor your settings and discover guided recipes that’ll send their precise parameters straight to your cooker. It does most of the work, using a built-in scale, smart sensors, auto pressure release, 1,000+ presets, and more to make your old pressure cooker feel like it’s from the 1600s.

CHEF iQ

Promising review: “I love my CHEF iQ Smart Cooker for a lot of reasons but mainly the smart auto pressure release, so I no longer have to cross my fingers and hope my dinner doesn’t explode in my face when I release the pressure valve by hand. It also has a handy built-in scale, which is super useful when a recipe calls for grams and the American education system once again fails me. On top of doing everything your old pressure cooker could do plus a whole heck of a lot more, my CHEF iQ Smart Cooker just looks a lot sleeker, meaning I can leave it out on the counter without it being an eyesore.” —Melanie Aman, BuzzFeed Staff

A spinning makeup brush cleaner because cleaning and drying your brushes by hand takes forever, and you definitely don’t have time for that! So, why not let this device do the work for you? It swirls your brushes in soapy water until leftover makeup, dead skin cells, dirt, and debris are gone, and then spins the brush until it’s dry.


Amazon, amazon.com

It comes with the brush spinner, charging station, eight rubber collars that securely connect the makeup brush to the spinner, a glass bowl, and a splash guard ring.

Promising review: “I use my makeup brushes daily, and they get filthy. I’ve used other cleaners and this product wins hands down. The wand and the cleaner itself takes all the hard work and does it for you, not to mention that the brushes dry in seconds. This is the cleanest my brushes have ever been. Highly recommend.” —Valerie

Get it from Amazon for $23.90+ (available in two colors).

Promising review: “The Ember Mug2 will spoil you. It keeps my tea warm for over an hour while roaming around — no lid or base required. Recharges in a couple hours on the base plate with wall plug. Not cheap but so worth it if you like hot beverages. I will never drink tepid tea again!” —NancyTX

Or try the Tile Pro if you want to extend the range from 200 feet to 400 feet.

Promising review: “I normally don’t write reviews for products, but the Tile is too fantastic not to yell it from the rooftops! I am always losing my keys or my phone and with the Tile it makes it so easy to find my keys in a flash or find my phone! All you have to do is attach it to your keys and you’re all set! When you misplace your keys, you go into the app on your phone (which is super user-friendly) and tap find my keys. It then rings your Tile that is attached to your keys and if they are not in an area where they can ring, it shows you the location of the tile, which is also very helpful! If you misplace your phone, you can double tap the middle button on the tile and it will ring your phone! It is such an amazing product and I am thinking about attaching them to everything in my house!!” —Brooke

A Tushy bidet attachment because every toilet should have bidet capabilities by now imho! You’ll use less toilet paper and feel so much cleaner and more refreshed that you’ll wonder why you waited so long to get one.


Tushy

Promising review: “This is the bidet I use and I 100% recommend to my friends, family, and to you, dear reader. Installation was pretty simple; from start to poop it took about 15 minutes. The sensation is truly something if you’ve never experienced it before, but the cool water will probably feel good once it’s summer and my apartment gets nice and steamy. (There’s also a version of this attachment that sprays warm water if you’re into that!)” —Melanie Aman, BuzzFeed Staff

Another promising review: “Absolutely love it! Was super easy to install and now I’ll never go back to just regular ol’ toilet paper because this makes me feel so fresh and clean!” —Kevin B

Some long-distance friendship lamps so that every time you touch yours, theirs lights up in a custom color, letting them know that you’re thinking about them — and vice versa!

Split-screen image of one Model touching the lamp and other seeing their's light up


The Grommet

Promising review: “Such an amazing product. Really creative way of just telling someone you are thinking of them. And a great idea for young kids to connect with their grandparents too in an independent way since they don’t often have the words or attention to hold a full conversation and can’t read yet, but they can figure out that when they want to say I love you to Grandma, they touch the lamp and it turns ‘their’ color, and then Grandma can reply using her color to say I love you back. It’s simple. It’s sweet. And it’s a great gift to keep families close.” —Kathleen

It’s only compatible with Pilot FriXion pens (one is included with the notebook).

Promising review: “I love it! I will admit that the transition from paper to digital when it comes to notes is not an easy one for me, but this is a fabulous way to sort of split the difference. You still have the action of writing (which I find really important in meetings and brainstorming sessions) but without the consumption of paper and countless notebooks. And, being able to throw things into the cloud makes them accessible no matter where you’re working — handy.” —Meredith

UncommonGoods

It’s totally mess free since it just uses light. Plus, the pillowcases are machine washable.

Promising review: “This pillowcase is really thick, durable material. It’s not the softness but it will last! Also the picture is really bright and lasts for a while. Description states that the picture will last about five minutes but it lasts much longer, which is great for us. The kids like to draw pictures at bedtime and leave them for me to find when I come in later to check on them.” —Homeschool substitute teacher

They don’t have the regular nose piece like most sunglasses that gets stuck in your hair if you push them up on your head, and they’re so perfectly fit that I never have a problem with them sliding down my nose. Wrap around protection from bugs/wind/dust but also a nice air flow for ventilation. When I do push them up, I can easily wear them as a cool-looking hair band and no one is the wiser. I have two pairs (reflective blue and clear pink) and will be buying a few more colors soon. Absolutely love them.” —LocketShark

A robot vacuum because, idk about you, but to me, one of the future’s greatest appeals is robots doing ALL of the cleaning while you hang out with your friends via hologram, take a lil’ joyride in your flying car, or do literally anything else.

A child sleeping on the floor as the robot vacuum is running


Amazon

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

A space pen – it can write at any angle, even upside-down! You can use it to write under water, in extreme temperatures, or even in zero gravity, if you find yourself often needing to jot something down in less than ideal conditions. In other words, yes it’s basically that pen from Seinfeld.

Even though this pen feels like it could be from the future, the patented ink cartridge was designed by Paul Fisher for NASA in the 1960s! The rainbow titanium nitride coating is just a wonderful bonus because it looks cool and keeps the pen from tarnishing.

Promising review: “I keep this in my back pants pocket because it is small enough that I can do so. It gets sat on, dropped, and occasionally sent through the washing machine…and it is still as good as new.

I have had worn this pen on my person, daily, for the last FOUR YEARS, and the coating is as good as ever. It needs refills every once in a while, but other than that, no maintenance is needed.” —Segv

Promising review: “I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend’s sister-in-law who lamented not having a green thumb. I was somewhat apprehensive, having read a few reviews that mentioned pods not spouting. However, in the two months that the sis-in-law has had the AeroGarden, the growth has been tremendous. I’m constantly in awe when she sends me pics of the new growth. Only one pod failed to spout, but she reached out to customer service, and they are sending a replacement for that particular pod. All the others have grown quite large, and last night I received a picture of their dinner using herbs grown with the AeroGarden. Impressive!” —Mary A. Walls

An Echo Dot you can use to *clears throat* stream music, display the time, set alarms and timers, ask Alexa any possible question you can think of, check the news and weather, control your smart home, make hands-free calls, detect smoke alarms and glass breaking while you’re away, connect to multiple Echo Dots throughout your home, and more!

The device is also designed to provide multiple layers of privacy protections and controls, including a microphone “off” button that electronically disconnects the microphone. Yup, this way neither the government nor Google can get all in your business while you’re chatting. 😉

Promising review: “I preordered this Echo Dot with clock and began using it the first day available on Nov. 5, 2020. I have multiple third generation Echo Dots with clock and I love the upgrade to the fourth generation Echo Dot with clock. I chose the twilight blue color and it’s great looking in person. It’s a nice break from the charcoal and sandstone color but still looks elegant and sleek in design. The light ring on the base and digital clock display are brighter and more crisp than the third generation Dot. It’s very easy to read. The speakers and microphone are improved as well. The wire is a light grey color and the 15-watt adapter is rectangular in shape versus the square shape of the third generation 15-watt power adapter. The manual buttons to control the Echo are on top similar to last years model, but slightly recessed towards the back so they are not in view when staring directly at the front of the digital clock face. The speaker is more full in front of the Dot and raises in the back where the wire plugs into the Dot. Setup was easy. I am considering trading in my olde third generation Echo Dots with digital clock for additional fourth generation Echo Dots with digital clock instead.” —Becca

Some LED faucet lights that change color based on the temperature of the water so you can be sure it isn’t too hot before sticking a finger in.

Three images of water coming out of a faucet in three different colors


Amazon

These lights use a built-in generator, so no need to worry about batteries or electricity! Each light has three colors that will change depending on the temperature of the water being used.

Promising review: “Love love these LED lights. It’s very easy to set up, the price is right, and it’s durable. I bought these lights over two months ago and they are still working. When the kitchen lights are off and the faucet is on, it brightens up the entire kitchen sink. I love that it changes colors when the temperature changes, that makes it easier and safer for the kids to know when the temperature is hot or cold. I would buy these again in a heartbeat.” —Judean C.

A sleek smart mirror that 1) lets you take live fitness classes with top trainers from your own home while 2) simultaneously tracking your performance and optimizing your experience based on your own preferences. It’s on the pricier side, but the array of options it offers makes it a pretty impressive device.


Mirror

It’s also Oprah-approved, since she added it to her list of favorite things in 2020!

Promising review: “This past spring, I stopped going to OrangeTheory and lifting at my gym. To attempt to maintain fitness at home, I did a good amount of running and bodyweight exercises. Once things opened back up, I decided I really enjoyed working out at home (convenience, etc.) and started to look at options. After exploring many things (Peloton, etc.), I can tell you without a doubt that the MIRROR reigns above all. As an example, I used the Peloton app for running, strength, and a little yoga. Nothing bad to say about Peloton. Geat personalities and solid instruction, but it (and many other online fitness options) feel more like a “side dish” where MIRROR is consistently a ‘main course.’ The way the MIRROR structures their workouts, presents through the app, and has you working out is an awesome experience, regardless if it’s yoga, cardio and strength (my favorite), or stretching classes. The instructors are amazing — come across as genuine people with their own personalities and ways to motivate you — and, they’re working hard as you in the workouts. I couldn’t pick a favorite because they each have great qualities. I’ve probably taken the most classes with Katie — it’s funny because she’s very chill, but before you know it she’s lured you into a grueling workout that leaves you gasping for air at the end (for cardio/strength) — LOL! Chris has intense energy, is super likeable, and you can’t help but want to work hard to keep going! Lance is a cool guy and will have you grinding out some serious reps. I’ve really come to enjoy Armond’s boxing and strength class — challenging and a nice way to mix up movement, plus he’s inspiring. Love XTina’s energy! Gerren is really creative and fun with his workouts! And, my #1 reason to choose the MIRROR is the entire day is packed with live classes from morning until night! It’s really inspiring to have a live class to commit to and show up at. The amount of live classes and variety of workouts are outstanding! I love my MIRROR!” —Jason

A wireless pocket projector in case you wanna be able to whip a full-on cinema experience out of your pocket whenever and wherever you want.


Yi Yang / BuzzFeed

Promising review: “I actually own and love this pocket projector. Despite its compact size, this little guy can actually project quite far (I tested it at 14 feet or so, and the image measures approximately 50 inches by 60 inches). I’ve used it to watch films and shows, and it truly feels like I have my own personal movie theater. (The darker the room, the clearer and crisper the images are, so I always use it at night with the lights out. However, blackout shades would work, too!) It can connect to a phone or computer, AND it has its own speakers (though you can connect it to an external speaker as well). For longer binge sessions, I like to have it plugged in so it doesn’t run out of juice, but it can last through a couple of 40-minute episodes unplugged just fine. The best part is once I’m done with it, it fits nicely into my drawers for storage. Easy peasy.” —Yi Yang, BuzzFeed Staff

A smart digital frame for anyone who gets bit by the redecorating bug more often that they can keep up with. This could be the last frame you ever buy! It allows you to upload and display an unlimited number of paintings and photos that you can cycle through whenever you want via the touchscreen or an app.

Promising review: “I shoot wildlife photography. I have so many great pictures that it would be impossible to put them all over my house — let alone pay for the printing and framing of these shots. So I began my journey looking for a large format digital frame that I could load my photos to via Wi-Fi. I found a very limited number of them. Fortunately, I found the Meural Canvas frame. It was something that was aesthetically pleasing to hang in my house, shows my photos in exquisite clarity and coloring, and is large enough to show their beauty. While it is expensive, if you really analyze the cost, it’s about what it would cost to print and frame three large photos. So in that respect, it’s a bargain.” —Soundman Art

A sunlight simulation alarm clock perfect for anyone who finds other alarm clocks to be a little startling. This one gently wakes you up by gradually increasing its brightness from 10% to 100%, displaying a charming sunrise right in your bedroom.

This alarm clock comes with 16 adjustable volume levels so you won’t wake up clutching your heart and double checking that you’re still breathing after being scared half to death.

Promising review: “I’ve never been a ‘morning person’ and alarm clocks have historically been loud and obnoxious options to wake up to, so I decided to try this. Now it’s not magic, it hasn’t made me all of a sudden cheerful in the morning, but it’s a much more calming alternative. Other than the obvious reasons for trying this kind of clock, this particular one has many awesome settings! It has multiple different levels of lights, along with different colors of lights. It has an alarm function and a clock function. It can also double as a sound machine that you can use to play soothing sounds at night. When using the alarm function, the sunrise comes on 10 minutes before the alarm goes off. You can also plug your phone into it for charging. I love the versatility of this alarm clock and the instructions are very easy to follow. You should get it.” —JRRinBoston

A Samsung TV cleverly designed to avoid being an eyesore when not in use by disguising itself as a beautiful picture frame. The motion sensor can even detect when you’re present and change the display to your favorite art whenever you enter the room!

Promising review: “This is a beautiful TV – a little more formal for our living room. We have enjoyed the art reproductions on the screen as well as the superior picture! The colors pop on this screen. The frame gives it a streamlined look. One nice surprise is that the sound is actually perfect! After spending so much on the TV, we did not need a sound bar! Yay!” —Susan

And a motion-activated toilet light that’ll make you wonder if a portal to the future is at the bottom of the bowl! Spoiler alert, it’s (probably) not, but at least now you won’t have to stumble around in the dark half asleep when all you want is to pee without completely waking yourself up or sustaining any injuries.

Promising review: “I’ve had this device for a little while now and I absolutely love it! Light detector and motion detector work together to only turn the toilet light on when it senses darkness and movement. I love that there are 16 different colors you can choose from; and with each 16 colors you can raise or lower the brightness which kind of makes color choices even bigger if you consider the different color brightness a new color. You can either leave your toilet light cycling through all 16 colors while on, or you have the option of choosing one of the colors and keeping it on that color. I ended up getting two of these toilet lights for both of my bathrooms and my guests, as well as I, love it.” —Sergio Rios
