1.

A light-up sound machine that creates the ideal sleep environment for you and your baby. The multifunction device operates as both a sound machine and a night light, easily controlled by a remote or your phone.

Amazon

Promising review: “There are several sound machines in my house, but this is by far my favorite one. We even bring it on trips. The app is super easy to use. I programmed the settings so that the nursery is set for bedtime light/sound when baby’s bedtime rolls around every night. The sounds are soothing, especially the waves one, that I bring it on trips so baby has a consistent noise environment. If I have to change baby’s diaper in the middle of the night, I light it at the lowest levels, and it’s pretty easy to see without waking baby up too much. Though it’s a pricier than other sound machines, the ‘Ok to Wake’ function makes it worth it. I can see this being used for years and years. I love this so much, I would easily give it as a baby shower gift.” —Amazon Reviewer

Price: $59.99

I have three lamps and one fan connected to them, and now I don’t have to get out of my comfy bed when I forget to turn off something downstairs! Wooo!

Promising review: “So far this air purifier is performing beyond what I expected. My daughter has a ferret and a mouse and a fish in her room. Many times after the door is shut for long periods, the smell is horrible. One night of this running so far with the fan on medium, and the odor seems to be almost completely gone. We ordered a second purifier for a room downstairs. I haven’t investigated purchasing replacement filters quite yet, but we are pleased.” —Amazon Reviewer

Price: $99.99 (available in two colors)

A wood computer desk with metal legs with storage bag on the side


amazon.com

Promising review: “Ideal desk for bedrooms or living rooms. I have an apartment, so saving as much space as possible is always a priority. The desk literally took me 20 minutes to build by myself and even when it says recommends two people. The wood part of the desk is really solid and you’ll feel comfortable and secure with your computers on top.” —Amazon Reviewer

5.

A toilet night-light to add a pop of color to any bathroom. Equipped with motion detectors and eight LED colors to illuminate your toilet bowl all night long, it’s as helpful as it is hilarious.

A toilet with a blue colored light


amazon.com

Promising review: “We recently had a power outage and my bathroom is very dark even in daytime — no window. So the glowing toilet light was very helpful. I have introduced it to friends just for fun. I tell them not to turn the light on when they first enter, but to stop, and of course by the the motion detection has caught their entry and they also enjoy it. So it is helpful, but also has entertainment value. I mean when I saw it here, I laughed and knew I had to have one. Inexpensive and hilarious. Cleaning is not a problem. When I clean the toilet, I lift the light out and wipe it with antibacterial wipe before I replace it. Most of this is outside of the toilet.” —Amazon Reviewer

Price: $9.99

6.

An Echo Dot, aka the ultimate multipurpose speaker. Stream music, chat with Alexa, call friends hands-free, or voice control your smart home! Plus it’s super compact, so it can slide into any space with style and ease.

Amazon

Promising review: “I love my Echo Dot. I have four of them and they really help make my life easier. They can control almost everything — lights, locks, TV, music, thermostat. It hears you almost all of the time and I’ve run into very few issues with it overall. I really couldn’t ask for a more helpful device. It was even more handy when I found that I could get a battery base for it. The GGMM D3 base that I found lets me carry the Dot around pretty much anywhere. I love that I can take it into the bathroom with me and listen to music while I shower, or take it outside and listen to music. That’s really the only thing it was missing.” –Amazon Reviewer

Price: $39.99 (available in four colors)

Promising review: “Love it!!! We ordered the 8′ round and it worked out perfectly. It’s soft with variations of natural tones that have added interest and texture to our space. It doesn’t smell and its not dirty :). Those were reasons why I skipped on buying other types of natural fiber rugs.” —Amazon Reviewer

Promising review: “I purchased this storage bin along with some others for my freezer organization. It works perfectly for my needs. It fits great into my freezer and everything looks more organized and also is easy to access. It is easy enough to pull the drawer bins out to reach whatever you need from them. I would buy them again for sure.” —Amazon Reviewer

Amazon

The 24-piece set includes a soup ladle, a pasta server, multiple spoons and spatulas, a whisk, a basting brush, tongs, and measuring cups and spoons.

Promising review: “This set has everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. And finally I have matching utensils. Before buying this I had lots of mismatched utensils, many which were kind of damaged from long use. Now I have a set that looks good and covers all my needs. Of particular note: the tongs, and the multiple sizes of spatulas are really nice. I also appreciate the brush (I use it a lot for brushing oil or marinade on meats and veggies). And then you also get the full set of measuring cups and spoons. I can always use more of those. The cups have a nice pour spout, which makes them superior to my other sets.” –Amazon Reviewer

Price: $23.99+ (available in five colors)

12.

An artificial eucalyptus wall decor hanging above a bed and nightstand


Amazon

Promising review: “This product is perfect! I was looking at similar ones on Pinterest, so I was happy to find one available on Amazon. I hung this one outside on my balcony. I like it so much I’m probably going to buy more for other areas of my house. Absolutely recommend…a cute/easy way to dress up any wall.” —Amazon Reviewer

14.

A pair of velvet throw pillow covers for the ideal addition to any room. These plush, soft velvet throw covers are made from breathable fabric for maximum comfort, so you can sit back and relax in style.

Two cream colored throw pillows with pom pom borders


Amazon

Promising review: “Bought the 18”x18” size in the off-white color. I’ve been in search of a pom pom fringe pillow for a while now, but they are so expensive everywhere else. Material is soft and silky but not gaudily shiny. Doesn’t wrinkle and doesn’t require ironing. The quality and price totally meets my expectation and budget. I put 20”X20” pillow inserts in these pillow covers.” —Amazon Reviewer

Price: $14.99+ for a set of two (available in 23 colors and seven sizes)

15.

amazon.com

Promising review: “I can’t believe this is around $20. It comes in a really nice box that makes a great gift. I’ve been using it for awhile now and love it! I can fit my MacBook, keyboard, mouse, and coffee all on it. I overhang the edge a bit on my hard wooden desk, and it makes a great wrist wrest and protects my wood. It looks great! We’ll see how well it wears over time, but, frankly, at this price replacing it is not really an issue. Good writing surface too!” —Amazon Reviewer

Price: $19.99 (available in two colors)

17.

An indoor Wi-Fi security camera for the best way to keep a watchful eye on all of your Amazon packages. This security camera comes equipped with night vision, motion/sound detection, and two-way audio so you can stay safe and sleep soundly. Plus, it’s Alexa- and Google Home-compatible!

Amazon

Promising review: “So easy to place due to their light weight and small size. Very easy to set up. Great picture even in the dark. No batteries to change. I have these cameras everywhere and love that I can check the house when I hear that bump in the night and when I get that nagging question in my head at night about whether or not I shut the garage door; I can check it all out on my Echo Show! If I could change one thing, it would be that the sensitivity even on lowest setting is a bit much, but I’m sure they’ll fix that with a firmware update soon.” —Amazon Reviewer

Price: $34.99 for a set of two

A smart coffee maker that’s the caffeine machine of the 21st century! This 12-cup coffee maker pairs with Alexa to voice control your device. You can power it on/off or set your brewing strength without ever getting up. Your mornings will thank you!

A black coffee maker


Amazon

Promising review: “OK, so every once in a while the big manufacturers that have been around forever get a spark of brilliance and hit one out of the park. It is only my first week with this new coffee maker, but just going off what I have experienced so far, this is a home run. Feels well made and solid for the price. Our other coffee maker is a $2k+ Saeco super automatic, and while the Hamilton Beach is not comparable, it does have that tight solid feel to everything. However, the HB does beat the Saeco on some of the design elements. I love how the water and coffee are both accessible from the front. Let’s not forget the Alexa integration. I thought it might be a novelty, but using routines to time my coffee differently each day is really useful. I am astounded that this machine comes at this price point.” —Amazon Reviewer

Price: $81.77

A Wi-Fi projector to bring the movie theater to your house. This portable mini projector synchronizes with your smartphone to stream all your favorite shows and movies.

amazon.com

Promising review: “The projector came today and my 12-year-old daughter set it up with her laptop and had Youtube filling my dining room wall within minutes. The iPhone connection confused her, but we’ll figure it out together. The picture is so pretty in a dark room, but it’s also pretty visible even if the light is on in the room. The size of the projector seemed a little larger than I expected from the word ‘mini’ in the title, but it’s not too large for our purposes. I like that it included a tripod and remote in the box, too, so you could sit it on the floor or ceiling mount the projector.” —Amazon Reviewer

Price: $99.99

A robotic vacuum cleaner that’ll help take the stress out of cleaning. The self-charging vacuum cleans hard floors to medium-pile carpets for up to 100 minutes with ease. Bring your housekeeping into the future.

amazon.com

It comes with a remote control, two AAA batteries, a charging base, and AC power adapter, a cleaning tool, an extra set of filters, four side brushes, five cable ties, a welcome guide, and a 12-month warranty.

Promising review: “This comes in at half the cost of the 4-year-old Roomba that we previously used and out of the box, after a full nights’ charge, it worked flawlessly. The remote is easy to use and after a two minute look-over of the manual, the thing just WORKS. Roomba would basically never make it back on the charger; it would push it all over our kitchen but never actually park itself correctly. This did it on the first attempt and has done it daily (unless it gets stuck somewhere) ever since. The Eufy is much slimmer than the Roomba, so it is able to navigate some areas that were previously left untouched. The dust bin is always full or near full when we get home and check it, so it definitely is doing its job trying to keep up with our two large dogs and their fur.” —Amazon Reviewer

Price: $149.99 (available in two colors)

21.

A pair of two-toned cement planters to be your plants’ new best friend. These hand painted pots feature a drainage hole with a mesh circle to prevent dirt from clogging the bottom. Don’t have a green thumb? They’re also great for dressing up your faux plants!

Two small white and tan planters


Amazon

Promising review: “These pots are super cute and good quality! Very thick and sturdy. The packaging kept them in pristine condition, too! They’re the perfect size for a medium-sized succulent plant, or they’re heavy enough to allow a trailing plant to hang over the side. They do have a drainage hole and come with a soft mesh material to cover the hole with so soil won’t come out (but water can). Definitely recommended! (In fact, I’m probably going to buy another set!).” –Amazon Reviewer

Price: $25.99 for a set of two

22.

A breakfast sandwich maker that’ll take the hassle out of breakfast. With four easy steps, this breakfast sandwich maker cooks your custom sandwich in just five minutes. Perfect for brunch or a quick meal on the go.

A breakfast sandwich maker with two sandwiches on it


amazon.com

Promising review: “I completely love this breakfast sandwich maker!! It is a simple to use dual sandwich maker that makes two perfectly cooked breakfast sandwich in five minutes. I first thought that It would be a messy cook when I read in the instructions that you had to crack an egg directly onto the cooker itself. Then I figured out that I was completely wrong. When you crack the egg onto it, you place an English muffin right on top of the egg. This is great because it makes the egg cook partially against the bread. After you have all of your layers on, you just close the whole thing and put the timer to four minutes. It will beep when it is done, and there you have a perfectly cooked breakfast sandwich! Once you let it cool down it is a very easy clean. If you take a microfiber towel that is just a little wet, it cleans it perfectly.” —Amazon Reviewer

Price: $39.99

A chic shower curtain – it’s an easy way to elevate your restroom. This curtain comes with resin coating technology, allowing water to slide off the fabric curtain, so you don’t need a liner!

Amazon

Promising review: “I recently moved into a new apartment and wanted a new shower curtain. I use it with a liner, but you can use without (but the tassels would get wet). It’s got a nice fabric look and feel while still providing waterproof use. I’ve gotten several compliments from guests.” –Amazon Reviewer

Price: $27.99

A sheet of light dimming LED covers to help dim bothersome technology lights. Stick one on your cable box, laptop, or any electronic device that’s keeping you up at night! It’s a small sticker that solves a big problem.

amazon.com

Promising review: “I have a media PC in my living room under my TV and directly across from the main couch. The LED is extremely bright and obnoxious, especially in low-light situations. I can’t remember how I found these, but I thought it was worth a shot. It dimmed the LED the perfect amount and I can definitely still see that the PC is on, but without the annoying blue beacon that can be seen from space. The variety of options included guarantee that you should have the correct size to dim whatever LEDs that you have. Highly recommended.” –Amazon Reviewer

Price: $7.89

A LED laser star projector that’ll light up your room and transform your ceiling or wall into a galaxy night sky. Relax under the stars with a soothing blue or green color.

A 15-pack of bamboo charcoal air purifying bags to help remove foul odors from your space. The activated charcoal bags act like a sponge to absorb and neutralize bad odors, so you can take a sigh of relief.

one of the small gray bags hanging in a closet


amazon.com

Promising review: “Absolutely the best value for money! And of course the odor elimination works. It works with any other charcoal packets. Btw, there is no scent to them (which is kinda the point :)). The charcoal bags are not meant to have scent which would cover the smells. They are meant to absorb whatever the smell around them is…good or foul. It’s simply a porous material with a great absorbing quality. These bags are sewn really nicely. I also love the color of the bags, and the little button and cotton rope loops. It makes it easy to stash them or hang them just about anywhere. I put them in my fridge and freezer, the half bath downstairs, the microwave and oven, the front laundry washer (not when using it), both of my cars, etc.” –Amazon Reviewer

Price: $23.95

A Squatty Potty, because it’s hilariously brilliant. This toilet stool helps you mimic a natural squat to properly align your colon for an easier bathroom experience. It’s a Shark Tank success story for a reason — it just works!

A white toilet foot stool


Amazon / Via amazon.com

Promising review: “I was hesitant about how much the Squatty would impact my GI conditions, but this is amazing. Although the stance is a bit awkward to experience at first, the results are immediate. After finishing, my lower abdomen is SO much more relaxed than a bowel movement without the Squatty. There is NONE of the strain/tightness/cramping I usually feel in my lower abdomen.” —Amazon Reviewer

Price: $24.99

A cleaning gel that helps you clean out all those hard-to-reach cracks and crevices. Clean out your car, keyboard, remotes — the possibilities are endless and the results are so satisfying!

A pink cleaning gel cleaning out a keyboard


Amazon

Promising review: “Works perfectly! I had always been worried these products would sink into my keyboard, break apart and I wouldn’t be able to get it out. Once you knead it though, it doesn’t break apart and it took the dust and grime off of a 6-year-old gaming keyboard. The keyboard would look new if it weren’t for the wear marks on the keys from using the keyboard for so long.” –Amazon Reviewer

Price: $15.99 for a pack of five
