Promising review: “These things are amazing. I have one in almost every room of my house. The light is just enough to be able to see at night to use the restroom or navigate the house without turning every light on. I love that the USB ports are built in — no more looking for an adapter. AND the plugs are set far enough apart you can plug some of the bigger things like Google assistant or large AC adapters and still have plenty of room!!! These are a must have in a tech or smart home.” —SeiranCrow

A poop bag dispenser with a flashlight so you’ll never have to play guessing games at night with the *one* substance nobody ever wants to play games with. It also comes preloaded with 15 waste bags and attaches easily to your dog’s leash!


amazon.com

Promising review: “I needed a poop bag holder that I could attach to my leash. While there are plenty of cheap quality plastic options out there, I went with this option because it had the added feature of a flashlight. I’m not always home in time to walk my puppy before the sun goes down so having the light attached to the holder is perfect (especially when I forget my phone on the way out of my house). I highly recommend if you’ll be trying to scoop the poop in the dark.” —RunningGal

A sparkling-wine saver that will keep your bubblies bubbling so you can pop your prosecco any day of the week and know you won’t have to waste one single drop.

A model sealing and then pumping the saver cap on a bottle of wine


Amazon / Via amazon.com

I purchased one of these at the aggressive behest of a friend, and it’s LEGIT. I told myself I was a Red Wine Lady my whole life because it was easier to save for later, but now that I don’t live in constant fear of wasting the bubbly stuff, I am an All Wine Lady and have finally achieved my truest form.

Promising review: “This product was a real surprise for me, I was never able to keep my bubblies as fresh and bubbly after the first opening. Three days later, and my expensive Brut tastes just as nice. Frankly, this is probably going to become my go-to gift from now on… pair a nice bottle to it and voila! Thumbs up!” —RonBY

A bottle of Drop It, a natural wine sulfate and tannin remover that works its magic on your glass in just 20 seconds, so you can finally enjoy a glass of Pinot knowing you’ve spared yourself the infamous Post-Wine Headache or allergic reactions.


Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

It’s also a lot more cost-effective and environmentally-friendly than wine wands or other competitors — a single bottle of this can be used to treat up to 55 glasses of wine, as opposed to wands that can only do a few glasses each before they get tossed. Drop It recommends 1-2 drops for each glass of white wine, 2-3 for a glass of red, and 7-9 if you’re treating the whole bottle at once. Once it’s in the glass, swirl lightly for 20 seconds, and you should be raring to go!

Promising review: “I became really sensitive to wine in my thirties and through a lot of trial and painful error, I thought I might have to give up on wine altogether. Then I found out about the preservatives being a possible cause and decided to give this product a shot. So glad I did!! I’m still pretty sensitive to reds but this helps tremendously so that I can have a glass with dinner without a headache immediately settling in. Whites cause me no problem what so ever! I love that it takes so little product to make a difference to a whole bottle. Just a few drops, a few minutes and we are good to go.” —CastawayIrons

A memory foam seat cushion for your tushy so effective at relieving pressure from your tailbone and back that you can decide any chair in the house is your work-from-home chair now, no matter how determined it looks to bug your spine.

Gray memory seat cushion fitted on a rolling chair


amazon.com

Promising review: “This seat cushion is SO GOOD. I have had a lot of problems with pressure on my tailbone and resulting back problems, and they’ve been getting worse. I will be honest, I have only tried the old-fashioned medical donuts, so I don’t have much to compare it to. However, this cushion is nicely thick, and the cutout and contours are so perfect and they take all pressure off my tailbone. After working for a few hours, I got up and for the first time in almost a year, didn’t have pain. Normally, the pressure on my tailbone becomes pretty bad while sitting, but produces an even sharper pain upon standing. Feeling so great for the first time prompted me to buy another for work so I could keep this one at home and never be without it! Hopefully, reducing the pressure on my tailbone will also help it heal, but even being free from pain is wonderful.” —CSC

An internet-beloved time-marked water bottle you can get in a bajillion different colors to remind you to stay hydrated during the day and know exactly how much you drank.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I love the finish on the bottle! I hate holding wet water bottles and this does NOT sweat! It also holds two full bottles of 16.9-oz. packages water bottles so it’s very easy to get my full water intake on the go! Easy to carry, fits in my car’s cup holders perfectly (not big at all like some water bottles). I got the ombré purple to teal and it’s very true to color. Easy to clean, wide enough for bottle brushes, and the straw stays put. I also love how I just push the little button by the mouthpiece and it just pops open quick for easy drinking (if you’re driving and don’t need to be messing around opening bottles😉). Highly recommend this water bottle. For the price, it’s amazing! Keeps my water cool for hours too.” —Alicia

A sunrise simulation clock to trick your human brain into thinking you’re already dappled in the light of a bright, sunshiny day when you wake up, even if you’re up before the sunrise or nowhere near a window.

A sunrise alarm clock in three stages of lighting up from dim to brighter to brightest over the course of a half hour


Amazon

You can sync this alarm clock with an app on your phone (or with an Alexa or Google Home), and it will gradually brighten the room with red-tinted light designed to fight grogginess in the minutes leading up to your wakeup. By the time your alarm goes off, your eyes will have already adjusted to the “daylight,” so you won’t be as tempted to hit snooze. It also has customizable sounds to wake you up, like “Hawaiian waves.”

Promising review: “I’ve had this alarm clock for about a month or two now. I was having issues waking up and getting motivated to get out of bed when it was early in the morning and really cold. I had low expectations; I was hoping that it would at least keep the correct time and turn on every morning since it was so cheap, but I have been blown away by this little thing. It reliably connects to Wifi and can be controlled with your phone! It can get the time from the internet, so it never runs fast or slow. There are so many different settings to use, but I do 10 minutes of sunrise before the alarm (the shortest amount of time). By the time the alarm goes off, my room is bright enough to feel motivated to get up at 5:30 am. The alarms are kind of cheesy sounding, and you cant fully turn off the sound, but the piano one is my favorite and it is nice to listen to over and over. I don’t use sleep settings so the light/alarm noise will run for 10 minutes and then turn off. I’ve never used the radio function but it seems pretty straightforward to use. The speaker is not great quality, but that’s not what I bought it for. I gotta say, it’s definitely been easier to wake up early with this alarm for sure.” —emass24

A painless, mint-flavored teeth-whitening pen that actually does what all those teeth-whitening toothpastes *say* they’re gonna do. It’s sensitive gum-friendly and in just a week it can help lighten up years’ worth of stains from coffee, tea, wine, or just … you know. Existing as a human with teeth.


Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

^^ That is my human face making that awkward “look at my teeth!!” grimace up there. I am very vigilant about using teeth whitening toothpaste twice a day, but it’s truly no match for my tea/dessert consumption, I suppose. I used this pen maybe five times over the course of a week in between the before and after on this (you’re supposed to use it more often than that, but I am lazy and forgetful). It didn’t irritate my gums and all, it doesn’t have a weird after taste, and it’s also just, like. FAST. I wasn’t expecting to see results so quickly. I use the pen once or twice a week now just to maintain it. Very little hassle and extremely worth the money.

Promising review: “So I was on the verge of spending a crap ton of money for dental whitening, and when I found this product I thought I’d give it a try. As a former smoker/avid coffee drinker among other things, my teeth were neglected for YEARS. I began taking care of hygiene again but my teeth weren’t lighting up. Now, ONE WEEK of using this (along with brushing) and my teeth are becoming WHITER. This product saved me well over a $200+. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!” —JC

A portable dual monitor for your laptop so you can go all “Professor X” on your work flow no matter *where* you are — a real perk now that a lot of people are working remotely.

A laptop with a small black monitor attached to the existing monitor on a desk

This is compatible with Mac, PC, and Chrome laptops between 13 and 17 inches, and attaches with device-safe metal plates. The magnetic pull is strong enough for you to take your laptop from room to room without undoing your setup, but also easy enough to remove that you can tuck everything into a backpack quickly when you’re on the move. You can even rotate the display to your preferences, if you want it at an angle!

Promising review: “I’ve been using the SideTrak for a week now and it has been an absolute game-changer for me. The instructions were easy to follow, and installation a breeze. The SideTrak was first whipped into action during a 2 hour long ride in my car as a passenger, and I was utterly impressed with how much I got done with ease, in that amount of time! Additionally, I’ve gotten a lot more use out of the SideTrak than I imagined— such as when I’m lounging in my backyard, kitchen, living room, pool… anywhere outside of the room in my office, the possibilities are endless! I’m all about efficiency and maximizing my time and the SideTrak has contributed largely in those areas. Thank you.” —Ratana K.

I ended up buying almost 10 more for gifts over the holidays especially for all my friends and family who have to work at home during these times.” —Sharise

A set of adhesive cable clips you can stick to your desk to keep your charging cables locked in one convenient place, so your desk will no longer look like a maze designed for an existentially-fraught bug with all the wires crossed on it.

Promising review: “It was always a pain to reach down the side of my bed to reach my chargers, not to mention the wad of cables I’d have to sift through just to charge my phone. I finally searched for a solution and came across these. They’re great! They’re really easy to stick on and they stay in place. I haven’t had an issue of them falling off. Whenever I need to charge a device they’re right next to me, easy to reach and untangled. I definitely recommend!” —Nelis Perez

A soft silicone ear-saver and mask-extender that works overtime on problem-solving — not only does it take some of the pressure off your ears, but it helps make a more personalized fit on masks with elastic straps that aren’t the right size, so you get a perfect fit every time.

Amazon

Psst — a lot of reviewers mention this worked great for kids’ masks, especially since sizing for kids’ faces is all over the place and difficult to measure out when you’re buying masks online!

Promising review: “A small investment saves a fortune. Taking a mask on and off your ears is difficult, especially if you wear hearing aids. My audiologist recommended these because so many people were coming in for lost hearing aids. Hearing aids are super expensive. Now I don’t worry. This is very comfortable. I love this product.” —Chicky Boom Boom

Promising review: “I attend Effect Fitness (a high intensity fitness studio in ATL). I have tried so many deodorants and nothing has been able to tame the funk caused by ATL’s heat & Dooley’s workouts….. until now. After multiple classes, I am still FRESH! I will continue to use this product because it helps keep the funk away and the product smells lovely. Also, this product didn’t cause skin irritation, dark pits or ruined clothes. I have only used this product for about two weeks, but so far so good.” —Teshia F.

A TubShroom, a little gizmo you can stick in your shower drain to catch all your hair before it clogs up your pipes and becomes a living nightmare. The hair coils around it to make it even easier to remove, making it both handy *and* semi-horrifying!

Promising review: “I hardly ever write reviews but this thing is so amazing I had to share. With every shower I take, I shed a TON of hair and (as you can see from the picture) stick it to the wall so that no hair goes down my drain. I thought this method was working out well but my drain was continuing to stop up. I figured it must be my sister’s fault since I was so good about not letting any hairs go down the drain, but I went ahead ordered the TubShroom after seeing advertisements on Facebook. I got this thing and after only two showers, it collected a crap ton of my hair that I didn’t catch. It really is so easy to install and wipe away the hair, exactly like the videos. Awesome invention and I’m super happy with this purchase!” —Megan K.

Promising review: “I’ve always been kind of sick. I throw up on long car rides, I can’t read in the car, I get horrible migraines 24/7, etc. Recently I changed medications and because of that, my migraines came back with a vengeance. Thinking there was nothing I could do I kind of gave up, until, I was looking at BuzzFeed and saw this in their recommended. I thought it could help with any car sickness that I would get but man I was not giving these enough credit! Since I have bought them I where ALL.THE.TIME. I wear them in and out of the car, to bed, and just around the house. I no longer feel nauseous and my migraines are almost non existent. Whoever invented these are a freaking god! I don’t know think I could ever live without these! BUY THESE!! They’re so worth it.” —JohnDz

An earwax removal kit, so you don’t have to wait until your yearly physical for your doctor to be like “um WHOA” and fix it for you. This is quicker, easier, and will be a huge relief for those of us waxy individuals who sometimes wake up in the morning with an ear so fully clogged up that it feels like you’re underwater.

Y’all, this stuff is no joke — you can check out the earwax removal kit customer reviews to see the GOBS it is taking outta people’s canals.

Promising review: “My right ear has been plugged up for months. I squirted warm water in there, peroxide, tried various ear scraper tools, then just gave up. A month or so later, I saw this product at local CVS, and gave it a try. Laid on couch with several drops in my ear for a half hour. I could hear weird fizzing noises. Then I flushed warm water in my ear with the included soft bulb syringe, and out came the culprit. Had to have been deep in there.” —fixitforgood

A ring size adjuster for loose rings, so you can get the *precise* right fit without spending precisely way too much money to get your jewelry resized.


Emma Lord/BuzzFeed

As you can see, this is my own human hand pictured above. I love wearing rings, but my fingers are always weirdly between two sizes — enter this plastic coil, which makes up the size difference in the hottest second.

Promising review: “This product was recommended to me by a jewelry store. I had a ring that was 1.5 sizes too large and after trying to re-size it at three different jewelers (who all told me the setting was too risky for resizing — risked losing the stones), I gave up. One recommended checking out this product and I’m so glad I did. It made the ring wearable for me, using the largest option, I was able to comfortably take it from a size 8 down to a 6.5. I’ve washed my hands and put the ring on/off with this on and it seems to stay in place fairly well. Was very easy to cut to size, I’m happy!” —KR

A Java Sok, aka a reusable iced coffee cup insulator you can use to keep your drink cold *and* your fingers from freezing off. I know some of y’all are the type who are chugging iced coffee year round and I humbly offer you this solution to letting your hand go numb.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I cannot say enough positive things about the Java Sok. As a regular iced coffee drinker (Starbucks on the daily), this thing is truly awesome! I use it in the car, office, home…everywhere! I will be purchasing the other sizes and will get a few as gifts for my office peeps. Added bonus…seems to keep my drink colder longer. Buy the Java Sok…you will not be disappointed!” —Lyndsey L

A Squatty Potty, one of those internet-famous stools you can put at the base of your toilet to prop your feet up on while you ~go~. The placement helps align your colon to make the process a whole lot easier and faster — like, 20 seconds compared to several minutes! — so you don’t end up watching all of TikTok while you’re waiting yourself out.

Amazon

Psst — a lot of reviewers with chronic constipation and other gastrointestinal issues that get them ~backed up~ swear by this!

Promising review: “This thing provided relief INSTANTLY! I have to take pain meds for severe back problems, which means I get blocked easily…even if I am on a liquid diet. The dreaded 24-hour prep process for colonoscopies takes 48-hours and twice the prep for me and there may still be stuff left over because my body hates pooping these days. It normally takes an hour or more before I just have to give up and use a suppository or enema. I take massive amounts of chewable gummy fiber, eat enough vegetables for my entire family, and drink water as if I were an ocean creature…at least 8-10 glasses a day (usually more…much more). If I drink coffee, I have to pee but that’s about it. And I pee a lot with all that water. This stool is the FIRST thing that made this process easier. It arrived in its own box. I thought…it must be special. I unwrapped its plastic and placed it in its new glorious position. Then I decided, ‘What the heck, let’s give it a go!’ AND I DID! No struggling. No squirming. No straining. No squeezing. No grimacing. No difficulty. Just GO! THANK YOU GOD!” —NoneYa

An smudgeproof eyeliner stamp so you can finally get the perfect cat-eye on the first go without having to ~wing it~ (read: wasting eight cotton balls, half a bottle of eye makeup remover, and all of the minutes you were setting aside to make your morning coffee).


Amazon, amazon.com

Psst — this tool is double-sided, so you can choose the thickness of your wing, and comes with two stamp pens — one for each eye!

Promising review: “This stamp has totally changed (and elevated) my eyeliner game! I was a little dubious at first because I have literally, tried everything in an attempt to make a flawless wing/cat-eye look. I’ve never been able to master it and therefore, had pretty much given up on trying to make that happen for me. THIS STAMP IS A GAME-CHANGER! The first couple of times you use it will be some trial and error to determine where the appropriate starting point is on your lid, but once you get that down, it’s literally SO EASY and looks perfect every time. I stamp and then fill in the rest of my eyeliner with my normal product — presto! Perfect wings in three minutes. And it DOES NOT budge. You can put this on at 6 a.m. and it still looks good at 6 p.m. It is also easy to remove with any drug store makeup remover or towelette. If it came in other colors I’d buy them all!” —J.S. Massie

A detangling brush with an easy-to-hold handle that’s so effective on all hair types that it’s amassed over 17,000 5-star reviews on Amazon — people swear by it for detangling fast without pulling on or damaging hair (or buying an entire shelf’s worth of detangling creams that never *quite* do the trick).


amazon.com

This brush is designed to work on all hair types, but reviewers with 2C through 4C hair say it has worked well for them. It also works on wet *and* dry hair, so you don’t have to time out your brushing.

Promising review: “My daughter has a lot of hair that tangles very easily. Her knots get so bad that they needed to be cut from her head at times and even after cut those knots would not come undone despite pulling with all of our might. To me that was evidence that her hair is just impossible. Then we came across this brush. We saw a commercial for a different brand but when I logged onto Amazon I saw that this brush had far better reviews and has been around for quite some time. I ordered it and was not sure what to expect as many other detangling brushes simply failed even after adding large amounts of leave in conditioner and detangling spray to her hair. Lo and behold, this brush does as it promises. IT WORKS! My daughter went from dreading getting her hair brushed to doing it herself. She is 5 and says, this brush is relaxing. I highly recommend this product. It will save you time, money and sanity. It should say NO MORE TEARS FOR PARENT AND CHILD.” —Nicole W.

A set of airtight glass meal prep containers that are safe in the oven and the microwave, meaning you can cook, store, reheat, and eat out of ’em without *any* extra dishes to deal with. OH! They’re also stackable, so no space wasted in the fridge. We love to see (and eat) it.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I ordered these food containers to replace the original (cheap) containers that came with the lunch box I had ordered from Amazon as well. The glass contains seem very solid and sturdy. Obviously, they are heavier than plastic containers which people should have in mind if they buy them to put their kids’ lunch in heavy glass containers into the already heavy backpack. The containers are easy to stack and even easier to clean, for lazy people like me, they are even dishwasher-safe. If you stack them, I wouldn’t stack more than three just to be safe. They have the perfect size to fit your lunch in and since it is glass, you can directly prep your lunch in the oven in those containers or freeze if you prep more than a week at once. My porridge has not leaked in my backpack yet, so I’d say they are leak-proof.” —Sharon N.
