A doggie doorbell that’ll take your interspecies communication to a whole new level. Most puppers figure out quick that a nose-boop to the button says “please let me out,” which is really helpful for mutts who have a hard time communicating this through barking or scratching.

A dog uses the doorbell


Amazon

I’m a sucker for anything that makes the world a little more accommodating for our furry friends.

Promising review: “Love it. I have a dog who doesn’t bark. He just sat at the door and waited, so I was constantly running to the back of the house to look out the window to see if he was there. It took less then three weeks for him to learn to use this and now he just rings the doorbell when he is ready to come in. It has saved me a lot of time running back and forth. I have had it for a year and have had no problems even in negative temps with lots of snow.” —Michele

Price: $30

A makeup organizer with room for everything that rotates so it’s easy to find what you need.


amazon.com

The reviewer images above show how much space this helped one person save!

Promising review: “I did a lot of research on different makeup organizers because I wanted to choose the right one the first time. I am so happy I went with this organizer because it is perfect! Very easy to assemble and it holds so much product! Before I had all of my makeup thrown into one container and now it’s nicely organized and easy to grab when I need. The 360-degree rotation makes it so convenient. You won’t regret this purchase!” —Shamzz

Price: $26.88

A pair of drawstring terry shorts for lounging around in or wearing to a Zoom meeting, because business wear is from the waist up now. Reviewers like that the waist is adjustable, so they’re good for everybody and every body.

amazon.com

Promising review: “I have trouble finding shorts that fit because I have a small waist but curvy hips. They either gap at the waist or are too tight across the rear. But these! These are perfect! The drawstring on the waist allows me to fit it where I’m smaller, and the generous seat means my butt isn’t trying to eat the material constantly. Plus the fabric is really soft, like your favorite pair of sweatpants. The length is a little longer than what you find in shorts these days, but that’s also a plus for me. They hit me just above mid-thigh, so not Daisy Dukes, but not grandma shorts either. If you’re curvy, these are the shorts for you.” —Kindle Customer

Price: $15.70 (available in women’s sizes XS-XXL and in six colors and prints)

A tailgating chair with back ventilation, a carrying case and two cupholders (including one that’s extra large — nice!). It features your favorite team logo, so nobody gets confused about whose side you’re on. Many reviewers say they like this one because it’s comfy for them, where other chairs can be flimsy or just too darn small.

amazon.com

Without the proper gear, you’re just drinking in a parking lot. Do it right, friend.

Promising review: “If you are 5’10” and over, this is the lawn chair for you. We have multiple chairs for tailgating at games, and these comfortable chairs are perfect for our guests who are tall. The chair itself has two cup holders as well as a clip on the backrest to keep it closed when inserting in the cover. The back legs are slightly curved, which makes you feel as though you are at a slight recline. Your legs and knees are level when sitting which is awesome for the back. It is refreshing to feel as though we are not sitting on the floor while hunched over for extended periods of time when we’re out for a little rest and relaxation. Planning on purchasing a few more to replace the entire set.” —Heather Carpenter

Price: $24.99+ (available in 19 teams)

5.

A bucket tool organizer to turn any ol’ five-gallon into an instant toolbox. Reviewers are all grateful to have found this wonder, and it’s one of those things that once you have one, you immediately want more.

The bucket loaded with tools in the many pockets


amazon.com

And when they say this thing has a lot of pockets, hoo-boy were they not kidding! I counted 23.

Promising review: “Very happy with this. Just what I needed to tame the pile in my camper tool bucket. Plenty of pockets, large and small sizes on the outside and larger on the inside. Well thought-out spaces for hammers, and the bucket handle can be used up or down. It has a lidded pocket for smaller items, and I love the hooked strap for holding a roll of tape. Canvas is heavy enough that it feels like it will last for many years, but pliable enough that it’s easy to get your tools in and out. I might buy another one to keep around the house. I can see all types of uses for this item. Keeper!” —Fair Comprehensive Reviews

Price:  $16.33

A hard-topped silicone ice pop mold that comes with accessories like sticks, bags, and a recipe book. It’s really easy to get your frozen treats out of, for frustration-free homemade treat for you or your pets this summer.

A reviewer making dog treats in the mold


amazon.com

Promising review: “Best purchase. Its silicone is perfect for wiggling out your frozen treats once you run hot water on it. So easy! And the top where the base of the ice pop is, is solid plastic so it’s not flimsy. You could definitely carry this around by the base and it would not fold over. It’s the perfect kit. Comes with collapsible funnel for easy pouring, cleaning brush to get into the tight molds, wooden sticks, and sealable plastic baggies for storing. Truly the perfect set to get you started. Also includes a little recipe booklet to get you inspired.” —Perla Arellano

Price: $21.99

7.

A wingback upholstered dining chair, counter-height stool, or barstool for a fun pop of color. The style is oh-so in right now and these are actually ~great quality~ furniture.

The chair in yellow


amazon.com

Pomising review: “Bought four of these chairs for my new home. They are exactly what I was looking for. The gold is just the pop of color my kitchen needed. My island in the kitchen is eight feet long and the four fit perfectly. I did get a spot of red food on one of them the other day and it wiped off pretty easily. My partner and dog both agree with me that they’re comfortable.” —G. York

Price: $204+ (available in three heights and seven colors)

8.

A pair of fun sandals designed by Katy Perry that have fruit or flowers or other delightfully quirky things at the big toe, and that everyone says win them a ton of compliments.

Promising review: “So worth the money. I can’t stop getting compliments on these sandals.” —YEN

Price: $16.81+ (available in women’s sizes 5-11 and 25 styles)

9.

A lightweight set of two hanging plant pots with drainage (don’t worry, it comes with plugs for indoor use if you need them). Reviewers compliment it for looking great and being easy to handle.

The half sphere planter installed from a ceiling


amazon.com

It does not come with hooks.

Promising review: “Great value for the product. Went to a local nursery to compare and prices were too high for heavier pots with no drainage holes (and less aesthetically pleasing). Very lightweight and functional. As another reviewer on here suggested, just get it.” —Amazon Customer

Price: $29.99+ (available in three colors)

10.

A ceiling fan that looks like an airplane propeller (adorable!) and also moves air like nobody’s business. Cute and functional? Be still my butch heart!

The dark brown fan installed


amazon.com

Promising review: “The fans in the house when we bought it were big with lots of lights and one even had Antlers on it. These are so clean looking and they move some serious air. One is on a six foot down rod and the other on a three foot. A little trial and error with the the balance weights, and they run like a top.” —MeagerHair

Price: $690+ (available in five sizes and eight colors)

11.

A power strip tower with nine regular outlets and four highspeed USB charging ports that does all the regular power strip stuff like surge protection and overload warnings, in a neat design that actually stays put and can live on top of your table.

The tower of power (see what I did there)


amazon.com

Aren’t you tired of charging your phone on the floor or having to crawl under your desk to plug in your laptop? I thought so.

Promising review: “Nice long cord. Plenty of plugs/ports. Nice color. Doesn’t take up much space. Would get some for family next Christmas. Even the box it came in was nice!” —MamaM

Price: $29.99+ (available in five colors)

12.

A xylophone specially designed for those infamously musical fowl: chickens! They peck at it instead of each other and the hundreds of positive reviewers are as entertained as they are relieved.

It also works for other birds, according to reviewers.

Promising review: “I have a very aggressive rooster. It’s a hoot to watch him ruffle his feathers in preparation to attack, then abruptly change directions, and stop to play this toy. He loves making musical sounds.” —Amazon customer

Price: $8.99

A classic Rawlings baseball glove reviewers swear is made to last a lifetime. These are for slow-pitch recreational games and sized for adults.

The glove


amazon.com

Promising review: “I purchased this glove for my kid. We scrutinized dozens of gloves before settling on this Rawlings. I’ve had my Rawlings for over 30 years, and this glove meets the same quality and fit as my old one. I hope my kid has as many fond memories as I do using this glove. I would say regardless of the money this is one of the finest gloves for any age!” —CPG157

Price: $51.96+ (available in left- or right-hand orientation, four types, and five sizes)

14.

A chunky watch folks like to wear to work or anytime. It tells the time and looks good on your wrist, which is all anyone ever asked of it.

A reviewer wears the watch


amazon.com

It’s water-resistant and comes with a silicone strap.

Promising review: “I work with a blue uniform and boy did everyone at work love it. It is a men’s watch which made all the guys love it, but gendering clothes is unnecessary and women can wear it too…it has become my favorite watch. Very well-made and great quality!” —Christina Somerset

Price: $84.70+ (available in two colors)

15.

A set of four cutting boards and a stand that are nice and thick, don’t take up much space, have handles, and are color-coded to prevent cross-contamination.

The set


amazon.com

Pomising review: “These are great! They are thick and sturdy and make cooking easy when you need to cut veggies and dump them in a pot. No more struggling with a huge bendy cutting board. I love how the handles make it easier to carry them from counter to stove. They are each individually labeled on the handles for what you can use them for, which I like because I like to have a separate cutting board for veggies and meat, and it helps when I have people over and they want to help in the kitchen they can see which one is for what without mixing them. The colors are very nice and match my kitchen. I also like how they come with their own stand so you can wash them and put them back in their spot. I would definitely recommend this product if you’re looking for new cutting boards!” —Dilybop

Price: $24.96

An air compressor to fill balls and tires and run air-based power-tools. This one is good to go in just a few minutes, saving you time and frustration. It’s also lightweight, so you can tote it with you to air up your tires for after beach driving or to improve your gas mileage.

The compressor next to an RV tire


amazon.com

Fun fact: folks in the Amish community rely on compressed air-powered tools to avoid using electricity.

Promising review: “This pump was set up and running in under five minutes. It comes with the air release valve on the bottom side of the tank in the open position so close it before starting for the first time. Once I had the air release valve closed it was up to pressure for use in three to five minutes. I live in a four season climate and airing up or down the tires is nonstop. This will make my life much easier.” —R White

Price: $129

17.

A pair of Adidas Adilette sandals with straps so you can sport this easy-on footwear with more traction.

amazon.com

These are just like your fave slides but with more stability. My partner has these and loves them. I do too, but plead the fifth as to how often I, um…”borrow” them. 

They run a tad big. Order down if between sizes.

Promising review: “I’ve been wearing them for about a week, and I love them! Super comfortable. I wasn’t sure if I would be in love with the style and look of them, but I was pleasantly surprised.” —Arabella

Price: $29.98+ (available in women’s sizes 4-13 and 11 colors)

A gallon of Kilz high-adhesion primer, because I know paint and this is the good stuff. It goes on easy, dries fast, sticks to anything, and hides everything. And it passes the fingernail test every time! Nothing else compares, and the 1,000+ 5-star ratings reflect that.


amazon.com

The only sanding you’ll be complaining about this summer is what the beach got stuck in your swimsuit.

Promising review: “One word, MARLITE. Yep, this actually adhered to my 1950s Marlite paneling in my bathroom — WITHOUT having to sand it. For those of you who don’t know what Marlite is, it’s a fiberglass plastic wall panel that the installers would adhere directly to the drywall in older homes. I originally painted it with two coats of primer and paint all-in-one, and it scraped off with a fingernail, even after curing for a few weeks. Taking it off was a breeze as well (SMH). Soap and water applied with a sponge and it peeled off like a bad sunburn. But THIS primer went on and after just an hour, I couldn’t even scrape it off with a metal scraper! Magic has happened and I’m so glad I don’t have to rip apart my walls to remove the Marlite! Thank you Kilz!” —Sno4rent

Price: $31.14+ (available in two sizes)

A cardboard cat scratcher from those pet geniuses at FurHaven, with models ranging from basic rectangles to puzzles and multi-story manses. Reviewers praise their sturdiness, how easy they are to put together, and the superb distraction they pose towards otherwise destroying their furniture.

amazon.com

Promising review: “It’s just compressed cardboard but my cats LOVE to scratch on this stuff. The toy balls and track around it are perfect to keep my kittens entertained. I choose this one for the smooth outer top. It seems to deter them from chewing on it to try and get the balls loose. To me this one looks solid, and so far seems to be holding up, even against our rough and tumble adult cats. I’m very pleased with this purchase and so are my for babies, would definitely recommend.” —Lisa

A balance board with a ton of positive reviews that people say is a solid choice for balance training, stabilization exercises, PT, or as an alternative to a desk chair.

The product in blue


amazon.com

I was so convinced by the reviews just now that I bought one!

Promising review: “My abs, my glutes, my calves, everything has strengthened as a result of just standing on this balancing board. I could not be any more pleased with this product; it seems to be what I have needed all along. From the little I know, it seems to work on proprioception, or the feedback loop between your brain and muscles. My brain had gotten used to activating certain muscles and not others, messing up my posture as a result. Balancing on this board targets the muscles that are not typically activated, which need to be.” —Hugo Marquez

Price: $20.39+ (available in two styles and 11 colors)

21.

A set of dishwasher-safe, porcelain, gold-rimmed teacups and saucers to glam up your daily coffee, tea, or espresso ritual. Reviewers are really impressed by the quality, and of course the general air of classiness.

amazon.com

Hanger not included.

Promising review: “This product is really great so far! I have a mini espresso machine and there’s a small pour and large and had trouble finding the right size cup for the large pour, but this is perfect! It leaves a little room for cream. They’re pretty and function great. So I would definitely buy from them again!” —Amazon Customer

Price: $29.95 for service for six

A floor and reading lamp that 200+ reviewers have called “perfect.” It has multiple light modes and is remote-controlled so you can set just the right vibe, even from across the room. The top is meant to cast a warm glow upwards, to deliver the same illumination with a softer reflected cast.

The lamp, on


amazon.com

Includes a bulb and shade.

Promising review: “I live in a loft, and can never get enough light. I purchased this for my bedroom and I could not be happier. First of all, I love that it has a very small footprint on the floor (my space is small), but it is still tall and bright. Having three choices of color (sunlight, natural, and white) is really nice and each one creates a different mood. The extra side light will be wonderful for reading. Also, the various settings of brightness are great. Oh, and the remote control has a magnet, which is perfect for me! I am ordering another one tomorrow.”—WindyCityKitty

Price: $59.99

A pair of tinted Speedo googles for kids ages 6 to 14, to keep their darling eyes safe from chlorine *and* the sun *and* other irritants this summer. People think these really are the best on the market, and after comparison-shopping myself, I agree.

A reviewer demonstrates the tint on the pink goggles


amazon.com

Promising review:I am a former swim teacher and always recommend Speedo or TYR goggles for kids learning to swim, but these will be my new number one recommendation. I purchased a different pair of goggles on Amazon for my kids, but they didn’t fit their faces well and we had a ton of problems with suction. Well I found these, and we are in love. So easy to size these goggles, and suction was great! I highly recommend. And my kids love the look!” —Bo Hines

Price: $14.61+ (available in eight colors)

A fleece blanket that glows in the dark and is such a bright idea for the kids in your life or kids at heart. Reviewers rave it holds up in the wash, recharges quickly, and glows a long time.


amazon.com

Promising review: “I am beyond impressed with this blanket. It stayed glowing throughout the night! Now, granted I did leave it under the lights, but I also used the flashlight on my iPhone to really make them glow and it’s still glowing after multiple washes. It is lightweight, but perfect to put on top of your main blanket and super soft. My kid absolutely loves it!” —Amazon Customer

Price: $29.99 (available in four colors)

An easy-open dog poo bag folks go gaga for because it’s extra large, mega strong, and 100% guaranteed not to leak. They’re also made with recycled packaging and available scent-free for all y’all with fragrance sensitivities like I’ve got.

A reviewer holds a cardboard box of rolls of the green bags


amazon.com

Poop bags, ba-ah-ahgs / Poop bags, for your ha-ands / Poop bags, ba-ah-ahgs! / I wanna clean yard…

Pop nostalgia aside, based on the reviews, these bags are almost cartoonishly perfect.

Oh and for those of you with MCS, take heart: there’s no upcharge on the unscented version (for once!).

Promising review: “QUALITY doggie bags make such a HUGE difference! I’ve tried so many different types of bags from dog-walking clients and these ones by far are my favorite in the world! Not to mention they smell great and they don’t have that plastic feel that other doggie bags have. When your doggo is barking their head off at another dog while you’re fidgeting to open a bag to pick up their poo — well no problem here! They’re super easy to open! I rave about these to my partner every time we’re on walks with my dog. Would definitely buy again as long as my dog poops.” —Ashley L.

A soft lunchbox to tote treats to picnics or work that reviewers say holds more than they expected and keeps everything nice and cold.


amazon.com

Promising review: “Pleasantly surprised at how big this lunchbox was when it arrived. It holds a lot, and would definitely not be for someone just packing a sandwich. I have two of the Rubbermaid square ice packs, a Fresca, a one-cup container, a large zip bag, and two large five-cup containers…all fit easily and snugly in the main pouch, and there’s still plenty of room in the front pouch and cup holders. It’s really the perfect size if you have to take in a few meals to work every day, without having to play Tetris to make it all fit.” —Kierce

Price: $19.99+ (available in two sizes and two colors)

A slim-fit printed poplin short sleeve button-down shirt that wins high praise for rad patterns and holding up perfectly in the wash.

A reviewer wears the shirt with a wave pattern on it


amazon.com

Promising review: “These shirts are great for the price, and a nice change of pace compared to the blousey kind of woven shirts you usually find. The slim fit is DEFINITELY slim, so depending on where you shop you probably want to order a size larger than what you normally would. I wear an XS from the Gap and American Eagle, and a size S from this brand fits me the same: snug in the chest and cut close down through to the waist.” —J. Nelson

Price: $25+ (available in men’s sizes XS–XXL and 28 colors)

A puzzle for dogs you hide treats in to keep your food-motivated canine friend entertained by frustrating them with hard-to-liberate snacks.

A dog celebrates solving the puzzle


amazon.com

Promising review: “At 14 years old, the VIP (very important Papillon) is still as inquisitive as ever. I was hesitant in getting him a puzzle thinking he wouldn’t be interested, but it ended up being one of the best treats I could get him. This is a well-made and fascinating toy for my dog to play with. The pieces are light enough for small dogs to maneuver however, and everything can be easily washed if you put wet or oily treats inside. Overall, if you’re looking to keep your dog engaged and want to give him a little challenge when getting his meals, this is a great toy to consider.” —K. Chan

Price: $11.43+ (available in four difficulty levels)

A 32-ounce water bottle emblazoned with your favorite NFL team logo to help keep you hydrated this summer. It’s not just a branded gimmick: reviewers rave it’s also a pretty good water bottle!

The bottle with a jaguar on it


amazon.com

Promising review: “My partner needed a decent sized, sturdy water bottle to keep drinks cold. Being able to sport their favorite NFL team on the bottle is an added bonus, because it helps keep them motivated to drink water. So far, so good. We haven’t had any leaks, they like the handle on the lid and the flip top with built-in straw. They’ve even dropped it a handful of times, and it’s held up. In fact, they claim to like this bottle better than a Hydroflask.” —PandorazRox

Price: $23.99+ (available with 31 team logos, in up to three variations for each)

That’s it for this week! Thank goodness there are so many opinionated strangers on the internet to call out these awesome products. How would we ever get by without them?
