1.A shoe stretcher to make your tight, uncomfortable shoes feel better by making them roomier and finally wearable.
It comes with extra removable parts for bunion stretching and the top of the shoe.
Promising review: “Okay, so I wear a size 12 in women and it’s always been painful to buy shoes. Anything in my size is either over $100. I don’t know why it took me decades to buy one of these but I’m SO glad I finally did! I’ve stretched out three pairs of heels I bought several years ago and was never able to wear, two pairs of sneakers, and one pair of booties. I’m so happy I bought this contraption, I’m going to actually have to buy a shoe rack now!” —Cece
Price: $15.99+ (available in women’s sizes 5.5–10 and men’s sizes 9–13)
2.A rain and stain repellant that’ll protect your leather belongings not only from water, but from wine, body oil, coffee, or grease.
Promising review: “I LOVE this stuff! I have several high-end purses and was struggling with dye transfer from my jeans. Now, each time I buy a purse I treat it with this first, and I have no more troubles with my purses turning blue!” — MTHealthyLiving
3.A Mario Badescu facial spray set with lavender, cucumber, and rose to cool, hydrate, and tone your skin with nutrient-rich botanicals to leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
Promising review: “I’ve been searching around for a great spray mist after I ran out of my previous one. It seems like everyone I came across was $20 itself, so I couldn’t believe that these were $21 for a three pack! They are great sized bottles, so the value is incredible for how much they cost a piece. The scents are not too strong at all, and they all have a unique smell. The directions mention you can use them before or after other products/makeup. I do feel like there is a bit of tackiness to my skin after I apply the spray, but that fades after about an hour or so. No added oiliness and always so refreshing!” —Meaghan C.
4.A twistable memory foam travel pillow that’ll adjust comfortably to any position, to no matter where you are.
Promising review: “Most travel neck pillows make me feel completely overwhelmed, and this is especially great for those with shorter necks. It gives you control and once you get the positioning that you prefer, it is really comfortable and provides the right support in the right places. Also (and this was a selling point in the beginning), having used this on several long-haul flights, I loved that after each trip I could easily unzip the cover and throw it in the wash.” —ltny
5.A pack of adjustable hem tape strips to easily change the length of your favorite skirt, jeans, or trousers without having to go to the tailor.
Promising review: “These tapes did the job for me. I took them on a cruise for two reasons. I didn’t have time to properly hem a pair of pants and when applied correctly, the hems stayed in place until removed. The second was for socks. The short socks always slide off of my heels. I applied the tape to the inside of the socks and no more problems. Love this item and will be purchasing again.” —Paule T.
Price: $5.63+ (also available in a six-pack)
6.A wallet-size multitool that’ll not only fit into your wallet’s credit card slot, but also works as a bottle opener, box cutter, a can opener, a screwdriver, and more.
Promising review: “I purchased this for the man who has everything he could ever want, my father. He is constantly breaking his glasses and can’t see to find the eyeglass screwdriver. This is perfect, he knows exactly where it is all the time. It fits perfectly in his wallet and the other 17 tools are just bonuses. The box opener and screwdriver were very helpful with other presents that were received and the Wallet Ninja became a big hit that all the guys had to pass around to check it out. I even used it for the bottle opener. It is surprisingly strong for how thin it is (it is just like a credit card). I highly recommend this item to everyone. It is so convenient and works great.” —Hannah
7.A roll of athletic kinesiology tape to help alleviate joint and muscle pain, reducing inflammation especially from sports or athletic injuries.
Promising review: “I have never used kinesiology tape before and I was a little skeptical, to be honest. I actually bought this to stabilize the bone in my foot but decided to try it on my knee pain. This stuff is amazing! My knee pain is gone! Not to mention that you can barely feel that’s its there. I literally put it on THREE days ago and it hasn’t even begun to come off! Not even with showers. I have not been easy on it either. I wear skinny jeans pretty much all the time and haven’t been careful about it. I can’t speak for anyone else who bought this but I followed the instructions exactly how it says and have no issues. It didn’t hurt when I took it off my foot either.” —deloris evelyn pierce
Price: $9.97 (available in 20 colors)
8.An adhesive remover with an amazing citrus scent that’ll lift and remove even the toughest of things like sticky labels, gum, tape, stickers, crayons, or glue — without ruining the surface.
Promising review: “My 9yr old daughter turned my house into a slime lab. No room was safe from her. I will not even try to explain what this small cute human did to her room. Months of tears, weeks of angry faces because the new furniture was ruined. But then I discovered GooGone and our life took a turn. I cleaned a dry glue stain (hot glue gun) from my beloved bench. It removed dry slime from carpets. I suggest you buy at least three bottles because when you start cleaning your house with it you won’t be able to stop until you removed all glue stains your kids have made the last 5 years.” —MasonK84
9.A touch-activated table lamp to illuminate and brighten any room with just the tap of your finger. It can turn on as a warm white light or bright neon colors — whatever you prefer!
Promising review: “It does what it needs to do and more! To turn it on you can tap anywhere on the base, and you don’t need to tap hard; it is quite sensitive. The lamp is simple and easy to operate: There are three brightness settings to the warm-looking light and the lamp really blends well with the rest of my college dorm room setup. This lamp has really impressed me of what it can do for me: soft back-lighting, study light, the certain color theme for my setup. For $26-ish dollars this has really impressed me.” —AJ Oquindo
10.A hypoallergenic mattress protector that’ll save your bed from dust, sweat, fluids, and allergens so you can sleep peacefully all night.
Promising review: “I just got a new puppy and my older cats and have been making their territory all over the house, which includes my bed. After the third time of cleaning it in one day I bought this protector and it’s amazing! They peed on it with in an hour of arrival and nothing got on my bed!!! It’s wonderful. I ordered a second one right away so I wouldn’t be with out one. I just throw them in the wash and I line dry mine. I don’t want any heat on plastic. So far been washed three times and still in wonderful condition. Highly recommend. Going to buy another for my daughter and the guest room.” —Julia D.
Price: $26.95 (available in sizes twin–California king)
11.A headphone cord spool with a magnetic center to keep your cords tangle-free and your headphones ready for use!
Promising review: “This is a fine product. It took some getting used to not wrapping the headphones up complete so I can attach the earpieces to the magnetic piece in the middle, but it is otherwise wonderful and does not unwind whenever it wants, but is easy to unwind yourself. Depending on the skinniness if your pants it can stick out a little, but generally it is pretty great and a huge time saver since the earbuds are tangled up and you don’t have to spend the entire day untangling them.” —Jack Kleiner
Price: $9.95 (available in three colors)
12.A pack of silicone earring backs so if you lose yours, no worries – you’ll have many backups. And they’re safe for sensitive skin.
Promising review: “These little silicone backs are small, but they tightly hold the earring in place really well. And with 200 pieces in the box, if you drop one (you will), it really doesn’t matter. Now I can safely wear the earrings in my jewelry box that are missing one or both backs. This was an excellent and an inexpensive purchase for me. Highly recommend!” —Carol R. Slicher
Price: $2.99+ (for a pack of 200; available in clear or mixed colors)
13.A pack of colorful gel pens to smoothly take notes with style and radiance.
Promising review: “Here’s the thing I hate gel pens and roller balls. But I was wrong about these. These pens write smoothly: no scratching, no skipping, and they dry quickly. Give them a try.” —Deal Maker
Price: $6.99+ (for a pack of 14)
14.A pack of Neutrogena makeup-removing wipes that’ll actually cleanse your skin and remove your mascara without leaving a greasy residue.
This is the only makeup remover I use and I always order from Amazon! I love it and it actually gets all of my makeup AND mascara off with one wipe. It doesn’t feel oily or greasy like other removers do.
Promising review: “I wear waterproof mascara so my makeup is always a little more difficult to remove. I’ve tried many removers, hands down this is one of the best. It doesn’t dry my face out as other brands have done either. I’m 100% satisfied! Thank you!” —Amazon Customer
Price: $8.52 (available in three different types)
15.A portable door lock to take with you on the road for additional security and safety.
It sticks in the door to keep it from opening if someone gets your room key. It comes with detailed installation instructions so you know how to properly use it, but it doesn’t require any extra tools.
Promising review: “I travel to many countries for work and have to stay in hotels. Many people I work with have reported waking up with someone standing in their room in the middle of the night or when they get out of the shower. I bought my Adalock almost a year ago and have been able to use it on every hotel door, except one. I always carry this and a wedge it for hotel door security. It has worked in four countries, including the US. As far as it being difficult to remove, you need to practice with it so that you feel confident that you could remove it in an emergency. I can remove it in the dark in less than two seconds.” —stormycj
16.A Physician’s Formula highlighter with a buttery cream feeling that’ll make your skin shine in the summer sun like no other.
Promising review: “This highlighter is everything I had ever hoped for. I HATE overpowering highlighter that makes you look greasy — Instagram looks don’t always work in the real world. This highlighter picks up right onto your finger and melts onto the skin, leaving a natural finish. I built it up quite a bit without any disruption. It really is a buttery cream, I dab a little on my fingers and mix with my foundation primer to make a luminous primer. This could easily sell for $30-40, but it’s SO affordable! I am very very happy, thank you Physician’s Formula!” —NOYB
Price: $5.86+ (available in five shades)
17.A dispenser to keep your wipes fresh and from drying out.
Promising review: “This product is durable, functional and just the right size to sit on top of your toilet. What I love most is there is nothing flimsy about it — It opens soooo smooth, I get such a kick out of how it opens — Not like a jack in the box…kinda like the lid yawns. Material is shiny, hard, thick plastic. All wipes stay secure and I can even get the larger wipes to fit. The weight works perfectly, never an issue pulling out wipes. Easy, breezy to clean exterior and interior. Somebody sure thought this through. I have one in powder room and bathroom. It passes the eye test, too. (It’s not stunning, but fine enough.) Two thumbs up!” — Autumn.
18.A critter catcher that’ll easily get and remove those creepy bugs without your having to use your hands and a napkin.
Promising review: “This thing is awesome! Initially, I was hesitant that it would squish the little guys or they would fall out in transport but it’s great! Highly recommend!” —Crystal R
Price: $19.99+ (available in five colors)
19.A pair of mesh socks to wear with sandals, flats, or loafers and add a little stylish edge to your outfit.
Promising review: “These are statement makers. They are classy and comfortable. When I wear them I want to point them out to everyone, but I don’t (lol). I just simply wear crop pants and flat mules. They came out fine in the washer and dryer. Didn’t read the instructions to see if they were to be air dried or hand washed. Wish they came in multi colors. I’m big on feet support and these hug my feet really well. Love the fit.” —cy
Price: $10.99 (available in 16 colors)
20.A plastic water bottle holder that’ll hold, organize, and store your beverages and make them easier to grab and go.
Promising review: “I went on an organizing spree throughout my house after the new year and this was perfect for in my cabinet. Water bottles no longer roll and fall out every time I open the door!” —Kendra M
Price: $22.99+ (available in three pack sizes)
21.A password log book to keep track of all your usernames, addresses, and passwords in one place.
Promising review: “I purchased this for my mother who uses a different password for everything and she’s one of those people that if she gets logged out of something or the password doesn’t save on her computer that she can’t get back in. She currently had a notebook where she scribbled login info but it would take her forever to find what she needed. This was perfect for her! She can put in all her login information alphabetically and then when she needs it, it’s super easy to find! Highly recommend.” —Jasmine Norris-Dixson
22.A dog selfie aid with a ball that’ll help keep your dog’s attention for that perfect photo.
Promising review: “I absolutely love this product! After I opened the package, I immediately put it on my cellphone and before I could even call my dogs they were sitting next to me looking up at it as if they were dying to know what the new toy was! They sat patiently waiting while I snapped a few pics. Then when I was done, I removed the ball from the device and played with them for awhile. Later, I put the ball back in the device, reattached it to my cellphone and snapped a few more pics. This works great! Nothing like a ball to get a dog’s attention!” —Kelly
23.A pair of earbud hooks to comfortably keep your AirPods or wireless headphones in your ears and in place so they’ll never fall out.
Promising review: “I have to admit initially I was skeptical. I had owned the AirPods for one day and was about to return them as they would pop out of my ears with the slightest tilt. I saw reviews for these on Amazon and was so hoping they would work I paid for overnight shipping. Well needless to say… THEY WORK! I can move all day no matter what I do and they barely budge. They are comfortable, fit very well and you barely know they are even there. I now use my AirPods happily all day.” —Adam13
Price: $11.95 (available in four colors)
24.A set of door bumpers that’ll help reduce noise when closing doors, cabinets, or even drawers.
Promising review: “Funny enough, but this is one of my favorite low-cost upgrades to the house. Our previous dampers were a cloth that came with the cabinets and were getting a bit thin. Thought I would try and upgrade to save on the stress of the hickory doors. Wow was I surprised of the difference of a good bumper. These stick on very strong but don’t ruin the wood if removed. They have a beautiful but solid thud that is not loud but also don’t bounce the door or drawer back at you which others might do. There are also so many in the pack that I replaced every bumper in the house, good or bad, and still, haven’t gone through half the bag. They’ll be passed down through the generations!” —Andy Levesque
Price: $4.99 (comes with 1/2 diameter sheet of 100 bumpers)
25.A set of clear drawer organizers to keep everything arranged and in order so you won’t have worry about where something is.
Promising review: “I love these stacking storage organizers. They fit perfectly in the bathroom drawers, even if you stack them. I use the smaller ones for holding cotton makeup pads and other smaller cosmetic items. I store fingernail polish and items I don’t use every day in the larger square containers that fit on the bottom. The long ones are used in the top drawer for toothpaste, hairbrushes, tubes of smaller first aid items, moisture eye drops, etc. I liked them so well, I ordered a second set and threw away the thin, funky plastic organizers I had used for years. These are much classier.” —JW
Price: $14.99 (available in a six-piece set)
26.A cooling mattress pad topper that’ll help you sleep comfortably, because it’s filled with alternative down fill and it has cooling technology to stop sweat from leaking through to your mattress.
Promising review: “Purchased this to go on top of my foam mattress. Although I love the comfort of a foam mattress, I am of the age where I sleep hot. I was losing precious sleep due to night sweats. I had tried several other toppers with the hope that it would provide some cooling relief. THIS topper did the trick. Not only did it make my mattress even cozier, but it is also considerably cooler to sleep on. I would highly recommend this product.” —Stacie Vigiard
Price: $49.90 (available in eight sizes)
27.A magnetic clasp converter to help you put your necklaces on if you struggle with opening the tiny clasps.
Promising review: “As I’ve gotten older, it has become more difficult to repeatedly open and close clasps so I convert my bracelets and necklaces to magnetic clasps. I have tried several different brands and sizes and these clasps are my favorite. Some clasps are too small and don’t fit with traditional bracelets and necklaces. Much to my dismay, some clasps that are advertised as strong, were not strong and I’ve lost some necklaces. These clasps are strong and the quality is consistent. I no longer lose jewelry from unreliable clasps. Great product. I have several and will purchase more as needed in the future.” —dorothy
Price: $16.52 (also available in a three-pack)
28.A can rack organizer to keep all your tins of food in order and in place.
Promising review: “We just moved into an apartment that has no pantry and limited cabinet space. I assembled this in two minutes, no tools required! I use it for my ziplock bags/foil/crock pot liners as well! It works great as a multi shelving unit. Two of my friends have seen this and have already bought one. Every house needs one of these!” —Annie
Price: $19.87+ (available in three colors)
29.A pair of prism glasses that’ll allow you to read and watch TV laying down, without straining your eyes or being in an uncomfortable position.
Promising review: “Great bed glasses! I do boring exercises that require lying flat on my back. When my back hurts, it works to lie flat on my back in bed also boring. Thanks to these glasses, I can lie flat and still be entertained. Ta-da! I wear glasses and these fit over my glasses so not only can I see the screen but I can actually see what’s on it.” —Robyn Jamison
Price: $13.95 (available in two colors)
30.A nail strengthener to prevent splits, chips, and tears of your nails while making fragile nails harder. And it has an amazing coconut scent.

Promising review: “So my grandmother told me about this product when I was young, about 20 years ago or so. I use it all the time! THIS STUFF WORKS! It works really well too. My nails grow really long in a few weeks and I get to decide when to cut them off. Women ask me about them all the time, ‘How do you get such white nail tips?’ Well, it’s because of this.” —Halie Brake
Price: $7.94 (available in a two-pack)
31.And an oxygen stain remover that’ll remove even the toughest of stains from carpet, upholstery, laundry, and all water-safe surfaces.
Promising review: “I had tried cleaning this pet stain using my normal household products with no luck. I ordered this product and used it on the stain three days after it was made. I would definitely recommend this product.” —Ottinger
