Promising reviews: "The best blanket. Amazingly soft, and super stretchy! This blanket is big, my partner and I can share it on opposite sides of our couch." —htxcatxdad

"This blanket feels like butter, it’s extremely soft. It’s surprisingly long and will cover a queen bed. I was on the fence because of the price but it definitely lived up to it’s hype." KarenAmor

Get it from Nordstrom for $147 (available in five solid colors and multiple leopard print options).

Reviews agree the OG Barefoot Dreams throw is *amazing* and well worth the price, but if the total is too hefty for ya, Amazon has a great cheaper-yet-similar option for under $50!

I've had the green Always Pan for a while now (that's mine above on the left!), and it's still one of my favorite things in my kitchen. I'm no chef by any means, but I can't help but be way more motivated with this cutie on my stove. It's got pour spouts, a built-in spoon rest, and a super-convenient non-stick (and non-toxic) coating! You can steam, strain, sauté, fry — the list goes on.

Promising review: "I purchased an Always Pan in 2020 and have since purchased two more as gifts, and two of the Perfect Pots. I love knowing that I am not cooking chemicals into my food while using these. They are super easy to clean, and I was really surprised that the exterior color does not get stained by food. It is definitely important to use only a super-soft sponge on the pan interior. Admittedly, I was skeptical at first given the price of the pan, but you can honestly tell that there is a high level of quality! Very happy with this purchase!" —Angelique O.

Get it from Our Place for $112 (originally $150; available in three sizes and 10 colors).

Includes a remote that can adjust the brightness.

Promising review "This is a wonderful product; just what I wanted. Super easy to install, and I love that it breaks off into sections, so you don’t have any hanging over to hide. The remote is awesome, and there are lots of brightness settings. I’m going to use these everywhere!" —Queen Halloween

Get the six-piece kit from Amazon for $16.79 (available in three colors).

Promising review: "This is a beautiful shower head, very thin, but feels quite sturdy and heavy. Installation took no more than five minutes. The shower head has a very smooth, highly polished, mirror-like chrome finish. It gives a satisfying showering experience without wasting too much water. Absolutely no leaks whatsoever. Everybody in our family said they liked it. What else is there to say about a shower head?" —Sadda Reddy

Get it from Amazon for $21.49+ (available in five sizes and four finishes).

Promising review: "I am very pleased with these hangers! I first bought one to try it with my boyfriend’s pants, and I loved them so I had to buy another one. The material of the part where you place the pants prevents any type of clothing from sliding off. Saves a lot of space on my closet and was easy to install, took me less than two minutes. The hangers come with the tool necessary and an extra piece that holds the rods in case you lose one. Overall very happy with the results, will buy again if I need more!" —Lizette Lopez

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

Promising review: "I’m obsessed with these tables! The tall one comes high enough to enjoy coffee or to eat at. My favorite part about these tables are the storage! I love them because they don’t take up a ton of room and are easy to move around! Super happy with these!" —Andrew Vinh Tran

Get it from Amazon for $94+ (available in three finishes).

Promising review: "My kitchen window is on the sidewalk near the community mailboxes. Lots of people walking by. I loathe mini blinds, which collect dust and grease. Especially since the stove is next to the window. Curtains are better, but still collect cooking smells and grease particles. I installed this in about 10 minutes. It lets in light, but hides me from nosy people." —Gayle Smith

Get it from Amazon for $8.99+ (11 roll sizes available).

Promising review: "OK guys. Here’s the deal. This is gonna be a long review but TL;DR: This is an amazing little product, and I highly recommend it. I suffer from mild insomnia and generally have to use sleep aids, which is fine but not ideal for every night. I also moved from SoCal to Washington state a year ago, and I have NEVER been exposed to so little sunlight in my life! Living in the dark winters here is difficult for me. This👏🏼Little👏🏼Alarm👏🏼Clock👏🏼 Has changed my life and I’ve only had it for like three weeks. The sleepy time setting has the ability to KNOCK me out without the use of sleep aids! What?! My brain totally responds to the way the light functions. The morning alarm is so gentle and peaceful (you can completely control the noise and brightness settings). I wake up much more naturally rather than to the blaring honk or passive-aggressive chiming of a traditional alarm (looking at you, Apple). The light settings are so fun as well! I love having it on a low setting while I’m journaling, reading, watching TV, anything really! I would pay two or three times the price for this thing. It’s 100% worth it." —KatieM

Get it from Amazon for $31.89+ (available in three colors).

Promising review: "I had tried everything to get the hardware stains off my shower. CLR, metal scrubbing pads, vinegar, and many other things. I thought I'd end up having to replace all the faucets, knows, etc. I saw this in a BuzzFeed article and thought, no way it's THAT good... It's that good. It's better than good. It's wild how good it is. My shower looks better than new. It took rust stains off tile. It took years of hard-water scale buildup off in seconds. It is literally a miracle product." —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $5.97.

PS. it's soundproof too!

Promising review: "So easy to set up! All you do is peel tape and adhere to a CLEAN and DRY door. Also looks great, I don't even notice it. I had a huge gap under my door. I could smell and hear everything from the hallway. Smells, drafts, and sound all are less of an issue now." —Brit B.

Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in four colors).

Promising review: "Bought these because my old coasters left puddles of water from the condensation on drinks. These really work and absorb everything! Very pleased. And they are so cute and look good on both wood and white marble countertops! Love that there are two slightly different designs in a pack." —Liza P

Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in 14 more designs/styles).

Promising review: "So easy to put together, I could put it together with my eyes closed. It fit amazingly perfectly between the tub and the toilet, and it has created so much more space, and my bathroom is no longer cluttered because of this product." —COS45B

Get it from Amazon for $36.98+ (available in five colors and four sizes).

Promising reviews: "Way better than I expected! I was super skeptical that this would help. I only wash my hair twice a week and typically have to straighten or curl it every week. This helped a ton! I don't have to curl or straighten it nearly as much. It's helped with frizz too. I've washed them several times and they feel durable." —Molly G.

"I love my pillow case!...It's super soft and leaves your hair feeling silky when you wake up. It is durable and lasts through the washing machine (and dryer, I know). I will definitely be using these as gifts for friends and family." —Kimmie

Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in four sizes and 13 colors/patterns).

Don't forget your essential oils! Here's a top-rated pack of six for only $11.99.

Promising reviews: "This diffuser is so pretty, and I just love the dim light around the diffuser. I felt it was a little pricey, but it’s made from ceramic and not plastic so well worth it." —Kathy B.

"Best purchase, zero regrets! Love this thing! I purchased the blush diffuser and the Refresh kit. All of the scents were outstanding, and the diffuser itself emits a great stream of vapor and quickly fills my room. ... I want one in every color now lol. It fits any style/home decor. Treat yourself! You won’t regret it!" —Danielle W.

Get it straight from Vitruvi for $98.40+ (originally $123; available in 10 colors) or from Amazon for $98.40+ (available in seven colors).

PS: If you're looking for a more budget-friendly option, ViviTest has a similar diffuser for $38.99.

Promising review: "I'm obsessed with it. This Cosori airfryer is incredibly easy to operate and clean. The design is sleek and appealing (I leave it out on my counter). And the results have greatly exceeded my expectations. I'm hooked and I think for the foreseeable future I will be using this almost every day. Here's just a few examples of what I've made so far:- Brussels sprouts: the results of cooking these at home in a normal gas oven have always sucked. While not quite restaurant quality (restaurants use oil fryers) the Cosori comes incredibly close and shaves about 10 min of cooking time.- Reheating french fries: This alone was worth the purchase. They were crispy and just as delicious from the night before.- Reheating steak that I cooked to a rare temp the night before on the pan: no complaints and super easy to clean afterwards.- Bacon: Way faster, way cleaner (and can easily save the bacon fat) and turned out perfect.I'm so excited to experiment more with this awesome machine. 5/5" —Nolan S.

Get it from Amazon for $89.99+ (available in five sizes and three colors).

Promising review: "I was pleasantly surprised at how much easier clean up is with these silicone mats. I’ve used them several times in my air fryer and they solved the problem of food sticking and made clean up afterwards a breeze. I still spray them with olive oil with whatever food I’m cooking and wash with soapy water when done. I liked them better than the aluminum foil I was using due to holes in them that allow air to circulate and to non stick. The silicone has no odor that I could detect. Quality material. Food gets browned and crispy. They fit perfectly in my Cosori air fryer." —Diane Lareau

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $10.47+ (available in five sizes, including two round options).

Set includes 15 containers and lids, plus 24 labels.

Promising review: "I ordered a few different sets from this company, and all seem really airtight so far. I like how they stack and I am loving the label options. My pantry is looking really organized. Yay!" —Jackie

Get them from Amazon for $27.99 (available in three colors).

Promising review: "Love the quality. It is actually better than expected. I have marble bedside tables and it blends beautifully." —Joyce2022

Get it from Target for $69.99 (available in three colors).

Promising review: "I rarely write reviews, but I am so enamored with this TV, I had to... This TV checks all the boxes. Beautiful picture when viewing TV, but disguised so ingeniously, when not. A large selection of artwork is available to fit any decor. It’s just incredible!" —FLgirl

Get it from Amazon for $557.99+ (available in seven sizes, four styles, and with or without expert installation).

Promising reviews: "This has saved me so many times. I use it mostly for my carpet and the couch. With having a cat and dog with an almost white couch, this has been SUPER helpful. It has yet to fail me." —Amazon Customer

"This little guy has been working pretty well for me so far. Raising my puppy from eight weeks, I've had my share of things to try and get out of the carpet, from pee stains to puke to things he would knock over, to the mud he would track in. This would get most of it out if I used it right away. ... That being said, I am happy with the way it takes out most stains and has not failed me yet." —Cece

Get it from Amazon for $123.59.

BTW, this tool comes with small bottles of ready-to-use cleaning formula, but if you need more, grab a bigger bottle for $11.99+ (available in two sizes)!

Promising review: "This is great! Fits vertically in my small entryway, just what I was looking for. If you want a modern stylish clean-looking shoe rack with a small footprint, this is the perfect selection! It’s lightweight, so of course it’s not the sturdiest piece of furniture, but for storing five pairs of shoes, it’s great! It fits men's size 10 shoes perfectly." —Aaron Staley

Get it from Amazon for $63 (available in two colors and widths).

Promising review: "If you need to Marie Kondo your closet, this is really useful, and it looks really nice. I got the gray ones. Bought two to see how they were. Perfect. Bought six more. Loving it!!! Really recommended this product, ready to install and very sturdy." —Nicolò R.

Get a two-pack from Amazon for $17.99.

Promising review: "I have a tiny kitchen with only three drawers, so space is at a premium. My silverware organizer took up almost all of one drawer, so this organizer is a godsend. You can fit quite a few spoons, etc. in each slot. My beater attachments fit perfectly into the top two hollows. I will say I have to flip my forks over face down in order to be able to shut and open my drawer, but then the drawer itself is kind of shallow. You NEED this if you have a small kitchen with few drawers!" —mialro

Get it on Amazon for $11.99.

PS: You can get the knife organizer (also pictured above) for $11.99 too.

Promising review: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! I almost did not purchase them due to the reviews saying that larger than a C cup would not fit into the bra organizer. At just $15 for four organizers, I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I figured, worst-case scenario I would have to cut the dividers out of the bra organizers. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I am so glad I took the chance and did not listen to the reviews. I would have missed out on the best cheapest organizers I have ever found. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. I will also order my boyfriend the brown ones for his drawers. Great product for a great price!" —Elizabeth L. Blackwell

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $12.87 (available in seven colors).

Wad-Free is a small biz that was launched during the pandemic. Cyndi, the founder, learned CAD (computer-aided design) to create the pads.

Promising review: "Honestly, I had my doubts! But BuzzFeed kept showing me this product. And washing and drying sheets was an annoyance: The sheets would take over the washing machine and get tangled in the dryer, causing EVERYTHING in that load to take forever to dry. No longer. I used these for the first time yesterday and ZERO tangles. The load dried in normal time. AND I get to support a woman-owned business?!?! Perfect." —Michelle Williams

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two sizes).

Promising review: "Very pleased with the product, came with the necessary hardware, easy to install, seems pretty sturdy, and solved a storage problem — no more piles of rolled towels on top of my toilet tank, and now I can reserve the hooks on my bathroom door for towels that are currently in use... Arrived quickly and intact. If I had a drill I would have installed it myself. It only took a handyman about five minutes. Good product at a decent price." —Kilidonia de Acero

Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in seven colors).

Promising reviews: "Best sheets I’ve ever owned. Absolutely in love with these linen sheets. I was nervous about making the switch from cotton, but I sleep hot and was told linen was the way to go. So glad I did! Super soft and comfortable, not stiff or scratchy at all. Definitely has lessened night sweats for me!" —Matthew M.

"Great for hot sleepers or if you get sweaty at night — the linen is naturally moisture-wicking and feels cozy without making you overheat. They’re not as smooth as cotton, but I adjusted to the texture really quickly, and they are amazingly cozy. I sleep so much better with these sheets! Love them." —Meara

Get the set from Brooklinen for $259+ (available in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California King sets and in 10 colors).

Promising review: "I can't imagine not having this now. I just feel so much fresher after using it. It looks nice and is well worth the money. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone." —Sharon L

YouCopia is a woman-owned small biz that makes ingenious home and kitchen storage solutions.

Promising review: "Do I really need a tea bag organizer? That's what I was thinking when I ordered this. And when I took it out of the box. And when I filled the first little bag holder. But as the pile of empty boxes grew larger, I knew the answer was yes, I do need a tea bag organizer. I was using a whole shelf and a half of jumbled tea boxes, which I had to sift through to look for a specific tea. In the end, I think this held about eight or nine boxes of tea bags (I crammed some of them). I am so happy that I got this!" —Sarah C.

Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in two sizes).

Promising reviews: "I bought this for my college son who loves iced coffee and who always spends too much money getting them. This was a perfect gift! He was loving it! He says it's easy to use and the flavors were terrific. You can make it however strong you want." —Amazon Customer

"This cold brew coffee maker is AMAZING and makes some of the best cold brew I’ve ever had. It’s the perfect size for a college student like myself and is sooo easy to make and clean. Couldn’t recommend more!!!" —Scott Powers

Get it from Amazon for $27.99+ (available in two sizes).

Promising review: "It took me forever to find a good mat, and I’m so happy I found this one! The color and pattern are nice. It’s comfy to stand on while I’m prepping and cooking; it’s definitely reduced my fatigue and knee pain by a ton. Firm but cushiony. ... It’s really easy to clean, and looks great still after a few months of use! We have a very active kitchen, and it’s been through a lot so far, and survived unscathed, so I’m looking forward to a long life from it. I’ll probably buy a longer one to go on the other side of the kitchen!" —Cora Baker

Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in five sizes and 14 colors/patterns).

Promising review: "I am renting, and didn't want to change out light switch fixtures to get smart switches. Instead, I just installed a few of these things around my house to smarten up my home. I bought two, and they both work great. They have enough strength to control most paddle switches. I am definitely thinking about getting more to control more appliances in my home, such as my coffee maker. Highly recommended!" —Jake W.

Get it from Amazon for $29 (available in black and white).

This device is portable and has continuous play, memory function, non-looping sounds, and a one-to-five-hour timer setting.

Promising reviews: "Amazing product, has helped me to improve my relaxation levels. I struggle with balancing stress and I think too much, and this little gadget has tremendously improved my life." —Anna Morales

"This tiny machine is loud enough to drown out annoying neighbors throwing loud parties somewhere; it drowns out my sister's dog's unnecessarily loud barking, and I’m at peace. I’m now deeply attached to this product as I’ve always had chronic sleep problems and have sensory issues. My sleep environment is so chill now; I can actually tell a difference in my sleep quality 'cause I go into a deep sleep and wake up like an ancient god that slept a thousand years. Best investment ever. Also cool sounds too." —Paloma G.

Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

Promising review: "I've been looking for something like this forever. I have a hard time falling and staying asleep when there is any bit of light in my bedroom. Especially the lights on phone chargers and my fan. Stumbled across these in a BuzzFeed article and figured what the heck. They came quickly, and I immediately put them to use. As the instructions state, you do have to use more than one depending on how much light you want to dim. I am not disappointed. Would highly recommend and will buy again." —Kindle Customer

Get them from Amazon for $1.49.

Promising review: "Great for organizing. Bins are clear so you could easily see what you have and what you need. These are a perfect addition for my refrigerator to keep items organized and within reach. They are sturdy and will last a long time. Very easy to clean. Will recommend this." —Deepika

Get it from Amazon for $15=6.99+ (available in four sizes and in packs of two, four, six, eight, or 14).

Promising review: "This product is amazing. Every time I ran the dishwasher there was this horrible smell. So much that you could smell it throughout the apartment. I even started just hand-washing my dishes. But after about a week, the smell came back. I bought so many products to try and eliminate the smell, but after a couple of days, it would come back. Then I saw this product on BuzzFeed and thought to myself, why not? The first time I used it cleaned it out pretty well. Better than the other products. But then I used it a second time, and there was no smell. I'm going on two weeks of using my dishwasher, and I can't smell anything. I highly recommend this if you're having the same problem I was. This is by far the best kitchen cleaning product I've ever purchased." —khrystyne torres

Get a four-pack from Amazon for $3.78+ (available in two styles).

Promising review: "The product was easy to install on a 32" TV. The LED strip consists of attachment ends that allow you to decide how much (or how little) you need. The placement is a little uneven because of my TV wall mount hardware, but THIS IS A GREAT PURCHASE. This adds to the ambiance of my room as well as enhancing movies and shows. Remote is highly responsive to chosen color changes. Grateful for the brightness adjustment and fade setting capabilities." —Jasmine

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in 6.56- and 14.3 ft).

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in four colors and four sizes).

Promising review: "These are nice pieces that helped me organize underneath my bathroom sink! They fit perfectly! After organizing everything, I was so surprised I had so much more room that I grabbed more items out of the linen closet to fill it up. I still have a lot of room left. I bought these based off the high ratings, and they hold true. (This is Brad's wife.)" —Brad J. Leahy

Get it on Amazon for $25.99 (available in two colors).

Promising review: "Luxurious look. This product has a fancy design and is super quiet! It's easy to use, and within seconds you will have wine ready to pour.

"A must-have for your kitchen. Beautiful, high quality. Even temperatures and great for roasting anything. So easy to clean also. The hardest decision is the color and size!" —Gail C., Sur La Table customer

Promising review: "These storage bags are fantastic. I live in a small apartment where storage space is at a premium. I use these to store my Costco toilet paper and paper towels so I don't need to make as many trips to the store. It keeps them in pristine condition and out of sight. The handles make them easy to pull in and out, and they fold up nicely when not in use. I'm thinking about getting two more since four will fit under my queen bed." —Kimberly Dorn

Get it from Life of Spice Designs on Etsy for $41+ (available in five widths).

Promising reviews: "I eat a primarily vegan diet, so I chop lots of vegetables! This knife has been great and has significantly reduced my food prep time because I can chop vegetables faster. With my other knives, I would sharpen them after every use but still they would be dull (just cheap knives), so it's so nice to have a quality chef's knife!" —Tara

"I've used the same knife for over five years. It's lightweight but substantial enough to offer good control, the grip is shaped and textured comfortably, and it holds an edge well and can be resharpened as needed. It's much better than most random cheap chef's knives from a big-box retailer or a knife block set." —Midbest

Get it from Amazon for $43.95.

Reviewers say it's especially great for plant parents with grow lights or reptile/bunny parents with heat lights inside their cages.

Promising reviews: "With this, you're able to see total, daily, and monthly energy usage, and I schedule things to turn off during the night and when we're not usually home/in that room much. A simple voice command still turns it on if it is needed during the scheduled off times. Hopefully this will lower our electric bill over time." —StephSchiff

"I use this for my bearded dragons! I love being able to schedule when their light will turn on and off. I can even turn them on or off individually, which is what I do when I clean their houses at night... The app works great and is easy to use, and no issues with disconnecting." —cc

Also, if you purchase the tapes in the Eco-Friendly packaging, you'll save money! I am very satisfied with my purchase!" —Wells Family

"I'm sort of a type A, so I like to keep all my things labeled. Especially all the different batteries and chargers that seem to come with everything we buy. I love being able to mark what everything is. It saves me from having to use a Sharpie on stuff, as my handwriting is awful. For $35, how can you possibly go wrong?" —Drew211

Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

Promising review: "I ordered this for my two cats, and this feeder is exactly what i needed. The app was super easy to download and set up, plus the feeder looks modern and stylish in my kitchen.

Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (available in black and white).

Promising review: "So I write this review to put all the bad ones to shame. This is the best vacuum I have ever used. If you are contemplating to get this vacuum, I highly recommend it. I’ll never go back to anything else. It’s built well, has great suction. It picked up a lot of my two dogs' hair (one big dog, one small dog), and also mind that two days ago I had my carpet professionally cleaned — now I’m questioning if they even did a really good job. The vacuum picked up a lot from my carpet, and I only vacuumed for a couple minutes. The only 'possible' negative I have is I wish it had a longer charge; however, I know what I signed up for by buying this one and not one that claims it lasts longer. All in all, I 100% recommend this product." —Chelsee Brooks

Get it from Amazon for $476.99.

Promising review: "These are the bomb! Since installing them, which was very simple, connecting them, also very simple, they have worked great! I have blackout heavy curtains on an extendable rod...I have them automated to open and close at specific times setup through Alexa and they do so without fail. They are not very loud at all...If you can afford it, love smart home devices then these are for you!" —SPD

Get it from on Ewart Woods on Etsy for $50.46 (originally $56.07; available in 10 colors and three styles).

Promising review: "One of those items I didn’t know I needed until I had it. As a busy mom of two little ones, I can’t even remember the last time I got to finish a hot cup of coffee. Until now! This truly kept my coffee warm for literal hours. And I love the wood grain look of it. It’s nice and doesn’t look cheap at all. I’m going to keep it on my desk for when I’m working, and I’ll never go without hot coffee again!" —ADR80

Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in two styles and five colors).

Promising reviews: "I have a small Sears portable dryer. Maybe half size of a regular one. Any heavy load does not dry completely. ESPECIALLY SHEETS. Put these little guys in, and they lift and separate the batch while it is drying, and everything comes out dry and fluffy. Well worth the money." —Amazon Customer

"Wool makes me itchy so was looking for plastic or silicone dryer balls. They look cute and work well. Can still hear them in the dryer but quiet overall compared to the plastic ones. Got a light color as I was nervous about color bleeding if it was poor quality material, but this seems to be similar to the cooking-/baking-grade silicone items I have.

Promising review: "This product is awesome! Truthfully we have tried so many different products to remove the fine hairs of my three dogs, and nothing really works short of a Shop Vac. I read about this product on BuzzFeed, as it was described as one of the 20 things to make your life easier. Holy cow, they weren’t kidding — this product works phenomenally well. It can roll in two directions; it collect the hairs inside a compartment so you can neatly dispose of dog/cat fur. No cleaning need be done to the roller. The designer of this product is a genius, can’t say enough about this product. For once, truth in advertising!" —GJH

Promising review: "What can I say!!?!? It was delivered today, and I couldn’t help but give it a spin after charging it up and connecting to the app. I have a 'robot mop' from another brand but all it does is release water slowly and drag a microfiber pad over the floor. The spinning pads in the back are what sold me on the SpinWave. It vacuums the floor as it mops. It’s extremely quiet so I can run it while my kids are sleeping. When it’s in the wet-mop mode, it avoids my area rugs and random toys left on the floor. I’ve searched for something like this for a while and couldn’t be happier with my purchase." —Wertz83
