And an ingenious champagne stopper, which doesn’t just reseal your precious bottle but also increases the pressure inside to preserve the bubbles.

10.

A roll-up dish rack that’s so much more than a dish rack. It’ll save you a ridiculous amount of counter space, both during cooking and cleanup, since you can use it to dry dishes, thaw meat, and strain veggies, or even as just another place to put cutting boards and dishes during meal prep. And when you’re done, you can just roll it up and put it under the sink!


11.

Nizoral shampoo, which markets itself as anti-dandruff but can also be used as a game-changing wash-off mask to clear up fungal acne breakouts. Just look at these pics — it’s miraculous either way.


12.

A wall-mounted bathroom organizer that’ll pretty much handle all your latrine needs in one fell swoop. It comes complete with several storage compartments and hooks, a towel bar, a phone holder, two to three sleek cups, room for up to four toothbrushes, and even a toothpaste dispenser!!

14.

A clever blending bottle that can take over every single part of the pancake-making process. It’s got a cap that doubles as a stand to fill it with mix, plus a built-in whisk ball so you can just shake it to mix your batter. Then you can squeeze out the perfect, mess-free amount into the pan. Batter up!

Mike’s Hot Honey, a chili-infused honey that may make you realize you’ve been eating food wrong all your life — because pretty much anything is better with this stuff on it. Time to throw out all your other condiments, because you’ve found the one topping that works just as well for pizza and chicken as it does for ice cream and even in cocktails.


18.

A four-in-one hole repair product that is a squeeze bottle of spackle with a built-in primer, plus has a built-in putty knife on the top and a sanding pad on the cap, so even the least-handy people ever (me) can easily get their security deposit back with just one convenient product.

19.

An amazing and super-stretchy maxi dress with long straps you can wrap, tie, and drape in over 24 (!!!) different ways. Finally, the excuse you’ve been waiting for to order 24 new dresses (you can fit them all on one hanger ?).


20.

Or, for more high-fashion moments, an absolutely epic Hanifa robe dress you can rock as a coat, a dress, a sweater, a robe…it’s pretty much everything you could ever want it to be and more. Whatever type of garment you decide to wear it as, it’s here to help you make a dramatic entrance.

22.

A sleek toilet paper holder featuring a handy basket for storing your phone, a book, wipes, or whatever your on-the-john must-haves are without having to worry about dropping ’em in the bowl. A poem for you: It’s 2022, we all bring our phones to the loo, and honestly I think all toilet paper dispensers should be designed this way, too.


23.

A multifunction pocket tool to keep on hand, because Scar may have been evil and all, but he had a point — you should always BE PREPARED. Even if you are someone (like me) who can’t tell different types of wrenches apart, you’ll be glad to have several at your disposal so you can be a hero next time you’re at a party and something breaks (or, ya know, someone needs a bottle opener).

24.

Or an 11-in-1 tool complete with (*takes big breath*) standard and needle nose pliers, a knife, a saw, a wire cutter, slotted and Phillips screwdrivers, a bottle opener, a can opener, a file, and a rope cutter. If you don’t want to be caught unprepared, this is a great option to keep in your junk drawer or car.

25.

A sheet of oh-so-clever window film that puts the fun in “multifunctional.” Not only will it give you the privacy you’ve been desperate for (hello, walking around in your undies in the middle of the day), but it’ll also provide a unique decor element to your home by projecting a cool prism effect when the sun hits it just right.


26.

A handy-dandy dish squeegee sure to make anyone who has ever done dishes and touched icky leftover food or struggled to clean up a spill say, “Where have you been all my life?!?!” One side is curved so it works on bowls as well as plates, and it can clean up sinks and countertops just as easily as it can dishes.


27.

An absolutely brilliant mini masterpiece that’s both a bookmark and a reading log. The adorable illustration features 50 blank book spines for you to color in and write in titles as you make your way through your reading list, and then you can save it as a permanent record of your bookworm tendencies.


28.

A sleek and versatile pan with a built-in steamer and colander basket and a spatula that rests right in the handle. It’s designed to be able to sear, braise, sauté, boil, fry, and serve all in one, so you’ll get a ton of use out of this wonder. And even with all that practical stuff aside…it’s sooooooo pretty.


29.

A worth-the-splurge Roomba robot vacuum to really and truly clean your home for you. It is compatible with Alexa, works with an app that allows you to fully customize its routine and make a map of your home, and even EMPTIES ITSELF (!!!) into its docking port for up to 60 days. Yup, all you gotta do is program it and change out the bag every two months — I think even you have time for that.


30.

A three-in-one avocado tool that’s a splitter, de-pitter, and slicer all at once, because the only bad part about eating avocados is actually trying to get all that goodness out of the skin.


31.

Versatile and glitzy celestial ear jackets with optional cascading stars in the back. Rock ’em with the fringe for a bold statement, or wear just the front for a simpler stud that still packs a punch. Heck, you could even use the fringe part with different stud earrings. However you style ’em, your lobes will look ~out of this world~.

32.

A genius butter dish and grip set that’ll put your butter knife out of business. This is all you need to both store and spread buttery goodness — just pop the stick straight onto the grip and spread away for hassle-free pan greasing.
