A pair of ceiling fan charms — one that's a *clearly* discernible lightbulb and the other a fan blade — so you never tug on the wrong pull (and then have to tug it four more times to shut it off) again.

A set of nail decals in a dark starry design that will have people asking how you can afford such detailed manicures every week.

A pick-and-peel stone for anyone whose anxiety manifests itself in impulsive nail biting or pimple popping. Pick up one of these dudes and you can scratch your lil' heart out without causing yourself any physical damage.

Promising review: "This is the definition of 'product you didn't know you needed because you didn't know it existed.' I was FOREVER pulling the wrong chain on our bedroom ceiling fan. (Want the light off? Oh the fan's on high. Need to change the fan speed? you're in the dark.) They're much better quality than I expected. They're actually quite heavy-duty pull chains, and they add a bit of fun to the decor." —LHD

Promising review: "So glad that I came across these. I love having this information handy and easy to use. The magnetic sheets are strong and stay in place well, even with the fridge door opening and closing a lot. It's handy having them right in view for quick reference. It helps us to use the air fryer more, as it's easy to glance over and time things correctly. I like that it is a dark color so it doesn't get messy as easily, and it has all the things we are most likely to use the air fryer for. The envelope the magnetic sheets come in is cute and would make a nice gift, perhaps in a basket or bag of related items. Happy to have these!" —Small~Town~Girl

Get them from Amazon for $6.45+ (available in black, white, a multi-color bundle and a Spanish version).

It even includes 1 Hour Express Strips that give you same-day results if you need a little last-minute whitening!

Promising review: "Great product! I was skeptical at first, because any OTC teeth-whitening product I’ve ever used never worked for me. Only professional dental bleaching has. I tried this and saw a difference after the fifth treatment. I did like that you can use it every day until you’re done with all 14 treatments. That way you can see results a lot faster. I’ll be repurchasing this regularly now (every six months like it says) to always have a nice white smile." —Danny

Get a pack of 44 from Amazon for $45.99.

Promising review: "HOLY SMOKES. I wasn't expecting this product to work so well. Literally 10 seconds after spraying and gently stretching as the directions suggested, this was the difference! I let it hang for another 15 mins with a subtle improvement, but the first few seconds after were mind-blowing. Highly suggest this product if wrinkled garments are planning your closet." —Desiree

Get two bottles from Amazon for $15.94.

BuzzFeed editor Melanie Aman has one and raves, saying:

"I love my CHEF iQ Smart Cooker for a lot of reasons but mainly the smart auto pressure release, so I no longer have to cross my fingers and hope my dinner doesn't explode in my face when I release the pressure valve by hand. It also has a handy built-in scale, which is super useful when a recipe calls for grams and the American education system once again fails me. On top of doing everything your old pressure cooker could do plus a whole heck of a lot more, my CHEF iQ Smart Cooker just looks a lot sleeker, meaning I can leave it out on the counter without it being an eyesore."

Get it from Amazon for $124.99.

BTW — Tablift is a small business created by Scott Blevins after he had trouble finding a tablet stand for his bed. This is compatible with Apple, Samsung, Microsoft, and most other tablets (but you may have to remove the case in some cases).

Promising review: "I wondered how the flexible legs might be. The problem I envisioned was that the legs would deflect as I used the support — nope! Not at all! It's flexible AND stable in just the right way. The legs twist in a wide variety of positions and the STAY where I put them. I use it for reading in bed at night mostly but have also used it's on the couch while watching TV. Ideal in each instance. Great job!" —R. Steven Cooper

Get it from Amazon for $43.99.

INH Hair is a woman-owned small biz based in Los Angeles. They aim to get you the best quality and trendiest styles and boost your confidence. Their buns are made of vegan synthetic fiber from Japan. Make sure to read their tips on styling and care!

Promising review (for the messy bun): "My bun game has gone to a new level! Very easy to apply and the feel is very realistic, it doesn't feel like a synthetic hair! The color match was to a tee. I have quite fine hair so my usual buns look very odd (like a round pot handle vibe) but with the Sammy, I feel so confident and put together. The application was super easy and unlike some of the ponies that make you feel weighted, there was no issues with feeling tightened or restricted on my scalp." —Jia

Get them from INH Hair: the messy bun for $36 (originally $36) and the space buns for $43.20 (originally $54, both available in a variety of colors).

Promising review: "Housework has a lot to teach about physics, math, and philosophy. There is no greater reminder of the Sisyphean fight against entropy than household chores, and Zeno's paradox is exemplified by the little line of dirt left behind by the dustpan, reducing in magnitude by half each time you try to sweep it up, and yet you can never make it go away. The existential crisis I have every time I clean my house has been alleviated by the EyeVac. Just sweep the undesirable atoms (cat hair and litter) into the sensor zone of the vacuum, and like an event horizon, the dirt disappears, sucked into the black hole of the EyeVac. Highly recommended." —Joy

Get it from Amazon for $126.99+ (available in eight colors).

The queen-size pillow features a zippered design so you can easily pull out/readjust the down-alternative inserts as needed.

Promising review: "Thank god for this pillow!!! I’ve been on the search for a while now and I am so happy with this one. I took two of the layers out and now it's perfect for me. Nice and soft and still supportive. I’m sleeping so much better now." —Anna Durtschi

Get it from Amazon for $79.99+ (available in two sizes).

Promising review: "Never thought something analog would be SO useful in my daily routine. I work from home and am constantly project managing multiple complex strategic projects. Having pertinent information directly in front of me and top of mind has done incredible things for my productivity. Never would have imagined it would make such a difference. For a nominal investment, I highly recommend it if you have trouble keeping up with things." —Captainflapjax

Get it from Amazon for $30.07+ (available in five styles).

Promising review: "I never thought I’d be writing a review for straws, but here we are. These are FANTASTIC. I try to be as eco-friendly as possible but was ready to give up. I’ve tried metal straws, but they are tough to clean and I don't love metal against my teeth. I’ve tried other reusable plastic and silicone options but they don't work for thicker drinks like smoothies. These actually address all of my issues. I’ve used them for thick smoothies, that I drink daily, and just for other everyday drinks like water. They couldn't be easier to snap open and clean, dry, then easily snap back into shape to use again." —M. Alexandria

Get a set of eight from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in five colors and styles).

Promising review: "LIFE-CHANGER. I don't have to bring my whole purse with me anymore. This fits so much more than expected and the colors are perfect. The blue especially is beautiful. Good quality." —Tia

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $12.99 (available in three color combinations).

Promising review: "I recently bought a high quality leather shoulder strap handbag and was having problems with it sliding off my shoulder, since the leather strap was fairly smooth. So I went online and searched to see if there were any products out there that would solve this issue...and I found the Purse Gummy! It works beautifully! No more struggling with a slipping strap. It is hardly noticeable on the strap since it is on the underside, but I wouldn't mind it if was seen because it works so well." —D. Dillon

Get a six-pack from Amazon for $13.95 (available in three colors).

Two Lilacs Studio is a small shop based in Saint Helens, Oregon run by Jacy Stratton.

Promising review: "LOVE these splash catchers! They save me from having to chase the puddles that form around the base of our faucet before they start creeping over the counter. So reasonably priced, made well with neatly finished edges, and packaged with gift-ready care." —Alina

Get it from Two Lilacs Studio on Etsy for $13.50+ (available in four sizes and six colors).

Promising review: "Y’all purchase this shirt! My husband was so excited to get this! Bonus: It comes with a cute Dad certificate and its own little matchbox car to drive! The perfect dad gift!" —Paige

Get it from Amazon for $19.95+ (available in men's sizes S–5X and three colors).

Pick 'N Peel Stones is a Pittsburgh-based small business. Renee Benn started the company as a channel for their anxiety after they lost their job. Each lava rock is covered in nooks and crannies that are filled with latex glue. The fun, soothing, anxiety-reducing part is using the picking hook to slowly excavate the holes. Each kit comes with a filled stone, a picking hook, and a stone filler.

Promising review: "I can't believe I waited so long to buy this! It shipped super quick and definitely keeps my hands busy. I thought I would go through the paint super quick but I haven't even needed to reapply yet. My anxiety is so bad lately I was picking my nails until they bled and hurt for days afterward. Since I got this stone I haven't picked my nails at all! I’m so glad I finally ordered it. If you’re thinking about this, get it, now!" —Andrea Fercho

Get it from Pick 'N Peel Stones on Etsy for $30.

Promising review: "These fish contain silver in a compound that dissolves slowly. Silver is bacteriostatic, it will not clean up a mess but it will seriously help prevent one unless your water source is not reasonably clean. Affluent Romans kept their water and wine in silver flasks for the same reason." —Robert Ezerman

Get it from Amazon for $5.28 (also available in a two-pack).

Delightful Luna is an Etsy shop based in North Carolina. They sell cool 3D-printed accessories, including magnets, keychains, and pen caps.

Promising review: "They are perfect! Now my bf won't steal my charger anymore. They clip so well!" —Etsy Customer

Get it from Delightful Luna on Etsy for $6.25+ (available in two charger types and 16 colors).

BuzzFeeder Jennifer Tonti credits this burner cover for helping her cook with ease:

"OK so I just bought this for my own tiny apartment (pictured above) and OMG you guys. Life = changed. Food = chopped. Counter space = doubled. I mean the math is all there."

Promising review: "This is so perfect for extra space. It covers the top of my apartment-sized stove so I can then use my stove space for my Instant Pot and food prep. The best space-saving and cosmetic thing I have ever gotten for this tiny apartment." —Talyn Amber Skye

Get it from Amazon for $27.95+ (available in five styles).

Here's more from BuzzFeed editor Maitland Quitmeyer:

"This is the best product *I* bought this year, actually! When I saw this disco ball bar cart on TikTok (and BTW, that TikToker also says it's their best purchase of the year!!), I just knew I had to have it. It's from a small biz based in the UK and while it did take a while to arrive (as I expected), it was *well* worth the wait. The light bouncing off the mirror fragments and onto my walls is just dang beautiful. Between the bottom tray and the space inside the globe (yes, the globe OPENS UP!), there's a nice amount of storage for bottles and glassware. And unlike regular bar carts, the things you keep inside the globe will actually stay dust free. I bought the "champagne" color (which is a nice neutral cream-beige) but it comes in tons of colors that'll go perfectly with your home decor. "

Get it from Glam Globes on Etsy for $263.56 (available in seven colors).

Promising review: "What a great little invention! Who knew that we needed one of these things, but what a handy little gadget to have. This comes with two rings, one that will fit a large jar of pickles and one for a small jar like the size those little sweet gherkins come in. The pickle fork thingy is easy to remove from the holder, and if you want to put it back in the holder after fishing out your pickles without rinsing it, no worries. The little pocket and the bottom can hold a lot of errant pickle juice. It works equally well on jars of olives. It makes removing an olive or two so much more...civilized!" —PT Cruiser

Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

The money-eating piggy bank accepts all standard change and it'll automatically open its mouth when it senses your hand.

Promising reviews: "This thing legitimately gave me a bit of anxiety when I first unboxed it. It was way creepier than expected. I think it might help me not be afraid of this one doll in my house I have nightmares about. This is much worse. I wouldn't recommend this for kids at all, but as a gag gift or interrogation tool I would say go for it." —mysticalkiwi

"Pink and horrifying. Right up my alley. I love this sucker. It sits there and judges me. It's sitting here and judging me now while I write this. 10/10 great companion, just don't get on its bad side." —Delaney Gillpatrick

Get it on Amazon for $16.99 (available in three colors).

SheetKeeper is a woman-owned small business based in Los Angeles.

Promising review: "Great product. Came quickly and they work great! Such a great idea to keep sheets organized and together while being able to tell what size bedding it is. Will order again for sure!" —devonhansen1

Get a set of two from SheetKeeper on Etsy for $13.99 (available in sizes twin—California king and duvet and comforter options).

The clippers have a file on the bottom and also come in a really nice case!

Promising review: "Best nail clipper I've ever owned. All my life I've had stainless steel nail clippers that slip from my fingers whenever I have to cut my nails, which bends the nail and adds pressure onto my nail bed. With these clippers, the groove lets my thumb sit comfortably. It cuts very well, and there's no need to put too much pressure when cutting a tough nail. The nail catcher is a good bonus. It prevents your nail debris from flying all over the place so you don't need to hover over the trash can. I use the built-in nail file to shape those sharp edges and it does the job very well. It eliminates the use of switching over to an individual nail file. I also like the little case that it comes in. It keeps me from losing my nail clippers." —Jasmine

Get them from Amazon for $13.99.

Just take it from my BuzzFeed shopping colleague Mal Mower:

"Those are my Crocs! And *my* accessory of choice. The only thing better than Crocs is MORE CROCS."

Get it from Crocs for $2 (originally $4.99).

LA Beautyologist is a Black- and woman-owned small business from esthetician Nai Roberts-Smith. She also owns her own studio — The Golden Rx Skin Studio — in LA, where she offers skincare and body treatments.

Get a pair from LA Beautyologist for $25 (originally $27, available in four colors).

What's included: Combing tool attachment and an adapter to expand compatibility (it works with the Dyson V6 through V11).

Promising review: "I could not write a better review for a better product — this thing is absolutely amazing. We have two German shepherds, a husky mix, and a a long-haired mini Aussie. I was skeptical about how well this would work because I bought other vacuum attachments in the past, but this thing blew my expectations out of the water. It's absolutely amazing, even with just a light brushing on our dogs it removed more than an entire canister of hair." —Shiane cleland

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

Wad-Free is a small biz from Cyndi Bray. Their products are made in the USA. Just pop the corners of your flat or fitted sheet into the device and you'll never have to deal with tangling and twisting again! Believe it or not (I mean believe it...the reviews are there) the manufacturer even says that your sheets will dry 75% faster and with fewer wrinkles.

Promising review: "I was skeptical when I first heard about these, but I saw good reviews and gave them a try. I immediately regretted not getting more so I could do a full load of just sheets but even having only two was a huge help. These things WORK. I'm buying four more right now." —Juliet S.

Get it from Amazon or Wad-Free for $19.99 (PS: they also make a version for blankets and duvets!)

Promising review: "This cup holder is perfect! It helps me a lot! Last time I took a plane with a suitcase and a cup of coffee, I dropped and spilled my drink everywhere when it was my turn to check my passport and ticket. It was a nightmare! This time, I bought this cup holder to do me a favor! I don't have to worry about where my cup and phone are! I can free my hands to do other things. I love it so much! Hope you love it too." —Philip

Get it from Amazon for $8.19+ (available in 33 colors/styles).

Ponyback is a small biz from Stacey Keller. When she couldn't find a hat that worked well with all hairstyles, she set out to make her own.

Promising review: "I can't believe how perfect this hat is — I wear my long, curly hair up 90% of the time and this works for ponytails, messy buns, braids, or any combo. It's SO comfy I don't even realize I am wearing it until my kids say to me 'no hats at the table' haha. This hat will be my summer lifesaver." —Nancy K.

Get it from Ponyback for $36+ (available sizes XS/S–L/XL and 11 colors and styles).

The quiet and compact stationary bike weighs just 51 pounds and is easy to move around thanks to four wheels. The desktop also has ample room for not only your laptop, but a drink, notebook, or whatever else you need close at hand.

Promising review: "Zoom meeting? No problem — pedal away! Teleworking? No worries about your cardio! I’ve been struggling to balance a new baby, running a business remotely, and getting exercise — until now! This bike is a lifesaver. The desk and seat are fully adjustable and it comes fully assembled (other then having to put in the desk). It rolls easily and stores small. I can't recommend highly enough!" —Angela P

Get it from Amazon for $499 (available in black and white).

Tattoorary is a Netherlands-based temporary tattoo and nail decal small business from owner/designer/photographer/illustrator Wilma Boekholt.

Promising review: (for the snake design) "These are SO fun, easy to apply, just cut out the ones you want, soak in water for a few seconds, then apply with tweezers! I did a topcoat after but not sure if that's necessary. So many compliments!" —rialschristensen

Get them from Tattoorary on Etsy for $3.99.

Promising review: "As someone who loses stuff easily, like my last set of AirPods, it's super nice to have something with a noticeable thickness and be super cute at the same time! Everything fits perfect for the case, I simply slipped it on with no signs of wiggling or sliding off. 10/10 recommend for a gift and self accessory ☆." —Jordan

Get it from Amazon for $10.99.
