This cordless vibrating heating pad is about to take your human body to a whoooole other level.

1. A 3-in-1 foldable magnetic wireless charger you'll honestly be mad you didn't know about before now?? It folds out from a small square into a rectangular charging pad with a spot for your iPhone, AirPods, *and* Apple Watch to charge all at the same time. A lot of travelers swear by it because it saves soooo much space in their luggage.

Promising review: "I use this product to charge my IPhone 13, AirPods, and Apple Watch. Prior to this 3-in-1 compact purchase, I have purchased three different kinds of 3-in-1 chargers — I frequently travel between school and home with carry-on bags on airlines and all of the previous stand version chargers doesn't fit well in my bags or I am always worried I would break. This is compact and folds so well that I can fit in my carry-on or in any zipper pockets without having to worry about breaking anything. Charger works really well and it is the best compact one you can find in market. Love it and been using it for two months now and no issues!!" —SBREDDY

2. An undetectable mouse jiggler for folks working at home who need to stay "active" on Gchat, Teams, or Slack and sometimes want to dash out to use the bathroom or walk the dog without doing the whole "BRB, BACK IN A BIT!!" song and dance every time they dare to get up from their desk.

3. A portable car vacuum so the next time you explore the great outdoors or enjoy a particularly messy snack you don't have to coexist with the evidence until the next time you do a deep car clean. With this easy peasy gadget, you can scoop it all up and leave your interiors looking brand spanking new.

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in three colors).

4. A belted portable cordless vibrating heating pad to ease your cramps and pains (*glares pointedly at my uterus*) and/or keep you nice and cozy on chillier days. The fact that it looks vaguely like a piece of superhero armor is just an added perk.

Check out a TikTok of the heating pad in action. Reviewers note you should definitely wear it *over* your clothes! 

Promising review: "Oh my god. This might be the best thing I have ever bought. It gets so incredibly warm. You do need to wear it over clothes to prevent burns but as someone who never finds any heat pack warm enough the lowest setting is exceptionally hot. As someone who has really bad menstrual cramps and chronic constipation this little belt does it all. The heat is so soothing and adjustable and heats up so fast. The vibration is my favorite part. It helps so much with trapped gas and bloating pains. It breaks up all the little bubbles and can even move things along if you’re having a hard time using the bathroom. The various patterns and heat combinations allow this to be truly customizable to however you feel at the time and it’s fantastic. Absolutely worth every cent." Chloe

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in nine colors). 

5. A wireless charger bedside lamp with a built-in speaker so you can have what is arguably a lil' nightlight, television, and boombox all in one — this not only charges your phone, but lets you prop it up as a stand so you can stream content through the Bluetooth speaker.

Promising review: "I wasn’t expecting much from this product based on the price. A night light at best. I was pleasantly surprised to find it was a light with three different settings. I love that feature. The Bluetooth speaker has amazing sound quality for my bedroom and can be heard all through the master bathroom and both master closets. How cool is that?! It also has a phone charger that works. Just hook your phone cord into the lamp and place your phone on the charger pad. I highly recommend this item!!" —Bunny Honey

Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (clip the 50% off coupon on the product page for this price). 

6. A set of shatterproof solar-powered outdoor lights to add some whimsy to your backyard space without using up your electricity. Reviewers are especially impressed by how weatherproof these are, and how they continue to perform over time!

Promising review: "To say I love these lights would be a understatement. They’re easy to hang, great looking, bright and they work amazingly!!! On a sunny days, these lights charge enough to stay on from sunset to sunrise. Yep! That’s right! They’re still on until sunrise. These are the only brand of solar lights that I’ve ever purchased that last that long (and I’ve gone through more than my share of solar light.). These are DEFINITELY worth the price. You won’t be disappointed!! Btw — this is the fourth set I purchased; I love them that much. The first set I purchased is over a year old and they’re still working as well as they did on day one." —Josie Elliot-Goforth

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in two lengths). 

7. An adorable wireless portable charger so you can text in the group chat with reckless abandon during all your adventures without worrying about your phone croaking right before it's time to summon an Uber.

Promising review: "The holy grail of portable chargers!!! I was traveling to Disney for vacation and knowing me, I would drain my battery with just taking pictures alone. I wanted a portable battery but didn’t want a carry a cord either, so I was excited when I found this little baby! It does exactly as described, pretty pink color, and I get one full charge of battery for my iPhone 11. Get it, you will not be disappointed!" —Meghan Doble

Get it from Amazon for $29.75+ (clip the 15% off coupon on the product page for this price; available in six colors). 

8. A phone flash drive compatible with juuuust about all your gadgets (I'm talking iPhone, iPad, Android, PC, the whole nine yards) you can use to easily move thousands of photos, hours of videos, or private files without dealing with finicky Wi-Fi or that dreaded "Attachment File Too Large To Send" message in your email.

Promising review: "This product saved my videos and photos! I was unaware of my cellphone getting at its full storage limit and when it notified me it was at a critical point because while I was trying to transfer my media content to my laptop. My cloud backup was restoring the old content to my phone and getting it full again causing it to get frozen! I knew I had to find a quick and effective solution before heading to the Apple store. Good thing I found this USB flash drive which I plugged it in directly to iPhone and was able to transfer all I needed in seconds! Very easy to use. I would only suggest printing the instructions on a larger font size." —Haidee 

Get it from Amazon for $18.74+ (available in three memory storage capacities and five colors). 

9. A flexible power strip complete with three outlets, two USB ports, and a 5-foot extension cable designed so you can fit it into weird nooks and crannies around or under your desk while still being able to plug in bulky chargers.

Promising review: "I rarely write a review (this is the second in the past few years). One of the best purchases in a long time. Nice design and very practical. It solves all of my problems as it can go any direction. It's worth every penny. I turned around and bought two more. I am about to buy my fourt one. Love this!" —Pond P. 

Another promising review: "I saw this on TikTok, so I ordered one. I absolutely love it. Everyone needs one in their life." —Dani Jo Stengar

10. A Kindle/iPad remote control page turner to let you lay back in bed or the tub and read to your heart's content *without* constantly lifting your whole hand to turn the technological page. At the press of a button this does it for you. Reading really IS magic!!

Psst — a lot of reviewers like to pair this with a gooseneck tablet holder so it'll stay upright in front of them without having to hold it! 

Promising review: "This product makes reading so damn convenient. It’s so easy to hold, you can strap it onto your wrist so you don’t misplace it when using it. So far the battery life has been spectacular. I just mirror my iPad screen to my TV and make the font size hysterically large and get under my covers and just click away. I don’t have to move a muscle. I don’t know why I didn’t buy this sooner. I’m so obsessed. This is a must have for anyone who reads from a Kindle or iPad. Just cocoon yourself under your blankets and enjoy your book without having to stick a hand out into the cold to turn the page. It sounds lazy but trust me once you have a clicker, you won’t know what to do without one." —Jessica

Get it from Amazon for $32.99

11. A cleverly designed retractable window sunshade you can install on the side of your car's front window and easily fan back out in mere seconds to pop into place. No more getting into your car and feeling like you just sat yourself into hot lava!!

Promising review: "I purchased this windshield cover for our RV, it holds the heat out and covers the window completely! Well worth the money, it’s sturdy and the suction cups hold up for long periods of time!" —Allison

Get it from Amazon for $27.87.  

12. A SwitchBot Smart Switch Button Pusher to turn virtually *any* device with a press-able "on/off" switch into smart tech in an instant. Once you adjust the device over the button — be it a light switch, a switch to turn on your kettle, or a switch to turn on a fan — you can ask Alexa or Google Home to turn it off or on, or control it via an app on your phone.

Reviewers love this because it doesn't require you to "smart enable" other parts of your home. It's also a great way to turn on your kettle or coffee brewer from the other room so it's ready for you when you get out of bed! 

Promising review: "This is exactly what I was looking for and had no idea it existed until I saw someone mention it on TikTok! Our front walkway gets pretty dark at night, and I was frustrated with trying to remember to turn on the light every evening and off every morning. I looked into those light sensors you can plug in, but our front porch light is under an awning with enough shade that it would have kept the light on 24/7. This little Switchbot solved the problem. I applied it to the indoor light switch and set the time on my phone. It has worked perfectly ever since." —Alecia McLochlin

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

13. A rose gold rechargeable electric lighter you can use to replace all your old gas ones. This one is not only chic as heck, but completely flameless, and made with a long stem so you can use it to light gas burners and larger candles without dealing with an open flame.

This also comes in other pretty colors, but I am especially partial to this one because I bought it for my parents (their kitchen is entirely pink and one of my favorite places on Earth), and this was SO EASY to use — not to mention super safe! I'm a big weenie about fire (LOL, self-preservation) so I've always stuck to extended-arm gas lighters, but this is much better for the environment (plus cuter), so I feel a lot better about using it. You can read my full review of the Leejie electric lighter for more deets!

Promising review: "Works like a charm. I saw this on a TikTok. Knew immediately that I needed it. I love candles and this is so much better than a match or lighter. It’s kept a charge for months. I use it several times a month." —dwhite3012

Get it from Amazon for $9.89 (available in five colors).

14. A plug-in color-shifting mushroom light for anyone whose little cottagecore heart could use an extra dose of cozy to calm them down.

Promising review: "I LOVE this night-light. It's in my bathroom and is a lovely addition. It turns off the second the lights go on, which is nice because I don't have to worry about accidentally leaving it on. Super cute and the little itty-bitty lighting element does a good job lighting, just enough so I don't have to turn the main lights on in the middle of the night." —1Thand

Get it from Amazon for $5.97

15. A portable handheld fan that's also a flashlight that's *also* a power bank for phones, all of which to say is that for one tiny gadget it is officially doing The Most (TM). Travelers especially love all three of these deeply convenient functions!!

Promising review: "Our vacation planner suggested getting something like this for when you're waiting in line at an amusement park when the sun is out. Best advice ever, used this when we were at Disney this past year. It's lightweight and doesn't weigh you down, the fan has adjustable speeds and also includes a phone charger via USB A port and also a flashlight function. Love that it folds up nice and small, great fan that I'd recommend to anyone!" —Andrew

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

16. A slim profile ink-free Bluetooth printer you can boss around from your computer, phone, or tablet to quickly print black and white images on thermal paper — excellent for printing shipping labels, articles, or quick memos on the go. Travelers also love how ridiculously portable it is!

Promising review: "This specific printer is lightweight but very sturdy. The app is super easy to use; it's got a media library that has layouts and other clipart styles. The printer is also relatively quiet and I have not had any issues with loading the paper straight, you just have to be dedicated to inserting the paper. Do not be super gentle with the paper or it will print on the paper crooked. Customer support is awesome and the quality if nice and worth the price, in my opinion. The paper, as stated in other reviews, is costly however I think not paying for ink evens it out." —Kapizanami

Get it from Amazon for $209.99 (available in three colors). 

17. A HiMirror, which is an LED-lit smart mirror with a slide-out touch screen you can use to stream content *and* do your makeup at the same time.

You can use the screen for other apps too, like checking the weather or social media or getting personalized skincare tips. 

Promising review: "I’ve had the Slide for almost a week now and can’t picture my skincare/makeup routine without it. I love being able to use the makeup lights, watch a YouTube video, and use the mirror at the same time. I definitely recommend this to those looking for a lighted mirror." —Brianna

18. An electric knife that makes carving turkey, roast beef, and ham such a breeze that you'll low key be like, "Um, Thanksgiving dinner every night??" Reviewers also LOVE this for getting clean, even slices on bread loaves and trickier veggies like tomatoes.

19. A rechargeable mini USB fridge deodorizer perfect for banishing that ~off~ smell that lingers in your fridge even after you deep clean it. Reviewers also swear by it for deodorizing other small spots in their homes, like shoe closets, laundry rooms, and even their cars.

Promising review: "I love how little space this deodorizer takes up. I’ve had a few different brands and types, but all were fairly bulky. This charged fast, and I love I only need to recharge monthly. My fridge hasn’t smelled once since I’ve started using." —Amazon Customer

Psst — a lot of folks also use these for pancake and protein pancake bites! 

Promising review: "I bought this in hopes to make egg bites similar to Starbucks and I have not been disappointed. I chose this one after reading reviews on the smaller four-bite size. I have used it multiple times and have had excellent results each time. I followed the recipe in the booklet and used a tip from another reviewer that suggested to triple the cottage cheese amount. It’s very easy to use and clean." —April124

Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (available in three colors).

Promising review: "I used to buy bottles of tea in the store and decided to look for a least expensive way to still enjoy iced tea. This is most definitely an easy way to do it, especially with increasing prices of everything these days. I was spending at least $50-$60 a month purchasing bottles of tea, now I’m only spending $4-$5 every month or two on tea bags." —Kathy B.

Get it from Amazon for $8.01 (available in two colors and in a three-pack). 

23. A ridiculously fun "Ice Cream Ball," because what every freezer really needs is an orb of homemade ice cream. This manual ice cream maker whips up a pint of it in as little as a half an hour, no electricity required — all you have to do is keep the ball rolling. (Literally, not figuratively, so get ready to put some kiddos to the task!)

The sky is the limit on flavors and mix-ins, too — the reviewer photo above used brown sugar, vanilla extract, and Nutella! 

Promising review: "This was such a fun purchase. I saw it on TikTok and thought it would be a great gift for my nieces and nephew and it was. We adults ended up having a blast passing the ball and shaking it up with the kids as well. One drawback is that the portion to make the ice cream is kinda small so would not recommend for a large family (or maybe get multiple!) but otherwise it’s a fun present, fairly easy to clean and the instructions are easy to follow. Oh! And the ice cream was DELICIOUS!" —Marina Affo

Get it from Amazon for $44.82+ (also available with rock salt included). 

24. A touchless waterproof bathroom trashcan to help minimize the touching of all the icky germs that come with existing in a bathroom. Pet owners also love this for minimizing ~treasure hunts~ from their four-legged friends.

Promising review: "This trash can is very quick and responsive. As you are reaching down to throw something away, it picks up the shadow of your hand and opens before you even get to the can. Stays open for five seconds and then closes by itself. It works with just the nightlight on as well. I have had no false or random openings so far. Definitely going to buy another one." —Mad Duck

Get it from Amazon for $39.99

25. A kitchen-safe locking container reviewers *swear* by for getting themselves motivated and focused — you can put items like your phone in it to prevent yourself from getting sucked into a TikTok hole while you're studying or distracted from chatting with friends at the dinner table.

Kitchen Safe is a US-based small business that specializes in lockboxes to help curb distracting habits.  

Promising review: "This product has saved me in many ways. I’ve been struggling with trying to focus studying for my classes. I’d always end up on my phone and barely get any work done. I have a bad habit of trying to find any distraction possible when it’s time to study or do work on my computer. Until I saw this product on a YouTube video. I had to fix this problem ASAP so I decided to try this product. It was pretty easy to set up. When I was done I locked my phone away and any other distractions for about an hour at a time. Instant game changer. Since there is no distractions I’m forced to do my work or just sit there doing nothing for an hour. I don’t like to waste time so I’m always gonna choose to do the work. This product has definitely increased my productivity by a landslide. I recommend this product if you sometimes just need a kick in the ass to get going and focus on your work." —Michael Okoro

Promising review: "Bought for travel. On one day where I needed to use the phone more, I realized that my phone was low on power but was able to connect it to the power bank. It charged very quickly and I was able to keep going without disruption. Quite a relief! It, of course, has just a bit of a heft to it, as expected with a battery like this, but nothing too bad. It’s compact enough to be easily portable (I tucked it into a pocket of my tote)." —MAB
