This Incredible Whisk
via: AmazonOne of my least favorite parts of using whisks is how you have to struggle to clean them when you are done. This whisk does not sacrifice any of the utility, and it is so much easier to clean than the traditional whisk with the rounded head. Honestly, once you go beater whisk, you never go back. Get yourself a couple and change your life in an instant!
via: AmazonYou need nice knives, and you need easy-to-use cutting boards. This set comes with both. You get four stainless steel knives, a chef knife, a santoku knife, a utility knife, and a paring knife. Each of those comes with a case. You also get four sizes of cutting mats that have no-slip bottoms. And just for kicks, they throw in a set of kitchen shears, a veggie peeler, and a knife sharpener.
These Bubblegum Magnets
via: AmazonHave fun with the magnets on your refrigerator! Having fun was why magnets were invented*. These fridge magnets look just like ABC (already been chewed) bubblegum, which might gross out your guests but is super fun and funny! Just don't accidentally stick a real piece of gum up there. That would be bad because I think it would be really hard to scrape off after a while. *Don't quote me on that.
This Salt Box
via: AmazonThis is something you need. Stat. Seriously, I have one that's very much like this, only it is made of wood instead of marble. And it is one of the best kitchen purchases I have ever made in my life. With the dual compartments, you can put salt and pepper in there, and with the swivel lid, you get super easy access when you are cooking and you have to season quickly as you sauté or stir.
This Glass Pitcher
via: AmazonThis pitcher screams party to me! If you are ready to host a housewarming gathering or a holiday bash, this pitcher is perfect for big batch cocktails, brunch mimosas, or anything else! It comes with a lid, so you do not have to worry about spillage, and it holds up to 77 3/4 ounces. The handle makes it super easy to use and pour. Basically, get one of these and get entertaining!
This Dino Planter
via: AmazonDinosaurs are in. Geometric animals are in. Succulents are in. Clearly, you need this cute little planter. But if plants are not your thing, if you seriously think you would someone figure out how to kill a cactus, you can use this guy as a key holder, a jewelry holder, or a pen and pencil holder. Basically, you do not need an excuse to let this little dinosaur into your life.
This Dead Sea Mud Mask
via: AmazonThis mud mask uses a blend of oils, shea butter, and aloe vera to heal and exfoliate your skin, keeping it healthy and soft all day long. People absolutely rave about how their skin feels and looks after using this mud mask regularly. Plus, it is a total excuse for some much-needed self-care, and that is extremely important these days. So pamper yourself with mud!
This Cuticle Oil
via: AmazonIf you have rough cuticles, learn to take care of them with this little bottle of cuticle oil/ Just a few drops will nourish and moisturize those areas against your nails that seem to always get dry and cracked. All you need is one drop on each nail. This stuff is a special blend of different oils, honey extract, and milk extract. These all work to make your cuticles as healthy as possible again.
via: AmazonLife is tough these days. You deserve to relax and calm down once in a while. This essential oil diffuser will help you do just that. Just add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the base of the cute cactus, and the little guy will absorb the fragrance and diffuse it throughout your space. This little thing will work wonders for your mood.
This Body Oil
via: AmazonDon't stop at your cuticles! Your whole body deserves to be moisturized and nourished by a special blend of oils. This stuff softens dry skin, helps retain a youthful appearance, and hydrates your body to keep it healthy. Massage into your body and let it go to work! Reviewers say it smells lovely and hydrates your skin without feeling greasy and gross like some products do.
via: AmazonYou can use it for makeup! You can use it for jewelry! You can use it for tiny little notes you leave yourself! You can use it for anything. The point is that this storage case is practical, good-looking, and perfect. I love that you can see through it, so you do not have to dig around for that one eye pencil you always store in a different place. If pink isn't your jam, it comes in five other colors: black, bronze, clear, marble print, and purple.
This Door Stopper
via: AmazonA door stopper will come in handy way more than you think it will, especially if you are the type of people who like to entertain! And this one comes with a funny phrase on it so you are basically saying to people, "We are hip and fun and laid back and you should come watch a movie and eat snacks with us." If that isn't what you want to project, maybe this door stopper isn't for you.
via: AmazonI usually make popcorn on the stove in a pot with oil, but that usually results in way more popcorn than I could ever eat in one sitting (and a really oily pot that I then have to clean but usually don’t until like, two days later). It’s also like, kind of a lot of work. This microwave popcorn maker doesn’t even require oil, and it requires so little effort it’s insane.
These Butterfly Sticky Notes
via: AmazonSticky notes are not always the most fun. If you use Post-Its regularly, you understand that an avalanche of them at your desk can be kind of overwhelming. The reminders! The to-dos! It can all be way too much. But with these beautiful butterfly notes, you will love writing down your to-do list, and you will love accomplishing the tasks on it. These are just another easy way to bring a little loveliness into your life.
via: AmazonI will say that the most amazing thing about this kitchen scale is that the batteries are included. The batteries! Included! Where have you ever heard of such a thing? But I digress. This kitchen scales actually functions are great too. It gives you an accurate read every time so you can bake and cook with precision. And it turns off by itself after two minutes of non-use so you don't even have to worry about it.
This Lap Desk
via: AmazonI know they are called laptops because they are supposed to fit on your lap, but have you ever worked with a laptop straight on your lap for an extended period of time? It is not comfortable. This desk comes complete with a built-in mouse pad and a slot for your phone. It's got dual cushions to keep you comfortable and cool the whole time, and it can handle up to a 17-inch computer.
These Wooden Hooks
via: AmazonI love these little wooden hooks so much that they are now on my wishlist! I can't wait to move to a place where I have the wall space for them. These are so much more aesthetically pleasing than those white plastic Command hooks, but they do essentially the same job. And they stick to your wall in the same way, with 3M strips. Check the link because there are a few different sizes and color options.
This Water Flask
via: AmazonOne of the reasons I don't bring water bottles with me is because they are always so hard to fit in the bags I'm carrying! It really is that simple. And then poof! I'm not as hydrated as I should be. This giant flask is flat, so it fits way easier into a purse or a tote. Yes, it can also be used for things other than water, but I'm just excited at the possibility of being able to carry water with me without my bag bulging!
via: AmazonI feel like I would have such a more tidy home if I had one of these little guys. (I might just get one for myself.) Instead of having to reach around in your cleaning supply closet for a broom and a dustpan, you can hang this little guy right on your fridge or your wall and take it out for the smallest of spills! It's super handy and isn't a big to-do, which is important when I think about cleaning.
This Tracel Cosmetics Bag
via: AmazonI love this travel cosmetics bag because it is so easy to grab and go, and it is equally as easy to set up when you are in your hotel room or wherever you are traveling. And while it looks compact and won't take up an insane amount of space in your suitcase, it can hold a lot of stuff. The drawstring makes sure your stuff stays safe. And if this bright pink isn't your color, it comes in eight more colors and patterns!
These Odor Eliminating Bags
via: AmazonThousands of reviewers tout the powers of these bags of activated charcoal, specifically highlighting their abilities to freshen truly nasty old shoes or even drink up the odorrific remnants of spoiled milk inside a minivan. These are totally natural, using bamboo charcoal to absorb and remove all that stinky stuff from the air. You can reuse these for up to two years, just place the bags outside for an hour once a month to rejuvenate.
via: AmazonThis toothbrush case is perfect for the person (or couple) who likes to have everything in order when it comes to this part of their daily routine, even while traveling. The case opens up into a perfect holder for up to two toothbrushes, a case of toothpaste, and a small comb. That means you don't have to set your toothbrush down on the hotel sink! The other side of the case becomes a cup perfect for gargling.
This Cord Case
via: AmazonLet me paint a picture for you. It's me, at the airport, with the same carry-on bag I always use when I fly home for the holidays. I'm frantically searching for my earbuds, convinced that I have left them at home, and beyond saddened that I won't be able to use them for my 6-hour flight. Then, I do one last sweep and feel them, there, at the bottom of that weird outside pocket that I never use! If I had this case, I would always know where all my cords are.
via: AmazonThis is a genius product. Sometimes, you have to use a curling iron or a hair straightener right before you are heading out for the night or back to the airport. Even if you make sure to unplug it, it can remain dangerously hot for a little while. Use this mat to wrap it or to prop it up while it cools down to keep it totally safe.
These Packing Cubes
via: AmazonPacking cubes are like, so genius, I do not know why everyone doesn't use them. This set of six of them comes with a large cube, a medium cube, a small cube, and three different-sized laundry pouches for your smaller and more delicate items. There is no overstating how much easier these packing cubes will make your life. The difference, I promise, will be astounding.
These Reusable Gear Ties
via: AmazonThese gear ties, or as I like to call them, rubber miracle worms, will help you organize your cords, tie off your bags of chips, hold up your plant stems... The uses for them are endless. They may be little, but they are mighty. You can use them in any way you would use twist-ties, but these are rubber, not metal, so they are safe with your cords. And you can reuse them when you are done!
This Weekend Duffel Bag
via: AmazonI love a classic, old-fashioned duffel bag, and this is just that. This is the perfect weekend bag or gym bag. And it comes in tons of colors. This is the bright orange but I think my favorite is the burnt orange. The reviews say these bags are surprisingly sturdy, so if you want to use it for camping gear or something like that, it would totally work. These are supremely versatile bags!
These Silicone Pot Holders
via: AmazonLook, you need pot holders. That is non-negotiable. You can't be going around burning your hands every time you try to cook something. That is not good. So, you can either get boring old pot holders, or you can get these silicone pot holders that are not only perfectly shaped to hold pots, but they also look like giant pieces of pasta. It is up to you, but I know what choice I would make.
These Hanging Fruit Baskets
via: AmazonI love the look of these hanging metal baskets for fruit and vegetables. Think of the counter space it would save you if you use these instead! They are easy to clean and come in two different colors (The copper is pictured here. Chrome is your other choice.) This hanging basket gives off a real farmhouse vibe, and honestly, that is all I am going for in my life.
This Bench Scraper
via: AmazonOne of my biggest pet peeves about chopping veggies or other ingredients for a meal is how annoying it is to then transfer them from the cutting board to the cooking receptacle. This will all be made much easier once I have a bench scraper. Seriously, pretty much any time I’m cooking, I think, “Man, this would be so much better if I had a bench scraper."
This Cup Warmer
via: AmazonThis is the perfect little gift for someone who just started a new job! Coffee gets so cold when it just sits at your desk all day and you are running around trying to get stuff done. It is basically a tiny little hot plate that will keep your coffee or tea warm long after you have forgotten about it and then remembered it again and then got sad because it's all cold. Now that last part won't happen anymore!
