I probably spend more time browsing Amazon than you do. After all, I do it as part of my job and I have a major shopping problem. Despite what our UPS man might think, I don't buy everything I see. I have wish lists and things I admire from afar and things I'm dying to try but am also a little afraid of. Here I am sharing an assortment of things I currently have my eye on that will hopefully grace my doorstep in a brown cardboard box one of these days.
We hope you find these handy products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: 22Words is a participant in the Amazon affiliate program, and may receive a share of sales from links on this page.
I'm Waiting For My Current Electric Kettle to Die So I Can Get This Stainless Steel Electric Kettle
via: AmazonI've had a few electric kettles over the years and the worst part about them is that they tend to last forever. Which means I'm stuck with my perfectly good, but non-gorgeous, plain white plastic kettle for the foreseeable future. But as soon as it bites the dust, or I justify getting a new one, I'm upgrading to this stunning Stainless Steel Electric Kettle.
Life Looks Pretty Perfect in This Hammock Chair
via: AmazonMaybe it's good that I don't own this Hammock Chair, because if I did I'd have a hard time ever not being in it. In my dream life, I'm the kind of woman who has this hammock chair and the luxury of time to use it.

I'd Like One of These Light up Stick Figure Costume Kits For Everyone in my Family

How cute is this light up costume kit? I love the idea of stick figures running around in the dark!
This Giant Wooden 4 in a Row Game Looks Like So Much Fun
via: AmazonI can't really explain why I want this 4-foot wide Giant 4 in a Row Game so much, but I do. I love it's ridiculous over-sizedness. At $165, I can't justify buying it for myself, but it would make a terrific gift for anyone you buy sort of pricey gifts for, (or for me). It also comes in in a 2 foot and 3 foot version for $65 and $89 respectively.
With a Head Full of Curly Hair, I've Long Coveted a Silk Pillowcase
via: AmazonApparently, this 100% Mulberry Silk Pillowcase would make my morning hair perfect and even my skin clearer. It seems like such an indulgence to buy for myself, but I have my eye on it and one of these days I'll decide I deserve the treat. Or maybe someone will see this and buy it for me. If you know a curly haired gal, this would make a great gift!
I'm Pretty Sure There are Two Kinds of People in This World: Those Who Have an Instant Pot, and Those Who Want One

If Left to my Own Devices, I'd Have This Banned Book Coffee Mug and So Many Others That My Cupboards Would Burst
via: AmazonThere's something about a great mug. It's the shape, how it feels in your hand when it's full of the good stuff, and, of course, the design. As a bonafide nerd, coffee fiend, and bibliophile, (and the type of person who says things like "bibliophile,") this Banned Book Coffee Mug has my name all over it.
Inverted Umbrellas Made Me Realize How Poorly Designed a Standard Umbrella is
via: AmazonI don't usually use an umbrella because they are more trouble than they're worth. Sure, you stay dry while you're out in the rain, but then you are stuck with this soaking wet nightmare that you have to carry around with you, or bring into your car with you. And there is literally no way to get into your car and close your umbrella without becoming more drenched than you would have been in just a raincoat in the first place. So, when I see these Inverted Umbrellas I am overcome with the I WANTS.

Magnetic Eyelashes are Another Thing I'm Both Curious About and a Little Afraid of
via: AmazonI don't generally wear a ton of makeup, so it might be weird for me to don extravagant eyelashes all the time, but these Magnetic Eyelashes are so tempting. Traditional false lashes require a level of dexterity that is way beyond me, but I can do magnets. The fact that they advertise these on someone with fair features like mine helps too. Oooh, I want them so bad!

I Spend A Lot of Time at my Kids' Sporting Events and I Envy The Parents Who Sit Comfortably in the Bleachers on Seats Like These Grandstand Comfort Seats
via: AmazonI never remember how terribly uncomfortable the bleachers are until I'm back on them. Even though I eye other parents' Bleacher Seats during the unending hours of meets and games, as soon as it's over I forget. If my kids knew anything, this is what they'd get me for Mother's Day.
This Racerback Tank Top with Mesh Ventilation is the Perfect Balance of Full Coverage and Cute Workout Tank

Probably Every Car on the Road Should Have an Emergency Escape Tool

Then I'm tired the next day and I don't remember to buy one.
One Cannot Talk About Middle of the Night Unlikely Emergencies Without Concluding That She Must Also Buy a Fire Escape Ladder
via: AmazonI've played out the fire scenario so many times that should it ever happen, my family will be highly impressed with how quickly I come up with the idea of tying the bed sheets into knots and using them to climb out the window. But, we'd definitely be better off not needing that quick thinking ingenuity, so this Fire Escape Ladder is on my insomniac fears shopping list.
The Pint Sized JBL Flip 4 Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker Basically Promises Outdoor Fun
via: AmazonThe latest tiny speaker from JBL is waterproof, sounds terrific, and is small enough to fit in a cup holder, or tucked into my hammock chair with me. And it's mint green like the Converse high tops I had in 5th grade.

Considering the Tangled Mess of Jewelry I Usually Travel With, I Could Really Use a Travel Jewelry Case

This HyperChiller Iced Coffee Maker Cools Down Hot Coffee 130 Degrees in 60 Seconds
via: AmazonAnyone who knows me knows that I truly, madly, deeply love coffee.

But this HyperChiller Iced Coffee Maker is a game changer! You pour in hot coffee and it magically and practically instantly cools it without diluting it at all!
These Stainless Steel Mixing Bowls Stack Together For Easy Storage, Pour, Have Handles, Have Lids... They've Got it All

At Only $10, I Kind of Want a Pair of These Classic Polarized Sunglasses in Every Color

Being Able to Change From Sitting to Standing Sounds Dreamy, So I Really Want This Adjustable Standing Desk
via: AmazonI spend a lot of time at my desk. Knowing that standing is healthier than sitting, and hoping to one day add in a desk treadmill, I once converted my desk to a standing desk with the help of decorative paint cans and a sturdy piece of wood. I stood for months, never got the treadmill, and then I was sick of standing. What I really want is a choice. This Adjustable Standing Desk looks perfect.
I Love Poppy Anything So When I Saw This Poppy Bedding Set I Fell For it Hard
via: AmazonActually, I really like all the designs in this line of Duvet Cover Sets. In my dream home, I have the poppies, the guest room is the multi wave, and I might need more kids because I can't narrow the others down to just two. Oh, wait, I don't need more kids, they just need big, clean bedrooms with two beds each so I can have more duvet sets. Ahh, dream home...
