This Cool Mist Humidifier That's A Winter Essential
via: AmazonMy skin gets extremely dry in the winter. I live in the midwest, so for about four straight months, I'm forced to endure snow, wind, and subzero temperatures. And yet, for some reason, I continue to live here. This cool-mist humidifier at least helps to make the air within my house less dry and I wake up each morning feeling more hydrated and less like The Crypt Keeper.
This USB Fan That's Straight Out Of The Future
via: AmazonI work from home, and for the past few months, my workspace has felt very humdrum. I was wondering how to jazz it up when I stumbled upon this USB fan on Amazon. My office also tends to get very hot since it's surrounded by windows and the sun shines directly into it, so I knew this would be perfect. I bought it immediately, and it's so incredibly cool that it still distracts me from my work sometimes.
This Flameless Arc Lighter That Made Me Throw Out My Matches
via: AmazonI'm obsessed with making my home as cozy as possible, so I like to have at least one candle burning at all times.

Not only does it look straight out of a science fiction movie, but it's much safer than traditional lighters and matches due to the unique flameless design.
This Thawing Tool That Makes Me More Confident In The Kitchen
via: AmazonI've always had a phobia of defrosting meat. I get worried that I'll somehow do it wrong and give everyone I'm cooking for salmonella, which would put a pretty big damper on a dinner party. This Thaw Claw makes it foolproof. Now, if I need to defrost meat I simply place it in the sink with this handy tool on top of it and it thaws 7-times faster than traditional methods.
This Purse Light That Illuminates Your Handbag
via: AmazonMy purse is huge, messy, and constantly filled with stuff that I never use but I still feel the need to carry around everywhere I go.

This handbag light illuminates my purse so I can actually see what's in there. It's a total game-changer.
This Smart Plug That Automates Your Home
via: AmazonMy husband is obsessed with pretty much any type of technology that seems futuristic. As you might expect, this means that we own a lot of useless junk that looks cool but does practically nothing. This Smart Plug is not one of them. We just plug it into an outlet, plug a device into it that we'd like to be automated, and suddenly we can control everything in our house from our phone.
This Headphone Jack Adapter That I Recommend To Everyone
via: AmazonI was so excited when I upgraded to the new iPhone...until I realized that I couldn't charge my phone and listen to my headphones at the same time. This is especially helpful since I lost one of my air pods almost immediately after buying them. I love this thing so much that I've bought it for three of my family members who also hate this little annoyance.
This Dog Selfie Stick That's Ridiculously Clever
via: AmazonMy dog is gorgeous. Everywhere we go people compliment her on her pretty coloring. In fact, people get much more excited about her than they do about my 8-month-old son when we're out on a walk. The problem is, she's so high-energy that every photo I take of her is blurry. This dog selfie stick was basically made for my crazy pooch. I can finally document her good looks!
This Mini Crock-Pot That Upgrades Your Work Lunch
via: AmazonMy husband and I have been trying to save money lately, so he decided to stop eating lunch out every day and actually pack one.

This mini crockpot makes him actually look forward to lunchtime again and now two of his co-workers have bought one for themselves.

These headband headphones have really helped to get me motivated to get out there and hit the pavement again. They go over your ears so they stay warm and protected from the cold, and are 10-times more comfortable than traditional earbuds.
This Reusable Touchscreen Cleaner That Sends Germs Packing
via: AmazonNot that I have an infant son, I'm much more worried about germs that I used to be. I never even considered how germy my electronics were, but now, if I take a moment to actually think about all the disgusting things they come in contact with on a daily basis it's actually quite horrifying. This screen cleaner erases smudges in an instant and sanitizes in one quick step.
This DIY Video Game That Kids Will Love
via: AmazonMy nephews are 7 and 9, and they're completely obsessed with video games. So, in an effort to buy their love through gift-giving, I bought them this DIY video game kit for Christmas this year. I wasn't sure whether or not they would be too excited about it since it's not a traditional video game, but, according to my brother, it's now become the #1 most fought-over toy in their house. Sorry-not-sorry big bro!
This Oil Infuser That Makes You Look Like A Pro Chef
via: AmazonI don't feel very confident about my skills in the kitchen, so whenever I find a product that makes it look like I know what I'm doing I snatch it up. This oil infuser was one of those products, and I've used it multiple times per week ever since it arrived. I just shove some rosemary, sage, or whatever else I'm in the mood for into the bottle, fill it up with oil, let it sit overnight, and the next day I have infused oil. I LOVE this thing.
This Mini Wireless Speaker That's Oh-So Cute
via: AmazonThe other day I decided to do something I've been putting off for months: Go through my desk and throw out everything that I don't use and just takes up space.

This Phone Camera Lens Set That Upgrades Your Phone Camera
This Fun Pet Water Fountain That's Purrrfect For Your Feline Friends
via: AmazonI don't have a cat, and although I don't consider myself to be a "cat person", I have no beef with cats, and usually enjoy their company whenever I come in contact with one. My friend Stacy, on the other hand, probably prefers the company of cats to humans. She has three, and they're her furry children. I got her this cat water fountain for her birthday last year and she hasn't stopped raving about it since.
This Ultra-Slim Activity Tracker That Keeps You On Task
via: AmazonIf you're on a fitness journey like I am, you need this fitness tracker in your life.

This Phone Screen Magnifier That Supersizes Your Cellphone Screen

This screen magnifier makes it much easier to watch my favorite shows, movies, and YouTube videos while I avoid my responsibilities.
These Underwater LED Lights That Scream "PAR-TAY"
via: AmazonI'll admit it: I'm not a very skilled party-planner. When my BFF Kate asked me to be the maid-of-honor for her wedding, I was both flattered and instantly terrified. What if the bachelorette party was a huge snooze? I decided to start doing research months ahead of time so everything would be perfect. These underwater LED lights caught my eye instantly, and I knew they'd be a fun addition to a hotel hot tub. And boy, was I right. In fact, these lights are pretty much the only thing I can remember from that night...
This Wine Aerator Spout That Makes Cheap Wine Taste Expensive
via: AmazonMy husband and I have a weekly scheduled "wine night" every Friday night, and while it's fun to broaden our horizons and try new types of wine, we refuse to spend more than $15 bucks on a bottle. This wine aerator spout not only makes it easier to pour, but it aerates it at the same time, which makes it taste twice as good as it usually would.
These Neoprene Bottle Covers That Keeps Your Beer Cozy
via: AmazonLast summer, I went to a backyard BBQ party and my friend handed me a beer wearing one of these nifty bottle covers. At first, I was confused. "Is this beer wearing a wet suit?" I asked, only half-joking. It was actually a Thermal Coolie, which kept my drink icy cold throughout the entire party and helped me to remember which one was mine. I bought a set for myself the minute we got home.

This Electric Kettle That Heats Up Lightning Fast

This electric kettle heats up in about five seconds so I don't have to wait for a delicious hot beverage.
This Ultrasonic Humidifier and Essential Oil Diffuser That Looks Ultra Chic
via: AmazonI received this humidifier and essential oil diffuser at my baby shower and, at first, didn't realize how this would help me care for my baby. "It's not for him, it's for you," my mother-in-law said. It wasn't until I was completely sleep-deprived and stressed out with a 3-month-old that I realized what an amazing product it is. Now I put it in my bathroom while taking a bath in the dark whenever I need a bit of self-care. (Which is always.)
These Oven Rack Shields That Prevent Painful Burns
via: AmazonI'm extremely clumsy, and I can't tell you how many times I've horribly burned myself while taking something out of the oven. I was expressing my frustration to a friend who recommended I invest in these oven rack shield, which she then showed off to me in her own oven. I followed her advice, and now don't have to worry about scalding myself every time I cook a lasagna.

In an effort to make my days more enjoyable, my husband surprised me with this sweet little memo board, which attaches directly onto my computer screen for easy access and features a panda bear design for a pop of fun.
This Rechargeable LED Light That Freshens Up Your Work Space
via: AmazonWhen I saw that this desk lamp had nearly 1,200 glowing reviews on Amazon, I decided to see what all the fuss was about. I'm so glad I did. Not only is this lamp shaped like a darling little plant, but it also features a bright yet eye-friendly LED bulb, has three different settings, and has a flexible neck so you can pinpoint your light right where you need it.
This Dishwasher Basket That Protects Lightweight Items
via: AmazonHandwashing baby bottles takes a long, long time. But on the other hand, washing them in the dishwasher can be risky, since all the little pieces can fall down into the bottom and melt. This was how I almost burned down my house a few months ago. This dishwasher basket keeps all the little parts safe and secure. I couldn't live without it!
This Electric Wine Bottle Opener That's Sure To Impress

This Dinosaur Phone Stand That Customers Rave About
via: AmazonI've had this little dinosaur phone stand on my desk since I bought it a year ago, and it just fills me with joy every time I look at it. And I'm not the only one. It has over 1,000 positive reviews, and customers love the cute shape, sturdy construction, and ability to have your phone propped up both horizontally and vertically.
This Squirrel Tea Infuser That's Just A Little Bit Nutty
via: AmazonWhen I first gave up coffee and switched to tea, there was a period of time where everyone I knew just started buying me tea and tea-related products. They were trying to support me, but it basically just made my cramped kitchen even more cramped. This tea infuser was one of those products, and I now refuse to use any other non-squirrel-shaped infuser ever again. Totally worth the barely closing kitchen drawers!
