I like to think I’ve got good taste. It’s part of the reason my job involves recommending Amazon products; I’m pretty good at sifting through junk to find treasure. So when I say that I’m absolutely in love with the products I’ve picked for this list, I’m not kidding. These are the creme-de-la-creme, the top of the shelf, and the best of the very best that I’ve bought in the past year — so don’t be surprised if you add more than a few of these goodies to your cart.
But if you can only pick one thing? Make it the breathable underwear I decided to try out a while back. I’m not exaggerating when I say that I can’t live without them, and they’ve been a total lifesaver in hot weather. Besides — thousands of people agree with me on how amazing they are. And if you give ’em a try out yourself, I’m sure you’ll agree, too. Check out the rest of these Amazon products I purchased and couldn’t get enough of this past year.

These Artificial Plants are Impossible to Kill
If you tend to kill every houseplant you’ve ever owned (no judgments here), these artificial plants from Kitzini are the perfect solution. They look surprisingly realistic and come in a set that includes three mini succulents and gorgeous rose gold pots. Best of all? You don’t have to water them.
This Reflective Vest Keeps You Visible
Want to prevent an emergency instead of just being prepared for one? Pop on this vest every time you head out for a job, a run, or a ride. The reflective strips can be seen from over 35 feet away, and the lightweight design won’t weigh you down.

These high-tech headphones from LilGadgets are perfect for both school time and playtime. The volume-limited design makes them safe for small ears, and the built-in share port makes splitting with friends a cinch. They also feature an in-line microphone for video calls and online gameplay.
Try A New Way To Make Dinner With A Wok
My diet has been less than healthy lately (the fast food joint workers totally recognize me at this point), so I decided to try out this Wok pan as a new way to make dinner each night. So far I have been stir-frying to my heart’s content which has made things easier on me as it’s a one-pan meal. Hey, less mess for me to clean up later! It comes with a lid and bamboo spatula plus you can use it on electric, gas, or induction stoves. So, there’s no reason to not try to eat healthier.
A Mesh Caddy That’s Perfect For Bath Toys
Don’t have enough storage space in your bathroom for all those bath toys? Not a problem when you’ve got this caddy. It sticks to your tile wall using tough suction cups, while the mesh dries quickly in order to prevent mildew. Plus, it’s even completely BPA-free.
A Bartender Kit Made From Sleek Stainless Steel
Making a martini isn’t hard. You just need the right tools — like everything that comes in this bartender kit. Each order comes with a shaker, strainer, two pour spouts, and more. The best part? They’re all made from sleek stainless steel that won’t get rusty over time.
This Leather Belt That Makes a Great Gift
I bought my dad this leather belt by John William Clothing for Father’s Day this year, and he mentions it every time I see him. The Italian leather construction adds style and quality, while the double loops keep it in place. It looks incredibly expensive, so I obviously won’t be telling him how much I actually paid for it…
The Tumeric Liquid That’s Absolutely Loaded With Antioxidants
Add a few drops of this tumeric liquid to your tongue, and it can help support healthy joints, reduce inflammation, as well as alleviate pain. And don’t even think about doubting its quality — each bottle is vegan-friendly, free from GMOs, gluten, and made right here in the United States.
This Old Fashioned Cocktail Kit That I’m Obsessed With
Just add whiskey! This compact, travel-sized cocktail kit contains everything else you need to stir up six perfect old-fashioned cocktails. Perfect for plane travel or hotel rooms (or, I dunno, Tuesdays).
A Shampoo That Can Help Stimulate Hair Growth
Notice your hair has been feeling a little thinner than usual? This shampoo contains niacin and peppermint oil, which can help stimulate hair growth. But don’t take it from me — thousands of reviewers left glowing reviews. One even raved that “I have only been using Hair Surge for two weeks and already can see and feel stubble starting to fill in thinning areas. I am no longer removing massive amounts of hair from the shower drain on a daily basis!”
A Milk Frother That Creates Hardly Any Noise
Working at a near-silent level might not seem like that big of a deal, but your neighbors at the office will definitely appreciate how quiet this milk frother is. Not only is it great for adding a little luxury to your morning coffee, but you can also use it to whip everything from egg whites to cocktails.
This Inflatable Neck Support That Helps Keep Your Spine Aligned
Even though it looks like a funky travel pillow, this inflatable neck support is so much more than that. It’s soft and lightweight, making it easy to take with you in your bag — and it only takes about 15 minutes of wear to help align your spine. If your lower back has been aching lately, reviewers say it’s definitely worth a try.
Kick Snoring, Not Your Partner, Out Of Bed!
I love my partner with all my heart, but I will make him sleep on the couch if his snoring gets too loud. I know that sounds evil, but I need my beauty sleep too! So, in an effort to stay happily married, we got this anti-snoring mouthpiece that positions his jaw forward to widen its airway and reduce the loud snoring noise. It’s been a game changer. We also got this nasal dilator for the nights he doesn’t feel like wearing a retainer. Now he has no excuse not to cuddle me every night, muahaha!
My Kids Can’t Kill My Vibe With These Ear Plugs
Working from home with my three toddlers has not been easy. I keep them entertained with toys but they’re loud so it’s hard for me to concentrate on my work. That’s why I got these reusable silicone ear plugs. They are specifically designed to eliminate distracting, overwhelming noises without removing sound completely so I can focus but still hear my kids call for me if they need me.
Bed Sheets With The Deepest Pockets Ever!
So, I came across this a few months ago and I just had to try them out as my mattress isn’t a normal one. It’s got the extra pillow top part to it plus I use a memory foam topper. I like my mattress extra comfy when I am laying down! When I found these bed sheets with extra deep pockets, I had to try them out as I am tired of my fitted sheet popping off in the middle of the night and waking me up. So, if you are in the same boat, you may want to get them too!
These Vitamin Drops That Are Chock-Full Of D3 And K2
The best part about these vitamin droppers isn’t even that they’re ultra-potent — it’s that they’re way easier to swallow than pills. They’re also made without any preservatives or animal products. Plus, each order comes with bottles of vitamin D3, K2, and MK7, which provide support for everything from your bones to your liver.
Wooden Crates That Make Storing Your Things A Breeze
Storing extra blankets, pillows or other miscellaneous things can become a pain when you aren’t sure what is in each container. That’s why I am loving these wooden crates. They are large enough to hold all my extra blankets if I want, but I can also easily pick them up with their rope handles if I need to move them. The best part is it has a chalkboard on the side so you can label them (or in my case draw what it is inside).
Add A Little Green To Your Home With This Plant Stand
Don’t have any shelf space for some plants? Just grab this stand. The height is adjustable, while the pot is made out of tough fiberglass that can handle the occasional tumble. And even though it might not look sturdy in the photo, trust me — it can hold up to 200 pounds. I think it can handle your plant, too.
This Brush That’s Perfect For Eyeliner
It’s way, way easier to draw winged tips when you’re using an angled brush — just like this one. The bristles are hypoallergenic, while the bent tip makes it easy to see around your lid. And unlike some brushes, this one is 100% cruelty-free.
This Gel Eyeliner That Glides Onto Your Lids
Speaking of eyeliner, it’s time to throw out that little bottle or pencil you got from the drugstore — upgrade to this gel version instead. I like it because it glides onto my lids, and I can smudge it up if I want a smokier look. Choose from more than 15 colors, including a gorgeous shade of green.
This Rotating Organizer For Your Vanity
I took a chance on this little rotating organizer, and I’m glad I did. Even though it only has a few dozen reviews, they’re all glowing about how it’s a chic alternative to those bulky makeup organizers. My favorite part about it? It’s the perfect spot to keep all my skincare masks, serums, and more.
This Serum That Can Help Brighten Your Skin
Just give your face a few drops of this vitamin C serum every morning, and it can help brighten your complexion — all while helping to fade the appearance of hyperpigmentation. It can also help fade acne scars, and this bottle, in particular, even contains hyaluronic acid to help lock moisture into dry skin.
These Clog Busters That Are Easy To Use
All I had to do was pour the powder packet down my drain — that alone was effective enough to unclog my bathtub. But if you’ve got a real stubborn blockage? These clog busters also come with snake tools to help you pull out built-up hair and grime. Plus, they’re safe for all types of septic systems and pipes.
This Plate Organizer That Fits Into Cabinets
I have this organizer in one of my cabinets. Not only is it made from tough steel, but it’s sturdy enough to hold those extra-thick plates that have some real weight to them. And if you don’t need to store plates? It also works great with baking trays, lids, and more.
This Nail Polish RemoverThat Works On Gel
When I’m feeling impatient and want to get rid of my gel nails right now, I’ll reach for this bottle of polish remover. This isn’t the stuff you’ll find in your common drugstore — it contains 100% acetone, which is the only thing powerful enough to remove shellac and gel. Just moisten a cotton ball as they do at the salon, and your nails will be free in minutes.
This Underwear Is A Must-Have For Hot Summer Months
These thongs are the most breathable, lightweight, and comfortable underwear I’ve ever owned — period. In fact, they’re the only underwear I’m willing to wear when it’s really hot outside, as they’re also really great at wicking away sweat. If there’s one thing you grab off this list, make it a pack of these.
The Bins That Help Your Fridge Stay Organized
I went on a cleaning spree a while ago, and these bins were part of my effort to get my fridge looking neat and tidy. The handles make it easy to pull them out, while the drainage tray on the bottom of each keeps your produce away from drippings. The best part? They make my fridge look plain good.
The System That Cleans Your Toilet For You
I’m always looking for stuff that’ll make my life easier — like this toilet cleaning system. It hooks into your toilet’s water tank so that every flush is injected with bleach, helping keep your bowl clean. Plus, each order comes with enough refills for up to three months.
Upgrade Your Kitchen With These Sliding Drawers
Finally tired of digging into the back of your cabinets for that one thing? It’s time to upgrade your kitchen with these sliding drawers. Installation is simple, as all you need is a drill — though I was even able to do it with a simple screwdriver. And unlike some drawers, these ones glide back and forth like warm butter.
These Blue Apples That Help Keep Your Greens Fresh
As part of my kitchen clean-up, I added these little blue apples to those produce bins I showed you earlier. Now my greens last for way longer — which means I can still order $30 pad thai twice a week, but without having to feel guilty about all my spinach wilting. Each one will even work for up to three months, and each order comes with refills!
This Magnetic Calendar To Help You Keep Track Of Your Life
I’m sure your schedule is just as hectic as mine, which means this magnetic calendar is definitely one of the must-have items on this list. Not only does it come with an extra “To-Do” list, but the premium whiteboard surface doesn’t absorb stains — even when you leave ink sitting on it for a full month.
The Chic Patio Light That’s Powered By The Sun
I bought this light as part of a cute centerpiece on my outdoor dining table — and now I can totally see why it’s got thousands of positive reviews. Just leave it set to “On,” and the solar panel on the top will absorb light to keep it glowing all night long. Plus, you can even use the handle to hang it up if you want.
These Cotton Rounds You Can Use Over And Over
Made from 100% organic bamboo cotton, these rounds are perfect for removing makeup and washing your face. Both sides are soft, which makes them safe to use on the delicate skin underneath your eyes. My favorite part about them? Each order comes with a drawstring bag so that you can keep them packaged together in the wash.
Everybody Needs At Least One Reusable Water Bottle
Drinking out of plastic water bottles is a total waste — whereas this bottle bottle isn’t just reusable, it’s also insulated. Cold drinks will stay chilled for up to 24 hours, while hot soups (or even tea) will stay warm for up to 12. And since it’s made from stainless steel, don’t even think about it breaking.
These Peels Make Your Feet Oh-So Smooth
Got flaking, cracked feet? Just give ’em a soak in these peels — the outer layer of skin on your feet will begin to peel away, revealing baby-soft feet after about two weeks. I like to use them whenever I’m trying to save a few dollars on a pedicure.
This Terrarium That’s Perfect For Propagating Plants
Some plants will begin to grow roots when you place their stems in water — and this terrarium gives you a chic place to keep them until they’re ready to be planted. It’s great for multiplying your herbs without having to spend money at the store, and the frame is even made from real wood.
The Plant Food You Can Use With Any Plant
Whether you’ve got wilting roses or lackluster tomatoes in your garden, this plant food can help boost them back to health. You can shake it directly on top of the dirt, or even mix it in while watering. “My houseplants are all loving it,” raved one reviewer. “It’s gentle enough to use every time you water them if you water them properly.”
A Water Bottle That’s Made For Dogs
Just fill this dog water bottle up, then give it a squeeze to send all that water flowing into the built-in dish. It’s easier for your dogs to drink from than cupping your hands — and it ensures they get more water while they’re at it. Plus, all parts detach for easy cleaning.
This Seat Cover That Saves Your Upholstery From Pets
You don’t have to put up with scratched leather, or even rampant dog hair in your car — just lay this cover down over the backseat. It’ll keep the upholstery protected from scratches, all while giving your pup a comfy place to rest. But if you were to ask my dog? He’d talk about how he likes that it keeps him from falling down into the foot space in front of the seats.
