I’m showing my age here, but there used to be a commercial on television with a jingle that proclaimed, “Double your pleasure, double your fun,” and if that isn’t the perfect explanation of this list of Amazon products, I don’t know what is. If you’ve ever liked something so much that you considered buying a backup or an extra (or actually did), you’re going to be the perfect fit for these 37 items.
Some of these double purchases make complete sense, like the hair ties in slot No. 1 or the doughnuts a few positions down. (I mean, you’re going to eat them all and will clearly need more.) Others of these may seem silly to you — “Why do I need two CrunchCups?” Well, obviously, because one of them is going to be dirty occasionally, duh. If you’re buying some of these for the first time, you’ll soon discover why this list earned its title. But, if you’ve already snagged some of these deals and are coming back for more, you already know: Two buys are better than one.
We hope you find these products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We are a participant in the Amazon affiliate program, and Brainjolt may receive a share of sales from links on this page. Prices on Amazon fluctuate so anything mentioned below might change as soon we publish it!

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
If you have hair long enough to be put up, buying hair ties is a lifelong ordeal. They’re super easy to lose, misplace or use until they fall apart, aren’t they? These coil ties from Kitsch come in sets of four and color combos from transparent to “ballet,” a collection of ombre pink shades. This style of hair tie is loved by many because it eliminates ponytail “bumps” and hair headaches.

Here’s what reviewers said, “Received my 75inches Amazon fire omini TV today and my first impression is absolutely fantastic….I have watched so far SDR and HDR 4k contents and performance is absolutely amazing out of box settings.”
Where Have You Bin?
If there’s one thing I could buy over and over again, it’s storage bins. These refrigerator organizer bins come in a set of six and are great for keeping everything from your eggs to your beverages corralled into neat compartments. Made of durable, shatterproof, and BPA-free plastic, this set includes two wide bins for storing meat, produce, or condiments; two narrow bins for small cans or snacks; an egg holder and a drink holder that accommodates nine standard soda cans.
Get a Boost from Natural Ingredients
I have always been a big fan of energy drinks, but am less-than-thrilled about the ridiculous amount of sugar and chemicals they tend to include. Enter these Odyssey Elixir sparkling drinks, which give me a major boost without the unpronounceable ingredients. Bonus: they taste AMAZING.
What’s On The Menu?
Tired of always being asked, “What’s for dinner?” Let this dry-erase menu board do the talking. This comes in a large size with magnets for affixing to your refrigerator and has space for the day’s dinner plus a grocery list and extra notes. This even comes with the neon liquid chalk markers so it’s ready to use right out of the box.
Here’s The Dirt
Did you ever think you’d buy something called Joyful Dirt? That’s a resounding no for me and not just because I don’t have a green thumb to speak of. This little shaker of all-purpose plant food is a genius solution for reviving plants or increasing foliage and works for both indoor and outdoor plants. This one is safe to have around pets and kiddos, too.
I Can See Your Halo
There’s no shortage of wearables out there in the marketplace and Amazon got into the game with its Halo band, which measures how you move, sleep, and sound. The swim-proof band includes access to basic features like steps, heart rate, sleep time, and sleep tracking, and a monthly membership at just $3.99 gives you a full suite of tools, features, workouts, and programs.
If you’ve reached the age where a heating pad sounds like a good time, let me welcome you to the “everything hurts” club. I never understood why my grandmother kept a heating pad within reach until the past year or so. This heating pad has both moist and dry heat options in a large 12-in. by 24-in. size. Auto shut-off is a great additional feature.
Develop A Complex
I’m fortunate to have good genes, but I do sometimes wish I had taken more interest in skincare before I hit 40. In the “it’s never too late” file, you’ll find me grabbing products like this peptide complex serum, which boasts aloe and hyaluronic acid to smooth away wrinkles and improve elasticity for a youthful glow. From one reviewer: “Excellent product and affordable. Easy to apply, instant results without the high prices of expensive name brands.” I’m sold.
Your Body Buddy
You don’t have to be pregnant or have just given birth to appreciate the comfort that comes from using a full-body pillow. Let me tell you, I purchased one a few weeks back and I’ve had some of the best sleep of my life ever since. This one is filled with memory foam and is equipped with an extra-breathable cover to keep you cool.
Wrap It Up
I have probably a half-dozen of these hair towels and I regret nothing. It’s great to have an extra when one is wet or in the hamper. These towels, in particular, do a great job of drying my hair quickly while staying in place thanks to the twisty action and button to secure the end. I’ve found these to be particularly helpful at eliminating static and frizz that wavy or curly hair seems prone to.
Do-Nut Pass Up This Treat
I don’t think I need to explain why you’re going to want to buy more than one of these, but let me try: Ahem! Chocolate. Convinced? These protein doughnuts are completely guilt-free since they’re low-carb, low-calorie and low-sugar, yet surprisingly moist for a protein treat. One reviewer said, “Delicious and macro-friendly donut!” It’s a modern miracle in an individually-wrapped package.
Brush It Off
I can plainly remember tears as a kid when I was sitting and trying to get my tangled wad of hair brushed out. I’ve grown out of that phase (fortunately) but there are also better hair tools on the market these days. This detangling brush is one of them. Thicker, long bristles are easier on hair and the long, ergonomic handle follows the shape of your head for complete comfort.
Tell me this isn’t the most brilliant invention in recent memory! The CrunchCup lets you take your breakfast on the go, without the soggy cereal. Each cup has its own hole so that the cereal and milk don’t meet until they hit your mouth. So, you can “drink” your cereal with one hand on the go without having to use a spoon. Everybody on my list is getting one of these for Christmas.
Popcorn is serious business to me. I have a whole routine for it when I go to the movie theater and I even have a popcorn machine at my house. These silicone popcorn poppers have so many great features like a silicone body that spreads heat evenly, convenient built-in handles, and a collapsible design so it doesn’t take a ton of space to store.
Tackle Your Trigger Points
I’ll be honest, when this first arrived at my house, I was like, “Yeah, O.K., sure this works.” It’s this weird candy cane-shaped thing with knobs and hooks. But, you know what? It actually does work. Dubbed a neck and back massager, this contraption has an intuitive ergonomic design and works on various spots on the body. It comes with a user guide that details all the ways it can be used.
Have Phone, Will Travel
Most of us can’t handle being away from our smartphones for too long, even if it’s to get outside for some fresh air. This phone mount accommodates a variety of smartphones and works on both bicycles and motorcycles. Two metal bolts hold your phone bike mount in place without any slippage and 360-degree rotation gives you multiple viewing options.
Headphones Just For Them
Do not loan your expensive headphones or earbuds to the little goblins who inhabit your house. Just don’t do it. Instead, get them their own headphones like this option from LilGadgets. Available in a variety of colors and patterns, these over-the-ear headphones come with a microfiber carrying pouch and a detachable 48-inch nylon-covered audio cable. For less than $30, it’s a no-brainer, don’t you think?
Let’s Shelve This
If you’re like me, you’ve probably looked at, at least one corner of your house and thought, “It’s missing … something.” If you haven’t found a solution, let me offer one: This five-tier floating shelf that’s both lightweight and sturdy. It comes in great colors from natural wood finish to rustic blue that’ll match any decor. Use these in the bathroom, kitchen, or living room with endless possibilities.
Update Your Cutlery
How does one run out of cutlery? It seems like I’m always out and that’s after buying a second set to bolster my supply. These 20-piece silverware sets are great to have on-hand when you have company (or you just don’t feel like emptying the dishwasher right now). The set includes four tablespoons, four teaspoons, four dinner forks, four salad forks, and four knives in a neutral mirrored finish.
Cue These Cups
Y’all, my mom is obsessed with Silipint cups, and I really didn’t get it until I drank from one at her house. First of all, it’s the perfect size at 22 ounces. Beyond that, these are shatterproof and made of 100 percent food-grade silicone … and they just feel nice in your hand. This comes with the tumbler, lid, and straw.
Light Up The Night
You don’t have to be a runner to find this clip-on light useful. Maybe you’re grilling in the dark (like that guy in the picture) or maybe you have little dogs who need to be let out to do their business. This light has four brightness settings, is USB rechargeable, and clips easily to any clothing (or even a hat).
They’ll Be So Gel-ous
If you’ve read any of my other lists, you know I have a love of all things nail-related. This set of solid gel polishes comes in small pots and includes a nail brush for application. People who have used solid gel polish rave about it, saying it is highly pigmented, easy to use, and perfect for full coverage or accent nails.
Slip On These Spots
I was skeptical about these leopard lounge pants until I got them and it is 100 percent love. They look dressy while being casual and comfortable and they run pretty true to size. One reviewer was as pleased as I was: “I love these joggers. They are a thicker material than expected, so they are perfect for fall.” I bought the black leopard and paired it with a black tank and denim jacket.
Here’s another one of my recent “love” purchases and it’s so much better than even pictured. This bangle keyring bracelet is both chic and convenient since you can slide it over your hand and onto your wrist when your hands are otherwise full. The holographic color pictured is stunning, shiny, and sparkly without being too much. It’s also available in pink, purple and gold.
You Cam Do It
Among the many things you need to buy when a new baby is coming into your house is a camera or baby monitor … or both, if you snag this reasonably-priced pan-and-tilt baby monitor. For less than $30, this cam has a great picture and a host of other desirable features including two-way audio, sound and motion detection, night vision, and both local and cloud storage. This would also make a great tool for keeping an eye on Fido, too.
Cue The Caffeine
And, you thought caffeine was only for drinking. Ha! This caffeine eye cream perks up your skin just like your morning cup of Joe perks up your mental awareness. It has four-in-one benefits including moisturizing skin, lessening wrinkles and puffiness, and defending your undereye area from dark circles. This cream is great for all skin types as well and has skin-loving ingredients like glycolic and hyaluronic acids.
Be Careful With Your Camera
Every year, they come out with a new smartphone with a bigger, more powerful camera — or cameras, as is the case with the new iPhone 13. You protect your screen so why not your camera lens? These tempered glass protectors adhere to the cameras on the back of your phone, protecting them from scratches without sacrificing your photo quality.
It’s not time for spring cleaning, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get your closet into better shape. These storage bag organizers are a great option for storing out-of-season clothing, protecting them from dust with a zippered closure. These bags also have sturdy handles so you can move things around with ease. One bag will hold one king-sized comforter, six blankets, or 35 pieces of clothing.
You’ll Love These Fairy Much
Maybe it’s because we’re heading into the Christmas season, but these twinkling fairy lights hit me right in the feels. Available in white, warm white, solids, or multicolored, one string of these lights is 16 feet long and works with a battery pack that requires three AA batteries. Dress up your room, your cubicle, or a plant inside or out with a bit of glittering light.
Toss The Confetti
You may be so excited to see this that you don’t read this box and I promise I won’t hold it against you. These confetti cups are just like the ones being sold by a company that rhymes with Smarlucks at an even better price. You’ll get a five-pack with lids, straws, and color-changing cups for $21. Overpriced iced coffee not included.
Watch This Steal
If you or someone you love has been pining for a new smartwatch but don’t want to spend a fortune, this smartwatch fits the bill. It’ll only set you back $30-ish dollars and has all the same features the more expensive ones have like fitness monitoring, a step tracker, music controls, text notifications, and more. You can even customize the watch’s face.
Be The Wrap Star
You’ll be the wrap star of your family with this gift wrap cutter. Sure, it’s great for the Christmas season but you’ll get plenty of use of it throughout the year as well. A durable embedded steel blade cuts smoothly while keeping your fingers safe and works on all rolls that are 2.25 inches or smaller in diameter. This purchase is a two-pack for you and a friend.
You Need To Meat This Thermometer
People always ask me, “What’s your absolute favorite Amazon purchase ever?” Friends, this is it. This smart meat thermometer has made cooking all types of protein simpler and perfect, from filet mignon to pork chops and everything in between. It is 100 percent wire-free and pairs easily with a coordinating smartphone app where you can track your food’s temperature and cooking time.
I love OXO kitchen gadgets as a general rule and this pancake batter dispenser is no exception. It features an easy-to-squeeze handle and a unique, drip-free shut-off valve for total control and can, of course, be used for more than just pancakes. (Peep those cupcakes above!) With its four-cup capacity, you can even mix your batter right in the container and then dispense seamlessly.
Fancy A Fridge?
Not all that long ago, mini-refrigerators were too expensive and too cumbersome. Now they’ve developed what they call personal fridges, which are great for chilling a few cans of soda at work or for storing beauty products on your vanity. This one comes in a host of fun colors and comes with both plugs for standard home outlets and 12V car chargers.
Under The Rug
I had a few rugs that were sliding all over my hardwood floors until I ran across these rug pad grippers in the store. Since then, of course, I’ve purchased them on Amazon and they are a lifesaver. These stick-on grippers use a technology the company calls “vacuum tech” to ensure an even, flat grip that holds for a really long time.
A Cast Iron Combo
There’s never been a better time to start cast-iron cooking and there’s never been an entry product better for getting started than this Lodge combo cooker. At first glance, it looks like a saucepan with a lid, but both pieces can be used on all cooking surfaces, grills, and campfires, as a two-piece shallow skillet and deeper Dutch oven-style pan.
I don’t know many people who actually enjoy cleaning, but tools like this Rubbermaid power scrubber could at least make it more interesting. Its oscillating head scrubs 60 times per second so you don’t have to and you can buy interchangeable brush heads and accessories to make it even better. Remove even the toughest grime with both pulse and continuous scrubbing settings.
