We all spend a lot of time rushing around trying to do all of the things. Then when the time comes to buy things that can help enhance our day to day lives and make things seem less mundane it’s extra special. And I cannot stress enough how buying things from Amazon that can help make small tasks enjoyable, update a space, or organize areas of your life is the way to go.
That’s why we created this list with the life-enhancing products you need, or anyone needs, from Amazon so you can start making changes as of now. Whether you need a shelf for plants, a new kitchen knife set, or a storage container, we thought about every aspect of your life while gathering items for this list. And you won’t want to stop scrolling through it because everything listed here can have the level up your life needs and who doesn’t want that?
This Tiny, Powerful Circulator Fan Is the Perfect Summer Home Addition
At less than $20, this powerful little circulator fan is an Amazon buyer fave. Made by Honeywell, this turbo force air circulator has 3 speeds and a 90-degree pivoting head. You can feel the breeze up to 27 feet away! Set it on the table or mount it on the wall. It’ll take care of you at home or in the office.
Save Space And Stay Full With These Food Supply Tabs
Emergency food kits can be crazy expensive and tend to take up a lot of space. And while it is important to have an emergency food kit at home, you don’t need to lug it around with you while you’re out and about. Instead, opt for these survival food supply tabs. They’re created to supply the body with essential vitamins and nutrients when you don’t have access to real food. One pouch has enough to sustain one person for eight days.
Show Off Your Bloomers
This Amazon find is an inexpensive bamboo plant stand that can hold up to six of your favorite flowers or plants — indoors or out. According to the description, the installation is easy and the bamboo design is light enough to move around as you change your mind but sturdy enough to accommodate the evidence of your green thumb. Any time I can spend money on plants is a time I’m happy.
This Multitool Does Quite Literally Everything
I’m all about saving space and finding tools that have multiple purposes. Just like this multipurpose multitool! The 18-in-1 tool includes an axe, hammer, clamp, fish cleaner, mini knife, saw, hex wrenches, screwdriver, can opener, and more. Can you believe how useful that is?! I can’t.
You Pop and You Don’t Stop
There’s never a wrong time for popcorn. Repeat after me: There’s never a wrong time for popcorn. Breakfast? Sure. Lunch? Why not. Dinner? You’re a grown-up, go for it. This collapsible microwave popcorn popper makes popcorn anytime a true reality. You can make 15 cups of the stuff in just a few minutes and then fold it up and store it in a space-saving design. Please tell me you add salt and butter. You do, right?
This Thermos Keeps a Can Cold for 3 Hours
I have a problem: I love my Diet Coke to be ice-cold, but I don’t like watering it down with literal ice. The solution? This Thermos is designed to keep a can of soda cold for three hours! I also appreciate that it’s thin-walled, so it isn’t too bulky in your hand.
Make Your Own Cold Brew With This Coffee Maker
Making cold brew coffee at home has never been easier. This cold brew maker produces a week’s worth of cold brew that you can keep in your fridge and enjoy for a few days. Doesn’t get much easier than that.
This Hand-Crank/Solar-Powered NOAA Weather Radio
If you only buy one gadget from this list, this radio is the one I recommend. If the power and internet aren’t working, you’ll need a radio so you can hear reports from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). This radio can be powered by the sun or turning the crank and also works as a flashlight and phone charger. It may not be an everyday item, but when you need it you’ll be so glad you have it.
These Paper Sandwich Bags Reduce Single-Use Plastic
These Paper Sandwich Bags are not only a more environmentally friendly alternative to plastic bags, but they’re also really cute! They’re made of recyclable, sealable, grease-resistant paper, and even have a spot for writing a note. They’ve earned an amazing 4.8 out of 5-star average rating on Amazon! Here’s one 5-star review: “I want to move away from all plastic bags if I can and these are a great start. I also tried the competition and the sticky strips for closure are much handier than the stickers the others come with.”
Stow Off-Season Clothes and Linens in These Large Capacity Storage Bags
When the seasons change, I like to create space in my closet and drawers by packing away the clothes and blankets I’m not using. These Storage Bags are perfect for it. Each one measures 23.6 x 16.9 x 13.7 inches, with a two-way zipper and a transparent front so you can see what’s inside.
This six-piece titanium-plated knife set looks sophisticated and cuts like a charm
Talk about making grown life easier! You’ll be able to slice and dice all the ingredients for your home-cooked meals with this six-piece knife set. And the knives will look great in your kitchen, too. They’ve got sleek ergonomic handles and stainless steel blades with a black matte titanium coating that doesn’t chip or scratch off.

This Sleep Oxygen Monitor with App to Track Your Overnight Vitals
If you’re like me and like to monitor everything you do, from your daily steps to how you sleep, then you’ll love this sleep oxygen monitor.
It works with an App on your iPhone or Android and tracks your blood oxygen saturation levels and heart rate overnight while you sleep. It’s really interesting to compare your sleep patterns depending on what kind of day you’ve had or what you’ve had to eat or drink that night.
This Nail Holder Prevents Smashed Fingers
Whenever I go to hammer in a nail to hang pictures, I always smash my fingers in the process. Those days are gone thanks to this magnetic nail holder that keeps it in exactly the right place and your digits safe from harm. I’m totally getting one of these for my dad, who does handyman jobs around my house all the time since he suffers from the same bad aim as I do!
This Handle That Tenderizes Tough Meat
Nothing tastes better than a delicious steak, but you know what’ll make that steak taste even better? This tenderizer handle. 48 stainless steel needles pierce deep into the meat, helping to break up the tough sinews and tendons that create a chewy texture. Plus, it can even help shorten the time it takes for your steak to marinate fully.
Bag It Up
I finally got aboard the reusable grocery shopping bags train and I honestly don’t know why it took me so long. The cuteness of this six-pack of reusable bags certainly helped. Their extra-large capacity allows you to tote 50 pounds of groceries, replacing traditional shopping bags, and doing your part to help the environment. They’re also made of durable rip-stop fabric and are completely waterproof.
Take Your Temperature
Touchless thermometers have been all the rage over the past 18 months and for good reason. They’re quick, reliable, and hygienic. And, let’s be honest: We all need a thermometer of some type at our homes for those days when we’re feeling under the weather and wonder if we’re coming down with a bug. This one has internal memory, a big, bright LCD display, and works for babies to adults.
This Shower Caddy Is So Good High Quality
You know you’re an adult when you include a shower caddy on your Amazon must-haves list. This thing doesn’t budge, no matter how wet it gets, and it’s not ugly. It may sound shallow, but this is important. It holds a bunch of bottles without coming loose, and I love that it has notches to hold loofahs and brushes.
This Hair Waver Gives You the Perfect Beachy Waves
The fact that this thing is popular again makes me laugh. I had a hair waver just like this one when I was in 7th grade (although this one is definitely an upgrade from the 90s). It shouldn’t come as a surprise that it has made a comeback. Everything comes back around at some point. This hair waver gives you messy beach waves that are perfectly not perfect. And it’s so, so easy to use that it’s like you barely have to style your hair at all.
These Measuring Cups Have Magnetic Snaps
This is a solid, highly-rated set of measuring cups with one stand-out feature: Magnetic snaps in the handles, so they stack neatly and compactly for storage. They’re made by my favorite kitchenware brand, OXO, which has never let me down!
This Pot Strainer Prevents Unnecessary Spills
We cook a ton of pasta, so I feel like I’m always hauling the bulky colander out for draining. It takes up a lot of room and is kind of a pain to clean because pasta gets stuck in the sides. I was super excited to find this pot strainer that’s very easy to store since it’s basically flat and even easier to clean! Just hold it up to the lip of the pot and strain away!
These Sink Suds for Hotel Sink Laundry
Handy for travel, dorm rooms, or quick laundry jobs anytime, these Sink Suds packets make hand-washing clothes a heck of a lot easier. Each packet provides just enough detergent for 2-3 garments and works with any temperature of water. If you’re planning a long trip and won’t have access to a washer and dryer, these are great in a pinch.
This Senliart Flower Vase Is Brimming With Personality
Petite and whimsical, this Senliart Flower Vase looks like something you picked up at a craft fair. At 5.9 inches tall, it’s the ideal size to hold a few flowers and cheer up your bedside table, bathroom counter, or another spot in your home. It comes in four designs, so it would be especially cute to get all four and line them up on a windowsill or shelf. The ratings are really good on this little vase, with 91% of reviewers giving it five stars. One of them writes, “I purchased the vase to place in my bathroom as an accent piece on a shelf and love it. I always seem to get compliments from guests when they see it, and I love the fact that it was handmade!”
This Garlic Rocker Stops Your Hands from Getting Stinky
I love using garlic in my food, but not so much the lingering smell it leaves on my hands and under my fingernails. I use this garlic rocker to keep my hands clean and chop the garlic into a much finer mince than I could with a knife. I get great results every time and consider this to be a kitchen MVP that gets used multiple times a week.
Don’t Get Mixed Up
Countertop mixers take up a lot of space, but handheld mixers have attachments that always seem to get lost. I’ve never seen a smarter design in a handheld mixer than this one from Hamilton Beach. A snap-on storage case keeps all of your attachments within reach (read: not hanging out in the back of a cabinet where you can’t see them). It’s available in red or white.
The Bacon Bonanza for Crispy, Oven-Baked Bacon
The Bacon Bonanza is a better way to cook bacon! The set includes a copper-colored pan and specially designed rack that holds up to 18 slices of bacon at an angle. This way, the bacon cooks faster while the grease drains away. The result is crisper, lower-fat bacon. One satisfied customer calls it, “the most delicious bacon I have ever had.”
This Height Adjustable Standing Desk Gives You Flexibility While Working
Sitting in my home office all day was starting to get pretty frustrating, so I bought this adjustable standing desk from Amazon, that I found through @smallstuffemily ‘s TikTok. It has changed my whole WFH experience, by allowing me to stand part of the day… which has been great for my posture and back. The adjustable button means switching between sitting and standing is super easy.
Make Space For Coffee
Many of today’s at-home coffee makers take cups or pods, which — uh, oh — take up a ton of extra space. Don’t store those coffee pods in a kitchen cabinet or pantry; get this storage drawer holder that sits neatly under your coffee machine. The tempered glass design is chic, and the pull-out drawer allows for easy access to coffee capsules, even when you barely have one eye open.
These Travel Bottles Are So Handy
I’m in love with these handy travel bottles. I’ve been refilling them with hand sanitizer and clipping them onto my kids’ backpacks and my bag, so we always have some available. They’d be great for actual travel, too, whether you fill them with shampoo, lotion, or a little bit of your favorite foundation.
This Sink Strainer Is Much Less Gross
One of my least favorite chores besides cleaning the toilet is emptying out the food and debris from the kitchen sink strainer. I hate hate hate touching the slimy, decomposing food stuck in it! This one’s a much better option since you can just pop the food out instead of getting it out with your fingers, and it’s silicone so it’s so easy to clean.
Whatever Floats Your Boat
Pool floats are a “must” in the summer, especially if you’re over the age of 20 and tired of non-stop games of “Marco Polo.” This one is called a luxury pool longer and it’s easy to see why. It has an ergonomic reclining design, cushioned head and footrests, cup holders, and easy carry handles. All that’s missing is your favorite beverage and an unputdownable summer read.
This Oral-B Vitality Floss Action Electric Toothbrush is a Dentist Favorite
The price on this Oral-B FlossAction toothbrush is amazing! At the moment, it’s less than $30 for the electric toothbrush, plus a charger and brush head. That’s well under market price! And this brush is a game-changer. It’s got a two-minute timer to help you brush just the right amount. And it’s compatible with all the standard Oral-B replacement heads.
These Mesh Covers are Great at Keeping Bugs Off Food and Plants
These mesh food covers are perfect for covering food while eating outside. So, whether you’re having a BBQ with friends or gone for a picnic with family, your food will be protected. They also double as plant protectors, so bugs won’t destroy your flowers or vegetable garden.
Drill Down On Cleaning
I keep seeing this 38-pack of drill brush attachments and I’m not kidding — it seriously makes me want to clean all the things. The cleaning options are endless, from bathtubs to floors to upholstery and more. One reviewer said, “Best thing I’ve ever bought from Amazon,” and, hey, I don’t take those kinds of accolades lightly. Others agree it’s “worth the money” and “worked great.”
This Ice Cube Tray That Makes Frozen Diamonds
The larger the ice cube, the slower it melts — and this diamond ice cube mold makes really big cubes. The best part? It’s also flexible, making it easy to pop your diamonds out once they’ve frozen. You know what they say…diamond ice cubes are a girl’s best friend.
These Produce Bins Will Save Your Money on Groceries
I bought these produce bins a few weeks ago, and I’ve gotta admit — they’ve more than exceeded my expectations. They’ve got a removable drip tray on the bottom, which helps keep your greens high and dry away from moisture. And with handles on each bin, it’s easy to pull them in and out of the fridge.
This Omelet Maker Improves Mornings
It’s a miracle if I can get the kids to eat a measly piece of toast or a granola bar for breakfast on school mornings, then I feel guilty that they’re not properly fueled to learn and play at school all day. They love omelets but it can be a pain to make plus the dirties pans I don’t have time to clean during the morning rush. Enter this omelet maker that makes it so easy to whip up a nutritious meal, just add the ingredients and it basically makes breakfast itself!
This Fruit Infuser Bottle Helps You Drink More Water
I don’t like drinking water unless I’m working out, which is not good for my hydration levels. This cool fruit infuser water bottle helps me drink more throughout the day because it makes plain ol’ water taste a million times better! And at 32 ounces, it’s large enough that I don’t have to keep refilling every half hour, it lasts a while.
