What is it about new gadgets and gizmos that we’re drawn to? Is it the product itself or it is simply its “newness?” For me, I think it’s a combination. I love finding new things. There’s something about being “the first” to discover something that just makes you feel like a shopping ninja. But, there’s no need to buy something new just for the sake of it being new; it really does need to fill a need or make my life easier. That’s the second part.
Luckily for you, this list is both — new things I’ve discovered (or a new way to buy them) and supreme usefulness for some task. In this list, you’ll find cloths for car detailing, accessories for an ever-so-popular tumbler, popular pet gadgets and even a few pieces of clothing. Whatever you pick, from gadgets that make traveling easier to gizmos that enhance your home life, these new releases are perfect picks for right now.

If you’re looking for a shiny and streak-free finish after detailing your car, you need these chamois cloths, affectionately dubbed “shammy” cloths because no one knows how to spell chamois. This two-pack means you can leave one in each car, and its mini size means it’s perfect for side mirrors and chrome accessories. These won’t scratch you car and can be reused hundreds of times.
Your Cup Runneth Over
Listen, I know Stanley tumblers are all the rage but I’m not going to fight someone in a store over one or pay eleventy billion dollars online to get my hands on one. Did you know you can buy them for a reasonable rate right on Amazon? Well, now you do. These come in limited colors and some have longer delivery times but if you’re #TeamStanley, you’re not going to mind.
If you’re tired of getting dirt under your fingernails, you need to get your hands on this rake hoe tiller, which is perfect for cultivating soil to prepare for planting and removing pesky weeds. I particularly love the three-in-one design of this gadget, which has all the functionality you need in one tool. Stainless steel tines make easy work of hard dirt and the ergonomic handle won’t kill your hand.
The Final Straw
Since we’re talking about Stanley tumblers, we might as well talk Stanley accessories, namely this six-pack of replacement straws that are designed to perfectly fit your favorite cup. Cold and heat resistant, this purchase comes with a cleaning brush to get rid of gunk build-up inside. (And, who wants to drink gunk?) These work as well for other tumblers as they do the coveted Stanleys.
Kitty Cage Match
Have kitty, will travel? This convenient cat carrier has a chic plaid pattern and a head-shaped ventilation hole (for your kitty’s head, not yours). Made from lightweight fabric with comfortable carrying handles, it has a built-in kitty ID card so your feline friend won’t get stopped by TSA. (I kid, I kid.) Your cat may not love being inside this, but you’ll appreciate being able to take them on the go.

Have you ever found yourself lusting over that massive pepper grinder they use at fancy Italian restaurants? This one isn’t quite so large but the end result is the same: freshly-ground pepper for all of your dishes. A clear acrylic panel at the bottom lets you know when it’s time for a refill. You can even use this for salt but maybe not at the same time, huh?
Boots And All
Look! It’s more Stanley stuff. This time, I’m back with a silicone boot that slips over the base of your beloved tumbler to prevent scraps and scratches. This protective sleeve won’t impact your ability to put it in your cupholder and it’s easy to put on and take off as you like. Choose a color that matches your cup or find something that coordinates for a fresh look.
If you’re headed out on a family vacation this summer, grab a few board or card games to tote along with you. Zen Battle is a new one for me, combining a mix of strategy, creativity and luck. Find out who’s chill, who’s hyper and who’s competitive among you (as if you don’t already know) in hours worth of fun for kids to adults.
I’ve honestly never seen a metal garden hose but the concept makes a lot of sense. Engineered with enhanced stainless steel, this bad boy offers extra strength for the hose itself, making it a worry-free experience if you have to drag your hose or it gets exposed to harsh conditions. One reviewer called it the “best hose and nozzle” he’s ever owned.
The Inside Scoop
Spring has sprung, which means you’d better be out in the yard weeding and planting and all that green thumbery. (I totally made that word up.) This trowel transplanter is perfect for moving flowers and plants and has an ergonomic handle and a titanium-coated stainless steel blade for durability. You can even use this to scoop fertilizer or mix soil and compost.
Don’t Bug Me
I hate the thought of zapping mosquitos and other flying pests … until they won’t leave me alone. Bug season is right around the corner, which means you need this outdoor zapper that’s waterproof, rechargeable and has a built-in solar light for convenience. This unit offers more than 2,000 square feet of protection from things that want to suck your blood … minus vampires. You’re on your own on that one.
The first iteration of MyPillow was popular but there’s always room for improvement, no? MyPillow 2.0 has brand-new temperature-regulating technology that keeps you comfortable all night long. This pillow is available in two sizes (king and queen) and has a patented adjustable fill to keep your neck in alignment. You know those mornings you wake up and everything hurts? You’re probably over the age of 40 or maybe you just need a new pillow.
The Daily Grind
I enjoy matching sets: Measuring cups, the Great Lakes, the seven dwarfs. You know, coordinating things? This salt and pepper grinder set is another, a more comprehensive pair than the singular pepper mill a few products up. (But, hey, if you only need the pepper grinder, do your thing.) These are ceramic, refillable and let you adjust the grind to your liking, from coarse to fine.
How Have You Bin?
I just went through a move (which sucked) and bought my weight in organizer bins like these (which did not suck). These come in varying sizes and while they say they’re for the refrigerator, they work just as well in the pantry, the office or even the laundry room. Four different sizes mean you can organize everything, from pens and pencils to cans of soda.
You Knee-d These
Raise your hand if you woke up this morning and your knees randomly hurt — my hand is up. I have nothing to attribute it to except the aging process … and I’d like to turn in my adult card, please. These supportive knee pads are great for everything from cleaning to gardening and all tasks in between. Gel padding means maximum comfort and the adjustable straps keep everything in place.
On The Dot
I don’t know if I’m proud or embarrassed that I frequently buy clothes from the same place I buy weed killer and kitchen gadgets, but here we are. This v-neck top is ideal for summer with Swiss dot puff sleeves and a loose long-length fit. Throw it on with pants for work or dress it down with jeans on the weekends.
Let Your Guard Down
This product probably deserves a warning, as in “Do not look at the customer photos unless you want to be totally grossed out.” But, I reckon the photos show that this liquid cleanse does what it says, which is to use 10 ingredients to support intestinal flora as well as your gut and gastrointestinal systems. Add a single drop to a beverage to see results, for adults or kids 12 and older.
You Have Good Jeans
According to Gen Z, skinny jeans are officially “out” and if you’re wearing them, well, you’re old. These straight-leg jeans are apparently a more suitable option with a mid-waist, raw hem and pull-on design. Available in blue or black, this material is allegedly very elastic but runs small. Thankfully, you can choose from sizes up to 4X to find your perfect fit.
Burn The Midnight Oil
Regular olive oil is sooooo yesterday. This oil dispenser has a hidden talent: it’s also an infuser so you can add things like garlic, rosemary, lemon, mint or chilis to impart new flavors to your food. The ultra-thin spout ensures zero leakage as well as a smooth pour. Snag multiples so you can infuse your oils with different flavors for lots of kitchen options.
If you know much about denim, you’ve probably heard of Judy Blues. These high-waisted ripped jeans aren’t Judy Blues but also don’t have the Judy Blues price tag. Behind the ripped patches, you’ll find flowers, tie dye, plaid and a host of other options. These come in sizes from small to 3X and lots of seasonal options so you’ll be in style no matter the weather.
Wearing knee pads like the ones a few products above may not be your jam, but perhaps the Kneely Pad is. This extra-thick kneeling pad works in a variety of situations, from gardening at home to nailing those poses in yoga class to padding your booty at the stadium. Memory foam enclosed in a protective and breathable neoprene cover delivers the best of both worlds.
Flash In The Pan
Home security is a serious matter and the Cam Pan v3 lets you pan, tilt and zoom in full 1080p HD — whether that’s outside or in the nursery. The Cam Pan doesn’t just detect movement; it locks onto it, following it wherever it goes. This gadget works quietly with 24/7 recording, color night vision, two-way audio and compatibility with both Alexa and Google.
Fido’s Having A Ball
Are you enjoying this list of new gear? While you’re shopping, consider grabbing this flying saucer ball for your best (furry) friend. Available with or without lights, this ball’s elasticity allows it to jump extra high. It’s probably not the best choice for your major chewer or toy destroyer, but little dogs and puppies will get hours of fun out of it.
Stand By Me
I really never thought I’d be a standing desk person but, as it turns out, I totally am. The only problem is that my feet can sometimes get tired. This standing desk mat offers not only padding for standing but also a movable massage ball to work out tight muscles or plantar fasciitis symptoms. Reduced strain on your feet and legs means you can use your standing desk even longer.
Lick Your Chops
Hello, my name’s Beth and I enjoy watching videos of cats high on catnip. These catnip balls are extra genius because they come on a “strip” that can be placed on the floor or mounted on the wall. The included balls are actually all different, from silvervine, which helps with oral hygiene to gall nut, which improves appetite and eliminates hairballs. See? It’s fun and useful.
Can’t Take The Heat
How many times have you had to wait your turn to use the microwave just to warm something up? With this two-tiered plate stacker, now everyone can warm their plates at the same time. Double your microwave’s capacity with this gadget that runs just $20. The unique three-legged design means you don’t have to remove it even if you’re just warming one plate.
Under Lock And Key
I’m not going to get into all the reasons you might want a refrigerator or freezer lock but, if you think you need one, this option with an easy four-digit passcode is a sure bet. With no tools or drilling required, protect small fingers from getting pinched or overly zealous dogs from snacking on your rotisserie chicken while you’re at church. Hey, I’ve seen it happen.
Take Your Vitamins
I never knew so many adults had issues with swallowing pills, but if you’re one of them, these supplement gummies are a great option. Gluten- and soy-free, with no preservatives and only one gram of added sugar, they deliver 100 percent daily value of 16 vitamins and minerals you need like vitamin C, folate and biotin. Reviewers repeatedly talked about putting these on “Subscribe & Save” for added convenience.
A Slap On The Wrist
I had to read the page — the entire page — to figure out what these wrist washbands are supposed to do and I’m still not sure I’ve got it but let me give it a go. These eliminate water running down your arms when you’re washing your face or simply splashing it with water (morning, amirite?). Choose from a variety of colors, tie-dye options and even adorable animals.
I’m always looking for easy ways to up my protein and this complete plant-based protein powder in creamy chocolate is definitely worth a try. Low in carbs and sugar, this powder is loaded with good stuff like greens and fruits, probiotics and enzymes, adaptogens, and vitamins and minerals. If chocolate’s not your thing (who even are you?), try the peanut butter, strawberry banana or vanilla cookie options.
Step To It
Life is busy and sometimes you have to get in your exercise when and where you can. This mini stepper can go nearly anywhere (work, home, backyard, hotel and more) with a 300-pound capacity, large LCD monitor and a smooth, dual-hydraulic system. Add resistance bands for a bit more tension so you can really feel the burn. This comes fully assembled for less than $70.
Hands-Free Screen Time
Do you have travel plans on the horizon? (Please, take me with you.) This universal phone mount holder works on airplanes from all major airlines to give you a hands-free viewing experience to help you pass the time. You can also use this handy gadget at the gym, while dining, or on any surface up to 1.5 inches wide. It’s a must-have travel buddy for less than $13.
To Have And To Hold
Have you figured out how to travel with makeup brushes yet? I’m 45 years old and I’m not sure I’ve nailed it. I’m going to try this silicone makeup brush holder that’s lightweight, compact, spacious and brand new to the market. Thanks to its material, it’s great for traveling because it won’t tear or break, and it can be easily washed clean with soap and water.
