Some—or many depending who you ask—home items are wants…others are needs! And these 37 finds from Amazon Canada definitely fall into the need category. At least they do in my opinion. I have a strong feeling you’ll agree with me on that though. From food containers to pillows and even hangers, we got all the bases covered. Just when you think you have everything you could possibly require, you’ll soon realize there’s something still missing.
Some of these home items you don’t even know you need! But, once we introduce you to them, you’ll wonder how you lived so long without them. And the news gets better… because you can get them all from Amazon, you know you’ll be getting a great price! The house itself cost enough, there’s no need to break the bank further.

The Perfect Dinnerware Set
You literally cannot go wrong with these dishes from Amazon. Some may call them plain but I prefer to say they’re simple. When it comes to dinnerware, I think simple is better anyway. Not to mention they’re lightweight and very durable.
Much Better Than Tap Water
The only snobbish thing about me is that I hate drinking tap water. It tastes awful to me. We all have our weird quirks and this is mine. Without a Brita to filter my water, I’d probably be severely dehydrated right now.
Towels Fit for a Spa
You need these towels ASAP. They’re the best ones I’ve ever used. They come in a set of different sizes, which is super useful. Plus, they’re soft and plush. I’ve put them through the wash countless times and the edges haven’t even frayed a bit!
Keep Your Snacks Fresh
I’m a huge snack fiend. I can’t go more than a few hours without one. So naturally, my pantry is stacked! To keep all the goodies fresh, I store them in these containers. They save space since there are no bags of air and boxes taking up room and my pantry also looks perfectly organized.
Turn Bread into Toast
I can’t imagine making breakfast without a toaster. It just wouldn’t work for me. I like my toast well…toasted! But there’s no need to go overboard with a four-slice one, this one is perfect. Not too big but gets the job done.

Get That Extra Shelf Space You Wanted
We can all use extra shelf space here and there. It’s nice to have them to put photos, plants and small knickknacks on display. It’s also practical when you need more storage space in an office or bathroom…ESPECIALLY in a bathroom with so many hair and skin products!
Prevent Clogged Drains
Trust me when I say it’s MUCH more cost-effective to get a drain cover than it is to have to unclog your pipes later down the road. That, my friend, will cost you a pretty penny. Just save yourself the hassle and be proactive now.
Make Room for More Shoes
Who knew that when you organize your shoes properly on a shoe rack, you’ll actually end up with more space? It also avoids a major tripping hazard. And the shelf heights are adjustable, so your tall boots will actually fit.
Make Delicious Meals on These Baking Sheets
Cookies sheets aren’t just for cookies, folks. Although, please go ahead and make all the cookies, too. If you want to take the healthy route, you can make some great meals in them, too. Because the edges are raised, it’s perfect for sheet pan dinners like chicken and roasted veggies.
The Perfect Place to Hang Coats
I don’t have an entryway closet in my house so a wall-mounted coat rack was the way to go for me. I actually like it better anyway. No opening doors and hanging my coats on a hanger. I practically just throw my jackets on these hooks.
Avoid a Bathroom Flood
The water seemed to always escape from the tub somehow. I swear it wasn’t me! But either way, I needed to get a better shower curtain to avoid any floods. This one is a perfect size and works without needing a separate shower liner.
Get Your House Squeaky Clean
The name of this cleaning product says it all. The magic eraser really is magic! No matter how much dirt or grime, this guy is getting it all off. My house is so clean and spotless, it’s literally shining like never before.
Every Home Needs a Picture Frame
I know we all have smartphones and take photos digitally these days but there’s nothing like getting a photo printed so you can frame it. I love having a few around the house to remind me of some of my favourite moments.
The Most Lightweight Vacuum Ever
If I don’t vacuum weekly (at least), things would get real messy, real quick. I love that this one is small and lightweight. It makes it easy to maneuver and store away. It also doubles as a handheld vacuum which is so convenient for cleaning up small messes.
Organize All Your Shampoo Bottles
Anybody else have three different shampoo bottles in their shower at once? They all serve a purpose though. I can’t downsize. What I did do was put in a shower caddy. Now they all fit. There’s even room to hang a loofa and razor!
Use These Bags Over and Over Again
I’m still working on being environmentally friendly but these reusable silicone snack bags are a step in the right direction. I’m trying, ok!? These are much less wasteful than using plastic, one-use Ziplocks and in the long run, they save money, too!
Keep Your Tables in Excellent Shape
Drinks and wood tables don’t mix, which is why coasters are essential! After all, you don’t want your table ruined by a ring mark, do you? And not to worry, these ones aren’t tacky looking. They’re sleek and modern so you’ll want to use them every chance you get.
Don’t Live in the Dark
This isn’t Twilight here, we’re not vampires so you’re gonna need some light once the sun goes down. Sometimes the ceiling light is a little much though. When you just want a little ambient lighting, go for this lamp. You can even charge your phone right in its base.
Minimize Kitchen Burns
Have you ever mindlessly gone to take something out of the oven, totally forgetting that said thing is burning hot? Sounds brutal, right?! Ya well… I did that once and I learned my lesson. I won’t go near the oven without these mitts now.
You Can Put Anything in These Jars
The beauty of these jars is that you can put literally anything you want in them! I’ve used them in my kitchen as a cookie jar and also in my bathroom to hold extra cotton rounds. You could even put dog treats in them if you’re a dog mom/dad.
The Perfect Mugs for Your Morning Coffee
Everyone loves coffee…I’m assuming… or at least tea, right? Something hot? So that means everyone’s gotta have mugs! These ones fit a whole lot of coffee, which is exactly why I love them. Not to mention I’m obsessed with the pastel blue. If you’re not a fan of this colour though, you can pick from the others!
Keep Dirt Out of the House
Leave muddy boots and dirty shoes on this door mat so it isn’t dragged all though-out the house. There’s enough cleaning up to do as it is, why make it harder on ourselves? Keeping the dirt on the mat is the way to go!
These Knives Can Cut through Anything
Watch your fingers everyone because these knives are as sharp as it gets. Which is exactly what you’d want in a knife obviously. It comes with a couple different ones plus a knife block they all fit into when you’re not using them.
These Sheets Will Keep You in Bed All Day
I have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning. Everyone that knows me knows I’m not a morning person. And these sheets don’t make it any easier. I mean that in a good way though. They’re so soft and comfortable I just don’t want to leave them some days.
This Step Stool Comes in Handy
As someone who is 5’3″ there’s a bit of a struggle to reach the top shelf. But, I am a strong independent woman so as long as I have this step stool around, I can do anything a tall person can.
A Convenient Storage Solution
These storage cubes are, in my opinion, the best storage option. They fit in the standard cubicle shelves and it makes keeping things organized a lot easier since you can section things by bin. You can even label them if you want to go the extra mile.
Every Pet Owner Needs Lint Rollers
As much as we all love our pets, and trust me it’s a lot, having fur all over the couch isn’t something I’m particularly fond of. It’s an easy fix though so long as you keep a few lint rollers in the house at all times.
Keep Everything at Your Fingertips
Not only do you get extra shelf space, but it also follows you wherever you need it to with this cart! I use mine in my home office to sort through all my files (#WFHlife) but you can use it in the bathroom and kitchen too.
Become Your Own Handyman
Every homeowner knows that there’s always something that needs fixing. And just when you fix one thing, something else always seems to go. At least if you have your own tool kit you can make quick fixes. As for the major ones, leave those for the pros!
These Hangers Will make Your Closet Feel Bigger
These hangers are nice and slim, which means you can squeeze in a ton more clothes in your closet. Seriously, ditch the bulky ones! These ones also have shoulder grooves to keep your clothes from slipping off and onto the floor.
This Plant Looks Real
I’m a huge faux plant lover. Sure, in an ideal world, I’d get real plants but the reality is they’d most likely die on my watch. You see, I forget to water them so they don’t last long. This one on the other hand will remain green forever.
Keep Your Drawers from Collecting Junk
If you have a bunch of junk drawers in your house, try out these organizers. I used to shove the most random things into any drawer but since I got these trays, I’m much more organized and conscious of what I throw in there.
These Pillows Got Rid of My Neck Pain
My old pillows were awful! I’d wake up every morning with awful neck and back pain. I finally switched them out for these ones and the pain has disappeared. These ones are soft but still give the support you need.
Curl Up in This Cozy Blanket
There’s nothing I love more than a soft blanket. And this one, in particular, is uber soft! I spend a lot of time on the couch binging Netflix so it’s nice to burrito myself in it. It comes in a bunch of colours so you can get one that matches your room.
Keep the House Cool
I’d probably overheat if I didn’t have this fan! I love how small but mighty it is. That way during the day I can bring it out of the living room and at night I can have it going by my bed.
Blackout Curtains That Actually Work
In order for me to fall asleep, I need the room to be pitch black. I’ve tried a couple of other blackout curtains before landing on these ones. The others didn’t block out as much light as they said they did but these do. Now, I can sleep until noon and have absolutely no idea.
The Best Way to Store Leftovers
Some people aren’t a fan of leftovers but I am not one of those people. I practically live off of leftovers. Anytime I have extra, I put them in these food containers and pop them into the fridge. The next day, all I have to do is reheat it and enjoy it.
