The following list of products is a compilation of the best things I've found on Amazon. Everything on here is the most interesting, most useful, most inventive, or just downright most fun things I have every added to my cart (or wishlist!).

Never use disposable utensils again with this portable stainless steel tableware setYou can take this handy stainless steel flatware set with you anywhere -- camping, traveling, or just to the office for those working lunches. The bundle comes with knife, fork, spoon, chopsticks, two straws (one bent, one straight) and a straw-cleaning brush. Everything is made of lightweight food-grade stainless steel (in your choice of several cool colors) and comes with a small canvas carrying case. A lot of reusable flatware sets are made of bamboo, which is a great option, but if you're someone who prefers a real silverware feel, these are a great eco-friendly alternative. Buyers are crazy about this set, giving it an average 4.8 out of more than 800 ratings.
These Are Simply the Best Mechanical Pencils You Can BuyRecommended by Wirecutter and thousands of Amazon customers, the Pentel GraphGear 1000 Mechanical Pencil is well-designed, affordable, and durable. Loyal customers praise it for being comfortable, well-weighted, and a great value.
Add dazzle to the patio with solar lamps that emit a peacock feather patternIt's a warm summer evening. The sun has just set and the solar lanterns that line your patio have come on, projecting a beautiful peacock feather pattern on the ground beneath them. The worries of the day disappear as you lose yourself in the moment. Surrounded by warm light, you sip your wine and listen to the crickets chirp.
This Eye Cream That Can Help Reduce PuffinessThe worst part of my morning is waking up with puffy eyes — but conversely, the best part is getting rid of them with this soothing eye cream. Not only does it help get rid of puffiness, but the tri-peptide blend also works to help firm up wrinkled skin. Dab it gently underneath your eyes, and its matte finish means you won't have to walk around looking glossy.
This Camo SweatshirtThis camo sweatshirt is a cozy outfit maker and so comfortable. I like that it comes in a few unexpected colors so I can snag more than one!
This Water Mat for DIY Sensory PlayThere are two parts kids will enjoy about this water mat. First, they put it together it by inflating the mat, soaking the water beads, and putting the beads and sea creatures inside. Then, kids can poke and prod the watery contents for a soothing sensory experience that stays neat and contained.
Buyers LOVE this cordless hanging fan, and you will too!This little wonder will keep you cool on the patio all summer long! It's small, lightweight and durable (which is why it's also a great job site fan), and you can use it with or without a cord. (Just buy the power cord or cordless battery pack separately.) It's got variable speed control and will run for up to seven hours at the highest speed on a single battery charge! You can set it on a surface, hang it by the included hooks or mount it on a tripod. There's a reason nearly 1,400 Amazon buyers give this fan an average rating of 4.8 stars -- this little baby kicks butt!
This Cozy Sweater Jacket Is A Stylish WorkhorseReader, I have a confession - I do own this sweater jacket now because I just couldn't stop thinking about how COZY it looked! And it was worth. every. penny. It comes in a bunch of different fleecy colors and is a definite outfit-maker, just popping it over black leggings and a tee makes you look off-duty model chic with zero effort.
A Cat Tea Infuser For A Truly Adorable Sipping ExperienceMore cat cuteness in the kitchen? Bring it on. This tea infuser is a solution to those loose tea leaves I bought, but didn't actually have a plan for.
This Mini Steamer Is SO Much Better Than IroningNo matter how much I've practiced ironing (which isn't very much, TBH), I'll never be any good at it but I can get much better results with this mini steamer! It's so much easier (and more fun) to use and wrinkles disappear before your very eyes. Seems like the Internet agrees - this easily packable/storable travel steamer has almost 800 glowing reviews on Amazon!
This Set Of Underwear That's Basically Like A Second SkinBeing a grown-up lady doesn't mean you have to wear granny panties. But it also doesn't mean you should be forced to wear uncomfortable undergarments. These set of six panties are made from breathable cotton, provide full coverage, and fit so perfectly to your body that you'll probably forget you're even wearing them. I can't believe I've wasted so many years wearing the wrong type of undies!
This Bamboo Bathroom Organizer For Total Spa VibesI'm all for anything that makes my bathroom look more like a spa than a laundry dump, and this clean-lined bamboo bathroom organizer is the perfect thing to hold toiletries we reach for constantly. Its rotating tabletop design lets you access compartments on both sides and it boasts tons of space to store your makeup or bath necessities. Our medicine cabinets are currently overflowing - this would be a great addition to hold our daily products and look mighty handsome doing it!
These Jogger PantsAthleisure is my go-to for days off, and these comfy joggers look good and feel even better.
A Men's Romper That Makes You Look NakedI got this naked man romper as a gag gift for my boyfriend, but he wound up loving it so much he wears it around the house all the time — so you could say the gift backfired just a tad bit. It's perfect for theme parties or simply grossing out your girlfriend in the middle of the workweek, and several reviewers commented about how it fits true-to-size.
This Screen Magnifier That Turns Your Smartphone Into A Movie TheaterI tend to watch a lot of shows, movies, and YouTube videos on my phone over my lunch break, and it can be a fairly underwhelming experience to watch an episode of Game of Thrones on a tiny cellphone screen. This screen magnifier makes your display two to three times bigger and can be used with pretty much any type of smartphone.
These Popular Leggings That I Wear Every. Single. DayI'm going to be completely honest with you right now: I own three pairs of these leggings. And I've thought about buying more. I want one for every day of the week. I have an 8-month-old baby, so comfort is my top priority. Not only are these incredibly comfortable, but they also make me look surprisingly polished even when I've only gotten four hours of sleep.
This Liquid Lipstick Lasts Basically ForeverThis Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick comes in a jillion colors and lasts just as long as the expensive versions, for a quarter of the price! It goes on smooth, won't leave your lips dry and flaky, and lasts up to 16 hours. The reviewer pics are so gorgeous I can't even. If you're looking for lip color that lasts, meet your match!
This Antibacterial Kitchen Rug To Soften The Kitchen FloorI love the idea of a runner rug in the kitchen, but they end up covered in spilled food and god knows what else. This antibacterial kitchen rug is made from easy-to-clean 100% nylon, so it resists bacteria from raw meat juice spills and stains of all kinds. It comes in a bunch of sizes and pretty colors, my favorite is the geometric gray runner pictured above.
This Expandable Pan Rack Custom-Fits Your SpaceIf you're just starting out your cookware collection, or want to customize your storage, this adjustable pan rack is a smart buy to get exactly the configuration you need to fit your space. It's a pain in the butt when you need the pan that's on the bottom of a pile of cookware, so I love the idea of horizontal storage that lets you easily grab what you need without rearranging the whole cabinet. It expands to fit seven pans and has a full five-stars across the board, amazing!
This Breezy Tank TopThis flowy tank top comes in a bunch of colors and is so easy to wear since you can dress it up or down. The price is amazing, too.
This Deep Clean Brush SetPerfect for stubborn spots like stovetops, fixtures, and grout lines! This deep clean brush duo sets you up for cleaning success.
This Vitamin C Serum Works WondersIf you need to clear up uneven skin tone or spots in a hurry, this Vitamin C serum is what you need. It contains the same ingredients as a fancy-pants version that costs over $150! The before and after photos are mind-blowing, and it has over 2,000 great reviews.
This Compact Plug-in Air Sanitizer Cleans Your Air With Zero FootprintIt kills germs, mold, freshens air, and wipes out odors, all while staying nice and small on your wall.
A Cat Statue That Will Send Your Gnomes Running In FearIf garden gnomes are not so much your aesthetic, this statue of a cat attempting to snack on them may be the thing to put amongst your plants instead.
This Soft Shag RugThis shag rug is so soft and plush but still affordable, so it's great if you have pets or kids (and you have to replace it more often).
This Down Alternative Comforter That Is So, So ComfyI truly can't believe that this comforter costs less than $30 because it is the most luxurious bedding I've ever slept under in my life. It has loops in all four corners and all four sides so you can easily tie it into any duvet cover. I've had mine for about 6 months and none of the filling has become bunched up or clumpy, even after several launderings — in the washer! Because it's machine washable.
These Little Succulent PlantsThese little live succulents add life to our space and more importantly, are hard to kill! Just pop them in the mini planters above and voilà, instant decor.
These Dual-Sided Measuring Spoons Stick TogetherAll of my current measuring spoons are on one of those rings which keeps them together but I'm too lazy to remove the one I want to use, so they all get dirty in the process. These magnetic measuring spoons are so much smarter since they still stay together but can easily be separated with one hand if you're other one's all slimy with raw chicken juice or caked in dough. Plus it comes with a free leveler so you don't accidentally over-season whatever you're cookin' up.
These Acne Patches Have MicroneedlesThese futuristic acne patches zap zits fast since they have microneedles that allow the acne-fighting ingredients to get under your skin to target the problem. Since it gets down beneath your skin, it does what surface-level treatments can't, reducing the healing time and clearing up skin quickly.
Fill this whiskey barrel planter with colorful flowers that make your outdoor space invitingI love the rustic beauty of this medium-sized planter with a distressed oak finish and antique pewter colored bands. It's just calling-out to be filled with colorful flowers and displayed on the patio or in the garden. It's got drainage holes for outdoor use, is weather-resistant and durable -- and the price simply can't be beat!
