Shopping online can be hit or miss. You order a toaster off a questionable page, and three weeks later a box of empty toilet paper rolls arrives at your front door. If you’re wondering? Yes, that has literally happened to me — that’s what I get for not vetting the site beforehand.

But when you’re shopping on Amazon, you always know exactly what you’re getting. You order a toaster, you get a toaster. You order a box of empty toilet paper rolls — you get the idea (and the rolls). And because I’m a bit of an expert when it comes to finding the latest and greatest on Amazon, I’ve prepared this list of some of the best finds I’ve stumbled across. Some are fun, all of them are useful, and none of them will send your bank account into a tailspin.

We hope you find these handy products as awesome as we do. Just an FYI: We participate in affiliate programs and may get a share of the revenue from your purchase.

1. The Tiny Keyring Tool That Can Do So Much

Never judge a tool by its size — especially not this little one that fits onto your keyring. With its unique serrated edge, you can use it as a screwdriver, bottle opener, wire bender, or even as an open wrench. And since it’s made from tough stainless steel, there’s zero risk of it rusting over time.

2. A Lighter That Won’t Go Out In The Wind

This isn’t your average lighter. Not only is it completely flameless, but the plasma arc it generates is also windproof. That means no awkward hand cupping when a breeze rolls through — and since it’s also rechargeable, you can simply plug it into any USB port rather than purchase a new one.

3. This Outlet Extender With A Place To Keep Your Phone

With two USB ports located at the base, there’s no need to go hunting around for a power brick. — just plug your phone right into this outlet extender. It also features four additional plugs, as well as a built-in shelf where you can keep your phone while it charges. And with a small night light in the back, it even helps illuminate dark hallways at night.

4. A Charger That Powers Your Devices Up Wirelessly

I’m tired of constantly losing my charging cables, aren’t you? Just place your phone on top of this wireless charger instead — it’ll have it powered up in no time. The best part? It’s designed to work with any Qi-enabled phone, as well as your AirPods and Apple Watch.

5. The Stand That Props Your Phone Up For Easy Viewing

Admit it — you’ve gathered a pile of books (or whatever else) to try and prop your phone up in the kitchen. While that’ll work sometimes, this stand will always keep your device held up for easy viewing, regardless of whether you’re using a smartphone or tablet. Choose from three colors: jade, black, or red.

6. A Candle That’ll Get Your Guests Talking

You know that weird smell some scissors have? What about your favorite bottle of red wine? This candle comes in both of those scents, plus a ton of other unique ones — including something called “It’s Only Frickin’ Tuesday.” But if the names haven’t got you sold, reviewers also raved about how they smell so good.

7. These Organizers Let You Stack Coffee Mugs

My coffee mugs were taking up way too much space in my cabinets, so I figured why not — I’ll give these organizers a try. And to my surprise, they work even better than I expected. They fit mugs of nearly any shape or size, and you can even squeeze the edges to adjust their diameter. Choose from three colors: black, blue, or orange.

8. A Stretcher That Can Help Alleviate Back Pain

With more than 100 raised points that dig deep into aching muscles, this back stretcher is a must-have for anyone with a tight back. You can adjust the height depending on how deep of a stretch you’re looking for — and it’s small enough that you can even keep it with you at work. Just don’t let anyone else see you using it, or they might get jealous.

9. This Hydrating Eye Stick Made With Icelandic Mineral Water

I’ve always struggled with dark circles under my eyes, but this hydrating stick has definitely helped. Not only is it made with 5% Icelandic mineral water to help soothe irritated skin, but it also helps stimulate circulation in order to ease puffiness. Just give your under eyes a few swipes — you’ll thank me later.

10. A Spray That’ll Save Your Strands From Hot Tools

You absolutely need to be spritzing your hair with heat protectant before using a curling or flat iron — and this bottle from HSI is made with argan oil that’ll help moisturize any dry strands. It’s so potent that you can also use it as a leave-in conditioner, while the color-safe formula is suitable for all types of hair.

11. The Yoga Ball That Can Handle Thousands Of Pounds

There are days where I don’t want to hit the gym, but I still want to get some sort of sweat going. Enter: this yoga ball. I like to use it for crunches, leg workouts, or even just for sitting (maybe a little more sitting than exercising.) And unlike nearly every other yoga ball out there, this one can support up to 2,200 pounds!

12. These Magic Erasers Are Thicker Than The Rest

Once every month or so, I’ll pull out one of these magic erasers and give my home a walk-through. Any scuffs, scratches, or dirt marks I see on the walls immediately get scrubbed — and since they’re magic erasers, you know whatever you’re scrubbing will easily come off. Plus, they won’t leave behind any scratches.

13. This Gadget That Sanitizes Dirty Phones

You wash your hands all the time, but when was the last time you washed your phone? Simply stick it inside this gadget, and the powerful UV light will quickly eradicate 99.99% of all bacteria and germs. Or, if your phone is already spotless, you can also use it to sanitize jewelry, coins, or anything else you can fit inside.

14. These Minimalist Running Shoes Are Ultra-Lightweight

You always want to try and pick the lightest running shoe possible — otherwise, you’re just giving yourself extra work when hitting the track. These ones are so light that it almost feels like you’re running barefoot, yet the removable arches give you some extra support where you need it. “I got these primarily for hiking,” wrote one reviewer. “They are very lightweight, they didn’t slip off while trudging through some muck, and they were still very comfortable when my feet got soaked.”

15. This Liquid Foundation Helps Minimize The Appearance Of Pores

The key to a great foundation is finding one that doesn’t leave you looking cakey, yet still gives you even, complete coverage. According to reviewers, this bottle from Maybelline is an absolute gamechanger, as it not only does all of the above, but it also blends seamlessly into oily skin. And with 40 shades to choose from, there’s one for nearly every skin tone.

16. A Cute Lil’ Shroom Light For Your Bedroom

You don’t have to like mushrooms to appreciate this shroom night light. Not only is it a cute touch to any room, but the LED bulb has a lifetime of more than 50,000 hours. And since it’s energy-efficient, you can keep it plugged in without having to worry about the impact on your utility bill.

17. This Hairspray Holds Until Your Next Shampoo

Your hair doesn’t have to go flat halfway through the night — especially when this spray is formulated for lasting hold. It’s so strong that it’ll last until your next shampoo, as well as suitable for all types of hair. Use it to spike up your tips, cement that up-do into place, or even as a light finishing touch to keep flyaways at bay.

18. A Roll Of Contact Paper That Looks Like White Marble

Consider me a total superfan when it comes to this white marble contact paper. I’ve used it to transform my boring makeup table into a sleek vanity, and I’ve even used it to update the old, outdated countertops in my kitchen. You could even use it as a backsplash behind your stove — and since it’s made from tough vinyl, it’s also water-resistant.

19. The Liquid Eyeliner That Lasts All Day Long

Ever come home to find out your eyeliner has smudged all over your lid? It’s not a pretty sight — so grab this liquid stick from Stila instead. The waterproof formula lasts all day long, while the fine applicator tip allows the color to glide onto your lids. The best part? It even comes in cool shades, including a gorgeous color named “Paradise Pink.”

20. A Duvet Insert That Won’t Bunch Up

Go and take a look at the duvet insert you’ve got right now — is it really that comfortable? If not, try out this one made from soft microfiber. The box stitching keeps the filling evenly distributed without any bunching, while the four corner tabs work to keep your duvet in place. Or, you can even use it as a standalone comforter.

21. This Stretch Mark Lotion That Reviewers Are Obsessed With

Hypoallergenic and dermatologist-approved, this lotion is formulated to help get rid of stretch marks — and reviewers are blown away by how well it genuinely works. “I obtained stretch marks due to gaining around 50 pounds in two semesters of college,” wrote one reviewer. “After months of no success I finally tried Palmer’s, and within a week and a half I noticed results!”

22. A Gel That Helps Treat, And Prevent Acne

What sets this gel apart from other acne treatments? Not only is it non-comedogenic, but it also penetrates deep into your complexion to stop blemishes from forming in the first place. It also targets any inflamed pores, helping to quickly shrink them — and one clinical study even found that it provided up to 87% reduction in acne after 12 weeks.

23. The Chalkboard You Can Put Anywhere

Slap this chalkboard contact paper wherever you want — no, really. Wherever you want. It works great on cabinet doors in trendy kitchens, or even as an accent wall for kids to draw on. You could even get creative by putting it on a cheeseboard like you see above, though personally? I have it in my pantry as a place to write down grocery lists.

24. A Lip Balm That Protects Your Pout From The Sun

If you’re looking for a great daytime lip balm, this one from Christian Dior gives your pout a natural flush of color that isn’t too overpowering. SPF 10 protection keeps your lips safe from the sun — and reviewers loved how moist it made their lips feel. One even wrote that “I’m on my third tube of this, and it is the only lip balm I’ll ever buy as long as they keep making it.”

25. These Side Tables That Double As Storage Baskets

Add style and storage to any room with these basket side tables. They’re large enough to hold blankets and pillows, yet narrow enough that they’ll fit into tight spaces. And if you’re worried about how sturdy they are? Don’t be — each one can support up to 50 pounds.

26. A Big, Fluffy Area Rug That Won’t Break The Bank

An area rug can completely change any room for the better — and this one is fluffy, trendy, and affordable. The non-slip dots on the back keep it in place while you’re walking on it. And if you’re worried about cleaning? It easily washes clean with a damp rag and some mild soap.

27. The Mesh Bags That Save Your Lingerie In The Wash

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve opened my washer, only to discover my bras have spun into a tangled mess. These mesh bags will not only keep your bras separated — they’ll also save the hooks from getting stretched out or snagged. Plus, the zippers are even rustproof.

28. A Vitamin C Serum With Extra Hyaluronic Acid

Vitamin C is great for helping to brighten your complexion, and it can even help fade any sun spots that’ve popped up. But why buy this bottle in particular? For starters, it’s been fortified with hyaluronic acid to help lock moisture into dry complexions. It can also help fade acne scars — and reviewers raved about how they were able to see a difference after just a few weeks.

29. The Blanket That Really Cools You Down

You know how tons of blankets describe themselves as “cooling,” but they’re really only lightweight? This one is the exception. Specialized fibers work to draw your body’s heat away from you, working to keep you cool on hot summer nights. I was so impressed with how well it worked, I even went and bought a second king-sized one for my bed!

30. A Pillow That’ll Help You Cool Off At Night

Since you’re upgrading your bedding, you might as well grab this pillow while you’re at it. One side is filled with cooling gel, helping you beat the heat on warm summer nights, whereas the other is regular memory foam. And since the loft isn’t too high, it works great for back, and stomach sleepers.
