Brilliant Amazon Gadgets That Will Make Your Life Easier
From simple time savers to space savers to food savers (and even a toilet seat saver), there’s something for everyone on your shopping list, including yourself. Take a look!
Just one little note, this post does use affiliate links. That means if you make a purchase through them, I get a small commission, but the price remains the same for you. Thanks!
1. Colorful Food Huggers that keep fruits & veggies fresh longer
Did you know that Americans waste 150,000 tons of food a day, much of which is fruits and veggies? I’ve sliced a lemon for tea, then gone back later for the other half only to find that it was completely dried out and gross. These colorful little Food Huggers help keep everything from sliced lemons and tomatoes to dry goods like nuts and beans fresh longer. Less waste is good for your budget and the planet! Plus, they’re BPA-free and dishwasher safe.
2. This hilarious Boogeyman egg separator is fun & handy
Sure, you can grab any old boring egg separator, but why not get one that makes you (and your kids, for sure) crack a smile every time you crack an egg? The ceramic Boogeyman makes quick and hilarious work of separating whites from yolks. It’s hand-wash only, which is the only drawback (but one I can definitely live with).
3. These Nose Vents help you AND your partner sleep better
If you’re a snorer, then you and your bed partner will thank me for telling you about these nose vents! Unlike disposable strips that fall off during the night, these medical-grade silicone vents are totally reliable and reusable. Plus, they come with an anti-bacterial case to make them last even longer.
4. Keep toes toasty with a pair of these microwavable slippers
Say so long to cold toes in the winter with these babies! They’re super soft, oh-so-cozy and perhaps best of all, microwavable. Oh, did I mention that they’re also filled with lavender, so they even smell good, too! Plus, you can even put them in the freezer to soothe aching feet in the summer.
5. Every house needs this LED Toilet Bowl Night Light
If you have boys in your house, I don’t think I have to tell you why a toilet bowl night light is a good buy! Even if you’re an all-girl family, this LED color-changing light makes your life so much easier. After all, who wants to turn on a glaring overhead light in the middle of the night when you can see by one of 16 beautiful colors?
6 This Snap N Strain Strainer saves so much space
Of all the Amazon gadgets that will make your life easier, I have to say that this simple snap-on strainer is one of my favorites. It can handle everything from small pots of single-serving soup to giant pots of spaghetti. The best part? It takes up virtually no space! It can even fit in your utensil drawer.
7. Stay dry hands-free with this Folding Umbrella Hat
Sure, it may look funny, but this hands-free folding umbrella hat is sheer genius. You’ll definitely appreciate it when you’re trying to juggle grocery bags while holding your child’s hand in the rain. When not in use, it folds up like a regular travel-sized umbrella.
8. This Bottle Emptying Kit cuts down on food waste
Remember all that food waste? How much do you think comes from things like ketchup, honey, and what not? Would it surprise you to know we toss about 35% of all our condiments? Crazy, right? This neat kit is a total game-changer! Just pop the cap on your bottles and store them upside down to get out nearly every last drop. You can use it for shampoo and other bathroom products, too.
9. If you have hair, you need a TubShroom
Is there anything grosser than realizing the water isn’t going down the drain in your shower because it’s clogged full of hair? Okay, sure, there are more disgusting things, but that definitely ranks pretty high! While the TubShroom can’t stop the hair from falling off your head, it can keep those strands from clogging up your drain. Plus, at under $13, it’s definitely cheaper than calling a plumber later!
10. Save energy and your clothes with Wool Dryer Balls
Of all the potentially harmful products that you could use in your laundry room, dryer sheets are among the worst offenders. They’re loaded with chemicals that stick to your clothes long after you’ve hung them up. Wool dryer balls, on the other hand, not only soften your clothes without chemicals, but they also help clothes dry faster. That’s good for your skin, your budget, and the environment.
11. This Premium Apple Corer works on all cored fruits
If apples play a starring role in your holiday feasts, you’ll do backflips over this super simple yet incredibly handy apple corer. It works on any fruit or veggie (even peppers). Just push it in, give it a twist, then pull it out. The best part? You don’t end up throwing away good fruit along with the core. It’s totally ergonomic, too, making it a great gift for grandma.
12. These Dust Mop Slippers make cleaning as easy as walking
Too busy to spend all day picking up those dust-bunny tumbleweeds rolling throughout your house? Pop on a pair of these dust mop slippers and clean while you walk. They also fit over the end of your regular sponge mop to get to those hard-to-reach spots high up. When they get dirty, just throw them in your washing machine.
13. Who doesn’t need a Hidden Spy Camera?
You don’t have to be James Bond to benefit from a hidden spy cam! Use it to discreetly check up on your kids, keep track of your pet from another room, or even check in on babysitters. It looks just like a cell phone charger and stores video on an SD card (not included) so you can view it whenever you want. Since it’s motion-activated, you don’t have to sift through hours of video of an empty room.
14. Mueller Austria Multi-tool slices, dices and so much more
Ever seen those infomercials with the guy screaming “it slices, it dices, and a whole lot more!” Well, that’s definitely true of this compact slicing tool! The super sharp blades quickly and easily slice through fruits & veggies. Shred carrots, peel garlic, make homemade sweet potato chips, and so much more with one compact tool. It’s definitely one of my favorite Amazon gadgets!
15. Turn your bathroom into a spa with this dreamy shower head
Turn every shower into a spa day dream come true with this fun color-changing multiple-setting shower head. Twist it to high-powered settings to work out the kinks in your shoulder after a long day or turn on the water-saving mode for an eco-friendlier shower. The LED lights are powered by the water, so you’ll never have to deal with batteries. It also makes bath time so much more fun for kids!
16. This Led flame lamp/speaker is all the romance without the hazard
Whether you’re planning a dinner for two or just want to dine by “candlelight” with the whole family, this LED flame lamp is all the charm and romance of a candle without the worry & hazards. In other words, it’s no big deal if your kids lean across the table and knock it over. Bonus, it doubles as a speaker! Cue up the mood music and the lighting!
17. Find your bliss with this inexpensive Air Wick essential oil diffuser
It’s no secret that I love aromatherapy. Essential oils are so much better for you than chemical-loaded room sprays! The problem? So many diffusers are incredibly expensive for what they do. Thankfully, that’s not the case with the Air Wick essential oil diffuser. It’s totally budget-friendly and portable.
18. Every kitchen needs at least one of these Amazon gadgets!
If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you’re missing out on a whole world of quick and easy meals! I have friends with an entire army of them, but every house needs at least one. The DUO60 is my favorite. It replaces a whopping 7 different kitchen appliances, including a pressure cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, and more.
19. This Wacaco Minipresso GR keeps you caffeinated on the go
Sure, there are a ton of Amazon gadgets that let you make regular coffee on the go, but what about those times when nothing short of a shot of espresso will do the trick? That’s where the Wacaco Minipresso saves your life. The lightweight travel-sized espresso maker uses innovated piston technology to create the perfect shot of super-caffeinated coffee. No cartridges required.
20. These Strong Magnetic Silicone Twist Ties are sheer brilliance
Forget those flimsy twisty ties that come with garbage bags. If you want to hold everything from cords to clothes to keys, grab these super strong reusable magnetic twist ties. There’s not a single house in the world that wouldn’t benefit from at least one 10-pack of these Amazon gadgets, so grab them for stockings and Secret Santa gifts, too.
21. This Magic-Stone Grill Cleaner Scrub is a must for BBQ lovers
I’ve seen a lot of nifty grilling tools, but this one has to be my favorite. It’s ingenious, with those little grooves that hug the slats in the grate. So much simpler to use than a brush, and it’s totally non-toxic & eco-friendly.
Every one of these Amazon gadgets will make your life so much easier! The absolute best part? They’re all super affordable.
