A three-piece Calphalon bakeware set that comes with two cookie sheets and a cooling rack — in other words, the essentials for baking up a storm. As if the easy, nonstick surface weren’t enough to love these, perhaps the fact that they’re all dishwasher-safe, is!

A Rubbermaid two-step stepping stool to ensure you can always reach whatever your heart is set on. The sturdy design can withhold up to 225 pounds.

Price: $10.99 for a set of three

Wayfair

Promising review: “This comforter is very lightweight but that’s what I wanted, it’s very soft to the touch and comfortable. Great value for the cost. I would definitely recommend.” –Karolyn

Price: $31.74 (originally $134.99; available in three sizes and 16 colors)

11.

Wayfair

Promising review: “It’s nice. Doesn’t fit as many bags as I would like, but does the trick and looks nice and functional!” –Nia

Wayfair

Promising review: “I freed up a whole drawer with this! It’s a great product.” –Sue

Price: $28.99

15.

A Conair travel steamer so you can remove wrinkles without all the effort of a classic iron. This handheld steamer features 1,100 watts of continuous steam time to smooth your favorite garments in just minutes.


Wayfair

As someone who has never been great at ironing, I find this little handheld steamer is an absolute godsend. You just have to fill the tank with water, secure the top, and press a button to steam from about six inches away. I can usually get one or two items done before having to refill, but given how well it removes wrinkles, I don’t mind one bit. Plus, it’s so compact that it’s easy to pack in luggage and carryon alike.

Price: $32.99 (originally $36.99)

16.

A suction-cup organizer that’s great for folks with limited bathroom counter space. Simply suction cup it to your mirror and you’ll have somewhere to store your toothbrush, makeup up, comb, razor — you name it!


Wayfair

Promising review: “What a neat product! Makes for a neater and easier-to-clean countertop and the suction would hold through an earthquake! Definitely recommend, AND I’ll be ordering more than the three I already have and share them with more than just my daughter this time.” –Melanie

Price: $11.99

17.

A two-piece beach towel set so you’re always prepared for a little sun time in your backyard. The ultra-absorbent towels are 72 inches long, so they’re the perfect size to sprawl out with a good read.


Wayfair

Promising review: “Very pretty large beach towel that felt even thicker after the first washing. Wash separately or with like colors the first time bc there was a bit of lint. I am ordering a second set right after writing this review.” –Tracy

Price: $41.99 (originally $54.99; available in seven colors)

18.

A set of three Rubbermaid glass bowls that work as well for whipping up cake and brownie batter as they do for storing leftovers in the fridge. Each bowl comes with an airtight lid to ensure food stays fresh.


Wayfair

Looking to meal prep for the week? The bowls will come in handy. Hoping to cut back on your plastic consumption? These glass bowls are a worthy addition to your kitchen. Honestly, whatever the case may be, you simply can’t go wrong.

Price: $24.99 (originally $27.88) for a set of three

19.

An plastic sugar keeper to keep your brown sugar moist and delicious until you’re ready to use it. The removable design can be clicked into the lid of any OXO Pop container and is designed to keep sugar fresh.


Wayfair

As someone who loves to bake chocolate chip cookies, I find that this little addition to my Pop containers makes all the difference in the world when it’s time to grab a cup of brown sugar. It keeps it nice and soft no matter the humidity outside. Total game-changer.

Price: $10.49 (originally $13.99)

20.

A reversible duvet cover set that lets you switch up your bedding any time you want. The paisley design is hypoallergenic and features a zipper closure, so you don’t have to mess with any inconvenient buttons (you know, the ones that *always* come undone).


Wayfair

Promising review: “Super soft! Love that it has a zipper, my other duvets have buttons, which come undone while washing, resulting in a big ball of chaos! The color is bright, and beautiful! Highly recommend.” –Shelley

Price: $43.99 (originally $45.99; available in three sizes and colors)

21.

An anti-fatigue mat to make cooking and washing dishes (or even working at a standing desk) more comfortable. The padded design is made to cushion your soles in an effort to take strain off your back and, according to reviewers’ praise, it works!


Wayfair

Promising review: “Love this, love this, love this! Generous size, supper comfy, not slippery at all, stays put and looks amazing what more could you want! I get compliments on it all the time.” –Alicia

Price: $39 (originally $56.99; available in two colors)

22.

A Magic Bullet countertop blender so you can enjoy delicious smoothies without even leaving your home. The set comes with a travel cup and recipe book, which will only make you want to whip up even more nutritious drinks.


Wayfair

Promising review: “I’m enjoying all of my favorite smoothies with the help of my Magic Bullet!” –Mary

Price: $39.99 (originally $56.99)

23.

A set of three Mr. Coffee stainless-steel travel mugs to ensure you can always have a cup of joe close by. The 16-ounce mugs are designed to keep contents hot or cold for hours on end, so they’re especially great for on-the-go.


Wayfair

Price: $21.99 (originally $35.99)

25.

A soap dish that’s designed to drain directly into the sink so that you don’t have to worry about messy puddles on your counter. The convenient tray is said to actually extend the life of your bar of soap because, since it’s not sitting in a puddle of water, it won’t dissolve as quickly.


Wayfair

Promising review: “Our friend designs soaps and wanted a holder that doesn’t keep the used water. This is perfect, it drips it into the sink and allows to display the soaps!” –Vivian

Price: $18.99 (originally $20) for a set of two

26.

An expandable shelf riser to make the most of your kitchen pantry space. The four-tier shelf lets you stack spices, cans, and more without having to actually build another shelf.


Wayfair

The three pieces fit together, but if you’re working with narrow space, you can remove the additional expandable sections.

Price: $19.99

27.

An expandable shelving rack so you can optimize your cupboard space. The wire frame features a slotted design that’s sturdy enough to hold more plates, bowls, and cups in tall cabinets.


Wayfair

Promising review: “I love the light weight and flexibility of this product. Really helped me to use the space of my shallow cabinet vertically.” –Svetlana

Price: $10.99 (originally $26.99)

28.

A kitchenware divider that makes storing and using pans easier than ever. Instead of having to pull out a whole stack of pans and sifting to the one you need, this rack lets you separately store each pan for easy access whenever you need it.


Wayfair

Promising review: “I don’t know why I didn’t look into something like this sooner. I’ve always thrown all my pots, pans, and baking sheets int one big cabinet completely devoid of shelving. Every time I need something from in there, I have to brace myself for the loud clanking and clacking of digging it out. This has completely revolutionized my kitchen storage!” –Meridith

Price: $19.99 (originally $21.99)

29.

A ceramic cosmetic organizer to sort your favorite beauty and grooming products while still being able to clearly see what (and where) they are. The organizer has seven drawers, as well as a place to store lipstick on top.


Wayfair

Promising review: “I love this organizer. Its slim and the perfect size to get all your makeup and perfumes out of the way. I was really surprised with how much you can fit. I recommend this for anyone with a small space.” –Mayte

Price: $38.99 (originally $40.99)

30.

A Takeya stainless steel water bottle that works so well you’ll never want to be without it. In addition to keeping your beverage hot or cold, the design itself is sweat-proof and comes with a convenient carrying handle and built-in coaster. (Full disclosure: I have eight of them in a variety of colors and sizes and am 110% obsessed.)


Wayfair

Promising review: “Great water bottle. Our first one arrived dented but Wayfair fixed the issue. It keeps things cold for a very long time. My daughter put ice in hers before going to bed and upon waking up there was still a rattle of ice. Superb insulation.” –Jennifer

Price: $40.79 (available in five sizes and 11 colors)

31.

A set of stairs for your pet so that they can always join you on the couch and bed (so long as you’re cool with that). The top-rated stairs make it easy for small-to-medium pets to get to and from higher surfaces, which is great for pets too little to jump up or down, as well as aging pets who can’t handle the impact of jumping.


Wayfair

Promising review: “I had another set of stairs but my buddy had a bit of a jump. These are 4 inches higher and easier for him to negotiate. These are foam and harder for me to do damage stubbing my toes on at night in the dark. All in all, they are working out great.” –Mary

Price: $39.99 (originally $99.99; available in three colors)
