1. A rechargeable lighter, so you c
I’m obsessed with candles, so it was a no-brainer for my husband to gift me this surprisingly super fun gadget for Christmas. It’s really simple to use and charge, and it really works! I’ll never have to buy another lighter again.
Promising review: “This is seriously the coolest device of my winter holiday. It makes lighting candles a breeze. Yes, Home Gadgets there is a weird crackling noise, but that’s a super minor annoyance. It’s a super intuitive device. Plus the lighter with the USB (included), charge for a bit, then pop it open and light ALL THE THINGS; well, candles. I don’t know how well it lights cigarettes or whatever. However, for my personal intended use, it’s awesome!” –Jee W
Get it from Amazon for $12.99.
2. A charging dock to keep your area free of pesky wires and add an extra element of style to any room.
I have this charging dock and it has been a game changer. I always had an extra-long charging cable along the side of my bed and now my room is wire-free! Even with a chunky phone case I’ve had no issues getting my phone to connect and charge seamlessly. Home Gadgets And it simply looks pretty — I have no complaints.
Get it from Rifle Paper Co. for $60 (also available in a blue floral design).
3. A Cricut Joy for anyone who loves making everyone in the family feel special with homemade cards — this gadget will take your skills to the next level!
The Cricut Joy is a lil’ cutting and writing machine that’ll help you make all kinds of cards, Home Gadgets banners, and more! My mother-in-law has one of these and is obsessed! I’ve played around with it during quarantine. Promising review: “I’ve wanted a Cricut for years but never had the money till recently. I ordered the Joy mainly cause it’s cheaper and I just don’t have the space for the larger models, and I’m so glad I did cause it is absolutely PERFECT for my needs. I mainly wanted it to make custom decals for my car and whatnot and the Joy is just right for that. I’ve made four or five already and they all turned out great. Super easy to use too, I was up and cutting within 10 minutes of opening the box.” –K. Lattanzio

4. A Google Nest you’ll love because you can use it to listen to music (kitchen dance party!? ), adjust the lights in your home, pause your TV, and ask it questions as if you have a personal assistant.
My husband was hesitant about getting a device like this in our home, but after an hour he was sold. We have it in our kitchen and *kindly* ask it to play music while we cook and eat, use it to set timers while baking, and ask it funny questions. Home Gadgets We love this lil’ gadget. We also have a Google Nest Hub by our front door so we always know what’s on each other’s calendar for the and know what time it is before heading out. We recently bought our first home and have a Google Nest Hub Max that we plan to install to control *all* the things (lights, sounds, etc) a la Disney’s Smart House.
Get it from Google for $99 (available in five colors).
5. A heated massager pillow anyone will be happy to have after a no good very bad day.
Promising review: “I just received this and I LOVE it. It adequately relieved the knots in my neck, the base of my skull, and my legs. I’m going to try my feet also. I’ve been wanting something like this for quite some time and I’m thrilled with this product. This item definitely delivers. I highly recommend it. The price for this item given the relief provided is wonderful.” –Stephanie T.
Get it from Amazon for $49.95.
6. A bidet attachment to help you cut down on the need for toilet paper and ideally avoid that unplesant moment when you find yourself on *the throne* without any TP in sight and have to embarrassingly call out to your S.O. to rescue you.
Promising review: “I bought this because I was very curious. I was initially worried the cold water would be an issue but so far it is not. Home Gadgets I am worried about the winter months though as I think the tap water may be a little cooler. This thing cleans up your butt like you just got out of shower. I wish these were in every public toilet everywhere. I won’t poop anywhere in my house except the master bath now. I am excited to poop so I can flush it and then clean up using the Tushy so I can see in the toilet how much it cleaned my butt. You will be amazed.” –Ryan
Get it from Amazon for $89.
7. An air fryer (from the makers of the INSTANT POT!! ), perfect for anyone who hasn’t always been a big fan of leftovers but wants to make the most of all their delicious homemade meals. Best of all? You can crisp up your fave foods without all that oil.
I’d been contemplating buying an air fryer for quite some time, but it wasn’t until I found myself cooking every night with my family due to COVID-19 that I finally decided it was the right time to get one. Friends of mine were raving about their new Instant Vortex Plus 6-in-1 Air Fryer, so after reading similar feedback on Amazon, I decided it looked like a winner. And it happens to be made by the same company that makes the crowd-favorite Instant Pot. I figured I would be using this appliance primarily as air air fryer, but as an added bonus, it can also roast, broil, bake, re-heat, and dehydrate food.
I’ve had this air fryer for about three weeks now, and I can honestly say it’s become the hero of my kitchen. It preheats quickly, it’s large enough to hold a good amount of food at once, it’s easy to clean, and it makes food taste crispy on the outside and moist on the inside without any oil. I’ve been using my air fryer to make vegetables just about every night and it makes them taste so good. If you’re cooking for kids, picky eaters, or you just don’t get so excited about eating vegetables, the air fryer could be perfect for you. If you like chicken, the air fryer might change your life, and I don’t mean that to be dramatic. The air fryer produces restaurant-quality chicken that tastes absurdly decadent, except there’s no oil involved in the cooking — just air. We also tried making sesame chicken in the air fryer using boneless skinless chicken thighs. The sesame chicken tasted almost identical to my favorite Chinese takeout, and it had nothing to do with my cooking skills. Thanks to the air fryer, the chicken gets so crispy. I couldn’t believe I made this at home!!”
Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

8. A Samsung TV that’ll disguise itself as an elegant picture frame when its not in use. A magical marvel in home decor and technology if you ask me.
This is the number one thing on my wish list right now — it’s so cool and I’m constantly staring at it in stores. I love that it has the ability to transform into a piece of art but also act as a room’s main source of entertainment.
Promising review: “This TV is badass! It’s more expensive, but that’s because it’s so much different than other TVs. If you hate the way normal TVs look, get one of these. It mounts flat against the wall and will look like a picture frame. The one connect box is great too. Just one cord comes down to a box you can stash somewhere that you connect all your inputs into. Home Gadgets Definitely spend the extra money to get one of the other bezel covers. It really will look like a picture on the wall.” –Chris Fulmer
Get it from Amazon for $597.99+ (available in six sizes).
9. An AeroGarden for your countertop so you can grow your own herbs to take your recipes to the next level — whether you have a green thumb or not.
Promising review: “I purchased this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend’s sister-in-law who lamented not having a green thumb. In the two months that the sis-in-law has had the AeroGarden, the growth has been tremendous. I’m constantly in awe when she sends me pics of the new growth.” –Mary A. Walls
Get it from Amazon for $99.97+ (available in three styles).
10. The 90th Anniversary Mickey Waffle Maker so you can recreate the classic Parks staple and chow down while planning your next magical vacation.
It’s a double-sided waffle maker that makes three Mickey-shaped breakfast treats on each side, so you can make six all at once! It also features an adjustable browning dial so you can make them *just* the way you like ’em. To the surprise of no one that has ever had a conversation with me, I have this exact waffle maker and it’s one of my most prized possessions.
Get it from shopDisney for $74.95.
