It’s well-known that Amazon has everything. You already know you can use it to restock on your favorite shampoo or find a quick gift for your niece’s fifth birthday, but what does “everything” really mean?

I wanted to find out so, after some digging, I put together this list. “Everything” apparently means a mosquito repeller that creates a 15-foot safety zone and this shower head filter that uses vitamin C to clean your water. Products like these not only help make your life easier, they can also make it more fun, comfortable, and stylish.

For an even better fit you can use the heat from a blow dryer to gently soften and then mold the straps to the perfect size.
