Shopping online is convenient — especially when you focus your attention on all the dope things that are suddenly shooting up the best-sellers list on Amazon. That way, you’ll probably wind up with a quality item that tons of shoppers adore.

Take this bathtub tray as an example. Not only has it been steadily rising up the best-sellers list, but it also has more than 2,000 positive four- and five-star ratings. That many people can’t be wrong, can they? And if you aren’t into taking baths, I’ve still made sure to include a little something on this list for everybody — and each item has hundreds of positive reviews so you can rest assured it’s worth your money.


These Magentic Whiteboard Markers That Can Stick To The Fridge

It’s almost too easy to lose track of your whiteboard markers over time — that’s why I’m a big fan of these ones. The caps are magnetic, allowing you to stick them right onto your whiteboard or fridge so that it’s easy to keep track of where they are. They also have minimal odor, as well as a fine tip that’s perfect for writing notes.


The Pet Hair Remover That’s Infinitely Reusable

Unlike lint rollers, this pet hair remover relies on hundreds of tiny bristles that latch onto lint, hair, and more, eliminating the need to buy replacement sticky sheets. The best part? It also features a collection bin that holds onto all that hair until you’re ready to throw it out — and it’s suitable for use on all types of fabrics and upholstery.


A Stamp That You Can Customize With Your Own Text

Bank deposits, return addresses, custom labels — this stamp can be used for all of them and more.

This Mounting Tape That Can Hold Up To 38 Pounds

Whether you’re renting or trying to avoid putting holes in your walls, this mounting tape is a solid alternative to nails or push pins.

A Handy Adapter That Adds Bluetooth To Your Car

Don’t have Bluetooth in your car? Plug this adapter into one of your AUX ports.

Plus, the rechargeable battery lasts for up to 16 hours before it needs to be plugged in again.


A Meter That Let You Know When It’s Time To Water Your Plants

Overwatering your plants is just as bad as under-watering them, so why not grab this moisture meter? It’s great for anyone whose thumb is more black than green, as it’ll let you know when the soil is too damp or too dry — and installation is as easy as pressing it down into your planters.


These Glasses That Help Block Blue Light From Your Computer Screen

The Insect Trap That Doesn’t Rely On Harsh Chemicals

Unlike some bug traps, this one doesn’t rely on harsh chemicals to rid your home of pests. Instead, it relies on a powerful UV light to draw them onto a sticky board.

A Large Patio Umbrella That’s Less Likely To Fade In The Sun

With its sturdy aluminum pole and UV-resistant canopy, it’s no wonder that this patio umbrella has thousands of positive four- and five-star reviews. There’s also an air vent at the top to help keep it from blowing away in strong gusts — and at 9 feet wide, it should give you just enough shade to cover about six chairs.


The Alarm Clock That Lets You Charge Your Phone While You Sleep

Not only does this alarm clock’s extra-large LED display make it easy to see from across the room, but it’s also adjustable so that it won’t keep you up at night. Two USB ports on the back allow you to charge your phone while you’re sleeping, and you can even adjust how loud the alarm is — just in case you’re an extra-heavy sleeper.

Two-way audio lets you talk to your pets while you’re away from home.


These Waterproof, Matte Pasties That Are Reusable

These pasties are made from soft silicone that’s unlikely to chafe against your skin. They’re thin enough to be virtually invisible underneath your clothes, yet thick enough to achieve the coverage you’re looking for. Plus, the waterproof adhesive helps keep them in place if you sweat.


A Microfiber Towel That Dries Really, Really Fast

Unlike the cotton towels that you might have hanging in your bathroom, this microfiber one can absorb more water and dry faster. It’s perfect for heated workouts, lounging on the beach, and everything in between. Plus, it folds up into a small travel pouch so that it’s easy to pack in a bag.


The Sunscreen That Won’t Harm Coral Reefs

Not all sunscreens are the same, and this one has a vegan formula that won’t damage coral reefs while you’re snorkeling on vacation. However, it’ll still provide you with SPF-15 protection — and if your skin always feels dry after a day spent out in the sun, that’s not a problem: The formula is also fortified with nourishing vitamin E.

If you’re trying to touch up some grown-in roots (but don’t have time for the salon), this spray is an easy way to hide that growth. It’s available in a variety of natural shades, from natural black to dark golden brown. And since it’s made without any ammonia or peroxide, it can be used on various types of hair.


A Camping Chair That Has A Cooler Built Into The Armrest

Not only is this camping chair easy to fold up and take with you, but it also features a small cooler built into one of its armrests.

Plus, there are also side pockets for books, snacks, and more.


The Fitted Mattress Protector That’s Durable, Yet Breathable

Buying a mattress is almost never cheap, which is why grabbing this protective fitted sheet is such a good idea.

Got an important Zoom meeting coming up? Make sure your dog won’t interrupt by giving them this puzzle toy.

It’s easy for makeup brushes to become filled with foundation and blush. The solution? Give them a thorough clean with this washer. It’s designed to work with brushes of nearly any size, from large kabuki brushes to slim eyeshadow ones. Plus, each order includes a bottle of soap to get you started.


These Velvet-Lined Hangers That Take Up Less Closet Space

Not only do these thin hangers take up less space in your closet than chunky plastic ones, but they’re also coated with soft velvet to help keep tank tops, spaghetti straps, and more from slipping off.

There’s nothing wrong with having ingrown hairs — but if you’d like to keep yours to a minimum, this brush might be able to help treat and prevent them.

Plus, the water-resistant exterior helps keep it working from season to season.


A Splatter Screen That Saves You Some Mess

Fried foods may be delicious, but they can also be messy to cook — that’s why I like to have a splatter screen on hand.

And unlike other splatter screens, this one, in particular, is made from premium-grade stainless steel.


The Bath Pillow With Extra Cushioning For Your Back

Unlike some bath pillows, this one features a few extra bonus panels so that your arms, shoulders, and back are supported while you soak in the tub.
