22 Weirdly Genius Household Items Most Added To Amazon Wish Lists
I could spend my entire day scrolling through Amazon (and I probably have before). There are so many different categories to look through, but perhaps my favorite is the "Most Wished For" section. I rounded up the most weirdly genius household items that are most added to Amazon wish lists, and there were some really good picks.
I don't have my own place yet, so I can totally get behind the idea of a household item wish list. In fact, I actually already have one (and it's pretty long). And I was happy to find that, like myself, people were also wishing for kitchen tools like a spiralizer or fancy corkscrew, organizational things that help improve storage, and products that can make life easier like sponges or a steamer.
I don't know what it is, but I find that household products are even more fun to shop for than clothes, shoes, or beauty items. I guess it's because they are the items that you end up using the most in everyday life. So, check out the weird, but genius household products that people are dying to get their hands on while shopping on Amazon. Can you picture any of these in your own home?
2. Relax With Some Aromatherapy
This uniquely designed aromatherapy diffusor will become your favorite thing in your home. You can use it to create a relaxing environment (perfect for your bedroom, office, or even your yoga room). It has seven LED light choices that you can change according to your mood. You can run the diffusor from one to six hours on a timer, and you can choose between an intermittent mist or a continuous one. Use your favorite scents and feel your stress melt away.
3. Grind Yourself The Perfect Cup Of Coffee
If you're someone who likes to buy coffee beans whole and grind them yourself, then you need a grinder for your home that really works. This one is the perfect choice because it keeps the original taste of your coffee beans and it's easy to clean and store. The best part about it though is that it's extremely portable. Because it's not electric, you can bring it with you hiking or camping and make your favorite coffee on the go.
4. The Coolest Blanket Ever That Turns You Into A Mermaid
I was a huge Little Mermaid fan growing up. I used to pretend I was Ariel and I always wanted my own mermaid tail. If you had the same dream as a kid, now you can have your very own tail. This super soft blanket is sure to keep you warm. It's basically like a sleeping bag in the shape of a mermaid tail, which pretty much makes it the coolest blanket ever.
5. Easily Slice Up A Watermelon On A Hot Summer Day
A BBQ just isn't complete without watermelon. And cutting and preparing a one can be hard work if not done properly. If you don't have a good enough knife to cut through the rind, then you should think about picking up one of these slicers. The stainless steel slicer can be used to cut, slice, and peel watermelon. It's also dishwasher-safe so you can easily clean it when done.
6. Prepare All Your Favorite Meals With One Pot
I love anything that is multifunctional. And this pressure cooker is super versatile. My friend actually has it and made some delicious shredded fajita style chicken in it and it was so good. The pot can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, steamer, and to saute food. It's one of those items that is perfect if you have a small kitchen and need to maximize your space.
7. Hangers That Can Pretty Much Do Anything
If you have a ton of clothes, then you need to find hangers that don't take up a lot of space and will help you stay organized. This pack of eight plastic hangers are a great addition to your closet because of all of their features. They can be folded up for storage, you can hang them by attaching them to one another, they have nonslip grips, and they have pants clips.
8. Reusable Glass Water Bottles For All Your Favorite Drinks
I love to brew my own iced green tea, but it takes me forever because I only have a plastic jug, so I have to wait for it to cool down before I put it in the fridge. These reusable glass water bottles would come in handy for making brewed iced tea, fresh squeezed juice, lemonade, or even salad dressings. They can be easily cleaned, and you can use them to transport both hot and cold liquids.
9. Make Healthy Noodle Dishes
Stay healthy and make some veggie noodles for your favorite dishes. Replace pasta and make gluten free, vegan meals with the spin of a wheel. You can create apple chips, onion rings, zoodles, and more with this kit. It comes with four standard blade modes, and you can create seven different patterns or styles of noodles.
10. Pop Your Favorite Popcorn For Movie Night
If you're a big movie buff and you can't watch without a nice, big bowl of popcorn, then you really need a popcorn popper. You'll end up saving a ton of money on microwavable popcorn bags because you can just buy a big bag of kernels instead. Place the kernels inside the popper, put it in the microwave, and in minutes you'll have delicious popcorn in an easy to clean bowl. Plus you'll have access to an ebook with over 200 delicious recipes.
11. A Desktop That Gives You Options
Use this desk when you need to stand up. It isn't heavy so it can easily be placed on top of your current desk, and used when you feel like you need to move around. Or, you can remove the top portion and create a lap desk or monitor stand. Both the bottom and the top of the stand can be used to hold office supplies, your phone, business cards, and more (there is even a cup holder for your coffee).
12. A Steam Cleaner That Can Be Used All Over Your Home
I don't think I've ever seen a steamer that you can use to clean carpet, wood or tile floors, the kitchen countertops, furniture, and clothing. But, with a few different attachments, you can literally do anything with this steamer. It's super lightweight and portable. All you need to do is fill it with water and plug it in and it will start to work.
13. Lounge Around On A Comfy Chair
This little recliner is perfect for your bedroom, dorm room, or wherever else you feel like taking a load off. It has an adjustable backrest that can fold to four different positions between 90 degrees and flat. So, it not only makes a good chair, but a guest could also sleep on it if you don't have any other options.
14. Get A Good Snuggle In
I have this friend who literally builds a pillow fort around her body before she goes to bed each night. It's the funniest thing ever to witness. I think I'm going to tell her about this body pillow. It's perfect for side sleepers and will make you feel snug and secure while you sleep. It is great for supporting your back, hips, neck, and more.
15. Organize Your Makeup And Get Rid Of A Mess
My makeup drawer is a disaster. This little acrylic two piece set would make my life so much easier (and cleaner/more organized). If you have a small makeup collection then this is the perfect option for storing it. It will be organized, and look nice enough that you can keep it on your countertop.
16. Is It A Towel Rack Or A Wine Rack?
Use this rack to display towels or wine, depending on which room you hang it in. It has six slots that can be used to store towels for your guests, or your wine collection. And if you can't decide what you want to use it for, you can always buy the two pack.
17. Stylish Hanging Containers For Your Walls
I really love these hanging wall containers. The geometric style is so fun for either your bedroom, bathroom, or office. You can use it as a wall planter, to store hand towels, or even to keep office supplies organized. One user said, "Beautiful, exactly as pictured. So lovely if you would like to add some green to your living environment."
18. Light Up Your Room And Purify The Air With A Hand Carved Natural Himalayan Salt Lamp
People are loving these himalayan salt lamps. They're a cool decoration and give off a relaxing and calming glow when plugged in (and if you change the color of the bulb, the hue of the salt will change too). When you turn it on, and the salt is heated, it releases negative ions in to the room which purifies the surrounding air.
19. A Tool That Allows You To Clean Up And Store Leftovers More Efficiently
I'm seriously obsessed with this idea. It's just too good. I couldn't even tell you how many times I've made something that could easily be stored in a ziploc bag but it's just too hard to do it. Whether it's a dip, or soup, I usually end up spilling at least some of it on the counter. This little stand has clips for your baggy and it allows you to stand it up, handsfree. Pour your favorite leftovers without an annoying mess.
20. Store Your Favorite Things On A Rustic Shelf
Rustic details are often the best when it comes to decorating a room. And this shelf is no different. Hang it on the wall to show off your favorite knick-knacks, and use the hooks to hang keys, bags, or your jacket. It will add some personality to whatever room you choose. One user said, "Super super cute...I ordered a second one to put directly next to it."
21. Eliminate Odors And Sanitize Air With A Pluggable Purifier
Eliminate gross odors that are caused by smoke, dirty laundry, pets, cooking, and more. The UV-C light attacks airborne bacteria, viruses, mold, and odors when they pass through it. It's great because all you need to do is plug it in, and it starts working. Plug it into the bathroom, the kitchen, or the laundry room to remove the worst odors and germs found around your home.
22. Sponges That Stay Clean — And Were On Shark Tank
Cleaning your house can be a pain, but the right tools can make it a lot easier. That's where the beloved Shark Tank alum Scrub Daddy sponge comes in. It has two holes (the eyes) where you can firmly hold onto it. If you use warm water, you can gently clean a surface or dishes, and if you use cold water, you can really scrub. The great thing about it is that the material allows it to rinse off completely. That way it stays clean, and smells great for weeks.
