47 Genuinely Entertaining Things You Can Buy On Amazon that Make Staying Home Fun

Amazon / Bustle

My typical rainy day at home consists of streaming one too many episodes of my favorite series followed by a melodramatic gallivant outside where I decide being cooped up inside is the worst. But when you have genuinely entertaining things from Amazon that make staying home fun, avoiding a torrential downpour or snowstorm becomes a little more delightful.

Of course, we all know that Amazon is an oasis of bizarre items that are actually brilliant, as well at the best market for finding useful AF products. But it's also the best place to find captivating products that can turn hours of being trapped inside from a punishment into a party.

Whether it's a face mask that's part of a long overdue DIY spa day or a kit for creating your own gin, these products offer an enticing way to spend your free time. Of course, what's considered engaging by one person may not always be too provocative for others. That's why there's a wide range of products that cover a variety of interests from doodling to competitive card games. And of course, there's also a few techie upgrades that turn too many episodes of TV into a theater-like experience (so it still beats your typical lazy day).

By adding these genuinely entertaining products to your Amazon cart now, you'll be prepared for your next night, or day, at home. And who knows, you may even start planning your next one!
