Amazon may have originally launched as an online book store, but you could basically consider the retailer our all-in-one go-to shopping destination at this point. From sheets to fire pits to dog beds, we shop for just about everything on the retailer. And through all those many purchases and rigorous testing (yes, tough job we have!), we've got a pretty good eye on what makes a product life-changing versus one that ends up in the trash.
We surveyed our team on the absolute best things they've ever bought on Amazon, and, thus, we present you with this list. These items have made it into our every day life, with many on Subscribe & Save at this point. Trust us, while not everything you impulse buy on Amazon is a worthy purchase, any of these 50 items will be.
This is one of those products you'll be both satisfied and disgusted by. A review from a friend: "We've had my couch two years and no pets or food are allowed on it. This upholstery cleaner still pulled so much out. I was absolutely disgusted but also can't stop cleaning everything in my house now."
Portable Air Conditioner with Heat and Remote Control
I could define my life in two separate times: when I used corded vacuums and when I started using a cordless vacuum, because, yes, it is that life-changing. Finding a great cordless vacuum that's high-quality and relatively inexpensive is tough, but this one fills the bill. It has a 45 minute run time (far longer than many other brands) and notifies you on the level of dirt in your floors and when it needs a cleaning.
Pressure washers are good for so much more than just cleaning your driveway! Use them on your rugs for a deep clean, the sides of your home to get them looking spiffy, and so much more. This one is an incredible bargain and it's electric.
This air fryer beats any other for one main reason: shelves > baskets. The wire shelves of the PowerXL air fryer allow you to fit way more food inside and gets your veggies and meats incredibly crisp. You've never had fries until you've tried them in this bad boy.
Parents, pet owners, and generally messy people: add this to your cart and thank me later. Folex removes stains from carpet and upholstery better than any cleaner I've ever seen. Many times you don't even have to scrub it in—just watch the stain disappear before your eyes. This won't remove smells, so you'll want to use an additional solution for the stinky stuff.
Great pillows are one of the easiest and least expensive switches you can make and see immediate improvement in your sleep. These gel-filled pillows keep you cool at night and mold to whatever sleep position you prefer while still providing gentle support.
If you have a dog, get this leash right now. It functions as both a regular leash and includes a seatbelt buckle, so taking your pup on the go is easy as can be. The quality of the leash is also superb—thick fabric and a heavy-duty metal carabiner.
I noticed my eyes looking a little duller and getting red much easier about a year ago, but didn't realize just how bad it was until I tried these drops. I immediately went to go tell my friends about them only to realize that they all sweared by them as well. Coming from someone with sensitive eyes: these are a lifesaver.
This wine saver is one of my top 5 most-used Amazon purchases. We've all been there: you don't want to open a bottle of wine just for one (or two) glasses on a weeknight because it'll be bad in a few days. This vacuum sealer extends the life of a bottle to a few weeks, so have that glass of Sauv Blanc on a Tuesday if you want.
This book should be required reading for all Southern women. Follow the funny adventures of this Charleston book club's encounter with, you guessed it, vampires. The prose is eloquent yet hilarious—a balance not easily struck—and transports you back to all the best parts of the 1990's while throwing more than enough thrill and chill into the mix.
This offset umbrella is easily maneuverable to get the maximum amount of shade on the sunniest days. My uncovered deck receives full afternoon sun with no tree blockage and this umbrella makes days spent there bearable.
If your average load of laundry consists of workout clothes, kid's play clothes, pet blankets, or anything generally smelly, then pick this up now. It's the only thing I've found that truly removes the stench of almost anything, including mildewed towels.
The cover and title alone sold me on this book but the read was better than I could have ever guessed. The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue is the story of a girl who makes a deal with the spirits that answer in the dark and ends up with a life she never asked for. Follow her through different continents and centuries on her one-of-a-kind journey.
We can all attest to how dirty the bottom of our bags get—yeah, it's gross. This handy little ball picks up all the random little things that fall to the bottom of your bag so you don't have to spend 30 minutes making it spiffy clean.
This silicone popcorn popper comes in more than a dozen fun colors. It allows you to make popcorn in the microwave with little to no oil for a healthy snack. The silicone is dishwasher save and won't break.
If you're looking for a book that will keep you guessing until the very last page, then The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is it. It's murder mystery meets Bridgerton meets Groundhog Day and will have you on the edge of your seat the entire time.
You'll find countless ways to put this handy cart to use. We're short on pantry space, so we use ours in the kitchen as a snack caddy, but it's also a handy spot for books, video games, craft supplies...the list goes on!
This extra-large heating pad is a must for anyone who suffers from aches and pains (and isn't that all of us?). At 20x24 inches, it's big enough to cover any area you need it to reach. It has a 2-hour shutoff so you can use it without worry, and the cover is machine-washable.
These down pillow inserts are far nicer than their price would lead you to believe. They're sturdy yet fluffy and are great to have on hand. Pro tip: buy an insert one size larger than your pillow cover for that extra-fluffy look.
I bought one of these frames as a wedding happy for a friend and was so impressed with the quality and the price that I had to snag one for myself. The leather is soft and textured and so chic with the gold border.
True story: I once wore these to the grocery store and had to double check that I was wearing real-ish pants after getting out of the car because they are so comfy. I actually thought I was wearing pjs.
Pet owners: buy these pet alert stickers for your home and then share the rest with your friends. Stick them on a window or your door to let first responders know in an emergency that you have pets to be saved.
I am not a fan of most romance-y beach reads, but Summer of '69 breaks Elin Hilderbrand's usual genre and is one of my absolute favorite books. Travel back to one of the U.S.'s most tumultuous summers and follow the Levin family's four children and how they learn to cope with a world that's changing rapidly around them. I truly wish I could read this book for the first time again. Who knew you could miss reading a book?
Some of us enjoy the occasional glass of Champagne or two without wanting to drink an entire bottle, which can present a problem because, you know, bubbles. This vacuum sealer saves those bubbles for a few days so there's no need to down an entire bottle—unless you want to, of course. It also works on any bottle of wine!

These blackout curtains are heavy and high-quality without the price tag of equally impressive drapes. Add trim or leave these as they are and people will think you spend hundreds. They also block light better than any curtains I've tried, a must for nap lovers like me.
This immersion blender will forever have a place in my kitchen thanks to its many attachments, including a blending shaft, whisk, mixing cup, and food processor attachment. There are only a handful of immersion blenders on the market that include mini food processor attachments and it is worth all the money in the world. Quickly chop herbs, whip up pesto, or mix guacamole with it.
A wine fridge is something I never knew I needed until I got this one as a gift. It saves so much space in my regular fridge and keeps wine isolated from other foods that might infiltrate a slightly ajar seal and keeps it at the perfect temperature.
A high-quality duvet insert is worth the splurge, but luckily this one is incredibly budget-friendly. It's slightly weight yet cooling and provides the bit of fluff that makes your bed look extra luxurious.
Natural textures like rattan, wicker, and cane are on-trend right now but have never stopped being part of classically chic home décor staples. This cane frame looks way more expensive than you'd think thanks to the natural detailing.
