With spring cleaning season just around the corner, now is the time to get your home in order—and make a few purchases in honor of the refresh. If you're looking to add a few things to your home that will only make your day-to-day easier, we've got you covered.
We trawled Amazon for some great products that will withstand the test of the seasonal purge, as they're handy to have at home all year long. These items are practical, budget-friendly, and here to give your home a boost.
Netany Drinking Glasses with Glass Straws
These glasses with accompanying straws have taken off recently, thanks to their versatile use and classic design. They’re a must if you’re a daily iced coffee or green juice drinker, and the straws are an eco-friendly way to protect your teeth from staining.
Amazon Basics Smart LED Light Bulb
If you have an Alexa device or just use the app, the latest trend is to sync your home lighting plan to your device and let her do the work for you. Go for soft white in a traditional space, or opt for color changing in your kids’ room, playroom, or basement hangout space.
Mueller French Press Double Insulated Stainless Steel Coffee Maker
A French press is one of those things that makes you feel instantly fancy, even though it’s pretty simple and straightforward. But if you’re low on counter space, want something you can easily store out of sight, or just want to up your coffee game, this is a practical must-have. It also works for tea, hot chocolate, and steamed milk, making it a pretty powerful kitchen accessory despite its small size.
La Jolíe Muse Eucalyptus & Rosemary Scented Candle
A luxury candle might not seem like a practical buy, but hear us out—we firmly believe that a great home scent is key for setting the mood and improving any space. These La Jolie Muse candles always have great reviews, and we can see why. We love the classic, brand-free jar that can easily be repurposed, the variety of colors, and the fact they can burn for up to eighty hours.
WIBIMEN Round Ice Cube Tray with Lid & Bin
If you always need ice on hand but don’t have a built-in maker, constantly refilling ice cube trays can be kind of a pain. That’s why an ice bin is a great addition to your freezer—and this one gets bonus points for coming with adorable trays that make round ice cubes.
COOKTRON 1.7L Electric Kettle
Electric kettles are a fairly new phenomenon in the US, but if you’re a fan of tea, they’re a million times better than a stovetop kettle or the microwave. We love this cordless option for its sleek design and its variety of colors.
Babish 4pk Steak Knife
Steak knives are one of those things you should have on hand, even if you can’t find a set you love to look at. These high-carbon stainless steel ones from Babish are a welcome exception. They’re simple yet chic, and not overly expensive for a set of four.
Conair Handheld Travel Garment Steamer
Fabric steamers are one of those things you didn’t realize you needed until you have one. This travel-sized one is a great option, whether you plan to take it with you when you travel or not. Along with clothes, steamers are great for smoothing out small creases in curtains and table linens, as well as sheets and pillowcases.
Komashr Apothecary Jar Canisters
If you’re constantly chasing the feeling of a luxury hotel at home, chic apothecary jars in your bathroom are an instant boost––but they’re practical, too. We love the gold-lidded option of these small canisters, perfect for storing cotton swabs, makeup sponges, and more.
Stardrops The Pink Stuff Miracle Cleaning Paste and Multi-Purpose Spray
There’s a reason some products go completely viral on cleaning TikTok, and The Pink Stuff is no joke. The cleaning paste, in particular, is amazing for scrubbing off otherwise impossible to remove smudges, especially from white walls and lacquered tables.
FryAway Pan Fry Waste Cooking Oil Solidifier Powder
We all know that leftover cooking oil should never be poured down the drain, but that doesn’t make cleaning up any easier. Enter: Fry Away! After making something like bacon, french fries, or fried chicken, add Fry Away to your pan to help solidify the leftover oil. Then, scrape it into the household trash with no mess.
kimteny 12 Pack Kitchen Cloth Dish Towels
This is your friendly reminder to replace your kitchen towels and dishcloths! Maybe it’s just us, but this is one of those household items that does not get a refresh nearly as often as they should. These are super absorbent and come in a pack of twelve, so you’ll be set for a while.
Bymore Fabric Shaver
There’s nothing more annoying than a super soft sweater that’s covered in tiny pills. That’s exactly why you need a fabric shaver! It works on everything from cashmere to wool, and can even be used on upholstery if you have a sofa, chair, or curtains that are prone to the same tiny balls of lint.
Stanley 40oz Adventure Quencher Reusable Insulated Stainless Steel Tumbler Cup With Handle
If you’ve been on pretty much any social media feed lately, you’ve seen the Stanley Stainless Steel tumbler. It’s most definitely having a major viral moment. But there’s a reason for it! They’re insulated, high-volume, and a stylish way to remind yourself to stay hydrated.
Hatori Travel Jewelry Box
This little travel jewelry box is a major must-have, even if you’re not toting your jewelry out and about. It has individual compartments for keeping everything organized, and its classic design is small enough to tuck away when not in use.
SpaceAid Pull Out Spice Rack Organizer
Spices can take up an alarming amount of space if you don’t have a dedicated zone for them, and this pull-out rack is an easy addition to any cabinet. Simply decant your spices into the jars, label them, and place them onto the rack for an instant transformation in your kitchen.
HAUS AND HUES Natural Wood Picture Frames Set of 6
One of the best ways to pull a room together is with a cohesive set of matching frames in various sizes. Even if you don’t use them for a traditional gallery wall, filling a frame set with photos, postcards, and artwork can really set the tone of a room while making your walls feel stylized and intentional.
Shibusa Match Holder with Striker
Whether you have a traditional fireplace or just light a lot of candles, a matchstick holder with a striker is a must-have. Often, the striker on a matchbox wears out, or the box itself isn’t particularly eye-catching. This solves both of those problems.
TOONOW Fuzzy Faux Fur Throw Blanket
I don't mean to alarm anyone, but blanket season has peaked. Before it officially comes to an end, snatch up a cozy new blanket to see you through to spring. Faux fur is a great way to add texture to a room, and we love this one's pastel options.
Afumazi 8Pcs Hexagon Felt Cork Board Tiles
Cork boards and bulletin boards are a great addition to any kitchen or home office, and we love this spin on the traditional framed option. The tiles can be arranged into any shape or order and coordinated by color for maximum organization.
