Sur la Table

This health-conscious attachment for your standard KitchenAid stand mixer makes it super-easy to create delicious zoodles in a flash.

Sur La Table ($100)


Amazon Dash Button

Push it when you’re running low on laundry detergent (or toilet paper or moisturizer or tampons or whatever product you buy a button for) and more will arrive at your door before you run out. Living in the 21st century is pretty great.

Amazon ($5)


4Moms High Chair

Can you believe we used to live in a world where babies could toss a bowl of oatmeal onto the floor just to watch it splatter? No wonder parents are going nutty over this high chair that uses magnets to keep bowls and plates on the tray. Genius.

4Moms ($300)


Wemo Switch

No more freaking out, wondering if you forgot to turn off the curling iron before you ran out the door. With this gadget, you can control your electronics from your smartphone—even if you’re 30 minutes into a movie.

Belkin ($40)


Dyson Supersonic

The universal dilemma: Get an extra ten minutes of sleep or blow-dry your hair? This super-pricey but effective hair dryer prevents heat damage and cuts drying time in half. Have your sleep and dry your hair, too? Magic is real.

bed bath & beyond

GermGuardian Elite Pluggable UV-C Sanitizer

Germaphobes are going to eat this pluggable sanitizer up. It claims to eliminate more than 98 percent of airborne germs. Dust mites? Bye, Felicia!

Bed Bath & Beyond ($40)


iRobot Roomba 980

It seems hard to believe that a robot can vacuum a room as well as a person can, but it’s so true. This new and improved version even goes from hardwood to carpet and can be controlled from an app. It’s a lifesaver if you have pets…or if you just don’t feel like doing it yourself.

iRobot ($900)


Owlet Heart Rate and Oxygen Baby Monitor

New moms are wont to worry. And while this new sock-like product won’t completely solve that problem (worrying is what 70 percent of being a mom is, after all), it will keep you updated and send alerts of your newborn’s vitals to your smartphone.

Owlet ($250)

Dog Gone Smart Zip n'Dri Dog Towel

Dog owners are all too familiar with the vivacious shake session that follows Fido?s bath or rainy-day walk. Well, so long, soaking-wet bathrooms and couches, because this nifty towel is super-absorbent and will have your buddy dry in minutes.

PetSmart (from $55)

Programmable Casserole Crock Slow Cooker

Whether your recipe needs to cook for 30 minutes or 20 hours, this programmable, portable casserole dish will help you not regret that you volunteered to feed ten book clubbers. Throw the ingredients into the dish before work, stop home to grab it that evening and then set it on warm for ten minutes before serving. Boom!

Crock-Pot ($60)

dryer balls1

Reusable Dryer Balls

When you’re running late because your pants are still wet, cutting drying time is pretty crucial.

Amazon ($5)


Moxie Rainhead with Wireless Speaker

OK, so this might not make your life easier, but it will definitely make it better. Who hasn’t struggled to hear their favorite song during a shower-singing session and thought, I need a speaker inside my shower to solve this nightly debacle? Just us? Didn’t think so.

Kohler ($300)
