I'm a shopping editor & these random, cheap things on Amazon are effing amazing

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.


I spend a lot of my time shopping on Amazon to find the best products. The only problem is — some of my absolute favorite finds never seem to fit into one category. So, I just popped them all into one list because these random, cheap things on Amazon are effing amazing.

I love these unique finds, and I always want to share my current Amazon favorites, like this face mask that bubbles, a trendy candle that comes in the prettiest jar, and some packing cubes that are going to make your travels so much easier. These are the products you text to your friends (even if you’ve already told them about them). I mean, a Bluetooth sleeping mask that lets you comfortably sleep with a podcast on is worth annoying your friends until they finally grab one, right?

If you can manage to resist texting your friends about these things, that may work out in your favor, because these budget-friendly finds are good enough to snag them as gifts.
