Amazon is addicting; we get it. There’s just an endless supply of things we could use! Here at SPY, we understand the struggle – not of buying something, of course, but of explaining our buys to those who ask for our ‘justification.’ That’s why we’ve made you this list. It’s filled with products you can send straight to your door, and we’ve included the reasoning to go along with it.
For example, do you have a microwave? You need this cute little Angry Mama gadget to help you clean it. Oh, is avocado on toast your favorite in the mornings? We love it too. You must get one of these avocado-cutting tools to stop you from slicing your hand off ever again.
There are a ton of incredible inventions out there that are dying to be noticed, and we’ve found you the best and most affordable ones. Everything on this list has thousands of ratings and an overall rating of above four stars. Because what’s the use of finding something cool that’s too expensive or hated by everyone who’s bought one? Not much, if you ask us. So go ahead and use that Christmas money that’s burning a hole in your pocket. These items are absolutely worth it.
The Original Wine Condoms
These wine condoms are sure to get a laugh, but that’s not their only use! They actually create an air-tight seal around your wine that’s better than traditional stoppers and way better than reusing your cork! Because they don’t add height to the bottle, it’s easier to store your wine back in the fridge or cabinet.
Silicone Multi-Function Hook
The legs on this multifunction hook wrap around and hold things into place. The strong adhesive stick onto any flat surface, including the shower wall, meaning it can be used for anything from razors to toothbrushes, all the way to jewelry and phone cords. A pack of four is less than $10 dollars right now, so you should put two in your cart.

Insulated Cooler Bag
Carhartt’s a well-known brand, so when they made an affordable lunch cooler that’s large enough for a six-pack we had to get our hands on one. Both compartments are insulated and roomy, making them perfect for separating drinks and snacks.
We’re confident that this is one that you’ll be thankful for over and over again.

Neck & Shoulder Relaxer
We love when reviewers are specific about how a product makes them feel. Check out this 5-star rating for the neck relaxer above: “As soon as I got it, I laid on it for 10 mins (like the instructions say) and boy, did I feel the difference right away! …When I turned to the right, my neck didn’t hurt as much…Here I am, day 2, using this neck foam, and I feel great. I can turn my neck with very little discomfort, and about 80% of the pain is gone. I’m sure with continued use. It’ll only get better and better. Glad I bought it and will recommend it to anyone suffering from neck pain.”

They included divider trays that will keep all of your toppings safe!

Food waste should never actually be wasted. It’s compostable! This compost bin will keep all awful smells inside the container and can be placed on your countertop or hung by the included adhesive hooks. The lid can open in two different ways depending on your angle, and the pack even has some trash bags included.
Garlic is a kitchen staple that we can all agree on but cutting it up will quickly lead to stinky and sticky fingers – no thank you. Gracula can press, crush, and mince multiple cloves of garlic at a time in just a simple twist. Still not justifiable? Don’t worry; it works with ginger, nuts, chilis, and herbs too.
