Is there anything better than doing a bit of online window shopping? I find myself filling up my virtual cart several times a week, and while I usually don’t complete checkout on most of these visits, there’s one place I do end up getting way too many deliveries from: Amazon. Here are some of the weirdest, most random things you can buy on the site and totally should.
The Original Comfy Blanket Hoodie – $39.99
I got this for Christmas this past year and I’m literally wearing it as I type this. As someone who’s always cold, this has been a godsend. It feels like a total dream, super soft and cuddly, and it really does keep you warm. I’m quite tall (5’10”) and this comes nearly down to my knees and is nice and roomy so I can actually tuck my legs into it when I’m on the couch. Seriously, if you don’t already own this, you need it.
Nostalgia Electric Smores Maker – $20.59
Smores don’t just have to be for summer camping trips – this lets you make them from the comfort of your own home. Do you need any more information on this? I think not.
Lychee 5V Desktop USB fridge – $18.99
Look, man, I work at my desk all day and while my fitness tracker does prompt me to stand hourly, sometimes I’m trying to get a task done and I’m thirsty. I want to crack open a cold one and thanks to my little USB desk fridge, I can. Score!
Angry Mama Microwave & Fridge Cleaner – $15.99
I don’t know about you, but despite my best efforts, the inside of my microwave gets kinda gross sometimes. I don’t like using harsh cleaners and often hit up the old vinegar/water trick, but the Angry Mama set kinda does the dirty work for me, so to speak. Keeping one in the fridge filled with baking soda keeps me from having an open box of Arm & Hammer hanging around, so I’m all for that too.
Good Pineapple Eco-Friendly Shower Curtain with Smartphone Pockets – $16.99
Some would argue that you don’t actually need your smartphone when you’re in the shower, but if I’m in the middle of watching an episode of something and I need to wash my hair, it’s kinda convenient to be able to throw my phone or table in one of the pockets and keep on watching while I do what I gotta do. I love modern conveniences!!
TriceraTACO taco holder – $9.79
I hesitate to write anything about this because it’s so painfully obvious why you would need this in your kitchen that to spoil it with words would be a shame. I’ll just leave this here.
Stainles Steel Butter Spreader Knife – $13.89
Do you really need a specific knife to spread your butter on your toast? The answer is yes. This makes it easier to scrape off a thin, divided bit of cold butter for easier application, because there’s nothing worse than ripping your toast from trying to pile a big glob of hard, cold butter on it.
Golden Girls Windshield Visor – $29.99
Summer is coming and that means your car is going to get hot enough to fry an egg on the dashboard. It doesn’t have to be this way! Your car (and you) can stay cool by putting a visor in the windshield, specifically this Golden Girls visor. Your car will be thanking YOU for being a friend. (Sorry, I had to.)
11-in-1 Survival Gear Kit – $33.88
If Bird Box becomes real life and you suddenly have to go all Sandra Bullock on the crazy people who want you to just look, you’ll be prepared if you have this survival kit. Or, you know, I guess you could use it to go camping with or whatever.
Donald Trump Toilet paper – $12.99
No comment needed on this one. Wipe your butt with 45. Your soul will feel cleansed and refreshed.
LED Toilet Bowl Light – $15.95
Ever gotten up to pee in the middle of the night and had that split second of terror that maybe there was a rat or a snake that was going to come up and bite your nether regions to smithereens? You can rest easy when you have an LED toilet light. That’s all I’m saying.
Cosmos Kitchen Knife Set – $49.95
I mean, you have to be a particular type of person to own a cosmos knife set, but this gets 5-star reviews across the board and it looks pretty cool if you’re in a particular period of your life where owning this makes sense. Who doesn’t love space?
Egg Yolk Extractor – $5
Sometimes it’s annoying to have to separate your egg yolks from the whites (which strangely enough I do kinda often for certain recipes). Yeah, it doesn’t take much effort to do it manually, but I’m all about anything that makes my life easier.
