clockwise from top center: Weighted Blanket // Pot + Pan Organizer // Luggage Rack // Spa Bath Mitt // Acupressure Mat // Pregnancy Pillow // Travel Power Strip // Conair Handheld Steamer // Dr. Singha’s Mustard Bath // Nespresso Machine // Bamboo Bath Tray // Massage Therapy Balls // Pet Hair Remover // Shampoo Massage Brush // Command Ledges (for bathroom shelving!) // Makeup Organizer

I got a bunch of requests for an Amazon gift guide, and I guess this post could work for that… or you could just gift yourself, HA. But these are my favorite purchase from Amazon. Most of them will likely feel VERY familiar as I’ve talked about all of these things many times now… but it’s nice to have them all in one place! I’ve probably left something important off (I have a weird feeling I did), but I love everything on this list so so much!

Edited to add: I KNEW I left something off. My ice roller!!! Cannot live without it. Read all about my ice roller in this blog post.

one // Weighted Blanket I love my gravity blanket so so much. I wrote a whole big review of it (read that, it will answer literally ANY question you could have about it), but it is the absolute best when you are stressed out or overstimulated. I will lay under this and read or watch TV.

two // Pot + Pan Organizer I bough this for under the sink and it’s such a godsend for streamlining messy piles of pots and pans! I don’t know how I ever did without it!

three // Luggage Rack I copied Becca (who I co-host the podcast with) on this one… suitcases are gross and I hate putting them on my bed, so this is perfect! It also makes home feel a bit like a hotel, which I love!

four // Spa Bath Mitt This was a things I bought and liked influence! I LOVE this mit. It feels so good on your skin – exfoliating and cleansing… and it won’t get gross or mildew-y.

five // Acupressure Mat This is a purchase I haven’t been using as much as usual but need to! I love it after a good workout. I wrote a blog post about it with all the benefits and what makes it so special but I highly recommend it!

six // Pregnancy Pillow Oh my god this may just be my favorite thing from 2019. My massage therapist got me hooked, saying it would help me stop folding my shoulders in when I sleep (I sleep on my stomach or side). Gamechanger. It’s also amazing for curling up and reading. You just feel like you are in this amazing, cozy little cave. I could not love it more.

seven // Travel Power Strip I keep this in my travel bag and swear by it! It’s great for the plane or anywhere that plugs can be an issue. It could work well in the bathroom too if you have multiple hot tools and not a lot of outlets.

eight // Conair Handheld Steamer I had a really janky steamer for my clothes and steaming things was such a pain. Not anymore! This one is SO powerful… can’t recommend it enough!

nine // Dr. Singha’s Mustard Bath This is such a great detox bath. It will make you sweat and sweat and sweat, but you’ll feel amazing after. I recommend doing it before bedtime. You’ll sleep like an angel.

ten // Nespresso Machine I use my Nespresso Vertuoline machine every single day. It’s probably the first thing I do. It’s great for single people bc it makes just one cup… and it’s so frothy and delicious!

eleven // Bamboo Bath Tray This tray is the quickest way to make your bathtub feel like a spa or a hotel. It holds a book, a glass of wine, a glass of water… it’s just wonderful.

twelve // Massage Therapy Balls These are one of my favorite little gadgets whenever I am really sore or have a knot. It’s amazing how much pain (in a good way) they can cause, but it’s even more amazing how effective they are. I can’t recommend them enough!

thirteen // Pet Hair Remover My Chom Chom is SUCH a game changer. Wow. I love this thing! It gets all of Tyrion’s fur off blankets, upholstery, even the carpet. I only bought it a month or so ago and my mind is still blown by it!

fourteen // Scalp Massage Brush It’s truly amazing how wonderful this inexpensive little gadget is. It would make a GREAT stocking stuffer. I like to use it while I shampoo to help loosen up any buildup or dry shampoo residue. But really, it just feels so nice.

fifteen // Command Ledge // These may just be the product I get asked about most. I have them in my bathroom and they’re amazing for displaying + storing all my skincare. LOVE. I get asked this a lot: they’ve never fallen down. But it’s important to put them in an area of your bathroom that won’t get wet! Moisture will weaken the bond of the strip

sixteen // Makeup Organizer // I call this my Beauty Lazy Susan! I love it so much. I realize this one may not be a must-have for everyone but it has been a godsend with my tiny bathroom. I have a little table in my bathroom where I put this, and it holds everything in a very orderly fashion.

      It’s honestly the most comfortable thing in the world!!!!! Like falling asleep in a cocoon!

  2. Amanda says 12.4.19

    Few things make me laugh harder than the display photos for bath trays… Yes, I do need my tablet, phone, the world’s tiniest glass of wine, multiple bottles of what appear to be hand soap, an unlit candle, a mystery box, and three loose roses!! The perfect bath experience!!

    • grace at the stripe says 12.4.19

      HAHA YOU ARE SO RIGHT.

      I stick to water, wine, and a book. Maybe I’ll get some roses for next time 😉

  3. Christine says 12.4.19

    I love Amazon!! Just *finally* received my ice roller last night! Going to order that make up organizer!!!! Thanks again for the great recs Grace!!! 🙂

    • grace at the stripe says 12.4.19

      Oh YAY!
      Also that was the thing I left off!!!!! My ice roller! Favorite purchase ever!

    I’m also a stomach sleeper who has had to change habits as my back gets older and crankier. Discovering pregnancy pillows was about the only good thing to come out of being pregnant (besides some kids that I like most of the time).

    I’m all set when I lie on my right, but I still fold my shoulder under when I lie on my left. I was in permanent low level pain in the front of my shoulder. I finally read somewhere that hanging from a pull up bar helps with that, so I reluctantly bought one, tried it for about a minute, before deciding it was a waste of time… and then realizing I was pain free. Hanging for just a short time solves my pain for weeks at a time. It’s insane.

      Oh wow that is so interesting! Thanks for sharing!

    • Cory says 12.5.19

      Whattttt?? I am definitely going to do this. Thanks for sharing!!

  5. Jules Buono says 12.4.19

    I’m checking out the bath mitt now. I also added the bath caddy to my gift guide for book lovers. Hello bath + books!!

  6. Mychal says 12.4.19

    I love this list! I just bought the scalp massager because TIBAL recommended it, too. Curious: where do you store your pregnancy pillow? Or do you just always leave it on your bed?

    Happy Holidays, Grace!

    • grace at the stripe says 12.4.19

      I put it in the closet. I’d never keep it on my bed – I mean I guess you could if you didn’t care/no one was going to see it, but it’s not pretty!

  7. Caroline says 12.4.19

    Some of my absolute favorite purchases have come from your Amazon shop! I’ve gifted a few already, and have more gifts arriving Friday from your list! Such great recommendations!

  8. Michelle says 12.4.19

    Have you ever tried the gravity blanket WITH the pregnancy pillow? I really want to know if they work together since both are on my list.

    • grace at the stripe says 12.4.19

      I have actually thought about this extensively. I think it would be great. I just need help. The blanket is heavy and I can’t get it on once I’m in the cocoon of the pregnancy pillow. So I need someone to tuck me in.

  9. Laura says 12.4.19

    About the pregnancy pillow – do you put it under the covers? And do you use a separate pillow for your head? I’m intrigued.

  10. Rachel says 12.4.19

    Oh you’ve just made my day! I’ve been looking at little shelves for our Echo in the kitchen but they were all tied to an outlet which didn’t work. That command shelf is genius! It’s the small wins sometimes!!

  11. Caroline Klobas says 12.4.19

    Nitpicky question… I’ve looked at that makeup organizer aka Beauty Lazy Susan before, but I was hesitant because you have to build the shelves. Does that not make it janky? I do like that you can customize the shelf and spacing, but I’m a little worried that that will make it less sturdy?

    Thanks!

    Sincerely,

    Overthinking Olivia

    • grace at the stripe says 12.5.19

      Haha. It’s an inexpensive product so the quality is not great,but it’s decently sturdy. I wouldn’t say it’s janky but I also wouldn’t say it’s the nicest thing in my bathroom? Does the job and keeps it all organized!

  12. Cory says 12.5.19

    Dammit Grace! I just added at least half of these to my Amazon cart. 🙂

  13. Natmari’s Corner says 12.7.19

    Yes thanks for sharing I’m looking for a steamer and wondered about the weighted blanket. I sleep on my side with my hands folded too.
