The perfect five-star rating, more than 13,795 reviews, and the fact that it’s a continual bestseller all prove that the Solo Stove Bonfire deserves to be on this list. It’s a pretty simple idea—a portable fire pit that’s smokeless and can be used everywhere from in your backyard, while camping and beyond. But, you know? Sometimes the best ideas are simple! Durable, log-friendly and made out of stainless steel, the Solo Stove Bonfire contains holes in specific areas of its double-wall structure, pulling in air from the bottom and feeding the heat and oxygen to the top. The result? Far less smoke than your average bonfire.
And people love it! One SoloStove.com reviewer wrote, “I love my new Solo Stove. It is compact, burns clean, cleans up in a breeze, has no campfire odor and comes with a weather proof cover that doubles as a storage/transport alternative. You will not regret investing in the Solo stove—no matter what size you choose.”
2. Apple AirTag
Apple enthusiasts and naysayers alike all seem relatively impressed with Apple AirTag. Like all new products, it’s got some kinks to work out, but that’s not stopping the people—and the Internet—from going ga-ga for this new and improved version of the Tile. With a 4.7-star rating and more than 44,000 reviews on Amazon, reviewers love the one-tap setup that connects AirTag to your iPhone or iPad. Also compatible with Siri, the AirTag takes advantage of Ultra Wideband technology for a more accurate location—no matter what you attach it to. Use it for wallet, keys, gym bag, purse or even your pet.
One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “Setup took seconds to get ready as the software is already on the current IOS. Each person in my family revived a tag, including the dog. Easy to hear and amazing GPS directions.”

One TheNorthFace.com reviewer wrote, “You can wear these out on the street, but I take such good care of them and I only wear them in the house. They are so comfortable and so cute. They look like little pockets of down on the shoe.”
The BSOD LED Magic Self-Charging Light Bulb with Remote hasn’t amassed thousands of reviews and ratings yet, but it’s certainly making its way up the charts.

With a wireless remote and smart technology that allows it to recharge, the BSOD LED Magic Self-Charging Light Bulb with Remote is a game-changer when you don’t have the wiring for the lighting you want.

One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “I love that this battery-operated light bulb can fit in the fixture of our chandelier. We didn’t want to hire an electrician to run electricity in our ceiling, so I was very happy to find this bulb. It can also be used as a regular lightbulb.”
Genius! This is one of those “I wish I thought of it myself” type innovations. The Stalwart Electric Blanket for Automobile takes a page out of the traditional heating blanket’s book, only uses a cigarette lighter adapter instead of a plug so that you can use it in the car. Long road trip? Cold morning commute to work? Is the heat in your vehicle slow to warm up? Just a cold person in general? Whatever your reasoning, the Stalwart Electric Blanket for Automobile will heat you in no time. A 96-inch cord so the people in the backseat can stay cozy, too.
It has more than 14,000 ratings on Amazon.com. One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “Love it!! I plug the blanket in and turn my car defrosters on in the morning, then once I’m done cleaning my car off, the blanket is nice and toasty! Once it’s warm enough, I just unplug. It definitely gets really hot. The longest I’ve had it plugged in is 10 minutes at most.”

One Amazon.com reviewer, “I bought this randomly at a baby boutique in a set, and after using it, I found out it is amazing. It can take almost any stain out.

One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “Summer Step Mats have been a saving grace for my family. I have struggled with removing snow for years. I have a bad back and cannot stand for long periods of time without horrible pain not to mention shoveling snow all winter… All the snow was gone and what truly surprised me the most was that it melted all the snow on the cement, too!”

I have a heel spur and planters fasciitis so regular flip flops bother me after wearing several hours; these do not.”
What’s so special about an Amazon sweatshirt, right? Wrong! The Hanes Men’s Pullover EcoSmart Hooded Sweatshirt has more than 130,000 reviews on Amazon.com. Available in a whole array of colors, buyers are obsessed with its fit and the fact that it doesn’t shrink in the wash. This Hanes hoodie features durable fleece and a double-needle cover-seamed neck. It is made with 5 percent polyester yarn created from recycled plastic bottles, so it’s good for the planet. But what people love most about it is how it’s pill-resistant. That means you can machine wash this hoodie repeatedly without it pilling or shrinking!
Don’t be fooled by “men’s” in the title. There are tons of women in the comments who purchase this sweatshirt.
One Amazon.com reviewer wrote, “This is EXACTLY what I look for EVERY fall/winter with no luck. Who knew I should have been checking the men’s section? My figure doesn’t get lost under this hoodie, but I can still wear it with no shapewear and be super comfortable. I recommend this hoodie to EVERYONE!”
