Mavogel Cotton Sleep Eye Mask
Mavogel’s eye mask, which got top marks in our extensive testing, features an ingenious nose wire that blocks out every last bit of light. That wire also helps keep the mask in place no matter how much you toss and turn.
Polywood Modern Adirondack Chair
Summer is nearly here, and you can tell by how much our readers love this bright and cheery Adirondack chair from Amazon. You can check out more splurge-worthy outdoor furniture from Amazon too.
Tonor TC30 USB Condenser Microphone
Whether you’re creating content, you’re gaming or you just want to sound better on Zoom, Tonor’s USB microphone makes for an excellent addition to your home office setup. Our reviewer raved about its versatility and fantastic sound quality, which is comparable to much more expensive models.
Apple AirTags, 4-Pack
Apple’s newly released trackers are well worth the hype, thanks to seamless iPhone pairing and Precision Finding technology that’ll make losing your keys a thing of the past.
Goshi Exfoliating Shower Towel
This Japanese towel lathers just like (and maybe even better than) a standard loofah while also gently exfoliating your skin right in the shower. Read our review of it here.
T-fal Ultimate Hard Anodized Nonstick Fry Pan With Lid
T-fal’s dishwasher-safe pan is our favorite nonstick pan around. Its depth, durable finish and even heating mean it can handle everything from scrambling eggs to searing steaks. Need something a little smaller? T-fal’s 10-inch pan ($34, originally $55.93; amazon.com) was another reader favorite this month.
Brita Standard Everyday Water Filter Pitcher
Brita’s pitcher is a classic for a reason: It made the best-tasting water by far in our testing of water filter pitchers. It’s also lightweight, pours well and looks good in the fridge.
Burt’s Bees Hand Repair Gift Set
This gift set comes with two rich, deeply moisturizing creams (one featuring shea butter, the other almond milk), plus a tin of lemon butter cuticle cream for healthier hands and nails.
Command Broom and Mop Grippers
Command’s grippers stick to the wall using no-damage strips, helping you save space by hanging mops and brooms vertically. (We’ve got more kitchen organization ideas for you here.)

Get your skin glowing with this top-rated mask made from clarifying Dead Sea mud and infused with nourishing aloe, vitamin E and jojoba oil.

Slice Ceramic Blade Safety Cutter
Slice’s safety cutter features a tiny, ultra-sharp ceramic blade that’s perfect for tricky packaging and delicate crafts projects. No wonder it’s one of our favorite Amazon buys under $15.
Jall Wooden Digital Alarm Clock
With its modern looks, bright display and loud-but-not-piercing alarm, Jall is our choice for the best alarm clock of 2021.

Avarelle Acne Pimple Patch
These bestselling hydrocolloid pimple patches soak up zit gunk overnight, making for a somewhat gross but extremely satisfying way to help clear up acne. (You can shop for more dermatologist-approved zit stickers here.)
Oyoco Patio Umbrella Light
Oyoco’s light clips directly around patio umbrella poles and also comes with two hooks that can be hung from tents or trees, making it a great companion for outdoor hangs after the sun sets. Check out more must-have Amazon outdoor furniture here.
