The world is changing fast, and thanks to awesome things like science and technology and nerdy high school kids, that means we’re all going to be looking for cool, weird gadgets to fill out our lives (or make them easier) in the coming year. Check out these 20 items that are already showing up on people’s 2017 wishlists – and just try not to add them to your own!

#20. Packing cubes

Organize your suitcase for your next trip (they’re especially good for making sure you don’t forget anything, once you’ve got the hang of it) with these stylish and useful cubes.

#19. Rabbit corkscrew

If you haven’t opened a bottle of wine with one of these, you’ve got to try it. Seriously, this corkscrew will change your life – in a very lovely, Pinot-y sort of way.

#18. Essential Oil Diffuser

I know, I know, you can’t get that certain friend to shut up about essential oils…but you know you’re at least a little curious. The truth is that people have been using plant extracts to ease and cure ailments for centuries, so there’s probably something to it, right? Might as well give it a shot, anyway – it certainly couldn’t hurt!

#17. Bluetooth-Enabled Instant Pot

This 7 in 1 tool will make it so you don’t hate cooking dinner. Promise.

#16. Roomba

With the popularity of hardwood floors comes the annoying truth that hardwood floors are a challenge to keep clean (especially if you own a pet or three!). The Roomba vacuums FOR you. What could be better than that?

#15. Alexa

Whether you go with the Echo or the smaller, less sophisticated Dot, the idea of having a personal assistant likely appeals to you. And if it doesn’t, I’m guessing you haven’t thought about (or read up on) all of the ways she integrates with the devices you already use. Come on, she’s practically JARVIS!

#14. Dog Camera

You can laugh all you want, but everyone I’ve ever met who has a dog is at least this obsessed with them. Now all you pet owners can alleviate some of your guilt at leaving him alone all day while you’re out earning that treat money!

#13. Durable French Press

The days of the Keurig are over – people have woken up and realized that coffee can be so much more delicious (not to mention cheaper). This French Press not only does all of that, but it also has a double wall to keep coffee hot longer, too.

#12. Bathroom Counter Organizer

Who doesn’t like to feel more organized and in control? No one. This great, two piece organizer is reasonable and will make your bathroom counters feel a lot less cluttered.

#11. Power Bank

One device that can charge all of my other devices when I’m traveling? *grabby hands*

#10. Electric Callus Remover

Sure, getting a pedicure at a salon is nice, but the truth is sometimes life gets in the way – you don’t want to drag the baby, you’re short on cash, or it’s winter and you’re in full hermit status – and being able to keep your feet smooth and cared for at home is a pretty sweet deal.

#9. A Drone

No matter what your plans are for 2017, a drone could be part of them. And if you’re someone who’s into making and posting videos, it’s a must-have.

#8. Bluetooth Headphones

Thanks to the jack-less iPhone 7, we now have real quality options when it comes to wireless headphones – so why not take advantage? They’re especially great for working out, holding the baby, and all those other times getting tangled in cords just won’t do.

#7. GoPro

GoPros are getting better with each generation. Case in point: this one has no housing and is completely waterproof. So go ahead, jump on the bandwagon.

#6. Nerdwax

This handy-dandy (but sort of weird and totally unexpected) little item keeps your glasses from slipping down your nose. Truly.

#5. Tile Mate

Are you (or your husband) always forgetting where you left your keys? Enter this bluetooth tracker – and your sanity.

#4. Himalayan Salt Lamp

Science is just starting to understand all of the benefits of these little beauties, but two big ones are purified air and the lovely, soft ambient glow (as opposed to the much harsher light of normal lamps).

#3. Quality Facial Care

After you’ve had your home pedicure, why not give your face a spa treatment too? You only get one skin, after all (for now, at least) so why not take care of it!

#2. Eyelash Growth Serum

This fun little product uses peptides and apple stem cells (among other things) to stimulate eyelash growth. No more being jealous of that long-lashed baby in your life!

#1. Laptop Mobile Work Station

Um, comfortably use your laptop in bed? YES, PLEASE.
