Another year, another roundup! I’ve compiled a list of my favorite Amazon purchases of 2023, to inspire what you might want to purchase in 2024. Categories include everything from Kindle accessories, jewelry, clothing, and cleaning products. If there’s any products you don’t see here that you’d like recommendations for, just let me know!
This remote control page turner for kindle has been a game changer. It allows me to keep my hands warm & cozy under a blanket, or in a comfortable position in bed, while continuing to read on my Kindle. This year almost all of the books I’ve read have been on my Kindle through Libby, so this device has really come in handy.
If you’re going to get the remote control page turner, you obviously need the tablet stand holder to go with it. I use this to clip my Kindle onto the edge of my coffee table, only my bed, or onto any other surface that’ll hold it in the perfect position for reading. I’ve also found that I read faster & longer when using these products. Probably because it’s just so easy to keep going when only the Kindle remote is in your hand!
This year I upgraded to a wireless keyboard & mouse for my home desktop. I didn’t want to spend a ton of money, since it wasn’t a need, but it’s the ultimate convenience. This one comes at a great price point. It let’s me put the keyboard & mouse in whatever comfy position I’d like. Right now I actually use my mouse on a bookshelf positioned to my right instead of the desk! I’d have never been able to do that with a wired mouse.
If you’re not familiar with AirFly yet, it’s a device that plugs into an aux port to allow you to connect your wireless headphones like AirPods. It’s great for use while traveling so you can use the plane’s in-flight entertainment system or at other locations which still utilize the aux port like the gym. There are a few different models but this one had all the features I was looking for at a great price.
When iPhones switched to utilizing USB-C chargers this year, I didn’t see the point in getting a wired USB-C charger just for my car. Instead I purchased this wireless MagSafe charger that mounts to the car’s vents. Don’t have an iPhone? No problem! It also comes with metal rings you can attach to any phone that doesn’t have MagSafe so that this charger can work for anyone with wireless charging! This has been so convenient since I drive an older car that doesn’t have CarPlay. I can now have Waze up on my phone for navigation at a convenient position!
This Anker Power Bank was one of the only Prime Day purchases I made this year. I’d still purchase it at full price though! It has both USB-C and older USB ports, supports fast charging, & it’s display tells you exactly how much charge is left & what the current charging rates are. It’s been so convenient to see how different cords or different configurations effect charging speed & time.
When I moved offices this year, I immediately noticed the fluctuating temperatures, so I went on the hunt for the perfect fan & heater combo. I found this one & it’s worked so well that one of my coworkers purchased one too!
Looking for a Magnetic Portable Charger that snaps right to your MagSafe iPhone? This option from Anker (my favorite company for charging solutions) is less than half the price of Apple’s. This is the battery backup I carry every day in case my phone needs a boost when I’m out & about.
Women’s fashion, beauty, & accessories
I purchased these Leopard Print Palazzo Pants after hip surgery as a loose fitting option to wear to the office. I’ve loved them so much that I continue to wear them! They’re so comfortable & so easy to style. They also come in several different color options.
Of all the Amazon jewelry I’ve ever purchased, I think this one is my favorite. I’ve won this snake chain necklace every day, without taking it off, since purchasing it & it hasn’t dimmed or tarnished at all. It’s perfect to layer with other popular styles. Try adding other types of chains with it or a pendant necklace like I have!
I continued to build my at-home gel nails kit this year by purchasing this white chrome nail powder. Chrome nails were so trendy this summer & it was so incredibly easy to replicate at home. I prefer it over white gel, but you can use it over any gel color you’d like for different styles.
Everyone knows that nasty feeling of water dripping down to your elbows when you try to wash your face. No matter what you do, you cant stop it… until now. These face washing wrist bands are so simple, I don’t know why I didn’t think of them sooner! I purchased this set to keep one set for myself & give the others to friends & family.
Months ago I went searching for a substitution for the $30+ sleek spray that was popular at the time. I found it in this $5 product! I spray this Sleek It Iron Straight Heatspray on my wet hair before drying it with my Revlon One-Step hairdryer brush. The results are incredible! Not only does it dry straighter, but it’s providing heat production & my hair doesn’t seem to be as affected by humidity throughout the day.
