65 cheap things with near-perfect reviews that keep selling out on Amazon

We only recommend products we love and that we think you will, too. We may receive a portion of sales from products purchased from this article, which was written by our Commerce team.

You know that moment when you find a gift for someone, but you really want to buy it for yourself too? The best-case scenario is that the item is budget-friendly enough to buy two. Pretty much all these cheap things with near-perfect reviews fall into that category, so it’s no wonder they keep selling out on Amazon.

Cozy home items are always an easy go-to, like the weighted blanket I found that comes with a soft, washable duvet cover in lots of colors and patterns, so it actually looks nice and matches your bedroom aesthetic. Wrap up in that and set up movie night with the phone screen magnifier that enlarges the screen by up to four times. If you're a more practical shopper, I found a key chain that has a Lightning USB cable and a bottle opener, so you can always charge your phone or crack open a soda. Reviewers also love these reusable and compostable dishcloths for post-dinner cleanups and these LED chopsticks that look like lightsabers.

Grab these cheap, highly rated things before they sell out, and with prices like these, be sure to grab two of everything, so that no one has to share.
