Okay, so maybe some of these items may not be deemed essential. BUT.... they are pretty cool and innovative!
Check out Katie's list of 5 useless, yet incredible things you can buy off of Amazon
1. Cars & Trucks Mini Waffle Maker
BUY HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Car-Mini-Waffle-Maker-Automobile/dp/B07N48DKVG/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=cars+and+trucks+waffle+maker&qid=1618829290&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUFVUlNaQlNNRVNPVUMmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTA1MzgzMjVVTkVXTTVHSjZXMjEmZW5jcnlwdGVkQWRJZD1BMDQyNTQ1ODNRV0c0WTQ1NjI1VUkmd2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl
If you have a child, or even a grown person in your life who loves cars or trucks, this is perfect. Plus, who doesn't love some fun shaped waffles to make eating breakfast just a tad bit more fun! This will run you about $40-50. But if trucks aren't your thing, there are so many other shaped waffle makers. Like the animal circus animal ones!
2. Ravioli Spoon Rest
Sure, there are a million and one spoon holders you could purchase to avoid getting spaghetti sauce all over your stove, but WHY would you ever buy any spoon rest but this one? It looks just like a ravioli and HOW FUN IS THAT?!

3. SauceMoto Sauce Holder For Your Car
Now personally, these may be my favorite items on the list. These are simple, genius and very affordable.
You can get a 4 pack for around $10. These little amazing clips are meant to clip into your air vents and can hold your favorite sauces and makes dipping-on-the-go SO MUCH easier!

4. The Mug With A Hoop
If you were raised like myself, you were told to never play with your food or drinks. But this item takes that rule right away by literally giving you a basketball hoop with your mug to toss your mini marshmallows. Hot Cocoa season is coming (eventually) and this is a must in my house. I feel like this would honestly be more fun for adults than it would be for kids.

5. Ceramic Shark and Foot Salt and Pepper Shaker Set
I can't think of any particular reason you would need these, but I honestly can't think of a single reason that you don't need them either. I mean, how fun are these and they'd certainly make guests in your home laugh. I love a good whimsical salt and pepper shaker! As a Floridian, I get an extra kick (no pun intended) out of these!
