35 Best Reviewed Amazon Products for a Lazy Day
We spend so much time grinding at work, pushing ourselves with passion projects, and pursuing hobbies that all we want to do when we do finally get some time off is rest. Admit it! There’s nothing better than waking up on Saturday morning with nothing on the to-do list. You can catch up on the shows you’ve been missing, play video games, nap, transform your bathroom into a day spa — the world is your oyster! But then, in comes the chores list — or worse yet, plans — to bring us down. Sigh.
When you’re dedicated to having an uninterrupted day of R&R, these are the products you need to have on hand. From cozy sherpa hoodies and spa pillows, to back massagers and slow cookers, these are some of Amazon’s best reviewed products for a lazy day. These couch potato-approved finds are budget friendly, multipurpose, time-saving, and will help you keep your home environment low maintenance.
Cuddle Up with this Body Pillow
This memory foam body pillow was designed with pregnant women in mind, but let’s be real — with a fun pillowcase, it’s the perfect cuddle buddy! If you’re a side sleeper, even better; it will help relieve joint pain in your back, hips, and knees. As you can see from the image reviews, even pets will like it so much they’ll try to steal it from you! Over 22,000 buyers loved this product, and we think you will too.
Get Cozy in the Sherpa Wearable Blanket
Shark Tank famously produces some of the most memorable, useful products, and this item is no exception. This sherpa hoodie is the ideal couch potato uniform, as any one of the 94,000 reviewers will tell you. Instead of laying in bed all day, this sweater allows you to essentially take the bed with you. The double layering also makes it super warm, so you shouldn’t need too many other layers, even in winter.
A Mug Warmer for Your Desk
If you’re a slow sipper or a six-cups-a-day drinker, this product is definitely for you. Why get up to reheat your morning coffee or tea when you could do it from wherever you want (including the couch)? This best-selling gadget can reheat any beverage in less than 2 minutes and it’s only $20! Unlike other models, you can use it with pretty much any mug too, so you don’t need to worry about breaking the precious proprietary one.
You Won't Be Able to Leave this Bean Bag Chair
First of all, this large bean bag chair is a heck of a deal at only $150 (full price). Most of the adult bean bag chairs on Amazon run upwards of $200, and on other sites they’re even more expensive. Sorry, but we’re not going to pay furniture prices for a sack full of fluff! This particular bean bag is actually filled with memory foam for an extra supportive sit. It also comes with a water resistant cover, which is key to keeping the memory foam dry. Pick from 30 fun colors!
The Cutest Cat Ramen Bowl
Kawaii fans, we’ve found your next obsession. This adorable ramen bowl comes with a matching lid, matching chopsticks, and a matching spoon! At 34.5 oz., it’s bigger than your average ramen bowl, so you can fit more delicious soup in there. The best part? It’s microwave and dishwasher safe. It comes with some other unique features too: use the lid as a bowl or a phone stand!
Take a Nap Wherever You are with these Sleep Headphones
You’ve probably seen this headband all over TikTok. We can’t blame you if you’re hesitant to buy it, but over 44,000 buyers really loved it. Reviewers said the headphones last through the night easily, produce decent sound quality, and are surprisingly comfortable for side sleeping. The sweatband can be washed, just make sure you take the headphones out first!
Treat Yourself to these Fancy 24K Gold Eye Masks
A mental health day means it’s time for the home spa. Grab some of these eye masks, throw on a pair of moisturizing socks, and put on your favorite meditation music! These patches are packed with vitamins and nourishing ingredients to brighten your skin, so you can head back to the office the next day with an extra pep in your step. The gold makes this treatment feel extra fancy too!
Throw Dinner into this Slow Cooker and Forget About It
Tired of meal prepping? If you don’t want to spend anymore time on your feet than necessary, a crock pot is just what you need. Chop up some veggies, protein, filler, and throw it all in the slow cooker — it’ll be ready in about 5 to 8 hours! With a 7 quart capacity, you should be able to feed up to nine people (which will come in handy for holidays).
Only the Softest, Sturdiest Slippers for You
We picked these slippers for their durable, indoor-outdoor design and supportive memory foam insoles. Slipper socks are super fun…until you have to take out the trash or run after your dog that bolted out into the street. These are just as comfy as fuzzy socks, but you don’t need to worry about slipping and sliding around on your vinyl floors. It’s hard to believe these slippers are only $24, right?
Oil Diffusers are a Must-Have on Sick Days
Sick days suck, but at least you get to stay home and watch your favorite childhood movies! When the time comes, you’ll want to have one of these diffusers on hand. The moisture helps open up your sinuses; it can make the difference between being able to breathe through your nose at night and being completely stuffed up. Outside of sick days, it also makes a nice aromatherapy accessory for your bathroom or living room.
This Vegetable Dicer will Save You Time
This is all-in-one veggie dicer we’ve all been waiting for! This vegetable slicer kit comes with eight different blades, including blades for dicing, slicing, and grating. The dicer works like a giant hole-puncher; add the veggie, press down, and the diced pieces fall right into the included container below. The slicing and grating tools go on top. It can all go into the dishwasher too, so you don’t need to worry about picking bits of food out of the tiny cracks and crevices. Grab it now while it’s on sale!
Control All of Your Favorite Apps with Chromecast
This device is ideal for those without smart TVs or those who want to easily control everything from one remote. It has almost every entertainment app you could possibly want on it, including Twitch. If you have the Twitch app on your phone, you can even participate in chat while you watch. Chromecast is also a nice gadget to have when relatives come to visit; it makes it super easy to display photos and videos from your smartphone.
Enjoy a Longer Soak with this Bath Pillow
A bubble bath is all about comfort, and you’re missing out if you don’t have a comfy pillow for “me time”. This ergonomic pillow is made with extra suction cups to help it stay in place, breathable fabric to keep it cool, and a quick-drying design to prevent mildew. You can even throw it in the washing machine!
Ditch Your Fly Swatter for this Clever Indoor Insect Trap
The last thing you want to do when you’re relaxing is get up and deal with pests. The cat may be unavoidable, but flies are, thanks to this next-level indoor fly trap. It’s designed to catch moths, mosquitos, gnats, and fruit flies using a combination of enticing traps. The big light draws them in, and when they get too close, they get sucked in. The flypaper traps them for good. Pretty advanced tech, right?
Avoid Unwanted Guests with a Driveway Alarm
The Ring app is nice, but it doesn’t give you much warning when guests arrive. This driveway sensor has a .25 mile range, so you can detect visitors well before they reach your doorstep. That should give you enough time to hide unmentionables, shove your clothing pile into the closet, or hide yourself if you don’t want visitors. However you use this driveway sensor, may it help you protect your peace.
This Sleeveless Romper is the Perfect Lazy Day Outfit
Yes, you will have to take the whole thing off to pee, but this low-maintenance outfit is so worth it. Thousands of women rated this one-piece 5-stars on Amazon for its cute, comfy design. You can wear it out, but users liked it best as an easy at-home fit. Wear it on laundry day, underneath your giant sherpa sweater, over your swim suit, or while you wait for your body lotion to dry.
A Sofa Side Table for Easy Access
A fabric remote caddy isn’t for everyone. Let’s be honest: this sofa end table is way classier anyway. The 23 in. height is perfect for matching up with the height of your couch armrest, and it’s so light even your 93-year-old grandma can lift it with ease. If you don’t like the gray wood-like finish, you have five other colors to choose from! It can hold up to 50 lbs., so it can definitely handle all of your lazy day must-haves.
Meditate with this Lavender Eye Mask
This mask looks so cozy! It’s weighted with compression beads and stuffed with lavender to provide a therapeutic, soothing experience. The inner bag can also be heated or refrigerated; a heated mask will improve circulation, while a cold mask can help with inflammation. Here are a few more perks: these masks are eye doctor approved and machine washable.
Mom and Baby Can Nap Together with this Bedside Bassinet
It’s an undisputed fact that new parents are perpetually exhausted. We’re happy to tell you that there’s never been a better product to accommodate both sleepy parent and needy baby.

Use The Clapper to Turn Your Lights On
You’ve probably heard of The Clapper, but did you know you can actually buy one yourself for less than $30 on Amazon? It looks like a normal outlet, but you actually plug it into one of your own existing outlets. It uses a tiny speaker to listen for claps, shutting the power on or off when needed. Best of all, there are eight customized models of this, including designs based on The Child from Mandalorian, Darth Vader from the Star Wars franchise, and even famous painter Bob Ross.
Unwind with this Relaxing Bath Soak Set
If you want to stock up on bath salts, these 3 lb. bags are the way to go. One bag is scented with eucalyptus and spearmint for a cleansing, soothing vibe; the other is imbued with lavender for deep relaxation. The epsom salts are loaded with magnesium, which helps soothe sore muscles. Fun fact: epsom salts are also a good way to avoid foot fungi, like athlete’s foot, by keeping them clean and dry.
Let This Robot Vacuum Cleaner Do the Work for You
Looking for a Roomba, but don’t want to shell out $300? Check out this buyer favorite budget option! It’ll cost you less than half of what you’d spend on a brand-name version, and it’ll save you the labor of manually vacuuming your floors. “I have MS, so housework of any kind is a struggle for me, especially sweeping and vacuuming,” reviewer RedmondGem80 wrote. “It’s been a godsend for me, and at only $100, it’s absolutely worth every penny.”
This Full Seat Back Massager Costs Less than $80!
Massage chairs typically cost between $500 and $3,000, depending on the model. This $70 massage seat cushion may not be the lazy boy style chair you envisioned, but it’ll let you enjoy a heated massage from home. It includes a memory foam cushion for a comfortable sit, five different massage modes, and an auto shut-off timer. Over 10,000 shoppers said they loved it!

Buyers said they were blown away by the quality of this product, and we think you will be too. According to the seller, these headphones were tested 100,000 times in different environments to get the noise cancellation just right. With increased frequency ranges, 40 hours of playtime, and comfy memory foam ear cups, these headphones are some of the best available.
The Remote Caddy You Never Knew You Needed
This wall-mounted remote holder is going to save you so much time hunting for your missing remotes. You keep hoping they’ll show up on the coffee table or in between the cushions, but somehow they keep finding more inventive hiding spots. Depending on how complex your entertainment system setup is, you may not be able to fit in all of your remotes, but it can definitely accommodate the most important ones.
A 12-Pack of Instant Ramen for an Easy Meal
A bulk pack of instant ramen for $6 — what’s not to love? Thank goodness Amazon added food to their catalog. With their high sodium levels, we don’t recommend these ramen packets for everyday consumption, but they do make a soothing snack on a rainy day. Even if you don’t like the seasoning, the noodles make a fast miso soup add-in. Bonus: They’re SNAP eligible, so you might not even need to pay anything for them.
Grab this Dry Shampoo When You're in a Rush
No time for a shower? No problem! This $11 OGX Extra Strength Dry Shampoo is here to save the day. It’s a fraction of the cost of other top-rated dry shampoos, and customers love it just as much. Just read what J Isaac had to say about it: “This is my go-to, five days a week, dry shampoo. It is easy to use, doesn’t leave a white mist on your hair, and smells good.” Bonus: the Argan oil adds moisture, shine, and smoothness to your hair.

Save Time Cleaning with this Splatter Screen
Why spend your weekend scrubbing when you could be binge watching your favorite anime? Stove-top stains can be especially unforgiving after they’ve been cooked on — it takes serious elbow grease to clean then. Why not just avoid the whole ordeal by buying this splatter screen? It fits over frying pans up to 11.5 in. wide, so it should fit most skillets. Buyers also said it doubles as a strainer and a cookie cooling rack, which is exactly the kind of multipurpose item a low-maintenance kitchen needs.
Hair Thickening Spray for Instant Volume
Sometimes the effort of styling hair is just not worth it. Especially with straight hair, the curls just end up falling out anyway. With this thickening spray, you can achieve a blowout look and add volume without even touching a blow dryer. In case you’re wary, buyers said it smells amazing, made their hair feel soft, isn’t sticky, and does exactly what it’s advertised to do. It also comes from a reputable, much-loved beauty brand.
This Milk Frother is Perfect for Instant Coffee
When you don’t have time for a Starbucks run, some home-brewed espresso, or latte foam art from the cafe down the street, grab this mini mixer to whip up a cup of instant coffee. You can use it with any liquid, so it’s a good go-to for blending soups, whipping eggs, mixing pudding, or slicing through the dry chunks in your matcha.
Try a Massage Gun on Sore Muscles
Your relaxing day off is no good if you’re too sore to enjoy it. If the heated back massager isn’t doing enough for you, you’ll want to upgrade to this percussion massager.

A Teeth Comb Headband to Keep Hair out of Your Face

No more adjusting a ponytail on the treadmill; no more weird lines; no more bangs in face! These teeth comb headbands are also a great find for skincare time; they’ll help tamp down on baby hairs and flyaways.
