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.

If you’ve been shopping on Amazon for as long as I have, there’s a good chance you’ve already seen all of their most popular products. Cheeseboards, over-the-sink dish racks, veggie choppers — been there, bought that. But if you dig a little deeper, there’s a secret category filled with odd items that you probably haven’t seen before — and all of these weird products are absolutely worth buying.

I know what you’re thinking: “If these products are weird, then why are they worth my money?” That’s why I’ve made sure that every item on this list is helpful in some way. There are eyeliner stamps that deliver perfectly winged tips, sprays that eliminate unpleasant bathroom odors, and even a hamper that lets you separate dirty clothes from clean ones. Frankly, those eyeliner stamps are worth their weight in gold — and they’re absolutely worth grabbing instead of yet another expensive takeout meal. Keep scrolling for more.
