By Braelyn Wood

While millennials tend to get a bad wrap, it's hard to deny that we're pretty ingenious when it comes to finding innovative ways to solve problems. That's why it's always fun to check out all the weird products on Amazon that are popular with millennials — you never know what life-changing tool or gadget you might stumble upon.

The busy schedules and limited funds synonymous with Generation Y has led to the invention of thousands of brilliant products — many made by millennials themselves, aiming to eliminate everyday dilemmas and make life run just a little bit smoother. Additionally, many millennials are actively searching for ways to promote environmentally-friendly and ethically responsible products. That means many trending products are reusable, have multiple functions, stop unnecessary waste, and, whenever possible, put an emphasis on natural ingredients.

While most products that go viral are discovered through social media, Amazon gathers them all under one roof so shoppers can easily access the latest craze. Whether you're looking for a way to achieve perfect beach waves while you sleep or want to prevent your avocado from going brown, all it takes is a quick Prime purchase.

But with so many options out there, finding the products that are actually useful — not just trendy — can be difficult. To guide you, check out the 23 of the weirdest products that are trending with millennials on Amazon, below.
