10 Gadgets You Can Get On Amazon That’ll Bring Your Dorm To The Next Level

Gadgets are always helpful when we move into our dorm rooms, and where would we college students be without Amazon? That $50 prime membership is worth its weight in gold (anyone else planning on watching Corpse Bride tonight)? As a huge go-to for toiletries, school supplies, and even bulk foods, the mega-corporation’s already exceeded our expectations, but they continue to blow us away with these genius gizmos that you (and your room mates) will love. Here are the 10 gadgets that you can get on Amazon that’ll bring your dorm to the next level.

1). A Grown-Up Night Light

This is one of our favorite gadgets for controlling our somewhat grown-up fear of the dark. Regardless of whether your phobia of a pitch black bedroom or just your need for a little illumination during those late-night bathroom trips, this LED night light has got your back. The soft, warm glow of this guy is bright enough to light up any area that may need it but won’t disrupt your roomie’s much-needed sleep. And no need to worry about the planet, because this light only turns on when it senses movement, and then turns off half a minute later Plus, it’s self-adhesive, so you don’t need to make a separate trip to Walmart.

2). A Memory Foam Reading Pillow

Love memory foam but need the support of a desk chair? These guys are perfect for those all-nighters when you’re too sleepy to study at the school library but need to sit up and read Wurthering Heights. The memory foam keeps you nice and comfy, and the support foam keeps your back straight so you don’t have to worry about it. There’s even a handle on top to make it super easy to plop it in the car before moving all your stuff from home to your new dorm. One of these pillows goes for about $50 a pop, but you’ll be saving yourself trips to the chiropractor! One Amazon customer even said of this exact Linenspa model, “Hands down the best one (reading pillows) I’ve ever tried and I’m glad I spent a bit more to get the right thing.”

3). A Multi-Purpose Modern Farmhouse Blanket

Okay, so this is more of a piece of decor than a gadget but it’s still amazing! For seventeen dollars, you could get your paws on a one hundred-percent cotton throw with a beautiful, modern pattern. On its own, this throw will add life to any dull bed or couch, and can be used as whenever you need an extra layer of warmth. And it’s relatively low-maintenance, too- as long as you machine wash separate colors on cold and tumble-dry, the intricate tassels won’t be going anywhere. This thing is so pretty, you may just be tempted to have a photoshoot using it as a prop (or just a fall picnic with your friends). The durability promises years of wear, so you may just be holding on to this throw for years. Comes in three colors.

4). A Pint-Sized Humidifier

Could your room mates and yourself use a little detox from the city air? Why not come home to this mini humidifier? This little gadget is shaped like a lightbulb and has two cute little palm trees inside of it. Set-up is really simple, and the humidifier can be plugged in any USB chord, as you would a smartphone. Next, just fill with water and your favorite essential oils and get ready to relax.

5). A Felt Bedside Caddy

This four-and-a-half star Amazon gem just may be the twenty-first century solution to all of our small-space woes. With one large pocket and three smaller pockets, this caddy can go on your bedrail, headboard, or even your desk, and its sturdy yet soft design means it won’t poke you if you *accidentally* doze off during an essay assignment. Plus, you can even put your electronics in it, so you can listen to the next Rachel Hollis podcast while waking up slowly (since your iPod can go in the pocket, your earbuds can be easily attained from it). Just secure where necessary and place under your bed whenever you don’t need it.

6). A Marble Mortar And Pestle

Whether or not your dorm has its own kitchen, this mortar and pestle set will blow your friends away. This set (imported from Japan) is not only top-quality, but its beautiful black and white marble design goes with nearly any design palette. And while owning one of these is pretty impressive, cleaning it up after use is a walk in the park. The non-porous design allows for a simple hand wash and dry. Our suggestion? Whip up an amazing guacamole in front of guests for a taco party. Can we come, too?

7). A Handheld Clothes Steamer

This one isn’t as fun, but it’s an investment worth its weight in gold. And you’ll be surprised just how quickly and well it works- just place a wrinkly shirt on a hanger, place the steamer around it, and watch the crinkles disappear. Let’s face it-even on our off days, it’s great to look put-together. What’s more is that the steamer can also act as a makeshift sterilizer or humidifier- so you can keep the common cold at pay whenever the dorm gets chilly (and in case the mini humidifier from before just isn’t doing the trick). Just make sure not to hurt yourself, steam burns are not fun at all.

8). Bamboo Charcoal Odor Eliminator Bags

Those late-night gym seshes with your friends are a great idea- but they can often leave you (and your dorm) smelling less than your best. The solution? Denim-colored sachets containing bamboo and charcoal as natural odor absorbents. Just stick them wherever needed and put them in soil (they’re biodegradable) once you’ve used them up. One $14 dollar pack contains one large bag, two medium bags, and four smaller bags, each lasting up to four years. Is there really anything you can’t do with bamboo?
