Ah, Amazon. The place where you can add almost anything—like low-maintenance plants and "pancake pillows" —to your cart. There are millions of items available, and new products are added every day. And while we love the massive assortment, it can feel overwhelming to sort through. 

To make shopping easier, we compiled our favorite recent finds in one easy-to-browse list. Our editors shared 12 hidden gems they discovered and loved in March 2021 spanning home, kitchen, beauty, fashion, and pets. And here's the best part: Everything is under $25. 

Editor-Loved Amazon Finds: 

Trying to relax? Take a cue from the editor who found these aromatherapy shower steamers, which come in 13 scents, for unwinding at the end of the day. Beauty finds, like frizz-reducing scrunchies, decadent body cream, and a two-in-one lash primer and mascara, will make getting ready feel a little more indulgent. 

Our team raved about several handy kitchen tools too, like this nifty reviewer-loved scraping spoon. The $10 device combines several smart features, like measuring lines, a sit-up design to prevent it from soiling countertops, non-stick material, and a spatula-like shape. It's so helpful for cooking and baking that you may want to grab a few.

A large but lightweight water bottle also made the list, for anyone trying to increase their water intake as warm weather sets in. The BPA-free bottle is dishwasher-safe, which saves cleaning time. Plus, the eco-friendly piece will help you cut back on single-use plastic bottles.

Browse the rest of our recent discoveries below. They're all Prime-eligible, so you can enjoy these neat Amazon finds in practically no time.
