Ah, Amazon. Between its competitive pricing, near-endless selection, and — arguably most importantly — the free two-day Prime shipping, there’s no question that the online retailer has completely revolutionized the way we shop. However, while the site’s search engine is great when you’re looking for something specific, it’s easy to miss the most exciting new products on Amazon if you don’t know what you’re looking for.

At first, being blissfully unaware of products you didn't even know existed might not seem like such a bad thing — after all, most of us already have more than enough items on our shopping lists as it is. However, keeping tabs on the best new products hitting Amazon’s virtual shelves does have some worthwhile perks. Since Amazon is at the cutting edge of online retail, ordering an exciting new product before it’s discovered by the masses can often mean you’ll catch a great deal before prices begin to soar. Plus, some of the new products on this list have genuinely impressive benefits that can help make your life more organized, less stressful, or at least a bit more enjoyable.

To save you the trouble of scouring through hundreds of pages of products in search of hidden gems, this editor-curated roundup features 50 new products that are bound to go viral on Amazon soon. Not only are most items eligible for Prime shipping, but everything that’s featured costs just $50 or less. Just don’t wait too long to hit the “Buy Now” button — it’s unlikely these prices will stay this low for very long.
