20 Things So Amazing You Won’t Believe They’re From Walmart
America's favorite superstore is home to some seriously amazing gems.
There are a few reasons you might call Walmart amazing. For one, the savings superstore has great generic products. It’s also the perfect one-stop shop for cheap electronics. But, as it turns out, Walmart has also got an assortment of truly innovative and beautiful items too. From modish modern benches and cozy duvets to simple but sentimental bracelets and rustic kitchen accessories, these are the most incredible items you can buy on a Walmart shopping spree.
A Glamorous Antique Brass Chandelier

MōDRN is the latest line of furniture and home accessories from Walmart. Within the chic collection, you’ll find things like the above brass chandelier, a stunning architectural design that’s just as much a piece of art as it is a lighting fixture.
A Fun, Floral Electric Kettle
$35$20; buy now at walmart.com
Why settle for a run-of-the-mill kettle when you can buy one at Walmart that’s adorned with a fun design? The retailer has an entire collection of exclusive Hamilton Beach products designed in collaboration with The Pioneer Woman, all of which feature unique, flowery patterns.
Outdoor Lantern String Lights
$18$16; buy now at walmart.com
Now that it’s almost warm enough to step outside and enjoy the sunshine, it’s time to spruce up your backyard for all those BBQs. And fortunately, upgrading your outdoor space doesn’t have to mean emptying your savings account. At Walmart, there are many patio and garden items that are both cost-friendly and tasteful. These Better Homes & Gardens Cage Lantern String Lights, for instance, are just $16 per 10-foot string—but when they’re all hung up and lit, they’ll have your backyard looking like a million bucks.
A Coca-Cola Can Mini Fridge

Shaped like an actual can of Coke with the ability to hold up to eight cans or four bottles at any time, this mini fridge is just as much a piece of retro-inspired art as it is a functioning small appliance.
An Embroidered 5-Piece Duvet Set
$90$70; buy now at walmart.com
Any duvet set you buy for your bed should be soft, comfortable, warm, and stylish. What it doesn’t need to be, however, is expensive—and it won’t be if you choose to buy a comforter combo from Walmart’s Hotel Style collection. The embroidered cotton bedding above, for example, is sold in a set that comes with a duvet, two shams, and two decorative pillows, all for just $70 on sale.
The Beloved Beautyblender Sponge
$20$17; buy now at walmart.com
Walmart’s beauty aisles are lined with bargain-brand buys, many of which you’ll also find in high-end stores like Sephora and Ulta. The best part? While Sephora and Ulta seldom have sales, Walmart is constantly offering cosmetics and other products at prices that won’t break the bank. This beauty blender sponge, for instance—a cult favorite in the cosmetology community—sells for $17 at Walmart, compared to $20 at Ulta, Sephora, and Nordstrom.
A Handy Hydration Backpack

If the whole purpose of being one with nature is to abandon consumerism, then why should you spend more than you have to on your outdoor gear? This $29 hydration backpack is just as good as any other $100 one on the market, and customers rave that it’s “perfect” for hiking or for “a day in the wood[s].”
A Mid-Century Modern Bench
$219; buy now at walmart.com
Elevate the elegance of your entryway with this mid-century modern bench. Not only is it a place where guests can sit and take off their shoes, but it’s also a place to store various tchotchkes and even set up a luminous lamp or a vibrant vase. At just under $220, this side table–bench hybrid is a total steal.
A Pretty Pour-Over Coffee Maker
$32; buy now at walmart.com
There’s no need to fork out major dough for an over-the-top coffee maker. All you really need for a good cup o’ Joe at home is a simple pour-over machine—something like this fairly priced glass one, by Bodum. In fact, customers who’ve switched from an espresso machine to the pour-over note that they have “far more control over the brew,” plus that the product is “far more sanitary than the electric coffee makers.”
A Decorative Mirror Set
$17$15; buy now at walmart.com
Basic in their design but beautiful in their simplicity, these tiny circular mirrors can blend seamlessly into any type of decor. And at just $15 for all three mirrors, you’re going to have a difficult time finding other accent pieces with price tags that are anywhere near as good.
A Whimsical Cookbook Holder
$22$20; buy now at walmart.com

A Rainbow Flask Bracelet
$28; buy now at walmart.com
The only thing more convenient than a flask is a flask that you can wear around your wrist—and believe it or not, that’s a product that actually exists. Yes, one of the many amazing trinkets you can pick up at Walmart is none other than a Rainbow Bracelet Flask that can hold up to four ounces of the liquid of your choice. (The Best Life choice? Tequila!) Sure, it won’t be the fanciest piece of jewelry you own, but it will definitely be the most functional.
Fun Temporary Tattoos

An Interlocking Love Bracelet

Meaningful mementos don’t have to cost an arm and a leg. This Hallmark bracelet celebrating life and love, for instance, is under $20 at Walmart, but its symbolic interlocking circle design is just as sentimental and significant as any Tiffany locket.
Decorative Driftwood Wallpaper
$30$21 per roll; buy now at walmart.com
Even if you’re just renting your place, there are ways to cover up your plain white walls without getting in trouble with the landlord. This decorative driftwood peel and stick wallpaper, for example, looks just as good as any professionally plastered wallpaper or paint job—but while paint and wallpaper are permanent, this vinyl wall design can be removed whenever you need it to be.
A Fruity Dinnerware Set
