Let's be honest: Target is the place where budgets go to die. But while the dollar section is tempting (step away from the miniature succulent planters you definitely don't need), there are some things that are more worth your money than others. Here are the top 20 things you can get at Target, including some of our favorite kitchen and tech accessories.

1. This new and improved Instant Pot

Best things you can buy at Target: Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus.

Instant Pot stole our heart with the Ultra and now the popular brand has done it again with the Duo Evo Plus. Not only does it have an updated display along with an automatic steam release valve, but it also has nine different smart cooking programs, including sous vide.

Best things to buy at Target: Gravity Blanket.

If you haven't jumped on the weighted blanket bandwagon, you might as well the next time you're at Target. There you can find our experts' number one pick, the Gravity Blanket. Not too heavy and not too light, it provides the perfect amount of pressure and has a velvety exterior you'll love snuggling up in.

Best things to buy at Target: AirPods.

The only thing better than AirPods? AirPods Pro. Our executive editor (and audio expert) even calls them the best earbuds that Apple has ever made. While the original AirPods also have amazing sound quality and a comfortable fit, the AirPods Pro take it a step further with noise cancellation so you can truly tune out the outside world.

4. The number one smart speaker

Best things to buy at Target: Amazon Echo.

There are so many options out there when it comes to smart speakers. And while they all offer something a little bit different, our top pick is the 3rd Generation Amazon Echo. It has the best sound quality thanks to its Dolby audio setup and uses far-field voice recognition so you can talk to Alexa from any room in your house.

Best things to buy at Target: Apple Watch Series 4.

How can you make your life easier in just one purchase? With a smartwatch, obviously. The wildly popular Apple Watch is the best one you can buy because it does everything—and we do mean everything—better than any of the other ones we tested. Whether you want to listen to music, answer a phone call, or navigate via GPS, you can use your Apple Watch to do it. Plus, it's water-resistant and has a sapphire glass display so it's super durable.

Best things you can buy at Target: Ninja Fit blender.

You're a busy person, we get it. A.k.a. you don't have time (or motivation) to pull out a massive blender every time you want to make a smoothie in the morning, let alone transfer said smoothie to a separate glass and then wash all of the things. Enter the Ninja Fit. It's the number one personal blender on the market because it's powerful yet compact so you can slip it into your bag as you race out the door.

7. The best paper towels

Best things to buy at Target: Bounty paper towels.

Not every trip to Target is going to result in a fancy new smartwatch or a cute pair of shoes. Sometimes—in fact, more often than not—you're going for more mundane things. Like paper towels. Of all the brands out there, we recommend Bounty Select-A-Size 2-Ply. The "quicker picker-upper" cleaned the best during our tests and felt the strongest and thickest.

8. These expert-approved noise-cancelling headphones

Best things to buy at Target: Sony Noise-Cancelling Headphones.

Noise-cancelling headphones are all the rage. But which pair is best? Our experts say these ones from Sony, which sound great and are comfortable enough to wear for hours on end. What really won us over, however, is the active noise cancellation technology that you can customize to determine how much outside noise you can hear.

Best things to buy at Target: Amazon Kindle Paperwhite.

Reading is great—toting around heavy books is not. That's why people love Kindles, especially the Paperwhite. It's our top e-reader because it has a crystal clear display with 24 different levels of illumination (so you can read anytime, anywhere) along with tons of storage space and audio capabilities so you can even listen to podcasts and audio books. Bonus: It's also waterproof (!!).

Best things to buy at Target: Fitbit Charge 3.

So you decided this is your year to finally get in shape (or even just get up from your desk more than once a day). Congrats—but you'll need a few things to help achieve that goal. Like the [Fitbit Charge 3], which we chose as the number one fitness tracker. It's as fashionable as it is functional, with its easy-to-use functionality and plenty of sleep- and activity-tracking capabilities.

Best things to buy at Target: iRobot Roomba.

Vacuuming is one of the most-hated chores in America for a reason. If you hate to do it as much as I—and thousands of other people—do, buy a robot vacuum to do it for you. We've tested some of the most popular ones and found the iRobot Roomba i7+ to be the most effective at cleaning. It also has one feature that the others don't: it can empty itself (!!).

Keurig

Best things to buy at Target: Keurig K-Cafe.

Whether you want a strong espresso shot or a creamy latte, this Keurig can do it all. We dubbed it one of the best coffeemakers (and certainly the most versatile) because it has so many different options to choose from and a large reservoir that means you won't have to constantly be refilling it. It even has an attached milk frother, too, so you can whip up barista-worthy beverages.

If one of your favorite hobbies is Netflix-ing (no shame!), then a high-quality streaming device should be on your Target shopping list. Our experts recommend the Roku Ultra because it's compatible with almost every TV setup—including 4K and HDR—and offers all of the major streaming services, from Netflix to Hulu to HBO (it's also the first non-Apple device to offer Apple TV!).

Best things to buy at Target: Staub Dutch oven.

When you think of Dutch ovens, you likely think of Le Creuset. And while we're all for the popular brand, our experts found this Staub Dutch oven to be even better. Made of cast iron, it's solid and durable and cooks food evenly, whether you're braising meat or making stew.

Air fryers are a great—and more importantly, healthier—way to enjoy all of your favorite fried foods at home. We recommend this budget-friendly Cuisinart one because it's simple to use and cooks food evenly and quickly with just the right amount of crisp. Golden brown French fries, anyone?

Of all the Instax instant cameras (and there are a lot!), the Mini 90 Neo Classic is hands-down the best. Not only does it have the most features—including double exposure mode and a high performance flash—but it's also rechargeable so you don't have to worry about dealing with AA batteries.
