1. A Sugarmat x Kendra Dandy yoga mat made from suede material for a luxurious stretch or meditation session. Kendra is a Black illustrator from Philadelphia who is known for her stunning abstract patterns.

Sugarmat

I personally love this mat. The suede material makes it super soft under bare feet and is perfect for post workout stretches. It’s durable and has just the right amount of cushion in case you want to use it for workouts as well.

Get it from Sugarmat for $89.

2. A Dyson supersonic hair dryer that’s designed to protect hair from heat damage and deliver faster dry time. Your dream blowout is just a dry away with this hair tool.

Sephora

Set contains: Dyson Supersonic, smoothing nozzle, styling concentrator, diffuser, non-slip mat, and storage hanger.

Promising review: “It’s worth every penny. I was weary of it since it was so expensive, but this treasure dries my thick curly hair in like 10 minutes. With shine and no frizz. I highly recommend it!” —DrKitCat

Get it from Sephora for $399.

3. A set of Apple AirPods Pro that are noise-cancelling and the best combo of compact and wire-free so you never have to worry about untying knots in the wire ever again.

amazon.com

Promising review: “Apple hit a home run with these… I wanted the original AirPods but couldn’t get them to fit in my ear. I have tried other true wireless earbuds and never liked the look or fit of them. With the AirPods Pro, Apple has answered my prayers, and they’re even better than I could have imagined. The sound cancellation is LEGIT. I own the Bose 700 noise-cancelling headphones and while they’re not as good at noise cancellation as those, I’m blown away by how close it is. The sound quality as well sounds very good to me. I’m by no means an audiophile but I’m a little picky as far as this goes and I’m more than pleased. The ability to switch from noise canceling to transparency mode is awesome as well.” —TCC

Get the from Amazon for $219.

4. A Barefoot Dreams throw blanket so soft and cozy you’ll never want to leave your bed. The Kardashians love these and so will you…

instagram.com

These are made with a super soft polyester, microfiber blend.

Promising review: “Chrissy Teigen tweeted that she loved this blanket and mentioned that it easily stretches over the shoulders and feet. Let me tell you, it does. I’m only 5′ 5” so it does the trick. This blanket makes me look forward to going to sleep. It’s not too warm yet you feel wrapped up in a cloud. Totally worth the money. I want another one.” —Michael A. Roman

Get it from Amazon for $230.

5. A The Daily Edited phone case that’s chic and personalized so you can keep your gadget as trendy as your outfits. They now offer preorders for the new iPhone 12 mini, 12, 12 pro, and 12 pro max.

instagram.com

I have had their mock croc wrap case for a few years and it’s so chic and sturdy. I’m not a fan of bulky cases but still like something to feel like it’s going to protect my phone from the occasional drop or two on the floor. This has protected my phone ~AND~ made it look cute as heck.

Get it from The Daily Edited for $60+.

6. A monogram pendant necklace if you want to layer it with your other must-wear jewelry.

Anthropologie

Necklaces are made in the USA and are 14k gold filled.

Promising review: “I recently purchased this beautiful necklace and every time I wear it I get compliments on it. People want to know where I got my necklace. It’s perfect with everything I wear. Love it!” —Mommom123

Get it from Anthropologie for $58 (available in 26 letters).

7. A Diptyque Baies scented candle so luxurious, every time you burn it you’ll feel like a royal. These candles add a gorgeous scent to your space even when unlit.

Diptyque

Promising review: “The scent this candle gives off is amazing. So sweet, pleasant, and gives me a happy kind of feeling from smelling it burn in my house. The scent lasts and I won’t have to burn it for a long time for it to fill up the room. Even when it’s not burning you can still smell it. You won’t regret buying it.” —Kaymel

Get it from Bloomingdales for $36+ (available in two sizes).

8. A gold bar cart to create a unique space to display your liquors, wine glasses, and mixologist tools.

amazon.com

Promising review: “I love the size and style of my new bar cart and it fits perfectly in my dining room corner. It took my husband and I roughly 10 minutes to put the bar cart together and I was very pleased with the packaging.” —Meka

Get it from Amazon for $129.60.

9. A portable charger because the frustration of your phone dying when you’re not near a wall outlet is the struggle of all struggles. This can charge your iPhone up to an estimated 8 times, *GASPS*.

amazon.com

Promising review: “I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS CHARGER! I used to have an older version/model with less charging power which we ran to the ground in a few years. We do Facebook live, lots of pictures and videos. We also have iPads and a Samsung tablet. Not to even mention the many times we’ve bailed our friends out of not having a charger nearby hahahaha. This charger is amazing. It does take a bit to charge, at least 12 hours + but when it does, even a heavy user like myself has juice for at least a week. I love the IQ feature which to me means, it knows when charging is needed so it turns on and off and you don’t have to worry about turning it on or off or worrying about it losing its charge for nothing. That’s peace of mind. I love that it has two USB ports to charge two devices at once and I love the charge level indicators.” —HonestP

Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in four colors).

10. A wall hook organizer featuring hinging dowel hooks that can be opened for hanging items or hinged closed to lay flat as a cool wall decor piece.

Girlfriend Collective

Promising review: “These compression leggings…really changed my life! They are perfect for the winter. I usually dress them up with an oversized chunky sweater and my Doc Martens, or I wear them casually when I run or on my way to yoga. If you are looking for a staple pair of black leggings (that are high waisted) — BUY THESE!” —Madison W.

Get them from Girlfriend Collective for $68 (available in sizes XXS–6XL and nine colors).

12. A Slip silk pillowcase that’s like sleeping on a cool cloud (I have this and love it.) It also helps prevent hair pulling and tangling that can happen when getting your beauty rest.

Slip

The pillowcase is made from 100% silk, which is less absorbent than other fibers. This means that all those products you put on your skin and in your hair stay where they belong. Hand-washing the case is suggested.

Promising review: “This is an investment, and it is so worth it. I have curly frizzy hair, and this has been a lifesaver. I actually wake up with my hair looking okay rather than a crazed clown. The pillowcase is soft and no doubt good for my skin. You do have to hand wash it, which isn’t too difficult and it dries super quick too.” —Peanut13

Get it from Nordstrom for $89+ (available in two sizes).

13. A Sonix UV Sanitization box because your gadgets and gizmos a plenty could definitely use some cleaning. Your phone can carry over 25,000 different bacteria (more than a kitchen counter) — YUCK.

instagram.com

The sanitization box kills 99.9% bacteria and viruses and can sanitize hard-to-reach places. It also prevents germs from reproducing, multiplying, and can even neutralize antibiotic-resistant “superbugs.” There is a built-in power port to charge devices during sanitization (we love a multi-tasker).

Promising review: “This checks all the boxes. It’s big enough to fit all the items I want to sanitize and is beautiful. The whole thing is great and works perfectly.” —Michelle Noyss

Get it from Sonix for $75.

14. A Kindle Paperwhite so you can get your reading on while snuggling by the fire or sitting in the bathtub during some well-deserved “me time”. This waterproof tablet will be your new bubble bath BFF.

Amazon

Promising review: “This year, I am traveling to many different countries and have been reading more than I have ever been. I did not want to take physical books with me on trips for the obvious reason that it takes up space and weighs down my luggage. That’s when I decided to see about the kindle paper white. Man, am I pleasantly surprised by this device. It’s compact, portable, really minimizes glare, and the backlight is phenomenal for reading in different lighting. In fact, I can now read in the dark without keeping my husband awake with a reading light.” —LinaRi

Get it from Amazon for $129.99+ (available in four colors, and two storage capacities).

15. A pair of Diff x Star Wars sunglasses themed after Mandalorian character Boba Fett from the prequel trilogy movies. The round lens shape is v popular right now and will make your accessory game outta this galaxy. ☆

Diff Eyewear

Each Star Wars x DIFF frame includes a specialized trifold case & cleaning cloth.

Promising review: “I was a little nervous buying at first but I fell in love as soon as I put them on! I loved the polarized effect and the little details. I’m a huge Star Wars fan so I needed to get my hands on these. They’re adorable. I get lots of compliments while wearing them!” —Alyssa L.

Get them from Diff Eyewear for $95.

Promising review: “I am so happy with this television. First, it arrived super fast, days before expected. Second, it was easy to set up and came with clear instructions. Third, it has a very easy to use menu. All my choices of cable, NetFlix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime are right there before my eyes when I turn it on and with a couple clicks of the remote, I am quickly enjoying my programs. Fourth, the picture is clear, the colors are vivid and the volume control has a great range. Something the television it replaced did not have.” —Lori Caswell/Dollycas

Get the 32-inch TV from Amazon for $99.99.

17. A pair of Ugg slippers that some buyers say is like walking on clouds. These come in a slew of colors that you’ll probs want to keep in every room of your house when your toesies are in need of some warmth.

amazon.com

Slippers feature an elastic strap and rubber sole for non-slip wear.

Promising review: “These slippers are so unique and comfortable. There is a solid platform which gives them a much different feel than any other slipper and the strap really keeps them in place. They are so soft and funky looking. I actually wear them outside of the house running errands and such so they are worth the price tag for a slipper.” —Helga

Get them from Amazon for $99.95+ (available in sizes 5–12 and 32 colors)

18. A Nespresso coffee and espresso maker set featuring an external milk frother so you can pretend you’re not in quarantine and actually getting a nice cappuccino on the streets of Italy.

I absolutely swear by this coffee machine. Ever since I traveled abroad I became obsessed with cappuccinos and this makes almost as amazing caffeinated drinks as the ones I had in Italy. The milk frother is a ~major~ game changer and will have you making lattes and cappuccinos like a true barista.

Get it from Amazon for $199.

Sephora

Promising review: “It’s about time! I’ve been waiting for such a long time to get a not only reputable but dependable setting spray that doesn’t smell odd and holds onto your make up and doesn’t leave your face drenched. The Charlotte setting spray is a wonderful combination of ingredients and impeccable packaging that not only leaves your makeup perfectly in place but also gives it a soft pillow mist style application that definitely leaves you wanting more! ” —Mfmua

Get it from Sephora for $35.

20. A Boxxle box wine dispenser that can hold up to 3 liters of wine so you don’t have to waste another drop that gets stuck in the bag. Store this sleek appliance on your counter and it’ll keep your vino fresh up to six weeks after you pour your first glass.

Amazon

Promising review: “This little guy is so worth it! We enjoy a fair amount of boxed wine, so we almost always have a bag in the Boxxle. It really does dispense until the bag is pretty much empty, you have to see it to believe it. It looks nice on the counter, and blocks all light from getting to the bag of wine. After struggling with dispensing the last of the wine from the traditional box (seriously, there seemed to always be at least a bottle still left when we had to start the tilt, shake, tilt, shake again antics) it’s pleasurable to use the Boxxle!” —Andrea W.

Get it from Amazon for $98.99.

Promising review: “I bought this Tumi tote for travel this fall, but when I agreed to teach a week-long course, I used it as a combination purse and carryall for my teaching materials. The course is over and I’m still using the tote. It’s the right size to hold my things without being overfilled, and it fits easily over my shoulder. A really nice tote with handy pockets inside and out.” —Dream Beast

Get it from Amazon for $259 (available in four colors).

23. An electric scrubber to make cleaning your bathroom a literal breeze. This rechargeable scrubber has four brush heads for a customizable clean.

Amazon

Promising review: “This little device is my new favorite thing! Cleaning our shower was my least favorite chore. Now I can get a deeper clean in less than half the time. I can get two cleanings out of a single charge. I love the different brush heads. The corner one is great for getting around the handle and in the shelves, while the flat head really scrubs the shower walls and floor. I am looking forward to seeing how this performs on the grout in our kitchen floor as well, and hoping that I can say goodbye to the old toothbrush method! After using this product one time our shower looked the cleanest it ever has since it was brand new.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in two colors).

Wow!” —JMP

25. A pair of Amavii Altair sunglasses made from 18-karat gold for channeling your inner Kris Jenner. You can also flip up the polarized lenses once you’re out of the sun.

Allison Faccenda / BuzzFeed

These sunglasses actually require 200 steps to make so you’re basically wearing a literal work of art on your face. I am so obsessed with my pair and they are well worth the investment. These 2-in-1 glasses feature an optical set of lenses underneath a flip-up pair of polarized sunglass lenses. *BONUS*— they’re also sustainable and made from titanium metal that’s 100% recyclable.

I just recently moved out of my parents’ home and got a small bedroom in a home with several other girls. It’s perfect because it saves so much space, it’s comfortable to work at, and it’s just the right size!” —Kelly

Get it from Amazon for $74.95 (available in two colors).

29. An Honest Beauty sleep serum — a vegan and cruelty-free skincare must-have to pop on before bed so you can wake up to glowy skin. It features two types of hyaluronic acid to deeply hydrate, while simultaneously dissolving dead skin cells.

Target

Promising review: “This product is really great! I have dry skin, therefore I have to be very conservative what active ingredients I use so that my skin doesn’t get stripped and lose its bounce and suppleness. I am happy to say I was able to use this three nights in a row before I noticed any dryness at all. From that point, I have been using it every other night or two. It is so gentle, yet so effective. My skin is feeling like a baby’s bottom, while past red marks are fading. I look forward to the nights I get to use this. Love!” —momof3
