    1. A hammock chair so you can take your chill time to ~new heights~. Just put your phone on "Do Not Disturb" and relax.

    Reviewer pic of the circular macrame hammock chair hanging from the ceiling in the corner of the room.

    The hammock comes with the macrame chair and a heavy-duty hanging hardware kit so all you have to do is drill a hole in the ceiling, insert the iron hooks, and hang. It can support up to 330 lbs.

    Promising review: "What a cool fun hanging chair to have in my living room. It was easy to install and completely safe for an adult to sit in. My dog likes joining me on my lap also. Highly recommended." —BO B.

    Get it from Amazon for $57.99 (available in two styles).

    2. A pillow cover printed with, dare I say, the GREATEST combination on this earth and really the only way to enjoy a rainy day.

    Promising review: "I really like this throw pillow. It’s super cute and I am continually asked where I bought it. The quality is good, and the price is just right!" —VMA

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in five styles).

    3. A eucalyptus bundle you can hang from your shower head to add a touch of greenery and life to the room. Plus the steam from the shower will cause it to release natural oils said to clear sinuses, relax the body and mind, *and* fill the room with a heavenly scent. I'm feeling calmer just thinking about that...

    The bundle is handmade and shipped fresh from the small business based out of Nashville, Tennessee. They recommend replacing once a month for the best results.

    Promising review: "Amazing! My shower smells exactly like the showers at the blue lagoon in Iceland now 😍, and the presentation is so cute. This is such a great detail to make your bathroom feel like a spa, and it arrived perfectly intact. Love it!" —valerieannrn

    Get it from BotanicaFleur on Etsy for $7.99+ (available in four sizes).

    4. A laptop desk to ensure your computer is at a proper level so you don't strain your eyes or neck while you work or even when you're watching Netflix in bed.

    Plus, reviewers say you can also put this on a table or desk and make it into a standing desk.

    Promising review: "I got this thing so I could do schoolwork on my couch after a long day at the office. I mean... Who really wants to sit at an office desk for 8 hours and then again at home? My couch is way more comfortable. But cranking my neck is not. So this thing is great because of the variable height and the tilting table so I can get my laptop up to eyeball level without causing neck strain. And the side area is great for holding my coffee and my Bluetooth mouse. When raised to its full height, it seems a little unstable but that's the only critique." —Marvi

    Get it from Amazon for $28.89 (available in three colors).

    5. An artificial tree to add some greenery and life without needing to remember to water it — it's okay if you're not ready for that big of a commitment just yet.

    reviewer pic of the tree in a basket in their house

    Promising review: "I love this tree! It's really great quality. Artificial trees are typically very expensive, so I was afraid this one would look cheap because it is sold at such a great price, but I took a shot based on the great reviews, and I'm so glad I did. It does not come with a decorative pot, just the small black planter as shown in the picture, but I knew this at the time of purchase and had already planned to put it in a pot I already owned. I added some dried moss on the top of the filler items I put in the pot to hold the plant in place and it looks great. I would definitely purchase again, and I just might buy another one for another area of my home." —SK

    Get it from Amazon for $51.99+ (available in six sizes).

    6. An L-shaped couch that'll make it so much easier for you to actually lounge (rather than trying to lie down with your feet balancing on your hard coffee table).

    Reviewer pic of the couch in grey with an ottoman, making it into an l-shaped couch in a living room.

    Many reviewers say that this couch is great for small spaces/apartments. The measurements are 78.5’’(L)*30.3’’(W)*35’’(H).

    Promising review: "This couch is WAY more than I expected to get for the price. It's not the most plush or luxe couch on the market, but it is comfortable and nappable! It looks great, is sturdy, and I easily assembled it by myself in less than 30 minutes. It cleans easily (spilled coffee on it the first night and cleaned it with a wet rag and couldn't tell it was ever spilled the next morning). It's small but easily could fit three adults. Chaise is short but loungeable. It's a great purchase!" —Jennifer Bankston

    Get it from Amazon for $319.98 (available in beige, light grey, and dark grey).

    7. Some string lights to transform your bedroom into a magical wonderland even better than the one Alice fell into.,

    These lights are made with three strands and are dimmable with an on and off switch. Plus, they're made from copper wire that's waterproof and bendable. And to top it off, they have more than 6,000 5-star reviews!

    Promising review: "I have a weird layout in my studio apartment and needed some extra lighting in my bed nook since there’s no space for a lamp or bedside table. These were cost-efficient and easy to put up using tiny command hooks. They add a nice, cozy feeling to my otherwise drab nook. I also didn’t realize that you can adjust the brightness of the lights.!" —miss_etc

    Get them from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in one and two packs and in three colors).

    8. A reversible shag and Sherpa throw blanket – just looking at it, I'm dreaming about wrapping around my body in it, so I can't even imagine how great it will actually be in person.

    The throw blanket with long shaggy faux fur on one side and sherpa on the other side

    Promising review: "I bought the grey fur blanket and, HOLY SMOKES, this is the most comfortable blanket I think I’ve ever bought. It was meant to be decor and not really used, but I can’t keep it off of me, it’s so soft. I was very surprised by how good of quality it seems, especially for the price. Big enough to cover two people up easily. I’d compare the feeling of the faux fur to something like bunny’s fur, and the Sherpa is very soft as well. It has some decent weight to it and I’ve found it to be very warm so far. All in all, good for the money." —Kaylee Morris

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in five sizes and 43 colors).

    9. A cappuccino with friends art print bound to make you smile every time you look and it and think about that warm and fuzzy feeling you get when you share a cup of coffee with a friend.

    Lovely Earthlings / Etsy

    BTW — this print is handmade by a small Black woman-owned shop based out of Louisville, Kentucky!

    Promising review: "This print is stunning and I do not throw that word around very often. The colors are vibrant and the paper quality is incredible. The shipping and care that went into the packaging were the bow on this already amazing find. This piece was the finishing touch I had been searching for. I am beyond happy with it and cannot wait to get more! ❤️" —Jonelle Torrez

    Get it from Lovely Earthlings on Etsy for $25.31+ (available in two sizes).

    10. A lift top coffee table to make working from home a dream and a half. Plus, when you're done working, you can store your laptop and other electronics inside the coffee table itself so you always know where they are.

    Reviewer photo fo the brown wood coffee table with the top lifted up in a living room in front of a big couch

    Promising review: "I love this table. It's perfect for the space restrictions of my smaller apartment and is an attractive and sturdy piece of furniture. It looks way more expensive than it is. I use it for my laptop center, and when company stops by, I slip it under the top and close it up. It's a bit of a bugger to get together. You have to be patient, have the time to make it a fun project, and assume nothing when following the directions to the tee. Buying this table made me look like an interior design genius, and it was all just the luck of the draw, and a great product at a great price." —Bill Ramage

    Get it from Amazon for $196+ (available in light brown, dark brown, and white).

    11. A nonslip microfiber shaggy bath mat, because even your bathroom deserves some coziness, and if it's good enough for these pups, it'll be great for your feet.,

    Promising review: "Super plush and soft bath mat. My dog is convinced it’s his new bed it’s so plush. I’m very impressed with the quality for the price." —KT

    Get it from Amazon for $11.99+ (available in three sizes and five colors).

    12. Some velvet pillow covers that'll make your home look so downright fancy you might confuse it with Buckingham Palace.

    a teal, blue, light blue, purple, and navy blue velvet pillowcases on a bed

    Promising review: "I used to manage a Pottery Barn, and they have stunning velvet pillowcases. I was wondering what these would be like in comparison and honestly, I like these better! I purchased both the mauve pink and the golden khaki color. I’m about to purchase seven more now that I know how beautiful they are. The colors are spot-on and are a tad shiny but velvet should be unless stated otherwise. The brighter colors will be great for spring and summer. The price point is FANTASTIC!!" —MBATLANTA

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.99 (available in eight sizes and in 33 colors).

    13. A shag area rug to help warm up the room and make it so your feet aren't always cold when you walk around.

    Promising review: "Everyone has asked me where I got my rug. The softness and thickness are amazing. It's beautiful and high-end quality. I will be buying another rug from this company." —Cherri B.

    Get it from Boutique Rugs for $34.12+ (originally $85.29; available in 10 sizes).

    14. A mirror to hang in basically any (or every) room to reflect the light and make the room feel bigger, which is a great thing no matter how big (or small) your home is.,

    Promising review: "This mirror is BEAUTIFUL! Seriously, I can't get over how simple yet stunning this mirror is, especially for the price. It makes my bathroom and is the focal point. My very small bathroom feels so much bigger with this mirror. Love, love, love. I have the large 37", and it was very easy to hang thanks to the wire hanger already attached and the included anchor." —Brit

    Get it from Amazon for $50+ (available in six sizes and eight colors).

    15. A Canopy x Open Spaces humidifier and aroma kit designed to hydrate a room (up to 500 square feet) while giving you three different aromas to help get you through the day (and on to the next one).

    the white rectangle humidifier with three small fragrance boxes in pink, blue, and purple sitting in front of it

    Canopy and Open Spaces teamed up to add some amazing scents to their humidifier. Not only do you get the humidifier but you also get a filter and three scents: dawn (which has notes of bergamot and tea blossom), Midday (which has notes of sage and cedarwood), and Dusk (which has notes of vanilla, lime, and lavender).

    Promising review: "I love this humidifier! After just a week, I can definitely feel the difference in my skin and I’ve been getting better sleep. It’s straightforward, easy to use, and sleek enough to blend right in to my home. It’s not silent, but I personally love the soft white noise as I fall asleep." —Leah

    Get it from Canopy for $150.

    16. A faux sheepskin area rug for the floor next to your bed (or anywhere else TBH), so you'll have a soft place to land when you get up in the morning.

    Promising review: "I loooooove it! It’s such a nice material. It looks more expensive than what it actually is. It looks great in my living room." —Silvia Gallegos

    Get it from Amazon for $19.89+ (available in three sizes and 10 colors).

    17. A Buffy cloud comforter that's temperature regulating, so you can cuddle up and stay cozy and warm with no fear of overheating in the middle of the night. But just be warned, this thing is so comfy, you may not want to get out of bed in the morning.

    Bespoke Post

    Get it from Bespoke Post for $160+ (available in full/queen and king/Cal king).

    18. Or a Purple weighted blanket specifically designed to be big enough to fit over your whole bed and have a dual-sided fabric so you can stay comfortable (and get deeper better sleep) all night (and year) long.

    the dark grey blanket with quilted side up on a bed

    I've been using this weighted blanket as my main blanket for the past few months, and it has changed the way that I sleep. I will say that it did take a bit of getting used to — the first night it felt really heavy on me. But after that, I really started to like how it felt to sleep with a weighted blanket. I feel like a get a better deeper sleep when I use this, and it's really comfortable. It fits completely over my queen-sized bed. And I love how it's double-sided. I started using the cool side but quickly switched to the cozy side when the temperature started to drop in November. And so far, it's been warm enough to get me through winter without needing another blanket on top of it.

    Promising review: "I've never seen a bit need for a weighted blanket, but my wife loves them. I purchased this for us and it's been worth every penny! It's cuddly and feels like the entire world just melts away." —Steve H.

    Get it from Purple for $239 (originally $299).

    19. A set of floating shelves you can put on your wall, because it's about time you got things out of the way in your home so you can actually use and enjoy all the space you have.

    Promising review: "I love these, and they fit perfectly in my bathroom! I read some reviews that the wood isn't finished, but I actually love the rustic look of unfinished wood. The quality is great for the price, and they do exactly what I needed them to!" —Anna Langevin

    Get them from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in two sizes and in light brown and dark brown).

    20. Some removable stair riser tile decals to add some ~depth~ to your staircase, which will make it feel like more of a part of your home. This little detail will increase the warmth and coziness of your home tenfold.

    BTW — Quadrostyle is a small woman-owned business based out of Denpasar, Indonesia!

    Promising review: "These are beautiful, and I absolutely love them. I decided to go with every other riser, and I love how it looks in my space. They are very easy to install, though I would say go slowly with the first one and measure carefully. Once I got the hang of it, they went up easily. I have been showing them off and everyone loves them. Great way to customize and upgrade an overlooked space!" —bleve1111

    Get a set of six from Quadrostyle on Etsy for $13.86+ (available in six heights and two finishes).

    21. A ceramic table lamp you can place on your bedside table to add some texture to the room — and so you don't have to turn off the lights and then run and jump into your bed in the dark.

    Promising review: "This is a fantastic lamp that throws a ton of light. It's a great value for the price. The lamp was delivered within days of having placed the order. I'm very pleased with my purchase." —Andrea

    Get it from Rugs USA for $59.90+ (originally $140.39; available in four colors).

    22. Some blackout curtains so you can, once and for all, get those eight hours of sleep you've been failing to get because the sun is too bright and wakes you up in the morning.

    Reviewer pic of the curtains in pink on the window in the bedroom

    Promising review: "These curtains are high quality and soft to the touch, yet durable. They are sold in sets vs per panel and are comparable to the higher priced single panels. These are incredibly popular and for good reason. One side of our home gets sunlight from sunrise to sunset. During 105-degree days, the electric bill is awful. We have seen a difference already. Make sure to buy enough sets to allow the curtain to gather appropriately and darken the room when drawn. I don't have a patio door but use these on every window in our home." —Susan H.

    Get a pair from Amazon for $19.95+ (available in eight lengths and 20 colors).

    23. A chunky knit blanket you can def use to keep you warm, but is also just a nice thing to have in your home as decor.

    Promising review: "I love this blanket! It's well crafted, soft, and comfy. I just placed an order for two more for Christmas gifts. The color is beautiful, the material is amazing. You can't go wrong purchasing one or two for yourself!" —Aimee B

    Get it from Amazon for $66.99+ (available in 12 sizes and 13 colors).

    24. A macrame wall hanging to add some texture to your wall and give the room more depth (and something for you to look at other than a blank wall).

    This piece is handmade by the small Black woman-owned business from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. It's approximately 2 feet wide by 3 feet tall and comes with a hanging bracket to make it easy to install.

    Promising review: "I love this piece! Candice was very communicative and her shop was great. The only difficult part was deciding which piece to buy!" —ollallie

    Get it from Shop Candice Luter on Etsy for $235+ (available natural or custom dyed and four wood accent bar options).

    25. A sofa table you can put behind your couch so you can keep the things you need most close by and *also* display the items that really and truly bring you joy.

    A different reviewer pic of the table behind a couch in a living room with assorted stuff on top

    Promising review: "This arrived sooner than expected! It was easy to put together. You don’t need any special tools and can do by yourself. It worked perfectly for my foyer, and I was able to tuck the dog bowls under it with no problem. Clutter and crowded foyer be gone! I’d buy it again." —genabeebers

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in light and dark brown and in two styles).

    26. A wood-top side table with a basket underneath to keep your TBR pile close so you can pick the book that fits your mood at the moment.

    reviewer pic of the round side table with wood top, grey fabric basket at the bottom and white legs

    Promising review: "What a great table! It’s sturdy and super easy to assemble the basket. We’ve had it for months and regularly toss in whatever is laying around, including the Chromebook and its charger. Perfect for perching a lamp and coaster plus remotes for movie nights." —H. B. Neal

    Get it from Amazon for $77.15+ (available in three colors).

    27. A Tuft & Needle hybrid mattress made with two inches of foam on top, plus coils, so you get the perfect mix of support and softness that may just make you want to stay in bed all day. Plus, the fabric is designed to stay cool while you sleep so you never wake up because you're too hot.

    the mattress in grey

    Promising review: "My old bed was a very expensive sleep number bed. If it works correctly it's a nice bed. The problem is there are so many things that can go wrong and did go wrong with mine. I did some research and decided that the Tuft and Needle, Nod hybrid was my new bed. First, I didn't really notice any smell when I unboxed it. After letting it expand and breathe, I put it on my old frame. I also purchased a Tuft and Needle mattress pad, so I put that on too. This bed is so soft, warm, and comfortable. Mine feels firm, but some how still warm and comfy. The last 2 weeks of sleeping on it have been some of the best sleep I have had in years. No tossing or turning. No waking up so sore and tired I need to nap the next day. I love this bed." —shari b.

    Get it from Amazon for $427.50+ (available in six sizes and as the mattress alone or the mattress with pillows).

    28. Some mosaic film you can stick on your windows to let light in at all hours of the day without worrying about your neighbors seeing you walking around in your underwear. Bonus: the light will reflect rainbow-like colors throughout your home.


    The film is made with static cling, so it can be removed very easily and won't leave behind any residue. Plus, it blocks out 96% of UV rays, which will protect you and your home from being directly exposed to sunlight. It is also heat-controlling, which means it will keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.

    Promising review: "I'm really happy with this product. I have huge sliding door windows on the first floor, so I wanted to have some privacy but still have natural light. It was very easy to apply. I thought it would be like trying to apply a screen protector, which is frustrating, but since there's no adhesive and the material is pliable; the bubbles come out very easily. The pliability also makes it very forgiving if you don't cut it perfectly. I plan on buying more for my other set of windows! A few reviewers complained about not getting the rainbow/prism effect. It depends on the angle and intensity of the light. My windows face the setting sun pretty directly, so sunset is rainbow time! Season changing will probably alter the effect, as the angle of the sun changes a bit. From the outside, I've noticed that small lights in a dark room (ex: my digital clock backlight) produce pretty rainbow circles on the film." —DMG

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98+ (available in seven sizes).

    29. A set of flameless candles for the perfect amount of ambience without having to fear falling asleep with a candle still burning.

    three white candles of different sizes with a light flame in sitting in a tray

    They come with a remote with on/off and dimmable features.

    Promising review: "I’m no stranger to faux candles, but I must admit — when I opened the box for these candles — I was floored! They LOOKED cheap with the wires and the plastic “flames.” But as they say (and the other reviews mention) — you can’t judge a book by the cover. These candles — especially when placed up high or at a distance — look INCREDIBLY REAL!!! And then the remote allows you to dim the flames to a softer glow, which only makes them look prettier and more romantic! Added bonus — the remote has a memory that “remembers” the last setting!!! (Definitely recommend getting the remote!) If you are into indirect light and/or candles — THESE are well worth purchasing!." —Pamela

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $21.99.

    30. A backrest pillow filled with memory foam that will support you more than when Netflix asks if you're still watching. Yes, of course, I'm still watching.

    A blue and grey stand up pillow with arms and a handle on the top.

    Promising review: "I bought this based on other reviews. There are cheaper products you can buy, but this one is quality. You get what you pay for. I was skeptical because it comes in a small box, and when you unwrap it the foam is compressed, and it looks like garbage. However, after you take the time to fluff it up and let the foam expand, it is amazing. Don't be fooled! I am actually using it as I write this review. A+ product." —Meghan R.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in three sizes and in grey and navy).

    31. And a bathtub caddy so you can keep all the essentials you need (i.e. a candle, bubble bath, your phone) close to you without a chance of their getting wet so you can stay in there for as long as you need to.

    Not only is it size-adjustable to accommodate different tubs, it comes equipped with a wineglass holder, edges that safely prop up a book or tablet, a candle holder, and extra space for whatever else their cozy heart desires.

    Promising review: "When I placed my order for this tray I looked at the pics but did not realize how really cool this piece is. The ability to change the size is great, but I just love the different trays that are removable as well as the ability to put my phone and a Kindle in 'safe' areas of the tray. I found a perfect place for my TV remote should I want to watch TV and not read. I just got it and used it last night but it appears to be well-made, balanced, and offers versatility for the things you may want at your fingertips when taking a luxurious bath!" —SindiMcG

    Get it from Amazon for $39.97+ (available in seven colors).

    32. A large woven storage basket perfect for giving you a place to stash your collection of blankets while adding a ~pop~ of color and fun to the room, making it more enjoyable to hang out in.

    33. An electric blanket to take things up a notch when it's a little chilly in your home and you want to be extra cozy.

    Model with a big blanket on top of them with one side red and the other size fully white.

    Promising review: "The temperature goes down real quick when winter comes. Luckily, I bought this electric heated blanket. After I take a shower every day, this product is a lifesaver. I turn on the swift to high before I start the shower, and tuck in right after I am done my shower. So warm and comfy. It is big enough for any individual under 5'7''. If you are taller than this height, I think you need a bigger one." —Claraaaaa

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    34. And an electric fireplace to really take the comfort level of your home up a ~notch~ as it can add some additional heat to any room (up to 1,000 square feet).

    This electric fireplace has an adjustable thermostat and will turn off when the temperature is reached. You can also turn the heat off to enjoy heatless flames, no matter the weather. It comes with a remote to help you control it and has a heated-air release on the top.

    Promising review: "I love it! Someday we may get a real fireplace, but I love that I can just move this elsewhere when that is possible. Shortly after putting it together, the family just gravitated towards this cozy room. I wish I’d gotten it sooner!" —Elizabeth

    Get it from Wayfair for $528.85 (available in black and brown).
