    Promising review: "This is one of the best investments I have ever made! The style is beautiful and sleek, yet very functional! It makes cleaning them a breeze after use!

    The oval-shaped diffuser with steam coming out of the top in dark grey

    Promising review: "This is such a beautiful addition to our home. The diffuser is sturdy and well-made. I love the porcelain cover, which makes it look like a piece of art on our side table. It's such a great alternative to burning candles. I highly recommend it; it's worth the investment!" —Jenni

    Get it from Amazon for $105.86+ (available in four colors).

    3. A pair of Beats Powerbeats headphones to tune out any noise around you (whether you're at home or outside) so you can focus on crushing those weighted squats and not the barking dog.

    Emma McAnaw / BuzzFeed

    These headphones are made with ear hooks to fit in your ears securely while still being comfortable, so you won't be afraid that they'll fall out randomly. They also have up to nine hours of listening time and 24 total with the charging case. Plus, they're made to be water and sweat resistant, have volume and track controls on the side, and with more than 22,000 5-star reviews are worth the high price tag.

    Promising review "The Powerbeats earphones are the best investment I've made. They fit around my ears perfectly and comfortable, while I’m sitting around or working out and listening to my favorite music on my Powerbeats sound. I love them! I never leave home without them. Two thumbs-up!" —Albert Torres

    4. A Slip silk pillowcase here to make sleep feel even more like a ~dream~, especially when you wake up without sleep lines or bedhead.

    Model hugging a pillow with the silk pillowcase on it in black

    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. Plus, silk reduces friction, causing less pulling on both your hair and skin — leaving both looking and feeling better when you wake up in the morning.

    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 queen and king sizes and in nine colors).

    5. An air fryer designed to help you grill, roast, and bake up some delicious food in minutes. It uses "rapid air technology" to cook your food evenly and give you crispy fries, tasty veggies, and more without using any hot oil.


    And with more than 10,000 5-star reviews, people love this device to roast, bake, grill, fry, with very little oil.

    Promising review: "Before I found this amazing air fryer, I used to spend over $300 a year on gallons of vegetable oil alone. Now, I only spend less than $30! This amazing air fryer is super easy to use with clear, direct instructions and buttons on how to cook your food! If you are a busy person like me, I highly recommend this product, as I don't have all the time in the world to stand by the stove all day. You pop your food in the air fryer, set a time, and it will instantly cook it for you in a matter of minutes! It is amazing and WAY BETTER than a traditional microwave. The food comes out crispy, heated, and delicious. I can assure you that you use WAY LESS OIL than deep frying foods which is great for long term health! In this air fryer, I am able to cook a variety of foods such as chicken, cookies, bacon... ANYTHING YOU NAME IT! This air fryer is the BEST INVESTMENT I HAVE MADE UP TO DATE!" —Tiffany D.

    Get it from Amazon for $63.99+ (available in three sizes and black, white, and red).

    6. A breathtakingly beautiful cashmere coat so timeless and classic you'll be wearing it for years to come.

    Model wearing the below knee-length coat with large pockets and tie waist in beige

    Reclaim is a woman-owned business creating slow-fashion staples. The pieces are ethically made in Florence, Italy. This coat is a blend of 30% organic cashmere and 70% merino wool. It's dry clean only.

    Promising review: "I finally decided to get this coat after lusting over it for months. I am IN LOVE. It is so worth it for the price: luxurious, soft, sophisticated. So happy I made this investment. I love this brand so much now." —Cristina

    Get it from Reclaim for $375 (available in women's sizes XS-L)

    7. A set of food storage containers featuring air-tight lids so you can store your food in an aesthetically pleasing way, while also knowing that it will stay fresh until you're ready to use it.

    Promising review: "I have bought several of these sets, and I am absolutely in love with them!! I have had none of the issues I have seen listed here. I use them because they make it easier to store items in my pantry, such as rice, popcorn, pasta, sugar, flours, and other items for baking. I have not experienced bug infestations, humidity, easily breaking containers or lids. They clean easily, their shape makes storage easy, labels stick them till you are ready to remove the label. They are worth the investment." —DF Daugherty

    Get a 5-piece set from Amazon for $49.95 (also available in six other sets).

    8. A Oui the People single-blade razor made to give you one of the closest shaves of your life without leaving razor burn or in-grown hairs behind. Plus, it's not made of plastic, so you can use it forever and reduce your waste.

    Model using the rose gold-colored razor on their armpit
    Oui the People

    Oui the People is a Black-owned business creating innovative products that'll give you a close shave without ingrown hair and razor burn. The razor is made-to-order and will ship eight to 10 weeks after you place the order. It also comes with a pack of 10 blades. And if you need some help with how to use it, check out this also a handy page that teaches everything you need to know.

    Promising review: "This razor changed my life. I have always broken out in razor burn and ingrown hairs. I could only shave once every week at the most so I always had prickly legs. Once I started using the Oui the People razor, I have smooth silky legs because I can shave as often as I want. It's gentle on my skin and my ingrown and razor burn has almost disappeared (I've only had it two weeks). This is the best investment I've made for myself." —Carson Bute

    Get it from Oui the People for $75.

    9. A PhoneSoap UV sanitizer built specifically with UV-C bulbs to kill 99.99% of the bacteria and germs on your phone in as little as 10 minutes.


    I love my PhoneSoap. Honestly, I didn't use it that much before the pandemic started — maybe every once and a while, but since March, it has been in constant use. It's super easy to use. All you do is set your phone in it, close it, and press the lightning bolt button on it. The button will stay lit for the whole 10 minutes it's cleaning and turns off when it's done. It really has helped me have a bit of peace of mind in the last six months. And the device holds a charge for a long time. My whole family uses it, and we probably charge it maybe once a month. I highly recommend it.

    Promising review: "PhoneSoap was a great investment! It’s easy to use, and you can easily take it from room to room or even to use on-the-go if you have a place to plug it in at. It only takes 10 minutes for cleaning to take place and then you’ll have a germ free phone! So far, we’ve cleaned our phones, eyeglasses, comb, tweezers, and nail clippers in it. We’re so glad that PhoneSoap saves the day and will recommend it to everyone because who doesn’t want a germ free phone?!?!?!" —Hannah and Cory

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95.

    10. A Dyson Supersonic hair dryer (with high-velocity airflow to dry hair faster and prevent heat damage) so you can have luscious locks all the time.

    Dyson Hair / Via, Nordstrom

    The hair dryer comes with a smoothing nozzle, styling concentrator, diffuser, non-slip mat, and a storage hanger. It is said to increase smoothness by up to 75%, shine up to 132%, and decrease frizz and flyaways up to 61%.

    Promising review: "The first time I used my Dyson Supersonic, I noticed a difference in my hair. It feels so healthy — I love it. The Dyson makes my hair so soft and smooth. I love how quiet the Dyson is and how lightweight — I am glad I invested in myself." —Mary

    Get it from Nordstrom for $399 (available in black, pink, and silver).

    11. Stasher reusable storage bags great for anyone who's trying to reduce their plastic waste — plus, these bags can also be put in the microwave, freezer, dishwasher, boiling water, and even the oven (up to 400 degrees).

    Promising review: "These are definitely the best reusable zip bags. I have had others that tear or warp in the dishwasher. I was so sick of washing them by hand, so I took a look at these Stasher bags, and I am so glad I invested in them. No problems in the dishwasher, and I know they will last for years!" —Kaylee Cortese

    Get the sandwich size from Amazon for $11.99 (available in six sizes and 13 colors).

    12. A pair of Apl TechLoom wave sneakers made with a 3D-stretch knit so they're lightweight but still supportive enough for any type of workout you do — from strength training to a dance class.

    The knit sneakers in grey with grey laces and white soles

    Promising review: "Amazing shoe! Attractive style as well. I get so many compliments on these! Apl makes it feel like you are walking on air! I now own three pairs and won’t go with any other! I wear these for strength training, running, and just get around if I need to. I dread having to take them off because they are that comfortable! They are worth the investment and every cent spent!!" —Karra H.

    Get it from Apl for $225 (available in women's sizes 5-11).

    13. A Nespresso Vertuo with the power to make such delicious coffee at home you may never visit a coffee shop again. Just think how much money you'll end up saving with this smart investment.

    Reviewer pic of the machine, plus the aeroccino milk frother next to it and a drawer of pods under it

    Plus, it comes with a milk frother, so you can make your own lattes and cappuccinos.

    Promising review: "Nespresso machine is the best investment I have made in my kitchen. Since I tasted delicious coffee, I will never drink any other brand. I use to drink Starbucks daily, for which I would spend $6 a day, but now I ONLY spend a dollar or two (think of a long-term saving). I would definitely recommend this coffee maker. Thank you, Nespresso for making such a delicious coffee, I am in heaven each morning." —senada

    Get it from Amazon for $182.99+ (available in five colors, plus bundle options with the aeroccino (Nespresso's milk frother) and/or sets of coffee pods).

    14. An Allswell Supreme mattress that really says it all in the name — with a graphite and copper gel-infused memory foam layer, built-in Euro top, individually wrapped coils, and more, this mattress really goes the extra mile to make it feel like you're sleeping on a cloud at night.

    The grey mattress with the memory foam layer in a bed frame

    Promising review: "We compared The Supreme to different mattress stores, brands, and prices. We kept coming to the same conclusion, 'The Supreme is the best choice.' We dove in, and never looked back. The Supreme King size mattress supports you whether you're sitting up reading, or falling fast asleep. We are pleased with the additional comfort from the Eurotop. It helps to balance the great support from the coils. We're really satisfied and happy with our investment, and the sleep we get help us to reap rewards daily (or nightly!)." —Dreamer's Dream

    Get it from Allswell for $725+ (available in twin-cal king).

    15. A portable beauty fridge perfect for anyone who takes their skin care seriously and wants a way to keep their products fresh and ready for use.

    Promising review: "I love my mini-fridge! I use this to store my skincare products and masks. It was very easy to set up. I placed mine on my bathroom counter and just plugged it in. You’re able to select the warm or cool option on the back of the fridge. You’re not able to adjust the temperature, but that’s fine with me. I love the built-in mirror! You can adjust the lighting with a push of the main button. It’s very bright, and I don’t need to keep another mirror on the counter, so that’s a plus. Yes, you can hear it when it’s on, but it’s more of like when your typical AC unit kicks on in the house. It’s like background noise, it’s there but very subtle. When I close the bathroom door, I can’t even hear it. Doesn’t bother me a bit. I haven’t tried the warming option yet, but I can’t wait to try it out when. :) This is a great investment! It's very versatile." —Huong

    Get it from Amazon for $68.99.

    16. A knitted weighted blanket constructed from organic cotton, so it's an eco-friendly (and beautiful) way to help reduce anxiety and get deeper sleep.

    The chunky knit blanket in purple

    Bearaby is a woman-founded business creating beautiful weighted blankets made from sustainable materials. This blanket is made from natural organic cotton.

    Promising review: "My new napper is beautiful. I am still amazed that it is a weighted blanket until I try and pick it up!!! I feel like I’m still trying to get used to sleeping with it but so far it has worked better than I imagined it would. It is actually very soft and I enjoy covering up with it! This is a great investment as far as I’m concerned because I almost never sleep without having to take something. I have been a week now without anything except my new blanket!" —Michelle S.

    Get it from Bearaby for $249+ (available in 15, 20, and 25 lbs and in eight colors).

    17. An Embark dog DNA test for anyone who never has an answer when asked the question "What kind of dog is that?" The test screens for more than 350 breeds, types, and varieties. Plus, it tests for more than 190 genetic diseases, finds and connects you with other dogs that share DNA with yours, and gives you these results in as little as three to five weeks.

    The test results with a French Bulldog biting the corner
    Embark / Via

    That is me. I am the person who has no idea what to say when people ask what my family's dog is. Instead, I just look like this: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. This test is def something I want to invest in in the future.

    Promising review: "We were very curious to know what are dog was (we adopted her from a shelter and did not know her breeds). I decided to order this DNA test because the reviews were good and the price difference was quite stark between the next leading option, leading me to believe the product either did not provide as much info as this one, or did not work as well. I am glad we made the investment as this test told us her family tree info, scanned her for health risks, found dogs with matching DNA that are related to her, and more. People always find the results so interesting and I recommend this test to everyone." —Taylor Kai Waning

    Get it from Amazon for $199 or just the DNA test for $129.

    18. A Fellow Stagg electric pour-over kettle capable of giving minimalists (and nonminimalists alike) heart eyes because it is not only super chic, but it also will help craft the perfect cup of pour-over coffee or tea with its variable temperature control and precision heating.

    The black matte kettle with matching base

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about purchasing this item because most kettles on the market are priced lower than this, but I do have to say. ***It is worth every freaking penny.*** This kettle heats up lightning fast to the degree chosen, holds temp, is easy to pour, and it did make the best cup of coffee in my life. Another thing that sets this kettle apart from any other electric kettle really is that it is very very easy to clean! It is worth the investment." —Allison J.

    Get it from Amazon for $138.34 (available in black and silver).

    19. A compact air purifier complete with a three-stage filtration system to keep the air in your home free of dust, smoke, pollen, mold, pet hair, and more.,

    Promising review: "I bought this in January. It's April now, and I got to say, this was a good investment for me! I was having horrible sinus problems for a month, so I bought this one to help the process of clearing it out. About a few days in, I could say it really helped me sleep better and wake up without horrible congestion. It's quiet, sleek, the buttons make it feel high tech, and it's easy to replace a filter. Obviously, this alone won't help you if you are having sinusitis, but it definitely is a must-have for your room." —Alicia

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99+ (available in black and white).

    20. A drop-leaf wood-top steel-leg dining table that folds up small so you can use it as a console table and then when you have dinner guests, simply pull it out, lift the side leaves and pull the legs to reveal a table big enough to seat four.

    Crate & Barrel

    Plus, you can also just lift one of the sides and use the table as a desk, which is great if you're going to be working from home for a while now.

    Promising review: "This is a great quality dining table that is versatile for a small or larger space. When all the leaves are up, it's a good size table. We currently have a small kitchen, so we dropped one of the leaves to fit flush against the wall in the space, and it's perfect! We can fit three chairs comfortably around it when it's flush against the wall. The table is definitely a little pricier than other retailers, but we decided this was an investment piece that we will keep for years. We are very happy with this purchase!" —mcody

    Get it from Crate & Barrel for $699.

    21. THE Amazon jacket because WINTER IS COMING (gasps!) and this number will keep you warm and stylish through every temperature drop and snow storm the weather throws your way.,

    Promising review: "I'm SO glad I invested in this jacket. It has kept me warm and made my trip to colder climates so incredibly comfortable. I wore it in 30 degrees F, and it kept me very warm." —Michelle Orchid Rodriguez

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99 (available in women's sizes XXS-5X and in 13 colors).

    22. A Sorel sneaker boot combining the warmth and protection of a boot with the sleek design of a sneaker for a shoe you can wear all fall and winter without feeling like you're a giant clomping down the street as you walk.

    The sneaker-style shoe with white sole, olive green and dark grey body and laces.

    I can't be the only one that hates winter boots because of that feeling, right???

    Promising review: "I live in Minnesota, so warmth, traction, and waterproof are all priorities when looking for a shoe/boot. I actually refer to these as my 'shoe boots' because they are casual for every day — running errands, long walks, etc. I’ve gotten compliments every time I wear them, too! They are super easy to pull on (I don’t even unlace them) and incredibly comfy! I'm so so glad I invested! I already want another pair. :) I did notice the loose ankle as another review mentioned, but that’s okay with me. I’ll wear other taller legit boots for the real snowy days." —MNgirl

    Get them from Sorel for $160 (available in women's sizes 5-12 and in five colors) or Amazon for $159.95 (available in women's sizes 5-12 and in five colors).

    23. An Ugg plush throw blanket, because it's time to invest in a blanket that will actually keep you so warm and cozy you might not want to get off the couch at night to move to your bed.

    The fleece blanket in light blue

    Promising review: "This is the softest throw on the market. I'll admit the price can be a turnoff for most consumers. However. you get what you pay for. I've owned other throws in the past I've paid $16 for they aren't soft they serve the purpose of keeping you warm, and they tend to tear up after washing a few times and if you are like me you buy more to replace them. The Ugg Coastline throw is not only soft; it's very heavy and will keep you cozy and warm. It's actually a long throw, too, so it covers from my shoulders down to my feet. I'm so glad I invested in this throw. I actually purchased one in the store and once I got home I immediately ordered another online for my husband because I didn't have buyer's remorse as I normally would after paying so much for an item you'd use one season. Additionally, I knew he and my dog would eventually take mine, and I didn't want to share. I viewed the purchases as an investment. We will have both throws for years to come. We both hate the winter months but we both will be able to curl up on the couch on our individual throws and watch TV with our dog for seasons to come." — Iloveluxuryonabudget

    Get it from Nordstrom for $98 (available in six colors).

    24. An Instant Pot perfect for anyone who hates cooking (and even people who enjoy it) to make it so much easier to make delicious meals that you *might* stop making mac 'n' cheese three times a week.

    Reviewer picture of the circular-shaped InstaPot with a plate of breaded chicken in front of it

    It's a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan, yogurt maker, and food warmer all rolled into one snazzy appliance. (Check out our full review of the Instant Pot!)

    Promising review: "I have only had this item for about two weeks but have used it several times already. Two batches of yogurt, beef roast with carrots and potatoes, pork ribs, and a few other things have been made in my new Instapot. I have recently ordered an Instapot cookbook so that I may expand my culinary horizons with this cooker. Everything I have made so far has come out wonderful. This little wonder is very easy to use (much easier than my pressure canner, which has been used as a pressure cooker in the past). I love it, and I'm very glad I made the investment in this gadget!." —Laura

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in four sizes and four styles).

    25. An denim sherpa jacket, switching up the classic look of a denim jacket with a cozy lining to keep you stylish *and* warm.

    Model wearing the light blue denim jacket with fuzzy collar

    Promising review: "I really thought I could find a jacket like this at a cheaper price, but this is SO worth the investment! I ordered a size larger because I wanted to wear thick sweaters underneath and it fits exactly the way I wanted it to! The relaxed fit is so nice, and it's not cropped." —lexi

    Get it from Levi's for $128 (available sizes women's sizes XS–XL in five washes and a similar style in women's sizes 1X-4X).

    26. A Rocketbook smart reusable notebook that takes your hand-written notes and makes them digital so when your boss asks for a recap of that meeting in your one-on-one, you can send it as an attachment and look super on top of everything.

    Reviewer pic of the notebook open on a desk with notes neatly written on either side and two pens sitting next to it

    Promising review: "This has been a great investment for me. Rather than a bunch of legal pads scattered around, I now have everything in one place. When a note is done I scan it and off it goes as a pdf to a folder I can consult in the future. It does take a second for the ink to dry but this has not been a problem for me. Cleaning the pages is a breeze." —Ann G 24

    Get it from Amazon for $26.34 (available in two styles and eight colors).

    27. And the Snoo — a smart bassinet with automatic rocking motions and soothing white noise that may just be a lifesaver to new parents, because it's designed to help your newborn baby (up to 6 months) actually sleep at night.

    The oval-shaped bassinet in white with a wood bottom and white legs

    This may seem a little extravagant, but I used to work for parenting magazines, and this was all the rage. I had a coworker test it out, and she came back from maternity leave swearing by it. It detects when your baby is fussy and will rock and give off white noise to help them fall back asleep — so you can get more precious sleep at night and be better prepared to take care of your bundle of joy in the morning. It comes with three hip-safe sleep sack swaddles and an app to help you control the settings to fit your baby's needs.

    Promising review: "This is by far my best investment in baby swag! (And I am not a techy, trendy, or spendy person.) From the second I walked in from the hospital, my son took to it and sleeps like a champ in the Snoo. Or even better, he can be wide awake but lay there content swaying. It has enabled me, a single mom, to catch precious minutes and hours of sleep I might not otherwise have had the opportunity to get. So if you’re momming solo, or momming double-time with twins, INVEST!" —E. Pettit

    Get it from Amazon for $1,395.
