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

    Promising review: "I bought this hammock chair as a birthday gift for my daughter, and she loved it so much. The hardware set is high quality and all are easy to install. My daughter also spread a blanket and a pillow over the chair to make it more comfortable. Well worth it for the price." —Morgan Richards

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    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.

    3. A laptop desk to ensure your computer is at a proper level so you don't strain your eyes or neck.


    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 $35.99 (available in three styles).

    4. Some string lights to transform your bedroom into a magical wonderland you'll be dreaming about when you, inevitably, are forced to leave your home.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these lights. I bought them for my dorm in college because bad lighting puts me in a weird mood. These lights are beautiful and made the room feel warm, cozy, and homey. They also helped with 'winter blues' that I always get because I live in Michigan and the winter weather is always cold and gloomy, so having nice lighting helped a lot. I received tons of compliments on them every time someone came into my room. I love these lights so much that I bought another set to hang in my room at home. Just buy these beautiful lights!" —Madelynn K.

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99.

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


    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 $58.22 (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).


    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 3 adults. Chaise is short but loungeable. It's a great purchase!" —Jennifer Bankston

    Get it from Amazon for $334.99+ (available in light grey, dark grey, and beige).

    7. A canopy you probably wanted as a child but your mom said is your chance to finally realize your dreams. I believe in you.


    Promising review: "This was a reat purchase, especially for the price! I ordered the canopy for my daughter's birthday. It's everything that I wanted. It's pretty and large enough to surround her full-size bed. She loves it, and it adds that 'extra' to her room. I highly recommended." —beachgirl619

    Get it from Amazon for $22.95.

    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.


    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 $32.99+ (available in four sizes and 34 colors).

    9. And a woven basket to store your blankets in when you're not using them. Yes, I know that seems unrealistic, but you can't always be wrapped in all your blankets. It's okay to take a break every now and then.


    Promising review: "This was exactly what I was looking for to store my blankets in. We got two to store next to each sofa in our family room. It drove me crazy that no one else would fold the blankets up. This way I can roll and neatly store them, or just throw them in there for a quick cleanup. It would probably work great for toys. I didn't notice any smell that other reviewers complained about. They are very durable. We have one super heavy king-sized throw that has its own basket, the other one we fit 4 various-sized throw blankets inside." —G. Gordon

    Get it from Amazon for $40.52+ (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.


    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 the 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 $133.99 (available in white, black, and brown).

    11. A 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 $14.99+ (available in three sizes and in white and grey).

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


    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 $9.99 (available in eight sizes and in 32 colors).

    13. A faux sheepskin area rug to place on the floor next to your bed (or anywhere else, TBH) – 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 that what it actually is. It looks great on my living room." —Silvia Gallegos

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

    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 five sizes and seven colors).

    15. A faux fur blanket to keep over your *main* blanket for an extra layer of warmth at night (it's also the perfect thing to cozy up under while you read that book everyone's been talking about).


    Promising review: "I love this blanket! It's extremely soft, even after my cat steals it and drags it around my apartment." —bagel

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in five sizes and in 17 colors).

    16. A set of floating shelves so you have a place to put your collection of succulents to create wall decor that adds some life to the room.


    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 $17.98+ (available in light brown and dark brown and in four variations).

    17. A set of velvet curtains designed to not only look super nice but also block out light *and* keep the room warmer so your electricity bill goes down, which I would call a win-win-win.


    Promising review: "I purchased these for my studio, which is in an old mill. I wanted them for their insulating properties more than to block out the light because my studio loses a lot of heat at night due to its enormous windows. The curtains/drapes work great for both — I am especially pleased with how well they help keep the space from losing heat! Before having the curtains, the space would lose about eight degrees in temperature overnight (which in the winter is a significant amount, especially in the northeast). Now, with the curtains, the space no longer loses heat overnight! It is now so nice to go into my studio in the morning and find it still toasty warm!" —Noname

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four sizes and seven colors).

    18. A faux fur ottoman that'll serve as a soft place to rest your feet or an extra seat when your friends come over because they're wondering what all the big fuss is when it comes to your home.


    Promising review: "I love this ottoman/footrest. It adds class to the room and is very comfortable. It's great quality. I highly recommend this for anyone who is into the shag faux fur look. It's very chic!" —Bradley

    Get it from Amazon for $56.99+ (available in white, black, and pink).

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


    Promising review: "This is a GIANT blanket! It looks beautiful at the end of my bed and is something I use to snuggle up in when I read at the end of the night. It's perfect for both sprucing up and softening a room AND for keeping you warm. Definitely going to be buying more for other rooms in my home." —Sherry Nims

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99+ (available in 12 sizes and 14 colors).

    20. A bean bag chair for when you want to switch it up and sit somewhere other than your couch or bed.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this! I use the chair for reading and love how easy it is to adjust, as well as the fact that it will also hold its shape and position pretty well. When I first got the box I thought it was empty because of how light this is. I frankly think it's even better than the traditional bean bag chairs that were much heavier. I recommend this 100% and would buy this again!" —Natalie R

    Get it from Amazon for $67.99+ (available in nine styles).

    21. A 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.


    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 $60.21+ (available in seven styles).

    22. 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 $10.98+ (available in eight sizes).

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


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

    Promising review: "These candles really look and feel like lit wax candles. They are safe and add such a nice ambience to any room. The candles are white, but when they are turned on, they have a very nice ivory white glow to them. They are a nice addition to a room without the hot flame. They add a special warmth and cozy inviting atmosphere to our home." —Lyuba P.

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in white and ivory).

    24. A stand-up pillow filled with memory foam that will support you no matter how many hours you decide to watch Netflix in bed.


    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 styles and in grey and navy).

    25. A bath pillow so when you've had a hard day and need to unwind a bit, you can take a bath and feel so comfortable you might feel like you're actually at a spa.


    Promising review: "I love it! I've been annoyed for a long while now with laying my back against a cold, hard surface while trying to relax in the tub. I've owned those blow-up type pillows before, but they were a pain, always losing their air and their buoyancy caused them to continually lose suction. This pillow is thick, comfortable, and stays stuck very well. I've taken about 6 baths with it so far with no problems." —Mama-O

    Get it from Amazon for $12.50.

    26. And a bathtub caddy tray 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.


    The two-sided tray has extendable handles and accessory slots to fit books, magazines, or even an electronic device. It's waterproof and has non-slip silicone grips. The sides extend up to 43 inches to accommodate most bathtubs.

    Promising review: "I love this caddy tray. It took a while for me to review. I needed to test it out a few times. Royal Craft Wood really had taken the time to construct this product for consumers. I did not know that the soap dish and small tray were removable/interchangeable. It's very convenient for additional space or storing elsewhere in the tub. The product comes with strips to place where you desire to prevent the wood from scratching your porcelain tub. Did I say I love it?!" —Lahina_1821

    Get it from Amazon for $46.97.

    27. A shag rug to turn any hardwood floor into a soft place to land (and walk on).


    Promising review: "I can't believe how incredibly soft and cozy this rug is! And considering the price too, how big it is. I bought this to go under my daughter's loft bed to make a little reading nook for her. But after it arrived, now we're ordering one for the living room and my oldest daughter's room too. Well worth it! Very happy with this purchase!" —Kristin

    Get it from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in four sizes and 25 styles).

    28. And a electric blanket to take things up a notch when it's a little chilly in your home and you need an extra dose of warmth.


    Promising review: "This throw is perfect for those chilly days. It is so soft and plush, keeps you warm and helps save on electric living in a big house. It also easy to wash and dry comes out feeling soft and there is no pilling like other heated throws and blankets. I am going to buy one for my mom, we are always cold and this is the perfect blanket. It even looks great on my sofa. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a nice inexpensive heating blanket. It's well worth it." —ACUSTOMER

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.
