    From now until August 30th, you can score great deals on SO many things, especially items for your home.

    There are hundreds of kitchen, bathroom, and bedroom items at a steep discount.

    To help you get started, we found the items that are actually worth buying for your home:

    1. A guava cutting board that'll add a touch of fun and whimsy to your kitchen and also give you a place to cut your veggies for dinner.

    Round cutting board with illustrations of the insides of guavas and green leaves all over

    Promising review: "This is beautiful! One side is meant for cutting and the other is decorative. It’s about 12” in diameter. I purchased this at Anniversary because the price was so great and I loved the design — I thought it would make a great gift. However, when it arrived I was so pleased with it that it immediately went against my kitchen backsplash. It is (of course) functional, but I will likely just use it as a cheery piece of kitchen art." —Orygun

    Price: $22.90 (originally $35)

    2. A ribbed hand towel specifically designed to be super absorbent so your towel doesn't end up dripping any water on the floor. (Because that's just uncalled for.)

    The ribbed hand towel with vertical lines in teal

    Promising review: "Shopping online can be tricky, but their towels are exactly what I expected! The ribbing in the towel is so unique and comfortable. They are getting softer with washing and look so sharp!!" — MaryHR

    Price: $9.90 (originally $19; available in four colors)

    3. A small aromatherapy diffuser compact enough that you could pack it to travel with you but strong enough that it will still fill the room with a scent of your choosing.

    The small diffuser sitting on a table with mist coming out of the top and a battery pack sitting next to it

    This diffuser has three-hour continuous operations, six-hour intermittent operation, and an automatic shut-off. It uses water and natural essential oils (which are not included).

    Promising review: "I really like this little diffuser! I use it in my office, and it's great in a relatively small space. I already bought a second one as a gift! Planning to take it with us on a trip soon — it's super simple to use, low maintenance, and runs for a long time on a relatively small amount of water." — KelseyLBC

    Price: $14.90 (originally $29.99; available in green and white)

    4. A Corkcicle stainless steel canteen designed to keep drinks cold for up to 25 hours and hot for up to 12 hours, so you can use it all year long for every type of beverage from wine to coffee.

    The silver canteen with a lid on the top and the word "Corkcicle" in purple on the bottom side

    Plus, it's dishwasher safe, so you can clean it easily when you're done using it.

    Promising review: "I’m beyond loving this canteen. It’s totally cute and aesthetic. Just making me look cute when I'm holding it, haha. Plus, this canteen keeps the warm and cold drink good for long hours. You have to buy it believe me." — wckchant

    Price: $22.90 (originally $34.95)

    5. A lattice duvet cover to add a simple yet elevated look to your bed.

    Promising review: "I am a touchy-feely kind of person so I was a little nervous about ordering this online. When I got it and put it on the bed, it fit perfectly on my comforter. The quality is there, the cuteness is there and I love it. So happy with my purchase; I would definitely recommend it." —JennyDee

    Price: $69.90+ (originally $79.99+; available in sizes full/queen and king)

    The print is 11" x 13".

    Promising review: "I love this picture. I bought it for my office and it’s perfect. The only thing I think is inaccurate is that the wall art is not as bright as presented in the picture. Instead, the color is a bit more faded." — Alexandria1122

    Price: $28.90 (originally $39)

    7. A floral comforter and sham set that'll brighten up your bedroom and make you want to go to bed earlier so you can snuggle under this beauty for longer.

    Floral comforter in navy with purple and green flowers all over it on a bed with pillows with floral and butterflies on them

    Price: $189.90+ (originally $290+; available in twin, full/queen, and king)

    8. A set of red wine glasses, two with stems and two without, so you can choose which one you want to drink out of each night.

    Price: $58.90+ (originally $89+; available in sizes twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king and in five colors)

    13. A retro-style toaster designed with extra long and wide slots so you can fit whatever you want to toast inside without sacrificing any of the style of your kitchen.

    The toaster in shiny rose gold with two slots and the word "Smeg" on the side sitting on a kitchen counter

    Promising review: "This is such a beautiful addition to our kitchen! When you pick it up it has a little weight to it, so it doesn’t feel cheap. You can dial in the exact amount of toasting once you figure out your taste and it’s very consistent. Really simple to use with very straight forward controls. I can’t say enough about the style as it can’t get any better." —Peabopp

    Price: $171.90 (originally $229.95; available in gold and rose gold)

    Promising review: "These curtains are absolutely gorgeous and even more beautiful than the pictures. It is a light metallic silver color with a bit of a sheen. They really look and feel luxurious. They have a nice weight to them too. They are exactly what I wanted, and I couldn't be happier with the purchase. Do not hesitate to buy!" —Shar0nil

    The wall art with a big wave in a brown frame sitting on a dresser

    Promising review: "Like this picture a lot. The frame is really beautiful and unique. I hung it right up in our bedroom. The colors in the picture are not bright; they are more muted which goes perfectly with the color scheme in our room." ¸— LASid

    Price: $28.90 (originally $39)

    17. A leopard-print throw blanket for when you're feeling a little ~wild~, and by wild I mean, you're going to curl up and watch your favorite movie on Friday night while eating your favorite snacks.

    The plush throw blanket with a brown leopard print all over one side and the corner flipped to show the lighter color brown inside

    Price: $49.90 (originally $79)

    18. A linen and cotton duvet cover perfect for year-round use, because the fabric is meant to breathe when it's warm out yet still be cozy when there's a chill in the air.

    The duvet color in tan on a bed with pillows on it

    The set of five candles in a row with labels on the front that say what the scents are

    The set includes a Baies candle (berries and rose scents), Feu de Bois candle (wood smoky scents), Figuier candle (tree and fig scents), Narguile candle (honey, tobacco, and spices scents), and a Roses candle (floral rose bush scents).

    Promising review: "I love this set and will absolutely repurchase again! Diptyque candles smell so good and are such a nice little luxury item. I broke this up and used them as gifts. Great value!" —PeaceofReese

    20. An embroidered accent pillow that comes with a removable lavender pouch to add a calming scent to wherever you place the pillow.

    The grey throw pillow with embroidered pattern on the front sitting on a bench

    Promising review: "It is hard to tell that this pillow is made of 30 recycled bottles. The fabric is very sturdy and the pillow is well made. The pattern is elegant. The lavender baggie that is concealed in an inner pocket inside the pillow is just a great idea. The scent is not offensive or overwhelming. These pillows are a great addition to my living room sofas." —MHAXT

    Price: $34.90 (originally $50)

    21. A bath towel designed to get softer with each wash (if you don't use fabric softener and dryer sheets, which can compromise the absorbency).
