    1. A bento box bowl so gorgeous, you'll want to bring your lunch to work more just so you can show this off to your coworkers.

    2. A facial massager kit that honestly may look a little strange, but the tools are made to help your skin look even better than it already does.

    3. A set of hedgehog dryer balls to help keep your clothes looking ~sharp~ and to help them dry in less time, meaning you have more time to do things other than opening the dryer, feeling wet clothes, and saying, "Ugh, not again!!"

    4. A cold brew tea bottle that has a built-in filter so you can make tea and feel fancier than the Queen of England at the same time.

    5. A magnetic balance lamp so unique and cool that it's basically a piece of art that also adds some light to the room.

    6. A wine decanter to make that cheap bottle you bought seem not as cheap by aerating it to make the flavor even stronger.

    7. A Billie razor designed to actually make shaving easier so you'll probably actually be excited to shave your legs this winter for the first time in, well, forever.

    8. A set of six coasters that absorb any liquid that drips from cold drinks so it doesn't end up on your nice furniture.

    10. A foldable reusable bag you should always keep with you. You really never know when you're going to be out and walk by a Trader Joe's with no line that is just begging for you to come in and purchase at least three bags of the cauliflower gnocchi...

    11. A decorative window film so you can let light in your home 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.

    12. A set of metal rainbow straws because doing your part for the environment doesn't have to ~suck~ at all. Actually, it can be pretty fun, especially when you get to use cool products like this.

    13. A mini beauty fridge you can keep in your room so nobody in your home opens the fridge and tries to eat your face mask.

    14. A reusable silicon bag with so many uses, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it. Need to steam vegetables? Check! Freeze fruit for smoothies? Double-check! Pack a sandwich? Triple check!

    15. A storm glass weather predictor filled with crystals that transform based on how the temperature changes to let you know if it's going to rain or snow, maybe even better than your weather app can.

    16. A two-in-one strainer and bowl set that's incredibly functional – all you have to do is tip the bowl to get the water out.

    17. A modern-looking jewelry box to keep all your precious jewels (or cheap earrings, whatever your vibe is) organized and looking great in your room.

    18. A measuring cup set you'll feel absolutely regal using as you watch Great British Bake-Off and try baking something delicious for yourself.

    19. A Dagne Dover duffle bag (now with a sleeve you can put over your suitcase) that's worth the splurge because it has so many convenient pockets and fits SO much, you'll be able to fit everything you need for a flight in it...and then swiftly put it under your seat to avoid the Hunger Games-style fight for overhead bin space.

    20. A planter set to help turn your wall into a place you can keep your ~growing~ plant collection.

    21. A sleek silverware tray because just letting your utensils sit in a pile really shouldn't ~slide~ anymore. You're better than that.

    22. A set of decorative hooks you'll be ~hooked~ on so fast, you might order more immediately and turn your home into a really cool modern art exhibit.

    23. A set of packing cubes so chic, you'll definitely feel like your clothes are flying in first class, even if you're not. *Sigh* Maybe one day you both will.

    24. A splurge-worthy salt and pepper shaker set you may think should belong in MoMA rather than on your kitchen counter.

    25. A flower trivet mat meant to protect your tabletop from hot dishes while also acting as super cute wall decor when you're not using it.

    26. An AeroGarden that will give you the opportunity to grow fresh herbs no matter if you haven't been able to keep a plant alive for longer than a few months – this device makes killing them *almost impossible.

    27. A set of geometric stacking trays you can use in a variety of different ways, such as storing your jewelry, serving food, or just holding random trinkets. The possibilities are endless.

    28. A toilet brush because we all need one of these in our bathroom to help keep it clean, so it might as well work as decoration as well.

    29. A float kitchen organizer to keep all your most-used utensils within arm's reach and also to make your kitchen feel so fancy, it might even look like it belongs in a Nancy Meyer's movie.

    30. A mist hand sanitizer you'll actually want to carry around to help stop any germs from trying to take you down this winter. You're stronger than that. 💪

    31. A trash can with a handle because sometimes getting a ~grip~ on life means realizing it's okay to want to look at a nice trash can every day. It's the little things in life, you know?

    32. A Stagg stovetop pour-over with a built-in brew range thermomenter to help you make the perfect cup of coffee every single time.

    33. An olive oil and vinegar dispenser – everyone who sees it will have an ~oily~ good time looking at and exclaiming, "Wow, that's so cool!"
