    1. An 18-bottle wine refrigerator for perfectly chilled wine whenever you want it.

    This freestanding wine cooler created the ideal temperature for wines that should be stored in 54º–64ΒΊF. It has 100% customer satisfaction guarantee.

    Promising review: "I bought this for my wife in our new house. We had custom cabinets and a huge island with a large void of unused space in the one side where the seating overhand was. I have since placed this chiller in that space and it works perfectly and is out of the way of everything. It has its own little hideaway undisturbed and has worked flawlessly since day one. My wife generally drinks sweeter wines and the temps available for this are perfect for storage and consumption of her choice drinks. The blue light inside adds a really nice affect when opening the cabinet and all controls are easy to use. It operates very quietly and I truly cannot even remember ever hearing it running. The smoked color glass provides a great look and the sleekness of it all really makes it a nice piece for display if need be. I have had no issues with heating inside the cabinets as I have plenty of space in the back of the machine. I will buy again and recommend highly to those looking into these products." β€”Ray

    2. A set of blackout curtains so you can pretend it's still night time and sleep late every day.

    Promising review: "I love these curtains! I moved to Florida and found out why it was called 'the sunshine state.' I was in desperate need of the blackout curtains so I can sleep in on the weekends and keep the heat out during the day. However, I didn't want to buy two layers (blackout curtain and prettier curtain to put over it). When I found this during Amazon Prime day, it was meant to be. It darkens my room significantly. I can't really even tell if there is any sunlight outside. Also, I keep the curtains closed during the day and it seems to be keeping the room slightly cooler, which is an added bonus!" β€”TinaYK

    Get them from Amazon $34.99+ (available in five sizes and 17 colors).

    3. A sound machine that'll lull you to sleep with a mix of noises like rain, thunder, ocean, and more.

    This has six natural sounds: rain, brook, ocean, thunder, white noise, summer night. You can leave it on all night or use the 15, 30, or 60 minute timer option. it can be powered by an AC adaptor (which is included) or three AA batteries.

    Promising review: "This is the BEST SOUND MACHINE EVER! I've purchased numerous sound machines over the years all claiming to produce natural sounding noise. Liars!! This sound machine is the 'real deal.' The sounds are so lifelike that it's almost spooky. If you close your eyes, you'll swear you were drifting along on the tide at the beach, or relaxing in a hammock during a summer shower. The sounds do a superb job of masking unwanted noise. Here's to a fantastic product." β€”Phil

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    4. A tabletop arcade game to make your home the go-to destination for a game night with friends.

    Get them from Urban Outfitters for $36 (available in foosball, basketball, and pool).

    5. A dual shower head to make your bathroom feel like a fancy hotel.

    Promising review: "This shower head is FANTASTIC. We've had it installed for a couple of months now, and bought a second to install in the other bathroom. First of all, I love that you can use the handheld shower head to rinse down the bathtub easily. I also love the range that the rainfall shower head can tilt. I honestly feel 10 times cleaner when I get out of the shower than I did with the rainfall shower head we had previously. I love all of the different settings. I'm sure my husband does too, but I REALLY LOVE all of the different settings. Let's just say shower time tends to be pretty long and I usually have a smile on my face by time I'm out of the shower. Sorry planet Earth, I promise all of that water went to good use. What I am saying is stop reading these reviews and just buy it already!" β€”Brann Family

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    6. A towel warmer rack because if you're going to spend the next three hours in it, it might as well be nice and toasty.

    This can stand on the floor or be installed onto the wall.

    Promising review: "My bathroom is on the north side of the house so it gets no direct sunlight. I love this product!!!! I keep it on all the time and it's so great to have a dry warm towel when I get out of the shower. I don't know why I waited so long to buy one. I never want to use a musty smelling damp towel again. I would definitely recommend!" β€”Mamaragcity

    Get it from Amazon for $66.75.

    7. A bathtub pillow for getting comfy during long luxurious soaks in the tub.

    Promising review: "This bath pillow is wonderful! I had the blow-up terry pillow and ditched it for this, and I am so glad I did. This pillow is extremely comfortable and the best pillow I have ever tried. It looks as though it would attach easily to any tub. My tub is curved, and there was no problem with it conforming to my tub. It stays put with no slippage. The suction cups hold very well. If you want to remove it, I recommend peeling the suction cups away with your fingernail to prevent ripping the pillow. I recommend removing it an placing it on the side of the tub to air dry so to prevent any mold from building up behind it. I highly recommend this bath pillow, it is the best I have tried, you will not be disappointed." β€”Christina

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    8. A hidden room behind a bookcase door that'll make you feel like you're in a James Bond movie every time you go inside.

    The door comes in unfinished wood and can be painted any color to match your room.

    Promising review: "This was easy to put together and install. It looks absolutely amazing. I could not be happier with the ease of installation! I would highly recommend to anyone that wants something that looks nice and wants some unique in their home!" β€”Matthew

    Get it from The Home Depot for $628.95+ (available in five sizes).

    9. A hanging lounge chair where you can sit back, relax, and enjoy the nice weather.

    Promising review: "I love this lounger! When I received the package containing the lounger in the mail I was at first very overwhelmed with the size of the box. It was a whopping 79 lbs! I should not have worried. Upon opening the package I was relieved to find that all the parts were securely wrapped and very well-made. Assembly took me about two hours but the product has everything you need with easy to understand instructions. Best of all is relaxing in this oasis on my patio! The lounger has a gentle rocking/bouncing motion that makes for the best naps. The fabric is tough and the built-in cushion and head rest are very comfortable. The attached umbrella is great and adjustable so I can re-position it depending on the position of the sun. This product is extremely well made and is enjoyed by the whole family!" β€”C.T.Mallier

    Get it from Amazon for $148.45+ (available in three colors).

    10. A set of string light curtains to transform your backyard into a magical fairytale.

    Promising review: "Love love these lights! I’ve hung them in my pool area and they give such a cool look at night. They are very easy to hang, but one piece of advice; hang the wire first before untying each string of lights. If you hang it first and then unravel each string of lights it goes easily and doesn’t get tangled up. I loved them so much I ordered five more to use in my front yard draped over my balcony near the entrance. It is very cool because you can hook them all together and then just use one power source to plug all of them in. The different light setting options are a great feature too." β€”Mya Bee

    Get them from Amazon for $15.99.

    11. A kid's play canopy for taking playtime to the next level.

    Get it from Crate and Barrel for $159.

    12. A terrarium side table β€” it'll look plant-astic in your living room!

    Plants and soil are not included.

    Promising review: "I adore this table and use it for my succulents. I get lots of compliments on it, and people always say how unique and cool it is. It was very easy to assemble and is very sturdy. I would absolutely recommend if you want an indoor succulent garden, or any sort of display table." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

    13. An interesting tassel chandelier or sconce to be the star of any space you put them in.,

    Get them from Anthropologie: chandelier for $228 (available in two colors) and sconce for $118

    14. A gold bar cart to display and serve your impressive selection of booze.

    Get it from Walmart for $109.21.

    15. A set of 10 airtight food storage containers for a Pinterest-worthy pantry.

    These are BPA-free and dishwasher-safe.

    Promising review: "I bought these to use in my pantry. We use them for flour, sugar, cereal, chips/crackers/cookies, candy, drink mix packets, etc. It's great to be able to quickly glance in the pantry and to be able to assess how much you have of an item without having to open the container. All of our food has stayed well protected and fresh. Because of the easy to push open and close lid, my lazy teen and tween are even capable of getting the containers closed (we've had many snacks, such as bags of chips and cereal, go stale because they were too lazy to seal the bags all the way). We've also discovered that the smaller container makes a good marble storage for my three-year old. He's able to easily open and close the container on his own when he plays with his marbles." β€”DCP

    Get them from Amazon for $98.93.

    16. An at-home media projector because you probably don't have enough space for an in-home theater...but this can be the next best thing.,

    Connects with smartphones, iPads, USB drives, Amazon Fire Stick, TV boxes, PCs, laptops, and game consoles. It has a 32”-176" display size.

    Promising review: "I wanted to add some outside movie adventure for the family but didn't want to get an extremely expensive projector in case we didn't enjoy it. The weekend after getting the projector we had our first movie night. After a little trial and error on projector placement, seating etc. we got down to business and LOVED it. To keep things simple we projected the screen onto our garage door which is white. We enjoyed it so much we watched movies and TV outside the next three nights (four in a row). Connecting the projector to a laptop allowed us to watch DVD's, stream Netflix (wifi reaches outside) and other online services. We even setup a tent and watched a movie outside during a light sprinkle. Setting up the projector is quick while the family gets the chairs, snacks, etc. Now that the weather's changed, the kids have the projector setup in the basement to watch movies with their friends. Great investment for family/group entertainment." β€”Christopher D. Kam

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

    17. A fun pool float that'll most likely be in 90% of your Insta photos this summer.

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    18. A robotic vacuum because a true dream home would be one that you never have to clean.

    Includes Roomba 690 Robot vacuum, home base charging station, a dual mode virtual wall barrier (two AA batteries Included), an extra filter, a flat cleaning tool, a manufacturer's warranty, and an owner's guide and documentation package. Can pair with Alexa or Google assistant and can be manually controlled with an app on your smart phone.

    Promising review: "This does a really good job on my hardwood floors and low pile rugs. I am always surprised at how much is in the dirt cup each time. I worried that it might fall down the stairs but never does! I also love the wifi ability and the app on my phone! It is not too noisy and this one does not bang into furniture like the previous generation did. It is amazing how much dirt it picks up and I LOVE how clean the floors under the beds are now! I am also amazed at how it can get itself unstuck when getting into a tight spot or dealing with cords. My hubby was very skeptical but mentioned the other day how the floors have never been so clean! I highly recommend!" β€”Tommye Sigerfoos

    Get it from Amazon for $299.

    19. A lounger you may never want to get up from.

    Get it from PB Teen for $169.

    20. A microfiber hypoallergenic sheet set to put luxurious hotel sheets to shame.

    Promising review: "I ordered these on a whim because I wanted nice looking sheets that would be cooler, but still soft. I was so impressed with these! They're incredibly soft right out of the package, and they really are pretty wrinkle resistant. Even after sleeping in them they stayed pretty crisp. The pillow cases are very soft and comfy to sleep on. I like that these sheets are lightweight; they're perfect for summer time! They're also an amazing color (I ordered the silver-like color). I may order more sets in other colors to replace some sheets I have now! These are amazing! They're also great for allergies. I have had breathing problems with other sheets, and have had no problems with these." β€”Lindsey L.

    Get them from Amazon for $22.99+ (available in 37 colors and nine sizes).

    Get it from Nordstrom for $69.95 (available in nine colors).

    25. A screen backlight that'll make your TV watching experience so much more lit.

    Promising review: "This has completely changed my entire experience watching my TV and using my computer at my desk with my 32inch monitor. I have a Luminoodle placed behind each screen and I can honestly say this has been the single best purchase I have made in a long time. I was skeptical at first as to how this would actually be effective. After using it for just five minutes, I was amazed at how nicely this lit up behind each screen and eased eye strain and lit up the room just enough to be able to see but have all the focus on the screen. A must have!" β€”Didactic_oz

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in four sizes).

    26. A reclining sofa for a comfy but stylish addition to your living room.

    Get it from West Elm for $2,548.

    27. A color-changing lightbulb you can change to set different moods.,

    Promising review: "This LED Light bulb is by far the coolest invention. To be able to change the color of your light with a push of a small remote button is just awesome. You can change it for every holiday you want or leave it alone and it rotates all of the colors. It's amazing how many different color options there are. Very unique, I keep mine on green because my son is in the Marines. I just purchased a second one. It makes a really cool house warming gift for someone too. So I will definitely be purchasing many more of these to give out as gifts. I promise you won't be disappointed. My recommendation is to BUY it, now." β€”KMP

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    28. A countertop faux-granite paint kit that'll make your ugly or outdated countertops look like they cost a million bucks without actually spending a million buck to change get new ones.

    The kit includes primer/base coat, 6 oz. greystone, 6 oz. quartzite, 8 oz. white limestone, 3 oz. white limestone, 16 oz. glitter topcoat, 6” Giani roller arm, and two roller pads, 4” Giani paint sponge, 2” foam brush, and a practice board. It's ideal for use on Formica, laminate, Corian, ceramic tile, butcher block, cultured marble, and traditional granite. Each kit covers 35 square feet.

    Promising review: "When we moved into our house, it still had the 1970s kitchen with yellow laminate countertops. I decided to give this kit a try, expecting it would be a good solution for about six months, until we could get new countertops. 16 months later, and it is still going strong! I did have to buy an extra can of white paint and an extra can of the polyurethane, but I love how it turned out. I did not remove the sink and just caulked around the edges with a clear caulk. I haven't had any problems with chipping or peeling, even when water was left on the countertop for too long. We will have to replace the countertop in the next year or so, just because the base laminate was peeling along the edges, but that has nothing to do with the Giani kit. I would definitely recommend for those on a budget." β€”A. Wilcox

    Get it from Amazon for $79.95.

    29. A velvet swivel club chair to make your living room look luxurious and give you a comfy place to sit.

    Get it from Overstock for $158.49 (available in two colors).

    30. A pack of three motion sensor LED lights for lighting up places where the sun (and lamps) don't shine, like under your cabinets and in the back of your closet. They also make the perfect night lights!

    Promising review: "These little lights are awesome! They come with magnets on the back for hanging and they also include two-sided sticky applicators if you want to use on a non-magnetic surface. Hubby thought I was a little crazy when I told him I was buying them so my armoire would light up for me to see my clothes whenever I opened the door. He's not laughing now! I only used one and it worked perfectly! It's been about six months and I haven't had to change the batteries at all. The second I mounted underneath a built-in cabinet in the archway between living/dining areas and one on the pole of a floor lamp at the bottom of the stairs in the living room. They work wonderfully as night lights and couldn't be happier. I plan on buying a few more for those dark closet shelves." β€”JKLineberry

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99.

    31. A fun temporary wallpaper to give your space that WOW factor without the commitment.

    Get it from Society 6 for $49+ (available in three sizes, and thousands of designs).

    32. A Weber gas grill that'll make your backyard the go-to spot for summer barbecues whether you like it or not!

    This propane grill has a 424 sq. inch cooking area. It has porcelain-enameled cast-iron cooking grates that'll give your food those grill marks you only see on FoodNetwork!

    Promising reviews: "We absolutely love this grill. My husband and I researched online for the best grill before we decided on this one. It got the best recommendations and the highest grades from the videos we watched and it did not disappoint! It cooked our steaks evenly with great grill marks. I would definitely recommend this grill. It's definitely worth the money." β€”Donna

    "I cannot say enough good things about this grill. It's beautiful, well-constructed, starts easily and consistently, and reaches the highest temperature in less than 15 minutes. It was delivered through Amazon and arrived in mint condition. I decided to assemble it myself. I'm a senior woman who doesn't use tools too often, so I had doubts if I could do this. Yes, there are a lot of nuts, screws, and pieces...and yes, there were a lot of steps (25) to assemble it, but the instructions that came with this grill were GREAT. They were clear, intuitive, and EASY to follow!! Possibly the best-written assembly instructions I've ever used! I was extremely careful to do it correctly, so it might have taken longer than most, but I finished in a little over two hours WITHOUT feeling frustrated or overwhelmed. Also, because I did it myself, I know every facet of the grill and feel it may help in the future if I ever need to troubleshoot anything. Regarding the price, I say 'you get what you pay for.' My last Weber grill far out-lasted my friend's cheaper grills, always lit on the first click, and maintained even cooking temps. For all these reasons, without hesitation, I recommend this grill!" β€”Joan B.
