    Promising review: "Very soft and light weight. Exactly what I was looking for. I generally get too hot most of the time so I was looking for a light summer blanket for the couch. It’s very soft on your skin. Directions say it’s machine washable but not to put it in the dryer. Well, I put mine in the dryer on super low heat delicate and it did just fine and didn’t shrink. I live in south Florida so we don’t really get very cold here." —Nurse727

    Get it from Amazon for $34.89+ (available in three sizes and three colors). 

    2. Ceramic dessert bowls in a selection of pastels that are so pretty you'll want to eat every salad, soup, and sundae in these lil' guys.


    Promising review: "Absolutely love these bowls! We also got the dinner plates and salad plates and am so happy after searching for a nice set that I found one everyone loves. I’m so happy with this purchase." —Christina

    Get a set of six bowls from Amazon for $29.99 (available in three colors).

    3. Colorful drinking glasses that resemble rare Depression-era glass (that's a tough vintage find)! These are ideal for all summertime cocktails and mocktails.

    Promising review: "Was looking for glasses with easy gripping for the summer for ice drinks. Bought this set and already like them a lot. The four colors work great for our family of four so we don’t confuse ourselves. They are heavyweight though, if you are looking for anything as lightweight as bone china. Good quality and they look nicer in person." —Kejun

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $29.99

    4. A set of metal vase frames for displaying real or faux blooms. Place a few of these on your floating shelves as gorgeous accents.

    Promising review: "These little vases are so cute and add a modern flare to table decor. I plan to purchase more for a larger tablescape." —Nicole Taylor

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in gold and rose gold). 

    5. Some faux ivy to spruce up any sad window sill or headboard with some lively greenery.,

    Promising review: "These vines are perfect for adding a pop of greenery to any room. They drape nicely over curtain rods and are easy to hang. I like that they come bound with a little bread tie so they are not tangled. They arrive in a ziplock plastic bag, which you could also use for storage. They do smell bad right out of the bag — a typical plasticky fake garland smell — but honestly, the smell faded within hours, and it’s totally worth it because they are high quality. The plastic part is thin and not bulky like some fake vines and garlands I’ve purchased, and the leaves feel silky — that’s why these drape easily and delicately, and they don’t look cheap. All in all, this was a great purchase, and I’m planning to buy more!" —T. Nicole Cirone

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    6. A gorgeous tapestry in case you need some mood-boosting wall art or backdrop for all your future photo opps.

    Promising review: "Beautiful. Just as described. The fabric is really light and thin, which made hanging super easy. That said, the image quality is SO good for the price. It seriously looks like textured, thick fabric. Also love the color combo. Very relaxing for my meditation corner." —Mallory R.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.49+ (available in four sizes).

    7. A realistic moon-shaped light so you can ~finally~ read by the glow of moonlight. Isn't she a beaut?!, Amazon

    Promising review: "I originally bought the 7-inch moon for my husband as a gift of 'I love you to the moon and back' for our anniversary... Well, I loved his moon so much that I kept stealing it from our bedroom and taking it to the living room. So I bought myself the 5.9-inch moon to compare sizes and have one to call my own. As it turns out, the slightly smaller 5.9-inch one is just as amazing as the seven-inch. These moons charge up fast with a cord (with a cool 'blue moon' color when charging) and then once charged, they are completely free from cords or any connection dependence. They light up with a very detailed real moon surface design in white or yellow, and it will totally mesmerize you. You can literally 'hold the whole moon in your hand' and use it as a cordless and battery-free lamp, a nightlight, a lantern or quasi-candle in the dark. The wood stand is sleek and super easy to assemble, and is a perfect accent to any room décor. These moons are the best gift for friends, family, co-workers, kids, pets and spouses. My #1 purchase pick for 2020!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in four sizes).

    8. Mirrored decals to display in any pattern or design your heart desires. Using mirrors will help expand the look of your space and add an eye-catching wall focal point.

    Promising review: "Considering the price, it’s pretty good. It's easy to install and it makes a boring wall more interesting. As others said, it’s not glass. Glass would probably be way more difficult to install for a similar effect though. This works just fine and only involves peeling and sticking." —Me

    Get a set of 12 pieces from Amazon for $12.98.

    9. A handmade moon phase garland to hang over your bed for some aesthetically pleasing cosmic vibes.

    Promising review: "I'm an incoming freshman this fall and I bought this to add some personality to my dorm. It has beyond exceeded my expectations! I placed it directly on top of my dorm bed as shown in the display photos and am so pleased with how it looks. It fits perfectly with the grey/white color scheme I was going for and have received numerous compliments from both my friends and RAs when they've visited. I cannot stress enough how much of an 'aesthetic feel' it adds to my dorm." —jhsgf

It’s just the right size and feels strong and durable, so I’m confident it should hold up for years to come. If you were on the fence about purchasing don’t hesitate, it’s worth it for whatever your needs are!" —C.Cruz

    Promising review: "If you, like me, find the tick tick tick of your clock super annoying, then this Geekclick Wall Clock is the clock for you! It makes absolutely no noise. It is also very nice looking. The gold really pops. Another great feature is that the numbers are really big and clear, not like other clocks that just have slashes instead of numbers. It is a great value for the money!" —lisa k.

With these, that issue is solved and as a bonus, things like pasta are much easier to serve and eat. They are very well made and heavy." —CNorris
