    1. An adjustable standing desk to help create your coveted WFH office space. Once you get tired of standing, you can always pull up a chair and continue on with your workload.

    adjustable standing desk

    Promising review: "Very good desk! Assembly was easy, but heavy. It fits my two 24 inch monitors + docking station for my laptop. The drawer is a bonus. The only complaint is that I am a short person and the desk's shortest height is 28 inches high, which is still slightly too tall for me ergonomically. I mostly raise it higher so I can stand during the day during work instead. Overall, it is sturdy and I would recommend it." —Jessica

    Get it from Wayfair for $289.99 (originally $399.95; available in four colors).

    2. A sturdy suitcase so you'll have it on hand when you're finally able to embark on all your bucket list ~travel the world~ plans.


    Promising review: "I ordered the large check in in rose quartz and it is absolutely beautiful. I like the minimalist design and how light weight it is. The quality of the craftsmanship is amazing and the bag is well worth the cost if not more (this is coming from a frugal person). Due to COVID-19 I haven't traveled with it yet, but I can't wait to explore the world with this bag by my side. I've rolled it around the house on different surfaces such as carpet, wood, and concrete and it had no problems swiveling on each surface. The inside of the bag is spacious and overall I like it." —Serita H.

    Get it from Monos for $267 (originally $356).

    3. A Nike puffer coat because you're all about that ~swoosh~ life. It's made from sustainable materials and zippered pockets for stowing your keys and wallet securely.

So far I have no regrets, my doggy loves your mattress. Would I recommend Casper. to friends; I already do. You should pay me for word of mouth advertising. Love love my Mattress. Can't improve it, but you can try." —Jeanette Malhotra

    Best Buy

    Promising review: "My wife and I decided to replace our very old, outdated microwave with something a little more modern and sleek. This Samsung fit the bill perfectly. It has a number of built-in functions right off the bat, but all and all it works as you'd expect any microwave to. It doesn't have any excessive bells and whistles that I worry about breaking, but is a sturdy, over the range microwave. Power level is adjustable, but factory default seems to be fine so far!" —Aaron

    Promising review: "I bought this primarily to use as an alarm clock and it's rather obvious that is what Amazon had in mind with this smart device. It was incredibly easy to connect to my wifi, setup, and personalize with my own photos. You have options on selecting the clock face. Whole process took about 40 minutes. Be prepared to input your wifi password, and answer a few questions to complete setup. The speakers are good as the Echo (2nd gen) in my living room. It does everything a normal Echo product does (tells me jokes, answers questions, controls my connected smart devices, etc.)." —Daktari

    Promising review: "Since their release, I've been wearing the 1st generation Echo frames. I need glasses and never liked wearing an earpiece, so I tried and loved them. They look like regular glasses. Yet, offer the convenience of listening to messages, music, taking calls, and more. I was happy to receive the 2nd generation promotion. My gripe with the 1st generation pair is the battery life. That doesn't seem to be as big a problem with this new pair (although I haven't spent much time with them). The 2nd generation glasses are also much better with my dialect. I don't have to be as careful with my pronunciation when using Alexa. All in all, I am happy with both pairs. If you wear glasses or want an accessory to make life easier, you will appreciate these." —BeardedCoder

    Promising review: "OMG!!!! This is crazy comfortable. I am a pillow consumer for sure. This is absolutely amazing squishiness and support. You know how sometimes you have to press really hard to get the pillow to conform? You press harder than your head is heavy, and you know that your head will never move the pillow enough to leave an indention for your head. Well, not this one, it's a slow sink until you are enveloped. If you are going for cozy....this is it." —Loyal customer

    Promising review: "Love it! Quick on it’s feet, bright wonderful display, just an amazing product! For less than $300? This is a full size tablet. Nearly twice the size of a mini.

    Promising review: "So far the watch is everything I’d hoped it would be! I’ve never owned a smart watch before. Because I viewed them as geeky, or just not a classic automatic watch. I was walking on the roof last week at work, I got a call, pulled the phone out, and proceeded to drop it and it slid onto a paver. Oddly enough the phone is ok. So this watch enables me to leave my phone in my pocket. Well worth the money!" —Michelle Tennent

    Ashley Furniture

    Promising review: "Great looking and comfortable couch. In the past we've bought much more expensive couches, but needed these in a pinch for a new house when the timelines for ordering something more custom wasn't going to work. Couldn't be happier with these couches (we bought 2 of the same). The quality and look rivals that of couches we've spent 4-5x on. Great buy." —Kevin O.
