    1. A pair of Apple Airpods because you've been making a list, checking it twice, and tl;dr — they've wanted some AirPods for what feels like 90 years.

    The white airpods with a charging case
    Amazon

    Promising review: "These earbuds have been fantastic so far. People criticize the price, but I’m sorry, there is a reason for it. I never tried the previous version, but these ones connect to my iPhone, iPad, and bluetooth transceiver almost instantly. They are very comfortable and stay in my ears with no issues. I’ve tried cheaper bluetooth earbuds, in the 50$ range, and the difference was night and day. I would pay the extra 100$ on these every day for the increase of build quality and performance." —Chris Wadden

    Get them for $109.99 (originally $159), and check out all of Amazon’s deals.

    2. A Calvin Klein bralette that has lounge, lounge, and more lounge in mind. This is cozy enough for their 10+ hour Netflix marathon, but still provides enough support so they can go on their daily walk in peace.

    Amazon

    Promising review: "I love these bralettes. They’re breathable cotton, which is super important to my hyperreactive skin, especially on hot days. They’re comfortable, racerback means no straps falling down. They’re stretchy in all the right ways, ways that avoid bulging over or under edges. The bralette also provides coverage! Does it lift and separate like an underwire bra? No. But I’m wearing them at home, and for walks, and for gardening and yardwork (most of my life), not out to dinner or with business dress clothing. I had to buy another, and will probably be buying a third. Yes, they’re that great!" —LAS

    Get it for $19.60 (originally $28; available in women's sizes XS–3X and 32 colors/styles).

    3. A Cuisinart stand mixer to give ~let's get this bread~ a whole new meaning because with this — well — they can literally make bread... and cookies, mashed potatoes, etc.

    Wayfair

    Promising review: "I am IN LOVE with this stand mixer! The quality is superb! Heavy, durable, steel, quiet, 12 speed. Perfect appliance to have in the kitchen! You will not regret getting! The price you pay for the quality you receive is a bargain!" —Esme

    4. A daily makeup staples set with a Boy Brow grooming gel, a blendable Cloud Paint cream blush, and Lash Slick mascara that is basically lash extensions in a bottle. Their new holy grail products await.

    Glossier

    Promising review: "I spent ages deciding if I would purchase this set, and was particularly apprehensive about the cloud paint but I am so glad that I went for it! This is my second purchase of Boy Brow in clear. It's the perfect 'my-eyebrows-but-better' look. I've tried other brow products like this and none have been as good.The Lash Slick is so much better than I thought it would be (and I already thought it would be good) it gives you a perfectly natural-looking finish, again, your eyelashes but better. Perfect for minimalists. I spent ages looking into best Cloud Paint shade for my skin tone (I am fair with pink undertones) I went with 'Puff' in the end. I was very pleasantly surprised when I put it on, it looks so natural and not at all as pink as I thought it would be. Love it. You do only need a tiny bit." —Rachel

    Get it from Glossier for $30 (originally $50).

    5. A set of three pairs of gold-plated freshwater pearl huggie earrings you'll be tempted to keep for yourself — and no one would blame you for that very understandable betrayal! These are way too pretty to wrap up and give away. Add two to your cart. We deserve this.

    The HDMI stick and remote
    Amazon

    Promising review: "After months and months of debate. I finally decided to drop cable and go 100% streaming. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner.This device provides you with many apps and ways to watch a lot of TV, movies, news, sports, and local programming. I haven't fully dug into all the apps. But so far I'm highly satisfied. The set up was easy and I can always find something to watch. I can't believe I was paying Comcast up to $200 monthly for the same shows." —Greg

    Get it from Amazon for $27.99 (originally 39.99).

    Mejuri

    FYI, I have been wearing these earrings for the past year. Showering with them. Sleeping with them. Eating with them. The works! They have not tarnished one bit and look like I just got 'em yesterday.

    Get it from Mejuri for $50 (up to 20% off; available in two finishes).

    10. A cool-to-the-touch comforter that deserves a standing ovation from hot sleepers. Temp-regulating technology and a 100% eucalyptus shell means they *won't* wake up drenched in sweat, plus they can wave those 3 a.m. "If I have one leg outside of the comforter...." thoughts goodbye. No more overheating.

    instagram.com / Via @buffy, Buffy

    This comforter is also super eco-friendly. It's sewn with 100% recycled thread and is shipped with vacuum-sealed virgin plastic packaging (which requires less fuel than a traditional shipping box).

    Promising review: "It's a bit thinner than I expected, but don't be fooled. Let it bunch up between your legs and you'll be a Buffy believer. It's so soft you feel pampered, yet it doesn't start getting hot like other fluffy comforters I've tried. Not sure it's possible to have this much comfort while staying this cool through the night." —Edward N.

    Get it from Buffy for $143.20+ (originally $179, available in three sizes).

    11. A pair of Madewell curvy jeans for hourglass figures sick and tired of having to wear a belt. Each pair is thoughtfully crafted with a longer rise, slightly more narrow waist, and a hint of extra room at the hip and thighs to highlight their assets — no more gaping waistbands or having to go up a size to get the perfect fit.

    Madewell, AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "These are the best jeans I’ve ever owned in my 30 years on earth. I have very curvy legs, which is usually a problem because I have a pretty small waist. Well, these jeans feel like they were made for my body. My curves are accentuated in the best way and I've already bought two pairs. I’m obsessed." —Nrmlgurl

    Get them from Madewell for $39.99+ (originally $128+, available in sizes 23-37, petite, regular, and tall lengths, and nine colors/styles).

    Amazon

    "This is a game my friends have been playing at the beach since we were in high school — it's always been a big hit. The rules are quite simple: break into two pairs but position yourselves across from one another. Then all you have to do is aim your Frisbee toss at the 'kan.' If your teammate deflects the Frisbee to hit the kan, you get one point. If the disc hits the kan on its own, that is two points. If your teammate taps the Frisbee into the kan that's three points. If by some lucky chance you throw the disc RIGHT INTO THE SLOT, you win!" —Heather Braga

    Get it from Amazon for $32 (originally $39.99; available in six designs).

    13. A pair of plush joggers for the only WFH attire to make their heart happy. They're soft. They're cozy. They're an upgrade from the fleece rubber duck pajamas they typically wear during Zoom meetings.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I never write reviews but thought I should after buying two of these blankets! I haven’t slept through the night for almost six years, thanks to a difficult pregnancy and baby. It trained my body to only sleep a couple hours at a time. I tried everything, and am shocked that a weighted blanket worked so magically!From restless legs, insomnia, anxiety, it is an instant help! I have it draped over me while I write this and it feels amazing! Buy this now!" —Jenny

    Promising review: "Believe the hype. I do not normally write reviews EVER. I struggle with hormonal cystic acne. I received this product initially as a sample in a beauty bag subscription, within a couple weeks it had my acne cleared and pores noticeably smaller. I looked to purchase and was very hesitant about the price so I ended up not purchasing and tried a different option. Nothing could ever get my complexion back to how it was when using this product so I bit the bullet and made the purchase. I DO NOT regret it. It is my new holy grail product." —Chelsea

    Get it from Amazon for $39.20 (originally $49).

    20. A retinol serum that enlists the help of bakuchiol and chlorophyll, making it gentle enough for sensitive skin (retinol = some pretty powerful stuff). This tackles dullness and fine lines with a vengeance but is *super* unique because it doesn't leave behind redness or irritation.

    model holding pink bottle
    Versed

    Promising review: "I've used other retinols and retinoids over the years, but was always turned off by the chemical smell and feeling that they were harsh on my skin. Not this one! It actually smells nice and feels like it soaks into my skin instead of sitting on top of it. Very smooth, not tacky or sticky at all." —Moxmoxmox

    Get it from Versed for $17.59 (originally $21.99).

    21. A sheet set made from a more breathable eucalyptus lyocell material; it also uses 96% less water and comes responsibly packaged in a recyclable cardboard box with zero waste.

    Get it from Sheets & Giggles for $119.96 (originally $149.95, available in seven sizes and 11 colors).

    Get it from S'well for $19.50 (originally $25, available in three sizes and multiple colors).

    23. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer has buildable coverage (medium-to-full!) that never looks cake-y. How?

    instagram.com / Via @narsissist, instagram.com / Via @narsissist

    Get it from Nars for $24 (originally $30, available in 30 shades).

    the white Nespresso machine
    Amazon

    Promising review: "After debating a nespresso purchase for a little while, I LOVE my vertuo next machine, especially the petite size. Doesn’t clutter the counter and very easy to use. My favorite thing is hands down the coffee. The intenso pod is probably one of the best coffees I have ever had. Better than most coffee houses. I appreciate my delicious coffee everyday. The only negative is I can’t figure out how to connect the machine to bluetooth. I didn’t buy it for that so it doesn’t make much of a difference to me. Highly recommend!" —Lauren

    Get it from Amazon for $146.30 (originally $242.95).

    25. An eco-friendly Makeup Eraser so they can put down the disposable wipes and look toward greener pastures, i.e. helping the environment whilst cleansing their skin. This seemingly simple cloth actually swipes off all their makeup when combined with a bit of water — and yes, that includes waterproof mascara.

    Lynzy Billing / BuzzFeed

    Plus, you can throw this in the wash when it starts to get super dirty *and* rest assured that it has a life of up to five years.

    Promising review: "THIS. THING. IS. AMAZING. I have literally never had clearer skin. It does exactly what it says it does, erases your makeup. Waterproof or not, it all goes away with just a little water and a little bit of scrubbing. I will forever be amazed by this. Never buying another makeup remover product again." —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $14 (originally $20).

    26. A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite with a built-in adjustable light that makes reading easy wherever they go — whether it's a sun-drenched patio or their string lights-lit bedroom. Plus, a single battery charge lasts for weeks. It's M-A-G-I-C.

    the black and white Kindle
    Amazon

    Promising review: "I couldn't imagine ever finding something better than my beloved Kindle PaperWhite but I did... this new version. I only bought an updated version because, after four years of excessive use (at least 20-30 hours per week), a couple of pixels have died out on my original and it's just slowing down. So, Merry Christmas to me, a replacement PaperWhite. This one is slightly slimmer and a bit lighter, and the flush front is well worth the upgrade, All of this just makes for even more comfortable reading. I also enjoy the free cellular connectivity. Overall, an improvement on what was pretty darn perfect to begin with!" —Missouri Shopper

    Get it from Amazon for $84.99 (originally $129.99; available in four colors).

    27. A pair of Powerbeats headphones with crystal clear sound quality *and* a delightfully comfy design that will actually stay put in their ear. That's right, folks! Earlobe sweat won't make these splurge-worthy buds fall out.

    Emma McAnaw / BuzzFeed

    Promising review: "These Beats headphones have been a real game-changer for me. The sound quality is SO MUCH better than my cheap headphones, which has actually really improved my experience at the gym. I find it easier to stay motivated now that my music is *crystal clear* (and I can't hear myself wheezing on the treadmill). I was worried it would be hard to connect their Bluetooth settings to my phone and computer (again...I can't handle can openers), but the whole process is super self-explanatory. And they stay connected for pretty long distances — I can walk away from my phone to the other side of the room without interrupting my music." —Emma McAnaw, BuzzFeed Editor

    Get select colors on sale from Amazon for $159.95 (originally $249.95, available in eight colors).

    the silver and black Instant Pot
    Amazon

    This Instant Pot is basically seven kitchen tools in one! It can be used as a pressure cooker, rice cooker, steamer, yogurt maker, cake maker, and warmer! It can also sauté, because #fancy.

    Promising review: "This is quite possibly the coolest, most versatile kitchen gadget I’ve ever owned. I love it so much that I’ve purchased two more for friends and relatives. What can it do? I think the real question is 'What can’t it do?' I truly believe you could replace every cooking appliance (including your oven and stove top) and do EVERYTHING in the Instant Pot. I purchased two sizes for my own use: the three-quart (which is my almost-every-day workhorse for two person dishes) and the eight-quart (which I bring out to handle my dinner party dishes). Everything I’ve tried has been fabulous. In the realm of kitchen appliances, there is no better investment than the Instant Pot." —Stereoman

    Get it from Amazon for $79 (originally $99.95).

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review of the Instant Pot!

    30. An easy-to-clean canvas wallet with ten card slots, four cash (AND *ahem* RECEIPT) holders, an exterior pocket, and secure snap closures. PLUS! It has a super slim design that won't look or feel bulky in their purse.

    33. A simplehuman dish rack that is truly *chef kisses fingers* perfect. It's rust-proof, can hang four (large) wine glasses, includes a drainage system for excess water, and it's FINGERPRINT-PROOF.

    Promising review: "I bought these for my mother, brother's family and mine for Christmas. Figured it was a quick way to communicate between Michigan and Indiana where everyone is spread out over. Usage was so-so the first few months, but now it's at least once a day. Thank you for coming up with such a simple product that does so much to keep my family connected face-to-face in these times!" —mike

    Get it from Amazon for $44.99 (originally $89.99; available in two colors).

    35. An original Casper pillow suited for all sleepers: back, side, or a mix of both. A 100% cotton cover means they won't be sweating throughout the night, a pillow-in-pillow design provides softness and support, plus they'll get a 100-night trial run (with free shipping!) and can return within that time window if you hate it.

    Promising review: "Casper is supportive while remaining soft, feels like a pricey plush down pillow without the feathers. It really is superior to any other brand I’ve tried. I tend to have neck and shoulder pain and with Casper, it really has made all the difference. Worth it." —momof6

    Get it from Target for $58.50 (originally $65).

    37. A three-tiered tabletop fountain for a more zen at-home workspace. A warm glow makes for a cozy environment, plus this mimics the ~tranquility~ that is the sound of flowing water — the stress that is an email ping will now be replaced by the sounds of nature instead. Huzzah.

    amazon.com

    Promising review: "I've tried several fountains so far. This one is awesome, the pump is quiet, as is the water, it simply provides a really nice environmental impact on my workspace. I run it up to eight hours in a day, use distilled water only and clean it periodically, and it's running just like new after several weeks. Not all of the fountains that I've tried work quite so well, I'm impressed and happy with this purchase." —I'm Rod, that's all

    Get it from Amazon for $18.74 (originally $24.99).

    38. A LORAC Pro Palette with18 shades ranging from neutral to daring and matte to shimmery, making it the perfect go-to for ANY look — whether a "no makeup" makeup routine or a smoky eye with extra D-R-A-M-A.

    Promising review: "The claims are true. This is the easiest and fastest I have ever hard boiled eggs. I just got it, and I haven't tested it for making anything but hard boiled eggs, but oh man is it great for that. It was easy, it was fast." —Apoc

    Get it from AllSaints for $42 (originally $60, available in sizes XS-L and in two colors).

    42. A sound machine to totally drown out noisy roommates and honking cars (aka, the inevitable background music that comes with being a city-dweller) for some more zen. This option fits compactly on their nightstand, has great volume control, and offers 10 fan sounds and 10 ambient noises.

    hand-sized white sound machine
    Amazon

    Promising review: "This sound machine has literally changed my life. Our neighbor likes to spend his mornings shoveling gravel on a cement surface with a metal shovel about five from my window (like 6 a.m. early) and to be honest, I was starting to have some pretty dangerous thoughts about stealing his shovel, breaking his arms, burning his house down.... One goes down some pretty dark paths when they suffer from insomnia already and then get woken up with a shovel scrapping down a sidewalk.
