    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I've had these headphones for about a year now and loooove them. Great battery life. Was able to fly from North Carolina to Canada and not need to worry about charging at all. The audio is great as well. I use these for everything including drowning out people who talk to me while working out. They are the perfect wireless headphones. Everyone needs them in my opinion... top-notch audio!!! I'd recommend and even buy a second pair just because..." —AjRambert

    Price: $299

    2. A Barefoot Dreams robe whose reviews speak for themselves. People rave about how plush, squishy, and comfortable these robes are.

    Promising review: "This is the best robe ever made. Perfect for fall, winter, and spring. Probably too warm for summer. It is worth every penny." —Tricia

    Price: $99 (available in eight colors and three sizes)

    3. A Malin + Goetz candle for those of us still braving a long winter indoors. If you've already burned all of your candles to the end of their wicks, it's time for a new scent that you'll definitely consider an upgrade.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Same as with the Cannabis one, this is the perfect candle! The smell of this one is way sweeter but not too overpowering, just right. The size is just right and it lasts a long time, and the glass is so gorgeous I always keep them and reuse them. Obsessed!" —anadelmada

    Price: $55 (available in five scents)

    4. A pair of shearling Uggs so you can keep your toes snuggly and warm even as the temperature drops below 10 degrees. These boots are seriously a heat source of their own but won't make your feet all stinky and sweaty.

    Promising review: "I bought a chestnut for my daughter two winters ago! She outgrew it but I was able to hand it down to her baby cousin and I'm about to order them in grey in a bigger size! So cute and stylish she can dress them up or down." —Growing Claire

    Price: $110 (available in five colors and sizes 8–12 toddler, 3–13M little kid)

    5. A Girlfriend Collective sports bra that's as cute as it is sustainable. If you've been looking to improve your carbon footprint, look no further than Girlfriend Collective's raved about line of eco-friendly exercise wear.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This is hands-down the BEST sports bra I own. I didn't have high expectations, but the snug (supportive) fit and the wideband helped my boons not only stay in place, but they also looked great! I wear a 36DDD and most 'high impact' sports bras look like a girdle, are a pain to put on, and end up not holding thr girls down. But not this bra! I wear it to spin class — no joke. Buy yours now before I buy the XL in every color." —beccamaca

    Price: $38 (available in 12 colors and sizes XS-3XL)

    6. An initial pendant necklace for those of us who love a monogram. It's a simple piece that's elegant enough to be dressed up but cute enough that you'll want to add it to your everyday rotation.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I read most of the reviews before purchasing (something I'm used to doing) and I'm glad this beautiful piece is what it's been said to be! I usually don't favor gold jewelry but I made an exception for this little number because it looks so good on olive skin (or a nice tan), plus I love the fact you can adjust it to your preferred length considering I have a longer torso, and other necklaces have failed me in that department. Just stunning! Purchased for close friends and family as well, Highly recommend it!" —Savvy290

    Price: $58 (availabe in 16 variations)

    7. A spoonula because sometimes a two-in-one item is a deal in itself. People can't get enough of GIR's line of kitchenware and we're betting it's for good reason.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Perfect combination of stiffness to support holding sauces and batters while pliable enough to scrape into corners. Just flat out works." —crmatson

    Price: $12.95 (avaiable in four colors)

    8. A Staub 5.5 quart cocotte so you can make your bread and eat it, too. It's sure to become your favorite kitchen upgrade of the year.

    Promising review: "Beautifully made and well-designed. Perfect for breads and stews. Perfect Christmas gift." —Kristie H

    Price: $359.99 (available in two colors)

    9. A plush throw blanket that will make movie night nonnegotiable. Be forewarned: this blanket may lead you to want to buy another...and another.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Six of them are in my home because we all fight over them. The other five I bought as gifts. I think I might have a slight addiction to them, ha! I bought seven last year during the anniversary sale and four more this year. I have washed them over and over and they are still super soft. I will say that you might not want to use a dryer sheet with them. I had one stick to one of my blankets. I can't say enough good things about these blankets! They are the BEST!" —Rose0614

    Price: $39.50

    10. A set of 10 compostable sponge cloths for those who want to reduce their cleaning waste. It'll make spiffing up around the house feel like a cute little project rather than an arduous one.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I ordered these on a whim and really find them useful. Great absorbency and very handy size. I have one in the kitchen, bathroom, and the car. I definitely recommend them." —Ebby

    Price: $29

    11. A Casper dog bed because don't you want your pet to have as luxurious a night of sleep as you? Plus, it'll help them sleep more soundly through the night so you can too.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Both my 80 lb boxers love and fit in one bed! They loved them so much I had to order another one! The whole household sleeps on Caspers. Great buy." —joaceb

    Price: $112.50+ (available in three colors and sizes S-L)

    12. A Jo Malone aroma diffuser so you can keep your home smelling super fresh and give it the inviting touch that you've been craving. If you've tried cheap alternatives, you know there's no one that does fragrance like Jo Malone!

    The Jo Malone aroma diffuser
    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I tried to spend less by ordering another highly rated, but less costly infuser. After realizing the smell in my home was simply cloying not clean smelling with the other infuser, I returned it to Nordstrom. I knew from experience with JoMalone fragrance and candles, that her scents were fresh, clean and never cloying. I bit the bullet and ordered. My home now smells simply wonderful. Not overpowering or sickly sweet but simply fresh. I guess I should have started with the best from the start." —SFJulia

    Price: $98

    13. A Slip silk face mask because maskne is real but combatting it doesn't have to be difficult. If you have to wear a mask for several hours a day, consider upgrading to this silk beauty that prevents your skin from losing moisture.

    Nordstrom

    Type Of Fit: Elastic Ear Loops

    Pocket For Filter: Yes

    Fabric Type: Silk

    Shipping Time: Standard Shipping

    Promising review: "If you’re getting acne from your mask then you need this mask. It’s easy to wash and feels soo smooth on my skin." —mariahbrianne

    Price: $39 (available in five colors)

    14. A pair of high-waisted leggings that are sure to get you in the mood to do that online yoga class you've been eyeing. They're super stretchy and are ideal for all activities, indoor and outdoor, even if that just means wearing them while you work from the couch.

    The high waisted leggings in black
    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I’ve had these for almost a year now and I cannot day enough good things! I live in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, and I mostly do outdoor activities in these. I rock climb, hike 14’ers, scramble over ridges, run trails, and more in these and they never fail. They’re never too hot, they truly do whisk sweat away. And NEVER ride down, 12-mile hikes and I don’t have to pull them up once. They’re better than my Lululemon Wunder Under leggings, and they constantly go on sale so you can get them for a great deal. Personally, I sized down to an XS, I’m 5’3” and 120 lbs and usually wear a small." —Lolosilver12

    Price: $59 (available in five colors and sizes XXS-XXL)

    15. A Chanel mascara for those who pride themselves on their good sense for quality beauty products. You really can't go wrong with Coco and reviewers agree.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I had lash extensions for almost a year up until stupid Corona. I got a gift card for my (quarantined) birthday. I decided to splurge because this product had great reviews. Does NOT disappoint! Blackest black and lifts and lengthens my stubby little lashes. I’ve had problems with mascara making my eyes water (I wear contacts), or making my eyelashes fall out. So far so good and no irritation!! I will be buying this from now on. I’ll save $200 a month on extensions thanks. Hopefully, the buy two get one sale is coming because I’ll buy four and get two of this wonderful Chanel mascara! Chanel products never disappoint and are worth the price. Treat yo self." —JenLakin

    Price: $32 (available in four shades)

    16. A pajama set so you can have your most restful night of sleep to date. It's so soft you won't want to take them off in the morning.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "As a teacher, I spend most of my day counting down the hours, minutes, and seconds until the day ends so I can arrive home. When I walk through the door, I begin a race as I run through the house shedding clothing attempting to beat my record and get into my PJs. These PJs, as silly as it may sound have become a sanctuary for me once returning home. I am able to experience complete comfort and relaxation while wearing these PJs. This is my second pair, but definitely will not be my last! If I could get away with wearing these lovelies to school, I definitely would!" —Drew061816

    Price: $39+ (available in 12 colors and sizes XXS-XL)`

    17. A Kiehl's eye treatment for those who like to wake up looking like they get 10 hours of sleep every night. This incredible formula is one of the brand's best and it shows in the (over 1,000) reviews.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This is my go-to eye cream for layering. I tend to use serums or more concentrated eye creams as a base, then add this product to seal in the moisture. Wow – it is RICH. I use it mainly at night, when I desire extra hydration. But I also carry a tub with me in my handbag to keep my eye area moisturized throughout the day. I'll always have it in my beauty regimen." —WendyNYC

    Price: $32+ (available in two sizes)

    18. An Aesop hand wash that will make any bathroom feel like a tiny oasis. Plus, it has refills available for purchase so you'll never have to go without your home oasis once you delve into it.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This hand soap is my fave for such a long time. The smell is amazing and a little bit goes a long way. The hand feels soft after and during this time you can use it several times a day without drying your hand. Plus the packaging is stunning with the apothecary vibe." —Nafrayou

    Price: $39 (available with a pump or as a refill)

    19. A Sweaty Betty Essentials sweatshirt that will upgrade any outfit with a fun pop of color. Let's face it, we've been living in our sweats lately, so why not give your current pair a break and add these to the rotation?

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I have been on the hunt for the best loungewear forever. This year I have added quite a few pieces to my collection and this may be my favorite. It’s perfectly oversized without overwhelming me, it’s comfortable, but still stylish and the fabric has a nice, sturdy feel. I just ordered it in grey. These will be two staples in my new mom wardrobe." —Hildoh

    Price: $22+ (available in sizes XXS-XXL and five colors)

    20. A Nécessaire body wash because this emerging brand has garnered a cult following over the past year and there's something to be said for that.

    The Nécessaire body wash in fragrance-free
    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "IMO this is the best body wash! I bought the eucalyptus version and it has a beautiful scent that is not strong and overpowering. It sudds up nicely. I used it with a loofah mesh sponge and my skin was so soft and silky afterward. I love this brand! I've bought the body lotion which is better than La Mer's body lotion for me as it moisturizes, softens and hydrates my dry skin more than La Mer does. I will continue to buy this brand as the price is great especially for such effective products on my skin. Love!" —TooMuchMakeUp

    Price: $25 (available in three scents)

    21. A pair of Veja sneakers so you can look as stylish as you feel. No matter if you're wearing a pair of fresh white sneakers or ones with a fun pop of color, you can't go wrong with a classic tennis shoe.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I’ve been wanting a pair of these for a while and when I tried them on they did not come off. They are comfortable and look great with all outfits. I purchased a size 5 and it fits perfect in every way." —LLLMiami

    Price: $150 (available in four colors and sizes 35-42)

    22. An Oribe shampoo for those of us with difficult-to-untangle hair. It'll definitely become one of the must-have items you'll add to your repeat order list once you spend a little time with Oribe.

    The Oribe shampoo
    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Goodness, this stuff is incredible. I do NOT have the kind of money needed to buy shampoo this expensive, but somehow I find a way once in a while...it is just that good! This leaves my aging, bleached hair soft and shiny, and I am actually starting to feel like I have Kate Middleton hair...thick and longer (this shampoo has made it so healthy that it is growing really well) and GLORIOUS. Holy cow, I can't say enough good things....this really is a game-changer! Oribe: I'm obsessed." —AnnieNYC

    Price: $17+ (available in three sizes)

    23. A reverse weave Champion crewneck because you can never go wrong with the classics. We love a good sweatshirt. And a soft one with super solid construction? Forget about it!

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I love champion hoodies! They’re very comfortable and really thick so they're warm, just right for winter. I’m 5'3" and 110 lbs and I get medium which is perfectly oversized." —Jazzy554

    Price: $50 (available in six colors and sizes S–XXL)

    24. A bottle of Chanel Number 5 that will truly never go out of fashion. We all love a signature scent and this one is THE signature scent.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "It came to me in perfect condition. The scent of the perfume is spectacular, when I use it I feel that it makes a scent ring that separates me from everything else." —Daike

    Price: $108+ (available in three sizes)

    25. A Nordstrom puffer so you can protect yourself from windchill all winter long. It packs a ridiculous amount of heat for its slim shape and works beautifully as a layering piece or on its own.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I love the pink!! So bright and pretty. I am 5’6” 130 lbs long waisted but normally buy medium because I have broad shoulders. Originally ordered in med. It was much too large. Exchanged it for a small and it fits perfectly even with a sweater under it. Might buy another color! Have not worn it outside yet." —Pinklove2

    Price: $27.45 (originally $49.90; available in sizes XXS-L)

    26. A Fresh sugar tinted lip treatment great for anyone with eternally chapped winter lips. It provides a pop of color while soothing lips that are less than moisturized.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This is a game-changer. My first color is velvet. I am ordering more as this is not on a lip balm but had a gorgeous berry tint. My lips feel so soft. This is worth the money." —Mekkashoegal

    Price: $24 (available in 12 colors)

    27. A Briogeo scalp revival shampoo because dandruff still plagues many of us, but it doesn't have to! This Black-owned brand has perfected the formula for a clean and healthy scalp to help grow the best hair of your life.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I have been looking so long for a product that was able to help my scalp. Unfortunately, I have a psoriasis patch right where I part my hair and in the winter it is so embarrassing my hair is up in a bun most of the time. After using this product for three washes my scalp felt amazing and to my surprise NO FLAKES! Not only does it give you amazing results it also smells amazing. Sometimes with products that aim to help your scalp just overpower you with tea tree oil, but this product has an amazing balance." —Jamie Lyn

    Price: $11+ (available in two sizes)
