    2. An easy-grab Pyrex baking pan to whip up delicious meals with little hassle. The heavy-duty pan is dishwasher, microwave, and pre-heated oven-safe, and the brand itself is known to being relatively wear-resistant.

    Target

    Target

    Promising review: "This brush is great. It's easy to use, easy to fill, well made, and you can get extra brush heads when you need them. The holder is wonderful. It definitely beats laying the brush on the counter when you're done. Perfect." –Target reviewer

    The gold vinyl record shelf
    Target

    Promising review: "I love this stand. My husband put it together before I had a chance, so I can't comment on the ease of putting it together but it looks great. I will say that the bottom shelf is a bit difficult to maneuver, meaning I would store records you know you won't be listening to as much on the bottom shelf, as the top shelf is easier to flip through." –Target reviewer

    Price: $72.24 (originally $84.99; available in two colors)

    18. A velvet-tufted quilt for extra cozy movie nights and evenings reading in bed. One side of the quilt is satin while the other is velvet, so you can even switch it up if you get tired of the texture.
