    Promising review: "I bought this on a whim after searching for memory foam mattresses online. So far, so good! It is very cozy! You definitely sink right in. It expanded to a full 12” within 24 hours, and arrived quickly. We have only been using it for a couple months, so I am hoping it holds up well. So far, money well spent!" –Tonya Schnug

    Price: $309.99 (originally $479)

    6. A five-piece Nordic Ware bake set, because you deserve to bake with the very best. If you've never used Nordic Ware before, you're in for a treat. The pans are known for their high-quality, nonstick aluminum that makes not burning cakes and cookies easier than ever.

    I have these pans and I assure you: You'll never want to use another cookie sheet, cake pan, bread pan, or cupcake tray again.

It really warms up my space and was just what I hoped for after reading what others had to say about it. I wasn't disappointed! FAST shipping and packaged incredibly well.

    Promising review: "I was looking for a couch that went with the older pieces in the room. I think it worked out great. I’m sure this could be used in a more modern room as well, but really matched my 75-year-old chair. Love it!" –Marie

    Price: $299.99 (originally $519; available in seven colors)

    12. A vibrant area rug to cover 75% of your hardwood floors because, if you rent an apartment or condo (hi!), your landlord might require it. Even if you don't, covering large sections of the floor with this stunning rug not only makes for an eye-catching style statement but will protect your enviable wood floors from scratches, too. Win-win.

    The vibrant area rug

    Promising review: "GORGEOUS!! This rug is so soft and the colors are amazing! I would buy this over and over!" –Robyn

    Price: $72.99+ (available in 20 sizes)

    13. A Marshall mini fridge for folks who regularly wake up in the middle of the night wishing for an icy-cold bev. Save yourself the trouble of stumbling through the dark to the kitchen and simply reach into the bedroom-friendly fridge. It's designed to look like a speaker and has a freezer built-in.

    The speaker fridge combo

In addition to being nothing short of a dream to look at, thanks to its platform design it doesn't require a box spring, and because of its rounded edges, you no longer have to fear jabbing your leg on the corners. A godsend, really.

    The tufted bed

    Promising review: "Love it! So easy to put together. We did it without fighting! Ha ha it’s lower than I was expecting but that’s because it doesn’t require a box spring. No storage room under but it’s beautiful. The instructions we very clear and easy to follow. The light grey was lighter than I anticipated, it borders a cool toned beige. Very sturdy and we can’t wait until our mattress comes!" –Carla

    The shell chair

    Promising review: "I’ve been wanting chairs for my living room for a long time. After a really bad online chair purchase, I promised my husband I would not buy chairs online again...then I saw these! I bought two in the cream color and they are not only good looking but so comfortable! My husband loves them too and is using them all the time! Quality is great! Gold legs are an awesome touch." –Amber

    Price: $314.99 (originally $769.99; available in two colors)

    23. A 5-inch Simplehuman magnifying mirror to help you see even the finest chin hairs. The magnifying mirror goes beyond that practicality though and makes applying makeup easier than ever. And, given how quickly you'll fall in love with it, you'll be stoked to know that it's small enough to fold into a travel case, so you can take it on the go, too.

    Promising review: "I use it every day. The charge lasts for a very long time. Excellent quality." –Karen

    Price: $130

    24. A Jonathan Adler lacquer box so you finally have a stealth place to hide your most prized possessions (or things you'd rather not everyone in your home see). It's great for holding passports, Social Security cards, vibes, or anything small, really.

    The box on the bottom shelf

    Promising review: "I’m in love with these Jonathan Adler Sorrento Lacquer boxes. The entire collection is great." –Carl

    Price: $159.99

    25. A Dyson V11 bagless stick vacuum that will make you feel like a cleaning wiz. The innovative vacuum automatically adjusts to the floor it's working on — whether carpet, linoleum, hardwood, or anything in between — ensuring that every speck of dirt and strand of pet hair is picked up in one pass. I have this bad boy hanging in my laundry room and have been head over heels since the first time I used it.

    The vacuum

    Promising review: "This is the BEST vacuum! I've had a Dyson before (which I loved), but a much earlier model with a cord and it was big and heavy. This has the power of a much bigger machine. It's cordless and holds a charge for longer than I have ever used it. It was easy to put together. It works well on both carpet and wood flooring. Emptying the dirt bin is easy. The only downfall is you have to hold the the on/off trigger down the whole time your using it for it to have power. It is suppose to save you power, but it's a bit of a pain. Hanging it on the wall in it's charging base also saves you having to store it in a closet. Overall, awesome vacuum!! I would highly recommend." –Lisa

    Price: $549.99 (originally $699.99)

    26. A Jonathan Adler decorative bowl so you finally have somewhere to toss your keys. So, in addition to looking downright stylish, it will be a source of extra organization, too.

    The Jonathan Adler Bowl

    Promising review: "So sophisticated!! Absolutely beautifully made. I get so many compliments on this piece. I bought two of them and put them on my entryway table... the gold inside the bowl adds a glamorous touch. Love!!!" –Patricia

    Price: $60.12

    27. A Smeg electric tea kettle that not only will make your kitchen look chic AF, but will take your tea habit to the next level too. Forget about mic-ing water. With this retro kettle, you can have hot water at the ready for all your tea needs.

    The tea kettle in light blue

    Promising review: "OMG, let me tell you how beautiful this electric kettle is! I find that it’s very easy to use and the water stays hot for a long time." –Kimberly

    Price: $159.95 (available in four colors)

    28. A Hollywood-inspired makeup mirror so even if your room or bathroom has terrible lighting, you'll still be in the clear to perfect your makeup in the perfect light. The mirror comes with a stand so that it can sit atop any counter, and it has three levels of brightness so you can adjust it to the time of day you're getting dolled up for.

    The makeup mirror

    Promising review: "Just what I needed. No more hot bathroom from mega wattage lights. It's a touch mirror with an on/off switch, and three different types of touch lighting. It's the best purchase." –Laurie Lee

    Price: $149.99+ (available in three sizes)

    29. A Nespresso VertuoPlus espresso machine that will give you the opportunity to go no further than your kitchen for a high-quality, cafe-inspired cuppa caffeine. Best of all, it comes bundled with the Aeroccino3 milk frothing device, so you can even top it off with foam.

    Promising review: "I LOVE THIS MACHINE! So simple and so quick! Recommend for someone who is new with espresso!!" –Hannah

    Price: $223.99 (originally $275.99)

    30. A picturesque full-length floor mirror to ensure you can always give yourself a once-over before walking out of the house. While some might think a large floor mirror is unnecessary, we'll be the first to admit that it comes in handy on frazzled days when you might have missed a button or put on mismatched shoes. 2020, right?

    The full-length floor mirror

    Promising review: "I don’t review things as often as I should but I felt this mirror deserved the time of day. I got it this evening, and was pleasantly surprised. It demonstrates much more quality than I thought it would for its price, and it’s what I’ve been looking for in stores for the past year but nicer. Darker but lustrous gold frame is warm and pleasing to the eye, the mirror has a good weight to it, and it was very well-packaged. Pleased with my purchase." –Pooja

    Price: $155.99 (available in eight finishes)

    31. A milk frother that seems like more of a splurge than it currently is — thank goodness for sales! The handheld gadget makes frothing milk easier than ever which means you'll be able to make cafe-quality lattes and hot cocoa from the comfort of your own kitchen.
