    31 Splurge-Worthy Things From Target That’ll Be Useful All Year

    From top-notch kitchen appliances and music gadgets to living room furniture and luggage, you're sure to find something that piques your interest.

    1. A 10-speed KitchenAid mixer so you can whip up holiday treats, of course, but birthday cupcakes and everyday pastries and breads all year-round, too. This is just any old KitchenAid, though — it's Joanna Gaines's special Hearth & Hand Magnolia model.

    2. A water-resistant Bose speaker that has truly stunning sound quality. People will think you're carrying around a full-blown stereo — it's that good. Plus, it's portable.

    3. A round Sherpa ottoman, so you have somewhere comfy and chic to sit and prop your feet. The wood-accented ottoman stands 18.5 inches tall, making it the perfect height to pair with low-profile mid-century modern couches.

    4. A Polaroid camera that will change the way you memorialize parties and special moments moving forward. The point-and-shoot device delivers immediate auto-focused shots, making it a great product for anyone who likes instant gratification. Plus, this particular one comes with film, so you can start taking photos right away.

    5. An executive-style desk with woven-front contrast panels to make you feel like a boss when you're working from home. Plus, with three drawers and two cabinets, it keeps things out of sight, too.

    6. A pair of Apple AirPods so you can listen to music or your favorite audiobook, as well as catch up with friends on the phone (or listen in on Zoom) while being hands-free. They're especially great while exercising, running errands, and walking the dog. And if they don't fit quite how you'd like, be sure to swap out the little silicone tips, which come in three sizes.

    7. A KitchenAid slicer attachment for anyone looking to get the most out of their KitchenAid mixer. This slicer is especially great for folks who love eating fruits and veggies, as it makes slicing them easier than ever so that you can always have freshly prepped produce in your fridge.

    8. A round swivel barrel chair that's about as trendy as it gets right now. The velvet fabric is soft to the touch and will instantly elevate any room.

    9. A Magic Bullet air fryer so you can whip up crispy and delicious meals without any oil required. It has a 2.5-quart capacity that is fully surrounded with convection heat, so you can expect even cooking (and crisping) every time.

    10. An Amazon Echo Show 10 because it will help you do so much all year long. I use mine for a rundown on the weather ( — to the point that when I'm traveling, I automatically ask Alexa for the weather without realizing she's not there), to look over recipes, make video calls, check the news, listen to music, and more. You can even use it as a video monitor in your home!

    11. A Dyson V8 animal vacuum so your home will be tidier than ever. The vacuum automatically adjusts to floor surfaces to ensure optimal pick-up, whether on a carpet, hardwood floor, tile, linoleum — you get it. Plus, the cord-free design means you won't have to strategically plug-in or work to stay untangled. Phew!

    12. A genuine marble side table that *also* looks like something you'd find at West Elm or Anthropologie. Whether you pair it with the coffee table or let it stand on its own, it's bound to earn you compliments.

    13. A brass-framed floor mirror so you can check out your outfit from head to toe before walking out the door — or even if you just want to take a cute full-length mirror pic. You do you.

    14. A KitchenAid pasta roller attachment for pasta lovers. The ability to make your own spaghetti, fettuccine, and lasagne noodles? A dream.

    15. A three-bulb brass floor lamp so your room will be stylish *and* super well-lit. Each dome bulb can be adjusted individually, so you'll always be able to get the perfect light. Plus, with its brass finish, it's très chic.

    16. A NutriBullet for folks who love smoothies. From the way it expertly blends fresh and frozen produce to the way it doesn't take up loads of counter space make it a great kitchen gadget you'll want to use time and time again. Plus, it saves you from dirtying extra dishes since the cup you blend in is the cup you drink from, too.

    17. A two-tiered mid-century modern coffee table so you have plenty of room to place your drinks and snacks and/or to prop your feet up. The table has a spacious rectangular design, complete with an under-shelf to display your favorite coffee table books (or that chessboard you got after watching all of The Queen's Gambit in a weekend).

    18. A cooling Casper mattress that will ensure you have the best night's sleep possible. It offers medium-firm support and comes with a 10-year warranty. What's not to love?

    19. A set of three Oxo food storage containers, because a well-organized pantry can be a beautiful thing — just look at The Home Edit's Instagram feed. These airtight cylindrical containers keep contents fresh and look particularly pretty when filled with colorful and uniquely shaped foods (like rainbow rotini — yum!). All this to say, while $40+ for empty containers might seem steep, they'll elevate your organization in ways you'll appreciate all year long.

    20. A stylish sofa so you have a cozy and cute place to curl up by yourself, with your pup, with friends, or whoever. Nearly 6 feet long, it can support up to 500 pounds.

    The green couch

    21. A stylish 60-inch TV stand with cane mesh cabinet doors and cord cutouts that's great for displaying your TV and organizing your favorite electronics, coffee table books, and living room decor.

    22. A Stasher reusable food storage bag because it's high time we work to be kinder to the environment. While ~$27 may seem steep for a single baggie, knowing that you're doing your part to be more sustainable is well worth the splurge, no? Plus, think about all the money you'll save on single-use bags.

    23. An adjustable drop pendant floor lamp, so you can illuminate your home in style. The 70-inch-tall lamp also comes with an adjustable dimmer, so you can set the mood however you please.

    24. A Bartesian small kitchen appliance that makes mixing pro-level cocktails a breeze. Simply fill the canisters with your desired spirits, read the directions, and get mixing.

    25. A cozy armchair to add style, comfort, and an extra place to sit to your space. The mid-century modern chair features a sturdy wooden frame and thick cushions upholstered in smooth fabric (in a variety of colors, I might add).

    26. A hall tree so you and your family and friends always have a place to set your things as soon as you walk in the door. This one comes with four hooks and five shelves, not to mention under storage to slide shoes.

    27. A hammered metal accent table to add a stylish element to your space while also giving you extra space to set down beverages and display decor.

    28. A stackable cookware set that's great for folks with limited cabinet storage but expansive cooking goals. The set comes with nine pieces, including a number of fry pans, lids for them, and even a Dutch oven.

    29. A storage ottoman, so you can have an extra place to sit and an extra place to store things. The ottoman can hold up to 125 pounds worth of goods, so it will help you hide plenty of clutter while looking pretty as can be from the outside.

    30. A cast-iron Lodge Dutch oven to broil, braise, bake, or roast in the oven up to 500° F. Alternatively, you can use it without the lid on a stovetop to sauté, simmer, or fry. Plus, the color makes it a fun addition to any kitchen.

    31. Last but not least, a wheeled luggage bag so you can travel to your heart's desire while still being able to stay organized on the go. This stylish, hard-sided suitcase comes on wheels and features a variety of zip pockets for an extra-tidy travel companion.
