    Promising review: "This bar cart is great for the price. It was pretty easy to put together (no additional tools needed) and seems sturdy. The tinted glass makes it look more expensive and the color is a very intense and shiny gold, which is exactly what I was looking for." —knicole

The port on the table is very convenient. My Kindle has found a new home. The table left is very solid, sturdy and top surface a very nice size. The table was packed beautifully and arrived with no damage. If you're looking for a handy side table and lamp I highly recommend this. Worth every penny." —CDG

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99 (available in three colors).

    Get it from Wayfair for $179.92 (originally $275).

    12. A large linen cocktail ottoman to stack your favorite magazines, use as a footstool, or an extra seat for guests — both versatile and elegant. What more can ask for?


    Promising review: "This is a beautiful high-quality piece. Everyone that comes into my home loves this piece! I also have the rectangular ottoman and I love both pieces. Please keep making furniture that looks expensive, feels expensive, but is a great price that anyone can afford." —Addy Rose

    Read our review of the Instant Pot!

    Promising review: "I have always just had a basic slow cooker and when I received this at first I was overwhelmed not knowing how it worked or what to do with each function but it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. We made our first meal in the instant pot the other day which was ribs and what would normally take 4-6 hours in a slow cooker took only 35 minutes using the meats/stew button on the instant pot and the ribs fell off the bone! I couldn't believe I could have dinner done that quickly. Greatest cooking appliance I have ever had so far." —Brazilchick32

    Get it from Walmart for $89.99.

    14. An avant-garde Bond No. 9 candle with a blend of bergamot, jasmine, and patchouli to make your home smell like the bliss and luxury of downtown New York City.

    16. A rustic mounted pipe bookshelf to organize all of your books and magazines while also not having to sacrifice square footage and space.


    Promising review: "The bookcase looks amazing and was a great complement for my son’s room. The shelves have two tones throughout and I picked the darker one to show on the outside edges. It was easy to assemble, but I had to ask for help to hang up. It doesn’t come with a template so measuring the holes to drill once the unit was assembled was tasking. Other than that, love the product!" —CatLover

    Get it from Amazon for $149.99 (available in three sizes).

    17. An adjustable mid-century style desk chair to comfortably work in style! This ergonomic chair has cushy faux leather seat and supportive back frame with a walnut veneer finish.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "My first piece of furniture I purchased from Urban Outfitters, and I absolutely love this chair. The photo does not do it justice! In person, it looks like a vintage piece from the '70s. I've had my chair for over a month, and it's still like new. Plus, I am an online student, so it is being used daily!" —savannahethanie

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $229 (available in three colors).

    18. A Dyson cordless animal vacuum that'll effectively and effortlessly clean everything from stubborn pet hair from carpets, hard floors, and couches with up to 40-minutes of fade-free suction.

    Home Depot

    Promising review: "Dyson has done it again — they have left me almost speechless. In a world of false advertising and empty claims, you can count on Dyson to be honest. I cannot tell you how it is possible that the V8 Animal is stronger, quieter, lighter and has a longer battery life but it does! The engineering is incredible. At first, I thought perhaps I would be disappointed as it was not loud and I initially took this to mean it was not as powerful. WRONG. It is more powerful but somehow there is less noise. I was able to clean my entire downstairs (well over 1500 sq. ft.) as well as two full sets of stairs before the battery required a new charge." —exceptionalschoolforgirls

    Get it from The Home Depot for $349 (originally $449)

    19. An electric air fryer to cook and fry over 100 recipes without grease or oil and it's faster than an conventional oven. Say goodbye to ordering takeout every day!

    The removable nonstick coated drawer and food basket are dishwasher safe, PFOA-, and BPA-free!

    Promising review: "I love this air fryer! I use it to make hamburgers, chicken wings, sausages, bacon, to cook vegetables, and to reheat already cooked foods. I do a lot of grilling in the summer but I don't like cooking meat indoors because of the smoke and grease that gets everywhere. This air fryer does not smoke and grease does not escape. Everything I have made so far has come out very well cooked and delicious. It's also very fast. I have no complaints so far and I'm very glad I got this air fryer." —JKS

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99+ (available in two sizes).

    20. A velvet-lined navy upholstered bench for an overall posh vibe that can go in front of your bed, in your entryway, or as an accent piece in your living room. Wherever you put it, it'll complement any decor.


    The overall dimensions are 53" L x 22" W x 22.5"H and weighs 242 lbs.

    Promising review: "Amazingly soft and comfy! Best purchase of the year!!! Easy to assemble and looks like it’s worth twice as much money!" —Melinda Lynch

    Get it from Amazon for $134.99.

    21. A countertop AeroGarden and seed kit to grow your own fresh herbs straight from your kitchen — no need for a garden. The LED light grows the plants and the high-tech system will remind you when to add water and plant food.

    With 300 thread count and includes a duvet and two shames.

    Promising review: "So glad to have this duvet cover. I was pleasantly surprised by how soft the fabric is. It does have a slight cooling effect when you feel the material. Can't wait to see how it holds in the heat in the cold winter weather." —ShoppingforShoes

    Get it from BuzzFeed's Goodful collection, exclusively at Macy's for $90+ (available in four sizes).

    24. An Amazon Echo Spot that'll do basically anything you ask it to, from playing music, weather updates, and playing audiobooks — but it won't walk the dog!


    Promising review: "I am not one for reviews but I just had to write this. This thing is a work of art. My whole house is a smart house from my locks to my thermostats. I love this. It works as expected. I am a total Apple Guy but I choose Alexa over Siri any day. Amazon has knocked it out of the park!" —Apple Guy

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99 (available in two colors).

    25. A rustic wall-mounted wine rack set to house all of your wine bottles and glasses without taking up a ton of space.

    Joss and Main

    The set comes with two pieces and holds up to 21 wine glasses and eight bottles.

    Promising review: "Really nice design, it's a beautiful look. Tons of room to hang glassware, although note that the slots on the ends are not as wide as the rest, and our wine glasses wouldn't fit in those (we hang the port glasses there, which works perfectly). Each shelf came with two pre-drilled holes, and the package came with eight screws and eight drywall anchors. To ensure that at least two screws would be hitting studs, I drilled two additional pilot holes for each shelf, to use all of the provided screws. Was pretty easy, only took a few minutes to get it all on the wall." —Taylor

    Get it from Joss and Main for $85.99.

    26. A lavish shag area rug with a thick three-inch pile that'll add a balance of luxury and comfort to any room.


    This rug is made of high-quality synthetic pile fiber and measures 9' W x 12' L.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this rug, it's gorgeous! Even though we have a thick rug pad under it, it is thick and luxurious (even without it). I vacuumed it for the first time and no fluff or shedding. I was very impressed! It's a great buy and I am totally thrilled" —Jt

    Get it from Amazon for $374.22 (available in 18 sizes and seven colors).

    27. A novelty print chair and ottoman set to accent in your living space or bedroom if bright colored furniture just isn't your thing.

    Get it from Amazon for $139.99 (available in two colors).

    28. A porcelain gold piedmont vase to put on a coffee table or nightstand for defining sculpture detail that'll be the ultimate conversation piece. Use it with flowers or just by itself — either way, you'll be glad you bought it!


    Promising review: "You will love this unique conversation piece. The color and style will complement many different designs. I am so glad I purchased this vase." —Tiffany

    Get it from Wayfair for $195.

    29. A Nest learning thermostat that'll help you save money on your electric bill with automatic energy-saving indicators that'll adjust the temperature in your home based on your preference, weather, and time of day.


    Promising review: "I have to write this review as this product just easily paid for itself. I have three Nests in my house and one is in a remote room over my garage. Typically I only use this room in the winter when entertaining a few times a year as it is expensive to heat. I got an alert two nights ago to my phone that the heat in that room had dropped to 40° despite being set to 50°. Long story short, that heating zone had stopped functioning and this alert let me know in time to save me from frozen and burst pipes during sub-zero temperatures." — Skilla

    Get it from Amazon for $206.49 (available in five colors).
