    3. A fun, abstract handmade ceramic vase that'll add some whimsy to your living space without being too over-the-top. Keep it in a place where you'll see it often so it can remind you not to take life too seriously.

    4. Our Place's SWOONWORTHY Always Pan, which will quickly become your go-to cooking vessel (and is a certified BuzzFeed FAVE). Not only will its lovely minimalist aesthetic make you eager to get in the kitchen, it'll also save precious storage space: Essentially, it's an all-in-one kitchen tool, since it's designed to braise, sear, steam, strain, saute, fry, boil, serve, and store. Plus, it comes with a wooden spatula and metal steaming basket!

    5. And, for when you want to go from stove to oven, a 6-quart Lodge Dutch oven so gorgeous (those color options!), you'll want to proudly display it on its own dedicated burner. I recently gave this to my dad as a birthday gift and it's got a permanent spot on his kitchen counter.

    6. A gorgeous flamingo sweater made of 100% baby alpaca wool (so soft!) that'll remind you of sunset walks on the beach even in the dead of winter.

    7. A super cool portable fireplace so you can make yourself comfy by the fire, even if you don't have a full-size hearth. Get out the graham crackers and marshmallows and throw yourself an indoor s'mores party!

    8. A handmade LED croissant night-light, because it's literally impossible to feel sad while staring at gently illuminated carbs (seriously how cool is this?!).

    9. A sleek serving tray that looks way more expensive than it is, but will make you feel oh so pampered when you use it to bring yourself breakfast in bed.

    10. An organic soy wax cube bubble candle you almost won't want to light because it's so pretty (but you should, because it'll make your place smell like flowers, coconuts, and peaches).

    14. A gorgeous tortilla press so you can enjoy homemade tacos and chips made from fresh corn tortillas in the comfort of your own kitchen. Every time you see it, you'll be reminded of how rewarding home cooking can be.

    15. A beautiful oak and brass jewelry holder that'll actually make you excited to put your jewelry away neatly, as opposed to it existing as one big tangled mass on your dresser. Those little hooks at the bottom! 😍

    29. An eye-popping fanny pack you'll want to pair with every outfit for a look that exudes positive vibes.
