49 Things Anyone Who Plans On Staycationing In Their Own Home This Winter Should Have

There's no need to deal with security lines when you can pop on a face mask and binge movies from the comfort of your own couch.

We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

1. A waterproof bath pillow so you can sit up in comfort and read as many classic novels as you'd like while you soak (just don't fall asleep!).,

Promising review: "We've tried a variety of bath pillows in our household and this has been the most comfortable. We only have a small ledge between the top of the tub and the back of the shower wall, but the extra pillow to go over the ledge makes a huge difference in comfort. It also isn't getting mildewy easily like others we've had. Stays clean. Would recommend over other bath pillows." —Shawkins

Get it from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in three sizes and seven colors).

2. And, a snazzy bamboo bathtub tray that expands to fit your tub. It comes with a built-in wineglass holder (yes please) and compartments for your phone, washcloth, and even a stand to prop up a book or tablet — aka you'll basically be living in your bathroom once you get this.,

Promising review: "I should have bought this YEARS ago! I read in the tub every night, but the book is usually on my right on the side of the tub. It has contributed to a right side rib pain. This beauty keeps me sitting upright and centered. And it is smooth and beautiful!" —Amy Tyler

Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in four colors).

3. An oh so fluffy Barefoot Dreams robe so you can feel like you're at a luxe 5-star resort, minus the occupancy taxes.


Promising review: "This robe is wonderful — cozy and warm! It is comfortable and roomy. I highly recommend for snuggling on the couch with a good book!" —JustMi2

Get it from Nordstrom for $99 (available in unisex sizes 1–3 for heights 5'–6'+ and weights 100–220 lbs., and in five colors).

4. An oversized merino-wool cardigan that'll become your staycation uniform — that is, on the days when you decide to actually change out of your robe.

The Knotty Ones / Etsy

This sweater is handmade by Lithuanian women employed by The Knotty Ones, a woman-founded small business that ensures its employees receive living wages, eight-hour workdays, and paid leave/sick time. Oh, and this item ships free!

Promising review: "This sweater is stunning! The knit is chunky and the color is exquisite! I've already ordered two more sweaters from these VERY talented ladies. Communication is awesome, shipping is fast. Their work is worth every penny considering what the same price buys you in the big box stores." —Patricia Primakov

Get it from The Knotty Ones on Etsy for $270.08 (available in sizes S/M–M/L and three colors).

5. An artificial ficus so you can bring some nature indoors without having to do a lick of gardening. After all, you probably won't be stepping outside to see any actual trees for a bit...

The tree in a white planter inside of a home

Promising review: "I love this tree! It's really great quality. Artificial trees are typically very expensive, so I was afraid this one would look cheap because it is sold at such a great price, but I took a shot based on the great reviews, and I'm so glad I did. It does not come with a decorative pot, just the small black planter as shown in the picture, but I knew this at the time of purchase and had already planned to put it in a pot I already owned. I added some dried moss on the top of the filler items I put in the pot to hold the plant in place and it looks great. I would definitely purchase again, and I just might buy another one for another area of my home." —SK

Get it from Amazon for $44.85+ (available in six sizes).

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

Promising review: "The tray is an attractive contemporary design and easy to handle. Glasses, mugs, and smaller breakfast/lunch/appetizer plates or bowls fit on it. I both got one for myself and for my best friend’s birthday. My lovely friend who has a low-key aesthetic, mid-century house in California really did love the tray. She told me she uses it to bring her breakfast out of her kitchen most mornings to a more relaxing spot." —N. Erdmann

Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in two sizes and four designs).

7. A luxe faux-fur throw blanket you'll love cuddling with so much, it'll make your cat jealous.


Based in Oceanside, New York, Comma is a small home goods business focused on using eco-friendly materials whenever possible (for instance, this blanket is made of 100% polyester from recycled plastic bottles). They also donate 10% of their sales to organizations dedicated to helping the homeless.

Promising review: "This is the softest, most luxurious throw I own! It looks exactly like the photos, and the color is so nice! The 'fur' side on this is super smooth and soft, while the Sherpa side is plush and so cozy. This is very lightweight, but very warm. There's no shedding, and happily it doesn't smell like anything (unlike other throws I've bought, which need to be aired out and washed several times to get rid of a bad odor). I'm very happy and definitely will buy more!" —Nina

Get it from Comma for $69+ (available in two sizes and two colors).

8. And, a fleecy weighted blanket for all of the afternoon naps you'll be taking when it's just too cold to do anything else.,

It's got a soft fleece side and a fluffy Sherpa side and can be thrown in the wash for convenient cleaning. To determine the best size for you, consult the manufacturer's size chart.

Promising review: "Absolutely love this blanket. It's heavy and so comfortable. Can't wait for the winter. I'll be cuddled up in this blanket 24/7." —Lily

Get it from Amazon for $65.99+ (available in four sizes and seven colors).

9. An assortment of sparkling mixers so you can mix up some delicious cocktails to treat yourself with (or just drink as is!).

All five flavors of the sparkling mixers

Avec is a Black- and woman-owned small business that crafts mixers made with 100% real ingredients, like fruit juices and natural botanicals. The sampler includes three of each of their five flavors: Hibiscus & Pomegranate, Ginger, Yuzu & Lime, Grapefruit & Pomelo, and Jalapeño & Blood Orange

Promising review: "Love the assortment of flavors (from sweet to subtle, and all the way to spicy)! It was possible for everyone at our get-together to come away with something they really enjoyed, and all with less than four grams of sugar? Simply amazing. Cans are gorgeous as well! Thanks, Avec, will definitely be back for more!" —Lucy B.

Get a 15-pack from Avec for $45 (also available as a monthly subscription for a 10% discount). 

10. A strand of fairy string lights to give your living — er, vacation — space a soft, cozy glow.,

With the flexible wire, you can shape these lights to fit the shape of your space, and the included remote allows you to choose between eight lighting modes and set a timer. Plus, they come with a USB power adapter.

Promising review: "I ordered these lights for a bedroom and they were beautiful! One pack of lights was way more than I needed for one room. I had excess lights after fully hanging them around the entire room, so the length was fantastic. Perfect for bringing a nice illumination to a room. Sometimes I only have these lights on as opposed to the room's lights and it makes the room very cozy. I just ordered another set for another room!" —DHB

Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available with silver or copper wire).

11. A highly rated air purifier so you can *literally* breathe a little easier while you stay in. Reviewers also say it's effective at eliminating bad odors!,

In addition to a regular filter, this little machine comes with pet-allergy- and toxin-absorbing filters, and can refresh the air five times per hour in rooms spanning up to 219 square feet.

Promising review: "Bought because of California wildfires. I put it in a room that is roughly 200 square feet that reeked of wildfire smoke. Set it on the highest setting and closed the door/windows. Within an hour the smell was GONE. I am thoroughly amazed. (BTW this was with the filter that came in the box.) The highest setting is kinda loud, but it's definitely quieter than a normal room fan. Doesn't bother me as long as it serves the main purpose. Setting two is really quiet; you can sleep through that. Lowest setting is so quiet you can't even tell it's on. Highly recommend. Make sure you measure your room for square footage, as that definitely matters." —Jay777

Get it from Amazon for $89.06+ (also available in black).

12. A pack of K-Beauty facial sheet masks to tackle practically any skin woe you could think of while you lounge on the couch. Dryness? Yup. Dullness? Uh huh. Redness? You bet.


Lapcos is a Korean family–owned small business that makes cruelty-free skin and hair products.

Promising review: "I got the collagen one and my face is noticeably firmer and skin looks smoother for a day or two after use. I've been using one every two to three days. There is a really generous amount of serum in the pouch that you can rub on your face/neck afterwards. Doesn't hurt that it smells great, too. Will definitely be trying more of these." —holly j

Get a five-pack from Amazon for $17 (available in 13 varieties).

13. Or, a pack of collagen face masks that'll give your skin a boost when it's feeling as dull as the fourth installment of Home Alone.


They contain vitamin E and collagen, and each one has its own scent.

Promising review: "These sheet masks are AMAZING. They feel wonderful on your face, have very neutral and fresh scents (each one is a little bit different), and really brighten up and soothe my skin. They are easy to apply, and there is plenty of product on each mask. After putting the mask on my face, I apply the 'serum' to my neck and hands as well. And the price for what you receive (16 different masks) is insanely good. I am going to start ordering extras to give to my girlfriends as gifts." —The Cat Mom

Get a pack of 16 from Amazon for $11.99.

See what BuzzFeed Shopping editor Samantha Wieder had to say about them in her sheet mask review!

14. And, some adorable animal face masks to soothe your skin and act as cute filters for Instagram selfies (because there's no way you're making plans to see people IRL anytime soon).,

They're designed for use with all skin types, are vegan and cruelty free, and each animal design serves a unique purpose, from glowing and hydrating to calming and toning.

Promising review: "I actually really like these. The faces are cute, yes, but the product itself is really where it's at! I could see and feel the difference in my skin immediately after use. It looked and felt more hydrated and lively. I've repurchased a couple of times." —Quiana

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $11.25 (available in two sets of designs).

15. An otherworldly room spray you'll want to spritz on pretty much everything in your home to make it feel all the more inviting, even if you're the only guest. These sprays are packaged in gorgeous glass bottles, are nontoxic, and come in scents ranging from Clementine Lavender to Coconut Seagrass.

Four bottles of the room and linen spray in different scents
Eight Hands Farm & Bee Co. / Etsy

Eight Hands Farm & Bee Co. is a small business based in Lambertville, New Jersey, that specializes in handcrafted home and body goods prepared in small batches.

Promising review: "Love the linen scent! I’ve been trying to rid my home of other sprays/candles/products that have yucky chemicals. As I’m replacing with safe products, it’s been hard to order scents online before smelling. I’ve struck out with other companies a couple times, but I love everything I’ve purchased from here. The scents are so light and refreshing. Perfect! Thank you!!!" —Rachel May

Get it from Eight Hands Farm & Bee Co. on Etsy for $12 (available in 11 scents). 

16. A luxurious silk eye mask to get some serious shut-eye while protecting your hair and skin. Best of all? It's machine washable!


I was never one for eye masks UNTIL I tried this super-soft silk mask from Brooklinen. Eye masks always seemed like more of a hassle rather than something that would actually help me sleep better, but lo and behold, this mask has changed my mind. It's been really helpful on nights when my boyfriend uses his reading lamp while I'm trying to sleep, and the gentle silk fabric actually feels like a treat for my eyelids. I don't feel any pulling and tugging on my hair, which makes me believe the silk really is an upgrade from a standard cotton mask. Also, if you're already planning your holiday shopping, the price point puts it into perfect gift-giving territory!

Promising review: "My husband and I love the eye masks so much. We live in NYC, where the buildings are always bright…the masks have been our saving grace. So comfortable, and combined with silk pillowcases it is not easy to get out of bed. Thank you, Brooklinen!" —Erin H.

Get it from Brooklinen for $24.65 (originally $29, available in five colors and three prints).

17. A pack of aromatherapy shower steamers so you can feel like you're at a spa, even if your bathroom is the size of a closet.

The multi-colored shower steamers in their packaging

This set comes with six essential oil-infused shower bombs, all with different scents to help relax, invigorate, or even clear the sinuses. Scents include lavender, watermelon, grapefruit, menthol and eucalyptus, vanilla, and peppermint. They're also nonslip, vegan, and cruelty-free.

Promising review: "I absolutely love these! They smell a little overwhelming when opened, but get them in the shower and they fill the space beautifully! Mine lasted for at least two showers, some three. I placed them on the bench to get the best scent and longevity. The floor was good, but they melt quicker. I plan on buying again." —bkirk

Get a pack of six from Amazon for $24.99

18. A rolling foot massager you can use to ease your feet while catching up on Succession and drinking hot cocoa.

Reviewer using the rolling foot massager

It's got two different textures to help improve blood circulation and give your feet a deep-tissue massage and is small and lightweight enough to bring anywhere in the house. 

Promising review: "My family always teases me that I return all of the gifts they give me. Well, not this one! I got it for my birthday last week, and love it. I've just been using it casually (so far) and it is so relaxing. I'm looking forward to experimenting with more of the reflexology/pressure points aspects of it. I plan on bringing it on walking-heavy sightseeing trips. I know it will rejuvenate my feet/legs, so I'm ready to go each day." —EagleEye

Get it from Amazon for $17.95

19. Or, a foot-massaging machine with a heat function for the ultimate foot-pampering experience.

Reviewer using the foot massager

The detachable foot sleeves can be thrown into the wash to keep things from getting too smelly, and there are three kneading and squeezing intensity levels to choose from.

Promising review: "This is an incredible machine for foot pain. It ranges in pressure from 'firm, relaxing massage' to deep kneading. I have issues with my feet and a lot of pain as a result, so I use the medium setting with heat for 15 minutes and then the high setting with heat for 15 minutes. Best 30 minutes of my day. The pressure can be intense at times on the high setting, however, it is exactly what my feet need. Very impressed." —veber

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

20. And, while we're on the subject of feet, a highly rated callus remover gel to slather on when you're feeling a little...crusty. By the time flip-flop season rolls around (and you actually leave the house again), you'll be good to go.

Promising review: "I have the driest heels and this is the ONLY product that has ever worked. Before I used this my heels had some pretty deep cracks and now they're almost baby soft again. BUT please follow the directions...left it on my super-dry, thick-calloused heels for only three minutes and the callouses were literally melting off! Wonderful product! So glad I don't have to go soak my feet in those 'used' tubs at the nail salon anymore." —Key2Del

Get it from Amazon for $13.87.

21. A pack of moisturizing gloves and socks that'll help undo winter's drying effect on your hands and feet while you keep warm indoors.

Moisturizing and hydrating socks and gloves

This set comes with sets of both hydrating and moisturizing gloves and socks to give your extremities some much needed relief. Simply slip your hands and feet into the masks for softer, smoother skin. Just note that reviewers say the masks can feel a little cold when you first put them on!

Promising review: "I love this product! When I opened the package, I was really expecting to pull out a pair of wet gloves like the facial mask I use. But all I pulled out were a pair of dry gloves, which I then opened the ends of and stuck my hands in, taped the was perfect!!! I still could pick up and do basic things with my hands while wearing these gloves, like taking care of my newborn :). My hands felt so soft and moist after using this product, I definitely need to buy more!!!" —LadyBuzz

Get a pack of six gloves and six socks from Amazon for $22 (socks are designed to fit up to a women's size 11). 

22. An inexpensive (but super-popular) back and neck massager you can use on yourself whenever you need a bit of tension relief.,

This bestselling "selfie massager" has a unique design that allows it to reach places that would typically result in discomfort and weighs less than a pound. It can also be used on your back and feet and is BPA free and hypoallergenic.

Promising review: "The ergonomic design of this is really quite ingenious. There are so many ways to use this product to relieve tension pretty much anywhere on your body. I enjoy that it’s lightweight and easy to use. I also like that it is able to reach parts of my back that other massagers can’t, and I can control the amount of pressure I want. I bought one of these for myself and then I bought one for my mom. She loves it, and my dad has been caught using it more than she has! They even took it with them on vacation. Overall a great product. Well designed and useful." —fallofshadows

Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in black or blue).

23. A bergamot-scented bath soak you can luxuriate in after a long, stressful day of staying inside to avoid the cold.

Oui The People

Oui the People is a Black- and woman-owned small business dedicated to making beauty products with a focus on empowerment rather than "perfection." Sustainable ingredients and packaging are used when possible, and products are free of phthalates, parabens, formaldehyde, petrolatum, and synthetic fragrances.

Promising review: "This is my treat to myself after a long day or a tough workout from home. Pour a hot bath with my bath soak, grab some wine, light my bathroom with a candle or three, and feel my body and mind unknot. It helps treat my sore muscles, makes my skin feel great, and that bergamot scent is the BEST. It’s a several-times-a-week must." —Kate N

Get it from Oui the People for $28.

24. And, a SipCaddy wine and beer holder that'll make your bath lounging even more delightful. Also super convenient for anyone who enjoys a "shower beer" every now and then.,

It's dishwasher safe!

Promising review: "Such a simple idea, how is this just coming into my life now? I didn't think showers could get any better but now I have a brew/wine within reach at all times. Really helps take the edge off after a long day. The thing is way sturdier than you'd expect, I've tugged on it and it's not going anywhere. The slotted design allows you to use stemmed wineglasses, too. A truly perfect product. This piece of plastic is working as hard as my therapist and I stan." —Steven

Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in four colors).

25. A lightweight body oil to massage all over after your bath for silky-smooth skin.

BuzzFeed Shopping Writer Brittany Ross, Reed + Gwen / Avocado Mattress

As someone who despises the feel of anything greasy on their skin, I can say, with confidence, that this body oil doesn't linger or leave an unpleasant film. I usually slather it on after I come out of the shower, and it quickly absorbs into my dry-as-a-desert skin, leaving it so smooth that I sometimes find myself stroking my arms and marveling at the lack of flakiness. It's got a slightly floral, citrusy scent that I personally love, and the sleek glass bottle filled with amber oil looks really nice displayed on my bathroom counter. Some extra perks? It's vegan and cruelty free, and climate-neutral certified.

Get it from Avocado for $40 (originally $48).

26. Some metallic under-eye masks, because even if you don't plan on seeing anyone for a while, it's nice to feel a little pampered. Pop them on for 10 to 20 minutes, then gently pat the excess serum into your skin.,

P.S. They're cruelty-free, vegan friendly, and BPA free.

Promising review: "Wow! These work so well. I’m the type of person who never really feels like they see results from masks. I’ve had dark inner corners of my eyes with puffiness pretty much my whole life. I put these on last night after having drinks with a friend and actually forgot I did until I looked in the mirror this morning. I couldn’t frickin' believe the results! My eye area is noticeably brighter and less puffy. This in combination with Bare Minerals Powder Concealer has completely changed my face. If any of what I said sounds like you, I’m sincerely encouraging you to just try them!" —Brittany Bradford

Get a pack of six pairs from Amazon for $25 (available in gold and rose gold and in a pack of two).

27. A bamboo floating bedside table so you can keep essentials like your phone, remote, and a book within arm's reach (aka no need to leave your bed).

BedShelfie / Etsy

BedShelfie is a POC-owned small business focusing on space-saving minimalist nightstands based in Los Angeles.

Promising review: "I love this thing! I made myself a loft bed to save space but then I didn't have anywhere to put the things that would normally be on a bedside table. This is an awesome, easy to use, super-sturdy solution. And it even looks nice! I highly recommend it." —Meghan Jimenez

Get it from BedShelfie on Etsy for $44.99.

28. A tub of beloved Aztec Secret Indian Bentonite Healing Clay, because why not use some downtime during your staycation to give those clogged pores a deep cleaning they'll never forget? It's made with 100% natural calcium bentonite clay, which draws out impurities to leave you with fresh, smoother-feeling skin. For best results, mix up a paste using apple cider vinegar, apply to your skin, and let it harden for 5 to 10 minutes, then rinse off with warm water.,

Promising review: "Works amazing! I primarily used this for detoxing my armpits (sounds weird, right? But you should seriously look into it). I also slathered it on my face to pull out the impurities! I am 100% satisfied with this product!" —Happy Customer

Get it from Amazon for $14.95+ (available in two sizes).

29. And, Queen Helene's Mint Julep Masque for anyone with oily, acne-prone skin looking to soak up some of that shine and clean out those pores while relaxing inside. Just apply to your face and neck, let it dry for 15 minutes, then rinse off for softer, smoother-feeling skin.

Reviewer holding bottle of Queen Helene Mint Julep Masque

Plus, it's got a refreshing minty scent and is cruelty-free!

Promising review: "I've been using this product since I was a preteen (I'm now 30), and it's one of the only masks that works on my acne. I have combination skin, and even when I use it on the dry part of my skin, my skin feels soft after I wash it off. I love how it shrinks my pores, too, and makes my skin feel clean. It makes my pimples much smaller and go away much faster than when I don't have any on hand. What's funny is that I don't even like mint, but it has a pretty good smell, and the minty scent isn't overpowering in my opinion." —Wayfaring Stranger

Get it from Amazon for $5.90.

30. A set of "Be Our Guest" hand towels to make you feel like a welcome visitor in your own bathroom. Now if only your furniture could sing while making you dinner...,

Each set contains two 100% cotton towels.

Promising review: "Very soft. I love these big hand towels. Perfect for guests. I had a hard time finding a 'guest' towel." —Sandy S.

Get a set of two from Amazon for $24.99.

31. A 4K Fire TV Stick so you'll have access to every streaming service imaginable at your fingertips. I mean, why pay money to binge your favorite shows and films at a hotel when you can just do it at home?

Reviewer holding the Fire Stick

Promising review: "The Fire Stick is a streaming godsend! Though there are other streaming devices offered elsewhere, I believe the Fire Stick is one of the more user-friendly ones. It accommodates all the streaming apps you can think of, I mainly use Netflix, Hulu, Prime, and HBO, plus its user interface is easy to navigate. The Fire Stick home page will list recommended shows and movies, when you click on one it'll take you straight to the streaming service which offers that show/movie! Setup is extremely easy, especially if you already have a Prime account. Simply plug in, follow the setup directions, log into your accounts, and you're set to stream as much as you want! I love my Fire Stick so much I now have three, one for every TV in the house, plus I have purchased another three to give as gifts!" —Nan021

Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

32. A BuzzFeed Tasty Micro-Pop popcorn maker, because you're on vacation and you deserve an upgrade from the bagged stuff. You can pop whatever kernels you'd like right in the microwave and, best of all, melt butter right on the lid.


Promising review: "This single-serve glass popper is fantastic. So easy to wipe clean, and it can be as good as the movie theater, seriously. I love this handy glass pitcher for heating liquids, too!" —Juliann

Get it from Walmart for $9.77.

33. And, some Amish Country popcorn to enjoy during your staycation movie marathons.


This assortment comes with 10 4-ounce bags, with varieties including baby white, red, extra-large caramel, purple, and mushroom (!).

Promising review: "I'm a bit of a popcorn connoisseur — I love it and eat it often. I always pop myself, from kernels in safflower oil. I've had all the major brands and supermarket house brands. This is by far the best. The kernels before and after popping are smaller than I'm used to, but so much tastier. This popcorn seems to have a bigger proportion of the fluffy white pop and less of the hard yellow shell left behind by other brands. Every single kernel popped with no burning. Oh, I love the packaging. It's got an old-timey look perfect to display on the open shelves of my kitchen. I will definitely keep buying this popcorn!" —Aquarian Here

Get a pack of 10 from Amazon for $19.99.

34. A fluffy towel set that'll make leaving your warm bath a little easier. You'll never go back to those threadbare bath linens you've had since college after wrapping yourself in these babies.,

This set comes with two bath towels, two hand towels, and two washcloths.

Promising review: "Wonderful, top-quality towels. Super thick, soft, and absorbent, but without being overly heavy. They also have zero lint, unlike all the other towels I have bought for a number of years. These towels have the exact same feel as the luxury towels we used in a resort many years ago. They are also exactly like the towels I used in someone's home when I traveled to Turkey 30 years ago. I never forgot the comfort and the feel of those towels. Until now, these Turkish towels could only be found on a very few specialty websites, and they cost a fortune, way out of our reach. Now we have them, at a great price! The seller also sent an email the day we received them, with washing instructions, a warranty, etc. A nice way to do business. Please always keep them available!" —A customer

Get a set of six from Amazon for $39.99 (available in 15 colors).

35. A 1,000-piece Golden Girls jigsaw puzzle to work on as a relaxing pastime — you know, on the off chance that you actually get out of bed.

The puzzle featuring the four main Golden Girls characters

Promising review: "First off I would like to say this is a must-have for any Golden Girls fan!! The pieces were a little bit difficult to fit but it brought a challenge!! Edges look like inside and inside look like edges with some pieces! It took me a week but was very fun!" —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

36. A handheld milk frother so you can whip up all of the foamy creations of your dreams — with no soul-shattering Starbucks line in sight.,

Don't forget the AA batteries!

Promising review: "This has revolutionized my coffee routine and allows me to make lattes like they do at Starbucks at home. I have used it exclusively with plant-based milks (coconut, almond, etc.) and it perfectly froths nondairy milks. I can't tell you how much money I have saved not having to go to the coffee shop every time I want to have a delicious latte. It makes a beautiful, delicate foam that holds up for the whole cup of coffee. I love that there's still foam even in the last sip. Also, you can use this for the fancy cold foam to have with iced coffee drinks. I love this device so much! I have recommended it to literally everyone I know and plan on purchasing another frother in the near future just so I can keep one at the office to make sure I never have to make coffee without it. I couldn't go back to just coffee and cream after having tried the perfect lattes made by this." —Lindsey Catherine

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 14 colors).

37. A pair of comfy joggers, aka the only things even remotely resembling pants you'll want to wear for the foreseeable future.

Britt Ross / BuzzFeed, Third Love

I recently joined the 21st century and got my first pair of joggers (!), and they're this exact pair. I don't really know what I was thinking by holding off for so long — maybe I figured they would just be glorified sweatpants? — but I'm here to say that they have RUINED all other pants for me from here on out. They're comfy enough to wear as pajamas or around the house when I'm feeling lazy, but cute enough for me to wear out without feeling self-conscious about looking like someone who couldn't be bothered to look presentable. In fact, I even wore them on Thanksgiving this year (a drawstring waist = you can chow down and still be comfortable) and no one was the wiser.

I love that they're a little looser on top and tapered at the bottom, making them look way more elevated than my baggy college sweats, and the material is nice and soft while keeping me warm, even when I wear them outside on chilly days. There's not really much else to say about these pants other than, mark my words, I will be getting them in every color. If you're on the fence, hop right on off and get them stat! PS: They come with super-roomy pockets. 🙌

Promising review: "The most comfortable pants EVER. I adore these pants! I was worried they'd be too long on me (most pants usually are) but they fit just right. Love the stretchy waistband and how I can wear them while being cozy at home or run errands while looking semi-human. :)" —Miriam S.

Get it from Third Love for $27 (originally $55; available in women's sizes XS–3X and five colors).

38. A portable fireplace so you can get comfy by the fire, even if you don't have a full-size hearth. Plus, you can get out the graham crackers and marshmallows and throw yourself an indoor s'mores party.,

40. And, a flexible lighter, because no one should have to stress over matches on vacation, even if the most travel you're doing is going from the bedroom to the kitchen.

It also comes with a USB charging cable!

Promising review: "This is so easy to use! This is great because it is made of material that can be bended and curved so you can point the tip directly into the candle jars. I read some people talk about the sound coming from it, and yes it is a strange sound but it is VERY quiet, so it's not that big of a deal at all. The sound will not bother you. I've had it for one month now, only charged it when I first got it for a half hour, and the battery isn't even halfway through yet. I've used it several times a week for the last month. Great product with strong battery life. Buy this!" —Amazon Customer

Reviewer wearing the red buffalo plaid onesie

Promising review: "This onesie is the comfiest, coziest, most pleasant surprise! It absolutely surpassed my expectations of quality and softness. The fabric feels like a cloud on both the inside and outside, and the Sherpa trim is just as soft and fuzzy. The bands at the ankles are big enough that I don't notice them but not so baggy that they slide down, and the sleeve bands are comfortable at the wrist or pushed up on the forearm when I'm working. The buffalo plaid print looks great in person, and it feels like fall and winter without screaming 'holiday.' I have several onesies, and this one is hands down the coziest." —Andrea

Promising review: "One of the best prices for the value for silk pillowcases I've found. Very good material, and I LOVE the zip closure so they don't ever start to come off the pillow.
