    1. A brilliantly engineered Dyson Supersonic Blow-Dryer that took my 4c hair from sopping wet to very straight in minutes. Its state-of-the-art heat sensor makes it one of the rare blow-dryers that won't cause catastrophic heat damage to your hair.

    2. An unbelievably picturesque LG OLED Smart TV with four times more pixels than a high definition TV and looks gorgeous from all angles. It made me feel like I was experiencing television for the first time all over again.

    3. Or a Samsung Frame TV since having a big, black box on your wall 24/7 may not be your speed — even if it is a 4K Smart TV. This'll turn it into your favorite piece of art when you're not using it.

    4. A sleek, easy-assemble Thuma Bed that's timelessly modern and very well constructed. It took no more than 20 minutes to put together with no tools, which is perfect for renters who move often.

    5. A voice-controlled Bose Smart Speaker 500 for getting a concert-grade listening experience and a dope virtual assistant all in one. I love pairing mine with a Smart Soundbar for a seamless, room-to-room home theater.

    6. A pair of comfortable Birkenstocks that I always joke are Jesus shoes because these will cradle your feet on long walks to Nazareth. Everyone I know who owns these loves them.

    7. A plush Casper Wave Hybrid Mattress so you can kiss those aches and pains goodbye, thanks to ergonomic gel pods. We spend a third of our lives asleep, might as well align your spine while supporting your waist and lower back while you're at it.

    8. A SimpleHuman step trash can for keeping pests, pets, and hands off of your trash can. If you live in an old building that isn't completely sealed, you should seriously consider one of these.

    9. Or a SimpleHuman sensor recycler can that you won't have to touch at all. This is easily the best trash can I've ever had because I can open it by waving my hand or via command.

    10. A classic Stanley thermos so your coffee will stay hot for up to 24 hours, yes you read that correctly. It's totally vacuum insulated and made of rust-proof stainless steel.

    11. The all-star Sunday Riley Good Genes All-In-One Lactic Acid Treatment — it remains one of the most effective, gentle chemical exfoliants on the market. Although it can be used as a mask, just a pump of this is enough to improve your skin's texture by morning.

    12. A peg system drawer insert because the hardest part after procrastinating doing the dishes is finding someplace to put them. This tool will keep your kitchen drawers clean and organized.

    13. A cutting board and strainer combo for those who lack counter space. You were going to wash and chop produce anyways, might as well do it all over the sink.

    14. A Cuisinart Griddler to replace your George Foreman grill of yesteryear. It's easy to use and works for veggies, burgers, paninis, and more.

    15. A rainfall shower system so the rain can fall down and wake your dreams every morning. Start bathing in luxury and make your shower a place of refuge after a long day.

    16. A pack of kinky clip-ins that can be dyed or straightened to blend seamlessly with type 4 hair. They don't have that weird residue or new hair smell fresh out of the package.

    17. An industrial-style bookshelf for everyone who hates, heavy clunky shelves. Now you can display books, plants, candles, and pictures without sacrificing floor space.

    18. A self-cleaning litter box since nobody actually likes cleaning them, but everyone hates a smelly litter box sooo much more. If your cat's litterbox isn't clean, they just might find a new place to pee 🥴.

    19. An Instant Pot air fryer to jump start your kitchen rebirth, seriously. Whether you like to roast, broil, bake, reheat, or dehydrate, this machine has you covered. The results? Simply delicious.

    20. A pair of heeled Doc Martens so you can maximize style while minimizing pain. Based on the reviews, you'll be hard-pressed to find a pair of heels this comfortable that last forever.

    21. A Filtrete air purifier to ensure pet hair, dander, and dust don't stand a chance in your living space. Its HEPA filter slurps up particles that spread odor and bacteria to maintain peak air quality.

    22. A nugget ice maker for getting through the period of scorching heat and blinding sunshine that is summer 2021. Plus, this makes so much ice with minimal noise.

    23. Erno Laszlo Firmarine Night Cream, because it contains bio-actives, vitamins, and other great oils to nourish skin. I love this cream because it's not too oily, yet heavy enough for me to wake up with hydrated skin.

    24. A pair of fly gold hoop earrings because the key to pulling together a look is accessorizing. Luckily, it's always the perfect time to wear hoops.

    25. A stylish two-tier bar cart that doesn't have to hold liquor. Consider the power of a rolling vanity, arts and crafts station, plant cart, or even a mobile tea station. Picture me rolling 😌.

    26. A Chi steam iron because it makes so much sense for a company that makes hair flat irons to also make them for clothes. This features over 300 steam holes to release every unwanted wrinkle on the most delicate clothes.

    27. A reusable Ambrosia candle befitting of a Greek god. If you're into sophisticated, woodsy candles with slight citrus notes this is a match made in Olympus. Plus, you'll be supporting a great cause.

    28. A conveniently portable massage gun that'll untie the knots living in your muscles. Stress management is so important, and this gun makes decompressing easier than ever.

    29. An acrylic Squatty Potty for those whose digestive functionality is MIA. It helps everything ~flow~ better without being incredibly ugly.

    30. A lightweight, flax linen duvet for people who only love their bed and their momma. It's light enough for warmer months, and totally nails the relaxed, comfy bedroom look.

    31. A pair of noise-cancelling Apple AirPods Pro that I never leave home without. With these, you can listen to meetings without being tethered to your computer by a cord. Plus, the AirBuds charge pretty quickly and the charging case lasts for a WHILE.

    32. A set of silk pajamas that are roomy, stylish, glam and will keep you cool during hot summer nights.

    33. A Quip electric toothbrush for getting your teeth squeaky clean sans the gum irritation. I've been using it for a while and the corresponding Quip app has 100% made me a much better brusher.
