    Price: $37.97+ (available in seven colors)

    Promising review: "I like everything about it! It is just the right size, and it goes well in the room with other pieces that match! It has plenty of room in the cabinets, and I really love the storage bin for all of my sewing supplies! It also rolls around if I need to move it. It was fairly easy to put together says my husband. The extension swings out and the storage door latches in place for more sewing room. When not in use, I store my sewing machine down under and take down the extension table and close the door, and it looks like a nice piece of furniture, which I like because the room is sometimes used for guests!" –Peteypotpie

    Price: $209.99 (also available ingray)

    Instapot sits behind a main course of slow-roasted beef with veggies and sides of sautéed mushrooms and broccoli, and fluffy jasmine rice

    I love my Instant Pot. It makes the BEST, fluffiest rice in only 16 minutes, which is still crazy impressive to me after using it for three years. While I love cooking, some days I don't have the time to be in the kitchen (or would rather just relax on my couch), and this Instapot saves the day — I still get comforting, home-cooked food, but in just a fraction of the time!

It's just amazing. If you're into movies and want to feel like you're in the theater, but dont have a small fortune to spend - this is the one to buy. Bought it to go with the LG OLED 65" TV and I'm in movie heaven!! Very happy with this purchase!" —Shawna

    Price: $296

    14. A six-tool combo kit for anyone who loves staying at home and tackling those DIY projects. The best part? You only need one interchangeable 20V battery to use all six of these cordless power tools!

    15. A Roborock robot vacuum and mop since there's almost nothing worse than having to stare at your gross, dirty floors 24/7. Instead, set up multiple cleaning schedules and let your Roborock keep the floors mess-free so you can actually enjoy being at home.

    The Roborock

    My mom invested in a Roborock a year ago, and she LOVES her cleaning buddy, Hazel (yes, she named her robot vacuum). She's got three different maps programmed, complete with no-go zones, and has it scheduled to vacuum the kitchen every night. The app is pretty handy, too, and will notify her when Hazel starts and finishes its route. I'm not really sure what my mom would do without Hazel...probably have dirty floors, I guess. 

    Promising review: "The quality of this vacuum is awesome. The lidar function makes this vacuum has excellent navigation. Suction power is strong, it can easily remove most of stains on the floor. And the app is very useful. I can use app to control my robot to any corners." –Wenqi

    Price: $39.99

    17. A cute and velvety pom-pom throw pillow for something that's cozy and chic. If you're tired of staring at your grungy old couch pillows all day, these will definitely brighten your mood.

    the colorful pillows on a couch and floor

    Promising review: "Bought these for our granddaughters who have moved together to share a room. I helped to decorate their room, and tassels were part of the new theme. These are large, plump, quality pillows with a nice velveteen cover. (It feels like a nice cotton/poly content fabric.) For everyday use, you may want to scotch guard the pillows before using them." —jumpannejump

    Price: $30.98+ (available in five sizes and 11 colors)

    18. A 24-setting luxury dual showerhead if one of your favorite parts of being at home is unwinding with a relaxing shower – with this, you'll get *double* the relaxation as two showerheads deliver spaworthy sprays.


    Promising review: "Best showerhead I've ever owned. I love having two heads, one detachable, while they both have all the different setting options. I like that there's a knob that you can turn that allows you to have both heads going, or just the handle, or just the showerhead. Everything about this was great. And installation was super simple. If you can read this review without issues and you have a pair of pliers then you can install this showerhead in less than 10 minutes flat." –Walmart Customer

    Price: $18.99 (originally $29.98)

    Promising review: "Best purchase I've made in a long time. I've had my set for a year and it's in perfect condition. I've left it outside on my deck uncovered through rain and snow. It hasn't rusted at all and still looks brand new. The table is super sturdy and was put together in 15–20 minutes. I had the umbrella out for about five months, then put it in the shed during the winter. It's now May and I just took them back out and they still look new." –Melissa

    Price: $149.98 (available in five colors)

    20. A velvety fleece throw blanket since cozy blankets are a must-have for snuggling up and lounging about the house, and you really can never have too many.

    The blue textured throw blanket draped over a couch

    Promising review: "This is a wonderful plus oversized throw which appears to look like a basket weave, yet far from it. it's solid fleece, very nice. I bought for my full size bed as a throw. I layed it out on full-size bed and it covers the whole top with several inches on overhang." —Toni

    The brown wood diffuser on a yoga block next to someone meditating

    Promising review: "I like that you can set it on a one or three hour timer. Also it shuts out off when it runs out of liquid which I think is safe. I use tea tree oil which smells fabulous! Great way to diffuse essential oils that help strengthen your immune system during this pandemic. I'm an essential worker so I keep it running in my cubicle to add an extra level of protection in addition to the social distancing. Also love the changing lights. Makes the diffused "air" look beautiful in dim setting." —Rebo

    The pink curtains partially open in front of a window

    Promising review: "These sheers add a lovely bit of airy lightness to our home without direct sunlight to trigger my migraines and offers more privacy. We paired them with blackout curtains in our bedroom and living room. The wrinkles iron out easily out of the package, too. "—David
