    1. The Nordic Baking Book so acclaimed chef Magnus Nilsson can guide them through the art of creating (and enjoying) simply delicious baked goods.

    Phaidon

    Get it from Amazon for $39.47, Bookshop for $45.95 (to support local bookstores), or check your local library.

    2. A BAGGU packable tote bag that's super lightweight (dare I say cloud-like?) and perfect for traveling or everyday use.

    Amazon

    This tote folds up nice and tiny to fit in the included zip pouch!

    Promising review: "I love this bag for several reasons. I travel for work and I like to have my computer and a day's worth of clothes with me and this bag is great. I can put my computer bag, purse, neck pillow, and camera in this bag and it fits underneath the seat on the plane. It also zips up at the top and won't spill out while going through security. And it is also great because if it is raining it will close up and not get wet — it's not waterproof but it works well nonetheless. It is very, very lightweight and can be packed in anything very easily." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $50+ (available in seven colors).

    3. A sleek humidifier and essential oil diffuser so they can smell their way to hydrated bliss, without messing up their curated decor aesthetic.

    Amazon

    These diffusers boast an eco-friendly design, with handmade ceramic tops and natural wooden bases. They also make for a stylish night-light!

    Promising review: "This diffuser is beautiful and works well. It blends in with my furnishings, which was important to me when choosing one. I would recommend or buy this for friends or family." —Keith Klipfel

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available seven styles).

    4. A house-shaped tissue box cover that's simple, functional, and looks great – the minimalist trifecta, am I right?

    Amazon, amazon.com

    A few reviewers thought to personalize this product with fun decals!

    Promising review: "I first spotted this at a swanky modern hotel room with all-white decor. I love how it hides an unsightly branded tissue box — it practically vanishes! It looks so cute with the tissue-y 'billow' of smoke, and it's functional too. Every modern minimalist's dream." —nycgirl

    Get it from Amazon for $5.

    5. An display-worthy gooseneck electric kettle so they can conveniently get their hot beverage fix.

    A matte black kettle sitting on the electric warming base
    amazon.com

    Promising review: "We really enjoy using this electric kettle for our pour-over coffee in the morning as well as for boiling water for tea or for anything else that needs hot water (like ramen cups on a cold rainy day!). We love how sleek it looks sitting in our kitchen, and like the smaller footprint (relative to our previous Keurig coffee machine). The water pours out very nicely and slowly (but not too slow) and is easy to control, which is very nice, especially since we're dealing with boiling or near-boiling water. The taste of the water is very 'pure,' meaning it does not have a metallic taste at all. The other thing that we really like is the digital temperature readout and control knob. It's easy to turn and gives you precise control of the temperature you're looking for. We also like that the digital readout for the temperature is built into the base, and doesn't show up unless it's on, adding to the clean look of the unit (as opposed to having a regular LCD screen). Great kettle, we really enjoy it." —Chris R

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99.

    6. An ergonomic bean bag chair that's more supportive and less "I'm sinking into the floor" like some other bean bag chairs they've tried.

    Promising review: "I love this coffee mug — it keeps my coffee hot throughout my commute and into the workday, and it’s more comfortable to drink out of than a lot of other travel mugs I’ve used. It’s also completely leak-proof, so I can just throw it into my purse without worrying about it. Plus it looks great!" —Sarah

    Get it from Amazon for $33.94.

    8. A slim lay-flat water bottle – it's space-efficient and easy to carry (hello, wrist strap!).

The seams are all tight and even. The upholstery is uniformly stretched. Third, everybody who walks in admires it. It's low profile means it takes up less visual space in the room.

Maybe you don't water your plants as much as they need because it is a hassle taking them down, watering them, and then rehanging them up again. Relax, this watering can is the perfect answer. It is very good-looking, extremely well-made — this puppy will last for years." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this item! I installed it in a short hall that leads from the owner’s suite to the en suite bathroom, and it’s really eye-catching! I added stones and a single coral piece, which — with the affixed background — was enough to give it a completed look. It’s big enough for our small beta, but small enough that changing the water out every 4-5 days is easy (mitigates challenges the filterless design of the tank could present). Now that I’ve seen how simple this tank is to set-up and maintain, I’m considering purchasing a few more for other areas of our home )." —Monique

    Promising review: "I was shopping around for a couple of months trying to find auxiliary seating and storage for my stylish but tiny space. There are many similar options on the market for sculptural, multipurpose pieces. At this price, I figured I'd take a chance, and I'm glad I did. These are lightweight AND sturdy. This definitely looks more expensive than it is. The hidden storage may be lovely, but I'm not really 'storing' anything in there, except some linens and a bag of marbles to add weight." —M Roy Clark

    Amazon

    Promising review: "Amazing. I bought mine over a year ago and my cats LOVE them. I hung them up like shelves and the cats love to hang out on them, sleep, stretch, and survey the house. My friends don't even realize they're cat shelves until the cats jump on them! Fast-forward over a year later and they're still in pretty good shape. Worth the money! I picked up some L brackets at The Home Depot to hang them and they worked like a charm." —Jayni
