    Amazon, Emma Lord / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Editor Emma Lord has experienced the joy of this ottoman in her own home:

    "I recently got one of these for my new apartment to stash my candles and ~candle accessories~ in and it's pretty much become my favorite piece of furniture?? I use it to prop up my feet during work hours and sometimes if I want to eat on my couch I'll use it as a tray. It's also sturdy enough to sit on, if I ever wanted to have guests over and needed an extra chair. It was RIDICULOUSLY easy to set up — I had it done in less than 10 minutes, and probably didn't even need the directions. It also just looks so darn cute (and comes in so many colors that I'm tempted to buy another!)."

    13. A levitating planter that's almost as magical as the feeling of successfully keeping a plant alive.

    Get it from Bloomist for $186.

    19. A multitasking LED alarm clock with two USB ports for charging up devices overnight without employing approximately 800 extension cords. Plus, it's pretty and can double as a little bedside mirror!, @miriam. gin1 / Via

    Promising review: "Let’s be honest. There are tons and I mean tons of clock options out there but the reality is that majority of them are hideous. I wanted a clock that was both functional and looks great. This product is exactly that. I find the second dim level perfect. Bright enough without being blinding. Having 12-hour and 24-hour options are great. I only use it as a clock so I can’t speak much about using it as an alarm clock. The USBs on the side make charging small devices a breeze. Guests are always complimenting the clock and asking where I got it. Highly recommend!" —Catherine

    Get it from Amazon for $20.95 (available in three colors).

    20. A set of affordable tarot tapestries that will make any space feel a bit more mystical. Just don't be surprised if your friends see these and start asking you for readings.

    22. A remote-controlled moon lamp with 16 different color options if you want to recreate the happy feeling of sleeping under the stars every night.


    This has 16 colors. The moon itself is true to the actual moon's surface and texture. It can be controlled by touch or by remote and runs on a rechargeable battery. You can charge the lamp on your computer, power bank, or wall outlet.

    Promising review: "Really enjoying this moon light. I see that there are other companies producing these moon lamps. I have to say that this product far exceeded my expectations for the price. The lamp is a joy. Stays charged for long periods of time. The lighting options with a remote are wonderful. This item is also very durable, as it has been dropped many times, but still worked great. Recommended." —TSMinAZ

    23. A stick-on prismatic window film because it refracts light to fill your home with literal rainbows, and who doesn't just want to smile when they see a rainbow?,

I wasn’t expecting all the beautiful colors the film presents throughout the day. It’s like having crystal prisms all over the house and it changes from minute to minute! Applying it is also very easy, I recommend getting the application kit that is recommended by Amazon." —Stacy M. Ambrose

    Get it from Amazon for $9.98+ (available in seven sizes).

    25. A tassel-trimmed linen-blend striped tablecloth that's stain-resistant and has the added benefit of instantly making your table look like a cottagecore fantasy.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this tablecloth. Its simple design and tassel accent make it look very special and sophisticated without being too bland or neutral. I was extra surprised when I went to clean off a beet stain on the line that it easily came off with water and hydrogen peroxide. The stains were out in 10 minutes of dabbing. Beets usually dye fabrics and I wasn't expecting much to come out but it did! I can not say how durable this tablecloth is since I just got it but it seems durable to me. The linen has a good weight to it so I expect it to last a long time." —Denise Adan

    My colleague Skyler Murry is a big fan of these candles. In her own words: 

    "I am a candle FIEND! And I love astrology! This candle is just the best of both worlds. The label and fragrance are customized based on your birthdate to match your 'inner spirit.' The company provides descriptions of your personality, your emblematic tarot card, ruling planet, and ruling number. Such a fun astrological reading in the cutest packaging! I honestly felt like I was getting read to filth but I loved how detailed it was. This candle burns so smoothly, too, and my particular scent of hydrangea, peony, and jasmine is just so me. I love the delicate floral scent as it's strong without being overbearing.

    Get it from Birthdate Co. for $38 (originally $48; available in 365 styles).

    28. A wooden set of moon phase shelves so you have a functional place to display your tchotchkes and knickknacks that also doubles as a standalone art piece.


    Promising review: "Incredibly easy to install thanks to the sawtooth hangers being installed in the appropriate locations on the back of each shelf. They do stick out, which makes the shelves hang on a very slight downward angle. It is probably OK that it does, but I decided to add 3M Velcro picture hangers to the lower part of the shelf to add some more stability. They’re very lightweight, packaged very well, and came with hanging hardware. Took me less than a half-hour to hang, but I think it could be helpful for others if a hanging template was included. Perfect for stone and crystal collectors, or a space-themed kid's bedroom!" —Wildflower_Powered

    Get the five-piece set from Amazon for $79.95.

    29. A natural edge wood side table if it's time to retire your dinged-up plain IKEA side table and upgrade to something a little more stylized.

    Promising review: "Easy peasy assembly. Yes, you do need a screw driver and a drill. There's a template for the holes already screwed onto the underside. Screws are provided (check inside the box!). The wood was even, no blemishes or cracks. Three legs are solid and the piece doesn't wobble. Great purchase. Love it." —Patseeker

    Get it from Amazon for $95+ (available in three styles).

    30. A simple yet elegant full-length mirror because OOTDs are returning and you've been looking for the perfect not-wildly-expensive selfie mirror to capture them all


    Promising review: "Love this mirror! Just what I was looking for. Doesn’t look cheap at all, and honestly great for the price! Would recommend!" —Jackie

    Get it from Target for $60.

    31. A bamboo serving tray featuring original tattoo-inspired artwork to corral candles and remote controls while dressing up your coffee table.
