    1. A plush sherpa blanket that's fuzzy yet lightweight, perfect for those of us who treat throw blankets like an at-home second skin no matter the season.

    a light purple blanket tossed on a chair

    "When I'm at home, I always have a fleece throw basically glued to my body. At my childhood home, it's a Harry Potter themed one I've had upwards of 10 years. In my apartment, it's one of two fleecy ones from Target. Staying with my family during the pandemic, my mom was NOT going to let me be without a go-to blanket, and got me the lilac version of this fuzzy wonder as an early birthday present. It's perfect — cute, affordable, and lightweight. I get hot easily, so I wouldn't want a blanket much thicker than this, but it's plenty plush, which is probably why there are so many reviewer photos of pets snuggling up with it." —Katy Herman

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four sizes and in 24 colors).

    2. A one-step hunter green nail polish for getting a longlasting, eye-catching manicure without the need for a base or topcoat.


    The formula is vegan, cruelty-free, and infused with argan oil, and vitamins B5 and C for stronger, healthier nails.

    "I fell in love with this shade when I saw it and bought it immediately! It's such a lovely and eye-catching shade of green. The créme formula means it's thick so I only need to run over my nails with just one or two coats. I was actually surprised when my nails didn't chip for over two weeks — my other thinner polishes would chip within three days. That only told me I'd been using the wrong formula and polish this whole time! Orly's where it's at. Plus, my best friend and her little sister saw my nails AFTER they had already chipped and looked not-their-best, and they STILL noticed the color, said how pretty it was, and asked where I'd gotten it! That's how you know, guys!" —Nusrat Sultana

    Get it from Orly for $9.99.

    3. A sleek multi-device charging station because it's 2021 and you've got approximately 100 devices that need charging and only two available outlets.

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed, Great Useful Stuff

    "I love having a spot to charge all of my devices at once! My laptop, phone, and camera batteries all fit with plenty more space in case I need to charge something else. I love putting all my devices on it at night so I never have to try to remember if I charged them or not. Plus, it makes it easier to keep track of them! No more trying to search for my laptop charger in the living room, my phone charger next to my bed, and track down the last place I saw my camera batteries. Now, they all have a home!" —Kayla Boyd

    Get it from Great Useful Stuff for $30+ (available in nine colors and with built-in power ports for an additional charge).

    4. A versatile Kate Somerville lifting eye cream with hydrating hyaluronic acid and vitamin C to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and just generally give eyes a brighter, not-so-tired look and feel.

    Buzzfeed / Christine Forbes, Sephora

    "This product contains peptides, algae, and vitamin C to improve the appearance of skin. Mind you, I don't usually reach for 'anti-aging' products because everyone's skin is technically 'aging.' However, this cream is really hydrating, and I use it in rotation once a week." —Christine Forbes

    Get it from Kate Somerville for $120.

    5. This sleek Cricut cutting machine so you can make some headway on all those lofty DIY dreams and get to creating custom labels, decals, stencils, stickers, and whatever else your imagination (or Pinterest) can dream up.

    Amazon, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed

    Each machine includes a fine point blade and housing, an adhesive cutting mat, a black fine-point pen, access to Cricut's design software Design Space, and a 2-week free trial to Cricut Access, which gives access to a library of over 100,000 images, fonts, and projects and designs. Despite some negative reviews claiming you do need Cricut Access to use this device — you don't! You can individually purchase fonts or find free files online.

    "It's me. I'm the one labeling everything like I'm living inside an episode of The Home Edit. My husband assisted me (I'm not the best when it comes to crafts) in making labels for all of my makeup. It was really simple to choose a font, print out the labels on vinyl, and apply it to the containers I had purchased. Can't wait to fill 'em up and continue labeling items for my pantry!" —Heather Braga

    Get it from Amazon for $199 (available in four colors).

    6. A scalp massager if you're looking to maximize your shampoo sesh with large silicone bristles that not only feel ~super~ relaxing but work to gently exfoliate the scalp and remove flakes.

    Emma Lord / BuzzFeed

    "I recently started using one of these and WOWZA, it really helps you get extra mileage out of your shampoo. I have a whole lot of hair on my head so sometimes it's a struggle to feel like I've soaped up my whole scalp thoroughly, but this was a very effective way to spread out the suds and really get them to the roots. I was worried it might tangle in my hair, but it was totally fine on that front, too. I've noticed that my hair has been a little less greasy at the roots since I started using it a few weeks ago. And I'm echoing a ton of reviewers here when I say it just feels reeeeeally, really nice." —Emma Lord

    Get it from Amazon for $7.98+ (available in three colors).

    7. A lightweight cordless vacuum that packs big suction powers into a slim stick design that weighs less than three pounds. It can run for up to 70 minutes on a single charge and ~like magic~ converts into a handheld vac for quick clean-up jobs.

    Kayla Suazo / BuzzFeed

    "Story time: Last year I splurged on a very expensive Dyson vacuum. A few months after buying I moved across the country and it got lost in the move. Not looking to pay the same price, I wanted a more affordable but equally great option. Enter: the Tineco. For half the price, I got a new cordless vacuum that I ended up loving more than my last pricier version. It works just as effectively at picking things up, and also has a 'Max' mode like the Dyson to get hard-to-reach crumbs, hair, and dirt buried in carpet. There's even a sensor that turns red and automatically boosts up suction when the vacuum approaches super dusty areas, so you know (even if you can't see all that pesky dust!!) you're vacuuming it all up. I love this workhorse so much, I put him to use every day just to feel that cleaning high." —Kayla Suazo

    Get it from Amazon for $229 or from Walmart for $229.

    8. A pair of recycled fleece sweatpants for fellow fans of comfort who are looking for the coolest pair of cozy pants money can buy. What makes these pants extra cool is that they divert around 40 plastic bottle from landfills and onto your cute booty, instead.

    Rebecca O'Connell / BuzzFeed

    "I loooove Richer Poorer joggers. The fabric is nice and thick, making it perfect for chilly mornings. The elastic is strong — I've spent tens of minutes pulling on the band and it always snaps right back into place. On top of comfort and fit, these things just...look really cool! It's not every day you can find a pair of green khaki sweatpants." —Rebecca O'Connell

    Get it from Richer Poorer for $72 (available in sizes XS–XL and in 11 colors).

    9. Athena Club's plant-based deodorant because natural deodorants that actually, ya know, WORK are hard to find, and this aluminum- and cruelty-free formula delivers with too cute packaging to boot.

    Athena Club

    "I know deodorant doesn't sound particularly exciting or fun, but I'm actually excited about this little life upgrade. I just received a sample of this a couple days ago and I think I've found my new go-to deo?! I've always felt like natural deodorant never works, and I have sacrificed on my usual cruelty-free ethos and my icky feeling about using a deodorant that contains aluminum to keep using a major name brand that I felt worked better. But when I first swiped on this stuff, I loved the pleasant but mild smell and already felt like it was different. I will confess, and I know no one here will judge me, that I have skipped several shower days in quarantine with my family, and this empowered me to skip another. I'm not going anywhere and my parents love me unconditionally, OK??? But I also felt totally fresh with this stuff on — I stayed dry and smelling A-OK pretty much all day. So far, I totally recommend this!" —Katy Herman

    Get it from Athena Club for $12 (free shipping).

    10. A gel-enhanced seat cushion to leave you feeling ~supported~ even when the work day stretches into a work night (womp, womp).,

    The velour cover zips off for easy cleaning in the washing machine.

    "My mom experiences sciatic joint pain that makes sitting down for long periods of time (or even taking walks sometimes, unfortunately) an incredibly painful chore. This cushion had SO many good reviews from people who described experiencing the same pain so I got it for my mom for Christmas. She uses it every single day and has told me on several occasions that this cushion is a BIG help for her. She also likes to bring this with her on long car rides so I'm def planning to order a second one that she can just keep in the car so she won't forget it." —Marquaysa Battle

    Get it from Amazon for $24.20+ (available in two colors).

    11. These extra-thick poop bags so you can get to the business of taking care of your dog's business with easy-tear, easy-open bags that fit in virtually any dispenser AND are made of corn, so they're naturally biodegradable.


    "I know that the price of these poop bags might seem a little ridiculous, but trust me, they are worth it. My fam lives in a condo, so we are basically poop-bag experts because we use them a couple of times a day. And these are by far the best poop bags we've ever used. They seriously open so easily, which is amazing in cold weather. Plus, they're made out of corn, so they're eco-friendly. Seriously, I never thought I would be passionate about poop bags, and yet here I am. We've bought these again and again and will continue to do so in the future." —Abby Kass

    Get a 12-pack from Target for $15.89.

    12. Lightweight-yet-supportive high-waisted leggings if you're still on the hunt for the ultimate pair of wear-everywhere leggings

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Aerie

    "During this entire year (wow) of working from home I have made it a personal goal to find the BEST black leggings of all time. The GOAT of leggings. And for me, Aerie's are IT! Between this style and their crossover pair, I've been wearing mostly these 'to work' for 12 months. I own multiple black pairs and love that they come in short lengths! A game-changer for me! These are the most affordable of all the leggings I've tried and loved — I simply cannot recommend them enough." —Heather Braga

    Get it from Aerie for $44.95 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and in five colors).

    13. A Harry Styles-inspired air freshener that smells as sweet as a watermelon sugar high, making regular car rides feel like a beachy getaway with the angel-voiced singer, himself.

    the car air freshener featuring an illustration of harry styles wearing a watermelon outfit with a watermelon print background
    Gifts By Ells / Etsy

    Gifts By Ells is a small Etsy shop based in Portsmouth, United Kingdom selling a fun variety of pop culture-inspired car air fresheners, mugs, coasters, and more!

    "I recently ordered this amazing air freshener for my car and I am seriously obsessed with it. First of all, it's ADORABLE. I absolutely love the fact that I have Harry Styles accompanying me on my trips to the Starbucks drive-thru and the grocery store, and can't wait for all the long road trips we'll take together someday. LOL, no, but seriously...this air freshener smells SO GOOD. I ordered the sandalwood vanilla scent, and I can't recommend it enough. I will say the scent starts off pretty strong, but over time gets more subtle. If you're sensitive to strong scents, you might want to consider getting the unscented version of this. Also, when your scent fades OR if you order the unscented version, you can add your own favorite scent to it, or just order a new one, because why the heck not? There's no such thing as too many Harry Styles air fresheners." —Sam Wieder

    Get it from Gifts By Ells on Etsy for $8 (available in 14 scents and in unscented).

    14. A beginner-friendly menstrual cup for a one-and-done purchase you'll keep for years that won't fill up your trash or empty your wallet like disposable period products. Just imagine — no more emergency runs to pick up tampons because your period came early.


    "The thing that freaked me out the most about menstrual cups was the thought of having to get up there and break the seal to take it out. So when I saw the Flex Cup, which is specifically designed to make that process easier, I figured why not give it a try. This is a purchase I would definitely file under the 'life-changing' category. Yes, there is a learning curve, but by my second cycle with the cup I felt like a pro. Even with the pull-tab taking it out can be a little messy (I tend to just do it in the shower), but it's definitely a more controlled experience than if it wasn't there at all. The Flex Cup has made my period less awful. A true feat!" —Danielle Healy

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in two sizes).

    15. An adjustable satin-lined beanie with a hidden drawstring because satin has endless benefits for hair (moisture retention, frizz control, follicle protection, etc.) and you should be able to get those benefits, day or night, in a comfy-cute style worth showing off.

    Grace Eleyae

    Grace Eleyae founded her eponymous small business after a bumpy car ride in 2014 left her chemically-straightened hair *literally* broken. the brand has grown into a full line of protective hair care products that are both fashionable and functional. In fact, Grace Eleyae silk-lined winter beanies made it on the 2020 edition of Oprah's Favorite Things!

    "I personally own one of these amazing caps and it has changed my life. My scarf never stayed on my head throughout the night so I always experienced frizz in the morning. I adjust this cap with the hidden drawstrings and haven't experienced that problem since I started using it. The cap is also perfect for rainy, windy, or humid days. A traditional hat without the satin/silk allows the humidity to seep under and cause major frizz or leave me with the dreaded 'hat hair.' With the Grace Eleyae cap, I can style my hair before placing the cap on and when I get to my destination and take it off, it looks exactly as I styled it." —Chantel Turner

    Get it from Grace Eleyae for $29.95.

    16. A convenient Home Chef subscription to make hectic days a little less hectic with easy-to-make dinner recipes and pre-portioned ingredients you can whip up in under 30 minutes! For days when cooking just isn't going to happen, you can opt for ready-made meals with ready-made peace of mind when your tummy starts rumbling.,

    "I recently tried Home Chef for the first time and I absolutely loved it! The whole process from signing up, to picking my meals, to cooking them was seamless and fun. I got three meals (two servings per meal) that came out to be six nights worth of dinner. The ingredients were so fresh, the instructions were incredibly simple, and the finish product was DELICIOUS. I also found the portion sizes to be really generous! My favorite thing about Home Chef is the ability to customize your dish when selecting your meals. If a dish contains something like fish, beef, tofu, etc. that you don't like to/can't eat, Home Chef gives you the flexibility to sub it out for another protein, usually at no extra cost. If you're looking for an accommodating, easy, and yummy meal kit, Home Chef is truly an excellent option! " —Samantha Wieder

    Get it from Home Chef for $6.99+/serving.

    17. A bamboo laptop desk so you can turn any corner of the house into a productive work (or relaxation) station complete with adjustable legs, a tilting top, and plenty of space for all the tech and tea you need to get the job done.,

    "I ordered this lap desk once I found out that working from home was going to be a lengthier deal than a month. I swear by this to get me through every working day. My apartment doesn't have the space for a desk (and I don't want to sacrifice a piece of furniture for one) so I set this desk on my coffee table for video calls. I use a 13-inch MacBook Pro for work and there's actually a lot of extra room left on the lap desk. I can even comfortably fit my coffee mug and phone on the surface. Or if it's a really packed day, a plate with lunch! When I'm not on a call, I'll sit on my floor, couch, or bed with this as a work surface. Plus the adjustable legs make it easy to fit whatever position I'm sitting in atm. By now, I think that this desk has been my longest-term relationship. But that's fine. I just humbly ask that you bury me with it." —Elizabeth Lilly

    Get it from Amazon for $33.99+ (available in three colors).

    18. A Turkish terry hand towel if you're tired of plain white towels that stain instantaneously and want something with a little more "Where'd you get that?" pizzazz.

    Melanie Aman / BuzzFeed

    Founded in 2012, Otherwild is a small queer-identified, woman-owned business offering well-designed houseware, apparel, accessories, and more — all with a passion for the handmade goods and the makers behind them.

    "This hand towel was a Christmas gift to myself and I love it! As you can tell, I have pink tile in my bathroom, which made establishing an 'adult' color scheme a bit difficult. I'm actually a big fan of the pink and wanted to find towels that would complement the hue but that weren't a boring white (that would inevitably stain quickly). This multi-colored cotton fringed towel is a nice pop of color that actually suits the tile IMO and it's soft and absorbent to boot! And Otherwild is a queer-owned, woman-owned business I feel good about supporting. They're based in Los Angeles and I'm already planning a trip to the brick and mortar store once it's safe to travel!" —Melanie Aman

    Get it from Otherwild for $32 (available in two styles).

    19. A floating metal gallery frame that'll give your long-neglected family photos the custom frame treament without the steep custom frame price tag.

    Buzzfeed / Christine Forbes, Target

    "I have collectible magazines and getting custom frames was completely out of budget. I ordered these floating frames and I was impressed by how nice they looked. These are simply stunning. After reading the instructions, I had no problem putting the magazine in the frame. Everything snaps into place. So far, nothing has fallen or even slipped and I didn't need glue. These would be great for a gallery wall, but I keep these on my shelves." —Christine Forbes

    Get it from Target for $16.

    20. A compact countertop sweep and squeegee set for easily maintaining spotless, crumbless countertops without relying on paper towels or sneakily brushing debris on the floor for future-you to handle., Amazon

    "I am baffled how much I enjoy this little brush set, which I absolutely use every day if not more than once a day. I don't have the type of edgeless sink that can really utilize how genius the squeegee is (but it's still good to redirect spills when they occur), but WOW can this thing get at crumbs! It's super compact (I just keep it tucked away in a drawer) and I am able to easily sweep crumbs off the counter without using my hands or a paper towel, which inevitably results in half the crumbs ending up on the floor, anyway. It's a small tool to have around that makes keeping the space looking and feeling cleaner with virtually no effort." —Danielle Healy

    Get it from Amazon for $7.99.

    21. An everyday face cleanser because even the most sensitive, acne-prone skin needs a gentle cleansing at the end of the day to keep things feeling clean, and this sulfate-free, serum-like formula delivers just that without feeling stripped-dry afterward.

    Alder New York,

    Alder New York is a small queer- and woman-owned skincare brand based in New York City specializing in genderless skincare that is so simple to use and aesthetically pleasing to the soul.

    "I use this cleanser after makeup removal and I SWEAR BY IT. It has such a creamy lather whether you use it with your hands or their cleansing brush (I love both methods tbh), and this is perfect for my sensitive, acne-prone skin. If they ever stop making this I will cry." —Allison Faccenda

    Get it from Alder New York for $12.

    22. A variety pack of all-natural cocktail mixers to wildly expand your low-calorie drinking options with ready-made flavors containing over 80% less sugar than traditional mixers like soda, juice, and ginger beer.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    Avec is a Black woman-founded business specializing in making mixers, and thereby your cocktails, packed with real juice and natural botanicals. The sampler comes with three of each flavors: Jalapeño and Lime, Ginger, Hibiscus and Pomegranate, Grapefruit and Pomelo, and Yuzu and Lime.

    "I did not expect to be blown away by canned mixers, yet here I am! Avec's drinks taste so fresh, it's hard NOT to make that 'ahhhh' sound you do after you have a tasty beverage after every single sip. Their flavors are classic, but all have a fun, modern twist. For example, I expected their 'Ginger' flavor to remind me of normal ginger beer, but inspired by Jamaican Ginger Beer, they combined ginger with pineapple juice, lime, and all-spice to make a perfect drink that blows run of the mill, sickly sweet, bottled ginger beer out of the water.

    I tried The Sampler and loved every single flavor. Avec is lightly carbonated, lightly sweet, and every flavor truly tastes so thoughtful. I actually don't drink anymore, but I consider myself a non-alcoholic cocktail connoisseur, and combining Avec with my favorite NA spirits like Monday gin, Ritual tequila, or any Lyre's flavor has never NOT been a home run. I haven't always been alcohol-free though, so I can also confidently say these would make equally incredible mixers for actual spirits. If you're looking to up your at-home cocktail game without busting out the juicer and making a ton of extra work for yourself, Avec is for you." —Rachel Dunkel

    Get a 15-pack from Avec for $45 (Save 10% with subscribe and save).

    23. A hecka durable duck chew toy so your adorable-but-destructive good doggo can keep a toy they actually like for longer than a couple days before your living room is covered in stuffed animal guts.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed

    "My French Bulldog is extremely spoiled and gets new toys all the damn time — my sister will, I’m not kidding, raid the rows of TJ Maxx once a week for a new seasonally appropriate squeaker. There’s currently a mangled pastel purple bunny sitting in the garbage because, yep, he chewed right through it in a day… which brings me to my point! Chew toys can cost anywhere from $10 to $14 a pop and last maybe three days with minimal play. My dog sleeps for 18 hours in a 24-hour cycle so it mystifies me that he manages to go through them so quickly. But a few months ago, I found this very plain yellow duck toy on Amazon that had over 14,000 reviews with buyers claiming it could take a lot of wear and tear. I thought, my doggo deserves the best so let’s try it out.

    Folks! This duck is woven with Valyrian steel! I literally purchased this on November 24, 2020 (and I’m writing this it is March 25, 2021) and it’s STILL GOING STRONG. It has not torn, ripped, there is no toy entrail fluff scattered throughout our living room.. nada. It’s still perfectly intact and Rockie generally prefers this toy over any other one in his ever-changing arsenal. It’s also perfect for his medium frame but I can see it being equally as ideal for smaller dogs because it’s lightweight, despite being on the larger side. My dog is also strange in that he prefers sleeping on this random blanket in the corner than in his bed and sometimes he’ll drag the duck with him and lay next to it and I eyes fill with tears when I think about how adorable that is.

    The best part is that the toy costs less than $10. Considering the quality, you’d expect it to cost *way* more considering that I haven’t had to replace it in the four months of me owning it. And again, I want to stress — my dog typically shreds through toys in less than a week, so to have one last 15x longer?! It’s pretty sweet. I also want to point out that the squeaker isn't obnoxiously loud which is pure bliss." —AnaMaria Glavan

    Get it from Amazon for $7.90.

    24. These wonderfully soft lounge pants if quarantine has made you realize the importance of investing in comfy pants you can proudly wear all day and night, whether you're on a conference call, watching TV, or both at the same time (I won't tell).


    "I own these pants and can attest to how truly wonderful they are. It's kinda hard to describe the material (if you own any MeUndies products you'll know what I'm talking about), but suffice it to say they are without a doubt the comfiest, coziest lounge pants I own. You know how nice it feels when you sink into soft bedsheets for the first time after shaving your legs? It feels like that every time I slip into them. Ask me when the last time I washed them was? *shrugs* I have no idea! What I do know is that I really love these pants. The one bad thing I have to say about them — and I'm being really nitpicky — is that the sizing is really weird. Even the XS is quite roomy (and I'm not tiny by any means), so I'd suggest sizing down!" —Melanie Aman

    Get it from MeUndies for $68 ($50 with a MeUndies membership; available in sizes XS–4XL and in 15 styles).

    25. A hilarious soy wax candle that alleviates your guests of any guesswork regarding if they've overstayed their welcome. I have a nightly skincare routine to get to, people, let's get a move on.

    Please leave by 9 pm candle
    @saltedburns / Via

    Salted Burns is a woman-owned Etsy shop based out of Saint Johns Park, Florida thaat has the funniest candles you'll want to gift your friends (and yourself) for all future occasions.

    "I love this candle for several reasons, one, it fulfills my minimalist aesthetic I have in my bedroom, two, it smells divine, and three, it's literally me in a candle. I always joke to my friends that I go to bed at 9 p.m. (no I don't actually fall asleep), but that's my bedtime and as a 27-year-old I am proud of it (LOL). This candle has such a pleasant aroma and has a nice clean burn. No one wants a candle with black smoke spiraling off the wick, and this one fits the bill." —Allison Faccenda

    Get it from Salted Burns on Etsy for $18 (available in eight scents).

    26. A splurge-worthy Biossance repair cream for thirsty faces in need of a little plumping, firming, fine line-reducing TLC that's also 100% vegan and cruelty-free.


    "This is one of the pricey beauty products where you buy it hoping it'll be just OK so you can go back to using the cheap stuff, but it turns out to be even better than expected — a bittersweet success. This decadent face cream is perfect for thirsty faces. Its thick consistency melts right into the skin, leaving it feeling bouncy and fresh without zero greasiness. Think: The glowing, dewy skin of an ethereal forest sprite. It's fragrance-free (good for sensitive skin) and uses vegan squalane (good for animals) to hydrate skin and help fight skin damage and free radicals. Also, present to help with hydrations? Omega fatty acids, ceramides, and plant sterols, aka the skincare dream team. If you're OK splurging, your skin will definitely thank you." —Rebecca O'Connell

    Get it from Biossance for $58.

    27. A trendy initial pendant necklace because durable, timeless accessories don't have to come at the cost of half your paycheck.

    gold square B initial necklace

    "My friend Lindsey had this necklace and sent me the link to it on Amazon (since I had been looking at some super expensive ones online) and decided to snag this one since it was a fraction of the cost. I have had this for over a year and it has not tarnished one bit. I've worn it in the shower, while sweating, and it's still perfect. I love the thicker chain; it adds some dimension when styled amongst my other jewelry, and it's just all around a fab jewelry piece to have in my collection." —Allison Faccenda

    Get it from Amazon for $11.97+ (available in five lengths).

    28. A comical Josh Mecouch cartoon print to fill up those blank walls with art that doesn't take itself too seriously.

    The Art of Pants

    The Art of Pants is the website and online store of Josh Mecouch, a hilarious and offbeat New York City-based cartoonist behind the popular @pantspants Instagram account.

    "Josh Mecouch is one of my favorite illustrators and is the artist behind the Instagram account @pantspants and the author of Conquer the Day: A Book of Affirmations (available for pre-order!). His art style is...truly...well...I've never seen anything like it. I really had to stop myself from buying everything in the store but eventually decided on this Egg Grab print and this Shirts Vs. Diapers print although this one really spoke to me, too. I'm still debating whether to frame them or hang them as they are right now. But either way, they bring some lightness and some amusement to my empty walls." —Melanie Aman

    Get it from The Art of Pants for $30.

    29. A compact Bluetooth-enabled treadmill so you can walk (or run) 500 miles, and walk (or run) 500 more — all without ever stepping foot outside! When you're done, the bar folds down so you can tuck it away under your couch or bed and leave guests wondering how you stay so fit without a gym membership.

    Chelsea Stuart / BuzzFeed, Treadly

    "The versatile treadmill is super lightweight and simple but it still keeps track of your speed, steps, time, and distance. The aluminum-reinforced hydraulic handrail allows you to start, stop, pause, and increase or decrease speed just like any other model. While the standard Treadly is controlled with a remote, the Treadly 2 works with an IOS app where you can set daily or monthly goals, join live groups, or compete against friends.

    I just got the Treadly 2 which has been massively helpful during quarantine. My mom was the only one home when it was delivered and despite being only 5' tall (she'll tell you she's 5'2"), she managed to get it into the house and up a full flight of stairs because she's just that stubborn. (She does now admit it's a two-person job, however.)

    Setup is a breeze as it's literally already put together — all you have to do it plug it in. The controls are easy to use and once you pair it with your smartphone, the app instantly recognizes whenever you turn the treadmill on. Beth (aka my mom) has an Apple watch so she used the activity tracker on there to see if the distance and calories matched up between Apple's tech and Treadly's tech and they did so she gives that a thumbs-up. After walking on it for a few weeks (roughly an hour per night, four nights a week), her favorite things are: The switch functionality (great for interval training), how stable it feels both on carpet and laminate or hardwood (she tried both), and overall ease of use ('it feels like you're walking on an airport people mover!'). Her only advice for Treadly — if you're listening — is to add a cupholder accessory LOL." —Chelsea Stuart

    30. A do-it-all rolling three-tier cart to add a whole bunch of open-air storage to any room that needs it. It can be a bar cart, bookshelf, bath caddy — you name it!,

    "I have one in blue and I think it was one of my smartest purchases this pandemic. It fits all my skincare and haircare products. It's so convenient, I can just grab anything I need and see it at a glance, and it looks super pretty in my room — not clunky at all." —Nusrat Sultana

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in five colors).

    31. A dynamic, earth-friendly chair made from recycled fishnets that has all the rigid, minimalist style you love in an ergonomic design that ~literally~ moves with you for support at every angle.


    "I own this chair, and, as someone with questionable posture who has spent years hunching over various desks, it's something I wish I had a long time ago! For starters, it’s super comfortable, especially with the soft topper. But the real magic is in the way it responds to your body and movements so you have support whether you’re leaning forward or back, making it an ideal desk chair but also great for the dinner table or living room. My lower back is very grateful! I love the modern and stylish design, and the fact that it’s eco-friendly. Plus, it’s super lightweight, easy to carry from room to room, and beyond simple to assemble and disassemble if needed (it took less than five minutes to put it together when it first arrived). I highly recommend this chair to… anyone who sits down!" —Jonathan Mazzei

    Get it from Noho for $375+ (available in two base colors and five topper colors; free shipping and returns).
