    26 Products From Macy's That People Actually Swear By

    Buy one, love it for years, buy it again.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A 22-piece Pyrex container set, because nothing's better than waking up at noon on Saturday and thinking, "Hell yeah, I've still got some curry in the fridge."

    This set includes three two-cup round containers with lids, three four-cup round bowls with lids, one three-cup rectangle container with lid, one six-cup rectangle container with lid, and three one-cup small round containers with lids. So, it has everything, all made with Pyrex quality.

    Promising review: "I've used, and loved, Pyrex for my entire lifetime, so I bought this set for my soon-to-be-married niece. Great variety, highly useable, and I'll likely buy another set. This was a SMOKIN' DEAL!!!!!" —SuzyQ

    Price: $39.99

    2. A pair of Teva sandals to take you from the street to the surf to a full-length mirror for #OOTD pics.

    I've been wearing these all summer, smashing these NYC streets, and I can't believe I ever spent a summer without Tevas. The best sandal brand, fight me.

    Promising review: "I bought these shoes after wearing a pair of knockoff Chacos (mock-os, if you will) and the difference in fit and comfort was outstanding. I was planning on buying other sandals, but was convinced by a booth at Pitchfork Music Festival to consider Tevas and, boy, am I glad I did. These shoes have saved my life on a few occasions, because of their tread, solid fit, and ability to keep my feet cool. If I wasn't a broke college student, I would definitely buy multiple pairs of these." —hella helen

    Price: $50 (available in sizes 5-11 and three colors)

    3. A Clinique moisturizing lotion that reveals your glow, since you've turned 30 this year for the fourteenth birthday in a row.

    You can use this lotion alone or as the third step in Clinique's three-step skincare system, which starts with their facial soap and clarifying lotion. If you're hesitant to revitalize your skincare routine with this, take comfort in the fact it qualifies for free shipping and returns.

    Promising review: "I've used this moisturizer for years; my daughter has used it for years, and my granddaughter has been using it since she became a teen. It's wonderful, proof being I passed it along to two girls I love so much!!! It keeps our skin looking fabulous!" —MomMom

    Price: $28

    4. An IPA beer-making kit so you can stop asking what's on tap and instead become the tap.

    This kit includes a starter kit, Diablo IPA refill, and eleven 25-ounce reusable, shatterproof bottles. "Whoa, that's a great beer. Who makes this?"

    Promising review: "I've been brewing off and on for 35 years, yet never before have I come across a home-brewed beer kit that tastes like beer, until this one. It's even started to trump some of my British beer purchases and is becoming my beer of choice. I don't know why so much home-brew tastes like swill, but this tastes like an award winner." —Neil

    Price: $108

    5. A pair of high-waisted Levi's to put an end to all your daily fashion conundrums.


    "Hmmmm, how do I stay as casual and cool as I was during my Wild Youth while not compromising the dependability I now know to ask of my wardrobe? Well, Levi's is it, again!"

    Promising review: "I wanted to introduce my 17-year-old daughter to Levi's and decided to get her these. I've worn Levi's since the '70s and knew she would love them too. They fit her like a glove and she's hooked! She bought two more pairs, after these, and wants to get more. We love Levi's!" —4newlevilover

    Price: $69.50 (available in sizes 24-32, and in seven colors)

    6. A two-speed KitchenAid hand blender that's nearly silent, so you can whip up a late-night peanut butter smoothie without waking anyone (or being asked to make one for them).


    This hand blender also comes with a three-cup BPA-free blending pitcher.

    Promising review: "I thought I needed a hand blender with more features, settings, and attachments, but what I really needed was one that can stand the test of time. This one has the heft to do that. After trying two burnt-out no-name hand blenders, I'm happy I picked Kitchen Aid." —Diane234

    Price: $49.99 (available in two colors)

    7. A cap-sleeve dress to ~ruffle~ a few feathers (in a good way) of many a brunch date or nearby exotic bird.

    I bring toucans to all my brunch dates, so this joke makes sense.

    Promising review: "I love it so much I bought it in every color. It's a great dress for work, and you can dress it up or down." —Annie2105

    Price: $69 (available in sizes 2-18, and in three colors)

    8. A Vera Bradley throw blanket you can toss onto your couch and get a genuine, "Wow, you really spruced up the place," from your mother-in-law.


    "Yes, I married your son and taught him my fancy ways."

    Promising review: "These are the best throws, and I own nine of them! They're warm, so soft, vibrant, make terrific gifts, and launder very well! My small dogs also love them." —Tg4atc

    Price: $49 (available in three prints)

    9. Or a plush, velvety blanket for anyone who knows any surface can become a bed (with the right blanket).

    Promising review: "I bought two of these, to start with, one in silver and another in khaki. We put the gray one on our bed and it's the softest blanket we've ever had. We had put it over our covers, so it wouldn't get ruined by our cat's claws, because they love it too! I recently purchased two more and I love these blankets, so you should definitely give them a try. They're so soft and warm, but not too warm!" —Bru1

    Price: $50 for a twin-sized blanket, $60 for full/queen-size, and $70 for king-size.

    10. An expandable utensil-drawer organizer to hold the giant spoons you use for cereal and the tiny forks you use for decadent desserts equally secure.

    It expands from 9 3/4" to 16 1/4" to fit your kitchen drawers. Seeing the product photo for this, I hope I (one day) become the sort of person who buys a utensil set instead of collecting mismatched spoons from who knows where.

    Promising review: "I do not know how I got along without it! I already have two and I'm going to buy a third!" —bunny

    Price: $24.99

    11. A swing top with a bold print guaranteed to impress your Fashion Rival at work.

    "Oh, this old thing? I bought it from Macy's. Do you like it?" Some of the top prints also can be worn with a matching pair of pants.

    Promising review: "I saw this top in a Macy's, while I was shopping in Minneapolis, and snapped a photo of it. I never forgot about it and I'm so glad it's still available online. A perfect neckline paired with a perfect length makes this top an outstanding choice for wearing to work. It's a heavier-weight poly-span that'll drape perfectly over your body. I purchased the black one (with pale pink flowers) and paired it with pink, slim-fit ankle-length pants and got compliments all day." —Cleo

    Price: $29.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL, and in 17 prints)

    12. A Cuisinart coffee maker you can program to start brewing directly before you pull yourself from beneath your velvety blanket and into another superlative morning.


    "The robot made us coffee, good morning."

    Promising review: "I bought this coffee maker, years ago, and was so impressed I got afraid that about it ever breaking. I asked my son to get me another one, so that I would have an exact replacement. The original one did finally fail, but I had the standby, thank goodness. Every other brand I've bought didn't last anywhere as long as Cuisinart and didn't keep the coffee as hot. Love it!" —welshie

    Price: $89.99 (available in two colors)

    13. A Fitbit Charge 2 that can be your reliable workout buddy without all the hassle of scheduling gym times and coordinating athleisure wear.

    Promising review: "I love tracking my fitness with the Fitbit Charge 2! It's so easy to use and update on my phone. It's so lightweight to wear; having it on has become so natural to me, it feels weird when I'm not wearing it. This Fitbit has actually motivated me to reach my step goals each day and climb more stairs to challenge myself, and I wish I could give this six stars!" —Holli

    Price: $149.99 (available in small and large, and in four colors)

    14. A Ralph Lauren cable-knit cardigan to make your daughter the Well-Dressed Young Lady you ~definitely~ were.

    "Yes, I'm wearing shoulder-pads; that was the style." Pair this cardigan with these ruffled socks to keep roller rink fashion alive and skating.

    Promising review: "I love how my little girls look in this cardigan, and have already purchased it in every color, because they look great with everything!" —Bella

    Price: $39.50+ (available in toddler, little, and big girl sizes, and in three colors)

    15. A Michael Kors crossbody bag that goes with everything and goes everywhere, with a slight jangle of its gilded strap to announce your opulent arrival.

    Promising review: "This is my absolute favorite purse and I take it everywhere!! I've had it for almost two years now; let me just say, I have not been easy on it, but it still looks BRAND NEW. I would recommend this purse over all competing brands and would always choose this one in a line up!" —Meghan1

    Price: $168 (available in 11 colors)

    16. A 1.6-quart air fryer, because sometimes you need a handful of french fries and you need it fast.

    Promising review: "This is a small air fryer, but it's oh-so-mighty! I have an extra-large air fryer that's great for a large family, but I found I was only using it for single servings. Lugging the heavy XL out was such a pain, and don't even get me started on how much cabinet space it required. This little Bella air fryer is nice and light, fits easily in my cabinet, and I don't mind taking it out every day to use. It's small, but it's more powerful than most other air fryers. It may not have all the bells and whistles that some others have, but it has proven that simple is sometimes better. It's cooked fish, frozen fries, and egg rolls perfectly, and all without using unnecessary oil. I love this air fryer so much I bought one for a good friend's birthday." —KimP

    Price: $34.99

    17. A six-piece play set so you can give a kiddo the gift of good, clean fun (and finally get some help cleaning up this damn house).

    This play set includes a broom, mop, duster, brush, dustpan, and storage stand. When I was a kid, I really wanted to help around the house (yes, I was a perfect child, you're right) and I could've done a better job with this.

    Promising review: "I've bought this set three times and it's been a winner each and every time! It's made well and endures the energy of youth." —Karen

    Price: $29.99

    18. A packable North Face rain jacket to make the jacket-tied-around-your-waist look a choice rather than a burden threatening to slip down at any time.

    Promising review: "I ordered a couple of these for my wife and adult daughter, who are two VERY tough-to-please people, and they both LOVE this coat! My primary goal was to purchase them something for wet weather, ideally with a comfortable and functional hood, and hit a home run on all accounts! North Face continues to impress us, and we now own multiple products of theirs and have never been disappointed. Great jackets and great value!" —Tom

    Price: $90 (available in sizes XS-XXL, and in six colors)

    19. A box of Frango dark chocolate mints that freshens up an otherwise drab evening at home with Netflix and a bottle of Trader's Joe wine.

    Do you prefer milk chocolate, perhaps?

    Promising review: "Frango chocolates have been my favorite since the 1970s!" —TLLCS

    Price: $10 (for a 15-piece box)

    20. A fleece Nike pullover, the hoodie all your other hoodies want to be when they grow up.

    Hoodie season is fast approaching, be prepared.

    Promising review: "I purchased one of these for my husband in obsidian, and he pretty much lived in this sweatshirt over the winter, so we ordered another in aqua." —LilC

    Price: $45 (available in sizes S-XXL, and in nine colors)

    21. An Urban Decay eyeshadow palette so you can use the eyeshadows you want instead of ~just~ the eyeshadows you have.

    This palette includes Urban Decay's Blow (light nude demi-matte), Nudie (soft pink-nude matte), Commando (light taupe-brown matte), Tempted (pale brown matte), Instinct (medium pink-taupe matte), Lethal (reddish brown matte), Pre-Game (pale yellow matte), Extra Bitter (burnt orange matte), Faith (medium warm brown matte), Lockout (rich neutral brown matte), Magnet (smoky gray matte), and Blackjack (warm black matte) shades, meaning it includes every shade you need.

    Promising review: "This is honestly the best eye makeup I have ever purchased. It's long lasting, has great colors for any skin tone, and comes with a great applicator brush. I will be purchasing this again and again." —shkj

    Price: $27 (qualifies for free shipping and returns)

    22. A Calvin Klein bedding collection to turn your bedroom into the set for a GQ photoshoot or a lure for distinguished dudes.

    The full collection (in queen size) includes a duvet cover, fitted sheet, throw, and pillowcases.

    Promising review: "CK sheets and pillowcases are the best. They are soft, durable, and (most importantly) the sheets never pop off. I tried all kinds of sheets and CK's are the only ones that stay put, love them." —nmdnmd

    Price: $35-200 (available in sizes twin-California King, and in seven colors)

    23. 3/4 carat diamond earrings that tell your chauffeur (or spouse) to park the town car out front, because you're the monarch of this grocery store.


    Promising review: "When I purchased these earrings, I expected top-quality jewelry, and that is exactly what I got. I will always return to Macy's for the very best jewelry for the best price, again and again!" —Nick

    Price: $700 (originally $1,000; available in white gold, rose gold, or gold gold)

    24. A denim shift dress you might actually choose over your favorite pair of jeans.

    Promising review: "I love this dress! The dark denim makes it dressy, yet the fabric is so comfortable, just like your comfy pair of jeans. I love that I can dress it up with jewelry and heels for a night out, or wear it to a picnic with sandals. This dress is so versatile and I'm sure I'll have it in my closet for many years and it'll always be in style because of its classic design. This dress is definitely a closet staple!" —jojowi

    Price: $135 (available in sizes 1X-3X)

    25. Block-heel Lucky Brand leather booties that's like a skeleton key for your wardrobe, unlocking all the looks you didn't know you already had.

    Promising review: "This is the first pair of boots I've had in years that has fit so comfortably and caused no foot pain, and I've already bought a second pair (so I can have two pairs for next year). I can't wait for next fall, to start wearing these again!" —petitelady

    Price: $129 (available in women's sizes 4M-12, and in six colors)

    26. And a Nest Protect smoke alarm to do so much more than alert you that the food you're panfrying is (over) done.


    The Nest Protect can connect, via WiFi, to your phone or tablet and send you status reports on the safety of your home. Phone alerts include low Nest battery, high smoke and carbon monoxide levels, and sensor failure; you can set voice alarms with custom location, and more. You can't always be there to make sure everything is okay at home, but the Nest Protect can.

    Promising review: "What an amazing product! In a house with small children, you don’t have to worry about anything, because the Nest Protect is keeping an eye on your precious family from sunrise to sunset." —John

    Price: $119
