    1. A set of frames in different sizes so you can create a gallery wall made of your favorite photos or your kid's artwork.


    Promising review: "Easy to use and very light for wall hanging of photos in a grouping. Very happy; no glass to break and frames look great without being heavy to hang." —Catherine DeCoske

    2. A set of gorgeously lush velvet pillow covers to lend a little color and texture to any room in your house.


    Promising review: "I used to manage a Pottery Barn and they have stunning velvet pillowcases. I was wondering what these would be like in comparison and honestly, I like these better! I purchased both the mauve pink and the golden khaki color. I’m about to purchase seven more now that I know how beautiful they are. The colors are spot-on and are a tad shiny but velvet should be unless stated otherwise. The brighter colors will be great for spring and summer. The price point is FANTASTIC!!" —MBATLANTA

    Get a pack of two from Amazon for $13.49 (available in eight sizes and in 32 colors).

    3. A simple little wall mirror perfect for hanging on top of your favorite table or shelf and giving you that extra place to touch up — plus, mirrors help make a tiny space look bigger, which if your apartment is anything like mine, you very much need.


    Promising review: "Exactly what I needed for my room!!! Took a chance on it cuz I just needed a small mirror and all the mirrors here were so expensive. There were no reviews so I was nervous but it’s exactly what I wanted. The mirror isn’t warped or anything. It took a while to arrive but I don’t care." —Becca

    Get it from Amazon for $19.37+ (available in four frame colors).

    4. A stackable set of geometrically shaped storage trays you can potentially use as plates in a very beautiful table setting.


    Promising review: "I purchased these trays for food displays. They are thin and pretty small but everything looked great on them! They definitely can’t handle anything incredibly heavy so in the future I’d use them as decorative trays for utensils/napkins or cheese platters but you can’t beat the price. I love the colors." —melissa houghtalin

    Get the set of four from Amazon for $9.88.

    5. A decorative marble paperweight you should definitely roll the dice on and get for your desk.


    Just a note, this item is handmade and so some variations in the coloring of the marble and size could vary slightly.

    Promising review: "Beautiful piece. Works awesome and it's made to be so smooth to the touch. Like a piece of art for my desk. It's awesome!" —curg shields

    Get it from Amazon for $9.45 (available in four shapes).

    6. A light up marquee letter so you can finally see your name in lights — even if it's just on your own walls.

    Promising review: "This letter is super cute and exactly what was expected. The letter took two double A batteries and all bulbs lit up just fine; nothing looked defective at all. Although, this does look homemade and if anything were to break, it doesn’t look like something I could fix. For example, if a bulb broke or burnt out, there would be no way of fixing it or replacing the bulb." —Jennifer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.98 (available in silver and white).

    7. A photo line to hold all your most precious memories — plus it's easy to switch things out when new memories become even more precious.


    Promising review: "Easy to install — just be aware unless you use double-sided tape you have to screw into the wall to secure the item." —Erica

    Get it from Walmart for $4.99.

    8. A stunning decorative copper double wall mesh bowl that looks like it belongs in a museum more than it does your home — unless your house is a museum in which case, can I come over?


    Promising review: "We ordered this for our kitchen trestle table. The copper is very rich and attractive. The bowl holds all kinds of fruit. With the mesh design, air circulates around the fruit, reducing spoilage. This was a very good purchase for us and we recommend it highly." —Dagot

    Get it from Amazon for $18.36.

    9. A decorative tray embossed with a faux-alligator finish that'll look perfect sitting on your coffee table and holding all your little treasures.

    Promising review: "Love this tray! Very well made, the perfect shade of gold, large enough to hold coasters, remote controls, etc. Makes a great addition to the coffee table as an eye-popping accent piece." —Messi76

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99+.

    10. A lightweight foldable storage ottoman for help keeping all the stuff you want out of sight hidden away — but they also look quite nice as part of your decor setup., Amazon

    Promising review: "These cubes are great. They are the smaller size but they fit perfectly under my coffee table. My friends and I have been able to sit on them with no issues. Half the price as the same kinds sold in The Container Store!" —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in five colors).

    11. A set of room-darkening velvet curtains to give your living room a glamorous touch.

    Promising review: "Purchased these for my studio, which is in an old mill. Wanted them for their insulating properties more than to block out the light because my studio loses a lot of heat at night due to its enormous windows. The curtains/drapes work great for both — I am especially pleased with how well they help keep the space from losing heat! Before having the curtains the space would lose about 8 degrees in temperature overnight (which in the winter is a significant amount, especially in the northeast). Now, with the curtains, the space no longer loses heat overnight! It is now so nice to go into my studio in the morning and find it still toasty warm!" —Noname

    Get them from Amazon for $34.99+ a panel (available in four sizes and six colors).

    12. A roll of the adhesive chalkboard contact paper so you can turn your boring old walls and surfaces into usable and fun spaces your kids (and let's not lie, you) will love.,

    Promising review: "I've tried other brands of this and I'm telling you this one is the best. It actually sticks to my wall. It wipes off better and looks nicer. I have another brand on my wall that I started with and had to use spray adhesive to get it to stay up. After I ran out, I ordered this and I've never put anything on it. I'm very happy and my son's city is complete. :0)" —J. jernigan

    Get a six and a half foot roll from Amazon for $12.95.

    13. A perfectly coordinated set of books to help make your shelves look like they belong in the pages of an interior design magazine.


    Promising review: "If you've been looking for decorative books, then look no more — you've found your shop! Colors are true to photos and I love how they were real books! Not those hallow, fake ones you see. This made decorating very easy, fast shipping, and quality suburb. Will be ordering more from here in the future!" —Amazon Customer

    Get a set from Covogoods on Amazon starting at $4 (packages start with just one book and go up to 25 books, they're also available in 16 colors including custom colors).

    14. A leather table lamp for help bringing in more light to your space and making it feel way cozier., Amazon

    Promising review: "This is a great little lamp, very classy-looking. It definitely looks more expensive than it is (it's not flawless, but you can't see the minor imperfections unless you're looking closely). It is somewhat small as some other reviewers have said, but that was what I wanted. It fits perfectly on my little nightstand. I think the sample photos of it on the dresser give you a pretty good idea of its size. I would definitely recommend this lamp, especially at this price. I might even buy another one for my desk." —Bee

    Get it from Amazon for $34.40+ (available in 16 colors).

    15. A wire basket to beautifully store the things you need but have no place to put.


    Promising review: "I use this product on the sink counter in my bathroom to store all my toiletries. It makes it super convenient, all while maintaining a great clean look! It can hold like 10 different bottles, so the size is great and is easy to pick up and move when you need to clean!" —cteras

    Get it from Amazon for $15.95+.

    16. A set of pleated fabric shades so you can get some privacy without totally blocking the light.


    Promising review: "I live in California really close to the beach. The house I'm renting doesn't have air-conditioning and it gets hot! I bought a window air conditioner for my casement window (slides horizontally instead of up and down), which doesn't let me lower the blinds over the A/C unit. I was trying to figure out a way to close the gap next to the air conditioner and these work perfect! You can trim them to size and simply stick them to the bottom of your installed blinds. They keep the sun and heat out and give me privacy. Very happy!" —Shelley R

    Get it from Amazon for $8.97+ (available in sizes 36" x 72" and 48" x 72").

    17. A set of fresh sheets with a subtle but playful print to freshen up and bring a little more color into your bedroom.


    Promising review: "Absolutely love these sheets! Pretty design!! Quite stiff at first but throw them in the wash with fabric softener and they sleep softly!! Will purchase another set! Great price too!!" —Texas Gal

    Get it from Amazon for $34.20+ (available in sizes twin-California king and in five prints).

    18. A bold and beautiful houseplant to help bring any room to life — just make sure you follow the provided tips to keep it alive.

    Promising review: "I really didn’t expect much but I still took a chance. The plant came quick and it looks fairly healthy. There are browning under some of the leaves, I guess that’s to be expected especially this time of the year, where temps are extremely high. It was also packaged well and the soil was nicely moist. Now I just have to make sure to keep this guy alive and healthy." —Celeste Grace Macuto

    Get it from Amazon for $18.98 and make sure to pick a copy of this handy little guide so you can keep this bad boy alive.

    19. A stainless steel and glass soap dispenser that looks expensive but is actually quite reasonably priced.

    Promising review: "I purchased these to use as shampoo, conditioner, and body wash dispensers. I wanted our shower to look like a spa! They are great quality and many people I know have copied our idea, so they are a hit! Very high quality, the plunger part is always the most important part. These are metal and not plastic, something which seems to be hard to find when looking for dispensers." —Rebecca Morea

    Get set of two from Amazon for $18.99.

    20. And since you're getting fancy new soap dispensers why not try out some adorable little rust-resistant labels that kinda make it look like you're giving your soap and lotion some jewelry.


    Promising review: "I bought these lotion and soap dispenser tags 'cause people were getting confused which bottle was which because I have them both by the bathroom sink. I like these a lot and they really look nice on my decorative bottles." —Amazon Customer

    Get the set from Amazon for $14.99.

    21. A Moroccan doormat that'll help soften up the area around your sinks and doors.


    Promising review: "I love these rugs!! I have two small ones and a 4x6 now. Perfect modern farmhouse look! Take about a day or so to flatten out. Otherwise, great!" —Brittany

    Get it from Amazon for $13.47+ (available in eight colors and 17 sizes).

    22. A bundle of faux jasmine flowers for adding a vibrant statement to any room — without the need to replace them every week.


    Promising review: "I have never used artificial flowers but these changed my mind — they are blow-you-away gorgeous! Every client comments on these. I combined these with some other silk flowers from Amazon and it's really stunning." —Lisa B

    Get a 10-piece bundle from Amazon for $20.99+ (available in four colors).

    23. A very festive — and even comfier — set of cotton shams to really help make the bed the life of the party.


    Promising review: "These are so awesome! I swear they look like something I bought at a super-expensive department store. The quality is superb, and the material is very soft and thicker than I thought it would be." —Ashley Kulesa

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $19.80.

    24. A beautiful metal tray that'll keep the things normally sprawled out on your counter in one organized place.


    Promising review: "I am very pleased with my purchase. I was somewhat concerned that it might be 'brassy' and cheap-looking but I was having such a difficult time finding what I wanted, I thought I'd give it a try. It's a great addition to my bathroom. The gold is subtle and sophisticated. Couldn't have picked a better product." —Nonni

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three colors).

    25. A hanging macrame wall mirror I am almost 100% sure would sell for way more at a trendier store — rhymes with bourbon shout litters.

    Promising review: "This mirror is GORGEOUS!! I bought this with little expectations and it's simply amazing! It's securely placed in the macrame and hangs flat. The photographs show the front and back of the mirror. I want more but don't need them. :D" —M. Bradley

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two colors).

    26. A semi-sheer fabric shower curtain so you can make your bathroom look like a gorgeous garden.

    Promising review: "This is a well-made curtain that is good for a small space as it doesn't dominate. Its muted color palette allows for many options for towels, etc. It does need a liner. It looks great with the dragonfly hooks." —lola

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99.

    27. And a motherf#@%ing crystal mouthwash bottle because Listerine ain't s#!t if it's not being gargled out of crystal.

    Promising review: "You are probably underestimating this product. It is really pretty, and works really well. It goes a long way toward making the counter in the bathroom look a lot nicer." —Anonymous in LA

    Get it from Amazon for $15.07.
