    1. A classic Burberry canvas shopper designed with the colorful stripes of the rainbow — all in support of LGBTQ youth.,

    In his last collection with the legendary British luxury brand, Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey merged the iconic Burberry plaid with the colorful stripes of the rainbow, and he did it for a good cause.

    This Rainbow Check collection is part of a larger initiative to support charities that provide help to LGBTQ youth. Burberry has also made donations to three organizations that aim to bring awareness, resources, and mentor LGBTQ communities throughout the world: the Albert Kennedy Trust, the Trevor Project, and ILGA (the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association).

    Get this tote from Burberry for $650 and the pouch from Nordstrom for $580.

    2. A set of magnetized Fenty Beauty Match Stix to help you conceal, contour, and highlight your face to perfection.

    Everything Rhianna touches is gold, including your complexion after you use these lightweight makeup sticks that are curated based on skin tone. They're designed to help conceal any blemishes you don't want the world to see, contour so every angle is your best angle, and provide you with just enough of a highlight so you actually do have a perfectly golden glow.

    Promising review: "I've never had the time or patience to contour with cream, but I have always loved how natural it looks. I have very oily skin so I need to be careful with the creams. This set is amazing. I used these sticks all over my face tonight for a party. After two hours of sweating and being my oily self, I looked in the mirror and nothing had moved! It's cream that turns to a powder consistency. So these are PERFECT for oily skin!! RIRI YOU HAVE SLAYED EVERY AREA OF THE MAKEUP WORLD!!" —feres8

    Get the set of three from Sephora for $54 (available in light, medium, tan, and deep).

    3. A totally classic *and* unique Lacoste polo that you can customize in nearly 500 ways.

    Chances are you've seen the Lacoste crocodile before; you may even have one hanging out in your closet. It's a classic logo for a very classic brand, but now the croc is getting a makeover and you get to decide its new look! Lacoste has launched “My Croc,” a way for you to customize their classic AF polo by choosing from a variety of fits and colors — and from more than 20 crocodile logo options — plus monogramming.

    Get it from Lacoste for $98 (available in women's and men's sizes S-L, and kids' sizes 1YR-16YR for $49.50).

    4. A cozy AF lightweight Barefoot Dreams knit cardigan, because let's be serious: You spend most of your life in your comfy clothes, so why not invest in them?

    With over 1,500 reviews on Nordstrom, this cozy little sweater is truly loved. Lightweight enough to be layered but comfy enough to lounge around the house in, you'll probably end up wearing it way more than you'll want to admit.

    Promising review: "LOVE this sweater! So soft and warm, but not heavy and bulky. I’ve worn it casually with jeans, and dressed it up with slacks and dressier boots — perfect! Washes well too, I used the gentle cold water cycle and hung to dry." —MrsR922

    Get it from Nordstrom for $116 (available in sizes XS-XL and in seven colors).

    5. A cruise so you can have a fun, luxurious, and affordable vacation on the high seas.

    20th Century Fox Television

    During the first few months of the year, the cruise line industry experiences something called Wave Season, which is basically Black Friday but for cruises — it lasts for three months instead of one day — when cruise lines slash prices.

    Royal Caribbean is currently offering 30% off all cruises, plus up to $1,000 to spend on board, and $100 instant savings in addition to the percentage off. AND there are even more deals if you decide to upgrade to suite level! Kinda feels like they're giving it away!

    Check out Expedia for all the current deals from major cruise lines.

    6. A pair of 14K white-gold star-studded earrings encrusted in pavé diamonds.

    IMHO there is no better way to treat yo' self than with a sparkling piece of jewelry! And if you wanna take advantage of some awesome deals, March is the time to do it: It's after Valentine's Day but still far enough away from Mother's Day that retailers usually offer some serious promotions to help keep their sales up.

    Blue Nile is currently offering up to 20% off all the amazing fine jewelry on its site. For a limited time, you'll get 20% off orders $500 and under, and 15% off orders over $500. Just use code UNDEROVER18.

    Get them from Blue Nile for $250.

    7. A metal and mirrored rolling bar cart with some vintage flair to help elevate your home-decor game.

    Nothing says "I'm really good at pretending to be an adult" better than a well-curated bar cart, and this one is perfect for getting you on track to create that ruse. Designed with two tiers of mirrored trays and easy-to-maneuver wheels, it can easily blend in with a glam AF decor aesthetic or a more modern industrial one.

    Promising review: "This bar cart looks stunning next to the dark blue walls of my dining room. It's a great value for the price. It seems like very good quality. This piece blends nicely with my Restoration Hardware dining room furniture, but I feel it could also go with more casual or more modern furniture." —KatieS87

    Get it from Nordstrom for $149.

    8. A smooth-rolling Samsonite Winfield 28-inch hard-shell suitcase so you can glide through the airport like you aren't carrying a million and one things.

    March is another great month to invest in luggage! It's smack in between the madness of holiday travel and the start of summer vacations, so there are tons of sales. If you've been hesitant to replace your worn-out suitcases, now just might be the time. This Samsonite 28-inch hard-shell has over 800 reviews on Amazon, with people praising its roomy design and durability.

    Promising review: "Bought the purple version and am in love with it! Perfect size for international travel lasting more than two weeks. Super light (so I won't have to worry too much about packing/bringing back gifts), the color is noticeable but not flashy, and it moves great. I also love that it has a built-in TSA lock." —Marlena Kubota

    Get it from Amazon for $109.99+ (originally $189.99, available in six colors). Check out some more affordable suitcase options and a few of our favorites.

    9. A lightweight, waterproof Patagonia jacket and a set of air-carbon Fischer Koa 110 skis — both on serious sale right now.,

    If you want to score some massive deals on ski and snowboard equipment, March is the month to do it! Sporting goods stores are trying to clear out their inventory for summer-sports season and usually have some pretty serious clearance events. (Sales will continue into April, but the inventory will probably be picked over by then.)

    Backcountry currently has a ton of its ski and snowboard supplies on sale, and Amazon also has a huge selection of ski and snowboarding supplies you can find great deals on.

    Get the Patagonia jacket for $489.30+ (originally $699, available in sizes M-XL and in black, blue, and green) and a pair of Fischer Koa 110 Skis for $225 (originally $749.99), both from Backcountry.

    10. A pair of showstopping Off-White C/O Jimmy Choo Elisabeth 100 tulle and satin knee boots everyone will stop in their tracks to ask you about.

    Virgil Abloh’s cult fashion label Off-White has teamed up with uber-luxurious shoe brand Jimmy Choo to create unique, street-style-inspired designs. Nestled in exclusive packaging, these will be a gift delivered by the shoe gods themselves. If you're into unique and luxury fashion, splurging on a piece from this gorgeous collaboration might just be worth your hard-earned money!

    Get them from Net-a-Porter (available in Euro sizes 36, 37, and 37.5) or from Jimmy Choo (available in sizes 5.5-9 and in pink or black) for $1,795.

    11. A Peloton cycling bicycle you can use to attend awesome spinning classes from the comfort of your very own home.

    Peloton sells a high-quality cycling bike that you can have delivered right to your doorstep — and the best part is, you can participate in live or on-demand classes at no cost! If you're someone who loves to take cycling classes, this investment could save you tons in the long run. It'll also track your progress with in‑depth metrics and help you plan fitness routines to reach your goals.

    Promising review: "The Peloton instructors are great! And by this, I mean educated, tough, motivating, and fun. They make you want to ride, want to push yourself, want to come back time and time again. That is huge when it comes to getting fit — having an option that motivates you and that you enjoy. This has definitely improved my fitness and strength." —Peggy Gillen

    Get it from Peloton for $1,995.
