1.Sweary coasters that'll draw the attention of roommates and guests alike, because nobody likes water rings — even if they're on a coffee table you found on the curb.
2.Or some pretty — in more ways than one — absorbent coasters with a luxe look bc like I said ^, you'd rather your roomie dirty up some coasters than a table you could conceivably use for several more years!
3.A cute lil' welcome mat so they'll be reminded to wipe their paws. But, tbh, it's so cheap that even if they come in from trudging through fields of mud and you've gotta toss it before the lease is up, it's FINE.
4.A seagrass rug to cozy up your space without having to shift funds around to spring for a floor covering you'll both probably spill rosé and salsa on the next time you go on a Schitt's Creek binge.
5.And a luxe-looking runner with a price tag you may scratch your head at, but I can assure you is legit because I own this very runner and am still loving it more than a year later!
6.A pretty dinnerware set with service for six that'll withstand conditions in the microwave, dishwasher, and freezer. So hopefully that'll cover all the bases....
7.And a set of six porcelain mugs that can also be used in the dishwasher, freezer, and microwave (hullo, mug cakes!!!).
8.A lively, affordable shower curtain to bring some foliage into your bathroom because you're preeetty sure that your roomie is responsible for overwatering all your houseplants. R.I.P.
9.An abstract bath mat pretty enough to serve as a distraction while you're stuck in the washroom longer than you expected. AND it's machine-washable!
10.A feather lampshade you can put on a variety of existing lamp bases or fixtures to zhuzh up your communal space.
11.A sleek side table with a waterproof surface and catchall basket below to help fight against living room clutter.
12.Or a couple of nesting tables will give you a lil' wiggle room when it comes to entertaining options that require using every square inch of tabletop surface for serving up wine and cheese.
13.A trio of ceramic planters with built-in drainage so the windowsill or table your plant bbs live on won't suffer any damage in your child-rearing pursuits.
14.A punchy throw blanket with some pom-pom trim that'll make any onlooker guess you spent about a hundo on it at Anthropologie. Yet if somehow red wine gets allll over it while you're away for the weekend, it won't be a big deal to replace.
15.A *sturdy* rolling utility cart you can use in the kitchen, bathroom, or even as a bar cart for the bottles of booze you wanna display.
16.And an extremely nice looking decanter and set of six glasses to park on the top tier of said bar cart ^. If they cheaped out on the party whiskey (despite your requests), at least it'll look nice in this.
17.A dozen colorful drinking glasses made of shatterproof material and come in at barely more than $2 a pop so if your roommate DOES manage to shatter one, it won't be the end of the world.
18.Stemless wine glasses with silicone sleeves that'll help combat against the slipperiest of butter fingers. Remember when your roomie dropped a wine glass on the patio? Yuppp.
19.Turkish cotton towels that'll be super easy to machine-wash in case you find out after the fact that your beloved roomie dried off with your towel.
20.Quick-drying hand towels anyone with a super humid bathroom sitch and multiple people regularly using the same bathroom will especially appreciate.
21.A Scandinavian-inspired love seat to help distract you from their hand-me-down couch that reeks of their parents' dog and hold you over 'til you can shell out more than $200 for a couch.
22.Or a sizable futon with a versatile design your overnight guests can customize as they please.
23.A foldable storage ottoman with enough stylish details to make it feel like a decor choice instead of a practical necessity.
24.A set of silicone-coated kitchen utensils for whipping up a variety of dishes in your shared cooking space. *And* the included container will look swell sitting out on your counter because your kitchen storage space is a total joke.
25.Faux-fur pillow covers to give your tired throw pillows some new life. HOPEFULLY they won't nap on the couch and slobber all over 'em, but EHHHH if they do it's OK.
26.A pretty lotus flower lamp for a bit of accent lighting that'll be your new favorite thing you bought from Amazon and compensate for the lack of tchotchkes you have out in your shared area because they're notoriously clumsy.
27.Or an industrial-style leading lamp if your combined style skews more metal and Edison bulb than floral. Plus, it'll put out enough light for late-night reading sessions because you two are forever reading one book and then passing it off to the next person.
28.A couple of Eames chair lookalikes – they could make for the perfect accents or dining room chairs! Seriously, they're chic AF. Just look at 'em!
29.A corner bookshelf with some serious design pizzazz to bring the visual interest without the huge investment.
30.A faux-sheepskin rug to throw on a chair seriously lacking in comfort, at the foot of your couch, or in a number of spots!
31.A trio of foliage wall art that comes printed on canvas so there's no need to hunt down any frames. Oh hey, it'd look *so* nice on that blank wall in your bathroom!
32.A media stand that'll be cheaper than your go-to Thai takeout order total. (Those noodles just keep really well for leftovers! If any of them make it that long....)
