    1. A "wine wand" to remove headache-inducing sulfates and histamines from your vino in as little as three minutes, so you can cut finally cut loose during your solo wine-and-cheese Friday nights without paying for it Saturday morning.


    Promising review: "What a difference these have made in my life. With my allergies it was impossible to enjoy a glass or two of wine with out nasty side effects: Stuffy nose, red face, and headaches. Now I can have a glass of wine and not have to dart to a package of Benadryl! Makes a great gift. Even thinking of splitting a box into stocking stuffers. Each wand is individually wrapped. Have purchased these several times and will continue to do so." —KellyH

    2. A shampoo scalp massager you can use in the shower to massage and exfoliate your scalp, helping you achieve Peak Weekend Decadence without physically going to a salon.

    Promising review: "I cannot explain how good this feels when you're using it! It relaxes you and for sure is better than just using your fingertips to shampoo your hair. It actually goes down to the roots and makes sure that it gets into all the spots it can to clean your hair. I can tell you right now that my hair has never felt more smoother than after I started using this product. I would definitely recommend this!" —Romie Patel

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

    3. A pour-over coffee maker, because your Saturday self deserves to have a cup of coffee so perfect that it cancels out all the ones you blindly chugged during last week's commutes.


    Promising review: "In my effort to slow my life down, I am choosing to make coffee in smaller, more 'hand crafted' quantities. It's paying off for me in a better-tasting cup of coffee ... and making me slow down and take more time with life. You can actually taste the difference in this coffee maker and pot at a time coffee. I am no longer making a pot, grabbing and gulping. I am now lingering in the making and drinking which adds to the enjoyment. Bought my daughter one too, so that she will start slowing down and smelling the coffee." —Deborah Daniel

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    4. And a set of adorable hanging cat spoons for said coffee, since you waited so long for the weekend that you deserve to have the cutest cup RIGHT MEOW.


    Promising review: "I loved these spoons so much that I ordered more for myself and my mother in-law. They attach to the side of your coffee mug easily, stay put, and don't even get in the way when you are drinking out of it." —Handy

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $4.99 (available in five colors).

    5. A Bluetooth shower speaker with a hook that attaches right to your curtains or a suction cup to stick it on your tiles, so you can invite Lizzo to your post-work week soak the way the universe intended.

    Promising review: "I bought this so I could listen to podcasts in the shower and in the bathroom from my phone, and I'm so glad I did. The Bluetooth is easy to connect the first time and every time I turn it on my phone will quickly and automatically connect. The sound quality is miles above that of my phone, mostly because it isn't echoing from on the counter. The sound buttons and volume up/down buttons are easy to use and I like that the speaker has both a suction cup and a clasp hanger so that it can be put practically anywhere. The battery also lasts forever, I've had to charge it only two or three times since I purchased it, and it gets 30 minutes of use easily every day." —Shawna Yanke

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in three colors).

    6. Plus a comfy bath pillow that will suction straight to your tub, because you plan on being emotionally suctioned to the tub for however long it takes for Netflix to ask you if you're still watching.


    Promising review: "This pillow is my best friend on a rough day! Suction cups hold well so pillow stays in place and just where I need it. I use it when I meditate in the tub and I'm able to sit up and relax completely without slipping down into the water. Very comfortable too and easy to dry/clean." —Jayme Blasiman

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    7. A roll-on migraine stick made with peppermint, spearmint, and lavender oils to help you soothe away that vague headache you were nursing through the whole work week in the comfort of your own jammies.

    Promising review: "This stuff is my go-to fix when I feel a migraine coming on. I suffer from sinus headaches and migraines usually once or twice a week. This product I put on each temple, under my nose and on my wrists when I feel the pressure starting and it cuts the pain to a minimum. It seems to stop the worst pain before it has a chance to start. Thank you for a great product! I will buy again and again!" —Brenton1985

    8. A glorious jar of pure, unadulterated Cadbury chocolate spread you can slather all of your weekend waffles and pancakes (if you're not too busy eating it out of the jar with a shovel).


    Promising review: "I was so excited to see that they started caring this in the United States now! I am in love with this chocolate, but I could not find anything out here that was comparable to Cadbury spread. It reminds me of Nutella, but 10 times better! I will purchase again, so that I can make sure I always have a container in my house for special occasions....or every day!" —Toddy Counts

    Get it from Amazon for $8.85.

    9. A set of magnetic bookmarks that will let you save your place while keeping your pages pristine as you tackle that perilously high pile of weekend reads you keep amassing.


    Promising review: "These are super cute! The colors are sophisticated and they are pocket size. I am using some myself and then giving them as little gifts to some of my writer friends." —Kristen

    Get a set of 15 from Amazon for $9.99.

    10. A tiny milk frother to make everything you drink taste like it was lovingly handcrafted by at your local coffee shop, even though the odds of you putting on pants between Friday night and Monday morning are zero to none.


    Promising review: "I’m a barista at Starbucks so obviously I know how I like my coffee. For a while I was using an immersion blender to froth my milk for my morning cup of coffee, but it just wasn’t doing what I wanted it to do. I finally bought this frother and I’m so so happy with it!! It doesn’t need to be plugged in so it takes up way less space. It is a lot quieter than the blender, and I can use any size cup I want because the frother is so small. Not only can I heat up my milk for a hot coffee, but I can also use it just the same with cold milk for my iced coffee!! Highly recommend this product!!" —Heather Michael

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99 (available in 10 colors).

    11. A mini waffle maker that will churn out adorably-sized, perfectly cooked-through waffles, so you can post your shameless #BrunchGoals Instagram flatlay from the comfort of your own couch.


    If you're waffling on the waffles, you can also use it for hash browns, paninis, biscuits, and even (gasp) PIZZA. If you can dream it, you can mini waffle it.

    Promising review: "It's mini mini, perfect if you're in a dorm/small apartment/just don't have a lot of storage space. It cooks super duper quick, honestly I think this would actually make enough waffles for a big group faster than my old waffle maker which was your typical heavy clunky Belgian waffle maker which took forever to heat up. The thing came with a little recipe book in the back of the instruction manual and the basic waffle recipe is perfect!" —Dana

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in nine other non-heart-shaped colors).

    12. A set of clear acne-absorbing cover patches that use hydrocolloid, tea tree, and calendula oil to target all those trouble areas that cropped up during your stressful work week, suctioning the gunk right out of them while you lay in bed casually ignoring half your texts.,

    Promising review: "I just received these today and almost immediately washed my face and put a few of these dots on my face, two across two large blemishes two across some small little spots. A few hours later I saw that white spots had developed on the dots and I took them off before bed and WOW. One of the two large blemishes I had was a big red spot next to my nose that was swollen and did not have a head. Like a cystic acne spot. When I took the adhesive spot off, it had shrunk down to nothing! I could barely feel it raised above my normal skin. I was seriously not expecting this product to work so well. My other spots also improved significantly, but they weren't raised and swollen so the difference wasn't so apparent and jarring." —Nessie

    Get a set of 40 patches from Amazon for $8.50.

    13. A 40-pack of velvet scrunchies so you can skip your usual weekday hair routine and spend the weekend at home rocking gloriously colorful messy buns.,

    These are also super gentle on your hair — I use them to sleep in at night, so I can wake up without worrying about my Day Two hair getting too tangled or having that dreaded hair tie crease.

    Promising review: "These scrunchies are literally the greatest purchase I have ever made in my life. They are so soft and definitely do not feel cheap at all and I am just amazed to get such high quality at such a low price. As someone with long, thick curly hair, scrunchies are very necessary to keep my hair up and I've always struggled trying to find ones that are both stylish and functional while still at a reasonable price. These scrunchies are freakin beautiful and they hold my hair up perfectly. While I admit I probably went a bit overboard and definitely do not need 40 scrunchies, they bring me joy and now I have a lifetime supply. Would def recommend." —Katherine

    Get a pack of 40 from Amazon for $6.55.

    14. A collapsible microwave popcorn maker that doubles as a serving bowl, so you can have buttery sustenance fall into a Netflix hole so deep it probably doesn't have a bottom.

    All you have to do is add generic kernels + whatever oils or butters you feel in your heart, and you'll be raring to go.

    Promising review: "This is a fast, effective and low-cost means to prepare popcorn. I got tired of paying a premium for microwave popcorn packets at the grocery. I didn’t want another appliance on my counter to air pop either. This was the perfect solution. I use inexpensive bulk popping corn, no oil or salt and I don’t have to worry about the metal in the microwave popcorn bags that gets extremely hot and scorches the upside down paper plate I have to put under the microwave bag each time. Plus, weren’t we told not to put anything metal in the microwave anyway? I pull the Salbree out, expand it and add a 1/4 cup of popping corn kernels in the base to the full line. I put it in the microwave for 3+ minutes and listen for the kernels to stop popping. Using the cool handles I lift it out of the microwave, give it a minute to cool and add just enough butter to give it flavor. Then I eat right out of the same bowl I cooked in. When done I dump out the few kernels that didn’t pop. I wash it out with dish soap and hot water, let it dry and then put it away for next time. Economical, safe, less oil and salt and only one bowl to clean. No new appliance and no metal in the microwave. Pure genius. A great value." —RobG

    Get it from Amazon for $16.90 (available in 16 other colors).

    15. A set of satin pillowcases so you can sleep in feeling like you're staying at a B&B. Plus, fabrics like satin create less friction for your hair, so you'll wake up with that perfectly mussed Saturday semi-bedhead all weekend long.


    Promising review: "Couldn't afford silk so ordered these. I love them. I've heard that sleeping on cotton is like rubbing your face on steel wool all night since that's how delicate the skin there is. All I know is I shower and style my hair at night and after sleeping on these, my hair looked freshly blown dry the next morning. I'm not exaggerating, hair looked the exact same in morning as it did after I styled it the night before. So, if this material is that nurturing to my hair I can only imagine how my face is loving it. I'm hooked and will be buying more colors." —BinaryCode

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.99 (available in seven colors and three sizes).

    16. A nail and cuticle oil that uses blend of jojoba oil, sweet almond oil and vitamin E to strengthen your nails, so you can spend some of your downtime bringing your nails back to life. Unlike you and your sleepy snooze-hitting self, they'll be raring to go on Monday morning.

    Promising review: "I had peeling, weak nails for years. I bought this in February. This size bottle lasted a bit more than a month religiously applying it 2-3 times a day. I was really seeing great improvement so I bought another bottle in late March. By May, all the peeling had grown out and my nails were getting stronger every day. I then bought the big 4 oz refill bottle because I never want to run out of it again! Cannot recommend this stuff enough!" —Diana

    Get it from Amazon for $8.50.

    17. A journal with 300 writing prompts ranging from things like "Write about a moment when you felt proud of yourself" to "Describe your ultimate sandwich," because there's no better time than a cozy weekend at home for some self-reflection.


    Promising review: "It arrived on time Saturday afternoon. It hasn't been a whole week but I've been writing in it since then. It's a great way to help you put your thoughts on paper and even learn about yourself if you didn't already know. The prompt concept is excellent." —Cierra

    Get it from Amazon for $11.29.

    18. A set of fairy lights you can use to add some whimsy to your windows and/or the blanket fort you're assembling and planning to hide under with a pile of books until the need for pizza rolls drags you out of it.


    It comes with eight different light modes, including a *twinkle* mode, with a controller attached to the lights so you can easily switch between them.

    Promising review: "Love the ease of these lights! I bought two sets for two different bedrooms for my daughters and they ABSOLUTELY love them! They are easy to hang up over the curtains. I love that I don’t have to worry about trying to string together several strands of Christmas lights that are way too long and super heavy over the curtain rod. The LED lights are very lightweight so they don’t put any extra weight on my curtain rods. Also, we love the different light modes that it can do. My girls love the warm glow that it gives to their bedrooms. The first thing my almost teenage daughter said was, 'My room looks like a Pinterest room!' So overall, it was a WIN-WIN! Definitely worth the money!" —stayathomemom

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99.

    19. A heating pad so cozy, someone is probably going to have to separate you from it with a crowbar come Monday morning.


    Promising review: "Love this heating pad/foot warmer. The material is so incredibly soft, it’s like sinking your feet into fluffy cotton. Also bought one for my daughter, and she emailed me today to tell me how much she loved it. It’s a great size to move your feet around in, but also to use as a heating pad for large areas such as your back. It heats up very quickly, the heat is evenly distributed. Has a nice long cord, so no need for an extension." —SHERRY L ROCCO

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99.

    20. A rechargeable electric lighter for whichever of your eight bajillion candles in the collection shoved under your bed feels most representative of your Weekend Mood (TM).

    Promising review: "If you're looking for an easy way to light candles, look no further. I've had this thing for a couple months now and I've only had to charge it once! I got tired of using matches and regular lighters to light the candles around my apartment and was initially going to buy one of those elongated neck lighters with the trigger. Thank goodness I decided to go with this electric lighter instead. Easy to use, no gas or fuel required, and the battery lasts a long time. Also, it's super convenient to not have to tilt each candle in order to light it! Highly recommend if you're looking for the easiest way to light candles!" —Matt S.

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    21. A Bluetooth-enabled record player so you can laze the day away listening to Harry Styles on vinyl, plucking all the various fruits he sings about out of a bowl and living your best life.


    Promising review: "This thing is great! The output is great. Very loud and clear with no distortion. I put the first record on it this morning and the audio quality and overall functionality is awesome. It also makes a great bluetooth speaker as well. The briefcase design makes it great for moving it room to room or traveling places with it. I highly recommend this turntable to both the beginner who's looking to get into vinyl and even the hardcore collector that's just looking for something more portable with some good sound!" —D. Morris

    Get it from Amazon for $40.51+ (available in 27 colors).

    22. A candle to set said "Weekend Mood," like Homesick's Sunrise Coffee and Evening Unwind candles, both of which will guide you on your "not leaving my bedroom for anything less than a fire in the building" journey. They smell of Black Espresso + Lemon Peel and Valencia Orange + Green Tea, y'all.

    Homesick Candles

    Promising review: "This has become one of my favorite candles. It smells so good, and the scent is very relaxing. It’s not overpowering, and it doesn’t have to remain lit for very long. The scent lasts even after burning for only 15-20 minutes. The candle itself is very beautiful and simple. You can place it anywhere in your home and it won’t look out of place. The packaging is also beautiful and presentable. These make great gifts for housewarmings, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, teacher appreciation, Christmas, and other gifts. This is definitely a company I would like to order more from." —Kelly S.

    Get the Sunrise Coffee and Evening Unwind candle from Homesick Candles for $34.95 each.

    23. A 16-pack of Korean face masks made with vitamin E and collagen to give your cheeks the kind of post-mask glo up that will make all your coworkers go, "OMG, what were YOU up to this weekend?" (Nothing. That is your secret. Literally nothing at all.)


    The pack comes in 16 different varieties, so every night your face can take a new adventure — I'm talking lavender, cucumber, green tea, the whole shebang. Now your face can ~taste the rainbow~.

    Promising review: "These sheet masks are legit. I use one every night, it has been week one and my skin has never looked better! I haven’t had the confidence to step out without foundation in a while. After using these sheet masks consistently I actually want to go out without foundation. My skin feels smooth, it looks soft, clear, bright, and glows! Not only does it work on me but my mom has been using them with me and there has been obvious improvement in her skin texture. After washing my face at night with a mild face wash I slap one of these babies on for 30 min and remove the sheet. Massage the extra essence into my skin and neck and I wake up with dewy, soft, supple, and glowing skin. I just rinse my face with water, which I used to have to do a mild face wash before and don’t even need any moisturizer. My skin stays moisturized all day. I can’t live without these now. The price is so worth it for the results." —Amy Sanchez

    Get a 16-pack from Amazon fo $9.99.

    24. An attachable wine aerator that will make your Friday night glass of two-buck Chuck taste like it was hand-poured by a sommelier in the south of France who knows the rat from Ratatouille personally.


    Promising review: "I bought these because I drink red wine fairly often. I am not a wine specialist, but I know what I like and buy very good wine at very reasonable prices... so I received these, and am very pleased with them. Very well priced and a nice sturdy item. I did a taste test to see if I could notice a difference. Sipped some wine out of the bottle left to “breathe” for a couple of minutes; then some wine poured through the aerator and sipped immediately. The difference is VERY NOTABLE, even to my untrained palate. The wine tasted fresher, smoother, less harsh and more flavorful! I no longer drink reds without using these — and if I forget, I pour the wine back in the bottle and attach the aerator. Another nice feature? There are no wine drops coming down the side of the aerator- the lip of the aerator stops that, so no more risk of dripping onto a tablecloth or a shirt. Great item, I plan to buy more as gifts!" —J Long

    Get a two-pack from Amazon for $12.95.

    25. A lightweight breakfast tray you can prop next to you on your bed so you can graze on your eggs + avo toast while your laptop streams old episodes of The Office safely in your lap.


    Promising review: "I absolutely love this item. It can be used in so many different ways! It is also very sturdy and high quality. I highly recommend it. Perfect size to set your computer down and a coffee or a larger breakfast. I love it!" —Micaela

    Get it from Amazon for $21.99.

    26. A plush robe so cozy that you'll probably fall asleep in it after your shower and wake up so content that you'll feel like the human equivalent of a sunbeam.,

    Promising review: "This is the softest robe I have ever had and it fits perfectly. At first I thought it may be to lightweight when I picked it up, but after I put it on I fell in love with it. It is very warm and so cozy I hate having to take it off. Love the color and I highly recommend it." —Rita

    Get it from Amazon for $36.99+ (available in 14 colors and sizes S-XL).

    27. A handy three-tier cooling rack, for when you've watched so much Great British Bake-Off that it inevitably leads to a reckless cookie baking spree.


    Promising review: "I really like the clever and functional design of this cooling rack, especially for limited counter space kitchens as mine. I use this for lightweight baked goods such as cookies and croissants. I have not tried it yet for heavier items such as pies, but for those, just attach the racks on both sides for support. What I love most is this rack folds up for storage — a clever space-saver when stored too. All around, great product design with good quality construction. Highly recommend for lightweight baked goods." —myreview

    Get it from Amazon for $14.21.

    28. A rapid egg cooker so you can have your Sunday morning eggs any which way you want them, whether you want a good old-fashioned hard boil or like 'em a little runnier.


    I, a certified Lazy Individual (TM), own one of these babies and have faithfully used it every week for upward of two years. Perfectly medium-boiled eggs every time. I even bought one for my parents so I could spread its majesty to them as well (but also mostly so I could use it when I come to visit, if we're being real). Some reviews note that the alarm on it is a little loud, but the new models have significantly decreased the volume!

    Promising review: "Super easy to use, works as expected, small counter top footprint. I like hard-boiled eggs but am too lazy to make them. Now I am eating them as often as I like. All you gotta do is set it up with the water and eggs, then you can forget about it. No worries about water boiling over on the stove or overcooking the eggs because you took too long a shower or got distracted by a phone call." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99 (available in five colors).

    29. A glare-free Kindle Paperwhite that also happens to be waterproof, so you can spend the whole weekend reading in the bathtub without fear of capsizing To All The Boys I've Loved Before.


    Promising review: "I am an avid reader and adore the new Paperwhite! To me, it’s the perfect reader. No light bleed through, easy to control the amount of backlight, easy to download books and simply just easy to read my books. It did not come with the very latest software uploaded but within 24 hours of being connected to my Wi-Fi, the kindle updated itself. Using overdrive on my phone or tablet, it’s easy to borrow books and return books from my library. The newest update allows you to return right from your Paperwhite and that is a huge improvement. As a Prime member, I get a free book every month plus I follow several emails that alert to free or greatly discounted books. 8 GB of storage is way more than enough for me. I find the weight to be significantly less than a paperback even with a case. I am happy with this purchase!" —Sherry Thurman

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99.

    30. A precious turtle mug, because look into his eyes. Look deeply into them. He knows you're going to ignore every Facebook Event invite in your feed this weekend, and he doesn't judge you. He's ignoring his, too.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $16.

    31. A subscription to Book of the Month, a service that will deliver a specially curated book to your door so you'll never have to experience the peril of knowing in your bones that it's time to take a three hour-long Saturday night bath but not having the right reading material for it.

    Here's how it works: Each month, the service specially curates four books in different genres that they know readers will love. You get to pick which one you want sent to you based on those selections. Fall in love with more than one synopsis? You can do an add-on book for that month! Plus, it you don't like any the books in the selection pool, you can pause for a month and grab a book the next one instead. Books on books on BOOKS, y'all.

    Get a three-month subscription from Book of the Month for $49.

    32. A set of cat-themed tarot cards to ease your mind about the future when the infamous Sunday Scaries hit. Just because next week is a great unknown doesn't mean you can't find a way to stay paw-sitive!


    Get a set from ModCloth for $20.

    33. A pair of wireless noise-cancelling headphones so you can go full "me time" listening to your weekend playlist without also having to listen to your neighbors shout sports-y things at the television through the wall.


    Plus, the charge on these is no joke — in Bluetooth mode, they get around 30 hours of play time!

    Promising review: "Look, I can't compare these to Bose, because I've never tried them before - or any other $300 pair of headphones. However, these are fantastic for me. I work in an open office environment and sometimes the level of noise spikes from ambient to distracting to intolerable (you know how there's always that one person in the office louder than everybody else? I sit next to five of them). The very first day, my colleague and I looked at each other and nodded, it's time for noise cancelling headphones - so I did some research, read some reviews, and bought two Cowin E-7's for us. Having never tried active noise cancelling before, I have to say I'm impressed. For me, it puts a strong damper on the background noise. Now if people are talk-yelling loudly, of course I can still hear them, which is great because if someone yells FIRE! I'd like to know about it. But I'm streaming my Boston sports radio and my Pearl Jam and clacking away while my noisy keyboard to get some revenge to those who don't have noise-cancelling headphones like these." —Boston Kris

    Get them from Amazon for $69.99 (available in five other colors).

    34. A compact bread maker, because you've spent approximately half your life dreaming about being the kind of person who spreads strawberry jam on your warm homemade bread on a Sunday morning and it's high time to make that cozy dream your reality.


    This little bb comes with some big options — its settings let you make bread gluten-free, decide what kind of crust you want, and add little mix-ins like fruit and nuts by reminding you partway through the bread-making process to add them. The inside is also dishwasher-safe, so there's less cleanup and more bread consumption.

    Promising review: "My husband and I cannot stop baking. This arrived over a week ago and we have made two loaves or dough or jam daily! I can't speak for its longevity (I hope it's excellent, it seems sturdy!) but this puppy can crank out some delicious household staples. Pizza dough, fresh bread, *French* bread, bread with fruit or nuts, CAKE, and yes even JAM!! Amazing! It can tackle anything. Cleanup is ridiculously easy, just don't scratch the nonstick surface! The recipes need some tweaking to calibrate with your specific machine (I found that most needed more moisture), but some of the mistakes are still tasty! I was skeptical of the jam-making feature and ended up being extremely impressed." —Ether

    Get it from Amazon for $67.75.
