    39 Things Your Friends Will Probably Buy Right After You Do

    It's time to become the cat hammock/hot sauce/light therapy lamp influencer you were always meant to be.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! All of them were independently selected by our editors. Some may have been sent as samples, but all opinions and reviews are our own.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A pair of wireless sleep headphones so versatile you can use them for everything from playing white noise to fall asleep or blasting music on a run — 110% would not be surprised if half the neighborhood outfits themselves with them by the end of winter.

    2. A CurlCap, a satin-lined backless adjustable cap designed with natural hair and updos in mind, so you never have to worry about your hair snagging or getting damaged. The question is less if your friends are going to get them too and more whether or not you should get different colors or match.

    3. A rechargeable hand warmer complete with double-sided heat and three different heat settings that'll make you the envy of everyone gritting their teeth through the winter cold.

    4. A bottle of Drop It, a natural wine sulfate and tannin remover that works its magic on your glass in just 20 seconds, sparing you the infamous Post-Wine Headache and allergic reactions. It'll be hard *not* to shout from the rooftops about that (especially since unlike everyone else, you don't have a one-glass-of-wine hangover anymore!!).

    5. A streak-free anti-fog spray you can quickly apply to eyeglasses, sunglasses, and face shields to prevent them from fogging up while you're wearing a mask, then shout about to all your fellow glasses-wearing buds.

    6. A pair of sherpa-lined joggers so warm and comfortable that whoops, they just became your only personality trait, so your squad will pretty much *have* to get on board.

    7. A set of Bauble Bar face masks you can get in a ton of chic prints, all of which your friends will probably be sporting within the next two weeks.

    8. A set of affordable, highly popular (seriously, these have nearly 40,000 popular reviews) wireless Bluetooth earbuds all of your roommates want to buy so that they too can finally do at-home workouts without blasting Beyoncé through the apartment when half the place is asleep.

    9. A Pet House candle designed to quickly mask miscellaneous pet odors and smoke so effectively that it'll be a miracle if you post about anything else in the group chat again.

    10. A rose gold, flameless rechargeable electric lighter made with a long stem so you and your candle squad (we all have multiples of those, right?) can light all your beloved three-wick candles without wasting matches or gas.

    11. Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Curl Defining Creme made with coconut oil, shea butter, aloe, and avocado oil help define and moisturize curls without buildup, so the next time you load Zoom everyone will pull out a pad to learn your routine and take notes. This medium-hold creme is ideal for wash 'n gos, twist, or braid outs.

    12. A dainty beaded face mask chain you can snap right into your mask to keep it on your person while you're driving in the car between errands and start a new rainbow trend 🌈.

    13. A sparkling-wine saver that will keep your bubblies bubbling so you can pop your prosecco any day of the week and know you won't have to waste one single drop. I personally was convinced to buy this by multiple friends, and have since made it my mission to sing its praises in every single key.

    14. A pair of affordable winter boots that actually deliver on traction — these anti-slip soles have made me, a certifiable Clumsy Individual, feel a lot more steady on my feet walking in the snow and icy pavement, and I've been telling all my fellow klutzes about them ever since.

    15. A super popular time-marked water bottle you can get in a bajillion different colors, so your whole friend group can match while y'all try to hit your water intake goals each day. It's designed to fit into car cup holders and has a button by the mouthpiece to pop the cap off for easy access.

    16. A Nintendo Switch skin everyone in your Animal Crossing circle will want to get their hands on faster than Tom Nook can say, "That'll be a bajillion bells."

    17. A bunch of Miracle-Gro "food spikes" so effective you'll want to put your before and after pics of your dying plants on a billboard for your fellow plant parents to see. Not only can they bring plants knocking at death's door back to life, but they'll continuously feed them for 30 to 60 days.

    18. An adorable We Rate Dogs daily calendar so darn cute you'll end up sending each page to the group chat every morning until they all end up with the cuteness on their desks, too.

    19. Glossier's Cloud Paint blush, which I personally love because it feels like fingerpainting your face. It's thick enough for a noticeable glow, but subtle enough that you don't have to be super precise about it — basically every time I complained about makeup being too hard, a friend rec'd it to me, and I've neeeever looked back.

    20. A detangling brush with an easy-to-hold handle that's so effective on all hair types that it's amassed over 17,000 5-star reviews on Amazon — in other words, you're about to make this bb TikTok-famous.

    21. An Orolay jacket, aka *the* Amazon coat, complete with sherpa-lined hood. You may have noticed a lot of people wearing it last year when it first got popular and it truly lives up to its cozy hype. I can speak from experience when I say once one person gets it, the whole friend group wants to get on board.

    22. A mesh body exfoliator from LuvScrub that'll knock all your loofahs and washcloths out of the park — its large size and unique texture help smooth and clean skin all over your body, including hard-to-reach places like your back, so you can get the kind of post-exfoliation glow everyone around you will want for themselves.

    23. A window-suctioning cat hammock so darn precious that the moment you 'gram it your DMs are going to be flooded with people demanding a link.

    24. A bottle of Truff hot sauce, which is basically what happens when truffles and gourmet hot sauce have a ridiculously decadent baby with a *ton* of Instagram clout. Be the hot sauce influencer you want to see in the world.

    25. Essence's Lash Princess mascara for instant length so effective, affordable, and truly luxe-feeling, you might just collect your friends' addresses and send it directly to them.

    26. A lightweight, faux-leather tote so versatile, it'll last through every season and Instagram pose. If people aren't asking about it by then, they certainly will when they get a peek at its perfect wee side pockets.

    27. A set of Golden Girls-themed shot glasses so you can post a "tag yourself, I'm Blanche" and instead get a bunch of responses asking where the heck you got them.

    28. A sweet personalized beaded bracelet that basically *screams* "let's get matching friendship bracelets," especially because they are fully customizable by name, charm, and length ✨.

    29. A pair of sleek touchscreen-friendly gloves — you'll be so fast keeping up with the group chat even in the cold that everyone will demand to know your ~secret~. (🎶 Maybe they're born with it, maybe it's functional winter gear 🎶)

    30. A cold brew coffee maker so gloriously easy to use that all you have to do is stick your favorite ground coffee in the filter, seal the airtight lid on top, and pop it in the fridge overnight. Every friend group needs a Caffeine Master to keep them up to date with coffee hacks, and now you are decidedly it.

    31. Plus a set of Bottle Bright tablets so you can easily clear all those caked-on stains in your bottles, travel mugs, and even coffee makers without scrubbing them into eternity — good thing this comes with six tablets, because once you start showing off the before and afters, *everyone's* gonna want to try.

    32. A personalized Disney shirt that lets you choose the names and the icons on it, so you can start a glorious chain of Disney-loving BFFs getting matching shirts together ❤️.

    33. A vitamin C-based face serum for brighter, firmer skin that can also help reduce pores and redness, with results so satisfying you won't just want to tell everyone in your circle about it, but maybe? Even write? A song??

    34. A color-depositing clenditioner you can either use in the shower to maintain your hair color or even out fading highlights, *or* apply to dry hair for to get a temporary tint all on your own. If the popularity of that color-changing filter on Insta is any indication, everyone in your feed is going to want to be a part of this temporary dye fun.

    35. A folklore-inspired mug that every fellow Swiftie in your life is about to take a swan dive into Etsy to get to match.

    36. A selfie ring light with such superior lighting everyone in Zoom game night will text you on the DL to see where they can get one too.

    37. A UV-free compact light therapy lamp to mimic the morning sun and give a lil' boost of energy and happiness you'll probably be DMing every coworker about on Slack.

    38. A mug warmer you'll come to depend on in the mornings so aggressively that you'll start talking about it to friends like it's your child.

    39. A cropped workout tank with a padded built-in bra so versatile you'll want to pair it with everything in your closet, no doubt prompting a few of your friends to follow suit when they realize you've been low key living in it for weeks.
