1.A ceramic cookware set so there's not a single meal you can't tackle thanks to your handy-dandy new tools. Giada, we are COMING for ya. Just...give us a few practice runs.
2.A desk organizer that'll both clean up your usual clutter to help you FINALLY focus *and* make your desk look promotion-ready.
3.An air-regulating Rubbermaid produce saver, because this'll make sure you can actually use your fancy fresh groceries all week, instead of just the first couple of days. Repeat after me: I will put down the takeout menu.
4.A productivity planner for ensuring even the biggest procrastinators get everything done in a reasonable amount of time. How? It has you write down your timing goals to keep you FOCUSED. No more: "Oh, was that presentation today....?!?!"
5.A styling tool organizer so your bathroom stays nice and mess-free — you know, like how you usually try to make it when mom comes to visit? Now it can be like that all👏 the 👏 time 👏. Plus, a little gold is always good for a small upgrade — IKEA shower curtain included.
6.A mini fabric steamer that'll keep you from showing up to work in a wrinkly blouse AND being late. The small design makes it easy to use, but it's powerful enough to have you out the door pronto. Guess who doesn't look like they dug their top out of the hamper this morning?
7.A metallic alarm clock, because big kids don't use their iPhones to wake up in the morning. A new day has begun, and it starts with a better ~ring~ than your phone's. Plus, it'll double as some chic decor!
8.A gel-infused memory foam mattress topper for upgrading your life from dorm-styled bedding. Adulting means needing a good night's sleep and this will p-r-o-v-i-d-e: it's infused with temperature-regulating gel to keep hot sleepers cool AND conforms to curves to relieve pressure points. Maybe you'll actually want to answer emails come morning now.
9.An Herbivore Botanicals pink clay cleansing bar so you can enjoy a seemingly luxurious skincare routine without the high-end price. Not only does it smell *amazing* (hello, citrus and floral), but it draws out toxins and clears acne. All in all, a nice break from whatever you last "borrowed" from your roommate's side of the medicine cabinet.
10.An infusion pitcher that'll impress the heck out of your guests when you present an option a whole lot fancier than tap water. Maybe you'll even put out coasters...who are you at this point?!
11.A set of organic wool dryer balls, because you're about to get soft on laundry day. Not only will they save you money (because they're less wasteful than dryer sheets), but they'll make your things feel and smell like heaven every darn day — aka much better than the usual laundromat outcome.
12.A pack of Quilted Northern ultra-cushy toilet paper to achieve the same level of *plush treatment* for your bum that you expect at your parent's house. It's time to bring that your own porcelain throne.
13.A sophisticated tote with lots (and lots) of handy compartments for a) finally achieving the whole organization thing and b) easily dressing up all your work attire. Who sits outside digging for their keys? Not us. Not anymore.
14.A set of non-slip velvet hangers so you can put an end to scanning the floor for *that* satin shirt amongst your shoes. Not to mention your closet will look 1,000 times better with this sleek design, as opposed to old plastic hangers.
15.A faux fur sheepskin throw that'll instantly update the chairs you've had since college into insta-worthy decor. Feel free to humblebrag while showing off your own living room.
16.A subscription to Winc, because this'll deliver your much-needed adult juice right to your door on a monthly basis. But this is a real step up from your grocery store discount wine: you'll get to cheaply explore international varieties from sparkling to pinot noir. All from the couch in your jammies!
17.And! A vacuum wine stopper for extending the life of open bottles — growing older means feeling like literal death after having two glasses of wine. Solution: saving some for later (it'll still be just as fresh!). #Adulthack.
18.A cloud-like alternative quilted comforter so your bedroom always looks bright and clean thanks to this simple white design (white decor = seemingly bigger room). More importantly, this'll make your bedtime routine feel *plush* as heck. Let us say ahhh together.
19.And! A collection of 300 thread count cotton sheets to drastically upgrade your bed game — we're talking wrinkle resistance and moisture-wicking technology (welcome, hot sleepers!). Just remember to *make* your bed come morning.
20.A set of porcelain ramekins that'll encourage you to channel your inner Ina and learn fancy dessert recipes to ~obviously~ show off to the world. Eating ice cream from the tub? Hmmm...wasn't us.
21.An undergarment drawer organizer, because you deserve to start your day by finding your favorite bra with 100% ease. Please put an end to throwing everything in the corner in a desperate attempt to find that one thing.
22.A bitter nail polish for *cutting out* nail biting. Our moms may have given up yelling at us, but it's still high time we drop the habit. Now you can actually get grown-up manis!
23.A chic blazer so you have something more polished than a cardigan to throw on when chilly at the office. We dress for RAISES here.
24.A cold brew maker that'll nix overspending at Starbucks every morning — look at you budget! It tastes the same, has the same amount of caffeine (priorities), and gives you spending money for fun things like traveling or....more food.
25.A charcoal air purifying bag, because we're outgrown the funky smell old sneakers bring. Considering how much rent we pay, our apartments should smell nothing but fresh.
26.A bottle of Fanola purple shampoo for not letting the fact that you don't want to shell out at an expensive salon prevent you from maintaining your hair. This + three to five minutes = pro-level hair right at your *fingertips*. And STILL no maxing out of the credit card.
27.A set of high-performing carbon steel knives so your cooking skills are always cutting edge. Never mind that we're pausing the Tasty app every two seconds. We're trying new recipes, that's what COUNTS.
28.A powerful electric toothbrush that'll not only make your bathroom routine feel more sophisticated, but put your dental hygiene up to ~speed~ with your dentist's expectations. Next year we might even try flossing.
29.A set of mesh laundry bags, because you'll feel so much more composed when your bras and underwear aren't fraying at the seams. These'll keep everything (including you) ~together~.
30.An over-the-sink dish drainer for encouraging you to put an end to the "soaking" process and start cleaning, already. It'll pay off when you have forks at the ready next time you eat — is that what they mean by meal prep?
31.A six-pack of seamless cotton underwear so you're less likely to run out of undies — no, 20+ year olds do NOT have to go commando in their leggings.
32.A set of cotton dish towels that'll stop you from using all those paper towels every time you need to dry something — these are more absorbent, save you money, and most importantly give even the tiniest of kitchens (hello, NYC) some fun color and style.
33.A makeup organizing case, because there's a place for all your brushes and let me tell you: it's not your counter. Keep your space clean and your morning routine coordinated. No more "WHERE IS MY FOUNDATION?!" five minutes before leaving.
34.A splurge-worthy Daniel Wellington watch for a timeless accessory that'll make every work, casual, whatever outfit instantly look more polished. Will you wear this every day? YEP. Is this a practical gift grownups should definitely treat themselves to? Double yep.
There's still a 99% chance we'll be in meetings like:
