    This electric log actually gives off heat and looks so realistic (even down to the ember bed), you'll forget you're not huddling around a real fire when it's freezing outside.

    Promising review: "Wow! For an electric fireplace, this thing is pretty slick. I have done a ton of research because I am really picky about the flame looking as realistic as possible. The appearance of the flames comes from a projection that reflects off of whatever surface is behind the unit. The flames are adjustable mechanically, but can further be adjusted to your liking by moving the unit closer to or farther away from the reflective surface behind it. I feel like this flame is fairly realistic, especially as compared to most other electric fireplaces on the market." —dguzi

    Get it from Amazon for $129.99.

    7. A macrame swing that'll be your go-to reading nook or WFH spot. Now you can finally put that boring bedroom corner to use!

    Amazon / Via,

    Promising review: "Bought this for my 6-year-old's room makeover. She loves it and curls up in it most days. She piles in the pillows and blankets to make the ropes cozy. I had my dad, who built houses for a living, install it for me to make sure it was secure but I think as long as you use a stud finder and have a good screw driver, anyone can do this." —KrisSquared

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99.

    8. A faux sheepskin because your feet will touch a soft surface (and not a cold hardwood floor) when you wake up. Did we mention that this doubles up as a cozy piece of decor for your bed or couch?

    Promising review: "These candles smell so good I wish I could eat them. If there's a way to put them on auto ship, I'll happily sign up, because I'm never buying from my usual places ever again! Our whole house smells like happy elves live here baking cookies all day. Do yourself a favor and buy one or five." —Etsy Customer

    Get it from PrettyHonest on Etsy for $10.21 (available in seven scents).

    10. Fizzy aromatherapy bath bombs because you can treat yourself to DIY spa time and get moisturized skin. These relaxing treats contain essential oils, like lavender, orange, and peppermint, and smell so good when dropped in a tub.,

    Promising review: "I have been using bath bombs for years. I've used cheap brands, drugstore brands, luxury brands (Lush, YL) and more. This box gives all bath bombs I've tried a run for the money! The packaging was super cute and totally giftable. I was really impressed at the quality of the bath bomb itself too (I used Heal tonight) and I love that this uses natural essential oils. During this COVID-19 outbreak, I have had a lot of stress and anxiety and have enjoyed a bath nearly every night for the past week. This bomb gave me the most serene experience and they are HUGE! At least double the size of ones I've used before. Comparable to the size of Lush bombs. I will definitely purchase this box again when I run out and honestly it's a great price at a little more than $2 a piece. You really can't beat it!" —Heather H

    Promising review: "I was honestly skeptical using this and that it would work, but I've been using it every day now and I can definitely notice a difference in my overall mood. I work from home and live in New England, so in the winter I can feel unmotivated and sluggish due to the lack of sunlight. I've noticed a change as soon as I use it! It's also a very aesthetically pleasing shape and style. Love it!" —Jody Seng

    Amazon / Via

    Promising review: "I've tried several different tea infusers from Amazon trying to find one fine enough that very small loose teas don't leak out. Finally, the search has ended. This is the one. This infuser is not a mesh screen, but a small canister. It holds a good amount of tea, stays together, and is very easy to clean. Best of all, no matter which tea I use, there are absolutely *no bits* escaping out into my tea. They're a little larger than they look, which is actually a good thing." —Amazon Customer

    Promising review: "Recently renovated my home with teal being the 'splash of color' chosen throughout. These pillows are a real find: I ordered the smaller ones for my loveseat to compliment larger abstract-colored pillows. The color is vibrant and pillows look more expensive than they are. You won't be disappointed!" —ron recina

    Promising review: "If you like your warm beverages really hot and you generally are at a single location, this is an absolute must-have. Previously, I'd have to microwave my coffee two to five times before I finished it. Not only is this generally frustrating, it wastes a lot of time going back and forth. Now, I have a pleasantly warm cup of coffee on my desk all day long. I could go for it being 5 to 10 degrees hotter on the hottest setting, but it's close enough to perfect that I'm not at all disappointed." —Tim C.

    Promising review: "This is my first time using a soft foot rest versus a hard plastic one, and I love it! Now that I am working from home full time, I was desperate for some ergonomic help, and this foot rest suited my needs perfectly. I especially love the material, it feels so delightful on bare feet! Having the option to remove the bottom cushion allows for flexibility with my chair height." —Kim K.
