    1. Saie's Glowy Super Gel, a lightweight luminizer perfect for days when you wanna brighten your complexion in the most minimal way possible. You can also mix it with foundation or a tinted SPF!


    "Saie’s glowy super gel! It help me look awake and dewy for my 7th zoom meeting of the day. Plus, it doesn’t have any harsh ingredients to aggravate the maskne!" —ashleym43859b22e

    Promising review: "I am so happy to have found this company. I have super sensitive skin so am always afraid to try new makeup but hands down this has been positive. I especially love this for days when I am not putting on a full face of makeup and just want something to brighten things up a bit. Highly recommend!" —Amanda M.

    Get it from Saie for $70 (available in two shades).

    "Burt's Bees Berry Agua Fresca lip balm. My lips get really chapped in the winter, but not anymore. Plus, it tastes and smells really nice." —vcox0498

    Promising review: "Burt's Bees lip balms are the best, truly! it actually moistures my lips, leaving them soft and plump for a long time. Unlike other lip balms, it does not require constant reapplication. And this Berry Agua Fresca one smells really good!" —BeautyLover1212

    Get it from Walmart for $3.27.

    3. An affordable espresso machine, because the only coffee runs you wanna go on in 2021 are to your kitchen and back to your bed.

    "My cappuccino machine!! They are not cheap, but the prices do vary from $75 up, but I have saved about $900 during the pandemic making my own lattes! Plus, the coffee shops near me have been closed from time to time and now I don't have to leave the house or rely in a store for my favorite treat of the day. It's so worth it." —kittenbags

    Promising review: "Purchased this as a gift for my husband. Making espresso at home has saved us a lot of money and is smaller than our regular coffee maker, which I love. This maker is easy to use and after almost two months it still works great. (Compared to reviews of cheaper brands) Foaming has a bit of a learning curve but either experiment or Google. I find doing a swirling motion works better than the up & down that is recommended but everyone is going to have different techniques that work for them. I highly recommend buying this maker if you, like me, cannot fathom paying $200+." —Michelle

    Get it from Amazon for $68.99.

    4. An ultra-cozy crew top and track pants set that might just be the softest thing you ever put on your body.

    Model wearing the crewneck sweater and track pants in light grey

    "I really have no idea what the set is made of. Clouds? Dreams? Happiness? Whatever it is, it is SO soft. I actually audibly said, 'Wow, I think this is the softest thing I put on my body' the first time I put these on, even though I was in my room by myself. Not only is this set super soft, but it's pretty stylish too. I've worn it around the house all day to work and felt super put together. It's been a rough year for everyone, and a soft sweatsuit will not change that, but this set just might bring you a little comfort and happiness, and that's all that we need at this moment." —Abby Kass

    Get the set from Knix: $55 (for the top; available in women's sizes S-XXL and in white and grey) and $55 (for the bottoms; available in women's sizes S-XXL and in white and grey).

    5. A pair of leggings that'll fit like a glove and pass the all-important "see through" test.

    "I'm obsessed with these leggings from Amazon! They are super flattering, soft, comfy, and they're ankle length which is great for those of us who aren't tall supermodels!" —beilinzia

    Promising review: "...I love the material and how they feel! These are my second pair I've bought. I love that they come up above my navel... The exciting thing is that these have pockets too! Very rarely do I find a good pair of leggings that includes pockets! Woohoo! I could live in these! Jus sayin'. Oh and... they are NOT see through!! Another win! Buy these!! Highly recommended!" —YARNutopia

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99+ (available in sizes XS-XL and 22 colors).

    6. And these leggings with hidden pockets and a high waistband perfect for workouts, binge-watching, and everything in between.

    reviewer wearing the Espidoo leggings in red

    "Espidoo leggings on Amazon...I cannot recommend them often enough. I have definitely inspired about 20 purchases from others since this summer, and personally already own them in five colors. Obsessed doesn't even begin to describe my love for these perfect pants 😍" —beyondskindeep1

    Promising review: "These are by far my favorite brand of leggings. I have a few pairs of leggings that I spent close to $70 on that are nowhere near as high quality as this brand. These leggings are true to fit, non-see-through, super soft, don't ride up, and the pockets keep my phone secure while running. They are made of high quality material but they do get a bit warm so I start to sweat quickly in them. But that is the only minor downside. They are very flattering and I don't have to keep pushing them down since they don't ride up. The price is extremely reasonable and I would never buy any other brand of leggings." —Amy S

    Get them from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in sizes XS-XXL and 33 colors).

    7. A pair of Aviator Nation sweatpants guaranteed to take your WFH comfort to a level you didn't think was possible.

    "I’m really obsessed with Aviator Nation sweatpants. Even though they’re pretty pricey, during a time like this they’re definitely worth it. They’re beyond comfortable and surprisingly durable, not to mention the fact they come in so many colors and styles. As someone who sits for three-quarters of the day, I find they were definitely worth it!" —cpo15

    Get them from Aviator Nation for $156+ (available in women's sizes XS-XL and men's sizes S-XXL).

    8. Dry Drops from Olive and June that'll help keep your polish smudge- and chip-free all day long.

    Olive and June

    "Olive and June makes the best products to give yourself a mani /pedi at home. They make a full mani kit, pedi kit, and have tons of colors to choose from. Their dry drops claim to dry your nails in about 80 seconds and YES they do work! I do my nails about once a week since I started using their products, although their nail polish is great and lasts much longer than that." —paitay21

    Promising review: "Not gonna lie... I was a little skeptical about these dry drops, but they truly do work! Three coats of polish and the dry drops and I can go about my day without needing to worry about my polish smudging. I’ll be purchasing more for sure!" —Lisa C.

    Get it from Olive and June for $10.

    9. All Chai'd Up, a popular blend from The Chai Box, infused with ginger, clove, cinnamon, cardamom, and fennel — sounds ~tea-riffic~!

    "I’m obsessed with The Chai Box’s all chai’d up. A perfect blend of sweet/spicy authentic chai. Plus her daily stories of making chai is so meditative." —brandia4e65fcc94

    Get it from The Chai Box for $12.

    10. A gentle cleansing balm designed to melt away your makeup and impurities while keeping skin hydrated, too.

    Versed Skin

    "I love my Versed Day Dissolve cleansing balm! It was definitely my best 2020 purchase. It melts into my skin and cleanses while it removes makeup. It doesn’t make my skin feel stripped, and I wake up the next morning with extremely soft and glowy skin! 10/10 recommend." —ceciliaboyer7

    Get it from Versed Skin for $17.99.

    11. An Instant Pot, great for making restaurant-quality meals in a fraction of the time.,

    "I’m still obsessed with my Instant Pot. I do everything from ribs, chile verde, beans, butter chicken, stock, beef and mushroom stew.... it’s really opened our minds to foods we would never have made before. I don’t use my oven most of the year due to how hot it is here but the Instant Pot helps me do all those fun meals that we miss during the summer!" —Tempemom

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in four sizes).

    "Sleepy body wash from Lush! It’s the best thing to calm myself after the chaos that is our life currently." —morganalxslade

    Promising review: "After a stressful day, I take a hot shower with this shower gel, follow it up with Sleepy lotion, and spritz some Twilight body spray on. I have pretty stubborn insomnia and these products don't put me to sleep, but they do a very good job of relaxing me. I only need an amount the size of a nickel on my loofah to get a rich luxurious lather. Love this stuff!" —The Mad Hatter

    Get it from Lush for $9.95+ (available in four sizes).

    13. Slip silk scrunchies that won't annoyingly pull your hair and leave you with a big' ol headache at the end of the day.

    model with a Slip silk scrunchie in their hair

    "Slip Silk Scrunchies!! They keep my hair healthy and safe from breakage and don’t pull my so tight where I have a headache!" —johnsonandcamille

    Promising review: "Really good quality. They don’t cause as much strain on my hair as lots of other hair ties. I have suuuuper fine hair so they work well for ponytails but not braids because they bend it at the end." —themim

    Get a six-pack from Sephora for $39 (available in two color sets).

    14. Ugg's classic ultra mini booties because your feet deserve to be just as warm and cozy as the rest of your body while you're stuck inside all day.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, ugg / Via

    "I recently got these Ugg minis and have been wearing them as my "work shoes" now that I WFH full time. They're the perfect mix between a slipper and an actual shoe, so I can continue to wear my comfiest clothes to "the office" (my kitchen table) but also feel like I've somewhat transitioned into work mode for the day. They're super soft, as all Uggs are, and honestly just make me happy! They are true-to-size so no worries about sizing up or down." —Heather Braga

    Get them from Zappos for $139.95 (available in sizes 5–12 and four colors).

    15. A pair of tie-dye Crocs to add a pop of color to your closet full of black.

    pair of tie-dye Crocs

    "Good luck to anyone who tries to take my tie-dye crocs away from me." —Emma McAnaw

    Promising review: "I bought a matching pair for my partner and me as a surprise and she loved it! This is personally my first pair but this is her fifth pair. If it weren't for her I would have never known Crocs could be so comfy. Whether home or outdoors running errands, not only is the feel unique but the color/pattern really stands out. I've received a lot of compliments as she has too. I look forward to purchasing my next pair of Crocs!" —Kelly

    Get them from Crocs for $44.99 (available in women's sizes 6-12 and men's sizes 4-13).

    16. A pair of chukka boots that are durable enough for a construction site, yet stylish enough for date night.

    "Been breaking in a pair of these Hari Mari chukka boots. They're super comfy!" —John Mihaly

    Promising review: "My husband hates most shoes, particularly boots, therefore I was a bit nervous about purchasing these but he absolutely loves them! They look fantastic and he’s raved about how comfortable they are from day one!" —Magdalena E.

    Get it from Hari Mari for $220 (available in men's sizes 8-13 and three colors).

    17. A cica cream moisturizer made with retinol, peptides, and niacinamide to help heal and soothe irritated skin while keeping it hydrated all day long.

    jar and box of Meebak cica cream age-repair moisturizer

    "I am obsessed with this face cream! I assumed this cream was so much more expensive than $20 because it feels amazing and genuinely makes my skin softer and brighter." —Emma McAnaw

    Promising review: "I care a lot about the stickiness of moisturizers and the smell, and this moisturizer had a very subtle fragrance which was just right for me, because I do not like strong scents in facial products. I liked the fact that it wasn't too sticky so that it could be worn on a daily basis, even during the day. The texture is dense yet it absorbed quickly and I could see visible results in terms of moisturizing my skin. Overall, I loved it!" —Yon J.

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97.

    18. Athena Club's All Day Deo that might just make you a natural-deo convert.

    BuzzFeed / Katy Herman

    "The first thing I noticed when I got my sample of this magic stuff in the mail was the sleek and pretty packaging that feels all Insta-worthy on my countertop. Then, the smell — I really don't like perfume-y, overpowering scents, but this was so mild and beautiful and natural-smelling (I picked scent No. 2, a rose, sage, vanilla, lime and cedarwood blend). But most importantly, it heckin' WORKED. And it achieves all that with really just a swipe — no need to apply a ton. Between the pretty packaging, the scent, and the effectiveness, I actually look forward to putting on this plant-based, cruelty-free goodness in the morning (and therefore am less likely to forget)." —Katy Herman

    Get it from Athena Club for $11.

    19. An ultra-cuddly throw blanket perfect for movie-watching, nap taking, and straight-up hibernating.

    "I have this blanket and haven't moved from under it since I got it. It's silky soft on the bottom and thickly furry on top. I can't even begin to describe how perfectly snuggly this thing is." —Rebecca O'Connell

    Promising review: "I LOVE this throw!! It is truly one of the softest blankets I’ve ever felt. The quality of the faux fur is SO good and plush (better than competitor options). And the weight of the blanket itself is really substantial! It’s so comforting and exceeded my expectations. Please treat yourself or a loved one to one; you won’t regret it! I got it in the ochre yellow color which is a beautiful, rich color perfect to brighten up a room." —bla43

    Get it from Anthropologie for $98 (available in five colors).

    20. CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream that'll leave your skin soft as butter and help you look a lil' less tired when you wake up in the morning.

    box of CeraVe skin renewing night cream

    "I've been using it every nice under my eyes and on other dry spots on my face, and it works so well. The back of my hands also get very dry in the winter that a red rash shows up, so I've been putting a little bit on them before I go to bed. My hands are SO soft and smooth now and the rash is completely gone. It even made a couple scratches from my family's puppy disappear. Truly magic." —Abby Kass

    Get it from Amazon for $13.98.

    21. A resurfacing mask for anyone who hasn't had a facial in a while and is looking for that post-appointment glow.

    Versed Skin

    "I've been using this stuff for a few months and it makes my skin feel baby smooth. I always time it so I keep it on my face for the two minutes spent brushing my teeth before bed at night. In case you're wondering, it's OK for people with sensitive skin or rosacea (I have both!). The not-set-yet-Jello consistency makes it super cool and easy to smooth on, then rinse off." —Elizabeth Lily

    Get it from Versed Skin for $17.99.

    22. And a beanie for all the Mouseketeers out there, since Mickey ears don't really offer much in the way of keeping you warm.
