    2. A lavender-infused eye mask that just may have you kissing stress headaches goodbye — relaxation, here we come!


    Promising review: "I run eight miles a day in the afternoon when the air quality is at its worst around rush hour, and often get headaches. This kaya eye mask does its job. It helps me with my headaches naturally, and it fits perfectly. Love the lavender smell that allows me to relax and re-energize. I recommend this mask and will buy one for my mom’s birthday coming up in a few weeks." ⁠—Rene Gomez

    3. A super-soft and shaggy throw blanket to ensure you and your fur baby always have a ready-to-go snuggle nest to crawl into at home.


    Promising review: "Un-freaking-believable! My family fights over this blanket. It's like being wrapped in a silky, feathery, warm cloud! It's even soft on both sides. I've been told to buy more so my family will stop fighting. It's simply like chicken noodle soup for your body." —Melinda Deas

    4. A set of faux wick candles with a built-in timer so you can finally enjoy near snooze-time ambiance without having to get out of bed to turn these babes off.


    These have a timer so you can set them to come on when you get home, and auto-shut off once you're asleep!

    Promising review: "I ADORE these candles. Five years ago I ended up living with several cats. At that point, I stopped burning candles (for everyone's safety). I missed the warm glow of candles. A couple of years ago I came across these lovely, wax, flameless candles WITH timer. I have them scattered throughout my house on random bookshelves, in large houseplants, bathroom counter, kitchen counter, etc. and they all pop on just after dusk (via the timer). They take AA batteries (I buy them on sale at Costco). Around the holidays we put one in each window. It's an effortless way to make your home feel a little bit warmer and cozier every single night!" —Aaron

    10. A comfy memory foam body pillow worthy of investing in. It's designed to reduce muscle tension and keep you as cozy as possible! / Via Amazon

    Promising review: "​Since I bought this amazing pillow few weeks ago, I've been leaning on it in my bed in front of the TV, elevating my legs over it after staying on my feet for hours at work, sleeping on my side and hugging it with my arms and legs, or rolling over it. It's way more comfortable than any other pillow — it supports not only my back, but my whole body, reduces tension in​ hips and shoulders, relaxes all muscles, and I sleep better throughout the night and feel more rested in the morning. Overall, this is very comfortable body pillow — soft and breathable and keeps me cool during summer nights; firm, but not flat nor bulky. It's a perfect hugging size even for my queen size bed, and it's machine washable with a removable zippered cover for easy care." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

    12. A set of blackout curtains to keep the sun out of your bedroom while you sleep in, or set your room up for movie-theater level darkness.

    Promising review: "Best blackout curtains ever for the price. I've shopped all over and these are truly what they are advertised. I didn't think I would need blackouts, but I work nights and sleep till noon and these are absolutely perfect. The color is a rich navy which are difficult to find in store. Trust me when I say, I went everywhere: Lowes, Home Depot & Home Goods, Tuesday morning, Ross, TJ Maxx, Walmart, Target. No place had them in this color for this price. I love, love, love, Amazon Prime because I wasn't sure if these were going to work out, but they are above and beyond what I expected." —Josie Holdridge

    Promising review: "I’ve been wanting to get a projector for some time now, but was having a hard time deciding on one. I’m glad that I decided on this one! The price point is great, the unit comes with cables, an adjustable stand, and a remote, and the setup is easy. I hooked it up to my phone and was able to view live sporting events that I was watching on my phone! After the game was over, I hooked it up to a DVD player and my kids watched Frozen and were able to operate the machine themselves. They went crazy when we aimed it at the ceiling while laying on the floor to watch!" —Liz Kara

It spent a year doing daily duty at my daughter's college dorm, has been taken on several vacations so I could brew my morning coffee on the road, and is now a daily fixture at my office where I brew two cups a day at work. Everything works as it is supposed to — I love that I can bring my favorite ground coffee to make it fresh at work for only pennies a cup. Small, lightweight, easy to travel with, and works! What else can you ask for?" —M. Sullivan
