Pumpkin spice tea, filled with cinnamon, ginger, clove and black tea leaves that *might* make you consider making your morning latte at home instead.
Tea Forte, Heather Braga / BuzzFeed
If you're not ready for pumpkin spice season, please keep that to yourself and let me HAVE THIS. Anyways, I received a sample box of Tea Forte's Pumpkin Spice Tea and immediately wanted to crack it open and create my own version of a PSL at home. The tea was simple to brew thanks to its pyramid-shaped bag (no messy loose leaves). I added some
frothed milk and a dash of cinnamon and was happily surprised by how close it tasted to the real thing! You can find me hunkering down with my favorite mug filled with this drink for all of ~spooky szn~.

You won't need to do much convincing to get your roomie to play with you when you let them know you've acquired classic games like
Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine, and Super Mario Galaxy. If you're anything like me and my friends, you and your pals will remember adventuring alongside Mario in these games from the past. My personal fave is Super Mario Galaxy (I loved my Nintendo Wii) but my husband is adamant we start with Sunshine. There's something for everyone in this set!

zippered sleeve to keep all of those pesky wires and plugs under control and out of your way so when you finally get around to hanging your fabulous new TV on the wall it won't look like a hot mess.
Between my phone charger, headphone wires, and keyboard wire, I'm constantly getting tangled in my web of wires at my desk. I'll be ordering a pack of these ASAP!
Promising review: "Finally someone thought of a genius solution to organizing cables without having to unplug all wires and fishing them through an organizer. I used this cord management system for my entertainment unit as well as my workstation. It's easy to use, just bunch everything together and zip the sleeve around it. It's that easy." — TypeCast2000

trio of cacti that'll be *very* difficult to kill, so you can welcome them into your life with open arms (just, uh, maybe don't touch them directly).
I've gotten many plants from Bloomscape and they have yet to disappoint ! I recently received their
monstera plant (I named her Pocahontas) and couldn't believe how easy it was to remove safely from the box and set up flawlessly. With this awesome service you can order plants directly to your home. They arrive perfectly packaged, undamaged, and ready to become your companion. I'd recommend this trio of cacti as a first step into plant parenthood — they're easy to care for and won't take up too much space!

Promising review: "We have a boxer mix pup who is wild and stubborn. I have bought her countless toys, bones, etc. She never really holds interest in any. Enter the squirrel log. I won't say she fell in love and plays for hours or anything extreme but she plays with it for a few mins here and there and goes back to it frequently. She generally destroys everything but instead nuzzles and loves on these little squirrels. I find them all over the house. We put them back in the log and she immediately gets them out and carries them around again. This dog is generally unimpressed by all dog toys but actually plays with this one so this pup mama is impressed. For size reference we ordered the XL. The pup is currently 6 months, 35 lbs, roughly knee-height. It is a good size for her." — Jen

all-natural tile and tub cleaner you can count on to effectively remove mold, mildew, and rust — just think of *how* satisfying your "before" and "after" photos will be.
Promising review: "I have an old shower/bathtub. I tried name brand shower cleaners and bleach to try and clean the soap scum off the tiles and tub. I had no luck and I would cough and get sick because of how strong the smell was. I thought I would try this to save my lungs. I sprayed my entire shower and left it for about 15 minutes. I came back and rinsed off the walls and they were shiny! I've never had such a clean shower. The smell is amazing and subtle. All I smell is tea tree and it didn't affect me at all. The price is also a good deal since the bottle is pretty large. It came with the sprayer separate and the bottle sealed so it wouldn't leak in the box. I highly recommend this." — Amber Erwin

hybrid mattress to basically provide you with *two* mattresses instead of one — with a single flip you can go from an extra firm feel to a softer one without splurging on a new bed.
My in-laws had been trying to decide where to buy their next mattress from when I came across Idle's hybrid mattress. It's special because you can customize it for a specific feel on each side. Tired of sleeping on a too-soft mattress? Flip it over and enjoy a more firm one! It's pretty cool — the shipping was incredible, as was watching the bed-in-a-box puff out into a massive, sturdy mattress in seconds. My in-laws are loving their new mattress and have zero complaints!
Promising review: "My husband wanted a flippable mattress, i wanted a mattress with pocketed coils, we both wanted a double sided firm mattress! The Idle Hybrid checked off all the boxes and more! The most comfortable mattress and sleep we ever had! Thank you Idle!" — Terri

Promising review: "Last night I was reborn. What is the cause of this renewed zest for life, you might ask? It was the use of the Rubbermaid Reveal Power Scrubber on my shower grout. It elevated a simple baking soda-and-water solution to alchemical proportions. My pink-tiled shower, the one that came with my scummy apartment, the one that never looks clean no matter how many hours of backbreaking labor I put in, now looks bright, clean, and full of promise. An otherwise disgusting and dated purely utilitarian part of my home is now art. TL;DR: This this is absolutely incredible." — Amazon Customer

A set of matching
sweatpants and a sweatshirt you'll likely add to your rotation of comfortable but cute work from home outfits this fall when it *finally* cools down.

personalized cookie cake for anyone in your life who might be in need of a sweet surprise with a twist.
Heather Braga / BuzzFeed
This woman-owned and operated company came to life when two sisters were quarantined at their parents' home. They started making these delicious homemade cookie cakes with a twist — their hilarious messaging. I was lucky enough to receive a sample and, honestly, wasn't sure what to put on it! I knew I wanted to make my husband laugh, so I went with this Kanye West quote as we've both been a bit of a distraction to the other while WFH together (we're both in creative fields).
The cookie cakes are made fresh, top quality ingredients with no added preservatives. Mine arrived without any cracking and tasted super fresh for days. I'd totally order another one as a surprise for anyone in my life who needs a pick-me-up!

Look at that foam go!
Promising review: "It seems counterintuitive to put a little packet down your garbage disposal to clean it, but this does actually seem to work, at least for getting out weird smells that baking soda and vinegar don't really touch. I scrub the sink down first, especially around the garbage disposal area, rinse it down, and then just follow the directions on the package. I have used it with single, large-size sinks and with double sinks — only difference is that the double sink will have blue cleaning foam rise up the drain, which you rinse away when the disposal sounds clear again. I have tried the foaming cleaner in a can, but unfortunately it stopped coming out of the can about 10% of the way through. Went back to this tried-and-true." — KS

Fabric bandages with playful patterns on them that'll make you forget about the fact you just got an insanely painful paper cut while opening junk mail.
I have these bandages and love them — they feel so much stronger than the standard ones I've used in the past and don't budge once you apply them. My colleague
Elizabeth Lilly has and enjoys them as well. She said:
"This brand is fun, super flexible, and doesn't budge during hand-washing. (Take it from someone who just stepped on a candleholder a few nights ago and has one on her foot.) Yes I'm fine and yes it hurt like hell. I've been a big fan of these since they came on the market. I've tried the monster pack, along with the
floral pack (the large bandages in that pack are what I've been using on my foot, btw). Y'all don't even realize how many bandages I go through given my clumsy nature! So, uh, I've been around the block with such first-aid offerings."

Primal Kitchen's Organic Ketchup, a must-have for anyone who has been looking to cut down on sugar but would never give up their favorite condiment (ahem, me).
I'm one of those people who could eat ketchup with everything — mac 'n' cheese, grilled cheese, hot dogs (despite my dad saying that's childish), whatever! However, typical ketchup is packed with sugar. I figured it was time for me to try and cut back on that extra intake and try a more health alternative. Enter: Primal Kitchen's ketchup. It's the only organic/unsweetened version of ketchup I've tried that actually tastes good! Even kids would give this a go — seriously. They also have a spicy version if you want to take your condiment game to the next level ;).

insulated mug to fill with your go-to caffeinated beverage and take along with you for a leisurely stroll in the crisp morning air without fretting over how hot it'll stay — doesn't that sound lovely?
camelbak / Via
I can personally vouch for this Camelbak mug — I have one and have used it to bring my favorite tea along when I head over to my sister's apartment to watch
90 Day Fiancé. It stays hot for SO long it's almost *too* good! I can also see taking this with me on early fall morning walks. I love that it has a handle, making it even easier to hold onto. Promising review: "I bought four of these mugs so that we would always have one while the other is in the dishwasher. We really like the rubber spot on the bottom to avoid slipping and staining. No matter how hot the coffee is inside, the outside and the handle are comfortable to touch! The fit of the lid is tight, as is the slide mechanism on top." — Lynnie

"Running with boobs can be a struggle that only a really good sports bra can alleviate.
I love this Under Armour bra because it provides full coverage, solid support, and it's very comfortable. I personally don't like wearing padded sports bras, so this one is perfect for me.

We always fight our loaves of banana bread to get them baked in the center, without burning the outside. This pan is PERFECT!!! One banana bread recipe fills the 12 spaces just right. We love having 12 baby loaves that are baked perfectly, with lots of good edges. Can't wait to try some other foods in this fabulous pan." — Grammy of four

Apple AirPod Pro earbuds so you can happily listen to the latest Taylor Swift album without your roomies or family members complaining "do we haaaave to hear 'Cardigan' agaaaain?"
...and might I recommend the too-cute
AirPod Pro cases from Rifle Paper while you're at it? My fellow editor, Emma Lord may have just convinced me to upgrade from my old AirPods:
"I have a pair of these, and they're not playing around. Once they're securely in your ear, you can toggle the headphones between noise-cancelling and regular sound, depending on your situation.
I've been working from home, and the noise-cancelling is so effective that I can work next to a window where my neighbor is doing heavy construction and I don't hear anything louder than a faint buzzing. It's quieter than if I'd just plugged my ears with my own fingers. I'm also a runner, and these don't budge when you're sweating, which is nice. It's also handy that these toggle out of noise-cancellation mode, because I feel better being able to hear traffic and other people around me when I'm out and about. The TL;DR: I love these so much I have zero interest in owning another pair of headphones for as long as I live."

Reusable makeup cloths you'll pat yourself on the back for buying when you see how incredible they are at taking off stubborn matte lipsticks and mascara.
Jasmin Suknanan is a big fan of this product. She shared:
"I initially bought this set because I was tired of disposable wipes that would dry out my skin and make me break out, and I wanted a cheaper alternative to the Magic Makeup Eraser. These towels actually take EVERYTHING off. My 24-hour foundation, my setting powder, my eyeliner, mascara, AND lipstick — gone in a couple of swipes! And, I began breaking out less after I started using these cloths with just water. I even packed these when I traveled and it made for easy makeup removal at the end of the day — I just hung it out to dry on the rack in our hotel bathroom. Each towel can last a few months as long as you wash them regularly."
