    1. A powder blush palette you can use to create beautiful natural looks that'll transition nicely from day to night.

    Marquaysa Battle / BuzzFeed

    One of my coworkers, Marquaysa Battle, has this palette and is a big fan! Here's what she had to say:

    "So I'm all into makeup that helps me whip up a quick face without trying too hard. This blush palette helps me add a lil' flush to my face in just a couple of dabs. It's super buildable so you can go subtle the way I like to or get super glam with a deeper blush look. I also use this palette on my eyes and lips too. It's easy to use, the four colors can be layered to create a custom shade, and it lasts a LONG time. This will literally be the only blush you ever need. It's definitely one of my smartest cheap makeup grabs."

    Get it from e.l.f. Cosmetics for $8 (available in two styles)

    2. A trio of stands to make sure each and every one of your plant babies has a place of their own.

    Wayfair

    Promising review: "I love this piece. It is a perfect mid-century modern plant stand. I had been looking for months for something unique like this and finally found it on Wayfair. It’s a great price. If it were real marble it would be way more expensive. Easy assembly. I highly recommend and may purchase another for my daughter." —Kathy

    Get it from Novogratz on Wayfair for $83.99.

    3. Bananagrams – it'll *lit*erally bring a smile to any bookworm's face — it combines all the fun of crossword puzzles and Scrabble for a fast-paced game anyone who loves words will appreciate.

    BuzzFeed, Barnes and Noble

    Promising review: "This game is contagious. We have so much fun playing. You can play by yourself, with a small group or large group. Small enough to take with you anywhere you go. take it out to eat while waiting for food, take it camping play it at home. Whenever you play it you just can't stop. It is very similar to scrabble but a lot faster. Buy you'll love it." —Guest

    Get it from Barnes and Noble for $14.95.

    4. A bag of PrettyLitter made up of moisture- and odor-absorbing crystals that you won't need to scoop out of the box.

    Kat Angus / BuzzFeed, PrettyLitter

    One of the main claims PrettyLitter makes is that the crystals will change color if it detects a potentially harmful change in your cat's urine. BuzzFeed editor Kat Angus tested this out firsthand and was really surprised by the results:

    "I was shocked when I went to stir up the litter box and saw that Moe's urine had caused the crystals to change color. To be safe, I immediately scheduled an appointment with his vet. The vet was skeptical that anything was wrong with Moe, considering he was still eating and drinking normally, and I hadn't noticed any other changes in his behavior. But, just to be safe, the vet agreed to do a urine test. When the results came back, they showed that Moe did have blood in his urine, indicating that he had an infection!!! So the vet was able to prescribe my cat medication before Moe's condition got any worse."

    5. A pack of scrunchies you can use as both an accessory and a way to keep your hair from sticking to the back of your sweaty neck.

    Anthropologie

    Promising review: "These scrunches are so cute and well made. They are just the right size, not too big and not too small. I liked them so much, I went back and bought a set for a friend." — allioop22

    Get a set of six from Anthropologie for $7.20.

    6. Clump-free mascara made with Hairdensyl to help support lash growth — it'll have people asking if you recently got eyelash extensions. Joke's on them!

    Sephora

    Promising review: "Yaaaaaaas!!!! This is one of my favorite mascaras, it's crazy. I get such dramatic, big, bushy beautiful lashes with this stuff. I like the brush, seems to really help with volume for me. No problems with flakes or raccoon eyes (being fair skinned that's not a good look so if I get either of these it's a deal breaker). And being a contacts wearer I typically never have a problem with eye irritation. It's basically a magical mascara." —stacy2455

    Get it from Sephora for $25.

    7. Glossier Boy Brow to help you finally get the unruly caterpillar-like creatures above your eyes in check.

    Glossier

    My coworker AnaMaria Glavan is passionate about this product. Here's what she had to say:

    "Believe the hype: this magic bottle is proof that not all heroes wear capes. The creamy formula, which comes in blond, black, clear, and brown (which is what I used!), goes on smoothly and doesn’t require a lot of product to do the job. I used the wand to brush baby hairs in the beginning/middle of my brow upwards, and then brushed the longer, toddler-like hairs at the end of my eyebrows, sideways. And one coat was more than enough! Boy Brow does what exactly what the Glossier brand claims to do; it gives me a filled-in eyebrow that doesn’t look filled in. The finish looks natural, which is exactly what I wanted — my facial caterpillars have never looked better."

    Get it from Glossier for $16 (available in four shades).

    8. A universal nail polish bottle handle from Olive and June you'll want if you love doing your own nails but are forever struggling to do your opposite hand as beautifully as your dominant one.

    Olive and June

    I've been doing my own nails for a long, long time. It always seemed smarter to me to spend money on a bottle of polish I can keep instead of a manicure that only lasts a week. It's a skill that took a while to work on but, luckily, for at-home manicurists like myself The Poppy has made doing my nails a lot less challenging. It pops right onto any bottle of nail polish (not just Olive and June colors) and provides you with a stronger grip and a more accurate swipe.

    Get it from Olive and June or Target for $16.

    9. A pair of Suavs made from recycled plastic bottles that'll make a nice eco-friendly addition to your ever-growing shoe collection.

    BuzzFeed / Harper Hendrickson

    My colleague Harper Hendrickson is a big fan of these sneaks. Here's their review:

    "I’ve been having a difficult time with shoes lately, due to my feet growing and shoe size changing a little since starting HRT. I recently tried Suavs high-top shoes in Timber, hoping that they would be stretchy enough to fit me till I get through this awkward shoe phase! I was not disappointed, these fit true to size, they are nice and stretchy, and they are some of the comfiest shoes I’ve ever worn. I liked them way more than I anticipated I would, so much so that I didn’t take them off for a week when I first got them! My favorite thing about Suavs are how easy they are to slip on and off, yet they are durable enough to get me through hectic days and long walks with my pup. The few minutes I save in the morning slipping these on when I’m stressed and in a rush really makes a difference. I also love that these are made from recycled water bottles!"

    Get them from Suavs for $110 (available in sizes 8–14 and three colors).

    10. La Roche-Posay gel cleanser to assist in conquering your arch nemesis: acne. It's made of a salicylic acid that'll target blackheads and whiteheads directly. See ya, pesky pimples.

    larocheposayusa / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: "This is one of the best cleansers I’ve ever used for my oily complexion. It deep cleans and leaves one with a refreshed complexion that isn’t overly dried. It’s also a great value because a little goes a long way and a bottle seemingly lasts forever!" —Dermstore Customer

    Get it from Dermstore for $14.99+ (available in two sizes).

    11. Bath & Bodyworks' Sleep foam bath infused with black chamomile (it also doubles as body wash) for a truly relaxing soak in the tub before bed.

    BuzzFeed / Heather Braga, Bath & Body Works

    I'm obsessed with this bubble bath! It was designed to calm the mind and body, as it is infused with chamomile oil and bergamot oil, and honestly just smells fantastic. I'm also very into healing crystals, astrology, and all that jazz, so the subtle depiction of stars and the moon on the label really drew me in. The body wash itself even has a mystical, potion-like look to it. It looks so cool on my bathroom counter that I already know I'll have to restock when I run out. I'll usually only add a single squeeze-worth of it into my running bath water and it foams up really nicely — but not too much so that you're being overwhelmed by bubbles. If you're in need of a new bubble bath or just want to upgrade your own *serenity situation* I'd definitely check this product out.

    Get it from Bath & Body Works for $13.50.

    12. A Volupsa candle in a gorgeous jar to make your home smell divine while also adding a pretty piece of decor to the room.

    Anthropologie

    I would sell my soul for a French Cade Lavender Volupsa candle — no joke.

    Promising review: "I got this jar candle in the Goji Tarocco Orange scent, and I just love everything about it. The jar is beautiful and festive-looking, and the scent is just so pleasant. I am definitely going back for more. These jars make such a beautiful gift for any occasion. I highly recommend them!" —jurodgo

    Get it from Anthropologie for $30 (available in eight scents).

    13. A murumuru and rose body butter from Love Beauty and Planet to leave your skin silky, smooth, and refreshed with floral packaging that'll transform your tub into a garden escape.

    lovebeautyandplanet / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: "I used to use the Body Shop body butters but after trying this product, I'm a convert. The texture is so rich and well, BUTTERY, less like a lotion or cream. Yet it soaks into the skin immediately without leaving a greasy residue." —Mimi Pishu

    Get them from Ulta for $11.99.

    14. An ever-popular Instant Pot with so many uses you'll need to take a deep breath before deciding what to make with it first.

    Williams Sonoma

    The Duo Plus replaces nine common kitchen appliances. It can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, and egg cooker, with the ability to sauté, steam, warm, sterilize... and oh, it makes cakes too. Read all about why the Instant Pot is changing how we cook in our full review of the Instant Pot.

    Promising Review: "Magnificent appliance! I use it every day. I've been a convert for a few years, now. I still have my 6-quart Duo and I still love it. But I moved up to take advantage of the larger space, for racks of rib, larger chickens and even small, whole turkeys. It heats faster, the pan doesn't spin during browning, I LOVE the autolock, because that was my one bad spot---I'd forget to set it to sealing. Now? It does it for me! A larger pot does have it's issues, but with the 6 standing by? I never have to compromise. I am definitely a two Instant Pot household." —Laura

    Get it from Williams Sonoma for $139.95.

    15. An Echelon Smart Bike to make you feel like you're in the midst of an intense workout class without the added pressure of *actually* being around people.

    echelon.fit / Via instagram.com, Echelon

    Promising review: "I love my Echelon bike. It gives me the ability to stay in shape for the spring and summer seasons when I usually ride outdoors. Having the option to hop on the bike and jam out to music and get a workout in with various amounts of timed sessions. The capability of having a competitive atmosphere with the leaderboard, other riders, and instructors pushing me to achieve more is nothing short of amazing. I would recommend these bikes and affordable plans to anyone who likes to get a little more out of a workout. The options are endless, whether your looking to ride, strength train, stretch or do yoga. The total experience has given me a boost to continue to working toward a stronger and better person all year around. Thank you Echelon!" —Michael K

    Get it from Echelon for $839.98+ (available with a variety of subscription plans).

    16. A Billie razor subscription that'll add a lil' pop of color to your bathroom wall while also helping you get a silky smooth shave that'll have you telling everyone in your life "feel how soft my legs are!"

    Billie, billie / Via instagram.com

    Billie is a fantastic subscription service that lets you choose how often you need your razor refills then delivers them right to your doorstep. I recently tried my first Billie razor and, OMG, my legs have never been smoother. They seriously have a handle style for everyone — including their new "Glow" razor that, you guessed it, glows in the dark! My coworker Rachel Dunkel is also a BIG fan of Billie razors and their other products. Here's what she had to say:

    "For the last five years or so, I haven't cared that much about shaving. I'd let my legs and pits grow into a (beautiful!) forest, but whenever I craved a nice, smooth shave and picked up a razor from the drugstore, I'd end up disappointed. Even with more expensive razor brands, I'd still be prickly and end up regretting ever shaving in the first place. I have never, ever had that problem with Billie. Ever since trying their razors and shave cream, I've actually *wanted* to keep up with shaving. You get a ridiculously smooth result on the first go, even if your hair is super grown out. But most importantly, it STAYS that way for way longer than with other brands. With Billie, it actually feels worth the time and money to shave, something that I could never say about any other razor."

    Get it from Billie for $9+ (available in six colors).

    17. An oversized hoodie from Aerie you can kick back and relax in while *finally* binge-watching Schitt's Creek.

    Aerie

    I personally have this pullover (and the matching joggers) and it has become my go-to while working from home. It's suuuuper soft and isn't too heavy, so it helps keep my body at the ideal temperature. I have zero complaints and will probs order the other colors after writing this post.

    Promising review: "This sweater is absolutely perfect. Lightweight but so warm and cozy I love the coloring too! You need this!" —Cass

    Get it from Aerie for $29.97 (available in sizes XS–L and four colors)

    18. A shower curtain complete with pockets you can use to upgrade your bathroom's storage space without doing something wild like installing a new vanity or cabinets.

    Bed Bath and Beyond

    Promising review: "I like the shower curtain because it has pockets that I can put shower items in so they don't fall on my feet in the shower! I have used this type of shower curtain for many years." —Marcy63

    Get it from Bed Bath and Beyond for $19.99.

    19. A Triple Threat Color Stick from Thrive Causemetics that'll probably become the most important thing in your makeup bag — it can be used on your lips, face, and body!

    Thrive Causemetics

    For every product purchased Thrive Causemetics donates to help a woman *thrive*.

    Promising review: "This is honestly the best product. I use it on my eyes and lips and cheeks and it literally doesn't budge as eyeshadow. By the end of a 14-hour day it's still bright and beautiful. I mean it LASTS. I haven't found an eyeshadow that isn't gone by the end of the day or smudge. And it gives a beautiful glow to cheeks. WORTH IT!!" —Marcella C.

    Get it from Thrive Causemetics for $36 (available in four shades).

    20. A snuggly Grinch-inspired sweatshirt with a quote you've probably now seen all over Tik Tok in reference to all of our routines now that we're staying indoors for long periods of time.

    Femfetti / Etsy

    I have a handful of sweatshirts from Femfetti and have yet to be disappointed. They're oversized (unisex sizing), snuggly, and sassy. This one really speaks to me because it's *basically* a summary of all of our lives right now! AND you can rock it from now through the holiday season. A Grinch vibe is a good vibe, IMO.

    Get it from Femfetti on Etsy for $32.25+ (available in unisex sizes XS–3XL).

    21. Waterproof Naturalizer boots with a supportive footbed so you can hike through your neighborhood with style and comfort.

    BuzzFeed / Maitland Quitmeyer

    My colleague Maitland Quitmeyer has and loves these babies! Here's what she had to say:

    "I wore them on several days on a recent trip to Rome — including for full days where I walked 17,000 steps on everything from cobblestones to slippery museum marble floors to underground catacombs — and they kept my feet comfy and ache-free. I've worn them in the rain and my tootsies have remained totally dry. The arch support is ::chef's kiss:: — after a few days of wearing no-support fashionable sneakers, these were a very welcome break, and my feet stopped aching as soon as I put these on. And they're cute! The lug boot style is on-trend and goes with everything from leggings and a sweater to a fancier midi dress to tone it down a bit. What more could you ask for?"

    Get them from Nordstrom for $174.95 (available in sizes 6.5–11).

    22. A pastel AirPods hanging case to help you keep track of where your beloved headphones are at all times.

    Anthropologie

    Promising review: "This minimalist case is chic, is of high quality, and the price is on point. I've gotten lots of compliments on it and the hoop is INDISPENSABLE. I hang it on anything I'm carrying." —lilprisci

    Get it from Anthropologie for $9 (available in four colors).

    23. A customizable cosmetic organizer that'll motivate you to *finally* get your beauty products and bathroom counter in order.

    BuzzFeed / Samantha Tomaszewski

    On of my colleagues Samantha Tomaszewski looooves this organizer:

    "I got this great one from the Container Store and I'm never going back. I love how you can buy as many different compartments as you want, to mix and match to create your perfect makeup storage device! I spent several hours (lol) deciding what the best combination of compartments would be for the amount of items and the limited counter space I have. The one I landed on ended up being perfect for my space and it fit everything I use on a daily basis — and more. Now, I also feel like I'm going to be more likely to use certain beauty products I forgot about or never could find. And it just LOOKS so much better, a win/win/win!"

    Mix and match the stackable system; get compartments from The Container Store for $18.99+ (available in five configurations).

    24. A monogram block letter necklace you'll be able to pair with all of your other accessories. Just think how cute it'll look layered with your other dainty necklaces.

    Anthropologie

    Promising review: "This necklace is neutral enough to wear every day, but personal enough to make it special. It is truly beautiful and well made. I just received it and have already gotten several compliments on it! I intend to buy more and give them as gifts!" —Kaylaj15

    Get it from Anthropologie for $38 (available in 26 styles).

    25. Watermelon Pink Juice Oil-Free moisturizer you can count on to smell fantastic and leave your face feeling refreshed after the first application — it also doesn't hurt that the color of the lotion is ~pretty in pink~.

    Sephora

    I've been using this product for the last month and it has quickly become one of my favorites. It's a brightening and lightweight moisturizer that really works! I like to use it in the morning for a fresh start to my day. The pretty pink hue and glass bottle also just looks gorgeous on my counter — no complaints!

    Promising review: "Amazing! I haven’t been able to use a moisturizer for a couple of years without a breakout until I tried this. I had very dry, sensitive skin a few years ago, and then all of a sudden I had oily, acne-prone skin. I started using this because my skin was suffering without moisturizer and I was hopeful. It has not caused one breakout! It has helped heal the breakouts I had when I started using the product. This sits well under makeup, and causes no excess oil throughout the day." —Sephora Customer

    Get it from Sephora for $39.

    26. A table lamp with a speaker as the base to wow all of your guests the next time you have a dinner party. They'll all be wondering "where is the music coming from?"

    IKEA

    Promising review: "I bought this lamp/speaker the first day it hit the store shelves. The sound is amazing! It's such a great use of space as it is also a lamp. It is the perfect balance between functional design and technology. I highly recommend this product." —CraftyChick063

    Get it from IKEA for $179.

    Read our full review on the lamp/Sonos speaker here.

    27. A punny bath mat that'll make you smile every time you hop in or out of the shower.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "So cute! It's exactly how the picture shows it, fuzzy and easy to clean. Plus it makes me happy every time I see it." —naughtalie

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $39.

    28. Tarte shape tape contour concealer you've likely been eyeing for months and will be so happy to finally test out.

    Tarte

    Promising review: "Best concealer till time!! Just love the consistency. Can be worn without powder to give a more dewy look! Love the travel size. Medium to high coverage! Would definitely recommend!" —Mehwish K.

    Get it from Tarte for $10 (available in 30 shades).

    29. A Sunrise Service face mask from Loops Beauty that'll help you start your day off on the right foot.

    Loops Beauty / Via instagram.com, Loops Beauty

    I recently gave this mask a go and was super impressed. Usually sheet masks slip and slide off of my face and I have to recline in an awkward position for 10 minutes — but no this one from Loops! It stays in place and includes great ingredients (pumpkin extract, white flower, and baobab oil) that left my face feeling super soft and hydrated. Oh, and the packaging is super cute.

    Get a five-pack from Loops Beauty for $30.

    30. A Le Creuset Signature Round Dutch Oven you'll be able to pass down to your children — truly worth the investment, especially if you've been looking to kick things up a notch in the kitchen.

    lecreuset / Via instagram.com

    Promising review: "Love, love, love it! It goes from burner to oven and makes perfect dishes every time — even when the cook has limited talent! It's heavy but no more so than my other cast-iron cookware." —Lynn M

    Get it from Sur la Table for $249.95+ (available in 11 colors).

    31. And a pair of earrings showcasing the iconic chapter stars from (carefully) recycled Harry Potter novels. True fans of the novels will think you're a gifting *wizard*.

    gabigabiheyshop / Etsy

    Promising review: "My girlfriend absolutely loved the earrings. She has received many compliments from friends and coworkers as well. They are pretty unique and a bit more subtle than a lot of the Harry Potter jewelry out there. Only fans in the know would get it, otherwise they just look like nice earrings." —Kevin Haas

    Get them from gabigabiheyshop on Etsy for $16.99.
