    I have one of these beauties and can tell you it's worth the money. My old TV was clunky whereas this one is slim, chic, and features stunning graphics. The first thing I did was put on Frozen 2 in 4K and, WOW, what a difference it shockingly made. Go ahead, treat yo' self.

It's been a little over a month and so far has held up well through a very rainy few weeks. Very comfy — the fabric is thick and cushion-y, and wipes clean easily.

    thesims / Via instagram.com, The Sims / EA Games

    To know The Sims is to love The Sims. You can spend hours (days? weeks?) building your perfect home before even thinking about interacting with your character. I'm a long-time fan of this game and, honestly, can't think of a better program to play when quarantined for a long period of time. The best part about this game is you can truly make it whatever you want! Want to make your Sim have 100 babies? Sure, why not? Or maybe you want to create Barbie and level up every single career and skill option. The Sim world is your oyster.

Because I use it all the time! I bake a lot so it gets used weekly, sometimes multiple times a day. I love the whip option when I am making my icing or when I am beating the eggs to a froth for my lemon curd. I love the speed options and that you can lock the head. When I am using the knead option while making bread I lock the head so it doesn't pop up. I ordered this online through Target and had it delivered in two days with free shipping." —Momontherun

    Get it from Target for $299.99 (originally $379.99).
