    1. A bathtub tray to immediately make you feel like you're about to take a bubble bath in a 5-star spa. You can bring your favorite book, your laptop to watch a flick, or just take a little snooze.

    Psst! The sides extend! This means it can definitely fit your bathtub!

    Promising review: "When I placed my order for this tray I looked at the pics but did not realize how really cool this piece is. The ability to change the size is great but I just love the different trays that are removable as well as the ability to put my phone and a Kindle in 'safe' areas of the tray. I found a perfect place for my TV remote should I want to watch TV and not read. I just got it and used it last night but it appears to be well made, balanced and offers versatility for the things you may want at your fingertips when taking a luxurious bath!" —SindiMcG

    Get it from Amazon for $37.97+ (available in seven colors).

    2. And a supportive bath pillow for anyone who would rather take a relaxing hot bath on a Friday night than go outside and *shudders* socialize. You have to admit your bathroom would look so much more inviting and cozy with this in it.

    Amazon

    This waterproof pillow has seven suction cups so you don't have to worry about it falling off after you found the perfect spot to put it. 

    Promising review: "My husband bought this for me because I LOVE taking baths; it's a nice way to relax and unwind after a long day, but I've recently had some health problems which has caused me to lose a lot of weight and taking baths has become excruciating. Due to the lack of extra cushion back there now, lying back on the porcelain tub was extremely painful on my spine/bones, and I had resigned to the fact that I wouldn't be taking baths anymore. But, GOOD NEWS, this pillow is a dream come true. I wish I had always had this pillow. It's soooo comfortable! I could almost nap in the tub (but don't!)." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in three sizes and seven colors).

    3. A set of fairy lights so you can create a super cozy ambience in your home, making your space a relaxing haven to come back to after a long day of being awesome.

    It even comes with eight different light modes, including a *twinkle* mode, with a controller attached to the lights so you can easily switch between them. If you need another one for your space, do not fret! You can connect up to five to each other!

    Promising review: "I bought this for my daughter’s dorm room, and it was perfect for taking up great wall space. She loves it! She uses these lights normally at night instead of her main light. My daughter says she gets lots of compliments. They were really easy to hang with Command hooks and are very lightweight." —Randa W.

    Get them from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in five colors). 

    4. An ice cream pint cozy that'll make eating your favorite frozen dessert *that* much warmer. 🥶

    I have been using this cover every time I whip out one of my ice cream pints and it has made it so much more enjoyable to consume! I love that my hands stay warm *and* dry and it also doesn't get condensation all over the couch or table when I place it down. They come in a bunch of cute colors, but I went with a neutral beige.

    Get it from Berkshire Yarn Works on Etsy for $20+ (available in two sizes and 10 colors).

    5. A rainfall showerhead because after a long day of work, don't you deserve to feel like you stepped into a luxurious spa when you open your bathroom door? The answer is yes. Yes you do.

    Promising review: "I was able to install this item rather easily, my old head was harder to get off than this head was to install. The wrench that is provided is adequate along with the use of your hands; no other wrench is needed. I would just make sure you do not tighten very much. No pipe tape was needed with my installation; there was none included with my purchase. I love the adjustable arm, the flow of the water, and how relaxing it feels after a rough day to stand underneath and enjoy the water flow over your body." —Ozatlarge

    Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in three sizes and four colors).

    6. A mystical jigsaw puzzle that's perfect for anyone who loves doing puzzles at home, but also likes something with just a little bit of ✨ magic ✨. What do I mean? Well, there's a fun surprise when you get to the last puzzle piece. 👀

    Comes with 1,000 pieces.

    Promising review: "Just got this puzzle for something to do at home over the holidays. Seriously ... never seen a puzzle quite like this! It’s very impressive and exceeded my expectations already. The packaging is beautiful inside and out. Everything about it shouts quality. I particularly liked the envelopes inside for the puzzle pieces and mystery. Heavyweight and substantial. The one holding the 1,000 puzzle pieces stays closed with Velcro! How cool! And the secret mystery envelope has a cool string loop tie. It makes you remember you can’t open it until the puzzle is done. The whole vibe of The Mystic Maze is quality and fun and it looks like a challenging puzzle. Looking forward to getting started on this. Certainly a good 'stay home' fun activity. Highly recommend!" —Kyle Fletcher

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    7. A fluffy round rug because nothing makes you want to stay home like a super inviting shaggy rug that's basically ~begging~ for you to sink your toes into it. Do it. Sink the toes.

    Promising review: "Looks really cute, it’s really soft and easy to clean. I vacuumed the rug a few times and it still looks like brand new!" —Miriam and Natan Beuca

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in three sizes and 18 colors). 

    8. Fizzy aromatherapy bath bombs to add a little extra oomph to your already relaxing baths. Simply drop one in when you're ready and watch it fizz up while making your water so soft and silky.

    Promising review: "I have been using bath bombs for years. I've used cheap brands, drugstore brands, luxury brands (Lush, YL) and more. This box gives all bath bombs I've tried a run for their money! The packaging was super cute and totally giftable. I was really impressed at the quality of the bath bomb itself, too (I used Heal tonight) and I love that this uses natural essential oils. During this COVID-19 outbreak, I have had a lot of stress and anxiety and have enjoyed a bath nearly every night for the past week. This bomb gave me the most serene experience and they are HUGE! At least double the size of ones I've used before. Comparable to the size of Lush bombs. I will definitely purchase this box again when I run out and honestly it's a great price at a little more than $2 a piece. You really can't beat it!" —Heather H

    9. A Nintendo Switch so you can start a new cozy at-home hobby, like playing Stardew Valley all night long because you just *have* to make your farm look cute before bed.

    This version of the switch allows you to disconnect the controllers from the main console and play with them separately *or* connect them to a controller. This means you can play your Switch using your TV!

    Also, if you hate the red and blue colors (like I do), I bought these amazing skins from Sticky Bunny!

    Promising review: "Finally I could get a flawless Switch console in my hands, this one is perfect, battery life, even the joysticks feels more premium now. I super ultra buster mega recommend this one, best Switch version ever." —Joao Mota

    Get it from Amazon for $299+ (available in three colors and with memory cards).

    10. An entertaining The Nightmare Before Christmas Cross-Stitch Kit to keep your hands busy as you watch your favorite holiday movies, like this one, instead of going out.

    The kit includes a 32-page mini book with simple cross-stitching instructions and four easy patterns (a Jack Skellington, two of Jack and Sally, and one of Zero the dog), three pieces of 4"x4" cotton Aida cloth, a 3" embroidery hoop in which to stitch and display designs, two tapestry needles, and four skeins of embroidery thread.

    Promising review: "This was a perfect gift for my daughter who loves the movie. She just started doing cross-stitch so this is a great one to teach her counted cross-stitch. It came with everything she needed." —Monica

    Get it from Amazon for $7.44.

    11. An extra large blanket for when you absolutely *hate* sharing and running out of fabric to keep yourself cozy on the couch. This blanket is a whopping 10 FEET by 10 FEET. Like what?!

    Big Blanket Co

    I originally had this blanket in brown and my sister in law loved it so much she kept it to herself. So, I ended up getting it again in the Camel color and I am truly obsessed. It really is absolutely enormous! It covers both me and my husband with extra blanket in between. It is *SO* freaking cozy and soft. Also, because there's so much fabric, it's kind of heavy, which is great as a weighted blanket! By the way, one of our cats threw up on it, and I was super stressed about putting it in the washer, but it fit perfectly and washed with no problem! 

    Big Blanket Co is a small business that specializes in, you guessed it, selling the world's biggest blanket!

    Promising review: "I got this for my husband who is always cold and always complains about our small throw blankets. When I say this thing can easily, and with blanket to spare, cover my entire sprawled out family of 5, that’s no exaggeration! It’s also SUPER soft and cozy. One thing to note is it is VERY heavy — as in I have trouble picking it all up and folding it is a challenge. Lol but I hardly fold it anyway and being that large and cozy it can’t be light, so I don’t have a problem with it. 10/10 would recommend and such a great gift!" —Andrea Gray

    Get it from Amazon for $169+ (available in 16 colors).

    12. A macrame swing to add some extra seating to your home, but like, in the coziest way possible. I can already picture all three of my cats fighting for this space.

    Promising review: "Bought this for my 6-year-old's room makeover. She loves it and curls up in it most days. She piles in the pillows and blankets to make the ropes cozy. I had my dad, who built houses for a living, install it for me to make sure it was secure but I think as long as you use a stud finder and have a good screw driver, anyone can do this." —KrisSquared

    Get it from Amazon for $62.99.

    13. A mermaid blanket so you can live your childhood mermaid dreams you've had since that one pool party when everyone refused to play "Mermaids" with you so you were left to play by yourself. This isn't a personal anecdote. *sobs* Just...go be cozy in your mermaid tail.

    It also comes with a mermaid-shaped necklace and a pretty storage bag.

    Promising review: "I love this blanket! It's very soft and very fun, especially after a long day at work. I also loved that it came with a mermaid necklace and a pretty bag." —Jill Aragon

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in two sizes and 11 colors).

    14. A cotton knit duvet cover you'll find incredibly difficult to not want to spend your entire day in because of how beautiful and cozy it looks. Your bedroom would be the first image when you search "bedroom goals" on Pinterest.

    And if you're looking for a great duvet to fill this cover, here's a hypoallergenic option that reviewers love! 

    Promising review: "Our bed feels so cozy, love this duvet cover! The hype is real. It fits our duvet perfectly (I’ve purchased others that were way too big and looked ridiculous). It is so soft and the color is beautiful, we got the pumpkin color for fall. I think I’ll order the black green color for winter!" —jgal

    Get it from Amazon for $63.01+ (available in three sizes and 20 colors).

    15. A welcoming doormat to set the expectations you have of yourself after work before you even walk inside.

    Black Butterfly Signs is a small business based in Denver, Colorado that specializes in door mats, signs, and home decor.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love our new doormat! It’s so well made and exactly what I was looking for!" —RyLee Gross

    Get it from Black Butterfly Signs on Etsy for $16.10+ (originally $23+; available in five sizes).

    16. A mushroom chair you'll quickly designate as your go-to spot for reading books or taking midday naps.

    Promising review: "Absolutely love this chair! The cushion is very comfortable — great for sinking in to read, watch TV, play on the Wii, or even nap if you are shorter like me. My nieces and nephew climbed all over it and it didn't break, very sturdy. It even spins completely which was a happy surprise. Worth the money!" —Samantha

    Get it from Amazon for $183.99+ (available in a set of two).

    17. A pack of beautiful Cleverfy Aromatherapy Shower Steamers if you don't have the luxury of owning a bath, but still want that "bath bomb" experience.

    The variety pack includes lavender, watermelon, grapefruit, menthol and eucalyptus, vanilla and sweet orange, and peppermint.

    Promising review: "My goddaughter is due to give birth soon. And while everyone is gifting gifts for her soon-to-arrive son, I decided she needed a little something for herself. I wanted her to have something to rejuvenate her in a long shower after a long day with a newborn. First-time moms need a little pampering too. My goddaughter smelled the scent from the unopened box and LOVED them." —Gidget007

    Get the pack of six from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in larger packs).

    18. A cozy terry cloth bathrobe because nothing says "Yeah, I'm not going out tonight" like your friends showing up and you're wearing this.

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this robe! It really is plush and luxurious. Hubby and I wear this at night before getting into our swim spa and use it to dry off after getting out. It's even plusher than our bath towels. It is thicker, so if you are looking for a robe to wear during a warm day, this is not it." —Jocelyn Shade

    Get it from Amazon for $24.94+ (available in women's sizes M–XL and in two colors).

    19. A bed canopy to make your bed feel like your own ethereal sanctuary to read your favorite book or take the world's best nap. Bonus points if you add string lights for extra coziness.

    This polyester mesh canopy is large enough for queen- and king-size mattresses. Installation is easy if you have a four-poster bed, however, it comes with four hanging hooks and anchors to install from the ceiling too. Also, it does *not* come with the string lights!

    Promising review: "This was super easy to install, and much bigger than I expected, but that's not a bad thing. It makes my bed feel so nice and cozy! I used some large wired ribbon to keep the ends tied together. My cats have even batted at it a few times and haven't ripped it so it's pretty durable!" —Haley

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (also available in black).

    20. A subscription to Book of the Month, a service where you can pick one (you can also add two extra books each month!) book every month from their curated list. It's like having your own little book club without having to leave your house, which is, like, the goal.

    I have been using BOTM for almost two years now and it's still my absolute favorite subscription. I love getting the email at the end of the month that it's time to pick a new book! I have discovered so many amazing novels *and* authors I probably never would have had I not gotten this subscription. I also LOVE that I can see all the books I have on the app and even rate them!
