Plus, it protects your desk, covers up any unsightly scratches, and the material is comfy enough to rest your arms and 'bows on., Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this thing way more than I thought I would! I've always hated how little surface area mousepads had, but I had no idea desk pads existed until I was randomly browsing through Amazon. I purchased the pink one, and it is the perfect addition to my white/pink home office! It works perfectly as a mousepad, but I love that I now have a place to put hot/cold drinks without damaging the desk. I purchased the smallest size, which is absolutely large enough for the corner of my desk where I work. It came rolled up in a tube, but it unrolled flat, no curled edges whatsoever! Would definitely recommend!!!" —Rigashi

    Get it from Amazon for $8.49+ (available in three sizes and 12 colors).

    Promising review: "These brass cable organizers are beautiful and high quality.

Each colorful container is small and compact enough to individually slip into your bag — so you have one less thing to think about on your next errand-filled day.

    Promising review: "This is the most convenient pill organizer I've purchased. I love it so much that I've purchased it again. The separate round containers ("daily rounds") divided for morning and evening doses can be carried independently, a huge advantage over all-in-one pill organizers. The daily rounds are clearly identified by day, time of day, and are color-coded. They are clear so you can easily see whether and which meds have been taken, a great thing for caregivers and the person taking the medication. I highly recommend this thoughtfully designed pill organizer." —Pee

    BTW! Some reviewers mention popping this in the fridge/freezer for a few mins and rolling it around their heads and eyes to help alleviate tension held in that area — which sounds like a truly *amazing* at-home facial to me!

    Promising review: "I’ve only been using it for the last three days but it’s so relaxing and beneficial. I can already tell a difference in my skin and for the price this is so worth it.

    The pink mug warmer

    Promising review: "Cute mug warmer kept my coffee warm all day, I sometimes can not finish the mug during work due to interruptions. I like that it has three different temperature settings. After turning it off, it will continue to blink red for several minutes warning you that it is still hot. But be assured that it will stop blinking and the unit is off. Would recommend to anyone needing to keep their coffee/tea warm." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $20.39+ (available in five colors).

    And this comes in so many shades you'll easily find one to match the interior of any of your bags!

    Promising review: "When you spend a LOT of money on a good bag, the last thing you need is a pen to leak or a dirty mark to ruin the lining. I couldn’t believe my luck when I discovered the EXACT product I was thinking of right here. I have the Louis Vuitton neverfull MM with a light pink lining I wanted to protect, and right here a pink liner fits perfectly. You can remove the middle section if you wish, to hold more books, folder etc or keep it in (it has Velcro strips at each end to hold it in place). I love that everything has a place - including a zipped compartment and the key strap lanyard, and of course if you want to change bags you can just lift it out and place all those essentials right into another. Highly recommend this item." —BritGirlUSA

    Four Edison bulbs lit up

    Promising review: "Well, I've only just received them but I'll tell you, I'm already in love! I paired it with this industrial/steampunk type lamp to improve my working-from-home conditions and it illuminates my keyboard just enough. It's just the glow I was looking for and perfect for the look I had in mind. I've never reviewed anything before, but felt compelled. I'm pretty new to ordering things online and so I'm still kind of hesitant, especially when considering ordering something as fragile as light bulbs : ).

    Promising review: "This pan is EVERYTHING! I went from making pasta in the basket to steaming broccoli in it and then finishing my meal in there. Then I forgot about cleaning it because I’m lazy — and the non-stick cleaned up so easily. The sponge they include is incredible, I do all my dishes with it now.

Opens the same way after it’s sealed! Super easy to use, has a magnet on the back for sticking it to a refrigerator, and is a lifesaver for my cabinet full of half-closed, mostly stale, rolled up bags. Truly incredible." —barncat96

The star shape is an excellent design as well, the points of the star help them contour and grip to the varying angles of your face no matter where you place them." —Kelsey S.

    Reviewer's photo of the fabric grey desk chair with quilted back

    Promising review: "I searched on Amazon for hours looking for the perfect home-office chair that wouldn't break the bank.

    Promising review: "LOVE!!! This is exactly what we wanted — a cup that truly keeps cold drinks cold, with ice. It lasts 24 hours+. We have tried, at friends recommendations, Tervis, Yeti, and generic store brands and they —even Yeti!!! —were fails compared to this Simple Modern. The description states it has a copper lining. The copper must be the extra-special insulation that the others lack. Everything about it is outstanding: the color, the size, fit, feel, no spills or troubles, and ICE Cold retention, (most important feature). We haven't tried it on hot but since it's so trustworthy in cold, we're certain it keeps hot HOT, too." Doreen Bowler

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99+ (available in 25 colors).

    24. A multifunctional lift top coffee table designed to solve storage problems, WFH issues, and even interior design qualms. I think a decor piece that looks *this* good, and has the ability to instantly upgrade your at-home life, deserves to be in your cart, like, now.

    Promising review: "This coffee table is beautiful, and in my small apartment it is fantastic to have so much extra storage. The out-of-sight storage is my favorite feature of it and keeps our space clear. The rustic brown color is gorgeous and I love the black accents. The laminate on the boards is also great because it is, as advertised, waterproof. I don't have to worry about coasters and can just put coffee mugs on the table." —Vince

    Promising review: "I love this dress! Short comfy sleeves and knee length make it easy to wear. I love having pockets, and these are deep and well positioned. They offer so many different prints that it was hard to choose, but I love the blue mandala print I chose. I did order a size larger than usual, so it flows and moves well, but fits perfectly in the bust and shoulder areas. I’m thinking I might need another one, and I recommend this dress for casual, fun summer outings or daily wear." —mystickdance

    Promising review: "Not only is this functional, it is SO pretty. It gives my bathroom a totally serene feel. It's easy to install — there IS a film on the back that must be removed. On a corner, use a piece of tape on the front and one on the back, and pull apart until the film comes off. Note: The film is clear; the rainbow effect comes from light being refracted by the film." —Stephanie Graham

They were easy to install and came with a cut out to tape on your wall to see where you need to drill the holes. Nice. They are larger than I expected. I hadn't measured because I didn't really care about the size, but was a surprised how large they are. If they were smaller, the clothing probably wouldn't stay on the hook.

    39. Thinx period briefs you can actually wear on those moderate flow days when you want something a little more freeing (that also looks adorable). It's up to you whether you pair 'em with a tampon or not, but if anything, they provide some added reassurance when you're not so sure what your monthly mate is gonna do.

    These hold about three tampons worth of period blood on their own, and can be rinsed out in the sink before being washed and dried in a cycle with the rest of your clothes. Plus they come with a 60-day trial ~period~ (sorry, had to) and free returns!

    Promising review: "These are my favorite pair of Thinx. They're cute comfy & definitely support me best during my bleed. They feel just like regular underwear." —Kristin S.

    Get it from Thinx for $34 (available in sizes XXS-3XL and five colors).

    40. A hydrating lip balm that cleverly changes color with your skin's pH level. Taking the guesswork out of finding the perfect shade to match your complexion? Done. Thanks to this Insta-worthy lippy that even has a flower living inside of it 👀., Amazon

    Promising review: "I loved this color changing balm!!!!!!! It’s been my favorite purchase so far. Saw this girl on TikTok use it and I had to try it. It’s super compact and the color it gives out is so pretty and fits well with everyone’s skin tone. It’s moisturizing and it’s sheer. I’m buying more instead of getting my lips tattooed." —Stephany

    Get it from Amazon for $16 (available in sizes and colors).

    41. A Silk eye mask, which is the only sleep aid you're going to need if you're after some *true* beauty rest. It has a cooling quality and just looks and feels so good!

    I can report that since I received this as a gift last Christmas, I have not taken it off. OK, OK, I begrudgingly slip it off every morning, but, honestly, I cannot wait to put it back on at night. The buttery soft fabric is no joke and the luxurious marble design might be my favorite part about it. I don't wake up with any creases on my face — which has been a consistent issue I've experienced with all other eye coverings. It's also an added bonus that this doesn't tug on my hair during the night. If I were to make one suggestion, though, it would be to choose a darker color if your eyes are *hyper-sensitive* to daylight in the morning like mine are, as this lighter colorway does let ~some~ light in on super bright, sunny days. Otherwise, I would highly recommend this to anyone who wants to rest their eyes on a pillowy soft, silky cushion.

    Promising review: "I was so hesitant on spending this much on a sleep mask but so glad I did because it was worth every penny. I sleep so much better and my eyes look less tired in the morning. I love this mask!" —plantbasedmom

    Get it from Amazon for $50 (available in 21 colors).

    42. A stylish travel belt to secure your belongings in place now that you can actually venture out on a weekend getaway. No more slippin' and slidin' when you just want an easy (and now totally chic) way to transport your totes and book bags around.


    Cincha was created by a couple based out of Oakland, California who believe traveling in style should also be secure. They've been making the chic travel belt since 2019.

    Promising review: "This is the item I never realized I'd always needed! Bonus points: I had at least 10 different people stop me on the way to my flight to compliment my Cincha." —Lauren

    Get it from Cincha for $35+ (available in 16 colors).

    43. A convenient cold brew maker that I don't think I would have gotten through the work-from-home year without. Because having freshly brewed coffee ready and waiting for me every morning on tap has saved me time (and my paycheck). Plus, it doesn't look half bad sat on a shelf of leftovers!

    You can brew up to one GALLON of cold brew in this *and* it stays fresh for up to two weeks!

    Promising review: "Makes great cold brew coffee. I like that I can make a lot at one time. The filter is top notch, no grounds get into the water at all, and the filter and jar are easy to clean. The spout is super easy to use. This is heavy duty glass. The price is right. It does take 24 hours to brew, so you need patience. There's no instructions on how to brew cold brew, I learned on Tik Tok of all places, and then it's a matter of trial and error, and personal taste/preference. However it is VERY easy. I haven't had a cup of hot coffee since I bought this, I love it so much!" —Holly Dohner

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in two sizes).

    44. A Tushy bidet that'll feel like a visit to the waterpark for your bum! We are here for anything that creates less TP waste, looks sleek (this comes in a platinum and bamboo style), and freshens up our backsides so we don't have to.


    This bathroom must-have doesn't require electricity or any additional plumbing, and can be temperature controlled.

    Promising review: "I absolutely love my Tushy Classic! It’s super easy to install. It’s the first time I’ve ever felt SO CLEAN. This is one of the best purchases I’ve made in my life. I decided to go ahead and order more as gifts for my loved ones! Thank you Tushy, you da bum-dot-com! ;)" —Aimee B.

    Get it from Tushy for $99 (originally $129; available in three styles).

    45. A sleek foldable desk lamp if your home office is... how you say... reminiscent of a dungeon. This takes up the *least* amount of space anywhere you put it and provides a great source of light so you can actually see the work in front of you. (And it ensures you won't look like you're calling in from an underground bunker on your next Zoom call.),

    This LED lamp has a unique combination of five color modes and seven brightness levels — as well as a functional USB charging port to keep your phone at a full charge.

    Promising review: "I purchased this lamp to add a little light in my office and it did a great job. It lets you adjust the brightness and the color temperature. It was a perfect solution for my needs. And then the pandemic hit. Suddenly, I packed my stuff and moved it home. My workflow turned to Zoom and I noticed when you didn't have good lighting, it made you look sick or like a creature of the night- all shadows and fuzziness. But low and behold, I had this light and when angled towards me, suddenly I had good lighting! It's been my go-to for meetings ever since. LOVE it! Highly recommend it for any video conferencing. Also highly useful as a desk lamp for traditional use." —J.C.

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in four colors).

    46. A classy customizable dry erase calendar you can prop up on your wall so the whole fam can keep track of their to-dos throughout the month. So long, ugly whiteboards and paper calendars, this reusable solution will now make a fabulous addition to our home office décor.
