    1. These pretty, twinkly string lights that'll immediately make your dark, bland room glow with charm.

    Promising review: "What a great find! Combined with sheer curtains, it changed the look of our dark bedroom completely and was very easy to hang (took me around 15 minutes.) It looks PERFECT! I agree with the other buyers about the plug cord being short, but we were already using an extension cable so we don't mind." —palindromes

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    2. A cute velvet pillow cover you can use as a ~fancy-looking~ accent pillow on your bed. All your friends will low-key think you might've been a room stylist in another life.


    BTW, since these are just pillowcases, you'll need to either buy a pillow insert or use one you already have.

    Promising review: "What a pleasant surprise! The pillow covers are stunning! The fabric is soft with the lovely sheen of good velvet. The color is rich, the construction is excellent, and the pompoms are the perfect finishing touch." —nanalk

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in seven sizes and in 20 colors).

    3. And these satin pillowcases that'll not only feel really smooth and luxurious to sleep on, but will also reduce friction against your hair, making it appear smoother.


    Promising review: "I was originally looking for silk pillowcases but decided to give these a try because they were a better price. I am not disappointed! I have seen a noticeable difference in my hair in the mornings and overall they are so smooth and comfortable to sleep on. I’ve washed them several times and haven’t seen a difference in the quality. I would buy again." —Kate

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99 (available in three sizes and in 16 colors).

    4. A faux fur rug so soft you'll feel like you're walking on a ~cloud~ when you wake up in the morning.


    Promising review: "It’s actually better than I expected. It’s very soft and furry. I’m using it as a small throw rug in my bedroom but would make a great chair cover. I am considering getting a couple more!" —Laura lu

    Get it from Amazon for $20.89+ (available in three sizes and in nine colors).

    5. This simple-looking bedside caddy because it'll become the perfect place to put all the little knick-knacks you reach for every day but have no idea where to store.


    Promising review: "This is the product I never knew I needed. I use a small bedside table for my phone charger. This thing holds my smaller items that tend to get knocked off the table like Chapstick, fire remote, etc. Perfect size and never gets in the way." —jenn skinner

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99.

    6. A color-changing diffuser to make your room feel like a soothing oasis even on your most stressful days.

    Promising review (for the diffuser): "This is a great little friend. It makes the atmosphere in room nice and cozy. It is small but I like it. It fits on my nightstand and it is easy to move around. While it isn't silent, it is pretty quiet. Overall, I love it." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in four colors).

    7. These blackout curtains because if you're like me, a steady stream of sunlight smacking you right in the face in the morning is the perfect equation for an all-day headache. Reviewers say these things actually block out all the light.


    Promising review: "Once you put these bad boys on your window, the room will turn into a black hole of darkness that will engulf both soul and body. I cannot even describe the room I was in as black, it was a much deeper, almost boundless effect. Sensory deprivation will set in within minutes. You will lose all sense of what is up and down and feel like you are floating in deep space." —The Raccoon

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

    8. A stunning chandelier with crystal pieces that'll make you feel like you actually live in a tiny palace instead of a tiny, cramped apartment.


    FYI, because it is a light fixture, after all, you probably would need to get it installed by an electrician!

    Promising review: “I purchased this for my daughter's room to replace an ugly ceiling fan/light. It was easy to install, and I had no issues hanging all the pieces once the fixture was in place. I really liked that they included several extra crystal pieces just in case. My daughter was thrilled! If you are like me and struggle to find the right light bulbs, I'll save you a few minutes and tell you an E12 is a candelabra base. I used a 60-watt, crystal clear, candelabra base.” —Ema N

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    9. Or! This antique-inspired table lamp to transform your room into a chic-looking cottage.


    You'll have to purchase a lightbulb since it isn't included.

    Promising review: "This is a beautiful, small accent lamp that is perfect for putting a little light anywhere you need it. The shade is very nice and sophisticated, and the base of the lamp has a distressed look to it that will easily fit into any decor scheme or color. Another feature I appreciate is the on/off switch located on the electrical cord. This item came promptly and was well-protected. This was an excellent buy for such a nice, smaller lamp, and I would recommend this item to others." —P. Bowers

    Get it from Amazon for $22.99.

    10. A tiered shelf you'll want to use to display adorable photo frames and aesthetic books in that random corner space in your room that you don't know what to do with.

    Promising review: "I really love this corner shelf! I had two nooks in my house where only a corner shelf would fit. I thought this shelf would suit my needs, so I ordered two and they fit in perfectly. Putting these together was a no-brainer — 10 minutes of no tools, just put the pieces together. The rods are indeed plastic, but once all the legs are on, this shelf is nice and solid. The shelf IS nice and stable, but I added a little extra support to the wall using Gorilla Tape. The shelves hold my knickknacks, and they also look really great. I got the black ones and they fit in perfectly with the rest of the house decor. I would definitely buy them again if needed." —FordChick73

    Get it from Amazon for $19.97+ (available in three, four, and five tiers and in 16 colors).

    11. This lavender room spray that reviewers say gives off a calming scent that helps them fall asleep a little quicker.


    Promising review: "I bought the lavender and the lemongrass misters on the chance that the aromatherapy claims would help with my insomnia. Yes, they absolutely do and I'm so glad I found these. Just before getting into bed, I simply spray a couple of light mistings over my pillow. The scent is natural — I grow both lavender and lemongrass in my garden but I am too busy to try and make my own spray. It helps me fall asleep more quickly and if I awake during the night, the pleasant scent still lingers, helping me to fall back asleep. Very pleased with this product!" —M. Grube

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in eight scents).

    12. An elegant-looking ottoman to give you a chic way to prop your feet up after a long day.


    Promising review: "This is an adorable petite ottoman. I have placed it in front of a covered chair and when I want to relax, I put my feet on it and it’s perfect. The gray velvet fabric is beautiful and the gold/brass metal bottom gives it a very interesting and unique look. The price is much more affordable here than anywhere else!" —Mia

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in nine colors).

    13. A faux bamboo leaf plant for anyone who wants to add a little green to their space but can't be trusted to not kill an actual plant.


    Promising review: "I really like this plant and pot. They are a well made, easy to manipulate, and a full-looking faux plant. I bought one and liked it so much that I got two more. Today I just bought four more. This is by far the best faux plant I've bought. It's a nice bang for your buck." —Barbara

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    14. This Himalayan salt candle holder to give your room a warm, welcoming glow that you can't help but wind down to.


    P.S., this is just a candle holder; candles aren't included!!!

    Promising review: "The coolest candle holders ever! No, they don't match in shape, that's what makes them even more awesome. They are very large, yours may be flat-sided or somewhat round. I have to drop the tea-lights in because the holes are deep. You'll just have to wait and see what you get! Their glow is so warm, giving that spa-like glow, romantic, or even a mysterious ambiance. I ordered two (apparently would have been cheaper to order as a pack), and I love them!" —item Reviewer

    Get it from Amazon for $6.06.

    15. These string light photo holders because they make the perfect, romantic-feeling way to personalize your space with your favorite memories of your favorite people.


    Promising review: "This product is soooo beautiful! I got the package timely and in excellent condition. I am in the process of redesigning my studio apartment and I've been looking for some decorations that will make my place cozy and has that personalized feel. This is the bomb! I can hang pictures and drawings on these string lights. Also, this is an electricity saver lol. At night when I just want to listen to the radio or watch television, I just turn this on instead of lamps and it is sooo beautiful. There is that romantic and cozy feel that an old soul like me would really love!" —Marselyne

    Get it from Amazon for $9.30.

    16. A plush-looking foldable saucer chair that's perfect if you want a place to sit that isn't the edge of your bed (and that actually doesn't take up a ton of space).


    Promising review: "I loved this blush pink saucer chair! I love the goldish frame. It’s big enough for me to sit and read comfortably in, but it doesn’t take up a huge amount of space. And, it’s so lightweight that I can easily move it if fold it up. It feels sturdy enough to sit in for a long time and I highly recommend it." —Rose

    Get it from Amazon for $56.62 (available in 19 colors).

    17. This peaceful-looking indoor fountain — you'll keep it right by your nightstand for those moments when you want to feel more tranquil at the end of the day.


    Promising review: "I've tried several fountains so far. This one is awesome, the pump is quiet, as is the water, it simply provides a really nice environmental impact on my workspace. I run it up to eight hours in a day, use distilled water only and clean it periodically, and it's running just like new after several weeks. Not all of the fountains that I've tried work quite so well, I'm impressed and happy with this purchase." —RodR

    Get it from Amazon for $21.97.

    18. A weighted blanket that some reviewers say has helped them achieve improved sleep.

    Reviewers suggest picking a blanket weight that is roughly 10% of your own body weight.

    Promising review: "I’d read the great reviews for this and was hopeful it would help increase sleep time and comfort, and wow! Before I received this weighted blanket, according to my Fitbit, I was averaging about four and a half hours of sleep per night due to pain. My first night with this blanket and I slept over seven hours!! Same for my second night. This is so comfortable and comforting. I’m recommending this to everyone I know!" —Jamie Eubanks

    Get it from Amazon for $61.90+ (available in 14 weights/sizes and in 21 colors).

    19. This memory foam mattress topper if you don't have the cash to get a completely new mattress straight away but still want a little extra comfort at night.


    Promising review: "My boyfriend and I wanted something to make our bed softer while also providing more support. His back has been sore, and we think it was from my mattress. We came across this, and it's perfect! It's soft, forms to our bodies, and it doesn't get hot. It feels like we're sleeping on a cloud!" —Sky Pet

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99+ (available in 2- or 3-inch thick toppers and in sizes Twin to California King including Twin XL, Full, Full XL, Queen, RV Queen, and King).

    20. A non-looping white noise machine to help mask surrounding noises so you can sleep, study, or work in ~peace~ without nagging noises.


    Promising review: "I LOVE my new sleep sound machine! I have to be one of the world's lightest sleepers, with just the faintest fan ticking, door opening, or snoring from my hubby waking me up constantly! Add in that we have a skylight directly over our bed AND have a dog who is disturbed by just the sound of rain, and I'm constantly waking from my slumbers! My doc suggested a sound machine with pink or brown noise so I chose this one. I DON'T like that there's no way to tell which sound is defined as what, BUT it doesn't seem to matter, as I choose one that seems to match to the octave of my husband's snoring and it WORKS! We've recently had several nights of rain, which would normally have our terrier scratching at the bed and crying, which leads to a light yap to get my attention, then onto a full-blown bark. Yet, NOTHING from her cute lips during ANY of the storms! It truly feels like a miracle has occurred in our home, as both I and my stormaphobe pup have been sleeping through the night!" —Mel

    Get it from Amazon for $33.92+ (available in two styles and two colors).

    21. And a fluffy throw blanket that's so comfy you might honestly trade your actual comforter for this baby.


    Promising review: "This blanket goes above and beyond the average blanket. If you've ever dreamed of sleeping in the fur coats of 50 rabbits but don't want the guilt of all those rabbits' lives, this is your blanket. It's light but warm, not too warm, just warm enough. The cats LOOKED at it and ran to the bed. Before I finished laying it out they started climbing on it like OKAY guys, calm down! And it's huge so you can really bundle yourself up or add an extra person comfortably. This blanket just seems sexy and luxurious. I don't really know. It's magical, and it's changed my quality of life for the better." —Emma Stanley

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in five sizes and in 21 colors).
