    Promising review: "I ordered this jacket as a transition piece between winter and summer. All my other coats are too heavy and no fun trying to wear on a night on the town. Anywho. I decided on this cute jacket because of the detail and style. Best decision ever! It fits so well and the details are beautiful. Great quality. I suggest you size up if you want to layer with sweaters." —Tam88

    Price: $49.90 (originally $88; available in sizes 2–12)

    2. A pair of high-waisted leggings to keep your legs warm for the next few months.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Hands-down these are the best leggings! They're made of nice thick material so they are not see-through. I love their higher waist which holds me in. I’m 5'8" and these are the perfect full-length leggings. For the last four years now, I’ve gotten a new pair every year during the Nordstrom sale. They're still worth full price in my opinion. My usual size is an 8/10. I size up to a large and they are great." —Kaitnett

    Price: $59 (free shipping; available in sizes XXS–XXL and also in gray)

    3. A reversible faux leather tote and wristlet so no matter what your outfit looks like your bag can match!

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I absolutely love this tote bag and its price point! It's sturdier than I thought it would be, and I will be using this a lot this fall and winter! Highly recommend! A great alternative to the Madewell bag." —kdeyoung

    Price: $49 (available in three colors)

    4. A cozy plush throw with tassels to keep you company while you spend many hours binge-watching holiday movies.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Six of them are in my home because we all fight over them. The other five I bought as gifts. I think I might have a slight addiction to them, ha! I bought seven last year during the anniversary sale and four more this year. I have washed them over and over and they are still super soft. I will say that you might not want to use a dryer sheet with them. I had one stick to one of my blankets. I can't say enough good things about these blankets! They are the BEST!" —Rose0614

    Price: $39.50 (available in 11 colors)

    5. A pair of wedge booties so you can have the height you want with the style you love.

    Promising review: "This is my second pair. They are comfortable, stylish, and give you a little boost in height without being unstable. I’m able to walk all day in them without sore feet. They go great with skinny jeans and leggings." —Jact

    Price: $119.99 (available in sizes 4–13 and 12 colors and patterns)

    6. A silk pillowcase that'll be less damaging to your your skin and hair then the cotton ones you have currently.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I was skeptical of the hype but the Slipsilk lives up to it. I bought the pillowcase a couple of weeks ago and I can already tell a difference in my hair. It is smoother and less frizzy. I bought two pillowcases for myself but my husband (who has a shaved head) claimed one for himself. He is pretty happy with how it feels too!" —Aekelle37

    Price: $89+ (available for sizes queen and king and in six colors)

    7. A Kiehl's recovery concentrate for that added boost of help to keep your skin hydrated this winter.

    Promising review: "By far one of the best facial oils out there. If like me you suffer from dehydrated skin in the winter months then this is a godsend! Everyone I know who has tried this loves it and I can’t blame them as it really does make a difference to your skin. An investment, but one worth making." —Francescazoe

    Price: $29+ (available in four sizes)

    8. A set of hydrocotton bath towels that'll get softer as you wash them! Can you believe?!

    Promising review: "The best towels ever! So soft and absorbent. They are thick but they still dry quickly so no need to worry about smells. They wash well too." —Kimmwc03

    Price: $29 (available in seven colors)

    9. An Urban Decay eyeshadow primer because you spent so much time on your makeup look they should stay put for a few hours at least.

    Promising review: "I don't know why I did not know about this product before. It has a built-in wand applicator and no globs coming out of it. It is just what I needed to ensure my eye shadow stays in place all day with the color continuing to enhance my eyes." —BunnyTime

    Price: $13+ (available two sizes)

    10. A plush robe that'll be your new uniform Monday–Sunday. Yes, that's all the days.

    Price: $28 (available in sizes A–E and and also in nude; check Spanx's size chart for more info on which size you are)

    12. A silk sleeping mask, because one thing we all need right now is a good night's sleep. These are like a hug for your eyes and will block out the world so you can get some much-needed Z's.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Very surprised by how much I like this sleep mask. I purchased this on a whim to see if I would like it since I often try to go to sleep before my husband finishes reading. I was worried the strap might be too tight but it is not tight at all and still fits well. I've also always been a side sleeper since I don't like our overhead fan blowing in my face. This mask blocks the breeze and has enabled me to sleep more comfortably on my back as well. Very happy and the quality is worth the price."—CharlotteAZZZ

    Price: $50 (available in six colors)

    13. A '50s retro electric kettle so you can curl up on the couch and watch Schitt's Creek with a hot cup of tea.

    Promising review: "Stylish and functional. Highly recommend. The auto shut-off feature is a lifesaver and looks great in the kitchen." —Andrea

    Price: $159.95

    Just FYI: Briogeo is a Black-owned business!

    Promising review: "My hair is color-treated, sometimes dry, usually with short fly-aways because of fast growth from my hair supplements. This mask leaves my hair smooth, silky, soft, shiny, frizz free and manageable. Great product."—Trixxi

    Price: $36 (available in two sizes)

    15. A tube of Anastasia Beverly Hills clear brow gel to keep your eyebrow hairs where you want them.

    Price: $22 (available in two sizes)

    16. A pair of fuzzy socks that'll bring you as much joy as they do warmth.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I use these as sleep socks. I sleep so much better when my feet are warm. Not hot, just toasty warm. These socks would make a great gift for someone who’s not feeling well, who is in recovery, or who just needs a feel-good gift." —Joync

    Price: $9 (available in four colors)

    17. A set of 15 hair ties of various colors so you can have some fun and keep your hair out of your face.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "These are literally the perfect hair tie. They are gentle on the hair, and not too tight but still grip the ponytail in place. Also as an added bonus: they come in many fashionable colors and patterns, so they are not just for sport they are for fashion. So if you are a proud ponytail wearer, you should buy these!" —CatWhite

    Price: $18 (available in 17 color combinations)

    18. A mug warmer set because you keep forgetting to drink your coffee while it's still hot!

    Promising review: "My dad is a chronic coffee reheater. He drinks the same cup all day long, and occasionally forgets to take it out of the microwave on Sunday. This little wonder keeps the coffee an even temperature all day. Dad said his coffee is smoother too. He said that the base doesn’t get hot to the touch. The bottom of the mug does, but everywhere else is fine. He also said that you can use the base to charge your phone. Overall, he loves this mug." —prleonard

    Price: $75 (available in nine colors)

    19. A soy candle for setting the winter mood in your living room while you have that glass of wine after a long day at work.

    Promising review: "I have been buying and trying different scented candles. I love this one. The scent is subtle, and not overwhelming even after hours of burn time. The wick doesn’t accumulate gunk at the top. Would recommend." —nora_b

    Price: $20 (available in eight scents)

    20. A cozy long cardigan with a shawl collar to easily throw over your shoulders as an added layer if things are colder than you anticipated.

    Promising review: "I loved the feel and length. I live in California so this works for a cool night or I can even layer if I need to." —studio101

    21. A knit coat with a removable hood that'll be your new favorite layer to add on top of your best graphic T-shirt.

    Price: $78 (available in sizes 1X–3X and three colors)

    22. A double-breasted peacoat to have you looking as cute as a button.

    Promising review: "This coat is a steal. Good quality for the price I paid. It fits true to size (at least for me) and warm enough for Cali weather." — mom_0f_3

    Price: $37 (originally $58; available in sizes XS–L and two colors).

    23. An initial pendant necklace that'll add some personal flair to your outfit. Choosing your favorite letter will be E-Z.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I’ve worn this for about a week with a variety of different outfits ranging from business casual/work from home (aka sweatpants) and I LOVE how this necklace elevates any look! My favorite pairing right now is with turtle neck sweaters. So cute! I’m not super picky about gold jewelry looking 'real' but I like the shine of this more yellow-toned gold pendant. The pendant also has a nice weight to it. Overall this is a great 'treat yo self' gift or gift in general!" —hellotaylor

    Price: $50 (available in 26 letters)

    24. A pair of classic sweatpants but in a color you really don't have and would totally love wearing ASAP.

    Promising review: "These are everything I could hope for in a loungewear pant. The fabric is incredibly soft. They are really rather chic — not sloppy sweatpants at all! I could live in these:)" —AnnaMK

    Price: $39 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and 11 colors)

    25. A plaid boyfriend shirt that'll stand out from the crowd of flannels in your closet.
