    1. A pair of Madewell high-rise skinny jeans for those days when you want to switch it up from just sweats.


    Promising review: "These are a stylish, good, basic jean. Very comfortable with the high waist. The wash is a great wash for all seasons — the reason I bought these. I would recommend them." —ClassyCasual

    Price: $128 (available in sizes 23–37).

    2. A water-resistant Fjällräven backpack so you can feel fashionable while also being practical about how much you need to fit into your backpack (a lot).

    The light and dark orange backpacks

    Promising review: "I’ve been using it for work before COVID, and obviously will continue once I go back to the office. This bag packs a bunch! Love the black with red and I have two pins on it so far to customize it. It’s comfy and does the job! Couldn’t be happier!" —NYCCALI

    Price: $80 (available in 16 colors)

    3. An underwire bra with fierce embroidery on the top to add just the right amount of texture and make it feel more special if you want to dress up every now and then.

    Promising review: "I have a new bra choice! I love this bra. I always had a hard time finding pretty lacy bras and I think I might have found one of the most comfortable bras. The bra feels comfortable without digging into my shoulders." —Lele

    Price: $69 (available in sizes 32GG–44G and three colors)

    4. 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.

    the pink eye mask

    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." —CharlotteAZZZZ

    Price: $50 (available in nine colors)

    5. A four-layer mask scarf to add some personality to your now everyday accessory.

    Type Of Fit: Elastic ear loops; adjustable tie closure

    Pocket For Filter: Yes

    Fabric Type: Cotton

    Shipping Time: Due to the impact of COVID-19 and increased order volumes, orders may be delayed.

    Promising review: "I get compliments every time I wear this mask scarf. I love that these are made by a small woman-owned business in LA that is using reclaimed fabric. Doing good in so many ways; good for you and the environment. I’m looking forward to what’s next!" —MelO1

    Price: $40 (available in three colors)

    6. A '50s retro electric kettle because Taylor Swift essentially declared it to be officially fall so it's time to get our hot tea ready.

    The kettle in pink

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

    Price: $159.95 (available in six colors)

    7. A fresh pair of Birkenstock sandals with a twist so you can break them in this summer and upcoming fall.

    Promising review: "My first pair of Birkenstocks and I love them. Comfortable and formed to fit every curve in my foot. It really helps with relief. The sandal is stylish and the straps are adjustable." —Pgonz

    Price: $99.95 (available in sizes 4–11.5 and two colors)

    8. A Longchamp bag for anyone who is the Mary Poppins of their friend group. Hair tie? Got it. Hand sanitizer? Say no more. Tampon? You get my point.

    The bag in dark navy blue

    Promising review: "I bought mine about four years ago and it is still in good condition, despite everyday use. I have used my Le Pilage Tote as a 'backpack' in college, a purse on weekends, and even as an overnight bag for last-minute trips. I love the material, because unlike my other bags, the Le Pilage is durable in all types of weather. I don't have to worry about a rainy day ruining the bag or my belongings and I have spilled water inside the bag (numerous times) and it drys rather quickly." —PostGradPrep

    Price: $145 (available in three colors)

    9. A pair of high-waisted leggings that'll keep you comfortable as you're doing things around the house all day.

    The tights in black

    Promising review: "I’ve had these for almost a year now and I cannot say enough good things! I live in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, and I mostly do outdoor activities in these. I rock climb, hike 14ers, scramble over ridges, run trails, and more in these, and they never fail. They’re never too hot!" —Lolosilver12

    Price: $38.90 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and three colors)

    10. A reusable portable bowl so you can start storing your lunches and leftovers in something that's better for the environment.

    Promising review: "Great idea and well done. Sturdy and firm locking lid that holds an ample serving to transport. Easy to use and does not leak." —Leevis

    Price: $25 (available in eight colors)

    11. A deep conditioning mask with a vegan and cruelty free formula to help your hair recover from days out in the summer-time heat getting a bit too dry!

    Just FYI: Briogeo is a Black-owned business!

    Promising review: "My hair is color treated, sometimes dry, usually with short flyaways 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: $9+ (available in two sizes)

    12. A pair of high-waisted leggings with POCKETS, because it's so satisfying when you're wearing tights and you can just slip your phone right into your pocket like NBD.


    Promising review: "These Zella leggings are the perfect fit and hug in all the right places. They move with you and don’t fall down when working out. Good quality, especially for the price. Not see-through either, which is an absolute must for me. I will be purchasing more of these." —Sue

    Price: $42.90 (originally $65; available in sizes XXS–XXL and also in purple)

    13. A 32-ounce Hydro Flask to keep you hydrated on all of your summer adventures deep into nature.

    A model with the blue bottle

    Promising review: "I LOVE my Hydro Flask. I like it better than a YETI personally. It keeps water ice cold when it’s hot out or when I’m having a tough workout at the gym. I'm very satisfied with the color selection!" —ashley19155

    Price: $44.95 (available in six colors)

    14. A rose quartz facial roller to help de-puff your face as an extra ~very satisfying~ step to your skincare routine.

    A model using the roller on their cheek

    Promising review: "Ordered this a little over a year ago. Still works great and feels nice/relaxing in the morning to de-puff. I roll on my temples too if I get tension. Not too expensive either. It does the job." —Piano

    Price: $28

    15. A pair of linen pants that'll keep you cool and comfy in the summer heat.

    A model wearing the pants in dark gray

    Promising review: "Ordered these as an option for summer pants and I am not disappointed! They are very lightweight and comfortable. Length comes to lower calf." —Sixpals

    Price: $59/a> (available in sizes XS–XL, petite and regular lengths, and five colors)

    16. A tube of Anastasia Beverly Hills' clear brow gel to keep your eyebrow hairs where you want them without adding too much makeup to your face.

    A model with gelled eyebrows

    Promising review: "OMG BEST BROW SETTER ON THE PLANET!!! Seriously I never knew I needed this until I got it in a gift set and I will totally repurchase in the full size!!! Your brows won't budge all day and you get so much product for what you're paying!" —alpl2004

    Price: $22 (available in two sizes)
