    the hat in light blue

    Promising review: "Love it, love it, love it. When I have a bad hair day, on it goes! Add a cute pair of earrings and off we go! I will add that I have a medium sized head and fine hair and it fits nicely."—sofarallthenameshavebeenu

    Price: $29.50 (also available in black)

    4. A pair of animal print mules because even though you aren't going into the office these days, your feet can still look and feel all jazzed up.

    Price: $11.70+ (available in sizes XXS–3X and three colors)

    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

    Promising review: "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–46DD and three colors)

    8. 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 10 colors)

    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!"—MelO

    Price: $40 (available in five colors)

    10. 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: "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, wide and medium lengths, and also in black)

    12. 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)

    13. 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: $59 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and nine colors)

    14. 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)

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

    A before and after of a model's hair using the product and showing an improvement in moisture and smoothness

    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

    16. A 32-ounce Hydro Flask to keep you hydrated on fall road trips with your family or friends.

    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!"—Ashley

    Price: $44.95 (available in 10 colors)

    17. 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: $65 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and also in purple)

    18. 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

    19. A pair of linen pants that'll keep you cool and cozy. I'm pretty sure Rachel from Friends called these "apartment pants."

    the pants in green

    Promising review: "These pants are very comfortable but also really cute, perfect for dressing down at home, or making a bit dressier to go out for the day."—LPDeegan

    Price: $59 (available in sizes XXS–XXL, petite and regular lengths, and three colors)

    20. 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.

    21. A pair of Ugg slippers for keeping your toes all warm this winter.

    the UGG in cream

    Promising review: "I work from home and needed some 'work' shoes LOL! The color is vibrant, they're super cozy, and the fit is great! I’m a normal size 8, but in all things Ugg I’m a size 7. I tried both sizes on and went with the 7! If you work from home like me, make sure you show your feet some love!!!" —GetFitWithWhit

    Price: $89 (available in sizes 5–12 and five colors)
