    1. Sumedha Bharpilania - Country Bean Caramel-Flavoured Instant Coffee Powder

    Sumedha Bharpilania

    "I am not a coffee person but this variant by Country Bean is so good that I've started reaching for a cuppa every single day. The flavour is rich and the fragrance is utterly beautiful. It tastes just like the caramel macchiato you get at Starbucks! Even better sometimes."

    Get the 60g jar for ₹319.

    2. Shreya Shetty - Amazon Echo Dot (3rd Gen)

    Echo Dot placed on a table alongside a lamp, a book, and a plant.

    "I've used this speaker for over a month now and I definitely recommend it. It has great sound quality + SHE TALKS TO YOU. For someone with no friends (like me) this is a great buy! JK, but for a lazy person (like me) a speaker with voice control is so convenient. Also for a forgetful person (like me), she reminds you about stuff! I'm obsessed with this speaker. Technology, am I right?"

    3. Kshitija Agrawal - Dot & Key Hydrating Sleeping Mask

    "I've only been using this gel mask for a couple of weeks, but I can truthfully say that this is perhaps the best sleeping mask I've used till now. I've incorporated it into my nightly routine and it's been putting me in a much better mood every morning when I wake up to soft and supple skin. If your skin needs some hydration (and whose doesn't?), I definitely recommend this Dot & Key mask!"

    Get it here for ₹795.

    4. Mugdha Kusray - Battery-Powered Fairy Lights

    Mugdha Kusray

    "I've wanted to jazz my room up for quite a while now, and there's nothing better than fairy lights! They make your room so much more peaceful and also create a really cosy space for you to relax in. The copper wiring ensures that there's no ugly wires in sight, and they're battery-powered - so you don't need sockets or plugs to light 'em up!"

    Get them here for ₹245.

    5. Shivani Agrawal - Dot & Key Vitamin C Serum

    Shivani Agrawal

    "I bought this for my mom just last week and it has already become a staple in her skincare regime. In just over 5 days, her skin is visibly healthy and the pigmentation spots on her face are significantly lighter. She applies it overnight and loves how light the serum feels, and it doesn't even make her skin greasy!"

    Get it here for ₹878.

    6. Ruchika Agarwal - Looms & Weaves 100% Cocoa Powder

    "I have been experimenting with baking quiet a bit during this lockdown and had been looking for a brand of cocoa powder that wasn't mass-produced, was high quality and made by a small, local business (#localpevocal or whatever the tagline is). This box of cocoa powder has proven to be just what I was looking for!"

    Get it here for ₹299.

    7. Vishal Jain - Borosil Vacuum Insulated Flask Water Bottle

    "While working I always have this tendency to not drink enough water as I am lazy to stand up and get myself some warm water to drink, but the bottle has solved my problem as I store my warm water in it and it stays warm for like 12 hours."

    Get it here for ₹645.

    8. Swapna Ravichandran - KARP Reusable Silicone Baking Mat

    A pair of hands rolling some dough on the mat.

    "Like everyone else, I’ve started experimenting in the kitchen these past few months, and baking in particular has been something that I’m really enjoying. I kept running out of baking sheets so decided to invest in a silicone one and it’s been a game changer. Now I never need to worry and check whether I have baking paper before I start baking, and it’s a small step towards being more eco-friendly as well."

    Get it here for ₹799.

    9. Madhumita Kannan - Sony WF-XB700 Truly Wireless Earphones

    "My first wireless earphones & I absolutely love them. Slightly lower in bass but will not let you down if you are not picky about sound quality. Super convenient & they do not fall off even with heavy pounding during my runs and workout sessions. The battery life is definitely worth it! It at least lasts for two to three days easily."

    Get them here for ₹8,990.

    10. Sharayu Ail - The Crazy Rich Asians Trilogy by Kevin Kwan

    "If you're looking for some light reading in these not-so-light times the Crazy Rich Asians series is the perfect choice! Kevin Kwan writes about the Singapore elite with a certain familiarity and attention to detail that makes you feel like you know all the characters personally. He also injects a generous dose of humour that makes it a very entertaining read. You'll get heavily invested in the love story and family drama that spans the 3 books and definitely leave with a few favourite characters. I'm 'Team Astrid' all the way! I read the trilogy for the first time last year while I was on vacation and re-reading it while I'm home instantly transported me to those hot summery beach days! You can also get a Prime Video subscription and stream the first movie."

    Get them here for ₹1,050.

    11. Shreya Mali - The 7½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton

    "I've been in a bit of reading slump since this lockdown started and this is the book that finally helped me get out of it! It follows this man who has woken up in a forest with no memory of how he got there and as you can probably guess, things only get weird from there. It's so complex and clever and overall, it's just really hard to put down."

    Get it here for ₹970.

    12. Sharanya Haridas - Skin In The Game by Nassim Nicholas Taleb

    Sharanya Haridas

    "I love Nassim Nicholas Taleb's books. Skin In The Game is about the values that make up a 'symmetric' world (one that values justice, fairness, reciprocity, etc.) and 'BS detection' when everyone’s incentives aren’t aligned. The central premise is that those who shape decisions (and stand to gain from them) should also share the risk if things go wrong— a.k.a. have 'skin the game'. This engaging book will help you cut through the noise and better discern the gaps you encounter between 'action and cheap talk, consequence and intention, practice and theory, honour and reputation, expertise and charlatanism, concrete and abstract, ethical and legal'… you get the drift!"

    Get it here for ₹499. You can also get the box set of five bestsellers from his Incerto series.

    13. Kshitija Agrawal - Burt's Bees Hibiscus Lip Tint

    Kshitija Agrawal

    "This is one of my favourite lip tints ever! It's super moisturising, subtle enough for the everyday work-from-home look I'm stuck with during meetings, and a gorgeous pink-red tint that also leaves my lips feeling soft and nourished for hours. Plus, it helps me deal with the outcomes from my horrible habit of chewing on my lips when I'm focusing."
