    Get them from Amazon for $17.99+ (available in 22 styles).

    2. A heated blanket because the snuggle is so real.

    It has three different heat settings and shuts off automatically after three hours, so things don't get too hot to handle.

    Promising review: "This throw is soft and comfy and you can't feel the wires unless you're searching for them. It gets warm enough on the low setting." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in six colors).

    3. A cuddle buddy body pillow that'll be the big spoon but won't complain about watching A Christmas Prince for the 11th time.

    Plus, it's okay if you drool β€” you can take off his shirt and throw it in the wash.

    Promising review: "I got it as a gag gift and was surprised to find that it's the most comfortable pillow ever. I sleep so well with it, and it's great for neck support or propping up my iPad." β€”Tiffany L.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in two colors).

    4. A big ol' box of snacks to make your apartment as fun as an actual movie theater.

    It includes two cute popcorn containers, two bags of popcorn (duh), two bags of Cracker Jacks, and eight different kinds of candy. There's enough to share...or not.

    Get it from Walmart for $33.33.

    5. A heated foot spa for when you really wanna treat yo' self.,

    You can control the heat and vibrations by tapping a button with your toes! It also has a splash guard so you won't totally flood your living room.

    Promising review: "This foot bath is perfect for relaxing after a long day. I was a bit worried it'd be too noisy, but it's totally fine and barely phases us while we're watching TV or listening to music. The ridges on the bottom are a nice touch as well. I highly recommend this if you want something to help you relax and take care of your feet!" β€”Amanda B.

    Get it from Amazon for $27.49.

    6. An armrest pillow that loves curling up with a good book just as much as you do.

    People love this one β€” it has over 1,000 reviews on Amazon.

    Promising review: "I am very pleased with this pillow. I like to work in bed using a laptop desk, but our bed has no headboard so there is nothing to lean back on. When I'm using this, my body heat affects the shape of the foam and makes it conform to my body, almost like memory foam. The arm construction is better than many similar pillows, because they're tighter in towards your body instead of being too wide. The velour fabric is nice, I like the color, and the pile is soft and long enough that the pillow doesn't slide when I lean back against it (hooray!). The seams are all double-stitched which gives me hope that they'll last. I also like the handle on top, and I use it to shake out the pillow before every use. This is hands down the best reading pillow I've ever tried." β€”jeninmaine

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in two sizes).

    7. A fuzzy robe so you can be presentable for the .5 seconds of social interaction during which you open the door for the Seamless guy.

    Yes, you have to stand up and talk to another human, but at least you'll still be cozy. Plus, this baby absorbs moisture so it's the perfect follow-up to a long soak in the tub.

    Promising review: "This is the best robe I have. It feels like you are wearing a cloud. It's very comfortable and I enjoy wearing it around the house, especially on chilly mornings. I also like that it has two pockets instead of one." β€”Gracey

    Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in straight sizes S-XL and plus sizes M-XXL and in three colors).

    8. A subscription box made just for introverts to turn your alone time into a one-person party (the best kind of party, tbh).

    The Wallflower Box sends you an adorable self-care package every month. Each box includes 6-8 products like snacks, body care and beauty products (always cruelty-free!), books, accessories, and inspirational tips.

    Get it from Cratejoy for $39.99+/month.

    9. A book to educate you in the art of hygge, a.k.a. the Danish philosophy of how reach peak cozy.

    William Morrow

    15. A bubbling clay mask for the most LOL-worthy pampering session you've ever had.,

    Your upholstery will thank you.

    Promising review: "I gave these out as party favors. Everyone loved them and actually used them that night rather than the wine glasses that were set on the table. In addition to being sturdy, they're insulated so your wine stays at the right temperature. Plus, like coffee tumblers, there's a closure on the mouth opening, which definitely helps with the spillage factor." β€”NoName

    Get a set of eight from Amazon $29.99.

    20. A three-wick candle with excellent advice.

    @bathandbodyworks / Via

    It also serves as a great lap desk for lying on the couch or in bed with your computer. Plus, it's collapsible so you can carry it like a regular tray.

    Promising review: "I like how big this tray is. Usually my plate doesn't even fit on this kind of tray, but it fits on this one. I used this daily for 6-8 weeks of post-op, to eat on, to do my writing, and to put my laptop on. I had a laptop desk that didn't work as well as this! I still use it every day to carry my meals to the table." β€”Jody Pawel

    This thing was basically built for doing your nails in front of the TV.

    Promising review: "This is the best product! It holds my polish like I have an extra pair of hands! It does not spill and it stays upright while I paint all ten toes. I have some polishes that are in round bottles and some in square. It holds either kind perfectly." β€”Mawmel

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in eight colors).

    24. A vibrator for when you want to really take advantage of your alone time.

    This one has 17 vibration patterns and dual heads. Plus, it's super flexible, waterproof, and charges via USB so you never have to deal with pesky batteries.

    Promising review: "This is the best vibrator I've ever owned! Both sides vibrate with tons of different frequencies, strengths, and patterns, and can vibrate at the same time or separately. The material feels amazingly silky, but is also tough and a great quality. It's super flexible, easy to hold, easy to operate, and easy to charge. Overall, it feels amazing." β€”Julie

    Get it from Amazon for $25.99 (available in two colors).

    25. An adorable incense burner so you get the homey feel of a log cabin without the threat of cholera or bears.,

    Get the Cadbury from Amazon for $6.84, or get the Godiva from Amazon for $15.

    27. A mug to say "Yes, Netflix, I am STILL HERE," so you don't have to.

    I was pretty proud of not moving for the past six hours and I'm honestly feeling so attacked right now.

    Get it from Colorblindagency on Zazzle for $16.75.

    28. A chair that allows you to feel fully immersed in your games, shows, movies, and music.

    There are speakers next to the headrest and you can feel the bass of the the audio. There are even volume controls and a headphone jack on the side. Basically, this thing puts the "rock" in rocking chair.

    Promising review: "This chair is relatively light and easy to carry, and it folds in half so it can be conveniently stored. The wireless audio feature is one of the best parts. I was afraid of having a network of wires running from my television to it, but there's no need. I've connected the included wireless transmitter to my TV's stereo outputs. So far I love the wireless feature! I am very pleased with the sound that comes from the speakers so far as well. There are two concealed speakers located at the top of the chair, one just above each shoulder, and a larger woofer on the bottom of the chair for bass. This speaker configuration provides a nice stereo sound bubble. It's certainly better than the speakers built into most TVs today." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $86.61.

    29. This sloth friend who wants nothing more than to curl up and be lazy with you.

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.
