    1. A resin lamp that'll make up for the fact that you can't have an actual giraffe as a roommate. And, honestly, I'm pretty sure this is better. Finding decor this darling is a ~tall~ order.


    Promising review: "I got this for a baby shower for for a young lady who loves giraffes. It's even more beautiful than the pictures, and has a stone-like look. It's heavy and well made. Quite a few women at the shower said they wanted one for their house. It goes with almost any decor. Everyone just LOVED it!" —Sharon B.

    Get it from Amazon for $107.

    2. A sloth shower caddy for keeping your shower organized and a little more efficient while also reminding you it's just fine if you want a slow start in the morning.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $49.

    3. A trinket dish that's gonna be a tremendous delight in your life if you're a fan of squirreling away tiny treasures.


    Promising review: "I gave this as a gift along with some creme brûlée almonds to a colleague who has very eclectic taste. It was packaged well in the box and I opened it to ensure it was not damaged, before giving it to the recipient. It was actually a little larger than I expected but honestly, I didn't read the dimensions before purchasing. The quality is good. I would buy one for myself in the future." —Camilla Lee-Shono

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    4. A colorful tapestry that'll look ~whaley~ great on your plain white walls. Or your multi-colored walls. Or maybe your ceiling. Hey, you know what? You go ahead and put it wherever you want.


    Promising review: "This is so cool. I recently moved into a new place and wanted something to decorate my bedroom. This is perfect if you don’t want to do anything permanently on your wall. It’s very stylish and makes the room so special and unique. The canvas is very light, so you don’t need to worry about it falling off. The quality of the paint is very fine." —Derek L.

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in two sizes and colors).

    5. A rad tiger bath mat, because you are tired of having to hide from your cleanly roommates every time you leave a lake's worth of water on the bathroom floor. Get this and you won't slip up ever again!

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "This is a cute bath mat. It's a good size and seems to be good quality, not too thin! I love it!" —kateneus

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $49 (available in two colors).

    6. A ceramic planter that's so earily adorable you're gonna love it with every rabbit of your heart.

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    7. A removable wallpaper so you can add details to your dreary rental's walls. These are easy to take off and won't cause any damage to the walls underneath, so you can keep ~feline~ fine about it as long as you stay in your place.

    Urban Outfitters

    8. A baby playmat — a comfy solution for not-quite-crawling kiddos who wanna be out and about, in a design so darling you won't mind leaving it out. This might be the only time everyone loves having an elephant in the room.

    Crate & Kids

    Get it from Cate & Kids for $89.

    9. Or a geometric elephant mail slot who's gonna organize your life (or at least your desk) if you have a bunch of papers and pamphlets you need to pachyderm into one place.


    Promising review: "I like this even better than I thought I would! It goes so well with my modern decor. I was laying all of my mail in a pile on the counter and sorting it, and this keeps everything so much more organized and neat looking. The size is as shown and it's very sturdy." —Daniel K.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

    10. A Dalmatian blanket for anyone who knows how to ~spot~ a perfect sofa accessory.


    Promising review: "This throw is so incredibly soft. My dog loves to snuggle on it. I like how warm it is and it was easy to wash. This is a big throw too, I often find throws to really only be only a little bigger than large bath sheet. Not this one. It easily covers you. I also like the bold colors of this throw. It will brighten up decor without being too overpowering." —Melissa

    Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $23.74 (available in seven styles).

    11. A shower curtain covered in cute forest critters that you'll be happy to see when you leave a camping trip smelling like a wild animal and need to wash up scat... I mean, stat.


    Promising review: "This is good quality and comes with hooks. I'm super happy I bought this for my huge shower." —NatashaGrey

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in three sizes and 37 colors).

    12. A customized pet portrait for keeping around a depiction of your family pet in attire that's as distinguished as they deserve. The tropical shirts your dad keeps dressing the dog in are unacceptable and you will have to rectify the situation the next time you go home for a visit.

    Crown And Paw, Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    I recently ordered two of these, one of each beloved cat. I sent in a photo each, making sure their faces were clear and forward-facing, and then picked my favorite outfits (there are a ton to chose from)! I can't believe how great the results are. The quality is fantastic and they are laugh out loud funny and fab. I'm a huge fan.

    Get it from Crown And Paw for $49.95.

    13. Or a Disney-inspired illustration so you can show off your childhood pet in a style you would have loved in your childhood.

    Brittany Ann Art

    Get it from Brittany Ann Art on Etsy for $85+ (available in two styles and up to three pets per piece).

    14. A toilet seat decal sure to delight anyone who loves ~kitten~ around with their home decor.


    Promising review: "Do you live with someone who loves cats? Or possibly want to annoy someone who doesn't? This sticker fits the bill. It arrived within a week and totally creeps out my husband. No more hour-plus bathroom visits. Score! This is hilarious." —Jen S.

    Get it from Amazon for $2.30.

    15. An embroidered lampshade so cute you're gonna want cocka-two of them.


    Promising review: "Wow! This is the best lampshade I have ever purchased! I was initially attracted to the colorful/playful shade and the reviews were outstanding. I just have to say that I am so glad that I purchased it! It works perfectly in my living room. The design is so fun and the quality and embroidery work is remarkable, especially for the price. The glow is bright but also so warm and cozy. Love it!!" —AmyP33

    Get it from Anthropologie for $168.

    16. A lovely cat candle that'll look so cool as it melts you'll wish it had nine lives.


    Promising review: "The candle burned almost exactly as shown in the pictures. There was a little smoke that came off the metal when first exposed, but it quickly went away. There's no scent to the candle. It's been burning about 15 hours." —Richard Keker

    Get it from Amazon for $34 (available in six colors).

    17. A pair of bookends for anyone who is trying to encourage their partner to get a pet. Giving them bookends this cute could certainly help ~seal~ the deal (although you probably won't be able to get a seal).


    Technically, I'm pretty sure these are sea lions. And I hope they forgive me.

    Get them from Anthropologie for $38.

    18. A plant cultivation kit so you can start to nurture some little herbs in place of the puppy you aren't quite ready to take responsibility for yet.

    Forever 21

    Promising review: "This is very cute and it actually grows well. I have already transferred the basil and white cloves to a larger planter. My niece and I reused it so she can plant flowers." —Rocio L.

    Get it from Forever 21 for $13.90.

    19. A 40-piece animal decal set sure to add an understated elegance to your own little animal's nursery.


    Promising review: "These came exactly as expected and they're super cute! They're easy to peel off and adjust. The animals are black and the rest of the vinyl sticker is clear, so these can be used on any color of wall. We used them on a gray wall and love the results in our nursery." —Michael

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    20. A clever ring holder to seriously help you out if you're the kind of person who never ~nose~ where you leave your jewelry.


    Promising review: "This little statue is perfect for holding a few rings. I generally take my wedding band off when I sleep and would lose it quite often while fumbling around in the dark to find it in the mornings. Now I slip it over the trunk and know right where it is. This statue is solid but comes with less bronze than you see in the picture." —Ryan H.

    Get it from Amazon for $17.49.

    21. A fleece cat throw that'll keep you as comfy and cozy as if you had an actual furry feline on your lap (and this'll shed *far* less. Bless).


    Promising review: "I bought this for a very close family friend who is a BIG cat person. She loves this product and says it's a good size and very cozy and warm." —Russell W. Rotolo

    Get it from Amazon for $24.99 (available in 15 colors and four sizes).

    22. And finally, a rattan basket that's gonna keep different odds and ends organized without looking fishy one bit.


    Promising review: "It's larger than I expected and works great. I use it in the bathroom to hold rolled towels and it looks great in my coastal home. It's very cute!" —Dolores Steagall

    Get it from Amazon for $54.50.
