    1. A Patagonia coat made with recycled wool for earth-friendly folks who love some practical fashion.


    Promising review: "I love this coat. I've only worn it a few times and have already received compliments on it! It's warm without being bulk and I really like the longer length. It does run a little large so I would size down. I absolutely recommend this jacket!" —Pattie M.

    Get it from Backcountry for $149.40 (originally $249; available in three colors and sizes XS–XL).

    2. A squalane oil that'll lock in your skin's natural moisture without feeling heavy on your face. This one wild ingredient will make your skin feel softer and smoother, while helping redness and irritation fade away.

    The Biossance squalane oil

    Promising review: "I love this oil!. It's amazing for my skin hydration and helps balance too much of my own body oil production (I have dry spots and overly oily spots my body likes to make)." —Biossance Customer

    Get it from Biossance for $32.

    3. A chic waterproof boot for keeping your style lookin' smart while wearing shoes that are able to handle whatever weather you walk into.

    Black ankle-height boots with slight heel and zippers in back

    Promising review: "I love the fact that this is sustainable footwear!! The leather is buttery soft, they are so comfortable, the heel is perfect height, and they are easy to get on and off!! I bought two pair! If you are in between sizes, size up. This boot is exquisite. If you are looking for a beautifully made bootie, look no further." —Leigh

    Get them from Nisolo for $240 (available in three colors and sizes 5–11).

    4. A faaancy bottle of Coco Chanel perfume in a beautiful glass vial that'll be worth keeping on display long after you've sprayed on your last spritz of this statement-making scent.

    Closeup shot of glass perfume bottle

    5. A pair of Hunter boots sure to always be there for you, rain or shine.

    Green knee-high Hunter rain boots inside house

    Promising review: "These are worth every penny. I just mucked about in the biggest mud puddles outside my house, in the rain – I didn't slip or slide. I've used them in red clay and mud. They're comfy, well-built (of course), and I don't even need to walk carefully in them. Thank you, Midsomer Murders and every other BBC show I watch, for convincing me to throw out the cheap, decorative rain boots I had and go for the real deal. I totally get it now. I'm off to find some more mud." —mestayou

    Get them from Amazon for $52.99+ (available in 13 colors and sizes 5–11).

    6. A truly mouthwatering caviar flight with enough caviar to serve up to 10 people. Simply select from the domestic, international, and imported caviar options (you get three!) and give your tastebuds the best dinner date they've ever had.

    The entire pack includes a caviar cooler, cocktail blinis, creme fraiche, and mother-of-pearl tasting spoons. Every product is packed fresh and lasts up to six weeks, unopened and refrigerated.

It's a fun way to make a night at home something really special.

    Get it from The Caviar Co. for $217.

    7. A leather duffle bag with a seemingly endless supply of handles, straps, zippers, and pockets so figuring out how to carry all your luggage doesn't have to be added weight on your shoulders.

    Large rectangular carryon with clip-on shoulder strap and several pockets held together with buckles

    Promising review: "This bag came so well protected, wrapped and inside a cotton storage bag. Each brass piece was also wrapped with foam and tape. The care that went into this puts this seller in my personal top five. The bag is huge and beautiful, the color is spot on, and and the leather smell is pleasant, the smell of good tack. Am I impressed enough? Yes, to the point where I'm also buying the 24 inch model. This seller has my highest recommendation. You will not be disappointed" —Rich

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99+ (available in two sizes).

    8. A gorgeous ladder bookshelf so you can step up your bookshelf situation with a piece worth keeping around forever.

    Angled metal frame with four wood shelves

    Promising review: "This is the lowest price for the best quality! I really took a risk buying this; no reviews, no comments. I didn’t know what to expect, but I love it! This is made with strong material and is very modern looking!" —Madison

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in three colors).

    9. A Tarte Cosmetics Shape Your Money Maker Vault for throwing some (lovable) ~shade~ at the VERY particular makeup enthusiast in your life this Valentine's Day.


    This set includes an eye and cheek palette (with eight colors), a primer stick, and a detailing paddle brush set (with three brushes).

    Promising review: "The brushes are soft and pretty! They do exactly as described and deposit color beautifully. Shape Tape primer is the best!! There’s no weird drying feeling I’ve experienced with other eye primers and the color stays PUT — I have four cats who rub my face and my eye color went nowhere. The eye palette is beautiful and the highlight/contour gives me a nice sunkissed look." —Rebecca P.

    Get it from Tarte for $65.

    10. A steel stovetop smoker that can withstand 600 degrees and help you make the most delectable dishes your tastebuds have ever touched. No, I'm not crying. I've just got smoke in my eye.


    This is also a surprisingly effortless tool to learn how to use, considering how gourmet it'll make your food taste. Just toss in some wood chips and cover them with the steel insert. Once you've added your meat or vegetables, cover with the sealing lid and (this is the hard part)...wait for it to finish cooking. That's it!

    Promising review: "Works like a charm. There is minimal smoke, even though the food is definitely smoked. We live in an apartment and this is excellent – a great product." —Vibrantone63

    Get it on sale from Food52 for $119 (originally $200).

    11. A customizable desk with dash panels to create the workstation of your dreams, whether you're a crisp and clean minimalist or (like myself) a massive maximalist.

    Nine O, Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    This desk has upgraded my work from home life so drastically I can hardly remember life without it (pretty sure I've blacked out those work-from-bed days). I got the filing shelf to hold all my favorite spooky books, the dry erase panel for taking quick notes, and a headphone hook. It doesn't take up floor space (a need in my tiny apartment) and it even has a charging dock available with extra outlets for USB cords and standard plugs, so you don't have to hunt around your house for extra outlet space. The adjustable shelves are simple to set up and super satisfying. Plus it's pretty...dang pretty.

    Get it from Nine O for $375+ (available in three kits with a selection of customized add-ons).

    12. A pair of top-of-the-line wireless earbuds — a big ol' splurge that'll truly make your music (or your podcasts, for you pod people) sound outta this world smooth.

    Headphones inside case

    These were our top tier choice for true wireless earbuds on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Promising review: "I have owned Google Pixel Buds, Airpods, and B&O E8s and none of them touch the sound quality of these. The build quality is very good and made of premium materials. I am able to discern various instruments with high detail and clarity in various genres ranging from rock, hip hop, R&B, classical, and even some EDM. The bass is natural and there is clear separation. These do have a warmer sound profile overall, but I tend to like that.10/10 would buy again." —Ilsabahnur

    Get them from Amazon for $134.99.

    13. A lotion bar gift box with individually wrapped bars in different scents. Grab the entire pack for yourself or separate them if you love giving great "just because" gifts.

    Cardboard box with burlap bags filled with labeled lotion bars
    Papa Rozier Farms

    Papa Rozier Farms is a Brooklyn-based company founded by Haitian-American siblings, Rubens Amedee and Fredeline Amedee-Benjamin. The siblings started their organic farm on 50 acres of land in rural Haiti. The land was owned by their late grandfather (the actual Papa Rozier!) and their business created 30 full-time jobs. They've continued to support their birth country by building the BATI School on the land, a K-12 institution "designed to equip Haiti’s future with the transformative education needed to address the island’s challenges."

    Get it from Papa Rozier Farms for $62.

    14. A bath salt set to treat yourself to if post-holiday stress leaves you feeling ~salty~.

    Three different bath salts in glass jars

    This Black- and woman-owned company creates 100% natural, artisan crafted and cruelty free skincare. Founder Kennedy Lowery, born of French Creole and West African ancestry, says she attributes her appreciation for ritual and the healing arts to her Louisiana roots.

    Promising review: "I got these as a gift for my partner and she said they were the best bath salts she's ever used. I will definitely buy these again once the first set runs out. Good stuff." —Cameron McCloud

    Get them from Amazon for $56.

    15. A chiliPAD bed cooler to make one or both sides of the bed cold from the bottom up, so the human heater you sleep beside can finally sleep as cold as they want (even with the covers on).


    This includes a reversible, hydro-powered Chili Cool Mesh™ Pad, thermal regulating control units, and a remote. The system uses hydropower and operates within 55-115 degrees F. You can also get the Ooler app to control your bed's temperature from your phone.

    Promising review: "This has been a game changer for me. Hot flashes and night sweats are gone and my sleep is much improved. I highly recommend this product." —Jenny D.

    Get it from ChiliSleep for $499+ (available in two styles and three sizes).

    16. A preserved fern ball that requires EXACTLY zero upkeep — you can simply hang this thing up and hang out with it forever more! A plant you won't kill? Worth every penny.

    Round moss ball with fern leaves spreading from the top, includes hanging strings
    The Sill

    I bought this months ago because I really wanted plants in my home and REALLY wanted to not kill them. This gave me a chance to beef up the plants I have without adding in more work. I dust it every so often but other than that, it's a no-effort piece of decor that looks *stunning* 24/7. I can't rave about it enough! And have no fear for your furry friends! Even if you leave this where they can reach it, it's pet-safe!

    Get it from The Sill for $75.

    17. An AeroGarden that'll be a fool-proof way to grow fresh herbs outside of a garden and inside your fifth-floor walk-up.,

    This six-pod kit includes Genovese basil, curly parsley, dill, thyme, Thai basil and mint, with a bottle of plant food. It works thanks to its energy-efficient LED lights (that automatically turn on and off every day, no need to deal with them yourself). It grows up to six plants at a time, that can grow up to 12 inches. The plants grow in water, not soil, so there's not even a mess.

    Promising review: "I have a black thumb, which I think is important to add to this review. I planted everything photographed Jan. 3, 2019 and I took this photo this morning (Feb. 5, 2019; above left). It takes care of itself and the plants grow a little bit more each day. It's the most exciting part of my morning routine — while my coffee brews I admire my plants!" —Kristy Campbell

    Get it from Amazon for $99.97 (available in three kits).

    18. An Apple Magic Keyboard designed with quick scrolling, document navigation, full-sized arrows, and increased stability in the keys, so you can work (and, more importantly, game) with ease.

    Large, flat keyboard in front of small laptop keyboard

    Promising review: "Truly I am obsessed with this keyboard. It connects to both my MAC and my PC desktop (not at the same time though) and it's lightweight but quality in its design and structure. Everyone laughs when I whip it out to use but hey, I don't care for the MAC keyboard anyway. LOL" —Martina Britt Yelverton

    Get it from Amazon for $139.

    19. A hand-crafted ceramic essential oil diffuser – it's gonna cover up the smell of your bulldog (who is definitely not supposed to be your roommate) when your landlord comes over.


    Promising review: "After researching, this diffuser cost a little more than others, but the design and quality more than justified the price difference. I've seen other diffusers and they are all plastic and feel/look cheaply made. The Vitruvi model really is stone, which adds value and appeal to my whole apartment. Also, it's smaller than other brands out there, so fits in well as an accessory. We ordered the peppermint oil and the diffuser worked great in our home. Great product and would recommend!" —Deanna

    Get it from Amazon for $99.31+ (available in three colors).

    20. A Tuft & Needle mattress designed to be breathable, soft, and supportive at times when you'll need it most.

    Uncovered mattress on metal bed frame

    Promising review: "This is a game changer. I am the youngest of three, so I’ve always gotten hand-me-downs. This is the first mattress I’ve actually bought for myself, and I’m in love. I’m a hot sleeper, and side sleeper, and this mattress is so perfect that I feel like it will improve my daily functioning. I would always wake up exhausted on my old mattress, waking up multiple times throughout the night either sweating or just uncomfortable. One night on this mattress, and I feel rejuvenated! It is the PERFECT mattress." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $445+ (available in six sizes).

    21. A pair of Allbirds sneakers so comfortable you might forget why other shoes even exist.,

    These are our mid-priced pick for the best everyday sneakers on BuzzFeed Reviews!

    Get them from Allbirds for $95 (available in 18 colors and sizes 5–11).

    22. A hanging leather headboard to add a soft and sophisticated touch to the lone mattress you currently have lying on the ground.

    Rectangular leather headboard hanging from two leather straps on either side

    Promising review: "This headboard is everything I wanted and more. It looks beautiful and the quality is outstanding. This is a gorgeous piece." —Bruce C.

    Get it from Citizenry for $695+ (available in two colors and sizes).

    23. A box set of 52 magnetic Tegu blocks so you and your kids can create shapes, places, machines, and creatures without gravity weighing your imagination down.


    Promising review: "I have to admit the price turned me off from buying these for way too long. We bought out first set for our youngest daughter for Christmas and these were a HUGE hit with both of our kids. Almost all the other toys got ignored for the rest of the week. My oldest daughter turns three in just a month and all she has been asking for is Tegu blocks for her birthday, which is why we purchased this set. I have yet to meet a kid that has not loved to play with these, all my nieces and nephews, my daughter's friends, and the kids in her playgroup have whole-heartedly approved of these. They are one of the only toys we own that are played with on a daily basis." —T Kruse

    Get them from Amazon for $119.

    24. A luxe leather office chair for anyone who works on a computer all day and knows their tailbone deserves some special treatment — it's working as hard as you are.

    Leather rolling office chair with plush headrests

    Promising review: "For starters, installation took about 10 minutes without bumping into any problems. I am 6'1" and 195 pounds, and I work at home and spend about 8–10 hours daily sitting on this chair. So far, it has provided continuous comfort for my back, and my productivity has increased since switching to this chair. After eight months of daily use, the cushioning still feels like new!" —TY16

    Get it from Amazon for $147.03+ (available in two colors).

    25. A mystery jungle box with four small plants customized to work with the lighting available in any home. You'll be surprised by how much you love having new ~buds~ around.


    All plants in this mystery box are 4 inches in diameter and include care instructions.

    Get it from Rooted for $59 (available in two light styles).

    26. A vibrating facial brush — an exfoliating skincare tool that'll take your basic bath to the next level. I own this thing and IMHO, I'm pretty confident this would ~vibe~ with just about everyone.

    My hand holding up my palm-sized cleansing brush. It's the shape of a flattened egg, with soft silicone bristles on both sides.
    Mallory Mower / BuzzFeed

    I pump my cleanser onto this, add some water to my face, turn it on, and rub away all the dirt and grime from the day. I remember saying "Woah" out loud when I felt how soft my skin was after using this for the first time. Now I just take it for granted. Turns out, soft skin is a *very* fun thing to take for granted.

    Promising review: "Before getting this device, although I have a very strict skincare routine, I really didn’t exfoliate often enough. Now being able to gently exfoliate whilst I cleanse morning and night is so great, especially as I have been able to add this into my skincare routine without any additional time! I have super sensitive skin which gets red very easily but this device is gentle enough for me on the middle speed setting (or even higher) with no irritation. You can play around with different levels of vibration, which is great, and I find the highest level is great for massaging the forehead (also try the back for this area) and it's really relaxing!!

    I’ve had mine for a few weeks already and it still hasn’t run out of charge yet, so will be great for travel! Important to note that I did follow the instructions to charge mine as soon as I received it. Plus the super cute pink color looks so nice in my bathroom!" —Sophie

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99.

    27. An adjustable baby carriage so well designed it's gonna show you that strolling around with a colicy newborn, fidgety baby, and active toddler is still gonna be a walk in the park.


    Promising review: "I am very happy with the purchase of this stroller. It's very easy to assemble. This comes with a bassinet for a baby and a chair for a toddler, and a rain/mosquito cover." —Maria

    Get it from Amazon for $459 (available in two colors).

    28. A self-cleaning litter box that'll make being a cat parent instantly less crappy and more happy.

    Cat walking out of automatic litter box with cover

    Promising Review: "This works so well I didn't even think my cats were using the box, I thought they were just going in and out. I had to witness them using it to believe it. No smell at all!" —Gloria Silvers

    Get it from Amazon for $169.95 (available in two colors).

    29. An orthopedic dog bed so your senior dog can spend their days snoozing in the sun and you can sleep soundly knowing they're comfortable.,

    Using human-grade memory foam, this mattress is designed for durability throughout your dog's life. The water-resistant liner helps preserve the integrity of the bed for years and keeps your dog comfortable. The fur and hair resistant cover is anti-tear, removable, and machine washable.

    Promising review: "We have two dogs and a lot of dog beds. I was looking for something supportive for my older dog. This bed purchase has been the best. It was easy to put together right out of the box; the bolster is already zippered in and the mattress, once unsealed and expanded, fits easily into its cover and zips in to the bottom portion. It's easy to vacuum and clean. The bed is light and easily moveable, yet doesn't shift when on the floor. My old lab loves it! He is close to 80 pounds and the large size works for him. I will purchase this bed again." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $44.93+ (available in three colors and four sizes).

    30. A green tea mattress that'll be so comfortable house guests will be ~green~ with envy whenever they get the chance to sleep on it.

    Plush mattress uncovered on metal bed frame

    Promising review: "This bed is the jam! I'm a flight attendant. I sleep in a lot of hotel beds. I know what good and bad beds feel like. THIS BED IS AMAZING. It cured my boyfriend's back pain and cured my sleepless nights. I can't remember the last time I slept through the night... now I can't wake up. This is the Oprah of beds. I am pretty convinced getting this is the best decision I've ever made in my life. —Kimberly Wilkins

    Get it from Amazon for $252 (available in four densities and five sizes).

    31. A pair of vintage straight jeans that'll be in style literally as long as we are on this earth.

    Free People

    Promising review: "I'm usually iffy with Free People's jeans, sometimes they fit, sometimes they're not meant for women with hips/butts. But oh my these are amazing. I wore them for a week straight after they arrived. They definitely run true to size. The denim is thick but stretchy for comfort. And the rise on these is perfect. Seriously, buy these without any hesitation." —cactuslady

    Get them from Free People for $78 (available in six colors and sizes 24–35).

    32. A balancing blueberry 3-in-1 cleanser formulated to remove your makeup, cleanse your skin, and prevent future breakouts. It's smoothing effect will also help the rest of your skincare products work better. I'm pretty certain you're gonna love this ~berry~ much.

    Cleanser inside clear bottle
    Glow Recipe

    Promising review: "This has a great scent and it easily makes a later with one pump. There is plenty of product for price. My skin feels smooth and clean after I rinse. It doesn’t feel tight or dry after either. I haven’t had any breakouts since using this and I have used it for a few weeks now in a new routine of glow recipe products. I definitely see improvement in the color of my skin, my skin looks refreshed and does not look blotchy. It looks even and refreshed." —Loral C.

    Get it from Glow Recipe for $34+ (available in two sizes).

    33. And finally, a darling instant print polaroid camera so you can snap a shot of all your most memorable moments...particularly the ones you share with all the fab new products you're about to have in your life.


    This touch-screen camera also has a viewfinder, so you can easily center and snap the perfect pic. It has a self timer,1080p video to photo-booth mode, image stabilization, and flash...all this without any need for a computer. Bless.

    Promising review: "I have been looking for a polaroid camera for awhile, trying to find the best. The features and pictures that I've gotten from this has by far exceeded my expectations. I will also be ordering one for my mother-in-law!!!" —Sharon Howcott

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in five colors).
