    There's ~new~ place like home.

    We hope you love the products we recommend! Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page. Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A vanilla basketweave quilt so you can cover yourself in something comfortable while falling asleep in your dream home.


    A similar quilt is also available in a variety of colors.

    Promising review: "It looks very nice, does not wrinkle, and is very well made. It's comfortable to sleep under β€” warm, but lightweight enough for warmer weather. I bought one set for the extra bedroom and then liked it so much I immediately bought another set for myself. This is an excellent price for an excellent product!" β€”2much2do2day

    Price: $19.97+ (available in two sizes)

    2. A candle wax warmer that's going to help your home feel warm, cozy, and lived-in (even if you've only officially lived in it for a couple of hours).


    Check out the full collection to find the perfect piece for your place.

    Promising review: "I've been using this wax warmer at home for several months now and I have nothing but great things to say about it. The wax warms evenly and the bulb never warms the glass to an alarming temperature (even after leaving it on for most of the day). It looks just as pictured in natural light, and the glass colors are vibrant when turned on in the dark. The glow comes from mostly the bottom green half, which casts a vibrant green light on the walls and surfaces nearby. It looks a little like your living room has a little ball of kryptonite glowing in the corner. I love it, but it took me by surprise at first. In the dark, the light provided by these glass warmers is bright enough to use as a night light for adults. If you like the look of this but aren't sure about the green glow, maybe consider the same product in tanzanite or opal instead." β€”Jackie

    Price: $17.88

    3. A macrame wall curtain you can use to divide a room or add a homey touch to an empty entryway (and if you're a real romantic, this is a beautiful way to keep something from your wedding ceremony in your home forever).


    Price: $33.73

    4. A decorative pot that'll help your decor immediately seem complete, because it'll look great on display even before you find time to put a plant in it.


    Price: $5.99

    5. A standing mixer for when you're ready to really call a place home β€” nothing says "grown up home" like a KitchenAid (and nothing says "home sweet home" like the cookies that come from a KitchenAid).


    Yellow not your color? Don't worry, they have all of the colors. All of them.

    Promising review: "I've dreamed of owning one of these since I was a little kid, and it's even better than my wildest dreams. The color is the prettiest antique shade. And the performance? It can't be beat. This thing powers through bread dough without breaking a sweat. It mixed up a triple batch of shortbread cookies without batting an eye. And it'll whisk your egg whites to stiff peaks before you can even say 'Meringue.' Everything I bake tastes 10 times better, and it's all thanks to this beauty. Not only is it gorgeous sitting on my kitchen counter, but this thing is impressively sturdy. That reassures me that this mixer will be around for many years to come. If you're on the fence about buying one of these or you think it's not worth the money, just buy it. Because it is definitely worth it, and as soon as you use it once you'll be kicking yourself for waiting so long to own one. This is the best thing I've ever owned!" β€”Jacyd9

    Price: $279.99 (If you don't have room for the standing mixer, grab the hand mixer for $49.99)

    Price: $38 (available in 13 colors)

    8. A midcentury modern credenza sure to look sleek and stunning in your home (even if it's secretly filled with all the things you haven't found a place for yet).


    Promising review: "I bought this as soon as I saw it and I'm so glad I did. It is perfect as a TV stand, taller than most, and has lots of storage that's easily hidden. It also has a perfect mid-century modern feel." β€”randglopez

    Price: $15

    13. A gooseneck clip lamp for easily adding some light where you need it at the clip (I mean, click) of a button!


    Promising review: "This is one great lamp sold at a great price. I ordered this for using as a reading lamp. It arrived well-packaged with the light bulb included. The lamp's clamp works perfectly. I needed a lamp that would clamp onto a small oddly shaped surface (the metal scroll-work on my bed's headboard) and I have not once had to readjust or re-clamp it. I have adjusted the lamp's head many times since installation and the lamp head stays put without drooping. The stem is taut and the lamp's head is not too heavy. The on-off switch located at the top of the lamp is a great design and works perfectly. For those of us with arthritic hands the size of the switch is greatly appreciated. :) This is one great little lamp!" β€”Iknozit

    Promising review: "I bought this mattress for a twin-sized manual adjustable bed and it's perfect. I can't explain the feel; it's like you're sleeping on nothing β€” nothing pressing on my joints, sort of like floating on air. I'm very happy with this mattress." β€”Robin588
