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


    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: $19.99 (available in two sizes)

    2. An industrial candle wax warmer that's gonna help your home feel lived-in and totally yours (even if you've only officially lived in it for a couple of hours).


    Promising review: "This is a really sweet warmer. I have it set out in the living room and get a lot of nice comments about the look of it. It works well." β€”kriegfamilyshopper

    Price: $17.88

    3. A pair of darkening window curtains that may do a great job of blocking out the sun, sure, but they're still gonna brighten up any room you put them in.


    Promising review: "I love my new curtains. They are just what I was expecting. The colors are vibrant and they look just like the photo. They are soft to the touch and very eye-catching to look at. I am very pleased with my purchase and would definitely buy these again." β€”Amy

    Price: $25.23

    4. A milk bottle vase because you've been ~bottling~ up your excitement for this move too long β€” you can finally embrace that enthusiasm fully (with some rather symbolic home decor).


    Price: $21.69

    5. A KitchenAid mixer you can get in almost any color and throw on your kitchen counter to help ~mix~ your old treasures with your new space.


    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: $379.99 (If you don't have room for the standing mixer, grab a hand mixer).
