    1. e.l.f. Cosmetics acne-fighting spot gel to diminish the redness and swelling of your pimples so they shrink and your skin smooths out faster.

    elf Cosmetics

    Five-star reviews: 400+

    The spot gel is made with salicylic acid and tea tree oil to fight and prevent breakouts, witch hazel to reduce swelling, and aloe to calm and heal the skin. It's also vegan and cruelty-free. Lastly, if you love the idea of a spot gel but you're side-eyeing the roller ball situation (since there's basically no way to control how clean it gets once it's touched your pimple), just know that you can just roll the product onto clean fingertips and apply it to your pimples that way!

    Promising review: "This stuff is great! I was slightly skeptical but decided to give it a shot since it was only $3. I put this on a large acne spot before bed and in the morning it was significantly smaller (and less red and less painful). It is a rollerball which makes it very convenient and not messy. It does have a strong scent (like most acne-fighting products) but it isn’t too overwhelming. I definitely recommend and will repurchase if I run out which would be surprising since there is so much product and you only use a little." —Kenzval

    Get it from e.l.f. Cosmetics for $3.

    2. A Madewell V-neck tee so you can ~top~ off your collection of comfy go-to shirts.


    Five-star reviews: 1,000+

    Promising review: "I've purchased this tee in several different colors and it's my all-time favorite basic tee!! It's comfortable, high-quality, and lasts forever. It looks great on its own or layered under a cardigan. It'll be your favorite tee of the ones you own!" —Nordstrom Customer
    Get it from Nordstrom for $11.70 (originally $19.50; available in four colors and sizes XXS-3X; free shipping)

    3. A platform bed to give your room a sleek, simple look. Also, I must mention, this bed frame needs no boxspring. You grab this, add a comfy mattress to the mix and boom — you're bedtime-ready 🛌🏿😴!


    Five-star reviews: 6,000+

    Promising review: "I love it! This was my first time building something on my own and it was extremely easy. I completed this project in about an hour. It offers two height options which I wasn’t expecting; I went with the higher option. We ordered the queen size and are thrilled with our choice." —Kacie

    Get it from Novogratz on Wayfair for $175.06+ (originally $269; available in five colors and sizes full-king)

    4. A wine opener so you can pop those corks as easy as one... two... SIP!


    Five-star reviews: 300+

    The wine opener will come with a charger and can open up to 40 bottles of wine on one charge. It'll also come with a removable lid that converts into a foil cutter. Heads up: The description says you should handwash this baby ONLY.

    Promising review: "This wine opener was super easy to use. I wish I would've gotten this sooner as I've gone through plenty of those manual ones from the store, which always broke." –Jamie

    Get it from Wayfair for $38.99 (available in three colors).

    5. Clinique 72-hour hydrating gel-cream that you'll be able to use THREE different ways on your skin. Uh-huh! You can wear it on bare skin, on top of makeup, or as a five-minute hydration mask (which I recommend as I've tried it!).


    Five-star reviews: 1,000+

    Listen. I use this gel-cream on my super sensitive and sometimes dry skin and it's honestly one of the most effective moisturizers I've ever used. Its formula features not one but TWO super humectants — glycerin and hyaluronic acid — which help keep your skin super moisturized for up to 72 hours. I use it as a regular moisturizer but also, when my skin went through a super dry spell this winter (due to the air in a new apartment), I used it as a moisture mask, let it sit for five minutes, then wiped it off with a hot towel. Afterward, I applied toner and a final moisture layer of it as usual and my skin instantly bounced back. The next morning, my skin felt super hydrated instead of the dryness and tightness I was going through. Plusss, I had a lil' GLOW, honey 😏. Oh yeah, you'll be happy to know that this product is fragrance-, paraben-, sulfate-, phthalate-, SLS-, talc-, oil-, AND alcohol-free. WHEW!

    Promising review: "I love this product! I’ve been using it for a year or two and I’m very satisfied. It doesn’t clog my pores or feel heavy on my face. It’s not greasy and keeps my face moisturized all day long" —BrendaKing521

    Get it from Nordstrom for $12+ (available in four sizes; free shipping).

    6. Adidas running sneakers with a comfy insole to encourage you to take more walks to low-key get fresh air and high-key show off your stylish new kicks.


    Five-star reviews: 1,000+

    Heads-up: This shoe runs on unisex sizing (yay!) so make sure you double-check what size you select so you get what you need. Nordstrom actually recommends that if you wear half sizes, you may want to size down.

    Promising review: "These are, by far, my new favorite sneaker. They are incredibly comfortable and lightweight. The leopard pattern is super cute and I get stopped all the time by people complimenting on how cute they are. Make sure you size down half a size. I’m normally an 8 but got a 7 1/2 and I probably could have even gone to a 7 but didn’t want to get too close. Love love love!" —TVR26

    Get them from Nordstrom for $85 (available in three styles and sizes 5-11; free shipping)

    7. A long pillow to get full-body support so you have something comforting to snuggle and slumber with. The pillow's covered with hypoallergenic microfiber to prevent allergens from sticking to it. Plus, it's machine-washable.


    Five-star reviews: 1,000+

    Promising review: "This is so much nicer than other body pillows I have purchased. It's fluffy and full and not too firm or too soft." —Tanya
    Get it from Wayfair for $22.99 (originally $28.99).

    8. An air fryer so the to-cook-or-not decision will rarely be up in the ~air. This thing'll fry stuff up fast without you having to pull out the oil, brave popping grease, stand on your feet looking over a pot, OR do too much cleanup.


    Five-star review: 1,000+

    The air fryer can cook raw and frozen foods and it's good for preparing french fries, sweet potato nuggets, chicken wings, and more.

    Promising reviews: "I absolutely love this purchase! So far, I have used every day since I brought it and have cooked everything from breakfast to dinners in it. You can actually taste the difference in the foods you make and see the oils that would have been in them, had you made it on the stove. Another convenience with this is that it cuts cooking time in half!" —Evelyn

    Get it from Wayfair for $39.99 (originally $99.99; available in three colors).

    9. NARS Radiant Creamy concealer to conceal dark circles, redness, hyperpigmentation spots, and... probably your innermost desires and thoughts, too?

    Instagram / NARS / Via

    Five-star reviews: 7,000+

    The concealer is vegan and gluten-free. It also comes in a whopping selection of 30 shades!

    Promising review: "This is an excellent concealer. I can wear it with or without foundation and it looks great either way. A few dabs go a long way so one tube lasts me quite a while." —Ahhlyezea

    Get it from Sephora for $30 in the full size and $13 for the travel size.

    10. Classic MAC Cosmetics lipstick for days when you want to serve up a sultry matte lip. You'll be happy to know that this lipstick is SUPER pigmented so the color will pop jussst the way you need it to.

    Instagram / MAC Cosmetics / Via, Nordstrom

    Five-star reviews: 2,000+

    Promising review: "I just love it. The color is great and not overbearing. The texture is what I find astonishing. It's matte but doesn't dry out your lips. It has a good hint of moisture in there and it's a longwear formula so it lasts and lasts." —9icequeen

    Get it from Nordstrom for $19 (available in over 20 color choices including the Russian Red show here; free shipping).

    11. A Bahama Breeze Yankee Candle that'll make your space smell like pineapples and mangoes fresh from a tropical island. Mmm! If you close your eyes, you might even hear the sound of the ocean and swaying palm trees. 🍍🥭🌊🌴

    Bed Bath & Beyond

    Five-star reviews: 300+

    The scent includes notes of pineapple, mango, and grapefruit scents.

    12. Classic Old Navy flip-flops that'll be your go-to summer slip-ons.

    Old Navy

    Five-star reviews: 19,000+

    I also adore these flip-flops because they feel good on my feet, are incredibly easy to clean, and do not stain so they never get a "worn" look to them.

    Promising review: "These are the BEST flip- flops for summertime! They're durable, comfortable and can be dressed up or down. I've been buying these for years in all different colors!" —Ann

    Get them from Old Navy for $3 (originally $3.99; available in five colors and sizes 5-11).

    Instagram / Fenty Beauty / Via, Sephora

    Five-star reviews: 8,000+

    The gloss gives you high shine without feeling sticky and uncomfortable on your lips. It also provides hydration that really does last for up to three hours. It'll also last a pretty long time even if you use it every day.

    Promising review: "It's seriously good. I like how the color is sheer. For a lip gloss, this is on the less sticky side. It’s also not super thick but stays on my lips for many hours and moisturizes too. Riri is killin' it. I also appreciate how she chose to price her line at a reasonable price too." —Llee5

    Get it from Sephora for $19 (available in six colors) OR the full Gloss Bomb set for $42 (available in a five-shade set).

    14. A reclining and vibrating massage chair to gift yourself a spa experience right in the comforts of your crib.


    Five-star reviews: 300+

    15. A cute bodycon tank dress for days when you want to step out and look stylish yet casual AND days when you want to kick it around the house and look very mirror selfie-ready.


    Five-stars: 2,000+

    This is a basic dress design that you can wear one day with sneakers and another day with heels. Yay versatility!

    Promising review: "I love this dress! I am petite (5-foot-3 with a 24-inch waist and a 32-inch bust) and usually have a hard time finding dresses that fit as intended. I got this dress in XS and it's perfect! It's not too tight and the length is not too short or too long. It can easily be dressed up or down and is also super comfy. I first got it in grey but once it went on sale again, I got it in black as well. I'm considering if I want it in green too." —Jpwash

    Get it from Nordstrom for $28+ (originally $56; available in eight colors and sizes XXS-XL; free shipping).

    16. An Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette that — per the reviews — you'll most likely want to wear every single day. Whether you're going soft glam or aiming for the no-makeup makeup tease, this thing will def help you bring your look to life.

    Urban Decay, Instagram / Urban Decay / Via

    Five-star reviews: 4,000+

    The palette has 12 neutral shades in matte, pearl, and metallic finishes. BTW, it's also paraben- and cruelty-free. Woot!

    Promising review: "I have had this palette for almost two years and it still looks as good as new and I use it almost every day. It’s gorgeous and provides a natural look and I would recommend it to anyone! The palette is a bit pricey but for the quality and use I have gotten out of it, it is very worth it!" —Sardavis

    Get it from Sephora for $54 (available with free shipping).

    17. Mid-rise jersey leggings to make you question every single moment you ever spent wearing pants.

    Old Navy

    Five-star reviews: 6,000+

    Promising review: "These have such a comfortable fit. I am going to be buying two more pairs since I have been living in mine since I got them. The petite sizing made me understand why people love leggings. They fit perfectly on the waist (not too high) and on the ankles too. The elastic is also very comfortable." —Her_mess

    Get them from Old Navy for $9+ (originally $12.99; available in four colors and sizes XS-XXL).

    18. A deep pocket ultra-soft sheet set that'll practically have you melting into bed when it's time to turn in for a nap or the whole night — without worrying about a corner popping up and getting you all tangled.


    Five-star reviews: 1,000+

    Promising review: "I've tried many sets of sheets on my bed. I move around a lot while I sleep and I wake up with my sheets coming off the bed every morning. With these sheets, I wake up and they are in the same position as I put them on. They're also very soft." —Sean
    Get it from Wayfair for $22.99+ (originally $49.99; available in sizes twin-king and 16 colors)

    19. A dishware set to fill your kitchen up with heavy-duty pieces that — according to the rave reviews — can withstand repeated use by your entire household. They'll also bring some more fun and vibrancy to your kitchen if you choose the brighter color options.


    Five-star reviews: 600+

    But of course, this 16-piece set comes in neutral colors, too if that's more your jam! It'll come with four dinner plates, four salad plates, four cereal bowls, and four mugs.

    Promising reviews: "I love these dishes. I got one set in gray and one in white. In my new house, we decided to put the dishes out on open shelving so of course, we had to have decent dishes. I chose these and I'm so glad I did. People actually comment on how nice looking they are! They are pretty sturdy. We haven't had an issue with one yet. The cereal bowls are HUGE as are the coffee cups. We tend to use the coffee cups for dessert cups. They're perfect for a scoop of ice cream!" —Erin

    Get it from Wayfair for $43.99 (originally $99.99; available in five colors).

    20. A non-slip rug pad – stick it under your area rugs to make sure it doesn't slide around on the floor and that the edges of it lay flat. Also... it has so many five-star reviews, it just might transform into the magic carpet and fly you through Agrabah...


    Five-star reviews: 84,000+ 😱

    Promising review: "These are really good rug pads. They're nice and thick for the thinner rugs that I had purchased from Wayfair. Even though I have furniture anchoring the rugs, these are definitely preventing any shifting. They're also easy to handle and although they're folded in the shipping package, they lay flat immediately when you're ready to lay them down. I bought two which are slightly smaller than the rug size and they're excellent!" —Kathleen

    Get it from Wayfair for $17.99+ (available in 10+ rug sizes and shapes).
