1. A Pioneer Woman Edition slow cooker to satisfy all your extended food warming needs, as well as all of your floral decorating wants.
2. An air fryer for quick, easy, and oil-less french fries, onion rings, fried cookie dough, fried Oreos, fried Snickers — and maybe fried Skittles? Temps go up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, so be careful with those candies when you take them out.
3. A SodaStream Fountain to turn boring ol' tap water into exciting and new sparkling water (or soda) in just 30 seconds. This kit comes with everything you need — the maker, a CO2 cylinder, and a reusable bottle — except water, strangely.
4. Over-the-toilet shelving that'll make use of all that underutilized space. Finally, somewhere to put your toilet paper so you're never abandoned again!
5. A coffee grinder to get fresh grounds on-demand for every 12-cup pot of coffee — no awkward waiting in lines at the grocery store necessary.
6. A tabletop tray that'll hold your assortment of books, papers, letters, parking tickets, etc. This gray wood wash tray should fit several small items or lots of tiny items.
7. A calendar wall clock to help you keep track of what day of the week it is when you're stuck at home for what feels like years. This 20-inch clock has a lightweight plastic frame and is easy to hang anywhere — even on a wall!
8. A breakfast sandwich maker for fast food comfort meals without the wrappers or drive-thru lines. Cook up hot sandwiches like bacon, egg, and cheese in five minutes, and then toss the removable parts into the dishwasher for an even quicker cleanup.
9. A bathroom set to tie the whole space together — with flowers! This17-piece set includes a shower curtain, rug, toothbrush holder, lotion pump, and soap dish, which can also hold a tube of toothpaste (poorly).
10. A pair of blackout window curtain panels for a better shot at a decent night's (or day's) sleep. Blackout curtains not only block pesky sunlight, but can help keep heating and cooling costs down and thwart passerby from seeing into your bedroom.
11. Peel-and-stick wallpaper that will give your home office, home gym, or home kitchen that distressed wood feel. Each pack comes with 16.5 inches by 20.5 inches of wallpaper. You shouldn't need extra, as it's easy to hang, re-positionable, and comes off without sticky residue.
12. A wax warmer for releasing soothing scents to your indoor space without a flame or soot residue. A 25-watt bulb (included) gives it a gentle light for a touch of ambience or nighttime reading.
13. An area rug to cover the part of the floor where you... you know. Plus, it will liven up a room and make walking around slightly less jarring to your knees.
14. A pair of chenille throw pillows for a soft, comfy place to lay your head during that daytime nap that you definitely deserve.
15. A pair of plaid throw blankets to get warm and cozy under. Each of these extra-soft, coordinating plush blankets are pretty big, so they cover enough space to snuggle you relatively effectively.
16. A wooden nightstand for everything you might need in the middle of the night — like your glasses, a glass of water, and a life-sized Darth Vader bust. The cubbies allow for plenty of open storage, if you're into that sort of thing.
17. A floor lamp with five fun colored shades — good for adults, great for kids, and pretty much meh for babies.
18. A rocker gaming chair for your kids to rock and game in! Suitable for kids 3 years and older (up to 200 pounds), they'll like the gentle rock. You'll like the anti-tipping design, ensuring they won't tumble backwards into your collection of antique glass figurines.
19. A poster or picture frame to hang all those diplomas you've been hoarding. This frame is pretty big, so do make sure your photos are high-res before blowing them up and displaying them.
20. A flatware set for times when matching cutlery is called for — as in, all the time. If you already have silverware, consider this a second set for camping or for a new dining room.
21. A queen-size weighted blanket full of glass beads to give you the soothing sensation of being held or hugged by a loving parent — who is full of glass beads.
22. A shoe rack with ten tiers to organize and position your footwear based on arbitrary ordering systems — such as number of times worn or depth of treads. Plus, it should fit in really any room.
23. A small table lamp for your end table, nightstand, or other furniture with at least one flat surface.
24. A wooden end table to mark the end of your sofa and the beginning of the rest of your living room. It can hold one 50-pound weight — or 50 1-pound weights arranged very carefully.
25. An essential oil diffuser with a tank for misting essence throughout your room or house. Despite the calming glow, no heat is used for this — it actually runs on silent ultrasound vibrations, same as atoms (we think)!
26. A bookcase to hold all the items that don't fit on your nightstand, end table, or other storage spaces. It has five shelves, three of which are adjustable and two of which are fixed — which is a weird way of saying they don't adjust and not that they were previously broken.
27. A night-light (or four) that automatically switch on and off as needed. Use them to illumine your 3 a.m. strolls up and down the hallway.
28. A food thermometer to make sure your meat is safe to eat and your candy is, well, candy. (Undercook sugar and you just have sugar.) Stick the tip in your foodstuff and get an accurate reading on the LCD within seven seconds, or less time than it took you to read this.
29. A toy organizer consisting of colorful bins — four small, three medium, and two large — and wood shelves to teach your kid about putting things where they belong. Now if only we could remember where we left our screwdriver so we could assemble this thing....
30. An electric kettle to get as much as a liter of water boiling without taking over a stove burner or the microwave — use those for actual food!
31. A foam floor puzzle mat to make learning the alphabet fun for your kids, or at least pretty convenient. Once your child has mastered his letters and numbers, let them figure out how many square inches the thing covers.
