    1. A pair of classic Havaianas rubber flip-flops to replace your current pair, which you've basically worn to death.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This is my third pair of Havaianas as they are the sturdiest brand I’ve owned and hold up better than even more expensive flip-flops. The lilac color is very pretty." —LauraLNJ

    Price: $26 (available in sizes 5–12 and five colors)

    2. A pair of soft and fluffy slippers if you want a shoe that'll keep your feet nice and warm while you WFH.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "As soon as I walk in the door of my home, these slippers go on. I even do the early morning watering in the garden in them and have gotten them wet a few times. They are pretty durable and are like walking on air, but still more supportive than flip-flops. I’m on my third pair." —Colliemom01

    Price: $39.95 (available in sizes S–XL and five colors)

    3. A super cozy pair of joggers for lounging around your apartment — because making multiple snack runs from your couch to the kitchen requires the utmost comfort.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I wish I had bought multiple pairs of these. They’re so soft and not so thick that I’m sweating at night." —LWen

    Price: $39 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and in four colors)

    4. A pair of high-waisted leggings so you can stay warm without overheating. They're basically the Goldilocks of leggings — not too thin or too thick.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "These leggings are form-fitting, keep their shape, and can be dressed up or down. Exactly why I purchased them, love them!" —Deegd

    Price: $29 (available in sizes XS–XXL)

    5. A fun pack of 12 rainbow crystal earrings because ain't no party like an ear party.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Bought these earrings for a 14-year-old’s birthday. She loved them and her friends all thought they were very cute. They looked to be nice quality — great gift for a teen! Good price for so many pairs." —Stephwhat

    Price: $25

    6. A dainty necklace to layer or wear on its own. Sorry, I'm getting a little ~choked up~ about how much I love this piece.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Bought two in silver, one for myself the other for my teen niece. I love mine and my niece loves her! Now all her friends want one. I can't blame them; it definitely adds a certain flair. As someone with high and lower end jewelry, this piece is not cheap looking in the slightest way." —cloverevers

    Price: $48 (also available in gold)

    7. A plus-size scallop hem sweater if you have a slightly ~shellfish~ desire to hoard all things cute and cozy.

    Nordstrom

    Price: $45 (available in sizes 1X–4X and three colors)

    8. A cozy crewneck sweater for when you really should change out of your pajamas but want to slip into something just as comfy.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Super comfortable and lightweight. I love to wear this sweatshirt out and about running errands or with jeans for a relaxed weekend look. True to size. Nice, light material. Perfect for cooler spring-like weather." —Neener0251

    Price: $49 (available in sizes XXS–XXL and four colors)

    9. A stylish cardigan for serving cozy + chic WFH looks.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "This cardigan is the perfect weight to wear when there is just a little nip in the air. It fits true to size and is the ideal length to wear over leggings in the fall/winter and with a beautiful pencil or denim skirt." —TrendyRunner

    Price: $35.90+ (available in sizes XXS Petite–XXL Regular and five colors)

    10. A printed pajama set so you can prove to your partner that your PJs aren't always free T-shirts with holes in them and ratty sweat pants.

    Nordstrom

    Price: $49 (available in sizes XXS–XL and five colors)

    11. A set of silk hair ties because sleeping with your hair up shouldn't be painful. These are gentle on your mane and are designed to not leave creases from wear.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "These are the best hair ties ever! I have long thick hair and wear them mostly to bed to keep my hair up. They are awesome and do not tug or damage my hair." —adagenais

    Price: $39 for three (available in four color combinations)

    12. A fun sports bra that'll support the girls while you're trying to stay active with at-home workouts.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "If you are looking for a no-stress sports bra this is the one. I have been spinning a lot lately and watching all the peloton trainers with their fashionable sports bras. I bought this one and it's perfect by itself or with a top over too. Highly recommend!" —shopqueen17

    Price: $35 (available in sizes XS–XL and five colors)

    13. A durable Hydro Flask to make sure you're staying hydrated as you WFH now that you can't make frequent trips to the water cooler.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Decent size — only have to refill about 2–3 times a day. Mouth diameter is small enough where water won’t spill all over you like the wide mouth bottles. Purchased the fog color and it’s almost a nice lilac grey in person.">WillBnx

    Price: $34.95 for a 24-ounce bottle (available in six colors)

    14. A bougie-looking pair of oversized mirrored aviators if you're looking for a truly ~spectacular~ pair of sunnies.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I really like these shades. They look just as expensive as the LVs my BFF bought. I didn’t know they were going to be this fly. I was simply looking for another pair of shades" —Lyatonaya

    Price: $19 (available in three colors)

    15. A soft silk bandana for keeping your neck warm in this weird in-between weather. It also doubles as a cute hair ribbon!

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Love this little neckerchief — it’s a cross between a bandanna and a menswear tie. Cute accent for the summer, plus bonus points for real silk." —CCityGal

    Price: $19.50 (available in seven prints)

    16. A set of stacking rings so you can still feel like you're getting dressed up while you WFH.

    Nordstrom

    Price: $22+ (available in sizes 6–8 and also in vintage gold)

    17. A reusable Baggu tote because being kind to Mother Nature and ditching plastic bags at the store is, idk, really freaking cool. Also, how cute are these bags?!

    Nordstrom

    My current Baggu count is four though that number will probably grow now that many cities are banning plastic bags. Fortunately, these sacks hold a surprising amount of food and fold down to the size of a pocket square — very convenient so I can keep them in my purse at all times — so they're totally worth the splurge.

    Promising review: "I am so glad that I went ahead and bought this. It is extremely lightweight and also beautifully made. The color is vibrant and the print is vivid and unique. It also folds into compact size which makes it hassle-free to carry around with my purse all the time." —nyctooc

    Price: $9 (available in three prints)

    18. A tube of Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen that'll prep your skin for makeup, protect it from sun damage, *and* help preserve ocean reefs.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I've tried several daily sunscreens over the last several years and Supergoop! Unseen Sunscreen is my favorite. It really is easily absorbed and a great base for makeup. The only complaint I have is that it's not as sweat proof as some other sunscreens I've tried in the past. I had a very mild burn near my hairline on a couple of days where I was outside sweating. This one is great for everyday wear and I've never had any burns with normal use." —RMullins80

    Price: $34

    19. A deep conditioning mask to pamper your hair during your weekly self-care session.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "I have very thick, dry, coarse hair. I am very picky about conditioners and this one is amazing! Left my hair feeling silky and soft, great slip, and didn’t weigh it down. I’ll definitely be repurchasing when I run out." —pnwmama13

    Price: $9+ (available in two sizes)

    20. A stunning floral bouquet diffuser if you're sad about not being able to leave your apartment to buy fresh flowers.

    Nordstrom

    Price: $38 (available in two scents)

    21. A folksy monogram mug for making your morning coffee a little less dreary.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Love this cup. It's the perfect size and weight. I have arthritis and this cup is not too heavy and the handle is big enough that my fingers are cramped up. Love how it's a little wonky." —dmontiel2000

    Price: $12 (available in 26 styles)

    22. A luxurious set of absorbent cotton bath towels so you can get rid of the raggedy ones you've been using since college.

    Nordstrom

    Promising review: "Both my husband and I love these towels. We’ve had them for several years now. They are the softest towels we’ve owned, yet have a nice heft; they’re not wimpy and get you nice and dry after your bath/shower. We’ll continue to buy these. Please keep carrying them!" —Slg56

    Price: $29 (available in eight colors)

    23. A Smashbox liquid matte lipstick because I'm pretty sure this is the secret formula Plankton was after when he told Spongebob, "ravioli, ravioli, give me the formuoli."

    Nordstrom

    It's designed to last eight hours without smudging, flaking, or drying out your lips.

    Promising review: "AMAZING. Lasts all day, hardly need to retouch, goes on smooth!" —Jess97445

    Price: $24 (available in 12 shades)

    24. A ~clucking~ adorable rooster snood to keep your pooch's ears warm on blistery walks...and make for the sweetest Instagram photos.

    Nordstrom

    Price: $16+ (available in sizes S–L)

    25. A ceramic vase if you need ~a hand~ sprucing up your place. Cleaning this vase can be a little tricky as the opening is so narrow, so this is a great opportunity to arrange some fake blooms.

    Nordstrom

    Price: $45
