    1. A pair of Adidas running shoes that'll keep your feet comfy and supported on your morning run and for an afternoon of errands.

    Swift Run X Sneaker in peach with white side stripes and a white sole

    Promising review: "These are the most comfiest shoes I’ve worn in a while. I have the originals but I wore those out and I saw these at my local Nordstrom and had to have them. The fit is so comfy. Went for a walk and my feet didn’t hurt at all! These are amazing shoes. I hope they make more colors." —Judea92

    Price: $51 (originally $85; available in sizes 5–11 and three colors)

    2. A silk sleep mask and pillowcase set to spoil your hair and skin while you sleep. The silk material reduces friction on your strands, preventing breakage and frizz. And the silk is soft and gentle on the delicate skin around your eyes.

    Promising review: "I love the look and feel of this pillowcase. I have had silk pillowcases in the past, and this one is much softer than any I have had before. It is a splurge but it is very worth it. I would like an entire sheet set in this fabric!" —Chloepalmer

    Price: $91.50 (originally $122)

    3. A set of three stackable egg cups for adding whimsy to your kitchen table.

    The three cups in different black and white designs

    5. A crop sweatshirt because it'll pair perfectly with all your high-waisted denim. No more struggling to tuck in bulky sweaters!

    Model wearing the cream version

    Promising review: "It's my go-to casual look with high-waisted pants. I got this in sand and was pleased to see that it has a lovely pale pink undertone to it. It is perfect for relaxing at home, but for going out I layer a tank or tee underneath. I love the generous cut that sits away from the body." —devorah9

    Price: $19.50 (originally $39; available in sizes XS–XL and four colors)

    6. A cozy cowl neck sweater if you want to feel like you're swaddled in a soft blanket. It has extra long sleeves that are meant to be rolled for that extra bit of flair.

    The boots in black

    Promising review: "I love these boots! They are water resistant — I've tested them in mud, snow, and rain. They are also super comfortable. The front can rub a little on my leg but wearing the right height sock solves all of that. I love the little pop of color on the back; it definitely elevates an otherwise plain boot." —MNB15

    Price: $89.90 (originally $149.95; available in sizes 5–10 and also in taupe suede)

    9. A sleek pair of sateen duvet cover and sham set for anyone who takes sleepytime seriously. The silky soft cotton will feel so nice on your skin.

    Price: $95.90+ (originally $129+; available in four sizes and three colors)

    10. A Barefoot Dreams throw so you can curl up in its warm embrace and imagine you're Chrissy Teigen.

    Two blankets on a bench, one white and pink leopard print and one tan and black leopard print

    Promising review: "I purchased three of these blankets in the Black Friday sale (two as gifts): the midnight/camel for my husband and I and the stone for my daughter, which she LOVED. The color is very soft and creamy/beige- really pretty. The darker one is great for our part of the house, which is dark leather. My husband initially thought it was a frivolous purchase, however it's two days after Christmas and he’s CONSTANTLY stealing my blanket! These blankets are heaven! SO soft. They can be pricey but keep an eye out for a sale and snag them when you can. You will not be disappointed!" —SFtoNC

    The pink wire frame

    Promising review: "I’ve been wanting a digital frame for years and haven’t gotten one because I couldn’t find a frame that had the look I wanted.
