1. An ethereal color-changing moon lamp that emulates soft moonlight so you can recreate the feeling of sleeping under a full moon. You'll be excited for bedtime just so you can turn this on!

Amazon, amazon.com

This has 16 colors. The moon itself is true to the actual moon's surface and texture. It can be controlled by touch or by remote and runs on a rechargeable battery. You can charge the lamp on your computer, power bank, or wall outlet.

Promising review: "I remember seeing something like this listed for over $50. I wanted one so badly because I'm obsessed with the moon and thought it would be a beautiful thing to have as a night light, but I'm cheap and didn't want to spend that much. Well, here came this listing and OMG I love it! I love how many colors you have control over and the fade function is my favorite to use. It's real easy to set up; you just have to charge it with the provided USB charger. The remote works as soon as the moon is removed from the charger and AHH it's so cool! It can really set the mood for whatever you're going for. I enjoy the detail on the actual moon; all the bumps and grooves add to the realism while the colors make it fun and interesting. You can have a 'moon-color' warm or white light too. I am so happy with this purchase!" —Tiffini

2. A metal wall grid panel for displaying photo cards, pictures, and any keepsakes that are just too pretty to hide.

Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: "This grid was exactly what I was looking for. I had seen similar products in stores, but they were usually more expensive than this. It's perfect for pinning up some postcards I wanted to display!" —Amazon Customer

These lights come in eight modes. Reviewers advise not to untie the twist ties!

Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

5. A cottagecore-esque pastel paint-by-numbers kit because it's perf for beginners. The ending image is so gorgeous you'll want to hang it up right away!

Each set comes with a detailed numbered outline, three brushes, and a set of numbered acrylic paints with extra to spare.

Promising review: "I loved this painting! I was worried that it wouldn’t look right but it turned out perfect! Way more than enough paint! Some lighter colors you had to go over twice." —Anonymous

6. An all-natural, vegan, non-toxic, and cruelty-free stain remover to get rid of evidence of the wine spills on your bed, pet messes, dirt, and so on. It's like a stain-vanishing potion! You'll be surprised how easy it is to use.

amazon.com

It works on stains from grass, berries, blood, sweat, oil, tomato sauce, watermelon, red wine, mud, cosmetics, pet accidents, and more. Wanna know more on why we love it? Check out our Puracy Natural Stain Remover review!

Promising review: "This stuff is straight magical. It has gotten out tattoo ink, wine, blood, marinara, whiskey, coffee, and other liquids and foods from white and cream colored clothes. I have used it on those weird spots that show up on your clothes when you don’t let the water run before you add the soap and then clothes. Gone like they never happened. This stuff works on pet accidents, child activities, and other spill-able enterprises. It’s also all natural. I keep a small spray bottle of it in my purse. It has come in very handy for not only myself. Whoever invented this, you have my deepest thanks." —Catie

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

7. A storage box for all those pesky cables, cords, and loose wires that make your room look ugly. This doubles as a charging station for your devices too (and of course, looks nice in your room)!

amazon.com

Promising review: "I'm so happy with this organizer box. I can't stand a heap of tangled cords going every which way. I've got two AC adapter boxes in there. Also in the box is a small power supply, the cord for the iMac I use, and a long USB cord plugged into my charging station. It's awesome." —Ben W

Get it from Amazon for $21.99+ (available in five colors).

8. A super pretty rainbow prism suncatcher you can hang up so as the sunny days pass by, you'll get to bask in tiny little rainbows that'll really perk your mood up!

Get a set of two from Amazon for $9.98.

9. A pack of vacuum bags for wondrously shrinking even your bulkiest clothes down so you can slip them under your bed or in small spaces. Enchanting, right? If you've been looking for more space-efficient ways to store your clothing so you can actually see the floor of your bedroom, this is it!

Maitland Quitmeyer / BuzzFeed

BuzzFeed editor Maitland Quitmeyer swears by these:

"WHY didn't I buy these vacuum storage bags sooner?? I've only put them into several posts, and scrolled through the before + after review photos a million times, thinking 'man that would really help with my closet.' But it wasn't until I gazed in horror at the volume of sweaters I need to somehow store in my overflowing closet that I FINALLY hit 'add to cart.' Just one large bag was plenty to store nine or 10 *very* large winter sweaters — all collapsed down to a fraction of their size. And it was surprisingly effortless, too! I just used the included hand pump, and it took maybe three minutes max to pump out the air and shrink the bag before replacing the cap — easy peasy! And no danger of re-inflation. My closet game is forever changed!!! All I can say is thank you Maitland, for actually taking your own advice for once."

Get them from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in four sizes and a variety pack).

10. A flip-down hanger that'll give a super contemporary way to store and show off your coats, scarves, umbrellas, hats, and more!

Promising review: "These hooks are functional and fun. There are five hooks for hanging your items. It's plastic, not wood — the description states this. It's easy to install and came with a paper ruler to use as a guide when installing. I have rain coats, umbrellas, sweaters, and dog leashes hanging on it and it's holding well." —M String

Get it from Amazon for $25+ (available in four colors).

11. An easy to grow rubber tree if you've decided that now is the time you're gonna get your hands dirty (in soil) and finally put a real plant in your room for the aesthetic (and take care of it like a real responsible adult!).

But here are some highly rated fake ones just in case you lack a green thumb. We don't judge!

Promising review: "The plant arrived five days early and I could not be more impressed! It arrived packaged in a tall box and was cushioned by foam peanuts. Although some leaves were bent, the plant opened itself up nicely after some time. The plant pot was wrapped in plastic and the soil was moist (repotted in the pictures). You can tell that the nursery took a lot of care to ensure the plant would not only make it through its journey, but also thrive once getting to its destination. This rubber tree arrived in stunning condition and is a terrific addition to my collection!" —Tisoy

Get it from Amazon for $26.

12. Or a real Monstera Deliciosa house plant that comes ready to be planted in soil for anyone who prefers a big leafy plant with major presence rather than succulents or small ones. It'll put you right at peace!

Promising review: "Fit over door easily. Can get several hangers on each hook. Wouldn't hang coats, but T-shirts or PJs, tank tops, light robes, etc. Hung them on oak door and can easily see the kitties!" —Detroit Chick

Get it from Amazon for $11.99.

14. A set of off-white sheer curtains to really open up your room, allow the lovely sunlight to pour in, and still get privacy with a dash of elegance on the side!

Promising review: "These curtains were everything I didn't know I needed! I used two panels in my living room on my french patio doors and they provide a little privacy, but allow so much sunshine in the room. So beautiful and make the space look really elegant! I loved them so much that I bought a second set for my dining room windows too :) For the price point...SO WORTH IT! Elegant and airy!" —Celest Rayanne

Get them from Amazon for $26.99+ (available in three colors and five sizes).

15. A charming vines wall decal that'll transform your bedroom into a fairytale castle or sun-soaked cottage. Your pick!

Amazon

Promising review: "I LOVE how beautiful these are, like hand-painted beads on my little one's closet doors. They look great on a soft sage green background. There's a tiny bit of texture in the paint which you can see through the decal at the right angle, but most often guests assume I painted them myself! The smoother the surface the better, but I would definitely buy these again." —Alexis

Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in two styles).

16. An adjustable FURemover squeegee broom because it attracts pet hair from your carpets like magic. Many reviewers state that not only is this cheaper than an uber-expensive vacuum but it works better than one too! They also mention how it's great because it doesn't scare their pets like the loud noises of a vacuum does. A win-win.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: "Holy grail hair remover. I was super skeptical when I bought the product but let me tell you this thing works! It works better than my vacuum and broom. I use it on my carpet, tile, even my dog's cage, this thing creates static and all the hairs cling to it. I go and use it on my couch; it gets all the dog hair and lint off. Takes a bit of elbow grease but it gets the job done. The length of the pole can be adjusted also. If you're debating getting this totally get it." —Kate

Get it from Amazon for $12.44.

Promising review: "I took a chance and bought this originally as a 'Band-Aid fix' to refinish a desk. I had looked in stores in the contact paper aisles, but all of them were just that...paper. THIS item is actually a thin sheet of vinyl with adhesive, and I ended up liking it so much I bought more and refinished my kitchen countertop with it as well! Highly recommended if you want to change the look of your counters but you don't have the money for a full remodel just yet. It can be cleaned with dish soap and water just like a real countertop." —Z

Get it from Amazon for $5.99+ (available in four sizes).

19. An oh-so-pretty dried eucalyptus wildflower bouquet that'll perk up your space in the oh-so-prettiest way! Yes, it has "bridal" in the title but who says you need to marry to enjoy flowers? 😌

23. A ChomChom pet hair roller if your pet sheds a lot...like a lot, a lot. And you're tired of cleaning up your room after it. Just roll, roll, roll, and watch the fur lift away!

amazon.com

Promising review: "Where has this been all my cat-loving life? Sticky rollers work fine for clothes, but this is the only product that has ever COMPLETELY removed all the cat hair from my bed. I have a long-haired 20-pound tabby and if you run your hands up his back a few times and fling the hair everywhere, it looks like it's snowing — he never stops shedding no matter what I do. After using the ChomChom, I can put on a black dress and roll around on my bed and not get a single hair on me. It's absolutely amazing. Everyone is getting one for Christmas, even if they don't have a pet. I don't care, it's THAT good." —Stephanie

Get it from Amazon for $24.95.

24. A statement-making boho color-block wall decal that'll lighten up your walls without requiring the huge effort of hanging wallpaper or spending hours painting. And no worries, this is removable.
