    1. A pair of super-soft high-waisted leggings so you can lounge around all day and always be comfy as heck.


    Promising review: "I'm officially obsessed with these tights! I am ordering them in every color. They are seriously the softest fabric I have ever worn and the sizing actually fit really well. I was a little worried about the sizing because I am typically a small but these really couldn't have fit any better and they are so comfortable!" —Tonya

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in 20+ colors and two sizes)

    2. A Harry Potter–inspired tea because what else is better than staying home and having a butterbeer-, dragon's blood-, or wolfsbane-flavored tea to accompany your Harry Potter marathon?


    The Butterbeer tea Butter Beer has caramel and chocolate; the Dragon's Blood is a fruit-and-flower tea; Felix Felicis is black tea with vanilla and licorice; Phoenix Tears has South African rooibos and caramel; and Wolfsbane has Japanese sencha, sea buckthorn, and blue cornflower.

    3. An iced coffee maker so what do you know — you don't have to leave your house even for a nice cup of cold brew! Who wins at life? That's right, you.


    Promising review: "This coffee maker is my BEST FRIEND! I use this every day, it's so easy to use! My coffee comes out perfect every time. I'm a cold coffee drinker and I put about 8-10 scoops of freshly ground coffee into the filter. I let it sit overnight and the next morning, I remove the filter and dump the grounds. It makes 4 days' worth of coffee and I love that it's ready to go for me, especially since I wake up at 4:50 a.m. and I need to make my coffee quickly! It's very easy to clean as well. Make sure to remove the rubber linings inside the caps so that you can clean in the crevices. I would recommend rinsing the filter thoroughly as soon as you remove the coffee grounds. If you don't, the gentle filter will begin to "stain" and be hard to wash by hand. If that happens, just throw it in the dishwasher and it comes out good as new!" —Panda

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    4. A small white noise machine that'll soothe you and let you settle into a dreamy daze.


    This is portable and has an app-based remote control, timer, and night light. You can block out sounds like loud neighbors, barking dogs, honking, and more.

    Promising review: "Picked this up because my girlfriend is an insanely light sleeper — every single thing wakes her up in the middle of the night — the click of the thermostat in the living room, the ice-cube maker (inside the fridge!). It turns out the SNOOZ has DRAMATICALLY improved her sleep. Even on the lowest or second-to-lowest setting, she no longer hears me sneak into the bathroom in the middle of the night, or when I get up early to get ready for work. I like the fact that it's so simple, so effective, and efficient." —Amazon Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $79.99 (available in two colors)

    5. A pair of Smoko heated slippers to keep your feet happy and your body cozy.

    Urban Outfitters

    These slippers are soft fleece and USB-powered.

    Promising review: "I use these in my dorm since I have no control over the heater and they really help in a pinch when my feet are cold as I'm writing essays." —OdetteB

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $35 (available in three designs)

    6. A spa bath pillow so when you're busy pampering yourself, your neck and shoulders won't have to suffer.


    Promising review: "This pillow is great. It buffers the tub so that the noise from the jets is minimal. The pillow also cradles your head and neck in a very relaxing position. It allows you to anchor your body so that you don't have to float in the water. The pillow is made with very good materials. The suction cups hold fast throughout the entire bath. The plastic is solid and won't tear unless you are careless removing it from the tub. Heed the instructions on how to remove it from the tub. It's not necessary to remove it after each bath because it does not collect soak or other residue under the pillow, even hard water scum can be easily washed away. I highly recommend this product." —Cartec

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    7. A 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzle that'll give you a reason to stay home all the time because you refuse to let yourself see the light of day until you finish this. The world should understand!


    Promising review: "Challenging but delightful! Love jigsaw puzzles. I am still working on this one. It is challenging but fun to see all the old familiar book titles. Wish I could have a shop like this for real! I have found many parts, and now I need to connect it all!" —Jean Doran

    Get it from Amazon for $15.99.

    8. A nourishing eye cream that uses hibiscus flower, rosehip seed oil, and vitamins C and E to help brighten, hydrate, and tighten your under-eyes so no one will know you stay up all night binge-watching your fave TV shows.

    This is paraben- and cruelty-free, vegan, and has no artificial colors or fragrances.

    Promising review: "Incredible product! Still cannot believe what a difference it has made in the lines and wrinkles around my eyes. I use it twice a day, and actually use it for my entire face and my neck. My skin feels so soft, and lines are disappearing." —Melissa

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

    9. Plus an eye mask pillow that'll help reduce migraines, headaches, and eye strain, and even massage around the eye area so if you're squinting at screens all day, you have a savior.


    Promising review: "I love this product for migraines, tension, headaches. It cools the eye area. It’s incredibly soft if you can’t stand to feel texture while experiencing a migraine. I keep it in a plastic bag in the freezer so it won’t pick up smells. I thinks it’s filled with gel beads to hold the coldness in. It has two hooks to make it tighter if needed. The minute I put it on, I have relief. I don’t take meds for my migraines yet. I am hesitant to go trust route. I turn off the lights and put headphones on and have to lay down. This keeps out all light, even near the nose area. It’s hands-down a miracle." —Jenn

    Get it from Amazon for $13.54.

    10. And an Innisfree lip sleeping mask that uses Jeju green tea powder and green tea seed oil to give you the supplest lips you've ever had — pucker up!


    Promising review: I have extremely dry and peely lips. I love the texture and feel — it’s rich, but not too sticky. In the morning, I can still slightly feel it on my lips. I use it before I go out the door in the morning too. If it came in a squeezable form, I’d use it as a balm throughout the day. I’ve tried Bite and Laneige masks and this my new favorite! I wish it came with an applicator. I’ve been using one I had on hand and it helps me get a good thick coat on before bed." —jesssmccc

    Get it from Sephora for $16.

    11. A fun activity book to help manage anxiety, stress, and let you take a break from the world with pages full of journaling, pictures to color, strange coping methods, and more.


    Promising review: "This book is exactly what it says it is: a big activity book for anxious people! It’s got some great activities inside that totally keep me busy, keep my anxiety in check, and truly is a great time suck to keep my mind focused on the activities and an escape from whatever is consuming me those days. Cannot recommend this book enough!" —Alex

    Get it from Amazon for $10.31.

    12. A Knock Knock self-therapy notepad or a brain dump notepad that'll help you let out all your thoughts and feelings in a lighthearted manner.


    Promising review: "Although this is clearly a humorous tool (to be used with a grain of salt) it's very helpful for calming down when I'm feeling really anxious or concerned over something. Sometimes, after I fill them out, I like to tape them up on my wall. The prompts 'How do you feel?' followed immediately by 'How do you *really* feel?' are very telling and encourage honesty with yourself." —Rachel

    Get them from Amazon: the self-therapy notepad for $9.24 and the brain dump notepad for $8

    13. An antibacterial pillow mist to clean your pillows and bedding so you no longer sleep on dirty pillowcases that can cause acne and wreak havoc on your skin and hair. The calming lavender scent doesn't hurt either!


    Promising review: "LOVE this spray! My husband and I use it every night on our pillows before bed. I suffered from severe acne years ago so now I am so particular about skincare. I used to have to change my pillow case nightly, now I just spray this on before going to bed and I can have peace of mind and wake up with beautiful clear skin! I will definitely be purchasing this product again and definitely recommend it to my fellow skincare freaks!" —Britg

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in two sizes)

    14. A rapid egg cooker that makes six perfect eggs at once so you can spend less time making breakfast and more time dancing to your favorite tunes all around the house.


    It works for hardboiled eggs, poached, and scrambled too!

    Promising review: "If you are on the fence about getting one of these, GET ONE. It really is as easy as it sounds to have a perfectly cooked egg, no guesswork. If you're particular about egg yolks like me and like them soft but not runny or raw, (I timed it, 11 mins. You don't have to time it at all as the buzzer will go off). Just have an ice bath ready next to the cooker and let the eggs sit for a minute or two in there — the shell comes right off. This makes healthy eating a breeze in the morning! Where has this been all my life!??!?" —rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $19.99 (available in five colors).

    15. A set of decorative vines to transform your room into a safe haven and dreamy garden-like space.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "I ordered these vines a couple weeks ago and they came in earlier than expected. They’re really nice quality compared to a lot of other plants/vines I've recently bought. They’re so pretty in my room, I really recommend buying them." —UO Customer

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $14.

    16. A super pretty rose lace chemise set so you can prance around your home like an absolute queen.


    The set comes with the chemise and a matching panty!

    Promising review: "This fit amazing and it's delicate and soft, not itchy like some lace garments." —Yeraldin

    Get it from Yandy for $14.99 (available in red and black, and in plus size for $15.99).

    17. A Homesick candle that smells like summer camp or a pumpkin patch so whether your favorite season is summer or fall, you'll have a way to keep it in your home (and not have to go out to experience it because ugh).


    Summer Camp has notes of green grass, lemon, smoke, jasmine and amber while Pumpkin Patch has notes of nutmeg, ginger, pumpkin and sugar.

    Get them from Amazon: Summer Camp for $24.24 and Pumpkin Patch for $23.83

    18. A Too Cool For School Rules of Mastic IX Cream you can put on every night to help strengthen your skin from moisture loss and environmental stressors, nourish, and hydrate, so you get silky, healthy skin without having to go out to any spas. This cream uses ingredients from the mastic tree, which targets damaged skin! / Via, / Via

    This cream is free of parabens, mineral oil, animal-derived ingredients, and fragrance.

    Promising review: "I have very dry skin that is prone to redness and acne. This is an intensive hydrating cream, and I can notice a difference in my skin after just a few uses. I've been applying this twice daily. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and hydrated. It has really helped with the dryness and lightens the redness on my face. My acne has cleared up some due to the hydration that this cream provides, reducing the dry skin on my face that can clog pores. I love that there are no dyes used and no fragrance, and this cream does not leave a greasy residue at all. My face feels great and refreshed after applying it. It's not too expensive and a little bit of this cream goes a long way. It has taken me a long time to find a face cream that I really like, so I plan to purchase again." —TES

    Get it from Ulta for $8.99.

    19. A quirky pin that'll act as your official introvert certificate so no one can dispute your status.


    Get it from PapaLlama on Etsy for $10.

    Get them from ModCloth for $12.

    21. A pretty celestial journal with gilded pages so you can feel elegant every time you sit down to write.,

    Promising review: "Oh my goodness, where do I start? This journal is PHENOMENAL! It was flawless. The design is gorgeous and barely any ink bleeds through the pages. They are a bit thick, but I personally like the feel of them. They, as well as the book itself, feel strong and durable. I haven't stopped writing in it since! Get this journal. You will NOT regret it!" —Lorriana

    Get it from Amazon for $11.69.

    22. A New York Times Best of the Week crossword puzzle book to give drab weekdays a new meaning: this edition contains 50 medium-level puzzles that'll keep you company when you're all curled up at home.

    23. And a jetted tub cleaner that'll clean your bathtub or Jacuzzi so once you're done with your lovely bath, your tub will be ready for another one the next day.


    Promising review: "I have been very diligent about cleaning our jacuzzi bathtub regularly since we installed it five years ago. Over the last few years I had noticed increasing problems with keeping the tub clean. I was getting green and orange deposits on the bottom of the tub. And the water started smelling bad. I purchased Oh Yuk. The amount of gunk that came out of the jets was truly appalling! It was an orange, sticky, mess. Now I clean my jets regularly with Oh Yuk. The tub stays cleaner and smells so much better! It also has not harmed the bathtub finish or the pump seals in any way. I cannot recommend this product highly enough. Next I want to try their wash machine cleaner. —Lisa

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    24. A fairytale-esque bulb firefly table lamp to up your room's cozy vibes even more so everyone will see exactly why you'd rather just stay home forever.

    27. A non-slip bamboo bathtub tray so you can indulge in all the good things about life: your fave books, candles, snacks, tea, flowers — all of which fit on this tray!


    Promising review: "Only used once so far but item arrived quickly and just as described. I like that this extends wider than most bath caddies. My tub is 42" across from edge to edge and this had room to spare. The rubber feet that came with it ensured that it did not slip while in use. The trays are removable and it was plenty sturdy to hold a 32oz full coffee cup and a novel. Has a slot for your phone. There's a wineglass holder if that's your thing as well." —Staceyrella

    Get it from Amazon for $46.97.
