    1. $150 off a cordless stick vacuum from Dyson that converts to a hand vac and empties without you having to touch all that dust and hair — ew! I have this and it's out of this world for cleaning up kitchen messes, dust under low furniture, carpeted stairs, and so much more.

    Hand holding the stick vacuum

    This vacuum is one of the greatest gifts I have ever been given, period. I feel excited every time I make a mess because it means I get to break out the Dyson. I hate cleaning, but after having this for six months, I can report that I still have fun using this vacuum. I just moved out of an apartment with both carpet and wood floors, and it was a breeze to run through the whole place with this before leaving. It's attachments make it perfect for detail work like baseboards and being able to use it as a hand vac makes it easy to vacuum the stairs. Let me reiterate — IF YOU HAVE STAIRS, THIS VACUUM WILL MAKE IT EASIER TO CLEAN THEM. It's a big investment, but my home is noticeably cleaner all the time now that I own it.

    Get it from Dyson for $299.99 (originally $449.99).

    2. 30% off a gold chain necklace from Bauble Bar to effortlessly add a touch of casual glam to your everyday look.

    My colleague Kayla says: "Chunky gold chain necklaces have really been on trend this summer. I love them because they're kind of simple, but still have a pretty bold style impact. I bought this one because BaubleBar is one of my go-to accessory shops and they had a lot of great options. I like this one because it's so easy to add to a simple T-shirt or sweatshirt and make it look instantly more elevated."

    Get it from BaubleBar for $33.60 (originally $48).

    3. 35% off Hyper Clear Brightening Vitamin C Serum from Hyper Skin that's packed full of 15% vitamin C and vitamin E that will work tirelessly to renew your skin's rough texture, lessen hyperpigmentation, and give you a fabulous overall glow.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    Hyper Skin is a Black woman–owned business. This product is paraben-, sulfate-, phthalate-, and scent-free.

    This is a new product for me, and I'm already hooked! I love a good vitamin C serum and this is one of the best I've tried. It doesn't have the off-putting smell that some serums have and it doesn't feel tacky when it dries. It layers flawlessly under any moisturizer I've used and I can already tell it's working on getting my complexion nice and smooth after I took a long break from using any skincare at all.

    Get it from Hyper Skin for $24.80 (originally $36).

    4. Buy one, get one 70% off candles at Southern Elegance Candle Co — we recommend their Charleston Sweet Tea candle that will make your entire home can smell like crisp, cool summer memories.

    Kayla Boyd / BuzzFeed

    Souther Elegance Candle Co. is a Black woman–owned business based in North Carolina, where they also source their materials from.

    My colleague Kayla says: "This candle was a gift. The company is Black woman-owned and the soy candles are hand-poured. The Charleston Sweet Tea scent reminds me of a summer trip I took to Charleston a few years ago with the friend who gifted it. It smells like berries, flowers, and apples."

    Get it from Southern Elegance Candle Co for $20.

    5. 25% off a Mani System and Winter Polish Collection from Olive & June to step-up your at-home manicure game. You've got some time on your hands — might as well use it to perfect your nail painting skills.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    The set comes with the Poppy nail polish handle holder, cuticle serum, a polish remover pot, a clean up brush, a buffer, nail clippers, a file, the eight winter collection polishes, and a glossy top coat. The polishes are vegan and cruelty-free.

    I'm not usually a perfectionist about doing my nails, but once I got this kit, I really had fun putting in the effort. The winter colors are stunning, and the cuticle serum really helped my dried-out winter hands. I didn't really own any nail tools except for clippers, so it was nice to get everything in one fell swoop. The polish remover pot is now my preferred method of polish removal, and the detail brush came in clutch, especially when painting using a dark color with my non-dominant hand. At the end of the day, this kit didn't turn me into a masterful manicurist, but it sure helped and was fun to try! A great gift for yourself or a loved one.

    Get the winter collection from Olive & June for $70.50 (originally $94).

    6. 40% off a large leather transport tote from Madewell that's come to be one of Madewell's signature items and one of my most-used bags. I've owned and loved this thing for going on six years and it's showing no signs of slowing down.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    Random canvas totes may come and go, but nothing beats having a permanent, go-to bag. I've had this since college when I used it to carry my heavy load of books, my laptop, and other English major paraphernalia, but it's transitioned flawlessly into my adult life where — OK — I still use it to carry books and my computer. The leather is getting a lovely patina and the structure of the bag is as strong as the day I got it. It has one zippered interior pocket which is perfect for keys, cards, or any other tiny necessities. I received this as a gift, so I can confirm that it makes a good one! My bag is even monogrammed, which made the gift all the more special. (You can add monogramming to almost any Madewell leather or denim item for $10 or for free if you're a Madewell Insider!) If you can't spring for this wondrous tote now, I absolutely recommend putting it on your wishlist.

    Get it from Madewell for $100.80 (originally $168, available in three colors).

    Enter code "THXINTERNET" at checkout.

    7. $50 off an Always Pan from Our Place designed with a super nonstick surface, a vented top, a steaming basket, and a spoon rest handle *with* an included wooden spoon that serves so many functions they'll truly want to use it *Snape voice* ~always~.

    Our Place is a WOC-founded brand focussed on inventive cookware and kitchen products. You can braise, sear, steam, strain, sauté, fry, and boil in the Always Pan, and it serves as a fry pan, sauté pan, steamer, skillet, saucier, saucepan, nonstick pan, spatula, and spoon rest all in one! It comes with a steamer basket and is also dishwasher-safe.

    My colleague Mal says: "I own this pan and I'm pretty sure I'll never need to own another ever again. The spoon rest is genius, cleaning is a cinch, and it cooks all my ambitious Pinterest attempts perfectly."

    Get it from Our Place for $95 (originally $145, available in six colors).

    Enter code "SUPERSALE" at checkout. Also, just a note that most of the colors will now ship mid-January to February.

    8. 20% off a pair of Classic Chelsea Boots from Nisolo, because finding a go-to pair of fashionable boots that are actually comfortable is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that feels like pure magic.

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    These are great everyday boots that look amazing with basically everything and really ~elevate~ whatever you pair them with. They took a little time to break in around the toe box for me, but it really paid off, as they now fit like a a shoe that just fits really well, I guess. I've had these for probably close to two years, have walked in them *so* much, and they're still in incredible shape. I anticipate getting at least two more years out of them as-is — they don't even seem close to needing to be resoled yet, but I definitely will do so when the time comes. They are definitely an investment, but considering I used to pay about half as much for boots that would poop out after one year, I consider them well worth it. I recommend going up a half size from what you usually wear for the perfect fit.

    Get them from Nisolo for $128 (originally $200, available in sizes 5–11 and four colors).

    Enter code "CM20" at checkout.

    9. 20% off a Be Gentle, Be Kind Hair Care Pack from Briogio that clarifies and revives dehydrated tresses with a nutrient-rich, vitamin-packed formula — not to mention it smells *chef's kiss* fantastic.

    large bottles of yellow shampoo and conditioner with 2 other briogeo products
    Sam Tomaszewski / BuzzFeed

    The set comes with one bottle of shampoo and one bottle of conditioner.

    My colleague Sam says: "I started using Briogeo products about a month ago thanks to a recommendation from my former roommate. Everything I've tried from them smells D I V I N E. This shampoo and conditioner set is super gentle on my color-treated hair — it feels much healthier and shinier than before. I'm also a big fan of their heat protectant cream (again, smells SO. GOOD.) And I love that this Black-owned haircare brand has products with plenty of different hair types and textures in mind!"

    Get it from Briogeo for $38.40 (originally $48).

    10. 50% off a groovy orange print by theebouffants on Society6 that will turn wherever you hang it into the coolest corner of your apartment.

    print of illustrated oranges with faces in a bowl

    My colleague Kit says: "My 2020 goal that I’m still holding onto is to finish the walls in my bedroom. I love bright colors and I have a poppin’ wall color and now I need art to throw a few other colors in there. I love supporting Black artists and when I saw these sassy oranges, I knew they needed to come home with me. It’s the orange peel bayang for me."

    Get it from Society6 for $22.50+ (originally $44.99+, available in four sizes).

    11. 20% off Paula's Choice 2% BHA liquid exfoliant if you want to step-up your game when it comes to gentle, skin-refining exfoliation and try some of the most on-trend products. This is the best of the best, in my and some other BuzzFeed shopping writers' opinions, and is the kind of luxurious beauty product that makes the perfect gift for yourself or others.

    the product's grey bottle

    This is my #1 liquid exfoliator, hands-down. If you're not familiar with liquid exfoliators, basically a combination of BHA and salicylic acids work together to get rid of dead skin cells and clear pores, making way for bright, new skin underneath. It sounds scary, but it really just feels like rubbing some liquid on your face with a cotton pad — in fact, this product is gentle enough to use daily. I find it helps control my hormonal acne and lessen scarring from previous breakouts. I also like to use it on my neck and chest, especially after I get out of a post-workout shower, to totally get rid of any dirt, sweat, or general yuckiness.

    My colleague Marquaysa says: "For a long time, I wasn't using exfoliants because my skin is so sensitive and many exfoliants have fragrance in them and/or other allergens. That said, this Paula's Choice formula is THE ONE. Here's my routine in order: Makeup remover, cleanser, toner, Paula's Choice exfoliant, serum, moisturizer. <--- There's my master skincare routine that pretty much helps prevent my pores from being clogged by makeup and really anything else. I trust it so much and this is a special feat since my skin is WILDLY sensitive."

    Get it from Paula's Choice for $8+ (originally $10+, available in two sizes).

    12. 40% off a pair of curvy-fit skinny jeans from Madewell with a narrower waist and more room in the hips and thighs to reduce any gapping you normally experience. Owning jeans that are cute, comfortable, well-fitted, *and* match everything is finally possible — we really can have it all.

    AnaMaria Glavan / BuzzFeed, Madewell

    My colleague AnaMaria says: "Now, if you share my problem of finding quality jeans that fit both your waist and thighs, then Madewell's curvy jeans line *is* the solution — they're specifically designed for hourglass figures that scoff at the idea of a belt. I own four pairs of denim from this line and I wear them, um, religiously. They're on the pricier side, but I cannot stress enough how worth it they are. I've washed all of my Madewell curvy jeans about 1,000 times each and they still fit *and* look exactly as they did when I first got 'em. No fading."

    Get them from Madewell: the Curvy High-Rise Skinny Jeans for $76.80 (originally $128, available in sizes 23–37, as well as petite, tall, and taller sizes).

    Enter code "THXINTERNET" at checkout.

    13. 20% off a pair of Beats Powerbeats Pro wireless earphones on Amazon with up to nine hours of listening time, adjustable over-the-ear hooks for stay-in-place comfort, and sweat and water-resistance so you can feel confident mid-workout.

    Emma McAnaw / BuzzFeed

    My colleague Emma says: "These Beats headphones have been a real game-changer for me. The sound quality is SO MUCH better than my cheap headphones, which has actually really improved my experience at the gym. I find it easier to stay motivated now that my music is *crystal clear* (and I can't hear myself wheezing on the treadmill). I was worried it would be hard to connect their Bluetooth settings to my phone and computer, but the whole process is super self-explanatory. And they stay connected for pretty long distances — I can walk away from my phone to the other side of the room without interrupting my music. They can hold a charge for a pretty long time, as long you always store them in their charging case. I usually use them for a full work day without needing to re-charge them. Plus, they're really comfy in my ears and never fall out, thanks to their clever hook design (if you have comfort issues with Apple headphones, these will probably feel better)!"

    Get them from Amazon for $199.95+ (originally $249.95, available in seven colors).

    14. $10 off a six- or twelve-month gift subscription to Book of the Month so you always have a bestseller to look forward to. Their book selections are awesome and you'll breathlessly anticipate the day they drop — I know I do!

    Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    I adore my Book of the Month subscription! It keeps me sharp, researching the new titles and always looking forward to a new read. It also makes an incredible gift! Each month you get your choice of one of five titles with an option to skip a month and save your credit whenever you please. For the full story on why I love Book of the Month (especially as a gift) head to "I'm Calling It — A Book Of The Month Subscription Is The Best Gift To Give In 2020."

    15. 30% off 100% Squalane Oil from Biossance that hydrates your skin so well, it's incredible you haven't been a raisin without it. Its plant-based formula locks in the moisture your skin craves and also helps reduce redness.

    hand holding product bottle with pump top

    The oil is paraben-free, cruelty-free, fragrance-free, and vegan.

    My colleague Bek says: "This is the stuff of dreams, people! I put it on my face at night after serum and before my night cream, and wake up with bouncy, bright skin. The first time I used it, I had overnight results. I am constantly yelling about this product to everyone who will listen; I even convinced my dermatologist to try it."

    Get it from Biossance for $5.60+ (originally $8+, available in three sizes).

    16. 20% off a set of percale sheets from Parachute for anyone who's been wondering which pair of internet famous sheets they should actually invest in. Several of my colleagues love these and are always talking about them, and ya know what? I trust them!

    white sheet set on bed

    The set includes a fitted sheet and a pillowcase set, as well as an optional top sheet. The prices below reflect a set with a top sheet, because I figured you'd want it! :)

    My colleague Maitland says: "I recently switched from a set of very old, pilling sheets to these babies, and.......the difference could not be larger. These sheets are SO SOFT, I just want to burrow into them. They wash up beautifully, and I have never loved being in bed more (and...I already loved being in bed). I can honestly say I've never slept in more comfortable sheets."

    Get them from Parachute for $135+ (originally $169+, available in sizes twin–California king and six colors).

    17. 25% off some whimsical socks from Sock Candy, because your feet absolutely deserve to express themselves loudly as they please.

    My colleague Katy says: "I LOVE quirky socks, and I already have way too many. But when fun fashion influencer @layersofchic_ offered to send me some of her bold new sock line, Sock Candy, I couldn't say no and now I'm totally in love. The blue and pink leopard pair have to be my faves, but the prints are all so unique and the fit is so COMFY!!! Tons of stretch and they feel like really great quality."

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed

    My colleague Abby says: "These sneakers from Avre are my current favorite pair of shoes. I've had them for a couple months now, and I wear them almost every day. Since they're made of knit fabric, they stretch right onto your foot and are super comfortable. Plus, the chunky heel adds a bit of extra style. I mostly wear them with leggings and joggers (because that’s what I live in), but I have worn them with jeans too. They do run big, so I would size down a half size. I also love that they’re made from recycled water bottles, as I’ve been trying to be a little more conscious with my purchases."

    Get them from Avre for $94.25 (originally $145, available in sizes 5–10).

    19. 20% off a Spice Subscription from Piquant Post to give your everyday meals a little kick, zest, and — well — spice!

    My colleague Kayla says: "This monthly spice subscription has sparked a fire deep down in my cooking soul. The spice blend combinations are incredible, and each spice comes with a corresponding recipe. I just made this cauliflower curry and my life will never be the same. I want to cook anything and everything with these spices."

    BuzzFeed / Kayla Boyd

    My colleague Kayla says: "One of my biggest problems with liquid lipstick is that a lot of them will flake and peel. This Tarteist Quick Dry Matte Lip Paint does not! It dries super fast and then you can barely feel it on your lips at all. It can be a tad dry so I just like to make sure my lips are moisturized before I apply it. It stays on all day long and I'm obsessed with the neutral shades 'Exposed' and 'Festival.' They both have a pinkish tint and make great everyday lip colors."

    My colleague Bek says: "You've heard of silk pillowcases and the wonders they work on hair (less friction, baby!), but have you considered silk SCRUNCHIES? These luxurious hair ties are A Bit Much, but honestly worth the splurge. They're super soft and don't pull on my delicate strands when I remove them. They also just look a lot more polished than my usual tie-dye and leopard print ones."

    Get a three-pack from Brooklinen for $25.60 (originally for $32).

    22. 30% off a pair of Soul S-FIT wireless earbuds on Amazon so you're not tethered directly to your phone whenever you're trying to run and listen to your pump-up music.

    Remember to clip the coupon before checking out to receive the discount!

    My colleague Abby says: "I’ve been an avid Obé Fitness user for over a year now, but have def upped my workout game since quarantine started. I usually try and squeeze in a workout early in the morning, during lunch, or right after I’m done with work. And since I’m never home alone, my workout used to be a little disruptive. That is, until I invested in these wireless headphones. I liked these ones because they’re not terribly expensive (compared to others on the market) and have some features specifically designed for workout (water and sweat proof, stay put in your ears, and are noise cancelling). They connect to my computer and phone super easily and bring my workout right into my ears so I can get it done quietly."

    Get them from Amazon for $55.99 (originally $79.99, available in six colors).

    23. 25% off a tube of Cloud Paint liquid blush from Glossier so you can enjoy the easy-to-blend gel formula and adorable color that's made this one of Glossier's most beloved products.

    Glossier, Rachel Dunkel / BuzzFeed

    Cloud Paint is simply heavenly. Its sheer yet buildable coverage allows you to create a barely-there natural flush *or* a full-on blush moment depending on your mood. I use the shade Puff when I want to feel like a pretty 'lil cloud, aka with my everyday natural makeup look, and the shade Dawn (pictured on the upper left from when I had a literal mullet) when I want everyone to bask in the glory of my cheeky summer glow. Don't be afraid to invest in the bolder shades! The gel formula makes it super easy to just dab and blend a little bit of product, and — unlike a powder blush — it's simple to back off a bit after applying if you need to. A little goes a long way, so the price it more than worth it. Cloud Paint layers pretty well over liquid foundation, but I find it thrives most on bare skin because, well, Glossier.

    Get it from Glossier for $13.50 (originally $18, available in eight colors).

    24. 25% off Threeway Solid Lip Oil from Deck of Scarlet that gives your pout a heavy dose of moisture all while also delivering lasting color payoff and amazing shine. What CAN'T this one lip product do?!

    Deck of Scarlet

    On days I wear makeup, I have the hardest time deciding between lipstick and lipgloss. With this lip oil, I don't have to! It has the unbeatable color payoff of a lipstick and the irresistible shine of a gloss, with an additional benefit of moisturizing. With bolder shades I haven't found that it "runs" at all, which I was a bit afraid of with an oil formula. But nope! Stays in place and vibrant for a long while.

    The cleanser is formulated without parabens, silicones, or sulfates and is vegan and cruelty-free.

    I've never used a more effective overnight treatment — I put a visible layer over any budding pimples before bed, and usually by morning they're calmed and quelled.

    26. 30% off an All-In-One Cleaning Concentrate from Pur Home for anyone out there who wants to simply their cleaning routine, while staying natural and eco-friendly.

    Pur Home is a Black- and woman-owned company whose cleaning products are natural, eco-friendly and made with only plant-derived ingredients. Their products contain no laureth sulfates, petroleum solvent, parabens, ethers, synthetic fragrances, dyes, or ammonia. This cleaner is also biodegradable!

    I have and love this all-in-one concentrate. If you're hand-washing dishes, it's perfect for washing a sink-full in one fell swoop. If you're mopping, it's so easy to just dollop some in a bucket. If you're out of laundry detergent or just want to use this as your main detergent, just a tablespoon will do. It smells divine, is gentle, and best of all it's eco-friendly! You can't go wrong with this product.

    Get it from Pur Home for $23.10 (originally $33, available in five scents).

    27. 41% off a Soda Stream Fizzi on Amazon so you can make your own seltzer at home without having to lug cases and cases of the good stuff home from the grocery store.

    Abby Kass / BuzzFeed

    The kit comes with the machine, a 60L Co2 cylinder, and a reusable carbonating bottle.

    My colleague Abby says: "I got my Fizzi last fall and have basically been using it every day. I like this version because it's manual, which means it doesn't require electricity, so it doesn't have to be plugged into the wall. Instead of having to buy cans or bottles of seltzer all the time, I can make it in seconds in my apartment and never run out. I also love how much better for the environment it is — I've reduced my plastic and aluminum consumption by a lot. And I can personally attest that it's a great gift because after telling my mom about mine, she was intrigued, so I got her one for Christmas last year — and she has used it almost every day over the past year!"

    Get it from Amazon for $49.99 (originally $85.19).

    28. 20% off a Tushy bidet attachment if you want to pamper your patootie. This'll leave you with a cleaner crack and help reduce the amount of TP you use.


    My colleague Melanie says: "This is the bidet I use, and I 100% recommend to my friends, family, and to you, dear reader. Installation was pretty simple; from start to poop it took about 15 minutes. The sensation say the least but you definitely get used to it. In fact, I recently moved apartments and it's taken me awhile to hook up the bidet (I'm a procrastinator, OK?!). Oh how I've missed my bidet during this time (and I'm sure my butt feels the same way). But seriously, I cannot stress how life-changing getting a bidet is.
