    8. A round wall mirror that's a nice dupe for a CB2 mirror at a third of the price. It'll look great paired with that new solid wood end table.

    15. A Manduka X yoga mat with extra cushioning that's three inches longer than their standard mats, to give your downward dog a little breathing room. Also, it has a nonstick surface reviewers swear by.

    18. An OXO swivel peeler that is a very ~appealing~ step up from a metal peeler.

    19. A 30-oz double-wall stainless steel tumbler to keep your drinks hot or cold for ~hours~. It offers the same performance as the comparable Yeti cup for a third of the price. It's vacuum-insulated to keep drinks hot for four hours or cold for 20 hours (wow!) and it's BPA-free.

    20. A Shark steam mop that'll leave your floor cleaner than if you used a mop and bucket.

    24. And an Edison bulb to go with that new lamp, with the warm glow of old-fashioned filaments and LED efficiency. Its a ~delightful~ improvement over a regular bulb.

    25. A silicone oven liner with a nonstick surface that's a no-brainer for making your life easier, because ovens are a pain to clean, and frozen pizzas have to be cooked right on the rack and ~always~ drip cheese everywhere.

    30. A Scrub Mommy, from the makers of Scrub Daddy, with a sponge and non-scratch scrubbing pad that works much, much better than a regular kitchen sponge and lasts way longer without getting smelly and gross. And unlike the Scrub Daddy, this one has holes in it for easy gripping and a fun smiley mouth that's also great for detailing silverware.

    31. And a Joseph Joseph expandable dish rack that's thoughtfully designed and classy as heck. It slides open to hold more dishes and people love the high-quality materials and rust-prevention coating on the metal bits.
