    1. A pair of Ugg shearling-lined boots to keep your toesies nice and cozy all winter long.

    5-star reviews: 5,962

    These come in whole sizes only, but run a little big. If you're between sizes, order a half size down from what you normally wear.

    Promising review: "These Ugg boots are my new best friend. They are so comfortable, warm and stylish. ☺️❤️ I ordered a half size smaller than I usually wear and fits perfectly." —MyUggies

    Price: $124.96+ (originally 169.95+; available in women's sizes 5-12 in whole sizes only and six colors)

    2. A throw blanket so plush and soft people either fight the rest of their household for it, or buy, like, 11 of them. It makes sense—a lot of people believe this is *the* comfiest blanket out there. Made of 100% polyester, this throw is machine-washable and durable enough to stay fuzzy-fresh wash after wash.

    5-star reviews: 1,373

    Promising review: "Six of them are in my home because we all fight over them. The other five I bought as gifts. I think I might have a slight addiction to them, ha! I bought seven last year during the anniversary sale and four more this year. I have washed them over and over and they are still super soft. I can't say enough good things about these blankets! They are the BEST!" —Rose0614

    Price: $39.50 (available in eleven colors)

    3. A easy-to-clean reversible faux leather tote big enough for your commute and cheap enough to be a total no-brainer for anyone who appreciates fashionable flexibility in their life. It also comes with reversible a wristlet!


    5-star review: 1,218

    Promising review: "I use this bag on my commute every day — I throw in my heels, my lunch, and frankly whatever else I want because it's awesome! It's big enough for really anything without being unseemly and I love the reversible feature... not that I'm always pausing to think about what goes with my outfit... but when I do, I love having options. Also, this bag is pretty durable. My very first day with this purse, I realized that my lunch had leaked all over the bottom. I was so sad, but then it wiped up and nothing stained AT ALL! Amazing. It did smell a little funny after that, but the smell has gone away." —LoveNordy84

    Price: $49 (available in two color combinations)

    4. A Bobbi Brown kohl-pigmented mascara that's a perfect compliment to your smoky eye look. Reviewers agree it's easy to apply, really lengthens and thickens in just a coat or two, keeps your lashes separate without clumping, AND it doesn't smudge. C'est magnifique!

    5-star reviews: 389

    Maybe it can change your life like it did mine. True story: I told my precious neighbor I was unsure about transitioning, and she sat me down and did my lashes with her treasured tube of this ~exact~ mascara, held up a hand mirror to my face and asked me how I felt. I looked gorgeous, and consequently never looked back.

    Sentimentality aside, I've now used this mascara for years, and tried *so* many other ones, and nothing else comes close.

    Promising review: "This is my favorite mascara, and I have been using it for several years. What I like about it is that it gives my lashes the right amount of length and thickness with just two coats. Some mascaras just lengthen, and you have skinny, spidery lashes, but no thickness. Other mascaras just thicken and clump, but don't lengthen. I don't have to put much effort into making my lashes look their best with this mascara. I also love the brush. It's the perfect size and thickness, and seems to grab all my skinny, short lashes and lengthen them. The product almost feels like a waterproof mascara, but it's not waterproof, but lasts all day until I remove it in the evening." —Happiness

    Price: $32

    5. A Crème de la Mer moisturizing cream that's earned itself some zealous fans, many of whom have used it for years and rave about its fountain-of-youth power to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. It's a splurge for sure, but reviewers swear it's worth every penny.

    5-star reviews: 1,551

    Promising review: "I purchased La Mer Moisturizing Cream after asking a close friend of mine how she manages to look like she's in her forties even though she's in her mid-sixties. She said that she has been using La Mer ever since she worked at Nordstrom years ago. Just turning forty myself, I began to see a lot of my tiny lines get a little bit thicker and linger after I laughed or scowled so I had to do something. This stuff is awesome. Putting it on lightly in the morning and night, I noticed a difference in a couple of weeks. My lines haven't completely disappeared but they've become less and aren't as noticeable due to the product leveling out my pH as well. My face also looks and feels firmer. I have sensitive skin and this does not make me break out at all. It has a pleasant scent, is lightweight and feels wonderfully refreshing. Also, a little goes a long way with this cream which is definitely a plus since it is on the high end...but so worth it! Love this product!" —Bunny333

    Price: $95+ (available in four sizes)

    6. A pair of Nike Air Force 1s that people really love. They're timeless, they've got clout, and they go with just about everything. It's easy to see why these are so popular.

    A model wearing the shoes in white

    5-star reviews: 710

    Promising review: "The all-white Nike Air Force 1 is by far the most affordable high fashion shoe on the market. The shoe goes with any outfit you can think of and looks amazing. If you are interested in buying a pair, do not hesitate! It's the shoe on the market, and I definitely will be buying more pairs in the future." —JoshCookin

    Price: $90 (available in men's sizes 6-18 and four colors)

    Looking for women's sizes? They're available here for the same price in sizes 5–12 and three colors (including mango on white, which I think are pretty snazzy). Oh, and the women's-sized version has 228 5-star reviews of its own. Not too shabby!

    7. A real mulberry silk pleated face covering available in five chic colors and reviewers swear will leave your makeup underneath intact, so you can social distance in style. It's got adjustable ear loops and metal nose pieces, dual-layer fabric with a cotton lining that's acne-friendly, and is absolutely machine washable.

    Three models wearing the face covering in different colors

    5-star reviews: 225

    Type Of Fit: Adjustable ear loops

    Pocket For Filter: No

    Fabric Type: Silk and cotton

    Shipping Time: Standard

    Promising review: "This mask feels really nice against the skin and doesn’t tug at my makeup underneath it which is a plus! It holds up well in the wash if you put it in a delicates bag and air dry. It’s also nice that it comes with a bunch of extra metal nose pieces. It feels nice and I haven’t noticed any new breakouts since using it!" —ichen

    Price: $39 (available in five colors)

    8. A Fjällräven Kånken water-resistant backpack that's as cute as it is versatile. It's got great features like snap-together handles, exterior zip and slip pockets, and it easily fits a 13" laptop. Reviewers adore how easy it is to use, how much you can squeeze into it, and that the water-resistant Vinylon fabric is super easy to clean.

    A model sporting the backpack in Pastel Lavender

    5-star reviews: 391

    Promising review: "Love this pack! I was very surprised at how much this bag could carry comfortably. My running shoes are huge, and everything fit beautifully, along with my reflective thingies, running watch, music, etc. I managed to get red Navajo sandstone allover the bag, and it just wiped off. The straps are sturdy and easy to throw on. I love, love, love the straps on top. They fold out of the way when you're opening the bag, and they are great when you're picking the bag up. Simple lines, simple construction. All over, a great bag. Kinda wish I had one more! Very versatile." —Kristanzia

    Price: $80

    9. A pair of Nordstrom Lingerie pajamas designed with just the right thickness, oh-so-soft, machine washable, and made in a factory that supports women worker empowerment through HERproject's workplace-based interventions for health, financial inclusion, and gender equality.

    A model wearing the pajamas, in Navy Peacoat

    5-star reviews: 1,168

    Heads up! These run a little big, so order down a size if you're between sizes.

    Promising review: "I was looking for pajamas that would last and look and feel great and these definitely meet the high expectations I had. These pajamas are soft, thick enough to be warm, but also comfortable under covers. I got the blue striped pajamas. They feel as soft as a silk but they are cotton and wash really well. I am very happy with my purchase." —JDnordstrom

    Price: $39+ (originally $65; available in women's sizes XXS—XXL and eleven colors)

    10. A pair of adiddas Originals NMD_R1 sneakers with literally thousands of five-star reviews, many of which say are these are the comfiest shoes people have ever owned. Your feet deserve to be pampered!

    The sneakers in Ash Pearl

    5-star reviews: 5,246

    The sizing on this shoe runs big. A lot of reviewers suggest that you order a half or full size down.

    Promising review: "They are super comfortable, like walking on air. This is the best shoe I have bought in ages!" —Alphatina

    Price: $130+ (available in women's sizes 5-11 and six colors)

    By the way, these shoes are specifically designed to be unisex, but men's and women's sizes are sold separately and available in different colors. For the same price, you can pick up a pair in men's sizes 4–14 and six colors here. The men's-sized shoes have 2,448 five-star reviews, in case you were wondering.

    11. A Barefoot Dreams CozyChic circle cardigan so comfy people wear it every day. Reviewers agree that it's good for around the house but can also be dressed up, and the fit is just right—not too loose and not too tight, especially on the arms.

    A model wearing the cardigan in Pewter/Pearl

    5-star reviews: 2,943

    Promising review: "Almost embarrassed to say that I have worn this sweater nearly every day since receiving it. It is absolutely lovely, cozy and snuggly. The arms are not tight for me, like other reviewers have said (and my arms are not skinny/tiny either). I am ordering a second one and believe this sweater is totally worth the price. Oh, also love the length and that I can wear it out and about." —CMiniNC

    Price: $116 (available in sizes XS/S–L/XL and ten colors)

    12. A Dyson Supersonic hair dryer that's so powerful you can dry your hair in no time flat. Many reviewers have complimented this lightweight wonder for how gently it dries, even though it works so much faster than a regular one. Miraculous!

    The hairdryer, in Black/Nickel

    5-star reviews 1,687

    Promising review: "My hair is damaged from bleaching and hella curly and thick. I had given up on drying my hair. It took up too much time, left my hair dry and frizzy, and I could never really get it dry enough. I have used this one time and have immediately seen a difference. It dries quickly and thoroughly and the shine and smoothness factor was boosted 200%. I was able to get my hair very straight with just a paddle brush and minimal effort. Plus my hair is so soft right now! The attachments are nice, I like the magnetic hold. This was the gift I didn't know I needed. I look forward to using it." —Violetrosekitty

    Price: $399 (available in three colors)

    13. And! A deep-conditioning hair mask from Briogio (a Black-owned business!) that reviewers gush over because it really works and the results are utterly transformative.

    A person holding a container of the hair mask

    5-star reviews: 1,965

    It's free of sulfates, phthalates, parabens, petrochemicals, mineral oil, silicone, talc, DEA, dyes and gluten, in case you were wondering.

    Promising review: "I've been using this product once a week for a year and my hair has gone through a complete transformation! I used to have some intense hair loss and my hair seemed to be stuck at one length, but after I started using this mask my hair started to grow again and the hair loss was instantly gone. I'm talking about huge amounts, almost enough to form a tennis ball. After the first use my hair stopped falling out and only a ping-pong ball–sized ball of hair fell out after the second use. After the third time only few strands. You can't imagine how happy I was!" —Headyseoul

    Price: $9+ (available in two sizes)

    14. A pair of Spanx faux leather leggings with street style magic and a fit reviewers just adore.

    5-star reviews: 2,223

    Promising review: "If you want the go to leggings of the season and year you need these leggings. I can’t say enough about these! Please get them you will be so sorry if you don’t. They fit like a glove!" —Princesstas

    Price: $98

    15. Or, a pair of Zella Live-In high-waisted leggings that are comfy as heck and even better than their Lululemon equivalents for half the price. The have literally THOUSANDS of five-star reviews.

    A model wearing the leggings, in black, with matching black and white shoes

    5-star reviews: 5,343

    Promising review: "I’ve had these for almost a year now and I cannot day enough good things! I live in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado, and I mostly do outdoor activities in these. I rock climb, hike Colorado's tallest mountains, scramble over ridges, run trails, and more in these and they never fail. They’re never too hot, they truly do wick sweat away, and NEVER ride down. Even on twelve-mile hikes, I don’t have to pull them up once. They’re better than my Lululemon Wunder Under legging. Personally I sized down, by the way" —Lolosilver12

    Price: $59

    16. A pair of unstructured Tony Burch Minnie Travel Ballet Flats reviewers praise for being incredibly comfortable right out of the box.

    The flats in Daybreak Daisy/Perfect Black

    5-star reviews: 2,611

    Promising review: "I'm a huge Tory Burch fans flats and the Reva flats are my favorite. These Minnie Travel flats look the same as the Revas but have a different sole and upper material which makes them so comfy and require no time to break in. Because the material is different they don't feel quite as structured as the Revas. But what they lack in structure they make up for in comfort. These Minnie Travel Tory flats are certainly a must have pair of Torys." —Torybri

    Price: $136.90+ (originally $228+; available in women's sizes 4-13 and 18 colors)

    17. A large nylon Longchamps Le Pilage bag with leather accents that carries A TON, has a nice strap drop that won't catch on your winter coat, and is waterproof enough for whatever surprises your commute might throw at you.

    A model wearing the tote, in blck

    5-star reviews: 1,366

    Promising review: "I love it! I find the shoulder straps very comfortable, and they will soften more over time. This is a very nice strap drop that can be worn over a coat with no problem. The Longchamp LP is such a great care-free bag, it's light weight, stylish, and most of all waterproof, so no worries in the rain. I have seven Longchamp totes and look forward to purchasing more colors!" —Cynt

    Price: $145 (available in three colors)

    18. A pair of Hunter rainboots for kids that are simply ADORABLE and will keep even the most gregarious guttersnipe's feetsies safe, clean, and dry.

    The boots in a variety of colors

    5-star reviews: 950

    Promising review: "Just ordered my son's second pair of boots and he loves them. They are very comfortable and extremely durable. They hold up to daily use throughout the fall/winter and beyond because my son refuses to take them off! Luckily they are even cute with shorts! A must for rainy weather, they are also a great way to keep the feet/socks/pants clean at parks, especially when there is mulch or mud on the ground. Super easy to clean up, too. I think they run about one size large, but good to have room for thicker winter socks." —Jgirl561

    Price: $58

    19. A Kate Spade 12-karat gold-plated initial pendant necklace – it'll make a perfect gift for your someone special, or yourself. It has an adjustable chain seventeen inches in length with a three-inch extender that reviewers love, and signature Kate Spade mini-charms near the lobster clasps.

    The pendant necklace, sporting the letter R

    5-star reviews" 696

    Whether you celebrate Valentine's or Anna Howard Shaw Day, this is sure to delight your someone special.

    Promising review: "It's a lovely, simple necklace with a personal touch. The quality of the product is very good, sparkly and with the Kate Spade mini charms near the clasp. I was looking for a classy and sleek initial pendant necklace and this is the one! I am very happy with the purchase and highly recommend the product." —Azebron

    Price: $58 (available in 18 versions with letters A–T)

    20. A North Face Metropolis II 550 fill down parka to keep the chill at bay when it's cold out. It's machine-washable, has a water-repellent polyester/nylon blend outer, and like a lot of reviewers I can personally attest that it's the best coat I've ever worn.

    A model wearing the coat in New Taupe Green

    5-star reviews: 211

    I live in upstate New York, which is basically a frozen wasteland this year. I bought one of these to keep me nice and cozy, and boy does it. I definitely recommend it!

    The cut's on the tighter side in some places. I got my normal size and found it was OK with just a sweater, but when layering it was little close in the chest. I reordered a size up, and the fit is snug enough to keep me warm, but still leaves adequate room to layer. A lot of reviewers had the same experience.

    Promising review: "I'd been on the fence for years about purchasing this jacket. After all my friends and family told me how great it was, I decided to make the purchase. I love it and will totally recommend to others. It's very breathable but will keep you very warm in cold weather, or snow. It’s also water resistant so it stays nice and dry Its nice and tight but with room to wear a sweater under, though a bit tight in the hip area (for me). If you prefer loose jackets go up a size." —Rania151

    Price: $299 (available in women's sizes XS–XXL and three colors)

    21. A Sweaty Betty Stamina medium-impact sports bra that's sure to become your new go-to when you hit the gym, or for all the time. This easy-wearing bra is seamless and made of machine-washable moisture-wicking fabric designed to minimize chafing.

    A model sports the bra in Fern Green Marl

    5-star reviews: 390

    Promising review: "I brought this bra in the amazing pink and now have every color! I wanted something that was going to fit me well and not be too tight because I do a lot of weight training and these are perfect for just that. It's the most comfortable bra I have ever worked out in, so much so I wear them every day!" —Asha12

    Price: $40 (available in sizes XS–XL and twelve colors)

    22. A digital picture frame to display all your treasured memories without cluttering your home.

    The frame in slate, shown on a credenza

    5-star reviews: 917

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these frames! I have a lot of travel, special occasion and family photos, but not enough space to display them all. This frame solves that issue and its sleek design works with my home décor. I plan to purchase more as holiday gifts for my parents and in-laws, especially since I can preload photos. It's a great way for them to enjoy photos of the grandkids!" —Nordstrom Reviewer

    Price: $259 (originally $299.99; available in two colors)

    23. A petite portable wireless Bose Bluetooth speaker that has big and rich sound, despite its diminutive size. Also, it's scratch-resistant and water-resistant, perfect for the shower or if you want to take it singin' in the rain.

    5-star reviews: 500

    Promising review: "This has sound quality for such a small device—it has decent base and gets pretty loud, It's great for lounging around, showers, and to take anywhere. A great purchase! —Jessa17

    Price: $99 (available in three colors)

    24. A wide-mouth 32-ounce Hydro Flask reviewers claim is better than a YETI and will keep your liquids hot for six hours or cold for twenty-four. This will quickly become a cherished accessory. It's important to stay hydrated!

    A person who has taken their Hydro Flask onto a boat

    5-star reviews: 255

    Hello, it's me, everyone's mom, telling you to please drink more water. This could help.

    I know from experience. Like a lot of trans* folks on HRT one of my meds is a serious diuretic, and I refuse to give up coffee, so I was dehydrated ALL THE TIME until my darling partner bought me a Hydro Flask that I now take with me everywhere. I feel so much better drinking enough water thanks to my Hydro Flask; it's been positively life changing!

    Promising review: "I LOVE my hydro flask, and I like it better than a YETI, personally. It keeps water ice cold when it’s hot out or when I'm at the gym, and I'm very satisfied with the color selection and the choice of lids—either the wide mouth that comes with it, or the straw lid that I purchased separate. When I'm working I love the wide mouth, when I'm hitting the gym or driving I like the straw lid. I would buy this again, I love it!" —Ashley19155

    Price: $44.95 (available in three colors)

    Interested in the straw lid the reviewer mentioned? Get yourself one here for $9.95.

    25. An Urban Decay eyeshadow primer that will keep your all-important ogler ornamentation in place and smudge-free all day.

    A model wearing the primer on their right eye, and not wearing the primer on the left eye, showing how the primer kept their purple eyeshadow in place.

    5-star reviews: 3,106

    Like the reviewer, I have allergies that make my eyes water, and I use this product. It really does keep my eyeshadow flawless all day—and then some!

    Promising review: "I have never used anything but regular face primer or concealer as an eye shadow primer and within a couple hours I always had creases and caked-up eyeshadow. My allergies make my eyes water so all my eye makeup would disappear or be uneven. This eyeshadow primer is absolutely amazing (when applied properly). It holds my eyeshadow in place with no running, smearing or smudging regardless of what I put it through. I even went out on the boat the other day and my eyeshadow didn't budge, ten hours later it was still as perfect as when I first applied it. It's absolutely mind blowing after all these years of touch ups every hour or just plain giving up and wiping it all off. Urban decay has got their formula perfect. Thank you! I enjoy wearing make-up again." —Jellussygirl

    Price: $13+ (available in two sizes)

    Need some help getting that eyeshadow off? Check out this Lancôme makeup remover with 1,257 5-star reviews! It's $30+ and comes in two sizes.

    26. A Wacoal full coverage contouring underwire bra with a supportive leotard-back design reviewers positively gush over. It comes in eight colors and almost every conceivable size, and is so comfortable you'll want to throw all your other bras out immediately.

    A person wearing the bra, in Deep Taupe

    I am one of those people who appreciates more coverage and has to wear a bra pretty much all of the time to avoid back pain (thanks, genetics!). This one is my absolute favorite. The straps are on the wider side and come together closely in the back for more support, and the lightly padded cups do a good job contouring for everyday wear. I get why reviewers have so much to say about this bra—it's nothing flashy, but for what it is it's just about perfect.

    It's made of polyester and spandex with nylon and spandex accents, and is hand wash only.

    Promising review: "I never write reviews but this bra is worthy of some praise. For me, this is the perfect bra (and I have tried on 20–25 recently). It is extremely comfortable and provides incredible support. Wacoal seems to run a little smaller in the band, which is great for me. I like the cups, which are soft and partially lined on the sides for extra support but don't add bulk like a molded cup. They support quite well and create a nice round (not pointy!) shape. The spacer sits flat against my chest without irritation. The straps are comfortable and come in a bit in the back so they do not peak out under sleeveless tops. Not all bra straps have the range of adjustment I need but this one does. The closure is one of the best features of this bra as it adds so much added support and doesn't creep up your back. The fabric is smooth and doesn't show under any material. This isn't an overly sexy bra but it's also not ugly. I'd describe it as neutral, a true t-shirt bra. I bought two (one in beige and one in black) and wear them every day. Every other bra I try on gets compared to this one and I haven't found a single one that compares! I will be buying more of these without hesitation." —SCScully

    Price: $34+ (originally $58; available in sizes 30A–46DDD and eight colors)

    27. A Casper pillow with an innovative pillow-in-pillow design that's soft on the outside but firm on the inside. It's perfect for side-sleepers because it provides great support and won't go flat. You spend a third of your life sleeping, you deserve to be comfortable!

    5-star reviews: 1,482

    Promising review: It feels downy soft, it’s super comfy, and it's easy to sleep with this pillow. I love it! I highly recommend this and I have tried more pillows than I care to count. This one is wonderful." —CocoP23

    Price: $58.50+ (originally 65+; available in two sizes)

    28. A runched tulip-hem bodycon dress reviewers appreciate for its versatility and tailored fit. You can wear it just about anywhere, and then toss in the wash when you're done.

    5-star reviews: 2,582

    Positive review: "I've gotta say I bought this dress feeling a little unsure of how much I would wear it, but since buying it I wear it as often as possible! I absolutely love it! It seemed a little longer than I normally go for at first but it is perfect because I can wear it to work or out depending on my accessories/shoes/jackets. I definitely recommend this dress!" —Nicolec214

    Price: $38 (originally $56, available in sizes XXS–XL and two colors)

    29. A pair of 2-carat cubic zirconia earrings in a three-prong setting made of either sterling silver with a platinum finish or 14-karat gold plate, which are great for folks with sensitive ears. Reviewers say they're a great dupe for real diamonds, perfect for a little everyday bling.

    5-star reviews: 502

    Promising review: "These earrings are gorgeous! Gere's a tip: clean them often with a jewelry cleaner and they seriously sparkle! They are very very realistic. I seriously doubt ANYBODY but a jeweler could tell the difference between these and a real diamond. I love them! FYI— have extremely sensitive ears and these have been wonderful, they're great for people who can't handle nickel and who have sensitive ears." —Melicious
