Oh, and FYI β€” prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. An adjustable laptop desk, so you can comfortably sit up while watching TV or doing homework and not strain your back or legs β€” and it's perfect for ensuring a steady supply of snacks and drinks are always within reach.


    Promising review: "I LOVE this table! Works great for doing homework in my bedroom when I want to be warm and comfortable. Totally saves my back too! Most definitely recommend this brand of table. The drawer is nice and the cutout keeps my laptop cool." β€”Jessica

    Check out my full review on this SONGMICS laptop desk to learn more about why I stan this object as a cozy-loving homebody.

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99.

    2. A rotating, color-changing projector to transform your ceiling and walls into the Northern Lights and help lull your mind to sleep β€” or at least to a happier, calmer state.


    Promising review: "I’m a college student and this is one of the best self-purchases I made. Having a lot of anxiety and stress built up from school and work, I turned to trying to find some type of relief to help me calm down and sleep. I saw this aurora light randomly scrolling through Amazon and knew that it would make my room feel so cozy at nighttime and help me sleep! Sure enough, it was exactly as I had thought, and I really love all the different light options it gives you. The sound quality is nothing near amazing and the volume doesn’t go too high, but if you aren’t too worried about having the speaker, the aurora light itself is amazing!" β€”Jessica Kuksuk

    Get it from Amazon for $21.96 (available in two colors).

    3. Or a minimalist cube lamp for a tiny dose of light that is far from overwhelming β€” the perfect amount for pre-bedtime reading, one might say.


    Promising review: "This lamp is a beautiful piece in my room. It is small and unobtrusive, but works like a charm and draws the eye of any guests. It's been three months and I love it." β€”SujuYoon

    Get it from Amazon for $34.95.

    4. A full-on snuggie situation that'll let you be simultaneously cozy, mobile, and all-around living your best life β€” and it comes with a sizable front pocket that can fit many things, including but not limited to a remote, bag of chips, or cuddly pupper., Amazon

    Promising review: "Once I tried it on, I instantly became warm and cozy. I know that this is going to be a great asset to me during those cold winter months or cold summer nights, or just whenever I want to feel cozy! I would recommend that you buy it and really enjoy quality time watching TV, doing homework assignments, or just reflecting on the day." β€”Destiny

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

    5. A compact but efficient ceramic space heater, so you feel warm from head to toe in seemingly a snap of the fingers.

    Promising review: "I cannot handle how sturdy and steadfast this powerful little heater is. It easily warms my little apartment, does not overheat, and is cute and little. I would not call it quiet, however, as it does produce a pretty loud fan sound β€” however, I actually find it soothing." β€”J Fu

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in two colors).

    6. Photo string lights to shine a spotlight on your favorite memories β€” because if you didn't snap it, did it really happen? Just kidding, but you definitely won't regret purchasing this simple but stunning decor/lighting power hybrid., Amazon

    Some reviewers recommend setting the lights up with a smart plug (I own this Kasa plug and it's amazing), so you can turn them on and off with ease/from wherever you are.

    Promising review (for the regular string lights): "This makes my bedroom look super cozy yet glam. I turn on these lights on nearly every day and I’ve had them well over a year, and they are still going strong. I just moved apartments and this was one of the first items I had to put up. Definitely brightens up my room, while also giving me that cozy-at-home vibe." β€”Makeupbymichele

    Get a 300-light string for $17.99 or a 20-photo string light from Amazon for $12.99.

    7. A gel-infused, memory foam mattress topper that'll transform any stiff bed, couch, or futon into a cloud-like dream that all of your weary muscles will satisfyingly sink into β€” so you can, in return, have sweet dreams.


    Promising review: "I have a cheap, hard mattress, so I bought this and my bed is now dangerously comfy. It’s like that scene in A Nightmare on Elm Street where Johnny Depp gets eaten by a bed, except not scary. My boyfriend was almost late for work because he was too comfortable. I slept for 12 hours when I can normally barely sleep for six hours. My cat hardly gets off the bed now. My bed is now dangerously cozy. Use at your own risk. I think I’m going to go back to bed. I hear its sweet siren song calling me." β€”Jess

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in sizes twin to California king, as well as two and three inch heights).

    8. A luxe 'n' pleated velvet floor pillow to cushion you and your guests' tushes properly, so you can have a spectacularly cozy game or movie night with your faves.


    Promising review: "Much bigger than what I expected, but WOW this pillow is gorgeous! The detail and the fabric are both really great. I feel I got a good deal on the price considering the quality too." β€”Summer

    Get it from Walmart for $20 (available in four colors; measures 16" in diameter).

    9. A lavender and chamomile aromatherapy mist that'll help you unwind and ~untense~ yourself after a long day and make your bed feel all the more inviting β€” give it a few spritzes and dive in.


    Promising review: "I think this spray might be helping me sleep better, but I'm not positive. What I am sure of is that it smells fantastic! I have tried other sleeping sprays (and just about every sleep product on the market for my resistant insomnia) and this is one of my favorites for just having such a great, comforting smell. It makes my bedroom feel more cozy and inviting (which can be hard for some of us who learn to hate our beds when we can't sleep). So, I think it contributes to my ability to sleep better just by making my bed more inviting." β€”Wiwse

    Get it from Amazon for $14.94 (available in six scents, or as a six-piece variety pack for $59.99).

    10. A soft faux-sheepskin cover for digging your toes into, or making any chair or sofa automatically feel more snug.


    Promising review: "I purchased this faux-sheepskin to make my new Eames chair a tad comfier! It's really nice! I was afraid it would shed because of some of the other reviews, but I haven't had any issues with shedding. It stays in place very well and doesn't slide around at all, which is surprising because the chair is acrylic/plastic. The back has faux-suede, which looks very nice. I wouldn't go as far as to say that this looks real, but it certainly does not look cheap or gaudy at all. It looks great on the chair in front of my desk and makes it much cozier. It was a great price too!" β€”SweetAndSalty

    Get it from Amazon for $17.09+ (available in 11 colors and five sizes).

    11. A cheeky 'n' cute noodle bowl (with a built-in resting spot for chopsticks) destined for slurping up a comforting bowl of ramen, because sometimes simple meals are the very best.

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "So I really enjoyed this bowl and everyone that comes over is obsessed with eating out of them too. I have a few in my collection. It's big enough for two packs of ramen or pho β€” so worth the purchase and it's dishwasher-friendly." β€”izzyfrizzy

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $14 (available in two designs). Level up with a bowl and chopsticks set that also includes a soy sauce dish and miso/soup spoon for $20.

    12. A compact but powerful 'n' bright multimedia projector and 100-inch project screen to instantly turn any room into a mini home theater. Just plug in a phone, gaming system, streaming stick (including the Amazon Fire TV stick), or laptop for hours on hours of fun!, Amazon

    If you don't necessarily have a gaming system (like me!) but still want to host a game night, I really recommend getting a Jackbox Games Party Pack. Basically all players play on their phones (you're given a code to join in on any of the five included games right in your internet browser), but the game itself is streamed via a gaming system, cable/streaming service, or through a computer app called Steam (which is what I used). I've played a few of them at this point and I think they're all great and give me a healthy level of stress and competitiveness, LOL. My favorite games in particular are Push The Button (which involves a lot of deceit and is extremely hard for me), Trivia Murder Party (also stressful but fun), and Joke Boat.

    Promising review: "I bought this projector for myself because I am a college student and I wanted to find something that I can use to play video games and watch TV. Buying a 40" TV was too expensive for me, so I found this to be a great alternative and it actually turned out to be a better option. I have that 40-inch display like I wanted or larger. This has been great for movie nights with my friends. I was able to hook up my JBL mini speaker to it as well to create a surround sound effect. If you're a college student I definitely recommend you look into this as an alternative to a TV display! You won't regret it!!" β€”Martin Family

    Get it from Amazon for $89.99.

    13. A pair of Pudus slipper socks that'll hug your footsies as closely as they deserve after stomping all around town.


    Promising review: "What else can you say? Warm, thick fleece around your feet!!! They are very warm and remain soft, wash after wash. The rubber dots on the bottom are quite sufficient to keep your footing and not slip." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $24.99 (available in *a lot* of designs and a unisex size that fits women's 5–11 and men's 6–10 sizes).

    14. Or a pair of microsuede, faux fur-lined slippers or cable knit slippers for even more warmth and coziness as you're shufflin' (every day) around the house. This feeling can't be beat!

    BuzzFeed / Yi Yang, Amazon

    Promising review (for the first slippers): "In the words of Bob Ross, 'it’s so important to do something every day that will make you happy.' During cozy-time weather, that something includes putting on a fuzzy pair of slippers. When I get home from work, I kick off my uncomfortable professional shoes and immediately slip into these bad boys. The entire interior is lined with a layer of fluff for maximum comfort and warmth. After wearing them for a week, the fur conformed to my wide feet and they fit perfectly. Love these cozy little slippers." β€”Milly

    Check out a BuzzFeeder's review of the first slippers (#2) for more deets!

    Get the first pair from Amazon for $17.59 (currently available in one unisex size that fits 9.5–10.5 women and 9.5–10.5 men sizes) and the second pair for $21.99 (available in sizes 5–12 and four colors).

    15. A reusable steam eye mask to soothe your worn-out peepers after a day of staring at screens β€” they're basically like an express spa treatment, and each mask stays warm for 10-20 minutes! And what better way to ignore and quite literally shut out the world!


    Promising review: "I can't sleep without it! I used to have trouble sleeping at night and due to getting few hours of sleep, I also have dark circles under my eyes. The heat helps me feel relaxed and sleepy. The sweet smell of the beans is a plus too." β€”Patricia Garcia

    Get it from Amazon for $8.98.

    16. Or a contoured eye mask that'll block out all light and distractions that dare to disturb your precious rest, while alleviating any pressure on your peepers.


    Promising review: "Very soft and lightweight eye mask. My favorite feature is the type of band they use to keep it on your head. It is stretchy but holds its structure, and they use a sliding clip that does not have sharp edges or Velcro β€” therefore, it will not get stuck in your hair while you sleep. The travel bag and earplugs it comes with are nice perks!" β€”Danielle Foster

    Get it from Amazon for $6.99.

    17. A Homesick Candle, so your entire living room will smell of your favorite place in the world, whether that's a library or a (probably aspirational) beach cottage.


    Promising review: "Love this smell β€” it's musky and a bit masculine, but also literally does remind me of books. The block print lettering on the front looks cool in our home and works well with both transitional and modern decorations. I have it on our bookshelf and love it." β€”redhed

    Get them from Amazon for $30 each: Library or Beach Cottage. Check out all of the other varieties here!

    18. Or a set of realistic-looking flameless candles if you're afraid of getting *too* cozy and falling asleep next to an unattended flame.


    Promising review: "Love these! So many different options to run them and the remote makes it so effortless to add a little coziness to your room" β€”Ashley Arnette

    Get a set of nine from Amazon for $27.99 (available in three other colors/styles and quantities).

    19. A gorgeous printed peel 'n' stick wallpaper to breathe life into your blank walls β€” best of all, it requires minimal effort to apply, but you get maximum results. Imagine how happy you'll be every time you enter the room!


    Promising review: "Love, love, love this wallpaper!!! It is beautiful and unique, refined and elegant, and has heavy-duty quality. I found it super easy to install, though I opted to use it for a room border versus a full wall. I also found it very forgiving, allowing me to pull it back off and adjust areas without leaving permanent dents in the design. It gave my son’s bedroom a whole new look and I have gotten lots of compliments on this wallpaper!" β€”Melissa

    Get a 28 square foot roll from The Novogratz on Amazon for $39.99 (available in 11 patterns).

    20. A small gold sloth wall hook that'll serve as a necessary reminder to take it easy 'n' slow when you're feeling overwhelmed (that's 24/7 for me!), and it'll always keep your keys in *one* place β€” that alone will decrease your stress tenfold.

    Urban Outfitters

    It unfortunately doesn't come with screws, so you'll have to get those (gold, if you wanna match) ones on your own.

    Promising review: "Such a cute key holder we had to name her (Syd). We never have to search for keys anymore." β€”kimpiscott

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $8.

    21. A non-slip bamboo bathtub tray for possibly the coziest soak of your life β€” which means being surrounded by your favorite calm-inducing things: a glass of wine, book, candles, snacks, and ambient music.


    Do yourself a big favor and upgrade your baths right this second! I'm so much more relaxed just looking at this photo.

    Promising review: "It's like it was made for special days, when the only things you need are a bathtub filled with hot water, your favorite movie, and a glass of wine. Could be a nice present as well." β€”Ana D.

    Get it from Amazon for $44.97+ (available in three colors).

    22. A versatile deep tissue heated massager you'll be maneuvering across every body part, because you're not about playing favorites β€” talk about relaxation!, Amazon

    Hello, eight kneading rollers, two massage directions, and a timer that's set at 15 minutes (45 mins is the max recommended time for any particular area).

    Promising review: "I was skeptical about buying a massager online, but I guess I wanted to try anything at this point because the tension in my neck was so bad! I am using it right now for the first time and it's amazing. Just the right pressure and hitting all the spots that I have knots in. It's very warm, but I wouldn't say 'hot.' I can't wait to use this every night to relax!!! I am so grateful." β€”Jamie Shepard

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in two colors).

    23. A cute 'n' desk-sized USB-powered humidifier to keep dry air and overactive radiators from ruining your peaceful day.


    Promising review: "It is super easy to set up, and it totally works. I put this cute desktop humidifier beside my bed for when I am sleeping. The light is warm and romantic, and it is so quiet. The water vapor is moderate enough to make the dry air become comfortable. Highly recommend!" β€”Mengting

    Get it from Amazon for $14.99 (available in three styles).

    24. A mini Dash rice cooker for cooking the perfect amount of fluffy rice, warm soup, nourishing veggies, or whatever else your party of one (or two) desires., Amazon

    It has a two-cup capacity, only takes minutes to prep (dump in water and uncooked food), and steamed food will be ready in 20 minutes. There's also a keep warm function, and the removable pot is nonstick for easy cleanup.

    Promising review: "I used to avoid making rice because it was a hassle requiring vigilance, timing, and temperature control, and not to mention the cleaning up the sticky mess left behind. This cute, little non-stick gizmo makes PERFECT rice while you IGNORE it, sometimes for hours. It also comes with a charming recipe booklet that shows things that can be made with it BESIDES rice β€” like soup, mac 'n' cheese, chili, pudding, etc. This attractive cooker takes center stage in my kitchen. I recommend it highly!" β€”Cape Cod Kadi

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

    25. A brushstroke-inspired wall painting to brighten up your plain walls and help you turn your room into a downright ~oasis~.


    Get it from Walmart for $59.

    26. A set of dainty crochet coasters to cuddle up with your hot drinks and help them not burn or scratch your precious tabletops.


    Promising review: "These remind me of my grandma's house, and I wish I had some of her old doilies. When I received a couple of art pieces at Christmas, I wanted to display them without scratching the furniture with their stone bases. The solution was to buy this pack of doilies. I'm using two and keeping two in reserve for when I have to wash the first two. A nice solution." β€”Marilyn Osborne

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $8.29+ (available in four colors).

    27. A kawaii bread loaf pillow that'll nestle perfectly into the nook of your arm, or be your movie-watching buddy on a lazy Sunday.


    Promising review: "The cutest thing in the whole world. When I am sad, I look at loaf and find instant happiness. I never knew such joy could be found in a stuffed carb." β€”Torre Massie

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99.

    28. A set of mini succulent pots to lovingly house your low-key plants, which are pretty much a reflection of you β€” chill as can be.


    Promising review: "I got these today and moved some of my plants to them from tiny starter pots. They are the perfect size to give these plants more room to grow until they get even bigger. The pots are really cute and sleek. They arrived in pristine condition, very well packed. I’m very happy with them." β€”Anna Stansfield

    Get them from Amazon for $9.90+ (available in sets of two, four, and six).

    29. A plush velour reading pillow for the perfect "I'm in my happy place" positioning, so you are at optimal comfort levels while you dive deep into your latest read or TV show obsession.


    You can easily spot-clean the breathable velour cover with a wet cloth or whatever you'd like. And it has side pockets for your phone or whatever else you need on hand!

    Promising review: "Like most people we are very busy in our household with work, grad school, and other day-to-day events. Because of this, we like to wind down with comfort. This pillow is amazing. I did what the instructions said (throw in the dryer with NO HEAT) in order to fluff my pillow. It was great! It was such a great pillow for doing work/school while providing comfort, we ended up buying a second one for my boyfriend. Would very much recommend these!" β€”LA

    Get it from Amazon for $37.99.

    Oh my, how nice it is to feel cozy!
