    It doesn't take a lot!

Just so you know, BuzzFeed may collect a share of sales or other compensation from the links on this page if you decide to shop from them. 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.


    FYI, there are cutouts to prevent your laptop from overheating!

    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 $32.99.

    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 $22.89 (available in two colors).

    3. Or a minimalist cube (or sphere!) lamp for a tiny dose of light that is far from overwhelming β€” the perfect amount for before-bed 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 (available in two shapes).

    4. A soft faux-sheepskin cover for digging your toes into or making any chair 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 $20.99+ (available in seven colors and five sizes).

    5. A luxe mauve 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: "This floor pillow is absolutely adorable! It's the perfect size to throw in the corner and use as an extra seat when guests come over. The velvet is super soft and the blush pink color looks great with the rest of my decor. It's actually a little bigger than it seems in the picture, thick enough to provide lots of cushion for someone sitting on it. Overall, great value β€” I wish it came in more colors!" β€”decordiva

    Get it from Walmart for $34.

    6. 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.

    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 $23.99 (available in nine colors).

    7. 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.


    Promising review: "Wow, these were better than I expected! Everyone who walks in the room notices my lighted display of family pictures right away, and they absolutely love it! Then the question, 'Where did you get that?' The pics even show up at night and give a nice, cheery illumination to the room." β€”Lisa J. Rief

    Get it from Amazon for $13.99+ (available in 20, 40, and 60 photo clip versions). Or, if you want normal string lights, you can get a 300-light string for $17.99.

    8. 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).

    9. A compact, remote-controllable space heater – it's pretty self-explanatory in terms of how it'll cozy up your place β€” for anyone who's sensitive to the cold or living in a building with stingy management, this will be a godsend.


    There are three settings: 1500-watt high heat, 750-watt low heat, and energy-saving auto mode, and it measures 13.38 x 16.14 x 16.73 inches. It's also equipped with safety features, like a tip-over switch and overheating protection.

    Promising review: "It works really well. Turn it on, and it heats up from like 0 to 60 degrees in under a minute. And it JUST heats in the middle. Under ten minutes my whole small place is toasty and warm." β€”tdmjae

    Get it from Walmart for $34.97.

    10. A mini movie projector for a larger-than-life viewing experience β€” because you deserve the coziest and most vivid movie viewing possible. Movie theater, who?, Amazon

    Promising review: "I love this projector so much. The picture is so clear and we just use it on a white wall, so you don’t even need a screen! I want to seriously get rid of my TV and only have this. It is THE best. It’s like having a movie theater in my house. You will not be disappointed. And we just hook it up to the Roku Stick but Apple TV or any kind of hookup along those lines will work." β€”Bianca Perk

    Get it from Amazon for $99.99 (available in two colors).

    11. A color-changing lucky cat table light to bring a bit of light, happiness, and good fortune to any room (and to confuse your cat for funsies).

    Urban Outfitters

    Get the first one from Urban Outfitters for $32 or a simpler cat light from Amazon for $14.99.

    12. 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 $39.99.

    13. A lavender and chamomile aromatherapy mist to 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 $14.95 (available in six other scents).

    14. A cheeky but 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.

    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 $11.50.

    16. 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).

    17. A gold wire wall hook determined to bring lots of chill into your home β€” it serves as a necessary reminder to take it easy, and it'll keep your necklaces untangled at the same time (that alone will decrease your stress tenfold!).

    Urban Outfitters

    Promising review: "Love this 'chill' wall hook. Every time I see it, I remember to relax. The finishing is nice and I can also use it as a necklace holder." β€”milktcoffee

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $12.

    18. A Homesick Candle, so your entire living room will smell of your favorite place in the world, whether that's a library or your home state.


    Promising review: "The Books candle is so lovely. The packaging is great, and the candle itself smells a bit like vanilla mixed with an old library. Burns slowly and isn't too strong." β€”Amazon Customer

    Get them from Amazon for $30 each: Books and Texas (or any other state)

    19. 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 $22.99 (available in three other colors/styles and quantities).

    20. A smol 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 $14.88+ (available in two colors/styles).

    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.


    Who knew a wooden plank could make such a big difference?

    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 $42.97.

    22. 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.

    23. A very welcoming doormat that'll remind you exactly what you need to do, lest you forget, and of course your guests β€” because if they aren't about cozying up, they might as well turn around!


    Get it from Black Butterfly Signs on Etsy for $38.40.

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


    Get a set of four from Amazon for $8.94 (available in two colors).

    25. 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 $19.12.

    26. 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.

    Urban Outfitters

    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: "This rice cooker is perfect. It makes just the right amount of rice, and it comes out nice and soft and fluffy. It's easy to use, and I love how versatile it is and it can cook several different things in it. The rice also never sticks to the little pot, so cleanup is super easy and quick." β€”wesleyr

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

    27. 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 a set of four from Amazon for $13.80 (also available in different styles/quantities).

    28. A cutesy, minimalist heart clock can add a little bit of lovin' to make the passage of time seem less daunting.

    Urban Outfitters

    Get it from Urban Outfitters for $19 (originally $29).

    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.


    The velour cover is removable and machine-washable, so don't fret if you spill! And it has pockets for your phone or whatever else you can't be without!

    Promising review: "A soft and cozy reading pillow β€” very comfortable and supportive for bedtime reading. Supports back, neck, and arms just right, and it has an extra high back for great support. Material is beautiful and well-made. A must-have for the whole family." β€”Heidi Hall

    Get it from Amazon for $38.99.

    Oh my, how nice it is to feel cozy!
