7. A dangerously cozy heated fleece blanket enabled with 10 heat settings and a 10-hour auto-off function — btw, I say dangerously because you might never leave your bed ever again.

It's also machine-washable! And — rather obviously — it provides a lot of warmth even when the heat isn't turned on.Promising review: "Best purchase I have made in a very long time. I turn it on for several minutes before I go to bed and it feels amazing. The highest temperature is very warm, but too high that you're in danger of getting a burn or anything. It is also nice that is automatically turns off after 10 hours. I also really love how long the wires are, so I can position my control dial anywhere." —Seattle UserGet it from Amazon for $38.59+ (eight colors available in twin, full, queen, and king sizes) or Jet for $39.96.

Promising review: "As a clumsy (like, getting kicked out of stores because you've accidentally knocked over two displays while trying to pick up the original display you knocked over) person who loves nail painting, this has been a gift sent down from Cedric Diggory himself. I haven't been able to spill nail polish once since, and that is a miracle. Even if you're not ultra clumsy, it's just a convenient helper when nail painting." —DiceGet it from Amazon for $10 (nine colors).

Each month I look forward to the selection of products to try, the suggested tips and tricks, and the impeccably-designed and -curated theme. I've learned about so many amazing brands, as well as common misconceptions and good self-care. The value of what you receive each month is well above what everything retails for.
