    Price: $1100+ (available in six sizes and 20 colors)

    21. A wireless subwoofer to absolutely maximize your home movie night experiences. This bad boy features deep bass for music, home theater, and more to deliver pure bass with no rattle or distortion to your cabinets. ♫The house is aliiive with the sound of music.♫

    The subwoofer
    Target

    Promising review: "I thought I was happy with my Sonos until I got the sub. This thing will blow your mind. My last sub was a Bose and this thing blows it away. I guarantee you will never even turn the bass all the way up on it. Even at low volumes you can feel it in your ears (hard to describe). This sub + 2 One's and you'll never go to the movie theater, again." —Target customer

    Price: $699

    22. A bar cart because nothing says "I'm definitely a well-adjusted adult and this is my adult home" quite like a bar cart does. Bonus points if it's actually just full of Pringles and Slim Jims.

    29. A pair of Beats wireless headphones to drown out all that noise your roommates make while you're trying to work from home. "No one cares about your failed Zoom date right now, Ashley. I have to work on these spreadsheets." —not you when you put on these bad boys.

    Target

    Promising review: "I've been thinking about trying a weighted blanket for some time however I was nervous because I don't like feeling constricted. I finally gave it a try and am very happy I did. It feels like a comforting hug and not at all restrictive.

    Price: $99.99 (available in two colors)

    31. A SodaStream to cut back on all those trips you keep taking to the convenience store for fizzy pop. Sure, it's an investment upfront but it'll pay for itself in like...a week probably.
