    2. A low-maintenance countertop garden for having fresh herbs at your fingertips year-round (no matter how small or sun-less your apartment might be).

    3. A pair of luxurious slippers with a soft faux-fur lining to wear around the house or even outside to fetch the paper. Your toes will be sooo toasty warm.

    5. A French oven that'll help you cook up all the cozy foods. You can use it for slow cooking, braising, stewing, roasting, stir-frying, deep frying, aaand bread making.

    7. A bonded-leather chair with an angled backrest and a padded head pillow to make sitting down a joy. If you'll be spending eight hours in any chair, it should probably be this one!

    8. A KitchenAid stand mixer you can use for decades before passing it on to your kids (who can then pass it on to their kids). It'll really come in handy for the peak cookie-baking season aka the holidays.

    9. A sturdy yet lightweight umbrella that won't collapse at the slightest gust of wind. (If you can manage not to lose it, it just might last forever.)

    10. A Breville espresso maker for whipping up fancy coffee drinks right at home. Homemade pumpkin spice latte, anyone?

    11. A sleek, vacuum-insulated mug with an inner ceramic coating to ensure your coffee tastes great and stays hot for hours and hours.

    13. A Patagonia Nano Puff jacket that's perfect for hiking or walking the doggo on a chilly morning. The best part? It's made of 75% recycled materials.

    14. A tube of Dr. Jart+'s Ceramidin Cream for moisturizing the driest of skin. Winter will be so much more tolerable with this in your medicine cabinet.

    15. A robot vacuum to suck up all the pet hairs and dirt around the house so you don't have to. Now you can do something else with that extra time.

    16. A do-it-all Instant Pot so you can consolidate several appliances into one and whip up chilis and mashed potatoes in half the time it usually takes.

    17. A flannel sheet set (made in Portugal!) that'll make your bed feel like the cuddliest place in the whole damn world. As if you needed another excuse to sleep in.

    18. A waterproof Kindle Paperwhite perfect for anyone who loves reading in the tub (or anywhere, really). Plus, you can download e-books from your local library and save tons of money!

    19. A mid-weight down-alternative duvet insert to keep you warm without being too heavy. (P.S. this is the same kind of comforter that's used in many fancy hotel beds!)

    20. A pair of warm and stretchy Athleta leggings that'll not only be perfect for workouts (they definitely pass the squat test), they'll also look cute for running errands on an off-duty day.

    21. A sleek Bose soundbar so you can enhance your binge-watching experience without shelling out for a full home sound system. It just might make you miss the movie theaters a little less.

    22. A slightly oversized denim sherpa jacket for casual days when you want to be warm and comfortable but still look stylish.

    23. A soft and absorbent microfiber hair towel to dry your mane in a fraction of the time it normally takes. No more stepping out the door with dripping hair when it's freezing outside!
