    1. A pom-pom throw blanket so soft and cuddly, your doggo might steal it and never give it back. (Maybe you can convince your furry friend to share, though.)

    Promising review: "I love this blanket! I bought a new couch so needed a new blanket to match and this one is amazing! It's so cozy and soft. The end pieces are sturdy and don't budge even after my toddler pulls at them. It washes well (I always wash before first use). I might buy another one for my basement couch!" —Daniel Dunleavy

    Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in two sizes and eight colors).

    2. A pack of thick wool socks that'll keep your toes toasty all day long. You won't dread walking across those cold kitchen tiles anymore., Amazon

    Promising review: "They're so warm and fluffy! I love wool socks, but sometimes the texture can be really rough and stiff. These aren't. They have a soft sort of towel-ish texture that feels toe-gasmic. I keep scrunching up my toes so I can feel the softness properly." —K. Price

    Get three pairs from Amazon for $9.98.

    3. An adorable knit cozy to slip over your reusable mug or a disposable cup — it'll protect your hands from scalding heat or condensation.

    Promising review: "Absolutely adorable cup cozy! Fits my reusable Starbucks cups perfectly." —Monipenny

    Get it from Amazon Handmade for $10.99.

    4. An Amazon Fire TV Stick for streaming all your favorite shows and programs on the big screen TV. "Sorry I can't come out today, I'm spending quality time with my Fire Stick." — you, after getting this.


    Promising review: "Wish I would have bought this before anything else after cutting cable. It makes any monitor or digital TV a smart TV and even gets some local news channels using their apps. I would highly suggest to anyone to buy and it's worth every penny. User friendly, so easy setup, and you can take it with you while traveling as long as you have internet service and Wi-Fi wherever you stay. I plan on buying a few more for other TVs in our house." —Scott Stinchcomb

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    5. A clip-on reading light so you can stay up and finish one more chapter.


    These adjustable reading light has two brightness levels and is USB-rechargeable.

    Promising review: "I love this book light so much. It’s so small and lightweight and the clip is strong. It’s perfect even for small paperback books. Many other book lights have a big bulky clip that gets in the way. This is thin and streamlined. The dim option is a plus as well. Very happy!" —M Miller

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

    6. Lavender Epsom salts that'll help relax both your mind and your muscles, so you're ready to get a good night's rest. Add a glass of your fave beverage, some spa music, and maybe a good book for optimal effect.

    Promising review: "Dr. Teals is my favorite brand of epsom salts out there. This is a large bag and will last you a long time. The lavender scent is relaxing and not overpowering, it really helps me relax and sleep better at night." —Nicole

    Get it from Amazon for $4.79.

    7. And a cushy bath pillow to create a much-needed barrier between your neck and the hard tub rim so you can actually lie back and relax.


    Promising review: "So if you're like me who lives in an apartment, you know the bath has little to offer. I was hesitant buying this product knowing I didn't have a head ledge for the top bend to really rest on. But after putting it in my tub and soaking in a long deserved bath, this item was just what I needed. No stiff neck or sore back. Easy to place and clean. This is something I'll recommend to all." —Hannah Ruble

    Get it from Amazon for $16.99.

    8. Curtain string lights for turning your home into a fairy den — you'll truly never want to leave!,

    Promising review: "I absolutely love these lights. I bought them for my dorm in college because bad lighting puts me in a weird mood. These lights are beautiful and made the room feel warm, cozy, and homey. They also helped with winter blues that I always get because I live in Michigan and the winter weather is always cold and gloomy, so having nice lighting helped a lot. I received tons of compliments on them every time someone came into my room. I love these lights so much I bought another set to hang in my room at home. Just buy these beautiful lights!" —Madelynn K.

    Get them from Amazon for $17.99.

    9. A roll-neck dress so you can stay warm while looking like a snack. Plus, there are pockets!!!,

    Promising review: "Love, love, love this sweater. Fits great and feels nice and soft. Looks great with leggings, jeans, or boots. The pockets give it a nice chic look." —Chanel

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and five colors).

    10. A handmade clay mug that'll not only look stunning but will also keep your finger tips warm.


    Promising review: "They are so pretty. I bought one for myself and one as a gift. November in WNY gets cold and it's so nice to be able to warm your hands with a delicious mug of hot tea. If the liquid is too hot to hold like a hand-warmer, then just hold the outer curve almost like you would a regular mug until it cools enough. I love that they come in left- or right-handed. My left-handed friends are grateful that they have a mug special for them! Such beautiful earthy colors and no two are quite alike." —C. Close

    Get it from Amazon for $23.90 (available in left- and right-handed versions)

    11. A pair of slippers with a soft faux-fur lining to wear around the house or even outside to fetch the paper.

    I recently treated myself to a pair of these and they are the SOFTEST slippers I've ever had the pleasure of wearing — I never want to take them off. They also look much more expensive than they are. If you don't want to splurge on Ugg slippers or just prefer a vegan slipper option, I highly recommend these as an alternative.

    Promising review: "My feet are always cold in the winter and these fur-lined slippers are heavenly. The lining is so soft and warm, and the slipper material is a beautiful suede-like material. They are well-made with quality stitching. I like the rubber soles so they will last longer and I can wear them outside to get my mail." —O'Hara Family

    Get them from Amazon for $17.59+ (available in women's sizes 7–11 and three colors).

    12. A small but mighty space heater for quickly warming up whichever room you're in and making it much harder to go outside, where it's cold and dreary.

    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 — however, I actually find it soothing." —J Fu

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

    13. A loose-fitting thermal top you won't be able to stop wearing or ~waffling~ on about.,

    Promising review: "This top is so perfect for the fall weather that is approaching. I love me a baggy shirt that I can also look great in without even putting that much effort in." —Kyla Morgan

    Get it from Amazon for $18.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and 12 colors).

    14. A snuggly oversized blanket sweatshirt you'll probably live in year round. Normal clothes simply can't compete.,

    Promising review: "My husband bought this for me for my birthday and it has been the best! It’s perfect for curling up to read a book or watch a movie." —Makayla Berry

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in 13 colors).

    15. A throw pillow cover listing all the magical ingredients that make for a cozy day at home.


    This throw pillow cover measures 18''x18''.

    Promising review: "I really like this throw pillow. It’s super cute and I am continually asked where I bought it. The quality is good and price just right!" —VMA

    Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

    16. A candle that smells like a vintage library or grandma's kitchen to make your living space feel incredibly homey.


    The Grandma's Kitchen candle smells like sweet and spicy baked goods, and the Library candle smells like a calming blend of wood and leather. These all-natural soy candles have a burn time of 60–80 hours.

    Get them from Homesick: the Grandma's Kitchen candle and the Library candle for $29.95

    17. A crossword puzzle book by The New York Times for a chill yet stimulating weeknight activity. It's just challenging enough to get your brain juices flowing without being too difficult.


    Promising review: "These puzzles are so challenging, yet doable. You have to be patient with yourself and really massage your brain to come up with the correct words. A must-have if you enjoy the NYTimes puzzles but can't get past Wednesday puzzles." —Barbara Morris

    Get it from Amazon for $10.79.

    18. A heated electric blanket so you can transform yourself into a burrito for the rest of the season.


    It has three temperature settings and automatically shuts off after four hours. The fabric is machine-washable so it'll be easy to maintain.

    Promising review: "Everyone at my office is jealous. Heats up quickly. The three settings are all good and far enough apart that you can definitely tell that there are multiple settings. Very easy to use, and it holds heat really well. I’m in love with this blanket." —28187

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

    19. A handheld milk frother that probably attended barista school because it'll help you whip up a cappuccino that looks and tastes incredibly ~profesh~. You can use it for milk tea and hot cocoa as well!,

    Because it's small and battery-powered, you can use it for traveling or camping as well. It comes with a stainless steel stand so you don't have to worry about setting it down on the counter.

    Promising review: "This makes the creamiest froth ever! I am completely blown away by the results of this device. I had no idea that I could make froth at home like this. This changes my whole cappuccino experience!!!" —Wells Family

    Get it from Amazon for $12.97 (available in three colors).

    20. A chunky cardigan to throw over anything and everything because it's just so comfy and stylish.,

    Promising review: "Ordered this knit cardigan after spending hours searching for the perfect sweater — and I found it! This cardigan is warm and cozy, very stylish, and fits perfect." —Julie B.

    Get it from Amazon for $34.99 (available in sizes S–XXL and eight colors).

    21. Hydrating sheet masks perfect for a cheap yet effective at-home facial, because self-care doesn't need to cost a fortune.

    Here's an excerpt: "They're just so relaxing to use! Between balancing work and a social life, having an veryyyy long commute, and spending weekends running errands, I've truly come to love the half hour I can spend relaxing with my face mask on a Sunday night." —Samantha Wieder

    Get a 16-pack from Amazon for $9.99.

    22. A heated Shiatsu massager so you don't have to venture outside or even interact with another human to get some relief for that unreachable sore spot on their back.


    Promising review: "I love using this so much and use it every couple days just to keep my neck and shoulders in shape. It helps so much if I sleep funny and I can fully recover after using it for about 30 minutes. I also find it extremely soothing after a hard day at work. I simply put it behind me in a chair or couch while I’m watching TV for the evening and after a very short time, I just feel the circulation flowing and my muscles relaxed. Great design and easy to use. Well worth the money, too. It has an auto shutoff if it gets too hot, which is excellent because then it never gets too hot and burns out." —A. Brink

    Get it from Amazon for $52.99.

    23. A five-year journal (with just one question a day) that'll encourage some self reflection during your down time. It's simple yet thought-provoking and will make for a wonderful keepsake after it's completed.

    Sarah Han / BuzzFeed

    Read our full review of the Q&A a Day Journal!

    Promising review: "I got this because I was considering starting a journal and wanted something simple to see how it went. I will have had this little book two years in November and after one year was complete, I discovered why it is so good.

    The first year the questions are new — some are fun and frivolous and others really make you think. There are only four short lines to write your answer so there is no pressure to come up with an essay, but by the same token, you have to shorten what could be a long answer into something tight and to the point.

    The second year can be an eye-opener when you read last year's answers and realize how much things, circumstances, or you yourself have changed — and how others have stayed exactly the same.

    It's simple, short, and often fun, but it can bring back memories, good and bad, and it can certainly make you think." —BritGal

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99.

    24. A plush faux fur rug to protect your butt from those cold, hard (but aesthetically pleasing) chairs.

    Promising review: "I purchased this to add an extra layer of comfort and warmth between me and my desk chair in my freezing cold office, while also providing an aesthetic element. This throw was perfect! The faux fur is very soft and comfortable to sit on — not itchy at all — and it is thick and high quality. It keeps me a little warmer, too. For the price I am very happy!" —Rebecca

    Get it from Amazon for $12.99 (available in 13 colors).

    25. Peace & Pages — a monthly subscription box containing a book in the genre of your choice, plus a few products that'll provide peace and relaxation. It's the perfect activity for a Friday night in.


    You can choose from the Basic Box (book + 2 items), the Deluxe Box (book + 4 items), a product-only box, or the Young Adult Fiction boxes. Each box will come with a positively-reviewed paperback book in new/like new, unread condition. The hand-selected, full-size products are all sourced from small businesses in the US.

    Promising review: "I love it! As a mom, I rarely get time to myself so a good book and a bath are basically a mini vacation. I ordered the basic box which had full-sized bath and aromatherapy items and a brand new paperback book. I like that there is a theme to each box so the items go well together. August was lavender, September was apple and I can’t wait to see what they have for October!" —Laureen R.

    Sign up from Cratejoy for $20.99+/month.

    26. A slouchy pom-pom beanie so cute, you might even hate winter a little less (just a little).,

    Promising review: "This hat is fantastic! It is better than advertised, in my opinion. I have a really hard time finding hats to fit because I have a lot of thick, curly, long hair and now I want to order one in every color. I truly despise winter and this hat makes me want the cold to come now just so I can wear it everyday." —Heather Williams Harrell

    Get it from Amazon for $10.99 (available in a variety of colors).

    27. A fleece teddy coat that'll be your go-to coat from now until forever, basically. You'll look photoshoot-ready but feel like you're wearing a blanket.

    Reviewers recommend sizing up for an oversized look.

    Promising review: "I love the look and feel of this coat! Sooooo soft and snuggly, it's like getting a giant bear hug all day. I picked the camel-colored coat, and it goes great with tan boots and a T-shirt underneath. Pretty much plan on wearing it until spring." —MISum

    Get it from Amazon for $31.99 (available in sizes S–3XL and seven colors).

    28. A plush reading pillow to make reading or working in bed an even *more* comfortable experience. As if you needed another reason to stay in bed.


    Promising review: "I bought this for my wife. Being propped up only by pillows is not good for holding a book and she says the arms on the Linenspa makes it much easier. We've only had it since Christmas, but it looks durable and easily cleaned. A handle at the top makes it easy to lift and move aside to make the bed." —Albert N

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99+ (available in three sizes and two colors).

    Stay warm!!!
