An all-season duvet insert to give your bed a comfort makeover because it is *the* single most important part of the room (and, if we’re being real, your entire home).


Promising review: “This comforter is amazing! I was getting too warm with my down comforter, but I still wanted something soft, and this was the answer. It’s very light, yet still provides enough warmth that I’m only using this with a flat sheet. It fit perfectly in my duvet cover and comes with loops on each corner and midway between the corners.” —Joiseygirl

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in twin–California king and in 12 colors).


A full-length mirror so you can see how your entire outfit looks from head to toe before you leave the house.


Promising review: “This mirror looks great and was so easy to put together. I love that it can be turned to different angles. It took me less than five minutes to assemble, and it showed up well-packed and in perfect condition right out of the box.” —CJ

Get it from Amazon for $45.03+ (available in six colors and styles).


A floral medallion tapestry to give your walls new life, which is great if you rent and can’t paint the walls — or you just don’t want to.


It comes with two traceless thumbtacks, two metal clips, and two mounting tapes, so you can hang it however you like.

Promising review: “This is so pretty and very well-made. It was very easy to hang and came with everything I needed. I was worried about the quality since it is such a great price, but I was pleasantly surprised, and I am thinking about buying one for my spare bedroom. I bought the blue, and it matches my gray theme throughout the apartment. If you live where you can’t change the wall color, it is a great option for decorating on a budget. It turned these drab walls into something colorful and pretty.” —Debby R.

Get it from Amazon for $21.99 (available in medium and large and in three colors).


A beautiful art print that’ll add a touch of personality to your bedroom wall and also *probably* remind you to water your plants.

Lovely Earthlings / Etsy

Lovely Earthlings is a Black woman-owned business that has been creating art prints, tote bags, and greeting cards from Louisville, Kentucky since 2011.

Promising review: “I absolutely love this picture! It reminds me that I should amp up my green thumb abilities and that I could use some new athleisure gear. This picture makes me smile and it arrived on time.” —Sharon A Dawkins

Get it from Lovely Earthlings on Etsy for $25.31+ (available in sizes 8×10 and 12×16).


A two-pack of gel pillows because you should probably replace the ones that you’ve had for years. It’s time.


Promising review: “I am a side/stomach sleeper, and I have had a tough time finding the perfect pillow, until now. This pillow is soft and narrow enough to sleep comfortably on my stomach, but not so soft like other pillows that sink so much where I lay my head causing the rest of the pillow to cover my face, thus making it hard to breathe. This one is absolutely perfect. No longer do I have to put my arms under the pillow to prop up the middle enough in order to breathe.” —C. Romano

Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in queen and king sizes).


A marble accent table you’ll want to have ~a-round~ for years because it will look so nice sitting next to your bed and give you a place to put your phone at night while you sleep.

World Market

Promising review: “This is a beautiful table! I bought two and used them as end tables for the bedroom! They have clean lines with a modern design. I’m very happy with this product. The marble has a warm undertone and not as much veining as expected but still beautiful! I would order again.” —Lilah

Get it from World Market for $159.99.


A table lamp with five color modes and seven brightness levels that’s gentle on your eyes.


Plus, it has a USB port in the base for all your charging needs!

Promising review: “This is without a doubt the greatest lamp I have ever purchased in my life. My husband was all like, ‘Hmm I hope that works okay.’ Then I turned it on and he nearly cried due to his amazement. He then declared that we should fill our house with these and I am completely supportive.

Here is why this lamp is so boss:

1. It is extremely versatile; it bends and twists in many different ways.

2. It is extremely easy to use. Right out of the box, I was able to figure out how to work everything without ever reading the instructions.

3. It can be super bright or natural (almost dim). Plus, you can change the warmth of the color, from bright white/blue to a relaxing almost sepia tone, which is easier on the eyes at night.

4. It has a USB port, so I can charge my phone from my art desk without needing another outlet.

Trust me, just buy this lamp. It truly is the bomb dot com.” —Aly Chee

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


A drawer organizer to help introduce you to the world of Marie Kondo, even if you’re not ready to get rid of everything yet. At least your drawers can look good!

amazon.com, Amazon

There are four organizers in the set: a six-cell for scarves and ties, an eight-cell for underwear, a seven-cell for bras, and a 24-cell for socks.

Promising review: “I LOVE LOVE LOVE these organizers!! I almost did not purchase them due to the reviews saying that larger than a C cup would not fit into the bra organizer. At just $13 for four organizers I took my chances and ordered two sets of four. I figured, the worst-case scenario I would have to cut the dividers out of the bra organizers. I’m not sure if it’s just the larger band sizes that won’t fit in these bra organizers? I am guessing if you wear a 36 band size or above that the organizer may be too narrow to fit the bra. However, I believe you could fold in the extra band and fit them in. I had no problem fitting DD cups into these. I wear a 32DD and the bras fit beautifully in the organizers. I ordered another set for tank tops and other extras I did not think of before. I will also order my boyfriend the brown ones for his drawers.” —Elizabeth L Blackwell

Get it from Amazon for $13.87+ (available in four colors).


A Novogratz metal bed frame to upgrade your bed system and make you feel like you’re actually an adult (no matter how old you are).


Promising review: “This bed frame is absolutely stunning. I put it together by myself in around 40 minutes, while having two kids running around and poking at things. It was very easy to put together, and you can’t beat the price. It’s very sturdy and offers good support. Before this bed frame, my husband and I had a wood platform bed ($300 and it was basically just plywood) that bit the dust. So we were sleeping on two mattresses stacked, this is the first time in months I’ve slept and woke without back pain. We have a thicker mattress so it’s on it’s lower setting. We love it! So easy to put together and so stylish. You will not regret this purchase!” —Olivia

Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $190.06 (available in full, queen, king and in five colors).


A set of floating bookshelves that’ll not only provide you with a means to keep books organized, but also turn them into wall art.


Promising review: “If you are running out of space for your books, get these bad boys right away. They are incredibly strong, can hold several heavy books, and give your bedroom an incredible look.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $19.77+ (available in two sizes individually or as a set of three and in silver and white).


A lampshade with a cool geometric print that will for sure be a statement piece in the room.

Bespoke Binny

Bespoke Binny is a Black woman-owned business that has been creating African-inspired lampshades, pillows, aprons, and more from London since 2013. This lampshade fits on table or floor lamps, as well as ceiling pendants. It does not include the lamp base.

Promising review: “This is more beautiful in real life than I thought it would be. I am extremely happy with my product and how it was delivered.” —vera bannerman

Get it from Bespoke Binny on Etsy for $57.41+ (available in two sizes).


An over-the-door baseball cap holder to tidy up your closet and stop them from piling up in random corners of your home.

amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “I’m calling this one of those ‘why didn’t I know about this sooner?’ products. It took seconds to hang and then a few minutes for me to gather all of my boys’ hats and add them. There are two hangers included. I found that I could add both to the same closet door (hung inside) and am able to close the door without having any issues. For the value and quality, this is a definite must if you want to keep those hats tidy and organized.” —MommaKnowsBest

Get it from Amazon for $10.99


A three-piece comforter set with a tropical design that might just make you feel like you’re relaxing on a tropical island as you fall asleep.


The set comes with the comforter and two shams.

Promising review: “This beautiful, high-quality comforter looks as good as the picture. It adds color and pizzazz to my newly re-decorated bedroom. I love the trim and the underside that add character and interest to the overall look.” —Amy

Get it from Walmart for $94.99 (available in queen-size).


A pet bed to keep your furry friend comfortable and close to you as you sleep at night if sharing the bed with your pup or kitty isn’t your style.

amazon.com, amazon.com

The jumbo cuddler fits cats or dogs up to 35 lbs and features high walls that provide warmth and a sense of security. Plus, it’s machine-washable and has a waterproof bottom.

Promising review: “I would give it 15 stars if I could. I bought three beds for three small dogs. Each dog has a very different personality. When I received the beds I put my feet into them and put some of my clothes in them. After a couple of hours, I then put the dogs in the beds. My two headstrong Pom-chees loved the beds immediately. The other dog wouldn’t go near the bed until I put my daughter’s pajamas in it, whom she loves the most. She loved it. I moved the beds to my bed and each dog knew their bed and went to their bed and curled up for the night. Now they sleep in the beds instead of under my covers. I have bought lots of beds before and the dogs hate them but these beds they love and use. I am so pleased.” —Zm Mckerrihan

Get it from Amazon for $21.51+ (available in two sizes and 16 colors).


A double laundry basket with two compartments so you can pre-sort your lights and darks, essentially making doing laundry just a little bit easier.


Promising review: “I can’t believe I’m writing a review for a laundry basket, but I love it that much, so here I am. I purchased one at the Container Store that was $90, and once I got it home, it was ok, but I felt guilty for spending that much money on something you throw dirty clothes in. I’ve recently moved into a new condo where storage is a premium; however, the bathroom is pretty large, which is why I decided I needed something that was publicly presentable. The quality of this hamper for $35 goes way beyond the price. It’s attractive — stylish, even — and very sturdy. I love it. —Alan McGinnis

Get it from Amazon for $39.96+ (available in a single or double style and in five colors).


A set of microfiber sheets with more than 55,000(!!!!) five-star reviews, so you know they must be AH-MAZING.


The sheets are 100% polyester and come with a flat sheet, a fitted sheet, and one or two pillowcases, depending on your size bed. They’re designed to be fade-, stain-, shrink-, and wrinkle-resistant as well as hypoallergenic.

Promising review: “These sheets are insanely soft to the touch and comfortable to sleep on! I originally bought them for my 10-year-old son’s bed because they were highly rated for softness and not that expensive. They truly are so soft. He loves them, so I decided to get some for the guest bedroom. They’re so great that everyone that stays there wants to know what brand they are. They’re awesome!! Now I have them for all of our beds. They are lightweight, so they dry quickly and don’t pill. They are NOT cotton, which I’m usually a snob about, but I have to confess, I like these better than my four-times-as-expensive cotton sheets. I love them and the price!!” —Gwendolyn

Get them from Amazon for $35.97+ (available in twin, twin XL, full, queen, king, and California king and in 43 colors and patterns).


A set of blackout curtains so effective at blocking out sunlight, you’ll probably want to make sure to set an alarm (or two).


Promising review: “For the price these are FANTASTIC! I have a sunroom, which is basically all glass and gets VERY cold in the winter. I needed something to keep the room warmer and these fit the bill beautifully. They are sturdy and keep the room quite warm. Plus, they also block out all of the light coming in. When closed, it’s like midnight!! The Velcro tie-backs are an added bonus and are easy to wrap around when I need them open. I love them so much I’m buying more for my bedroom. They are SO much better than the pricey curtains I just bought, which are so stiff I have to fight them to open or close them. I really recommend these!!” —Mark S

Get it from Amazon for $35.99+ (available in six sizes, two styles, and 21 colors).


Or sheer floral curtains to let natural light in to the room and make it feel bigger than it actually is.


Promising review: “These are beautiful! I placed them in my bedroom and my living areas. I was initially worried that they might look a bit juvenile, but they aren’t… they look wonderful. In my bedroom. I’m very pleased with it.” —Cantthkofone

Get it from Target for $19.99 (available in two sizes).


A faux-fur throw for adding an extra layer of warmth when you’re too comfortable to get up from your bed and turn the heat up a couple of degrees.


Promising review: “I don’t particularly like to write reviews for things, but I will in this case. I love this throw, which is accurately described as ‘super-soft fuzzy.’ And for the price? You can’t beat it. Seriously, give it a go. I got mine in charcoal, and it’s nice-looking, too. I live in a temperate climate, but it does get chilly at night and this helps.” —Lollygagging

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in five sizes and 21 colors).


A vanity that’ll change the way you get ready and make you feel like a movie star in the process. Who wants to stand and get ready when you can sit and look at yourself in these big mirrors!?!


Promising review: “Let me just start off by saying, I NEVER write reviews for anything, but everything about the vanity was perfect. I had low expectations and was a bit skeptical before buying it because you can’t really trust everything you buy online. So when I received this, I was beyond happy. First of all, the shipment arrived 5 days earlier than expected, which was a pleasant surprise. Setting the vanity up was easy (just make sure you read the instructions haha), and it’s the perfect size. It’s not too small and not huge either. It’s also a fairly decent price for such a fantastic and beautiful vanity. Not a single scratch, and it’s just so beautiful. I’d highly recommend this for anyone who’s looking for a small adorable functional vanity for a fair price. Truly worth every penny spent. I’m buying LED lights, and I’m attaching them onto the mirror, and I can’t wait to continue dolling up at my vanity.” —Leena A.

Get it from Amazon for $240.


An essential oil diffuser to make your room such a sanctuary you’ll probably feel like you’re at a relaxing spa.


The diffuser comes with six essential oils: lavender, tea tree, peppermint, eucalyptus, lemongrass, and sweet orange.

Promising review: “I AM IN LOVE! I purchased this on a whim and I couldn’t be happier with my purchase….I actually plan on getting these as Christmas gifts. I love the wood-grain look. I thought (judging by the size of it) that it would not really be able to push that much of the aroma throughout the room, but pleasantly, I was wrong. I put a few essential oils in it and ran it on the six-hour setting, and it just fills your room with whatever scent your essential oils have. I love the various color options — they aren’t incredibly bright in a dark room, which makes sleeping easier because in general, I prefer the room to be completely dark. It is overall quiet, which is also a nice bonus. I actually like the appearance and thought it kind of elevated my room in a zen-like manner. I hope this little beauty lasts me a while because I would happily fork out even double the price I paid.” —Beng2016

Get it from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in red brown, dark brown, and yellow).


An eight-drawer dresser people may be shocked about when you tell them how little you paid for this beauty.


Promising review: “Assembly was long, but that was expected. This dresser is sturdy and drawers slide easily! We are very pleased with this dresser. It holds a lot, looks great, and is perfect in our bedroom!”—Lydiebug

Get it from Ikea for $249 (available in six colors).


An upholstered platform bed that’ll immediately take your decor to new *heights*.


Promising review: “This bed is amazing! You seriously cannot beat it for the price. Assembly was so easy. The only thing I needed was for my husband to carry it to the bedroom, I did everything else. It’s super heavy and took me an hour to put it together; that’s with my four year olds ‘help’. Don’t hesitate, just buy it!” —Amanda

Get it from Amazon for $221.09+ (available in twin, full, queen, and king and in dark grey and sage).


A brushed steel lamp with a charging outlet in the base to illuminate your space and also keep your phone at 100%.


Promising review: “I love this lamp! It’s perfect for a nightstand. I got the black shade, which looks awesome with the light shining through it. The outlet on the base is super convenient. Now I don’t have to run an extension cord up to my nightstand just to charge my phone or iPad. It’s a great buy. I definitely recommend it.” —Michael warren

Get it from Amazon for $19.06+ (available in 19 colors).


A five-shelf hanging closet organizer for storing random things that take up more space on a hanger (such as sweaters or scarves or even nonhangable things like shoes).


Promising review: “I purchased this to free up space in my closet. For years I’ve always laid my sweaters over hangers and hung them up. As you can imagine, that took up most of the hanging space in my closet and resulted in many of my sweaters falling on the floor after slipping off the hanger. This product was super easy to assemble and it holds five to six sweaters per shelf. I love it!” —Nikki

Get it from Amazon for $12.87 (available in seven colors).


Or a complete organization system to overhaul your whole closet and, at the same time, quite possibly change your life.


Promising review: “I love this organizer. It was easy to install with easy-to-read instructions. I love how versatile it is as well. I can’t believe how functional it is! It’s way better than our previous organizer. The fact that it’s a no-cut design and adjustable is great. If I change my mind on how I have it arranged, it will be easy to change it up. The price was great as well. I would by this again!” —Mom of Three

Get it from Amazon for $109.99+ (available in three sizes and three styles).


Or a garment rack you can use to organize your clothes if your current closet situation just isn’t cutting it.


Promising review: “This was a great buy! I moved into a house where there was no clothes-hanging rack in the master bedroom. This garment rack was the perfect fit and holds a multitude of clothes. It is definitely a plus that it only took minutes to assemble.” —Greenfeline2004

Get it from Amazon for $39.97+ (available in standard and large).


A faux-leather folding storage ottoman to stash all your extra pillows and blankets and make the end of your book look extra elegant to boot.


Promising review: “This was my favorite purchase of the year. I needed extra storage space for sheets since my linen closet is quite small and only fits my towels. I spotted this gem on Amazon and absolutely love it. It looks like a real leather bench and is very sturdy. There is an insert you put inside, which you don’t have to use, but I did. It separates my winter and summer sheets. I have eight sets of queen sheets in this beauty, and now my storage problem is over. I’m going to order another one for the guest room. Amazon, you rock!” —Mare

Get it from Amazon for $38+ (available in four colors).


Bed bands that’ll work super hard to keep the corners of your fitted sheet in place so they don’t pop off and try to escape every chance they get. Plus, this means you won’t have to fight to get the sheet on all four corners as often — that itself is a chore.


Promising review: “These have worked great! I like bamboo sheets, which are slippery and the corners always came up. Since I started using these my corners haven’t come up and the sheet stays relatively wrinkle-free.” —Beachyfun

Get them from Amazon for $12.99+ (available in five colors and styles).


A vintage-looking accent rug so beautiful Meghan Markle *probably* has it in her room too (just a hunch here).


Promising review: “This just arrived and I love it. I am using it in my bedroom as an area accent. I love the ‘faded’ concept in this rug. As other reviewers have stated, it was folded but well-packaged and the wrinkles have smoothed out quickly. It’s a nice rug for the money.” —Wandagail

Get it from Amazon for $33.98+ (available in 19 sizes and 10 colors).


A three-tier shoe rack you can use to keep your shoes organized instead of in a barely visible messy pile across the bottom of your closet.


Promising review: “This is a great shoe rack. It looks good and is easy to put together (and I’m not handy at all). I ordered one a couple of years ago, and it still looks just like new. Now I have two, both in my closet. And I’m planning on getting another one soon to put in our hallway closet.” —aliseee

Get it from Amazon for $29.10+ (available in four styles and five colors).
