Amazon

Promising review: “I am delighted with this diffuser. It came quickly, was packed securely and efficiently, with easy-to-open packaging. The specs say that it runs about three hours on the continuous setting (it can also run intermittently), but when filled completely, I’ve found it lasts through the night. I have it set on my nightstand and it’s perfect for unwinding at bedtime (or with some sinus-clearing essential oils on a headache day).” —BookBelle

Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in four colors).

2.

A silk pillowcase so you can sleep in the lap of luxury — a luxury that just so happens to be totally hypoallergenic, retain hair moisture, reduce frizziness, and is recommended by dermatologists to minimize fine lines.


Amazon

Promising review: “I ADORE THESE! I just gave two to a friend as part of a wedding gift and she is in love. I think I will have to order them by the dozen so I can still have one for me as my whole family covets them and is stealing them away. They are great for curly hair. You wake up and your hair doesn’t look like a rat’s nest. I’ve read that they are also great for your skin so am watching to see if that is true. Thank you for a fabulous product.” —Lena

Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in seven sizes and 43 colors).

3.

An alarm clock to simulate the sunrise, so waking up (at any time) feels totally natural.


Amazon

Promising review: “This thing is a game-changer! I got it because I got tired of being owned by my phone. It used to be the last thing I checked before going to bed, and the first thing I would check in the morning. No more! Now I can leave the phone charging across the room (or in a handbag even. Who cares?) I can set this for the ‘sun to set’ at 15, 30, 45, or 60 minutes later. So I set it, and I get in bed and read a book for an hour. Then the “sun goes down” gradually, and I go to bed. Eight hours later, the ‘sun’ starts coming up gradually. So gradually, that at the beginning, you don’t even notice. And you can set sounds in addition to the ‘sunrise’ effect: birds chirping, ocean waves, classical music, or FM radio (although why on earth would you choose FM radio?). You can set two different wake-up ‘alarms’. It doesn’t even feel right to call them alarms, because it’s not obnoxious or loud. It doesn’t jolt you awake. You wake up gradually. This thing is perfect. I’m reading more, sleeping a lot better, and I don’t even remember anymore to grab my phone to check social media in the mornings. In fact, sometimes I’ll be at the office, and it’ll be noon before I realize I left my phone in the car. Drop the dependency on cell phones. It’s ridiculous. We’re like that movie, Wall-E. Get this and improve your life and your quality of sleep.” —Mimi 5000

Get it from Amazon for $149.95.

4.

A super-cozy double-sided blanket with fleece and a warm sherpa lining, because who says you need another person when you wanna cuddle?


Amazon

Promising review: “I never want to use another blanket! It is SO soft and SO comfy. Perfect for snuggling up to read a book on a cold day. Although, I see myself turning the heat down/air up just so I can use this blanket! I will definitely be ordering more as these would make great gifts!” —Anna Henderson

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in four sizes and 20 colors).

5.

A fluffy machine-washable non-skid bathmat made of the softest microfiber your bare feet will ever step on — and your pupper will ever lay on.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “Super plush and soft bath mat. My dog is convinced it’s his new bed it’s so plush. I’m very impressed with the quality for the price.” —KT

Get it from Amazon for $11.89+ (available in five colors and three sizes).

6.

A set of gorgeously lush velvet pillow covers to lend a little color and texture to any room in your house.


Amazon

Promising review: “I used to manage a Pottery Barn and they have stunning velvet pillowcases. I was wondering what these would be like in comparison and honestly, I like these better! I purchased both the mauve pink and the golden khaki color. I’m about to purchase seven more now that I know how beautiful they are. The colors are spot-on and are a tad shiny but velvet should be unless stated otherwise. The brighter colors will be great for spring and summer. The price point is FANTASTIC!!” —MBATLANTA

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $12.99 (available in eight sizes and in 32 colors). And grab some pillow inserts if you need them!

7.

A luxurious faux fur blanket so you feel like you’re living the high life — even if you only have an Amazon budget.


Amazon

Promising review: “I love this blanket! It’s extremely soft, even after my cat steals it and drags it around my apartment.” —bagel

Get it from Amazon for $28.98+ (available in five sizes and in 20 colors).

8.

A round velvet ottoman that’ll make putting your feet up so chic and soft to the touch.


Amazon

Promising review: “This is an adorable petite ottoman. I have placed it in front of a covered chair and when I want to relax, I put my feet on it and it’s perfect. The gray velvet fabric is beautiful and the gold/brass metal bottom gives it a very interesting and unique look. The price is much more affordable here than anywhere else!” —Mia

Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in five colors).

9.

A lightweight microfiber blanket for when you feel like curling up with your favorite book about Arctic exploration but don’t want to actually feel like you’re there with the characters.


Amazon

Promising review: “When this blanket first arrived, I held it up to my face, said ‘It’s so fluffy I’m gonna die!’ and chuckled to myself. I set it up as a throw to make the guest chair in my office a little more inviting and colorful. Little did I know my exclamation would be prophetic. The very next day, I found my furbaby almost too relaxed to remember to breathe. Despite it, he refuses to leave the almost womb-like softness and warmth of this thing which is the blanket equivalent of Flexeril. I can’t get him out of it. I’m afraid I’m going to lose him. Thanks, Bedsure – for a killer blanket. (In all seriousness, the cat is fine. He loves the blanket, and so do I. When he’s willing to share.)” —Ninacarme N Monroe

Get it from Amazon for $15.99+ (available in four sizes and 17 colors).

10.

A decidantly soft velvet memory foam Novogratz futon so comfy you might just **accidentally** fall asleep on the sofa every day.


Amazon

Promising review: “Cat and human approved! Honestly, I’m super impressed. I’ve always wanted a pink, velvet couch that was a sofa bed and this was practically a dream come true. Plus, it’s really affordable. I’m a 110 lb. woman and was able to handle this couch just fine. I really love how compact it is and that they designed it so the cushions can go in the couch (also extra storage space)! I’ll probably get a mattress pad to protect the integrity of the memory foam. Keep in mind this couch is quite firm (which I like, back issues). I absolutely love, love, love this couch!!” —eve

Get it from Novogratz on Amazon for $413.01.

11.

A six-sound noise machine for a gentle and soothing soundtrack to put you right to sleep.


Amazon

Promising review: “Love this sound machine. It gives you the option of a timer (where it auto shuts off after 30, 45, or 60 minutes) or just constant noise. Perfect for a baby who wakes up in the middle of the night and needs a little noise to help coax them back to sleep!” —C.Tyler

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in two options).

12.

A set of thick bath towels made of soft cotton that’ll be waiting to greet you when you walk out of the shower.


Amazon

Promising review: “When you wash them and add fabric softener they plump up like spa towels! Well worth the money. They are fluffy and full. If you have a towel warmer or take them straight out of the dryer after a shower — it is a spa experience.” —Jacob Abba

Get this set of four bath towels from Amazon for $21.87+ (available in 14 colors and two sizes).

13.

An uber-fluffy faux-sheepskin rug perfect for adding a little comfiness to any surface in your house.


Amazon

Promising review: “So soft and fluffy! Bought for our bedroom floor. So nice to step on in the morning. Washes great. Fluffs back up like new. Unfortunately, my basset hound prefers it to her bed, so it gets washed often.” —Mamaw

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in 14 colors and 10 sizes).

14.

An ultrasonic and ultra-quiet cool-mist humidifier complete with an essential oil tray, auto shutoff, night-light, and a large-capacity vaporizer.


Amazon

Promising review: “I put this in my bedroom to help with sinus congestion. This thing is powerful. I cranked it up to high and woke up to 58% humidity, which makes you wake up feeling like you inhaled water. Turned it to low and got 49%, which ended up being about perfect. It can run for about three or four nights on low, and the oil diffuser works well if you put enough oil in it. I wake up feeling the least congested in the 48–50% range.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $54.95+ (available in black and white).

15.

A set of room-darkening velvet curtains to give your living room a glamorous touch.


Amazon

Promising review: “Purchased these for my studio, which is in an old mill. I wanted them for their insulating properties more than to block out the light because my studio loses a lot of heat at night due to its enormous windows. The curtains/drapes work great for both — I am especially pleased with how well they help keep the space from losing heat! Before having the curtains, the space would lose about eight degrees in temperature overnight (which in the winter is a significant amount, especially in the northeast). Now, with the curtains, the space no longer loses heat overnight! It is now so nice to go into my studio in the morning and find it still toasty warm!” —Noname

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in four sizes and seven colors).

16.

A silky shag rug that’ll elevate the style of your home while making your floors feel like luxurious clouds.


Amazon

Promising review: “Buying a rug online is challenging. You just never know what you’re going to get. We absolutely love this rug. It adds coziness and warmth to our living room. We were hesitant to buy because of the price but the quality of this rug makes it the deal of the century. The color has a beautiful sheen and you will love rubbing your feet in it. It’s just shagalistic!” —Jam

Get it from Amazon for $19.51+ (available in eight colors and 22 sizes).

17.

A pair of ultra-plush and fluffy slippers to keep you looking glam and feeling cozy while you run around your house.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Promising review: “These are so darn cute. Everyone on my Insta loves them too! They do shed a bit but that’s just until you break them in. They are a bit higher than your typical slipper. The criss-cross is not one solid piece, it’s two pieces. I would go with your regular size for the room. I got the smaller one because of other reviews and wish I got the 7/8. But you can see in my photos that they are just fine and cute. Super soft and comfy!” —Dijana

Get them from Amazon for $23.99 (available in sizes 5-12 and in five colors).

18.

A freakin’ plush Ugg throw blanket — finally you can bring the coziness of your favorite booties into bed with you.


Nordstrom

Get it from Nordstrom for $98 (available in seven colors).

19.

A voice- or phone-controlled thermostat that’ll learn your preferences based on the time of day and season and make sure your home is always the perfect temperature.


Amazon

Promising review: “I’ve never had a smart thermostat before, so I have nothing to compare it to. But this Nest device is amazing. Even better, the installation instructions are CLEAR and EASY to understand! There are interactive pictures and a text-based set of instructions online that take you through each step, and troubleshoot along the way. The thermostat works with my Google Mini and of course the Nest app. You can program what times you want the house to be at which temp and it will either start heating/cooling at that time, or you can set it to start before then, so it’s nice and comfy when you get home. It has features for dealing with humidity and can even learn your temp preferences and adjust accordingly.” —L Williams

Get it from Amazon for $209+ (available in seven colors).

20.

A fresh and delightful Boy Smells candle made with a blend of coconut wax and beeswax, infused with orange tree bark, tomato juice, honeysuckle nectar, petitgrain, and white tea because nothing is more welcoming than a fresh scent.


Nordstrom

Get it from Nordstrom for $32.

21.

A chunky handmade knit blanket everyone will think a giant made just for you.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “So pretty. I’m in love with how this lightens up my room and makes my bed that much cuddlier. Great quality. Actual thick, chunky wool knitting and the sizing is just as advertised. It does shed fuzz and can get caught and tugged easily but that’s just the maintenance with these types of throw blankets.” —SydRose

Get it from Amazon for $26.88+ (available in 13 sizes and in 17 colors).

22.

A stunning cotton velvet emerald-green sofa, because nothing says “I’m fabulous” more than throwing yourself onto a comfy velvet couch.


CB2

Get it from CB2 for $1,499+ (available in a variety of fabrics and colors).

23.

An inviting microfiber quilt set complete with quilt and two pillow shams for everything you need to make your bed the most inviting place in town. ::wink:: ::wink::


Amazon

Promising review: “I bought this for a vacation home we own. I wanted something lightweight and inexpensive that would do the job. My husband and I visited for a week and we’re so pleasantly surprised. We love this bedding! I’ve always been a big comfy comforter person. Now I’m not, because of this awesome quilt.” —J. Dermody

Get the set from Amazon for $34.99+ (available in three sizes and 16 colors).

24.

A pair of stain-resistant, super-comfy microfiber sheets that are so luxuriously soft you’ll actually be gifting them the lap of luxury.


Amazon

Promising review: “These are by far the best sheets I have ever bought! Super soft and cozy! Not really thick or crisp, which some people like. I am more than pleased and will buy another set for us, and for my son.” —Mary

Get the four-piece set from Amazon for $24.97+ (available in sizes twin-California king and in 43 colors).

25.

A cozy terry cloth bathrobe so the comfiness can travel with you as roam around the house.


Amazon

Promising review: “Love, love, love this robe! It really is plush and luxurious. Hubby and I wear this at night before getting into our swim spa and use it to dry off after getting out. It’s even plusher than our bath towels. It is thicker, so if you are looking for a robe to wear during a warm day, this is not it.” —Jocelyn Shade

Get one robe from Amazon for $29.99 (available in S-XL and in gray, white, and blue).

26.

A faux-fur footstool, because OMG doesn’t it look like a little sheep!! It’s like having a pet sheep without any of the cleanup!


Amazon

Promising review: “I love this footstool! I think this is a great size for a chair and I find it to be sturdy, unique, and interesting-looking. I get so tired of ‘typical’ things. It looks great with my large living room chair.” —K. Mellott

Get it from Amazon for $35.75+ (available in white and black).

27.

A plush sectional sofa with an adjustable chaise to fit your space perfectly.


Amazon

Promising review: “I went out on a limb and bought this before there were any product reviews. I needed a small chaise sectional for my den and this was the perfect size. It offers a mid-centuryish style while still providing comfort requisite for a den (my living room couch is pure mid-century art and not comfy for sitting, haha). The couch was delivered without incident or damage and it was quite easy to put the legs on (note that there is one non-tapered leg that goes under the middle of the couch). The cushions are quite comfy — firm but cushy. The hubs sits on it for a few hours each night and so far, no craters or sags in the cushions at all. The fabric is quite smooth to the touch but has a slightly heathered or tweedy look to it. Overall, I am so pleased with this couch and the price I paid was a steal.” —Heather Coburn-Schill

Get it from Amazon for $799+ (available in four colors).

28.

A handmade cable-knit pouf that’ll be the piece of elevated decor you’ve been looking for!


amazon.com, Amazon

Promising review: “I just recently moved to LA and chose a color scheme of white and gray. I bought two of these to go next to my sofa table (on each side). They are comfy/stiff at the same time. Great pattern, and very strong and good quality material. My dog tried to bite/rip them and nothing happened! I also bought these on Amazon because of the price. I found similar ones at CB2 where I originally looked for $120 each! Buying two of these for $60.00 were a steal, and they look and feel great in my living room.” —Ana Fakiris

Get it from Amazon for $58.99 (available in 17 colors).

29.

A Moroccan-style area rug to help make your freezing cold hardwood floors a little more bearable.


Amazon

Promising review: “I was apprehensive about this because I had drunkenly ordered it the night before without reading any reviews. I was pleasantly surprised (and very relieved) when I laid it out in my living room. It looks like the picture and is SO soft I just want to lay on it all day and never go to work again. Even my dog got excited about it. ALSO if you plan on not screwing the lid on your blue acrylic paint all the way and recklessly leaving it on the rug overnight, you’ll find that a substantial amount of vigorous scrubbing will remove almost all of the stain.” —PublicName

Get it from Amazon for $11.89+ (available in eight colors and 18 sizes).

30.

A giant microfiber bean bag — your sofa is about to have some serious competition.


Amazon

Promising review: “Let me tell you: I did painstaking research about which bean bag I wanted to get. We’re not working with much space to begin with, so I definitely didn’t want something too big. This 5-footer was a perfect choice. It’s honestly SO comfortable I’ve already taken several naps on it — even slept through the night once. It decompressed pretty much instantly and did expand a little more on the second day. Definitely fluff it every once in a while to keep it full. The microsuede cover is super comfortable too and makes it so that you can’t feel the memory foam pieces underneath.” —Salomon D Jeter

Get it from Amazon for $149.99+ (available in 30 colors).

31.

A silky-soft, lightweight throw you’ll use to cuddle up while you Netflix and chill.


Amazon

Promising review: “Received this as a wedding gift. It is lovely. Thin but very nice quality and soft. I love it.” —Cherry

Get it from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in 16 colors and two sizes).

32.

A healthy little plant and adorable mister so you can bring fresh air into your home and, also, keep a plant alive…hopefully.


amazon.com

Promising review: “This is one of my favorite purchases. This brass mister is small (perfect for my wrist arthritis), VERY attractive (I keep it on a shelf with other showy items, like crystal bud vases), and it works — nice, fine mist for my peace lily. I’ve already bought a second one for a gift that was received with many oohs and ahhs. It’s on my list for future gifts. Please don’t discontinue it, it makes a GREAT gift.” —Patty Perfect

Get the mister for $24+ (available in three colors) and explore all the plant options starting at $4.50 on Amazon.

33.

And a Samsung LED 4K smart TV designed with a sturdy frame so your fancy TV transforms into a beautiful piece of art when you’re not watching it — just walk into a room and the built-in motion sensor will activate the display to showcase your favorite selections!


Amazon

Promising review: “Wow, this is an awesome TV!!! The resolution, capabilities, form, and function of this ‘Frame TV’ are astounding! And if you add the additional wood frame, it could definitely pass as artwork! Sound quality is your typical Samsung TV that needs amplification. The minimalist remote is small but mighty. And if you screw up, you can always use the back button to get you out of trouble. Two thumbs up!” —dd3rover

Get it from Amazon for $1,497.99 (available in 65″).
