An air fryer (made by Instant Pot!!!) that’ll bring all your crispy faves right to your kitchen — aka you’ll actually save money over time now that you don’t have to run out for your fried chicken fix. And! It can *also* roast, broil, bake, reheat, and dehydrate. Talk about all-in-one.
A bottle of Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 to maintain healthy-looking strands, even if you routinely dye and bleach your hair.

Just look at that bb go to WORK on dirt:
A pair of heeled Doc Martens for ~kicking~ up your style without sacrificing an ounce of comfort. Reviewers say these last forever (like any good ol’ pair of Docs), can be worn all darn day, and never make their feet hurt. Guess I’ll be wearing these for the rest of my life.
A Levoit air purifier that’ll capture allergens, pet hair, dander, mold, and even odor (goodbye, litter box stink) so your home finally feels CLEAN all the time. Its three-in-one filtration system effectively improves your indoor air quality — something anyone with shedding pets knows is a year-round ~situation~.
A pair of wireless Beats headphones to seriously upgrade your workout experience — so long, tangled wires. These have a clever ear hook so you don’t need to worry about them falling out, sound *crystal clear*, and are sweat-resistant. Or! They’re great for everyday activities, like video meetings, walks, you name it.
A Slip silk pillowcase, because this’ll put an end to painful knotting (and frizzing) for anyone with thick, curly hair. Is it an investment? Yes. But it’ll last longer than most pillow cases (with proper care), and leave your hair in one piece.
An Always pan that’ll do the work of ~eight~ essential cooking tools, but in one streamlined design. It comes with a steam lid (that locks when you *don’t* want to steam), steamer basket, pouring spout, and a nesting spatula with a built-in rest. Did I mention it’s truly nonstick? Consider this your ultimate sous chef.
A memory-foam dog bed so even your most stressed-out fur child feels soothed at night, especially if they have joint pain or arthritis.

A Braun epilator for longer-lasting hair-removal results if you prefer to shave, but are starting to get fed up with maintaining it (and getting razor burn). It comes with a full kit to trim, epilate, and style your bikini line — and the payoff is for *weeks*, instead of just days.
A subscription to Obé Fitness that’ll give you access to your favorite kinds of boutique workout classes, even if they’re currently unavailable IRL. And! You’ll actually end up saving money when sticking to this, instead of shelling out $30 for your usual Pilates class.
And! A cushioned, nonslip yoga mat to make working out at home much more comfortable than when trying to do lunges on your hardwood floor. Its double layer design provides optimal grip (hello, burpees), has extra cushioning to absorb shock (and keep those knees comfy), plus it’s longer and wider than most yoga mats.
A microfiber laundry ball, because this’ll collect microfibers shed by your clothes (its design was inspired by the way coral filters the ocean) so you can dispose of them properly — and keep said synthetic materials out of our waterways. Fuzz = gone. Oceans = cleaner.
A nugget ice maker so you can have perfectly-sized, crunchy ice in every single drink without having to wrestle with a stubborn tray (or buy some from the store every week). It’s quiet, fast, and compact so you don’t have to worry about counter space.
A modern-looking desk chair for upgrading your at-home workspace — your sore back would really appreciate a break from your kitchen chair. Its ergonomic backrest is designed to fit the natural curve of your mid-back so afternoons no longer involve an aching spine.
A Tatcha SPF 35 sunscreen that’ll instantly become a must-have for anyone with sensitive skin. It protects you from the sun without breaking you out *and* doubles as a primer to blur pores and uneven skin tones. PLUS, it leaves your skin super soft thanks to Japanese wild rose and loquat leaf extract. Need proof for how well this bb works? Just see the difference below:
A gourmet truffle hot sauce to put on anything and everything you eat — it may be pricier than your usual hot sauce, but it tastes d-i-v-i-n-e on everything it touches (including ice cream!). You don’t have to upgrade your cooking — just add this to your recipes.
A makeup-removing towel, because this’ll be the ultimate lazy solution for getting every last drop of foundation and mascara off before hitting the sheets. All you need is this and water to remove a ~full face~ so you can STOP going to bed with makeup on (a *super* avoidable cause for breakouts).
A subscription to Home Chef so you can explore different dishes and even improve your cooking skills without any of the struggle (or going to the grocery store IRL). You can choose new meals (two to six) every week based off your dietary preferences and restrictions, as well as how much time you want to commit to cooking. Then they’re delivered right to your door!
A Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush for reaching the pinnacle of oral care. It works to drastically improve gum health and remove plaque and staining (which in turn will naturally whiten your teeth). AND! It features two buttons — one to turn on and one to switch between modes — so you can choose cleaning modes more easily and without splattering your mirror.
A pressure washer that’ll keep your home looking clean and new, no matter HOW many storms or just general wear-and-tear comes your way. Splurging on this once for consistent maintenance > paying $$$ for pro services.

An electric milk frother for becoming your own barista right at home whenever you’re craving a creamy cappuccino (it can also make hot chocolate!). It turns out we *don’t* need to pay $15 for frothy treats — brb, working on my foam art skills.
An alarm clock that’ll wake you up to a gentle, gradual sunrise (how our bodies were evolved to wake up). It’s a splurge, but people say this seriously helped them feel less stressed in the morning and more capable of taking on the day, all thanks to not being ~jolted~ awake first thing in the morning.
A pair of ~truly~ high-rise, cropped jeans to put an end to your quest for denim that actually sits above your hips. Plus! Madewell jeans are well-known for lasting forever and never losing their shape, even if you constantly wear the same pair. Translation: you may officially consider these your soulmate.
A Le Creuset Dutch oven, because you’ll quickly join the bandwagon of people who SWEAR by this high-end kitchenware brand (including Julia Child, just saying). And for good reason — not only will this look ::chef kisses fingers:: in your kitchen, but it’s designed with high-quality cooking in mind. Its durable interior browns meat evenly and quickly, cooks food beautifully, and works on every kind of stovetop (even outdoor grills up to 500 degrees F).

A Chef iQ smart pressure cooker, because this’ll completely upgrade your recipe game. It can pressure cook, slow cook, sear/sauté, steam, and more. And! It has a built-in scale to measure your ingredients by weight (no measuring cups needed), as well as smart auto pressure release technology to gently let out steam when it’s done cooking.
My boobs the first time I wear a strapless bra that actually stays in place:
