1.

Resistance bands that come with three different levels of bands in one pack for an at-home workout that’s equally challenging and fun.


amazon.com

“I own these bands and really love them. They’re so much easier to use than basic rubber resistance bands. They’re superrr strong, durable, and come in three resistance levels. I can slide them on my legs easily and don’t have to struggle awkwardly when taking them off. They don’t fold over, too! They stay perfectly in place while I do squats or lunges.” —Ali Napoli

Get a pack of three from Amazon for $19.99+ (available in five colors).


Amazon

“I’ve tried both of these and I’m a little obsessed with using them! The three-in-one deep cleaning set has a handy microfiber cloth in a pouch, a firm-bristle brush to for crusted-on gunk (we all eat lunch at our laptops, admit it), and, my personal favorite, a clever pipe cleaner-like brush to get between your keys. I’m even more obsessed with the double-ended brush, which has a microfiber tip on one side and the WORLD’S SOFTEST retractable bristles on the other. Like, I use this thing more as a fidget toy and for petting the bristles than for cleaning. It’s (understandably) backordered till mid-month, but I ordered a couple that’ll show up in time for Christmas as stocking stuffers. My laptop is so gross that it’s a little past hope, but these tools have definitely helped make clearing out crumbs easier and cleaning my computer more fun. I even use them on the rest of my desk!” —Katy Herman

Get them from Amazon: the keyboard deep clean set for $9.99, and the laptop and screen cleaner for $9.99.

3.

A nachos recipe book filled with a variety of creative, mouthwatering nacho recipes — perfect for prepping for parties or just a night in all alone.


Amazon

“My friend Coco gave me this cookbook for Christmas and it’s soooo gorgeous! I’ve spent, um, lots of money on delivery nachos over the years and uhhhhh maybe I should’ve bought this book back in 2016 when it was first published.” —Elizabeth Lilly

Get it from Amazon for $15.69/hardcover.

4.

Training sneakers that are super comfortable for running and walking, come in a great selection of pretty colors, and will keep you coming back for another pair.


Ryka

“I’ve gone through QUITE a number of sneakers and so far these have felt the most supportive. I have the quartz color (nude/pink) and find that, not only does it feel comfortable to walk/run in, but the color matches almost everything! It’s a fun pink neutral. I was able to jump right into my workout without them rubbing the back of my ankle, creating any blisters, or discomfort. I definitely need to pick up the black pair next!” —Heather Braga

Get them from Ryka for $89.99 (available in four colors, and sizes 5—11 medium/6—11 wide).

5.

A hypo-allergenic sponge infused with exotic perfumes and natural essences for leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth and smelling wonderful.


amazon.com, amazon.com

“I have one of these in my shower right now and I LOVE it! It smells lovely (like roses), it makes my skin feel nice and smooth when I get out of the shower, and I’ve used it about five times now and it still soaps up a lot! It’s also slightly more convenient/quicker than squeezing soap onto a washcloth or luffa. Just grab it and start scrubbin’! Plus, the sponge softens over time, so you don’t have to worry about it being too hard or rough on your skin.” —Kayla Boyd

Get it from Amazon for $39.99.

6.

A lamp that’ll help you relax and fall asleep at night, and best of all, if you’re someone who wakes up before the sun does, it’ll gradually emulate the effect of soft, natural sunlight before your alarm time to make getting out of bed feel less difficult.


Amazon

“I have this amazing lamp, and I absolutely love it! The RelaxBreathe function is perfectly time to help me calm down at night, and is much easier to fall asleep to than my old method of just setting the sleep timer on my TV. The wake-up light brightness is just enough that it makes waking up before the sun more bearable. I’ve also used the wake-up light feature all night as a night light, too!” —Sam Wieder

Get it from Amazon for $194.95+ (available in two styles).

7.

A SodaStream so you can make sparkling water, soda, and other fizzy beverages right from the comfort of your own home, just with the push of a button.


amazon.com

It comes with the sparkling water maker, a 60L CO2 cylinder, and a 1 liter BPA-free reusable carbonating bottle. It features three levels of fizz you can choose from, and each cylinder can carbonate up to 60 liters of water.

“I got one of these a few months ago, and let me tell you, I LOVE it. My roommate and I were going through six-packs of seltzer so fast, and I thought this would be a good alternative. It’s super easy to use. All you have to do is fill the water bottle, insert it, and press the button three to five times to get perfect seltzer water. We keep a few lime slices in the fridge to add some natural fruit flavoring, and it’s G2G. I loved mine so much that when I told my mom about it (who also loves seltzer), she got one too and also loves it.” —Abby Kass

Get it from Amazon for $116.99+ (available in two colors).

8.

A lip balm to help heal dry, painful, chapped lips. Chapped lip sufferers — you know the feeling all too well of trying every chapstick and balm under-the-sun only to experience temporary relief. This lip balm helps keep lips soft and smooth even AFTER it wears off.


Natalie Brown / BuzzFeed

“Meet Lanolips 101 Ointment: the balm that actually softened and hydrated my lips the VERY first time I applied it — and with regular use, has left them soft and crack-free and actually kept them that way!! Even. After. It. Wears. Off!!

It is kinda goopy and sticky to apply — a little goes a *very long* way — and usually wears off in a couple of hours thanks to my lip-licking (tho it does stay on all night while I sleep), but I DO NOT CARE. When it does wear off, I’m left with soft, peel-free lips that don’t hurt when I smile! And the strawberry flavor just makes me happy.” —Natalie Brown

9.

A night guard you can literally order off Amazon — they’ll send you a mold to bite into at home (like you would at the dentist), you’ll mail it in, and then you’ll get back your custom mouth guard at a fraction of the price of what you’d pay your dentist.


amazon.com

“I’m a stressed-out person by nature, so I grind my teeth while I sleep (and sometimes while awake). After my dentist told me insurance wouldn’t cover a mouth guard, I decided to head to Amazon for an over-the-counter option. This cuts out the middle man and delivers a completely custom mouth guard for less than half the price that the dentist was charging. The service sends you a mold that you bite and mail it in, and they send you back your mouth guard. I’ve had it for about half a year and it’s still working great. You can also read another BuzzFeed review on why it’s so great.” —Bek O’Connell

Get it from Amazon for $119.99.


Urban Outfitters

“I *finally* caved and got a Fjallraven Kanken backpack specifically for traveling. I like bringing my DSLR camera on trips, as well as other items to make sure I’m prepared when I’m taking tours and walking around all day. Unfortunately, those items can’t fit inside a little crossbody bag, and carrying around a tote bag puts a lot of weight on one shoulder. So I got this bag because it’s simple yet stylish, holds a lot of stuff comfortably, and is definitely gonna last through all my trips. I packed this baby up and I still have extra room for souvenirs!” —Jasmin Suknanan

Get it from Amazon for $78 (available in 64 colors), or Urban Outfitters for $80 (available in 11 colors).

11.

Pearl hair clips for a super pretty accessory no one will believe you bought off of Amazon, but don’t worry, we won’t spill your secret if you don’t.


Amazon

“I bought these hair clips and they look SO great IRL! I’ve been wearing them all the time.” —Maitland Quitmeyer

Get a pack of eight from Amazon for $6.99.

12.

A comforter so fluffy and comfortable, it’s appropriately titled, “The Cloud.” So if you ever dreamed of what it was like to quite literally sleep in the clouds, now you can get pretty darn close to doing so.


Buffy

“I recently got a Buffy and I am L-O-V-I-N-G it! It actually feels noticeably cool the minute you unbox it and honestly feels like a cloud that’s hugging you when you get into bed. If you’re a tosser and turner like me, this stays on! I usually sweat — to be clear I am closer to a furnace than human — through the night and I’ve woken up dry every morning since. Plus, I love that it’s cruelty-free and sustainable!” —Emma McAnaw

Get it from Buffy for $130+ (available in three sizes).

“I’ve had sensitive skin my entire life and learned that I had eczema specifically at around 11 years old. After years of trying almost every sensitive skin product on the market, CeraVe has become one of the ONLY sensitive skincare brands that I can use every product in its lineup. The products also work well with the topical medication that my dermatologist prescribed me. CeraVe products cleared up eczema patches on my neck and face in as few as two days and have continued to keep them at bay. My holy grails are the Hydrating Facial Cleanser, the Eye Repair Cream (cleared up my dry, peeling lids overnight), and the Eczema Daily Skin Care Set.

FYI: Cerave products have also earned the seal of acceptance from the National Eczema Association.” —Marquaysa Battle

Get the Hydrating Facial Cleanser (left) from Amazon for $13.91+ (available in two sizes), a pack of two Eye Repair Creams (right) from Amazon for $21.54, or check out the rest of the amazing CeraVe skincare products available for purchase on Amazon.

Toilet night lights featuring a motion sensor that’ll turn on when it detects movement and stay on for two minutes, so you don’t have to fumble around in the dark during your middle-of-the-night bathroom trip.


amazon.com, amazon.com

Requires three AAA batteries — not included, but you can buy them right here!

“When I lost power in my apartment for almost two days, I had no heat 🙃, no electricity, and no bathroom lights. Thank god my boyfriend insisted on attaching one of these, because it meant I no longer had to pee in total darkness — which still makes me nervous even though I’m supposed to be an adult.” —Melanie Aman

Get a pack of two from Amazon for $14.89.

15.

Electric light blocks so you can channel your creativity and imagination into building a cool structure and then turn the lights off and turn the switch on the blocks to show off your masterpiece!


UncommonGoods

Comes with the building blocks, one base, a USB cable, a DC cable, and three AAA batteries!

“Fun fact: I got these over the holidays and I LOVE THEM. So many structures you can build, the options are limitless. You can make it even cooler by keeping the light off while you build and then flip the switch on the base when you’re ready to make your creation come to life!” —Jen Tonti

Get a pack of 36 from UncommonGoods for $30.

16.

A silk sleep mask that’ll serve as the perfect combination of a lightweight, soft mask, that feels just thick enough to provide the perfect amount of pressure. Sweet dreams!


Sephora

“OK, LISTEN. I know this sleep mask is $50 and I would normally scoff at a price like that for something so simple, but people, this is no ordinary sleep mask. I didn’t even know I *had* opinions on sleep masks until I tried this. It rests delicately on your eyes with minimal pressure so you don’t feel like you’re wearing anything, yet you can still gently feel the silk. I can’t explain it but it’s truly magic and I’ve already gifted one to my bestie (who loves it as much as I do!).” —Kayla Suazo

Get it from Sephora for $50 (available in nine colors).

17.

A super trendy cover-up you’ll want to wear to all your beach outings, pool trips, and tropical destination vacations.


Amazon

“I picked up this cover-up for a tropical journey and it was great. Stylish, flowy, and with just enough peek-a-boo to show off my bathing suit. It only comes in one size, but it was def roomy and able to fit my DDD boobies without a problem.” –Elena Garcia

Get it from Amazon for $22.99 (available in o/s).

18.

A book filled with useful tips and action plans for helping young, driven people find and keep their love match. Because serious dating, especially in the age of Tinder, can be tricky and unpredictable.


Amazon, amazon.com

“I have such bad luck with guys that I could literally create an entire podcast on just my dating woes. I, like many other people, was just confused as to why I wasn’t getting the type of connection that I knew I deserved, and this book really changed my perspective on modern dating. After reading Jenna Birch’s Love Gap: A Radical Plan to Win in Life and Love, I realized that it’s so easy to tell yourself that ‘he’s not interested’ because he left you on read and it’s been a few days, or ‘she’s too busy’ with her friends to notice you. If you feel something you haven’t felt with anyone else, swallow your damn pride and give it a shot! But that’s just one of the many useful points in this book — you’ll have to snag a copy to hear them all!” —Jasmin Suknanan

Get it from Amazon for free/Audiobook, $14.99/Kindle, or $17.19/hardcover.

19.

An hourglass-shaped accent table to use as an additional little coffee table, nightstand, or just a nice decorative piece in your home, without having to blow your last paycheck.


Amazon

“I’ve used this stool as a nightstand for about a year now and love it! It’s easy to clean and I keep things like a notebook and extra sleeping masks inside. The best part is it’s sleek and aesthetically pleasing, so it would look good in any room.” —Yi Yang

Get it from Amazon for $38.18+ (available in four colors).

20.

A splurgeworthy, emphasis on “worthy,” bath towel that’s super soft, chic-looking, and will serve as a simple way to make people think you have it all together, even when the rest of your life and home is a crumbling mess.


Crane & Canopy

“I started buying Crane & Canopy towels after my apartment became the official place for my extended family to stay when they visit New York. I wanted to have towels that tricked them into thinking I have my life together, and these certainly did the trick! They are incredibly soft, even after going through brutal washes at the laundromat, and they make my bathroom look chic. I never thought I’d be someone who would splurge on towels, until I got these in my life. They’re no longer a splurge…they’re a necessity.” —Mal Mower

Get it from Crane & Canopy for $36 (available in six colors).

21.

A brown sugar body scrub to help leave your skin looking toned and moisturized — the brown sugar crystals work by aiding in preventing moisture loss, while polishing away dry skin. Not to mention, it smells super yummy.


amazon.com

“I’ve never been more in love with a body scrub!! I wanted an exfoliating scrub that would slough off dry skin but simultaneously moisturize and bought this because of all the super moisturizing oils listed as ingredients. When you open the jar, you can see that the sugar is literally saturated in the oil mixture. It exfoliates really well and leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth, and hydrated for days! I used this all summer and literally glowed! You’ll love this so much and go through it so quickly that I actually recommend the two-pack.” —Jasmin Suknanan

Get it from Amazon for $14.98.


Amazon

“I have and love this case! It’s super cute and feels well made. It comes with four slots for your game cartridges. The flap has magnet snaps so everything can stay in place.” —Bek O’Connell

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

23.

A refillable journal with a cool, vintage-feel so you can write down memories of trips you take while you’re away, but you can also use it for everyday journaling as well!


Amazon

“I got this journal years ago because of its vintage feel, and because I wanted a way to hand-write my memories from all the trips I went on — totally worth it!!!! I never go on a trip without this journal. Every night in my hotel room, I sit down and write a detailed recap of the day before I go to bed. Years later, I still read my journal entries when I want to get excited about a future trip.

The pages are unlined so you can write, draw, paste photos, etc. I like pasting small postcards (larger ones will not fit) and polaroid photos from my trip. It’s the perfect little journal for traveling!” —Jasmin Suknanan

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

24.

An overnight spa mask (that can also be used as a cream or a wash-off mask), but let’s be real, the best kind of skincare is the kind where you can apply before bed, go to sleep, and wake up in the morning having already treated your skin AS YOU SLEPT!


Amazon

“I recently got a facial and the facialist recommended this overnight mask for dry winter skin — it’s really great (not too heavy), and wasn’t too greasy for my sensitive-combination skin. No more flakiness!” —Maitland Quitmeyer

Get it from Amazon for $15.90.

25.

A round dining table that comes in a variety of beautiful colors and finishes and will fit in great in just about any living space!


Amazon

“I recently moved and upgraded from a regular ol’ square dining table to this practical and attractive round one. So far, I love it! Not only does it fit with my decor perfectly, but the tabletop is very stable, which can be a concern with drop-leaf tables. It wasn’t hard to put together at all and it looks much more expensive than it is!” —Yi Yang

Get it from Amazon for $138.91 (available in 23 finishes).

26.

Chelsea boots that may just become your new go-to shoes. They’re super cute, well-made, and just add a perfect finishing touch to pretty much any outfit you choose to wear them with.


Nisolo

“I have these boots and L-O-V-E them! They’re a great everyday boot that looks amazing with basically everything and ~elevates~ whatever you pair them with. They took a little time to break in around the toe box for me, but 10/10 would do it again. I highly recommend!” —Rachel Dunkel

Get them from Nisolo for $228 (available in four colors, and sizes 6—10).

27.

An extendable tub and tile scrubber that’ll help cut cleaning time in half as it makes it so much more simple to clean in hard-to-reach, high/low places in your bathroom!


Amazon

“I own this and it helps me clean my shower twice as fast. It won’t take up too much space in your bathroom and it’ll also be super easy for you to clean the scrubber part. This thing will come in handy for anyone but it’s especially a good option for anyone who has neck and/or back pains that prevent them from reaching certain spots in their shower.

I have asthma so cleaning my bathroom can be much more of a task than it is for other folks. I get winded quickly so I love cleaning products and tools that help me get stuff done faster and easier, which is why this scrubber stick thingy is my JAM. Also, the scrubber part is replaceable so there’ll be no buyer’s remorse when it wears out from all the scrubbing you’re about to do.” —Marquaysa Battle

Get it from Amazon for $12.99.

28.

A gel moisturizer for hydrating your skin without leaving your pores feel clogged or your face feeling greasy or heavy.


amazon.com

“This is one of my favorite moisturizers! The best part is that it takes what feels like seconds to absorb. It just melts right in, gives my skin a serious ~plump bump~, and it’s so satisfying to apply. And because you can barely feel it once it’s on, it’s one of the few moisturizers I actually enjoy wearing under my makeup. My skin errs on the combination side, especially during the summer, and this gel-like formula (even though it has ‘cream’ in its name) deeply hydrates without clogging my pores or generally upsetting it. It’s also slightly cooling, which is awesome, and you only need a small amount of it to cover your whole face!” —Sarah Han

Get it from Amazon for $17.50.

29.

A sleep system that’ll allow you and your partner to each get your own duvet to cater to your own temperature needs at night. And if you happen to be fans of cuddling, don’t worry, this won’t get in the way of that!


Ervét Bedding

“My husband and I got this duvet cover rather recently and (as two people who *thought* we liked cuddling) we weren’t sure we would love this. We were wrong. My husband runs at approximately 832 degrees at night and I hate sleeping hot, but I still want to be under covers. This has completely solved that problem. He no longer gets attacked by my icy toes and I no longer melt beside him, but we both stay covered and our bed looks lovely. I’d say I don’t have words to describe how much I love these, but I just wrote a whole paragraph about a duvet set…so it looks like I did.” —Mal Mower

Get it from Everét Bedding for $319+ (available in six colors, three sizes, and six comforter insert options).

30.

A hilarious book filled with satirical essays on “acting like a lady.” If you’re someone who enjoys your humor erring on the side of sarcasm, you’re sure to get a kick out of this read.


Amazon

“I grabbed this from my parents’ local library while I was visiting them for a spell over Christmas and read it in a day. OK, you don’t have to be Southern to enjoy it. I put it on my Insta story and several friends downloaded the audiobook ASAP. If you may even be 50% against an essay titled ‘How to Watch Pornography Like a Lady’ (like a one-star reviewer on the Amazon listing) do not pick up this book. But if you’re reading BuzzFeed, you’ll likely dig the author’s humor.” —Elizabeth Lilly

Get it from Amazon for free/Audiobook, $11.99/Kindle, $13.29/hardcover, or $15.95/paperback.

31.

A matte lipstick that’s vegan, cruelty-, paraben-, sulfate-, and phthalate-free, but packed with intense pigment and a moussy texture to give your lips a velvety lewk.


Winky Lux

“I’ve gotten tons of positive comments on this lippie and it’s my absolute fave for several reasons. It’s soft, smooth, and not very drying, and it’s cruelty-, paraben-, and sulfate-free! The rounded shape of the bullet is MIRACULOUS. I’m talking the kind of lipstick that even clumsy old me can put on perfectly without looking in the mirror. It’s the perfect size bullet for my lips, too, and it wears down to form to the curve of your lips, whereas smaller bullets just stay kinda flat. And people, it stays the heck on. I’m not saying it can totally survive multiple meals, but it never claims to. But for a regular lipstick to still look fab after I have a snack and drink out of my water bottle a ton? That’s a big win for me. I’ve even gotten my mom into it! Check out my full review here (#9).” —Katy Herman

Get it from Winky Lux for $15.

32.

Waterproof boots for wearing in wet weather and beyond. Yeah, you’ll definitely want to wear these in the snow and rain, but you’ll also want to wear them every other day, too!


Toms

“I have these boots in black, and I love them. They’re super stylish and not bulky at all, and the def keep my feet very warm. I’ve worn these all day and even walked a lot in them, and they are comfortable and didn’t hurt my feet at all. I was on a personal mission to find a cute boot I could wear in the snow but then also not feel the need to change them once I got to work, and these definitely fit the bill.” —Abby Kass

Get them from Toms for $89.99 (available in three colors, and sizes 5—11).

33.

A super fun card game one reviewer describes as “a multi-player competitive speed solitaire” for playing with your friends at a party or your family during a night spent inside the house doing nothing.


Dutch Blitz

“One of my friends brought this to a party and we ended up playing it until 4 a.m. in the morning! It’s one of those games that literally everyone will enjoy.” —Yi Yang

Get it from Amazon for $10.48.

34.

Missha M Magic Cushion that provides long-lasting coverage, without leaving your face looking cakey. Plus, it’s made with bamboo water, baobab tree fruit extract, and witch hazel to leave your skin feeling smooth and hydrated in the process.


Amazon, amazon.com

“I’ve used this and absolutely love how it feels on my skin and leaves it with such a clean and pretty glow! It doesn’t get cakey and just settles in and becomes part of your skin. With this cushion’s sponge applicator and weightless foundation, all you do is dab, dab, dab and you’re done! It conceals dark circles as well, while witch hazel soothes your skin and bamboo water and baobab fruit hydrate. AND it has sun protection. What more do you need?” —Nusrat Sultana

Get it from Amazon: shade no. 21 for $9.80, shade no. 23 for $9.70, and shade no. 27 for $12.50.

35.

A packing cube set to ease the chore of… packing a suitcase. Vacations are wonderful and great, but packing for them? Not so much. This helps to keep your belongings organized and compact so you can just throw these cubes in, and voila!


amazon.com

“I have these packing cubes and cannot recommend them enough. I went on a two week vacation to New Zealand and just KNEW that by the time I got home my suitcase was going to look like two tornados kissing. But with the cubes, my suitcase was neat and tidy for the entire trip. By the end of week one, I found myself spontaneously yelling ‘I love the CUBES!’ in a Seinfeld-adjacent voice, much to the dismay of everyone I was traveling with. But what can I say? I love these stinkin’ cubes.” —Rachel Dunkel

Get a pack of four cubes and a laundry bag from Amazon for $19.99 (available in nine colors).
