The black weights around a pair of ankles raised in the sky


Amazon

Promising review: “Bala Bangles has truly reinvented wrist/ankle weights. I am actually not embarrassed to wear these in public. In fact, I people ask me all the time where I purchased these from. Bala is comfortable throughout the workout and actually intensifies it as well — I thought, 1lb, no way will I truly be able to tell the difference… WRONG. I often have to take these off halfway into my class because it’s that much more challenging. I also travel a ton for work and these are easily packable and great to utilize in my hotel room/gym if I can’t make it to a workout class. This is now the second color I have purchased and could not be happier with the product. How someone did not think of this sooner I will never know… But I am glad because Bala Bangles did it right. They are worth every penny. I highly recommend this product to any and everyone.” —Jules Lee

Model hugging a pillow with the silk pillowcase on it in black


Slip

The pillowcase is made from 100% silk, which is less absorbent than other fibers. This means that all those products you put on your skin and in your hair stay where they belong. Plus, silk reduces friction, causing less pulling on both your hair and skin — leaving both looking and feeling better when you wake up in the morning.

Promising review: “This is an investment, and it is so worth it. I have curly frizzy hair, and this has been a lifesaver. I actually wake up with my curls looking okay rather than a crazed clown. The pillowcase is soft and no doubt good for my skin. You do have to hand wash it, which isn’t too difficult and it dries super quick too.” —Peanut13

These things tune themselves in a sense, and they sound fantastic. Anything sounds wonderful in these, and they have excellent bass and clarity all mixed into one. I’m telling you they are worth every penny, durable as all get out and I have been using them nonstop since I got them. I am listening to music through them right now while writing this review.” —pTsDaD Workshop

I find it’s shaped SLIGHTLY different than my white 7-inch one, and I like that. I also find no squeaking noise as I pull or push it from the basin of the toilet, unlike my white one.

Promising review: “Who knew you could love a water bottle? This thing is great. When my other bottle started to get a funny smell even with regular deep cleaning, I finally decided to switch to glass. I find I drink more water because this bottle is so easy to carry around everywhere. It runs through the dishwasher nicely and I also bought a small brush to clean it that works well. Yes, it was not cheap but it is so worth it. Consider it an investment in your health!” —GG

A towel warmer, because they’ll never feel fancier than when they step out of the warm shower in winter and avoid freezing by wrapping themselves into a warm towel that feels like a big hug. Ahhhh!

The circular-shaped bin in grey with a lid and wood handle and a small screen on the front


Amazon

It fits about two towels (or even a towel and a robe or other fabric items) and has a 15-minute adjustable timer.

Promising review: “I bought one for myself, then bought several others as presents because it’s so nice. It’s fairly small and easy to find space for even in a small bathroom but is also big enough to hold two large towels at a time. There are a few small things to watch for: occasionally the on button takes a bit of finagling to work; it takes about eight minutes to hit ‘maximum’ towel warmth; if the lid is askew/not fully on the towel loses a lot of heat; there’s a bit of a plastic odor that goes away after the first few uses. But if you’re aware of those things it’s super luxurious and worth every penny, having a super warm towel waiting for you counters all the misery of having to leave the shower in the winter. It also makes a great present, it’s the kind of luxury item people don’t normally think to get for themselves but makes life so much better. Anybody who says you can’t buy happiness obviously hasn’t bought a towel warmer.” —Heather

The Snoo — a smart bassinet with automatic rocking motions and soothing white noise that may just be a lifesaver to new parents, because it’s designed to help their newborn baby (up to 6 months) actually sleep at night while looking good sitting in their bedroom.

Amazon

This may seem a little extravagant, but I used to work for parenting magazines, and this was all the rage. I had a coworker test it out, and she came back from maternity leave swearing by it. It detects when your baby is fussy and will rock and give off white noise to help them fall back asleep — so you can get more precious sleep at night and be better prepared to take care of your bundle of joy in the morning. It comes with three hip-safe sleep sack swaddles and an app to help you control the settings to fit your baby’s needs.

Promising review: “This thing is expensive, but it works. After going 48+ hours with no sleep from birth to recovery at the hospital, it was amazing to come home and have the baby be quickly soothed by the Snoo. It took me hours to calm his wailing at the hospital recovery ward. The Snoo soothes him in about 30 seconds or less. After some sleep deprivation, I would’ve paid twice as much for the results this thing achieves! If you can afford it, you must buy this!” —Mat

A personalized whiskey barrel that not only will look super cool sitting on their bar cart, but is actually designed to age spirits to their peak flavor, making whatever alcohol they put inside taste even better.

A small and large barrel on stands with spouts and personalized label on the front


Uncommon Goods

The petite proportions of the barrel also make the aging process go faster, so the spirit will hit its prime 10 times faster. The oak has three components that add flavor: lignin, which adds vanilla and marzipan, lactones, which adds butter and coconut notes, and tannins, which add astringent flavors. Before use, the barrel should be cured for three to five days. Plus, check this out for even more info on the barrel.

After selecting the style of the barrel you want to give as a gift, you click the personalize button and then add the name, distillery name, the year established, and the city and state.

Promising review: “We have a minibar set up with whiskey glasses and stones and the barrel, and my husband is making his own whiskey. He loves offering people to try his homemade whiskey! It’s a gift that can be used forever! Plus, it adds to our decorations, which makes me happy as well!” —NEUMANNS WHISKEY

Promising review: “We are also shocked by the sound quality of the TV and the bass response in particular. The best feature of the TV, however, is the fact the electronics are remote, and the thing truly looks like a piece of art, albeit with a modern-looking frame. We opted to add the white bezel, and the TV blends in very well with the wall and surrounding furniture.” —Amazon Customer

Promising review:You wouldn’t ever think you needed a ‘portable’ speaker in you home, but once you try it, you’ll love it. This speaker is one of three Bose speakers that we use for a great music experience, and the great thing about this speaker is you grab the handle, unplug it, and bring it to wherever you want. Additionally, I love Alexa on the Bose speakers. It’s very easy to set up and use and I’m happy with the functionality of it.” —theAKDeezy

Not only is it size-adjustable to accommodate different tubs, it comes equipped with a wineglass holder, edges that safely prop up a book or tablet, a candle holder, and extra space for whatever else their cozy heart desires.

Promising review: “When I placed my order for this tray I looked at the pics but did not realize how really cool this piece is. The ability to change the size is great, but I just love the different trays that are removable as well as the ability to put my phone and a Kindle in ‘safe’ areas of the tray. I found a perfect place for my TV remote should I want to watch TV and not read. I just got it and used it last night but it appears to be well-made, balanced, and offers versatility for the things you may want at your fingertips when taking a luxurious bath!” —SindiMcG

Promising review: “I admired the Mirror for a full year before taking the plunge six months ago, and my only regret is that I did not buy it sooner. Not only does it look stunning in our home when it’s off, but the Mirror workouts have truly changed my life. I adore the variety of classes and the instructors are inspiring beyond words. I’m currently pregnant and being able to keep up my fitness at home, with the support and guidance of an incredible community of motivating instructors, has been transformational. My friends have recently said I should be an ambassador for the Mirror because I love it and recommend it so much! Hands down the best investment I’ve made in my fitness in my 33 years on this planet.” —mayapapaya
