Promising review: “So I purchased this to organize and create a laundry system. Up until this point, I used one basket for everything. Wow. What a time saver this has been. I now do wash when any baby (2) or adult (2) are running low on their clothes. My husband is size L or XL and just one of the bags held one week’s worth of clothes. This most definitely simplified my laundry.” —Mackenzie

Amazon

Promising review: “I bought this on a whim for my teenage son for a smaller Christmas gift. He loves it! It definitely has the stress ball element but because of its size and density, he and his friends love playing with it too. They play catch and a dodgeball like game that they call Arghh Ball. He took it with us to the mountains and I notice he usually takes it when going to a friend’s house. He’s only had it for a few weeks. It has been used so much and taken quite a beating but has held up really well. I will definitely be buying a couple more.” —Amazon Customer

Promising review: “Tea Drops + an electric kettle equals a super simple and mess-free way to prepare your tea. Especially in the mornings when you’re getting yourself together or in a hurry. Taste is on point, doesn’t need any sweeteners. Overall very smooth teas. You do get a few tea particles at the bottom of your cup, which I thought might be an issue, but it turned out not to be troublesome at all. I would definitely recommend it!” —Arpan

Even a simple weed from the yard can turn this into a stylish addition to the kitchen fridge. When I see a cute tiny flower outside that would be too small for a regular vase I will put it in this little magnet so I can enjoy it a bit longer. Cool mini magnet!” —Christy

Everyone in your house will think you have the greenest thumb ever, while this baby does the legwork for you.

Promising review: “Love this new garden! It’s my fourth AeroGarden and they just keep getting better. This one has a very sleek design and takes up less space than I thought it would without sacrificing grow space or water capacity. Set up was a breeze with the display walking me through the steps. I love that on their larger gardens you can set the time on the garden, plus this one is wifi enabled so I can keep track of my garden’s needs on my phone! My favorite new feature though is vacation mode, which will slow down the light and water use so I don’t have to worry about my plants so much when I’m out of town. I can’t wait for my plants to grow. I recommend it!!” —Ted

Amazon

Promising review: “The power went out so I bought three to four of these for emergencies. Now, I use them every day. I loved them so much, I bought like 10 more to replace our nightstand lamps and to give them out as gifts. They are both functional and beautiful. I use them to walk around at night in the house without disturbing others to the bathroom or working late. I will also be taking them camping soon. It is dimmable, and bright enough to read or low enough to use as a night light. Having four completely lights up a whole room. The handle is brilliant. That is one of the best features.” —latte happy

A light therapy lamp you may find gives you and anyone around it a mood boost. It’s UV-free, yet the light is designed to mimic a bright sunny day.


Amazon, amazon.com

Promising review: “I have been using this therapy lamp for about a week now, and I have noticed a considerable improvement in my mood. I find that 30 minutes works the best for me. As far as the lamp itself goes, it is well made and has three brightness settings. It doesn’t get hot. I have mine sitting on a wooden base in the photo, but only for decorative reasons. I am a grad student in psychology and I am always looking for things that can help people. I believe this one really does.” —Mandy Ashcraft

A versatile storage ottoman for anyone who wants storage space, a place to sit, and a place to eat all in one piece of furniture. Once your roommate learns of its magic, they will totally want their own!

Amazon

The small ottoman fits into the large one when not in use, genius.

Promising review: “Very pleased with this purchase. The ottoman is very attractive and despite being faux leather, the quality is very nice. Living in a modest-sized apartment in New York, the fact that it can easily serve all of the functionality of an ottoman, small coffee table, tray, and storage unit makes it extremely useful when space comes at a premium. There are a lot of similar products, but the fact the top to this one reverses as a fully functional tray is what helped separate this from the rest. The mini ottoman/stool is a nice touch, but keeping it inside the ottoman itself eliminates the storage functionality of the product, so there is a bit of a trade-off there. We’ve been able to stash it elsewhere and use it when needed, so it’s actually a nice bonus. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a nice bit of modern and functional furniture.” —Mike Moore

A Privacy Pop bed tent to give yourself a sense of privacy at night, or to help you build a no-bug allowed sleep zone. My brother once saw my bed tent, immediately crawled in, and stayed there for the rest of his visit. Needless to say, I got him his own as a birthday gift.

Privacy Pop

The privacy pop tent is made with mesh windows and fold up doors (with doubled-sided zippers!) for airflow, adaptability, and privacy. The tent is compatible with air mattresses, spring-coiled, foam beds, and futons (mattress not included); and it can be set up on the floor, on a platform, bed frame, or on a box spring.

Promising review: “I bought a twin-sized tent in the ‘galaxy’ color to help keep out insects in my parents’ house in the woods. It was very easy to set up, and fantastic to sleep in! I love the windows on either side, and how there are zippers on both sides too.” —Ashli G.

Get the original bed tent from Privacy Pop starting at $99+ (available in sizes Toddler-Queen and in six styles) or get the Eclipse bed tent from Amazon for $114.99+ (available in sizes Toddler-Queen and in four styles, the Eclipse version is easier to set up and take down).

A buttery-soft knit weighted blanket that’s definitely one of those products one looks at and decides “I need it.” The weight of this blanket comes from its extra chunky and thick knit, and many find the weight to be super soothing and calming.

This blanket is at the veryyy top of my wishlist this year 👀.

Promising review: “This blanket is great. The material is soft and comfortable. The weight is perfect. What I love the most is that there are no beads used for the weight. I had a previous weighted blanket that the beads came loose after just a few weeks making the blanket useless. This blanket makes you feel like you are wrapped in a soft hug. I sleep so much better and do not wake up as often. I highly recommend this blanket.” —Jennifer M.
