1. A set of fairy lights so that every time the sun sets, your home looks like a twinkling fairy cavern full of coziness, relaxation, and spicy sweet chili Doritos.

A long string of fairy lights draped over a window curtain


It comes with eight different light modes, including a *twinklemode, with a controller attached to the lights so you can easily switch between them.

Promising review: “OK, so it’s quarantine time. Life is a bit grim. You want a little bit more light in your sphere, so you see these, and you think, maybe. Well, I’m here to turn your ‘maybe’ into a ‘yes.’ Not only do these lights add a bit more illumination to a bedroom that’s quite dark, but they’re just so magical and fairy-like. They infuse a little bit of joy into my world that I really appreciate. I have beams going across my ceiling, so I ended up stringing them across the whole room. I also appreciate that the remote (which is another warning part of the actual strand of lights) has various settings depending on your mood. I usually opt for the stable one, but these offer several modes. ENJOY!” —Tess

Get them from Amazon for $14.43+ (also available in three colors and a multicolor option).

2. Or some simple twinkle lights that’ll make literally any corner of your home look so ✨ magical ✨ .

Each fairy light is 16.4 feet long.

Promising review:  “OK, so let me just say that these little lights are amazing! I bought them solely based on reviews and hoped for the best. Well, I’m just blown away by how neat these things work! Batteries are not included, so I had to do a store run to fix that. Each string takes three AA batteries and each remote takes a flat watch battery (included!), but it’s well worth it! These little guys really put on a show! I love that I have eight different choices for light shows. I also love that there’s a timer if I want to use it. I finally have solved the problem of how to light the wreath on my front door without having an ugly cord or using other light sets that eat batteries in a day or so. Trust me, you can NOT go wrong with these things! I’ve seen similar stings in stores…but without a remote, without the eight light sequence choices, and for a much higher price for just one string! So happy with these. I bought two sets of two, but I may be ordering more. They’re that neat!” —Deborah

Get it from Amazon for $8.95+ (available in four colors).

3. A hammered metal gold lunar garland to provide your room with a bit more ambiance since you’ve had blank walls since you moved in four years ago. It’s time to warm up the place so it *reallyfeels like a cozy home.

Promising review:  “I’m an incoming freshman this fall and I bought this to add some personality to my dorm. It has beyond exceeded my expectations! I placed it directly on top of my dorm bed as shown in the display photos and am so pleased with how it looks. It fits perfectly with the grey/white color scheme I was going for and have received numerous compliments from both my friends and RAs when they’ve visited. I cannot stress enough how much of an ‘aesthetic feel’ it adds to my dorm.” —jhsgf

Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

4. A cheeky candle that not only makes your room smell lovely (and calming thanks to the lavender!), but the label is basically the epitome of your life.

Malicious Women Co. is a woman-owned small business serving all the sassiness through their ethically made candles, apparel, jewelry and more!

Promising review: “I got this for a gift for a friend, and she loved it! The smell is wonderful and the packaging is great.” —Rebecca

Get it from Amazon for $25

5. A rose gold rechargeable electric lighter so you can easily light your new candle without having to deal with wasteful matches that create too much smoke.

This one is not only *sopretty, but it’s completely flameless. Also, it has a long stem so you can feel safe lighting even the last bit of candle wax remaining in the jar.

BuzzFeed editor Emma Lord has a full review of the Leejie electric lighter for more deets!

Promising review: “Works like a charm. I knew immediately that I needed it. I love candles and this is so much better than a match or lighter. It’s kept a charge for months. I use it several times a month.” —dwhite3012

Get it from Amazon for $9.99+ (available in five colors).

6. A fluffy round rug because nothing makes you want to stay home like a super inviting shaggy rug that’s basically ~begging~ for you to sink your toes into it. Do it. Sink the toes.

Promising review: “Looks really cute, it’s really soft and easy to clean. I vacuumed the rug a few times and it still looks like brand new!” —Miriam and Natan Beuca

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (available in three sizes and 16 colors). 

7. A bathtub tray to immediately make you feel like you’re about to take a bubble bath in a 5-star spa. You can bring your favorite book, your laptop to watch a flick, or just take a little snooze.

Psst! The sides extend! This means it can definitely fit your bathtub!

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

Get it from Amazon for $37.97+ (available in seven colors).

8. And a supportive bath pillow for anyone who would rather take a relaxing hot bath on a Friday night than go outside and *shudderssocialize. You have to admit your bathroom would look so much more inviting and cozy with this in it.

the white bath pillow


This waterproof pillow has seven suction cups so you don’t have to worry about it falling off after you found the perfect spot to put it. 

Promising review: “My husband bought this for me because I LOVE taking baths; it’s a nice way to relax and unwind after a long day, but I’ve recently had some health problems which has caused me to lose a lot of weight and taking baths has become excruciating. Due to the lack of extra cushion back there now, lying back on the porcelain tub was extremely painful on my spine/bones, and I had resigned to the fact that I wouldn’t be taking baths anymore. But, GOOD NEWS, this pillow is a dream come true. I wish I had always had this pillow. It’s soooo comfortable! I could almost nap in the tub (but don’t!).” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $16.99+ (available in three sizes and seven colors).

9. A toilet night-light because walking to the bathroom in the middle of the night can be super scary. These will make it feel like your bathroom is safe and comfortable!

This LED toilet light has 16 dimmable colors that can work on a rotation or as a solid color.

Promising review: “This seemingly silly little gadget has turned out to be great! The light level (brightness) can be dimmed down if desired, and the color can be set to whatever you want, but the bottom line is that you don’t need to turn on a bright overhead light (which wakes me up and makes me angry, not a good combination) when you need to go into the bathroom at night. Cleaning it is a breeze, too; what seems like it’s going to be a problem…isn’t. I can’t recommend this toilet night-light highly enough, and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Could be on the gift list this December.” —Wandergurrlee

Get it from Amazon for $9.99.

10. An essential oil diffuser to create a soothing environment for all the Netflix bingeing you’re about to do. It *alsofunctions as a humidifier.

Reviewer photo grid of the diffuser in different colors

A gif of a reviewer's essential oil diffuser changing color

It has two misting modes, continuous and intermittent, which will mist and pause for 30 seconds. It also has eight colors you can change it to to match your current mood or ambience. The best part? It will automatically shut off when it’s out of water so you can sleep soundly knowing it won’t break or cause any safety issues.

Don’t forget to buy some essential oils so you can make your home smell nice!

Promising review:  “This diffuser is amazing. Easy to control color/water output, small and compact, easy to clean, and outright beautiful. It’s great for my apartment; I can finally cover up the totally-not-pot smell that the previous tenant so graciously left me. It’s also great for setting up a romantic environment when the significant other comes over. Just a heads-up — if you have a dog, try not to diffuse tea tree oil, or do it in a place where the dog doesn’t go. It’s bad for their nervous system. I think it’s the same with cats as well, but I’m not sure.” —Amazon customer

Get it from Amazon for $14.99+ (available in five colors).

11. A mug warmer that’ll keep your coffee warm for literally the entire day, but also works great at keeping those late-night hot chocolates toasty hot. Who said it needs to be winter to make a hot choccy? Not me.

This bad boy will heat up your drink up to 131 degrees F! Also, you don’t have to worry about accidental spills, because it’s covered with thermal conductive glass.

Promising review: “This little thing is quality in its build, appealing to keep in sight all day, and most importantly it keeps your coffee LITERALLY as hot as when you made it. When the coffee gets low, it’s often /hotter/ than when I made it. Before this product, I had no idea what a “gravity switch” was. It just means that it activates when you set your mug on it and turns off when you remove the weight. Super convenient and works like a charm. I absolutely love this thing, and with a mug with a lid I’ve been able to go to meetings with hot coffee, return to my desk an hour later with warm coffee, and have hot coffee again in five minutes.” —Nick Monreal

Get it from Amazon for $28.99+ (available in four colors).

12. Or a glass cup if you prefer to have iced coffee (or tea or matcha!) as your choice of caffeine.

Moontide Creations Co / Etsy

Moontide Creations Co is a queer-owned small business based out of Holyoke, Massachusetts that specializes in glass cups with unique designs.

Promising review: “I bought this glass as a gift for my sister, and she absolutely LOVES it! She actually hides it from her roommates because she doesn’t want anyone else to use it haha There was a slight issue with the shipping in the beginning, but Libby was so responsive and helpful – she really put my mind at ease, and was easily reachable up through delivery confirmation. Would absolutely buy from this shop again!” —Jessica Armbruster

Get it from Moontide Creations Co on Etsy for $23.39+ (originally $25.99+; available in two sizes and with a lid and straw). 

13. A cotton knit duvet cover you’ll find incredibly difficult to not want to spend your entire day in because of how beautiful and cozy it looks. Your bedroom would be the first image when you search “bedroom goals” on Pinterest.

And if you’re looking for a great duvet to fill this cover, here’s a hypoallergenic option that reviewers love! 

Promising review: I have been looking for a terracotta jersey knit duvet cover forever and took a chance with this one. The color is great, a dark terracotta/rust color. It’s soft, but if I had to be nit-picky it isn’t as soft as other jersey-knit fabrics I have felt. Shipping was surprisingly fast, and the size was perfect for my queen bed. Overall I am happy with my purchase.” —Amazon Customer

Get it from Amazon for $63.09+ (available in three sizes and 18 colors).

14. A rainfall showerhead because after a long day of work, don’t you deserve to feel like you stepped into a luxurious spa when you open your bathroom door? The answer is yes. Yes you do.

Promising review: “I was able to install this item rather easily, my old head was harder to get off than this head was to install. The wrench that is provided is adequate along with the use of your hands; no other wrench is needed. I would just make sure you do not tighten very much. No pipe tape was needed with my installation; there was none included with my purchase. I love the adjustable arm, the flow of the water, and how relaxing it feels after a rough day to stand underneath and enjoy the water flow over your body.” —Ozatlarge

Get it from Amazon for $30.99+ (available in three sizes and three colors).

15. A mushroom chair you’ll quickly designate as your go-to spot for reading books or taking midday naps.

Reviewer photo of the mushroom chair with a white cushion and a black wicker base

Promising review:  “Absolutely love this chair! The cushion is very comfortable — great for sinking in to read, watch TV, play on the Wii, or even nap if you are shorter like me. My nieces and nephew climbed all over it and it didn’t break, very sturdy. It even spins completely which was a happy surprise. The blue color is vibrant and goes so nicely with the gray base. Worth the money!” —Samantha

Get it from Amazon for $183.99+ (available in 18 colors).

16. A hand-knit pet bed that your fur baby will actually want to sleep in — and it’ll look so cozy in your home. My cats are *sounbelievably picky with beds, but they’re absolutely obsessed with this one!

Stephanie Hope / BuzzFeed

As you can see, my cat, Norman, has claimed the bed as his own. It’s super soft and moldable, which is clearly why he likes it because it will cave in around him. He will sleep in it for literal hours in every position imaginable. The other two cats get some time in it as well, and they all show signs of genuinely loving it. They *alsomake biscuits in it and it holds up remarkably well. I can’t say enough good things about this bed. It’s a HIT!

Berkshire Yarn Works is a Black woman-owned small business based in the Berkshire Mountains of Massachusetts that sells cozy handmade items for you and your home. 

Promising review: “The quality is great, color is beautiful, and my cat is already loving her new bed! Great customer service too, thank you for sending me details so I could pick the perfect cat bed!” —Morgan

Get it from Berkshire Yarn Works on Etsy for $75 (available in five colors). 

17. A large storage basket you can use to store extra pillows, blankets, toys, or just leave it empty so your cat can inevitably use it to nap in. Some reviewers have even used it as a planter!

Promising review:  “Love this basket. Its very sturdy and resumed its shape very shortly after opening. It fits perfectly in my living room and seems to hold a lot. I have two baby blankets and two adult throws in there.” —Toya

Get it from Amazon for $25.99+ (available in two sizes and three colors).

18. A bed canopy to make your bed feel like your own ethereal sanctuary to read your favorite book or take the world’s best nap. Bonus points if you add string lights for extra coziness.

This polyester mesh canopy is large enough for queen- and king-size mattresses. Installation is easy if you have a four-poster bed, however, it comes with four hanging hooks and anchors to install from the ceiling too.

Promising review: “This was super easy to install, and much bigger than I expected, but that’s not a bag thing. It makes my bed feel so nice and cozy! I used some large wired ribbon to keep the ends tied together. My cats have even batted at it a few times and haven’t ripped it so it’s pretty durable!” —Haley

Get it from Amazon for $23.99+ (also available in black).

19. A daybed for those times when all you want to do is take a little cozy midday nap, but don’t want to commit to your regular bed, and the couch just isn’t hitting right.

Urban Outfitters

Promising review: “They are perfect for inside and outside. Beautiful, simple and very sturdy. I love the one I have so much! Now that i have a house and have the space..I would love to purchase another.” —R Egelhoff

Get it from Urban Outfitters for $499

20. A mermaid blanket so you can live your childhood mermaid dreams you’ve had since that one pool party when everyone refused to play “Mermaids” with you so you were left to play by yourself. This isn’t a personal anecdote. *sobsJust…go be cozy in your mermaid tail.

It also comes with a mermaid-shaped necklace and a pretty storage bag.

Promising review: “I love this blanket! It’s very soft and very fun, especially after a long day at work. I also loved that it came with a mermaid necklace and a pretty bag.” —Jill Aragon

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

21. An ivy garland because adding greenery to your space can instantly make it feel warm and welcoming, but who wants to actually do the work of keeping them alive? Faux is the way to go!

Promising review: “I ordered these for my dorm. They came in single strings for me to hang. I paired them with some curtain lights. They were easy to hang, lightweight, and look great! The smell is a little much once you first open the bag; however I do not smell anything now that they’re up.” —Meghan Roum

Get a 12-pack from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in two sizes).

22. A set of velvet pillow covers so you can add warmth to your living room *andprovide a comfy place to rest your head while you endlessly scroll TikTok for new products to buy 👀 .

JSYK, these are only pillow covers. You’ll need to buy inserts if you don’t already have them. Get a set of two from Amazon for $15.99.

Promising review: “Love, love, love these soft velvet pillows! The velvet is very smooth and even and the velvet doesn’t look sparse or cheap at all. They feel expensive and look like high quality pillows. I also love the soft colors with contrasting trim — it’s very whimsical and cute. And the cats’ hair doesn’t clinging to the pillows so that’s an added bonus. Overall very happy with my purchase!” —NG2

Get them from Amazon for $32.50 (available in two color combinations).

23. Flameless candles with moving wicks that flicker SO realistically, you can get all the cozy vibes without worrying about leaving a candle burning.

You can even control these ones with a remote!

Promising review: “I bought these as a gift for my grandmother who wanted to look and feel of candles without having to worry about the fire aspect. These were right on the money! She loved them. Easy to use, the brightness was great, and they are definitely safe. Comes with a remote control for easy lighting and even a self timer to shut off so they don’t wear out the battery.” —Taija

Get the set of five from Amazon for $21.99.

24. A macrame swing to add some extra seating to your home, but like, in the coziest way possible. I can already picture all three of my cats fighting for this space.

Promising review: “Bought this for my 6-year-old’s room makeover. She loves it and curls up in it most days. She piles in the pillows and blankets to make the ropes cozy. I had my dad, who built houses for a living, install it for me to make sure it was secure but I think as long as you use a stud finder and have a good screw driver, anyone can do this.” —KrisSquared

Get it from Amazon for $58.49.

25. Velvet curtains to keep your room warm in the winter and cool in the summer. They’ll make your space feel like the homiest cave to sleep in thanks to the blackout feature!

The velvet curtains in a mustard yellow color


Promising review: “Beautiful! They look and feel fantastic! They are very heavy, and I’m using tension rods to hold them so I hope they don’t fall! The length and look is perfect for our new home! The grey is a beautiful medium-light silver. In the picture I hung them right out of the packaging and there are not too many wrinkles. I think the rest might fall out by themselves. What a great price for such good quality!” —Amazon Customer

Get a pair of panels from Amazon for $39.18+ (available in six lengths and 17 colors).

26. A delightfully fuzzy loungewear set you’ll want to take an ~excessive~ number of photos in just to post #MovieNight on your Instagram feed.

Promising review: “No joke, these are pretty much exactly the same as my Skims lounge set for half the price. The pants graze the tops of my feet even when I wear them high-waisted at my belly button, so I think they’re plenty long. The robe is like wearing a blanket, but still looks put together. Anyway, I’m back here to buy a second color because I loved them so much!” —Jenna

Get the three-piece set from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in sizes S–XL and in 20 colors).

Psst: This item is included in Prime Wardrobe, so you can give it a trial run if you’re a member!

27. A leaning wall ladder so you have the perfect place to display your coziest blankets *andlet you easily grab a blanket for an impromptu movie night with your partner.

Reviewer photo of the black ladder with two blankets on it

Promising review: “I’ve been searching for the perfect ladder to store my blankets at thrift stores for years! Now that we are redoing our house, I figured I’d bite the bullet and buy one new! I was shocked to find this one at such a good price! I love the wood accent at the top! It can pass as modern, industrial, or farmhouse! I think I may get one for a towel rack in my bathroom now it’s that cute! My husband was even impressed with it, which says a lot! He thought it was attached to the wall, that’s how sturdy it is!” —HeatherA

Get this one from Amazon for $66 (available in white).

28. A spa foot tub because if there’s anything that makes being at home *thatmuch more amazing, it’s a little spa day for your tired feet. Tired feet from running away from all those plans you haphazardly made.

Reviewer photo of their feet soaking in the foot spa tub

This baddie has water jets and raised nodes to massage your tired feet. It even comes with a removable pumice stone! Note: It does *notcome with a heating function, so you’ll have to add warm or hot water to it.

Promising review:  “The spa is a good one for its price. However, the water doesn’t stay hot so make sure to use hot water in the beginning. The bubbles are relaxing and very calming. Nice addition to a family spa day. Definitely going to be doing this more because Lord, I did not know how much I needed this. The cleaning process is very easy. Pour out the water and wipe it down. I wouldn’t advise using anything like epsom salt or oils in the spa because it is harder to clean. Overall great product for a simple feet-soaking session and weekly self-care routine.” —O

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

29. A set of photo clip string lights so you can put up photos of all of your favorite memories while providing the coziest of vibes your room could muster.

Get them from Amazon for $9.97+ (available in four sizes). 

30. A subscription to Disney+ to bring back all those memories of you cuddling on the couch watching Lady and the Tramp or Home Alone on a Friday night. Ahh, I can hear it now. 🎵 When you wiiish upon a staaar 🎵

This version of the switch allows you to disconnect the controllers from the main console and play with them separately *orconnect them to a controller. This means you can play your Switch using your TV!

Also, if you hate the red and blue colors (like I do), I bought these amazing skins from Sticky Bunny!

Promising review: “Finally I could get a flawless Switch console in my hands, this one is perfect, battery life, even the joysticks feels more premium now. I super ultra buster mega recommend this one, best Switch version ever.” —Joao Mota

Get it from Amazon for $299+ (available in four colors and with memory cards).

32. An eye massager that comes with heat, vibrations, and air pressure to create the *perfecteye massage you didn’t even know you needed. This is peak introvert behavior and I’m living for it.

OK, so I tried this, and it’s my new favorite gadget. I honestly didn’t think it was going to work or be effective, but I was obviously completely unaware of the amount of strain I had in my eyes from staring at screens all day. The mask has different modes/combinations you can choose from. For example, you can use the vibration, heat, and music, or just the heat, vibration, and massager, or all of the options at once! The heat feels so nice against my lids and the massager not only gets around your eyes and bridge of your nose, but all the way to your temples. It lasts for about 15 minutes *andyou can even connect your phone via Bluetooth and play your own music. I have been using this every night after dinner to relax my eyes and it’s even reduced my tension headaches!

Promising review: “I bought this for my husband who has daily migraines from a head injury. This is the first item that has brought him any relief. He wears it and he drifts off to sleep. While it doesn’t cure the migraines it does help him sleep and that alone is a miracle. He has said his pain levels go from a 10 to a 6 or 7 after wearing it. I am very grateful for this product.” —Sharon Dobben

Get it from Amazon for $75.99 (available in two colors).

33. A wireless library light to highlight your bookshelf, beautiful wall art, or just to have some extra lighting in a dark hallway. The possibilities are ~endless~ and nothing says cozy quite like statement lighting does.

This uses three AAA batteries and includes a remote that lets you set the light to different brightnesses and schedule a timer for 15, 30, 60, or 120 minutes.

Promising review: “For the price you can’t beat it. Super easy to install and lightweight. The gold had a slight orange tint to it, so be mindful of that. I actually just taped over the light and spray-painted ours with gold spray paint I had left over, and then they were absolutely perfect.” —Paris Seder

Get it from Amazon for $29.99+ (available in three colors).

34. A eucalyptus lavender pouch that’ll effortlessly turn your rigid bathroom into a luxurious, cozy spa experience with just one whiff while you lather your hair with shampoo.

Get a set of three from Eucalyptus Blooms on Etsy for $10.49+ (originally $14.99+; available as a five pack).

35. Edison bulb string lights to give your space a “cozy café” vibe without having to, like, actually open a café. I have these hanging in my living room, and they’re my favorite way to create a warm and inviting space.

Reviewer photo of the lights strung up in their backyard patio

Promising review: “Beautiful lights! It’s nice that the lights start right at the beginning of the string so there isn’t a bunch of dead space between the plug and when the lights start, so you really are getting a full 25 feet of lighted string. The downside to this is that if your plug is low to the ground then your lights also start at the plug, but I was able to just not put in the bulbs for the distance I didn’t want lit, and it works just fine. I had no issues with any of the bulbs not working but I did follow the instructions and carefully and gently removed all the bulbs before hanging the string, and only then did I screw the bulbs back in. Since then, they have been very exposed to the elements for a couple of months now with no obvious tarnishing or dimming or problems with lighting up.” —Jess221B

Get it from Amazon for $14.40+ (available in four sizes and six styles).

36. A comfy 5-1/2-foot bean bag floor pillow for times when laying on the couch is just not cozy enough for you.

Promising review: “I enjoy laying on the floor watching TV. This is just what I needed. So comfortable and it molds to my back for support. The instructions were to wait 72 hours for the pillow to fully expand. It was interesting to watch it grow. If you are a floor person like me you will not be sorry you purchased this.” —Nancy C

Get it from Amazon for $149.99+ (available in 14 colors).

37. A subscription to Book of the Month, a service where you can pick one (you can also add two extra books each month!) book every month from their curated list. It’s like having your own little book club without having to leave your house, which is, like, the goal.

Promising review: “I have been using bath bombs for years. I’ve used cheap brands, drugstore brands, luxury brands (Lush, YL) and more. This box gives all bath bombs I’ve tried a run for the money! The packaging was super cute and totally giftable. I was really impressed at the quality of the bath bomb itself, too (I used Heal tonight) and I love that this uses natural essential oils. During this COVID-19 outbreak, I have had a lot of stress and anxiety and have enjoyed a bath nearly every night for the past week. This bomb gave me the most serene experience and they are HUGE! At least double the size of ones I’ve used before. Comparable to the size of Lush bombs. I will definitely purchase this box again when I run out and honestly it’s a great price at a little more than $2 a piece. You really can’t beat it!” —Heather H
