One reviewer said, "Moo-ve over sweater competition!" and I felt it was an obligation to share that with the world.
Promising review: "Basically perfect. The sweater's design is beautiful, and the materials are very soft and thick, definitely has some weight to it folded up, and it makes it feel very nice and high quality. It can get fuzzy but fortunately doesn’t fall off and get everywhere, so it looks great. Keeps you pretty warm and [very] comfortable, and it’s a bit oversized which is great!" —Erik
Price: $32.99+ (available in men's sizes S–XL and in 28 colors/designs)

Price: $29.99 (for a set of four)
Promising review: "All I can say is woooow! This mirror is not only affordable, but the quality is amazing. It’s heavy and not cheap looking. The gold color is not so tacky, and it’s done just right. My main concern was receiving a broken mirror but the packaging was great and arrived in one piece. Don’t hesitate buying this gem, you need it!" —Celeste C
Price: $94.71+ (available in four sizes and five colors)
BuzzFeed writer Mallory Mower loves these cups!: "I just bought these! I love ceramic decor. When I find some that are also functional? It will likely end up straight in my shopping cart! These are a conversation piece on their own. When people realize I can drink out of them? They go throw them in their OWN shopping carts!"
Promising review: "Very nice and different cups! Each one is different with the markings which make them very unique. They fit in the base perfectly!" —G. M. Kraus
Price: $11.49 (available in five colors and also in sets of two)
Promising review: "I wanted lights for my new bedroom, but I didn’t want the traditional LED strip lights that are super popular. These are so sleek and customizable, I had to take the plunge!... The package came with 25 adhesive clips...Overall, I really love this product and I hope it lasts a long time!" —Gabriel
Price: $55.99+ (available in 6.56- and 16.4 ft)
JW Pei is an Asian-, family-owned brand with minimalist purses that are made with sustainable vegan materials.
Promising review: "I absolutely love these sandals! The block heel gives the perfect amount of height without being too high, and the mule style makes them easy to slip on and off. The white color is crisp and clean, and they look great with so many different outfits. Plus, they're really comfortable — I can wear them all day without any pain or discomfort. Overall, I highly recommend these sandals to anyone looking for a stylish and comfortable pair of shoes! 🤍" —Mo
Price: $89 (available in women's sizes 5–10 and 13 colors)
Here's why BuzzFeed editor Elizabeth Lilly loves these:
"I, an adult woman, cannot remember the last time I bought a box of tissues for my home. (Though I have several purse packs?!) It may have been when I most recently had a sinus infection, which I guess was two-plus years ago. But now that I’m playing house as a grown-ass person in an apartment to myself, I’m trying to be *responsible*. So obviously buying this whimsical tissue box cover we’ve featured in a million BuzzFeed shopping posts is peak adulting.
Perhaps the reason I’ve been so bad at keeping around a box of tissues is because tissues just look...kind of ugly out in the open. But not with this lil’ cover! Now it’s a ~design element~ that I’ll hopefully remember to keep full. For now, it’s filled with a square box of tissues I unearthed from my old apartment’s closet while packing; it's presently neatly housed inside the tissue box cover, providing the 'smoke' for the tiny chimney. The only downside to committing to this box is that I'll have to buy square-shaped tissue boxes only now. But I can live with that. And with my not-snotty nose."
This includes all the hardware you'll need to hang it, the macrame hanger, and a cushion.
Promising review: "This is worth every penny! My kitten loves sleeping and playing in it! The bed is really good quality and it's the perfect fit!" —Rachel Eggers
Pammytail is a woman-owned, Connecticut-based small business with a specialty in handmade charm bracelets, necklaces, and other jewelry.
Promising review: "These are really nice earrings. The artwork is crisp and detailed, very cool. It arrived in a pretty pink bubble wrap bag and within the pink bag was a pink sheer gift bag with a pretty box inside. So it is gift ready. Love these." —Leanne S
Psst, these are pillow covers. You can grab a set of pillow inserts for $16.99.
Promising review: "These are gorgeous, soft, and well made. I chose the orange and teal combination. Perfect! No loose strings at all, which is rare in itself when you order textiles. I want to get some more. Just luscious!... They are a different color on the other side which add more interesting contrast. I definitely recommend these. They can work in a casual or more formal setting. The colors are unique as well. I suggest getting inserts the same size if you want a soft pillow, and size up the insert if you want a firmer, puffier look." —A. Jerry
Price: $32.50 for a set of four standard 18x18 covers (also available in five other sizes and nine other color combos)

Promising reviews: "This little keyboard is awesome! Just like typing on a retro typewriter. I love the feel of the keys. Super easy to pair up with my phone and iPad. Highly recommend this!" —Michele Sanises
"Definitely worth the purchase. My favorite quality is that it holds my phone up too!! The keys stick up higher than a normal keyboard and it took some getting used to, but I love it. I’ve gotten so many compliments on it and it makes that satisfying clicky sound when you use it. it’s super easy to connect and it is compatible with a Mac, which can be a pain if you know anything about Macs lol. buy it!" —Abby Victoria
Price: $51.99 (available in three sizes and five colors)
Promising reviews: "I’ve always been a big reader and when I saw this on #bookstagram I knew I had to have it. It’s so pretty and easy to use. I’m going to be ordering at LEAST one more to have in my office. It’s a great addition to anyone’s shelves." —Alyssa
"Beautiful and unique design. Doesn’t leak water. I am very happy with my purchase." —Fernando Perepechkin
Price: $14.99 (available in five colors)
Promising review: "I am IN LOVE. I bought this to use as a backsplash in my rented studio apartment kitchen, which has potential to be pretty but really needs some help. I ordered two rolls thinking that if I liked it in my kitchen, I’d order more to use on the wall behind my bar cart. I loved it so much when it came in that I decided to go ahead and put it up on the big wall and deal with the kitchen later. The pattern is so easy to line up and it looks so good! My tiny, dark apartment instantly looked bigger and brighter. Even up close I can’t tell where the seams are. It was super easy to put up by myself, though I would recommend having another person to help if possible because it would have taken a lot less time if I’d had someone to hold it steady while I lined up the edges. If I could give 6 stars I would. It’s expensive but worth every penny!" —Lizzy
Price: $28.99+ (available in three colors)
Promising review: "Looks like the picture! This is a very cute blouse and I’m happy with my purchase. I usually wear a medium however ordered a large because of the crop fit and dressy style. This blouse is very stretchy but supportive....I definitely would recommend this product!" —Dkwj

Promising review: "Want to feel classy AND have water at your bedside at all times: this is it. It’s gorgeous and functional." —Thuneman
Batteries are included!
Promising review: "Absolutely beautiful novelty item! ...The shell is nicely formed, and a good quality. It is substantial, a good weight, not flimsy... It's covered with a heavy pearlescent finish that makes light and color flow across it. It's very pretty! The pearl light is a solid cream white ceramic and looks wonderful in the shell, with or without the light on...The batteries are replaceable and are easy to replace. I am very happy with the one I got, and will be buying another." —Michele Lyons
Price: $23.88+ (available in pink and white).
These cases fit AirPods 1 & 2.

Promising review: "The color is perfect and my first slices of toast were too. It’s easy to adjust. I used the included guide with pictures to adjust the knob based on how dark I like my toast. It was exactly how I like it. My old toaster was basically giving me warm bread. Not this little baby. I’m so happy I found it, and that I didn’t wait to buy it." —Shytel
Price: $38.99+ (available in seven colors)

DryZzz is a woman-owned small biz founded by two sisters in Miami, Florida. A portion of their proceeds goes to Sofia’s Hope Inc. to fund pediatric cancer research.
Promising review: "The pillowcase is hands down, the best I have ever used! I always take night showers and go to bed with wet hair. I've used a towel over my old pillowcases for years and I always wake up with a damp pillow and the towel on the bed. With this pillowcase, I don't have that problem! The microfiber side absorbs the moisture from my hair and the other side is a nice soft satin for those nights I don't go to bed with wet hair. I will never go back to a normal pillowcase again! I never write product reviews, but I just had to with this product. It was that good! Basically, BUY THIS PILLOWCASE!!!!" —Kristen Chorney
Price: $35.95+ (available in four satin colors, four cotton colors, and a white double-sided microfiber towel case)
Promising review: "I think this is a beautiful, well made table that is sturdy and has a lot of style. I’m very happy with my purchase.

I was looking for an interestingly piece and this was it." —Ashley Sinclair
Price: $174.51+ (available in three colors)
P.S. the matching candle holders are just as stellar! 😍
Promising reviews: "I have been looking for a set like this for so long!!! I love them so much, they are so perfect and so good quality. Crate and Barrel has a similar set but the spoons and cups are sold in two different sets and are almost double the price. I’m so happy I bought these!" —Krupa
"These are easy to store, easy to clean, and look nice. Very happy!" —Amengray
Promising review: "Adorable vintage designs! Sturdy pieces... Definitely more pricey than the cheap version you could get for $10 at any big store, but honestly, it’s worth it to me. It lasts so much longer and easier to store. Having it in our front room on the bookshelf makes it easily accessible and blends in with our other books. You can see in my photo [the bookshelf on the right] we also have Boggle and Chutes and Ladders. Big fan of these." —Spooky Hobbit
Price: for $39.99+ Scrabble, Candy Land, and 10 others
Promising reviews: "This speaker really does add more fun & joy into my life. I previously owned an Anker brand speaker that stopped working. The Muzen button isn’t as loud as the Anker speaker but still holds a clear sound. I absolutely love the design and color!" —Onika Donnay Incorporated
"Got this speaker as a gift for my super trendy & fashionable sister, quite honestly wasn't expecting it to be more than a cute fashion accessory. To say I was shocked at the quality of sound is an understatement. It's louder than my regular speaker - and it's less than a fifth of the size. Not to mention, it's soooo pretty and everyone always comments about how tiny it is. Surprisingly heavy and durable metal, not cheap plastic, which was a relief. My sister is obsessed with it and it's already her new favorite (and frequently Instagrammed) accessory. She has found a way to wear it with her outfits and brings it with her everywhere...10/10 would recommend as a gift for any fashionista/music lover or even if you just want to treat yourself." —Nina
Price: $75+ (available in five colors)
Promising reviews: "I got this dress for my engagement photo shoot and I love it! My fiancé loved it, our photographer loved it, and I’ve gotten countless compliments about it when I posted some of our pictures on social media. It’s surprisingly comfortable for a dress with a corset, that I couldn’t wear a bra with (not the norm for me)... This dress made me feel like a princess! It was a very windy day, but it just made the dress flow and billow in all the right ways. I’m seriously obsessed with it!" —Kate R
"This dress is made of dreams. The quality of the dress is incredible. I even gave them my measurements and had it custom-made. It fits like a glove! The shipping speed is accurate as well! I felt like a fairy princess for my birthday! For all you cottagecore [fans] this is a must! ❤️" —Alex
Price: $66.99+ (available in women's sizes 2–26 and in 28 colors)
Promising review: "I have been looking for a unique matchstick holder for my guest rooms and coffee table and this was just what I was looking for!

Promising review: "Took this purse to casino and everyone fell in love with it!!!!! Discreet!!! Absolutely no mess when refilling glass and easy to pour entire bottle of wine into. It makes an awesome birthday gift for girlfriends!!!" —kfair
Promising review: "The quality of these brushes is great. No shedding and they are soft and firm where they need to be. They’re pleasant to hold and overall just beautiful brushes. You can’t beat this quality for the price! I highly recommend to anyone who likes make up. Would make a great gift!!" —Erika
Price: $7.99+ for a set of 10 (available in six colors)
🎶 It's me, hi. I'm the impulsive buyer, it's me. 🎶 After seeing this gooorgeous candle warmer online time and time again (and trying to ignore the urge to buy what I absolutely didn't need)...I finally did it, and WOW am I glad I did. This lamp looks even better in person, it's warms all of my candles evenly, and after moving it to my desk, I figured out it can be used as the cutest mug warmer, too! It comes with two compatible 50-watt warming bulbs that melt candles from top to bottom. The dimming feature is also really convenient for both the brightness of the light and for how fast or slow you want your candle to melt! This would definitely be a 12/10 gift.
Price: $45.99 (available in two colors)
Promising review: "This clock is worth the money! Buy it. Bright display, stylish, good material. It was easy for me to set up. It really took no time because the instructions were very simple! It keeps time, date, and even temperature accurately! Buy this!" —Robin
Price: $24.99 (available in four colors)
Promising review: "Beautiful and very high-end. I am shocked by the quality of this mirror for under $200. The velvet is gorgeous in person and it is incredibly sturdy... It is really heavy so if you want to hang it make sure you have a stud. Its weight allows it to stay tilted on the ground too without moving around... I was really hesitant but it looks like something from West Elm." —Dan Schwalbe
Price: $249.99 (available in three styles and four colors)
Promising review: " I like it so much I am buying a second one. I mostly use it to cook a double fried egg from two large eggs...I use it much more than I expected. I frequently make three double fried eggs in a row without needing to clean it in between. The nonstick is that good. It is very lightweight and easy to manage. Ordering my second now!" —A parent
Price: $16.10+ (available in two colors)
Promising review: "They are perfect representations of records and look very cool while protecting the furniture... It has a non-slip bottom so they don't slip and slide. Even the packaging is worth saving. He loves them and I love not having rings on my table.." —ajmets
Price: $6.99 for a set of six
Promising review: "I am in love with this chandelier! It makes me happy every time I walk into my dining room! It's so beautiful! I went with the 40-watt bulbs and they are very bright! I connected it to a dimmer which is perfect because sometimes I like it really bright and sometimes I like it a little dimmer. It was a little tedious to put together but I just sat in front of the tv and committed to it and it was fine. I actually did half the spikes one night and the other half the day after. I had a handyman install it and it took him about ten minutes." —S Leto
Price: $128+ (available in seven colors and two styles)
