Best Sheet Set

1. Wayfair Basics Microfiber Sheet Set


This best-selling sheet set has more than 62,000 reviews and a 4.6-star rating, making it a no-brainer buy, in our opinion. It comes with a fitted sheet and a top sheet, as well as four matching pillowcases (except for the Twin and Twin XL sizes, which come with two pillowcases each), all with a wonderfully soft, cool feeling that's a dream to sleep on. In addition to the usual sizes, it also comes in a California King set for truly spacious bedrooms and a Twin XL for college students living it up in the dorms. The material is also Oeko-Tex certified, meaning that both the methods used to make the fabric and the actual sheets themselves are safe for humans, i.e., no harsh chemicals, pesticides or dyes are used at any point.

Best Toaster Oven

2. Cuisinart Air Fryer Toaster Oven


When it comes to beloved kitchen tools, this fan-favorite toaster oven tops the list. It has a built-in air fryer, so you can enjoy crispy foods with less oil—all while taking up less counter space than having two gadgets. In fact, it can do the jobs of multiple appliances with the ability to fry, toast, bake, broil and more.

Best Vacuum

3. Dyson V8 Absolute Vacuum


With a near-perfect rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars and more than 3,700 reviews, *this* is the Dyson vac you’ll want to invest in while it’s 30 percent off. We're impressed by the cordless, lightweight vac's unprecedented suction that can deep clean carpets and hardwood floors. But what we really love is how it can change into a smaller, handheld vacuum when you remove the stick, which means it comes in handy after the kids spill their snacks in the car. Not to mention that it comes with a no-touch emptying bin (a major plus) and a wall-mount charging dock, which recharges your vacuum and guarantees easy storage after each use.

Best Comforter

4. Wayfair Sleep Down-Alternative Comforter

wayfair sleep

No one wants to swap out their heavyweight winter comforter for a breathable summer cover every year (nor do they want to switch them back in six months). This down-alternative comforter offers the perfect middle ground, keeping sleepers nice and cozy in colder months and comfortably cool come summer. There are also loops on each corner to make tying it to a duvet cover much easier. And if that doesn’t convince you, perhaps the 4.7-star rating and more than 4,000 reviews will do the trick.

Best Handheld Vacuum

5. Black + Decker Dustbuster

black and decker

A cordless, handheld vacuum makes getting into all those nooks and crannies all the easier, whether you want to rid your car of crumbs or banish dust bunnies from behind the couch. And the suction is reportedly impressive for such a small appliance. “The suction is worth 5 stars,” writes Belinda from Leesburg, VA. “Better than any other personal-use model I’ve tried.” Reviewers also love how easy it is to clean out the dust-collecting compartment once it fills up.

Best Blender

6. Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender


If there’s one Vitamix blender we’ve been eyeing for a while, it’s the Explorian (and now that it’s 35 percent off, we have no excuse not to splurge). First and foremost, this guy is decked to the nines with variable speed controls and pulse settings that make it easy to fine-tune any texture—from smooth purees to chunky salsas. But the secret weapon of the Explorian is its powerful, two-horsepower motor and stainless-steel blades that can break down everything from frozen fruits and ice cubes to crunchy nuts. The cherry on top? It comes with a five-year warranty that covers parts, performance, labor and shipping (at no added cost).

Best Pressure Cooker

7. Instant Pot Pro Pressure Cooker

Instant Pot

For anyone who would rather spend more time cozying up on the couch than cooking in the kitchen, a pressure cooker is a godsend. This reader-favorite model—which happens to be 12 percent off—doubles as a sous vide machine, yogurt maker, slow cooker, rice cooker, steamer, sauté pan and sterilizer. Plus, it comes with 13 customizable programs for one-touch meal prep.

Best Comforter Set

8. House of Hampton Comforter Set


Need some new bedding? This textured comforter set can bring a touch of elegance to any space with its solid hue (which comes in six colorways) and pin-tucked design. Aside from its chic design, the set is made from 100 percent, hypoallergenic microfiber and includes a comforter and two shams—all at 30 percent off. Oh, and did we mention that it’s machine washable?

Best Air Fryer

9. Dash Compact Air Fryer


This TikTok favorite air fryer makes crispy potatoes and “fried” chicken without the extra grease and is petite enough to live on your counter or easily stowed away in a cabinet, if you prefer. Those looking to feed larger groups might prefer a bigger model, but for couples or those who cook smaller batches, this model is a dream. “Great little machine,” writes Kelly from Stillwater, MN. “Potatoes in it are great and it cooks really fast. You can really only prepare smaller amounts at a time, but it’s perfect for meals for two.”

This 60-inch long pillow is filled with pieces of memory foam, rather than one solid chunk, so you get all the supportive benefits of the material, but with the softer feel of down. Wayfair says it has a medium firmness, and it’s also machine washable for easy care. In fact, one reviewer suggests tossing the pillow in the dryer as soon as you unbox it to help fluff up the memory foam for maximum comfort.

Best Shoe Rack

11. ClosetMaid Stackable Shoe Rack


Time to clean up that shoe pile that’s been cluttering your mudroom with the help of this chic, stackable shoe rack. It has 25 slots, allowing you to stow up to 25 pairs of flats or sandals or 12 pairs of booties or sneakers (one shoe for each slot). It’s also surprisingly lightweight and, as the name suggests, multiple racks can be stacked atop one another if you find you need more storage space.

Best Area Rug

12. Langley Street Washburn Rug


You don’t need to buy all new furniture to refresh your living room—simply throw down a fabulous new rug, like this boho design by Langley Street. It comes in eight different sizes, so there’s bound to be at least one that fits your space, and the slightly muted pattern will look gorgeous with just about any color palette. It’s also machine washable should you run into any unexpected spills.

Best Cookware Set

13. Viking Copper Clad Cookware Set


Replace those old, stained pots and pants with this copper, 13-piece nonstick cookware set just in time for soup and stew season. It comes with two stock pots, two saucepans, two skillets, a sauté pan and a steamer basket, along with five matching lids. Reviews raves that they heat and cook evenly.

Best Mattress in a Box

14. Sealy Memory Foam Mattress in a Box


Ditch the spring mattress you’ve had for the last 20 years. Sealy’s bed-in-a-box features 12 inches of plush-yet-supportive layers that help keep your body aligned as you sleep. There are six sizes to choose from, including a Twin XL if you really want to spoil the college kind in your life this holiday season.

Best Kitchen Storage Set

15. Wayfair Basics Boyland Kitchen Canister Set


Organize your kitchen like a pro with this set of four glass containers that allows you to easily see when you’re running low on anything from flour to cereal to dog treats at a glance. Each of the four canisters is a different size and they hold approximately 0.47 quarts, 0.74 quarts, 1.06 quarts and 1.74 quarts. They are, unfortunately, not dishwasher safe, but the bamboo tops do offer an air-tight seal to ensure whatever you stow in there stays fresh longer.

Best Artificial Pine Tree

16. Steelside Isenhour Artificial Christmas Tree


An artificial Christmas tree may not have the same fresh pine scent as the real deal, but isn’t that what scented candles are for? Plus, no sweeping up needles twice a day through the end of December. This model comes in four different heights (6 feet to 9 feet) and has cords of lights built right onto the branches to ensure you always have an even distribution of light. Reviewers say the tree looks wonderfully real in person, and while it does take some time to properly fluff and position the branches right out of the box, the overall effect is beautiful and well worth the effort. Bonus: You can take an extra 15 percent off with code 'TAKE15' at check out.

Best Leather Sofa

17. Steelside Lidia Leather Sofa


This gorgeous leather sofa has a frame made from real wood and foam cushions to give you a sturdy yet comfy seat. It does require some assembly upon arrival, but reviews say it’s a very easy set-up (you will need a power drill, however). And as Hillary from Easthampton, MA, notes, “It’s a huge plus that the cushions are all removable and can be rotated for even wear.”

With 26 gorgeous colors to choose from, these black-out curtains will keep the rays out on bright sunny days when you want to sleep in. Not to mention, they're great outside of the bedroom, too: "I love how they look in my porch. Curtains are made very well. Beautiful colors," one happy customer writes.

With more than 11,300 5-star reivews, you'll definitely want to snag this mattress at 50 percent off. It's crafted with pocket coils and gel memory foam, so it's perfect for anyone who's looking for a bouncy yet supportive feel. Plus, it features a breathable, hypoallergenic surface with cooling technology to help you stay dry (here's looking at you, sweaty sleepers).

Best Plush Rug

20. Langley Street Lurdes Area Rug


Yet another rug we're loving? This geometric number, which comes in nine stunning colorways. It has a plush shag finish that will feel like a dream underfoot and the polypropylene construction means its suitable for high-traffic areas.

Best Convertible Sofa

21. Mercury Row Perdue Velvet Convertible Sofa


We love this velvet sofa because it's convertible, so it can transform into a twin-size bed for overnight guests. Its mid-century modern design boasts an engineered wood frame, while the channel tufting, square arms and piped edges give it a classic touch. It's also wrapped in soft-to-the-touch velvet–and the foam-filled cushions offer ample support.

Best Artificial Fir Tree

22. Andover Mills Artificial Fraser Fir Christmas Tree


Finally, a gorgeous artificial tree that looks like the real deal (sans the falling needles or bugs). Its modern design features a black metal frame and lush, Fraser fir PVC branches with a stable footed base that'll prevent it from tipping over. The tree also comes with pre-lit warm white lights that are sure to bring a cozy ambiance to your living room.
