Pure Daily Care Aromatherapy Essence Diffuser

Price:$36.95See Reviews

De-stress at the end of a long day with the restorative scents of lavender and eucalyptus. This Essence Diffuser features seven ambient light modes, two intensity settings, four timer settings and a useful auto shut-off feature for low water levels. The essential oils are 100% pure with no added fillers or additives. The kit includes ten essential oils from jasmine to nutmeg. Experiment with different scents depending on your mood, the time of day and the season. We love nutmeg, clove and peppermint for this time of year!

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“I’ve had many diffusers in my life, and this one is my favorite! It really does a good job at diffusing the essential oils, and it’s a nice, neutral color. I was hesitant at first because I didn’t know the quality of oils for this brand. However, I’ve been very happy with it so far. Everyone in the office loves to stop by my desk because of this diffuser. I can’t believe I got this diffuser and all the oils for such a great price. That is unheard of in stores. Diffusers usually run anywhere from $25 to $50, and then essential oils can be as high as $75. This is definitely a great buy.”

TaoTronics Cool Mist Humidifier

Price:$62.99See Reviews

Struggling with dry skin and lips as the temperatures turn chilly? Spring for a humidifier to add moisture to your home. The TaoTronics Humidifier is incredibly silent — perfect for a disturbance-free sleep. You can turn on the nightlight, or you can press sleep mode to shut off the LED screen as you rest. The four liter tank capacity lasts up to 30 hours, and an LED display lets you adjust the mist and humidity levels. Snooze on as you beautify yourself.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“We have two other humidifiers made by Vicks and Sunbeam, but this TaoTronics is my favorite. The mist feature is awesome because it seems to make the room a little cooler. The handles on the top and next to the place where you fill the water make it easy to fill. I bought this humidifier because I have to change the filters very frequently for my other humidifiers. This one has a reusable filter that can be cleaned.”

Bose QuietComfort 35 Wireless Headphones II

Price:$349.00

Soundtrack your life in style. These Bose headphones boast comfort and exceptional sound quality, and they're also super cute. We love the blush pink style for a pop of color. The headphones are noise cancelling. They also feature up to 20 hours of wireless listening per charge so you can listen to your entire playlist without worrying about the battery dying. The headphones boast voice control so you can ask Alexa all your pressing questions.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“I received my headphones about six weeks after I ordered them. The fit and finish of the selected colors met my expectations for the additional cost of the custom headphones. This is my second pair, and my first pair of customized headphones. The first pair in silver still works, but I wanted a specialized color. These headphones work perfectly for my use, which includes connecting the headphones to my iPhone, iPad and Mac. There are times when I’m connecting to a Mac and a video is already playing so the voice starts out of sync. Restarting the video re-syncs the audio and video. This also happens with other Bluetooth headsets so it’s not isolated to the QC 35 II. I completely enjoy the perfection of these headsets. I would buy another pair if I didn’t already own two.”

TCL 40” 1080p Smart LED Roku TV

Price:$199.99

Stream your favorite movies and TV shows with crystal clear picture quality. This smart TV includes 40 inches of viewing pleasure and three HDMIs. The set is compatible with Netflix, Hulu, HBO, YouTube and more. Elevate your next movie night with the TV that gets over four star reviews.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“I love this TV. I haven’t had it for very long, but I’ve enjoyed it for the time I’ve had it. This TV is the second one I’ve purchased in the last two months. I purchased a smaller-sized TV in July, and my cat knocked it off the dresser. I didn’t even have it a month! But that was totally my fault. I didn’t have it mounted, and the TV was super light. So I decided to go a little bigger this time and mounted my new TV on the wall. The cats will not be destroying this one. This TV is super cool. I added my Spotify account so when I don’t like what Pandora is playing I can switch the music. Anyway, I love this TV. Do yourself a favor, and get yourself one too.”

Apple Watch Series 3

Price:$199.00

Hit your health goals with an Apple Watch that's cute and convenient all at once. You can leave your phone behind as you take calls, stream songs, get directions and send texts all from your watch. Tone up as you track your workouts, sleep and daily steps.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“Buying this watch was one of the best decisions I could have made for my health. It challenges me to meet my daily goals, which include burning calories, getting enough movement in per day and not sitting as much. I’ve greatly expanded the number of steps I get per day, and I exercise more on a daily basis. I wear this watch during kickboxing, and it doesn’t get damaged with my gloves on. Having an Apple Watch is like having an accountability partner with you at all times. The fact that I can also use my watch in place of my iPhone for calls and texts is just an added plus. My Apple Watch has so many features that I haven’t even gotten to yet. It’s great to check the weather, news, my heart rate and social media. I only need to charge the battery every other day, and I wear it daily. I like the size of my Apple Watch on my arm. It’s not too big or small. This is a great purchase. Don’t hesitate if you’re thinking of buying an Apple Watch as well. Your body will thank you.”

Ring Video Doorbell

Price:$99.99See Reviews

Check in on your home at anytime from anywhere with a Ring Video Doorbell. Alexa will send you notifications whenever someone presses the doorbell or activates the motion sensors. A video feature allows you to see and speak to whoever is there. It makes warding off crime that much easier.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“This is a great way to view who is coming to your house without opening the door. You can even view and speak to whoever is there from a remote site so no one has to know you aren’t home. I have seen some reviews that mention that a thief or scammer can tell they’re on camera. That is a good thing — not a bad thing! I want this system to be a deterrent to anyone standing at my door who shouldn’t be. I was also very pleased by the customer service. My motion sensor didn’t work but if the doorbell was used, it notified me. After suggesting various very simple fixes by computer chat, the representative informed me a replacement was on the way. The new system was overnighted and came to me right away. I simply had to return the defective unit in a paid return envelope. I would not hesitate to recommend this device and have already done so to many of my friends and neighbors.”

iHome Mirror with Bluetooth

Price:$49.88

Speed up your morning routine with a mirror that also charges your phone, plays music and teams up with Siri or Google. The mirror itself is excellent quality with a 10x spot mirror that will show you every detail of your face as you apply your makeup. Plus, voice control and a USB port optimize this mirror with all the tools you need for a smooth start to your day. Say goodbye to hectic Mondays!

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“This is everything I have ever wanted and didn’t even know that I needed in a makeup mirror. The mirror itself is exceptional, and the lighting couldn’t be better. The added bluetooth speaker has to be the best and most unique aspect of this product. It has made every morning go smoother. No more stopping in the middle of getting ready to answer the phone or look something up. I love being able to listen to my podcasts and music on a sparkling clear speaker. The idea is brilliant, and I will never go back to a regular makeup mirror. I plan to gift this mirror to several of my ladies as a Christmas gift. I have no doubt this mirror will become their favorite as well. I have nothing but positive feelings about this product and give it a thumbs up all the way around. Oh, and I can’t fail to mention the charger. It charges my phone quickly, and my phone always needs charging. This mirror is amazing, and the best beauty product I have seen yet.”

Verilux HappyLight

Price:$79.95See Reviews

Does drab winter weather have you feeling sleepy and sad? The Verilux HappyLight provides white light therapy recommended by professionals for improving your sleep and boosting your mood. You can customize the light intensity to your personal preference. The HappyLight mimics sunlight, which is perfect for places that don't see the sun for many months. Let there be light!

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“For starters, I live in Seattle. It is mid-October, and it has already been dark and grey for two to three weeks. We won’t have a decent amount of sun until May or June. When we first moved here from sunny Austin, Texas, I heard about SAD and droopy people. I felt tough and proud that I didn’t have any trouble with the darkness. Then I started getting sick frequently in the winter, and finally I started getting sick all winter. I noticed I wasn’t bouncing back. I wasn’t motivated to get back into shape, go out with friends or do anything, really. I wish I had found this light five years ago. The first day I used it for about 15 minutes. I wasn’t sure, but I thought I felt a little peppier for the first few hours after I used it. The second day, I used it for 20 to 30 minutes. I definitely felt better. I’ve used it for a couple weeks now, and it has significantly improved my quality of life. I definitely have more energy, vitality and interest in everything in my life. I have forgotten to use it a couple of times. By the afternoon on those days, I’m dragging and wondering what’s wrong. Then I realize I didn't use my HappyLight. My HappyLight really helps give me my life back in fall, and I assume the effect will continue into winter and spring. Hopefully, I won’t have any trouble with reliability over time.”

Amazon Echo Studio

Price:$199.99See Reviews

Get the smart speaker people are raving about for its immersive sound, voice control and overall efficiency. You can ask Alexa to play music, tell you the weather and read the news. You can also stream songs from Spotify, Pandora, Apple Music and more. The Echo Studio adapts to any room, fine-tuning playback to the acoustics of your space.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“This is an incredible product. I have purchased all the Amazon Echo products. This one has far exceeded my expectations. I worry about the microphones listening in on my conversations, but I take comfort they can be turned off. The sound is rich, enveloping and awesome. I have an open room, but in a smaller room the sound would be so much richer. The sound carries at full volume with barely any distortion. Bravo, Amazon.”

Keurig K-Mini Plus Coffee Maker

Price:$75.49See Reviews

If you act like a zombie before you have your morning brew, this Keurig is for you. Get fresh brewed coffee in minutes with the touch of a button. This Keurig is energy efficient and small, making it perfect for easy transport. You won't need to clear off your countertops to fit this fun, mini coffee maker. The product comes in four aesthetically pleasing colors from "Evening Teal" to "Cardinal Red."

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“I absolutely love this mini Keurig. It’s perfect for my home office. It’s easy to set up and use. It doesn’t take up a lot of counter space so it’s a good fit for home offices, dorms and small apartments. I can quickly make a six to 12 ounce cup of coffee. Best of all, the coffee comes out hot not lukewarm. The water reservoir is removable so I can quickly fill it up. The Keurig comes with a storage bin that holds up to nine K-cups. It’s also travel-mug friendly. If I remove the bottom stand, it accommodates my taller travel mug. For those that like a stronger cup of coffee, it has a strong brew setting.”

KitchenAid Artisan Series Stand Mixer

Price:$279.99See Reviews

For many, the holidays mean tons of cooking. Whether you're preparing apple pie or cranberry sauce, you'll need a mixer that gets the job done. The KitchenAid is the best in genre — the #1 household stand mixer and a favorite among foodies. We love that this KitchenAid is deeply discounted and comes in an iconic "Cobalt Blue" color. Unleash your inner chef with a blender that includes a six-wire whip, powerful motor and a 59-point planetary mixing action for all your culinary needs.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“I love my mixer! My husband bought this for me for Christmas last year, and this is the best gift I’ve ever received. I bought several of the attachments, such as the fabulous ice cream maker, the spiralizer (so much better than the Vegetti) and the food processor attachment. I leave this little beauty out on my counter because it’s such a pretty thing to look at it, plus it’s ready to use as soon as I need it. When I get a sudden urge to make brownies or bake a loaf of bread for dinner, it’s so easy to grab my ingredients and whatever attachment, bowl or beater I need, then whip something up. Cleaning is easy with the stainless bowls. There are so many colors to choose from so there’s no way you can’t find one that is aesthetically pleasing in your kitchen. One other aspect I love is that the attachments can be used with older mixers. I don’t need to worry about buying new attachments. If you watch the popular cooking shows, you’ll notice a majority of the hosts use a KitchenAid mixer. There’s a reason for that. It’s the best!”

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“This was a great gift for my boyfriend’s mom when we visited their cabin on the lake. We took a bunch of pictures all weekend and put them in a scrapbook! This instant film camera is a great way to make some memories. It took a little while to figure out the settings depending on the lighting, but that’s kind of the idea.”

KitchenAid Countertop Blender

Price:$179.99See Reviews

The food possibilities are endless! This KitchenAid blends icy drinks, smoothies, margaritas, soups and more. You can control the taste and texture of your food with a five-speed variable dial. Whether you're craving a green smoothie or butternut squash soup, this blender can handle it all. The soft start feature avoids splatter, so you won't be decorating your walls with smoothie ingredients. A powerful blade cuts through the toughest ingredients for smooth, delicious creations.

What Reviewers Are Saying:

“I’ve been using this blender daily since it arrived. I absolutely love it. I make a green smoothie for dinner every night. This is my third blender in as many months, and it’s the only one that consistently produces a perfectly blended and fluffed drink. Seriously, the texture this produces is remarkable. It’s almost like a milkshake. In addition, I love that there is a setting on the machine to make the smoothie perfect every time. What makes this blender so fantastic is that the base of the unit is dense. It’s so heavy that it’s the only blender I’ve had in ages that doesn’t “dance” on my countertop when I’m trying to blend frozen items. It just works beautifully. The machine also looks gorgeous and so well made. It’s a time saver to be able to toss the pitcher and lid in the dishwasher. I also like that there are lots of add-ons you can get. I plan to get the portable smoothie maker for sure. Overall, you can’t go wrong with this incredibly well-built machine.”
