Why do we all love Amazon? 😂 It’s hard to explain, but the combination of super-quick (usually) shipping and the wide variety of items available makes it irresistible. I love looking at other people’s Amazon favorites and finding great things, and I’m so excited to do my first Amazon post for you all!!
Simple Modern 24-ounce Convertible Tumbler– Let’s start off with the Amazon purchase I fell in love with most this year, and have gone on to buy my sister, mom, good friend and others! This tumbler actually got me to start drinking more water and stay better hydrated by making it so easy and enjoyable. The patterns and colors and beautiful, but best of all—your beverage will actually stay cold (like the ice won’t melt) for almost 24 hours! As someone who really doesn’t like lukewarm drinking water, this makes it so much nicer. The tumbler comes with a straw lid and two silicone washable straws as well as a flip-top lid. It also doesn’t sweat or leave rings. I just can’t recommend it enough and there’s a color for everyone in your life!
Co-op Home Loft Pillow– I have always struggled with my pillows being too flat or too hard, and I’ve been waking up with neck or back pain for the last year or two. Then I saw several posts from the beautiful Nasreen of Hey Nasreen talking about these amazing pillows that were the only ones she and her husband would use; so when I got an Amazon gift card from a sweet student, I decided to give it a try! I look forward to sleeping on this pillow now, and it always feels just right. I’ve never actually looked forward to laying my head down, so it’s definitely worth it!
AirPods Silicone Protective Case– I always looked at AirPod cases and thought they really weren’t worth it, since I didn’t see a problem with my AirPods on their own. But when I saw the inexpensive and cute little case, I thought it couldn’t hurt to give it a try. Not only do I feel safer that my AirPods are protected now, I love this color and it makes them easy to spot in a purse or tote. The silicone still looks brand new, and hasn’t stained or gotten worn. It comes in several colors, and is great if you have a pair of AirPods that you’re looking to keep safe and easy to find!
PadPillow Stand for iPad– This product is perfect for these times when you are probably on your tablet more than usual, and your wrists can get sore from typing at a weird angle, or you need something to prop up your iPad for a video call or to watch streaming. I love this stand when I’m using my iPad on the couch or in bed, and it makes typing so much comfortable for me. It folds into several different configurations based on what you need, and comes in several different colors. This has been a big help to me this year!
Folding Home Computer Desk– speaking of quarantine-inspired purchases, this desk was 100% inspired as I started working from home all the time this spring, and needed a space to work on my laptop that wasn’t the kitchen table! The shipping took a while, but once it arrived, it fit perfectly in the corner of my bedroom and has been a game-changer for having a dedicated work space that doesn’t take up a ton of square-footage in a two bedroom apartment. The desk comes fully assembled (be warned, that box is heavy!) and can easily be folded back up and stored under a bed or in a closet if not needed. I’m planning to keep mine set up for the foreseeable future, but this is super versatile and very sturdy for a variety of home office needs. I really love this one!
Cosori Electric Kettle– I had never owned an electric kettle before this year, but I was at a friend’s house and she was showing me how easy and quick it was to boil water for tea or cooking with this countertop electric kettle. I was intrigued so I decided to give it a try, and let me tell you—it has most certainly increased the hot tea consumption in this house! It’s so convenient to keep out for quickly making hot beverages or for using whenever you need boiling water in a recipe. It also has safety features that keep you from ever accidentally leaving a kettle on the stove which dries up and ruins it. Definitely a good household staple to have that I much prefer to the stovetop version!
Dash Rapid Egg Cooker– This thing might seem like just another kitchen gadget that you don’t need, but it is actually so easy to use and very helpful for quickly whipping up almost any kind of eggs you would like! Although it’s biggest feature is boiling eggs soft, medium or hard, you can also make poached eggs or little mini omelettes that are crazy easy. It can take a bit of trial and error to have them come out exactly as done as you would like, but this really does make eggs in the morning so much faster and kind of fun to prepare!
Cocktail Glass Set After having friends over for lemon drop martinis, and realizing I had no good glasses to serve them in, I hopped on Amazon to see what I could find in the glass department. I found this adorable little set of glasses which are just right for many cocktails! They’re sturdy and stylish and make a great addition to your glassware collection for margaritas, martinis and more!
Have fun shopping these and please let me know if you pick up anything for your house! Can’t wait to hear what you think and what your favorites are!
