As I continued applying it, I noticed that it also had a blurred effect and seemed to minimize the look of my pores while at the same time making me look extremely radiant." — Renee Rodriguez, staff writer and social producer, Beauty

Trophy-Shaped Vase

Trophy-Shaped Vase

Ceramic Trophy Vase ($15)

This small trophy-shaped vase could pass as a flea market score. Its sculptural shape means it looks just as good empty as it does when it's filled with flowers. Our editor brought it home and has already found several ways to style it, including as a kitchen crock filled with wooden cooking spoons. Read all about her experience in this Ceramic Trophy Vase review.

Editor quote: "It's a petite vase, which I actually love since it doesn't require a ton of flowers to be filled. The trophy shape reminds me of pricier vintage options I've sourced but decided to pass on because of their steep prices. It's such a sculptural shape that it looks just as lovely without flowers." — Angela Elias, contributing editor, Commerce

Helpful Tracker

Apple AirTag ($30)

If you're worried about losing your luggage while traveling or you find yourself constantly forgetting where you put your keys or purse, you need an Apple AirTag. This tiny device can track your belongings through the Find My app, so you'll know exactly where your things are. Read our in-depth review of the Apple AirTag.

Editor quote: "I thought these little devices were brilliant. Each AirTag is tiny; all four fit in the palm of my hand, as shown above. They took about 30 seconds to set up; all you need is your iPhone close by, and they pair automatically. I bought a four-pack because my family had four checked bags, and I named each one for the colored luggage tag on each bag, so I would know which was which. Using the Find My app that's installed on all iPhones, I was able to track our bags from check-in until takeoff, and again when we landed back in the States." — India Yaffe, former associate editor, Commerce

Linen Pillows

Linen Pillows

Woven Washed Windowpane Throw Pillow ($30)

Large throw pillows with removable cases can be expensive, but these cream-colored pillows from Target's Threshold collection capture the textural look of linen while still being totally affordable. Our editor has them and loves how easy they are to mix and match and that the pillowcases can be removed and thrown in the wash when they get dirty. For more details, check out this Woven Washed Windowpane Throw Pillow review.

Editor quote: "At 24 inches by 24 inches, this is an oversize pillow, which is the perfect size for anchoring each corner of a sofa. It's a large enough size to lean on for full back support or snuggle up with for a nap or while watching a movie. The material looks and feels like a soft linen and has a woven windowpane grid design, so even though it's a solid, neutral color, there's still plenty of texture and visual interest." — AE

Stoneware Baking Dish

Stoneware Baking Dish

Hearth & Hand With Magnolia Oven-to-Table Stoneware Oval Baking Dish ($35)

Not only is this baking dish a gorgeous kitchen addition, but it's also a one-and-done baking tool. You can read our review of the Hearth & Hand with Magnolia Oven-to-Table Stoneware Oval Baking Dish.

Editor quote: "I can't tell you how many times I've ruined the look of a dessert or casserole simply because I've had to transfer it from an oven-safe dish to a table-ready serving plate or bowl. It might not seem like an extensive step, but after a day filled with baking or cooking over a hot stove, you really just want to skip to the part of getting to actually enjoy what you've spent all this time making — rather than having to move it around and dirty more utensils in the process. With the versatility of the dish, I can cook easy dinners like lasagnas or savory casseroles, and I can also use it for sweeter treats, like my go-to apple cobbler recipe (seen above)." — Kykey Warren, assistant editor, Commerce

Weekender Bag

Open Story Signature Weekender Bag ($81)

Luggage can be pricey, and when you're already splurging on the cost of travel, lodging, and maybe a new outfit or two, the last thing you want to shell out money for is a piece of luggage. This weekender from Target is the perfect personal carry-on since it can tuck underneath an airplane seat.

High-Tech Earbuds

Beats Studio Buds ($150)

Elevate any listening experience when you have these earbuds. These wireless noise-canceling headphones offer two main listening modes — Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) and Transparency mode — both of which provide impeccably good sound quality. On top of that, they have up to eight hours of listening time, so you can binge any podcast or album you want. Read our in-depth review of the Beats Studio Buds.

Editor quote: "ANC blocks out the external noise and clutter so you can tune out the world and immerse yourself in the sounds. Transparency mode offers a more natural listening experience and lets you be aware of your surroundings. It's been quite useful on the train or subway so I don't accidentally miss my stop. When I tested out the ANC mode, I was shocked at how well it blocks out the external hustle and bustle and hones in on the crystal-clear audio." — AR

Arched Floor Mirror

Arched Floor Mirror

Wooden Arch Mirror ($173, originally $230)

If you're looking for a floor length mirror, this arched wooden beauty from the Threshold collection designed with Studio McGee is a solid choice. Our editor placed it in her bedroom and writes about how it instantly expanded the room and added architectural interest. Read all about her thoughts and see how she styled it in this Threshold x Studio McGee Wooden Arch Mirror review.

Editor quote: "At 72 inches tall and 32 inches wide, this mirror creates its own architectural moment, which is a big deal when you're working with orange peel-textured walls and low ceilings, but I digress. It's large enough to almost look like another doorway, which makes our bedroom seem infinitely larger and brighter. It weighs just over 40 pounds, so it looks and feels expensive." — AE

Accent Bench
POPSUGAR Photography | Marisa Petrarca

Accent Bench

Hearth & Hand Upholstered Natural Wood Accent Bench ($200)

If you want to give your bedroom a subtle upgrade, this will do the trick. Not only does it add a tasteful accent to the end of the bed, but it's also very practical since you can sit on it or use it as a place to put clothes before you hang them up. You can read our review of the Hearth & Hand Upholstered Natural Wood Accent Bench.

Editor quote: "This accent bench is one of my favorite purchases of the year. I was looking for a wood and linen design that was chic yet comfortable, and a lot of the designs I came across didn't evoke a cozy feel. I had a good feeling about this one even before I tried it IRL because it boasts a thick padded seat that I figured could double as a resting spot for my dog, Cooper. Spoiler alert: he loves it, and so do I." — MP

Smart Coffee Machine
POPSUGAR Photography | Anvita Reddy

Smart Coffee Machine

Keurig K-Café Smart Coffee Machine ($200)

TV Stand
POPSUGAR Photography | Marisa Petrarca

TV Stand

Springville Caned Door TV Stand ($330)

Our editor brought this home and loves the way it looks and functions. Read all about her experience in this Springville Caned Door TV Stand review.

Editor quote: "What I love most about this TV stand is how chic it looks. It elevated my space without a wildly high price tag — and that's always a win in my book. After all, as a tried-and-true fan of cane furniture, I've spent plenty of time researching different pieces, and the large majority of pieces — whether a TV stand, a bed frame, or even some lounge chairs — cost well over $1,000." — MP

Smart Headphones
POPSUGAR Photography | Renee Rodriguez

Smart Headphones

Apple AirPods Max Headphones ($449, originally $549)

As for the cherry on top: these headphones have a cool feature that allows Siri to read you your text messages, and you can even respond back with voice activation. Read our in-depth review of the Apple AirPods Max Headphones.

Editor quote: "First and foremost: the sound. The sound on the AirPods Max is extremely clear — I've never had any issues with music sounding far away or "tinny." I can hear every single word of Death Cab For Cutie's "Title and Registration" as if Ben Gibbard himself were singing into my ears. The headphones also have a "Digital Crown" button where you can control the volume, answer phone calls, skip music, and use Siri. I love that I don't have to pick up my phone every time I want to turn up the volume." — RR
