“I love testing out fun, techy gadgets so when I got a chance to put the Tidbyt to the test, I jumped on it. I’ve seen this stylish little display all over social media, and after some time with it, it’s easy to see why it’s so popular. Not only is it an incredibly chic addition to my space, it’s also a fun way to keep up with various tidbits of daily information (including the time, weather, stocks, sports, transit information, and more) without needing to pick up my phone.” —Sarah Vazquez, Commerce SEO Editor

"I'm calling it: Remote control lights are going to take the place of puck lights this year. These bulbs are so much easier to handle on an everyday basis than digging under a lamp shade and make your space feel cozy and warm once they're turned on. I would pick up a few; these might be hard to find soon enough!" —Kelly Dawson, Deputy Editor

Rifle Paper Co.

"I’ve already sung the praises of this Rifle Paper Co. umbrella, but it bears repeating — especially since it’s been particularly rainy in New York this week (meh!). This French farmhouse-inspired print is a colorful reprieve from the all-black umbrella masses, but the best part is the wooden duck handle. I get compliments on this all the time, and its curved angle actually makes it easier to get a good grip." —Blair Donovan, Style Editor

"If you’re all about a fresh floral scent and treating yourself to something a little luxe, allow me to put Diptyque’s Do Son fragrance on your radar. This tuberose meets jasmine and orange blossom scent is equal parts sun and sea; the fragrance happens to be inspired by one of the Diptyque founder's mother and harks back to family summers spent on the beaches in Do Son, Vietnam. The collection includes an Eau de Parfum, an Eau de Toilette, a hand cream, and the Tubereuse Candle, which is housed in a beautiful matte teal vessel that I’d definitely upcycle into a makeup brush cup — or pen and pencil holder for my desk — after burning." —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

"Every small apartment needs this clever find. Although the Wayfair Basics shoe rack measures just 12 inches across, it can hold as many as 18 pairs of shoes at once. Its tiered hooks are great for holding sneakers, sandals, and other footwear that doesn’t go above the ankle. In other words, if you get it now, you’ll have it just in time for spring. And even if you’re dealing with a shoe collection that rivals Imelda Marcos’, you can keep your most worn flats on this rack and stow the rest away in your closet." —Nikol Slatinska, Editorial Assistant
