Barnes & Noble

“I have a suspicion that a Venn diagram of people who love books and people who love candles is a circle (and I’m in it). I’m loving this new page-turning collab with one of my favorite candle brands.” —Tara Bellucci, News and Culture Director

“A few weeks ago, I started waking up in the middle of the night coughing (thanks, springtime allergies!), so I knew I needed to get a humidifier — and stat. Vitruvi sent me their gorgeous, nightstand-friendly humidifier, and it immediately helped alleviate my allergies. I love that it has multiple settings, is a breeze to refill, and the handy humidity sensor (sold separately) has been a total game-changer.” —Tamara Kraus, Commerce Managing Editor

“As I figure out my room's color scheme, I'm definitely leaning toward more earthy tones. I struggled with choosing a color, but I decided to buy these curtains in russet orange. Really grateful that they're rated well and prevent light and heat from coming into my room!” —Noella Williams, Assistant News & Culture Editor

Boutique Rugs
was $509.00

“I just ordered this Gene area rug in 6'7” by 9’ from Boutique Rugs for my home office, and I love it. I’m grateful to have an entire bedroom dedicated to my office, but our rooms still have carpet so I needed something big that wasn’t going to break my budget. This rug is 58 percent off right now, so that means it's only $209!” —Savannah West, Home Assistant Editor

“I’ve been on the hunt for a light-up makeup mirror for a while now but hated the idea of having to find a place to plug one in. When I found this mirror from Ilios, however, I was immediately smitten. Not only is it rechargeable, but it also features a smart magnetic design that lets you remove the mirror head from the base, transforming [it] into both a handheld and travel-friendly option. It’s also the first and only makeup mirror designed to mimic daylight so I never have to worry about makeup mismatching ever again. This might just be the greatest makeup mirror of all time.” —Sarah Vazquez, Commerce SEO Editor

“Another week, another home decor collaboration I’d be remiss not to mention here. Anthropologie just teamed up with Pernille Rosenkilde, a Danish magazine pro turned designer and influencer, on a collection of the absolute springiest home decor and clothing items. If you love pastel colors and whimsical details, from bows and ruffles to 3D flowers and butterflies, this is the collab for you. The glassware stands out to me; it’s hard to pick a favorite from the vintage-inspired pieces that feature a mix of fluting, pops of color, and confetti motifs. The Butterfly Bud Vases are perfect for a couple of simple stems, though, whether you get yours from your garden or a grocery store.” —Danielle Blundell, Executive Home Director

Arket Goods

“I absolutely don't need another candle, but I really want these Asian-inspired candles from ArtketGoods. They offer a discovery kit that features seven tea light candles, which allows you to explore so many scents, and it can be a great gift idea, too!” —Stephanie Nguyen, Cleaning & Organizing Editor

8 / 8
Josh Cellars

“I received two bottles of Josh Cellars Chardonnay — maybe the best company promo ever — and loved both. They're bright with a hint of oaky flavor and made perfect pairings with a salmon dinner, a charcuterie board with family, and, yes, Girl Scout cookies. I'm planning on buying a couple more bottles on my own, which goes to show how much I enjoyed them!” —Kelly Dawson, Deputy Editor
