A wooden beaded wall hanging to make it look like you studied “fibers” in art school and have a large collection of “textiles,” even if this is the only art you have hanging.


Promising review: “This wall hanging is so dang cute! Make sure you are aware of the measurements. I bought this thinking it was bigger. MY BAD for not paying attention to the measurement listed! It is pretty small. I hung it between the toilet and window in the bathroom, and it looks super cute in there.” —Jackie

Price: $10.00


A patterned throw pillow because (though you kind of hate to admit it) you are getting to that age where you care about lumbar support.


Promising review: “LOVE THIS PILLOW! I am going for a green and pink theme in my room just like the new Room Essentials line and this is so cute. It’s the perfect size and good quality for the price. When I picked it up I thought it was going to be at least $15 or more. It looks great with a green duvet set or comforter! Would buy again!” —Target reviewer

Price: $5.00

A funky terrazzo desk light to spruce up your space and make you look like a cool scientist, even if you barely passed chemistry.


Promising review: “This lamp is gorgeous and feels expensive. The base is concrete which weighs down the LED light so it’s not precarious and top heavy. The light is gorgeous — you can either plug it into your wall or use batteries. Don’t do both and you’ll be good to go! I highly recommend these lights for an affordable way to provide mood lighting in any room. A cute, modern touch!” —Lauren

A striped dish towel to inspire you to actually do your dishes for once. Well, it may inspired you to do like, one dish.
