It's that time of year when you've wiped yourself out buying gifts for everyone and getting ready for Christmas and New Year's. Finding just the right gift is exhausting, and remember it's about spending time with loved ones rather than just getting more stuff. That said, it might be nice to use whatever funds you might have left over to buy something special for your apartment to make it look and feel that much better. If you're fresh out of ideas, then we can point you in the right direction. Here are the best items for your apartment that are on sale right now.
If you're still sleeping with a sheet and a plain ol' blanket, you haven't experienced the warmth and softness of a great down comforter. Waking up in the middle of a freezing cold night because your bedding doesn't insulate and retain body heat well means you won't get a good night's rest. This down comforter is one of the best thanks to its 70% down and 30% feather insulation, 100% cotton cover, and quite baffle boxes for even distribution. It's 20% off all sizes right now (the Queen size is down from $300 to $168!), so get on it so you can sleep like a baby all winter long.
If you like to cook as much as we do, then you know it can be hard on your feet if you're spending a lot of time in the kitchen. Sometimes you don't really want to hunt down your slippers, either. A good anti-fatigue mat can help mitigate that, as well as provide a nice fresh look to your kitchen. This one is not only well-padded with premium PVC and thick foam that is phathalate-free, latex-free, and smell-free. but it also has beveled edges, a nice 1/2" thickness, and beautiful embossing and marbling so it's attractive. The 60x17" size means it covers plenty of floor space. Your feet will thank you. It's now down 38% from $40 to just a little over $25.
Okay, so a humidifier might not be your first choice to improve the look of your apartment, but this one easily qualifies and also pulls double duty to make your place feel more comfortable when the climate gets really dry. This 50-hour humidifier also prevents you from having to refill it every freakin' day. The 1.6 gallon tank runs for up to 6 nights per fill compared to smaller versions that only have a third the capacity. It can humidity a 500 square foot space, turn 360 degrees with the rotating nozzle, and run silent at less than 35 dB for peaceful sleep while it adds moisture to the air. It's now 20% off at only $70 (down from $87).
Bean bag chairs might remind you of the '70s, but that doesn't mean they haven't changed over the decades to accommodate modern decor. They also don't have to be made out of crap materials that make a ton of noise and look chintzy. This huge 7-foot bean bag chair is big enough for three people and the micro-suede cover is soft, breathable, and stain resistant. You can remove the cover and even throw the whole thing in the washing machine while the inner high-quality foam is kept in place by a polyester inner cover. The foam, itself, is made in the USA and 100% virgin recycled material. It's now $40 off the regular price of $300.
It's hard to choose good artwork for your apartment. You want it to be versatile and work for almost any room in your home. That's why we think this set of three minimalist pieces is great. Not only do the pieces work as a set together, but you can separate them for different rooms or walls in your apartment. Each one uses simple lines in an artful way. They employ black lines, beige backgrounds, and attractive design patterns on canvas and boxed frames measuring 12x16". The quality inks won't fade over time, and they certainly can dress up any space for very little money. They're now 10% off at $37 down from $41.
