Whether you have future resolutions for hitting the gym in 2023 or you are someone who loves taking mini getaways, the Etronik duffel bag is a must! It comes in nine colors and designs, so you can pick the one that matches your style best. Plus, it is suitable for indoor and outdoor activities.

A layer of foamy milk froth will surely upgrade your morning brew and create a soothing, rich new mouthfeel. Forget Starbucks; you can have a delicious coffee that tastes like a pro barista made it for you. Best part? You’ll save loads of money!

Kaywide Pullover

KAYWIDE Women's Casual Fuzzy Fleece Pullover

The Kaywide pullover is basically a Columbia jacket dupe, but once you throw it on and feel that oh-so-cozy comfort, you’ll understand why it was so popular throughout 2022!

The fluffy sherpa is warm and won’t bother your skin like some other materials, even after washing it several times. The five neutral colors it comes in are so lovely— you might have a hard time picking your favorite.

It’s the perfect extra layer to wear all fall, winter, and spring, but it also makes a great pullover in the cool evenings outdoors throughout summer.

Crockpot Lunchbox

Crockpot Electric Lunch Box

The crockpot lunchbox is an ingenious and practical appliance for anyone who loves packing their lunch to go. The 20-ounce capacity is large enough for a personal-portioned lunch, but you’ll also love using it for dips you bring to parties.

Whether you hate using the gross office microwave (that no one ever cleans) or you sometimes like to take the comfort of home to work with you, the portable crockpot warmer is one you’ll appreciate having. Just plug your mini crockpot in when you get to work, wait as the room fills with a homey aroma, then enjoy a delicious hot lunch everyone will be jealous of.

It’s a great way to save on plastic and avoid shuffling around for forks and knives in the office kitchen. Plus, real cutlery always beats that cheap flimsy plasticware. The stainless steel cutlery set comes with a full-size fork, spoon, and knife, and you’ll appreciate how the set and carrying case are both dishwasher-safe.
