Tile Kitchen Mat
Standing over the stove and sink for hours on end leaves your joints and back sore. Ugh! Enter this Letha tile kitchen mat, one of our absolute favorite ways to make cooking more comfortable. The trendy print is offered in a variety of up-to-date colors, and the comfortable foam construction makes it one of the best kitchen items to buy on Wayfair right now. The best part? It has rubber non-slip grips on its backside to keep you safe.
Reclining Chaise Set
This resort-style Putney reclining chaise lounge set comes complete with plush cushions and a matching side table that instantly turns your outdoor space into a backyard oasis. Extra seating means extra space for outdoor entertaining. Considering you get two matching chaises, a table and luxurious cushions to boot—the set is a Wayfair steal and can’t be passed up. You can only find the set at Wayfair, and the wicker rattan exterior adds timeless appeal to any outdoor space.
Soup Bowl Set
This set of four Ethier soup bowls features four 28-ounce capacity ceramic vessels that are ideal for your best soup recipes. AND they’re fun to use for large pours of tasty breakfast cereals, robust oatmeal and cozy pasta dishes for one. The soup bowl set is dishwasher and microwave-safe. The easily-matched earthy natural ceramic tone and pattern looks waaaaay more expensive than they actually are.
Round Solid Oak Dining Table
Get excited for this round solid oak dining table from Wade Logan. It’s nearly impossible to find a table this well-made at such an affordable price point anywhere else. Choose from four wood finishes ranging from traditional walnut to modern white, and then figure out which friends you’ll be inviting for dinner on its 47.25-inch surface that perfectly fits a party of four. Add your best placemats, and you’re ready to host!
Taste of Home 10-Piece Bakeware Set
It’s no secret that we’re totally smitten with our Taste of Home bakeware and cooking accessories. After all, we did design and test it at the Taste of Home Test Kitchen. Our 10-piece bakeware set makes a thoughtful housewarming gift or replenishes your own stash of baking gear with top-of-the-line goods that make professional-level baking at home a breeze. It comes with a variety of core essentials including several baking sheets, cake pans, a muffin pan, cooling rack and much more. Plus, everything is non-stick, dishwasher-safe and free of harmful chemicals like PFOA and PTFE.
Sleep Cooling Memory Foam Pillow
Don’t sleep on bedding at Wayfair! You’re going to want to nap all day when you feel how comfortable this Wayfair Sleep cooling memory foam pillow is. Hands down (and head down), it’s one of the best deals Wayfair has to offer and a top-reviewed product that stays cool all night without being flipped or readjusted in search of a cold spot. It offers medium support that’s ideal for most types of sleepers, has a removable 100 percent cotton case and makes a perfect Mother’s Day gift for sleep-deprived moms.
Wood-Top Rolling Kitchen Cart
You don’t need to invest thousands in a kitchen remodel when you have this gorgeous Kuhnenn kitchen cart with a solid wood top standing front and center. The 53.5-inch wide piece is surprisingly budget-friendly, extremely well-made and boasts a solid wood top that hits all the current trend notes. You’ll love preparing meals on it, rolling it into the dining room as an impromptu buffet serving station and putting a few bar stools beside it when it’s locked in place.
Char-Broil 2 Propane Gas Grill
The 20,000 BTUs in this Char-Broil propane gas grill will power your outdoor cooking all year long. The stainless steel body fits even compact outdoor spaces and patios and holds a clever cabinet on its bottom half for neat propane tank storage and additional space. It’s perfect for grilling up a storm and making healthy BBQ foods.
Bouck Comfort Kitchen Mat
Sure, this Bouck Comfort kitchen mat is ideal for the kitchen—but it’s also a total lifesaver anywhere else you’re prone to standing (like a craft workspace or standing desk). The squishy, durable foam is backed with non-slip grip and just enough give to keep hardworking bodies (and joints) comfortable for long stretches. It’s easy to clean and lasts for years without worry, making it one of the best gifts for chefs.
Rattan Outdoor Seating Set for Four
This versatile Hogans wicker/rattan outdoor seating set for four is one of the most brilliant Wayfair buys out there. It rivals what other furniture stores carry, but at a far better price (seriously, it’s about half the price we’ve seen at other stores!). It’s a hero product that instantly creates an inviting outdoor space, and it even includes the matching cushions an additional time and money-saver. Add an outdoor rug, a few succulent pots and decor items like a wind chime and your space will go from ho-hum to ahhh, home. It also ships ultra-fast and comes in two neutral shades.
Bar Cart with Wine Bottle Storage
Hello, elegance! This Tibo bar cart boasts wine bottle storage and just the right Midas touch of glam. The champagne gold finish is our favorite, but it also comes in more subdued matte black, white and gray finishes for those who prefer an understated look. The 40-inch wide frame is just the right size to neatly tuck into compact dining and living room spaces, and the sturdy undercarriage boasts plenty of storage space for everything you need to whip up your prettiest spring cocktails.
Pyrex Glass Storage Container Set
Adding a set of the best glass storage containers to your kitchen arsenal isn’t just pretty—it’s practical. This Pyrex container set includes nine microwave and dishwasher-safe containers with colorful matching lids that make meal and day-coding a breeze. Plastic-free bases mean your food will never be at risk for BPA or other potentially harmful chemicals. Use them for the salads you take to work or clever storage for leftovers.
This genius Capresso espresso machine is a Wayfair’s Choice product and we fully agree, although we have no idea how they made it SO affordable. At around $100, this Italian coffee-making gem makes lattes, cappuccino copycat drinks and even includes a milk frother. The brand is a reliable favorite and even made our list of the best coffee makers with grinders built-in.
Bissell SpotClean Pet Pro Carpet Cleaner
If you have pets at home, you need this portable Bissell SpotClean Pet Pro carpet cleaner in your life. Seriously, it’s one of the easiest carpet cleaning machines to use, and you don’t need any special filters or bags to make it work. Just fill the chamber with the included cleaning solution, plug it in, and make stain-removing miracles happen on your most precious carpets. We found that it also works wonders on upholstered sofas and fabric car interiors, and the easy-to-carry body makes using it a cinch—no matter where your pet makes a mess.
Bamboo Lazy Susan
Add extra storage space and easy access with this Rebrilliant lazy Susan in naturally bacteria-resistant bamboo. The 10-inch width and double shelving makes it one of our favorite lazy Susan turntables for storing spices and other small pantry items. It also makes a fun table centerpiece when you have guests over for dinner and want easy access to items like napkins, condiments and salt.
Seneca Washable Area Rug
There’s no reason to stress over spills and high-traffic areas when you have this trendy Seneca washable area rug on your floors. It comes in six versatile sizes and can easily be thrown into a large laundry machine when it gets dirty. The polyester-based weave also naturally resists stains, so it makes it an ideal choice for dining rooms and front hallways.
Fabric Bin Set
Organize everything in your closets with this clever set of three see-through fabric bin set that makes storage simpler than ever. Choose from muted beige or blue tones, and then load them up with socks, sweaters, toys, hats and gloves, work supplies and anything else that needs more…containing.
Rolling Ergonomic Mesh Office Chair
Anyone with a home office needs this brilliant Ergo3D ergonomic mesh executive chair to make long hours in front of a computer feel more comfortable. It’s one of our favorite home office essentials thanks to the padded arms, lumbar support, anti-microbial materials and ergonomic design that was created with healthy spines in mind. Wayfair ships it fast and offers an impressive array of colors to suit every home office design.
Toilet Paper Holder with Shelf
If we’re being really honest with each other, this iDesign Classico toilet paper holder with a shelf is probably the most-needed bathroom organizer we’ve ever seen. It gives smartphones a place to go (without being dropped in water), or displays odor-reducing sprays and sachets. Did we mention it’s cheap and makes a pretty practical college graduation gift on a budget.
Reversible Quilt Set
If ever there was a smart buy, it’s this Wayfair Basics reversible quilt set. It makes adding layered warmth to any bed more affordable and luxurious than ever. It comes in six neutral shades and three sizes with matching shams and is priced so well you can’t afford to not buy it. The double-brushed microfiber is super soft, diamond-quilted to look far more expensive than it really is, and can be machine washed and tumbled dry for easy care and maintenance. The price and design make it ideal for every room in the house, but the easy machine washing makes it a total win for high-traffic rooms and homes with kids or pets (or both!).
