To start our list: There's a reason why the 7-in-1 Instant Pot ($100) is so popular with our readers. You won't believe all the amazing meals this powerful pressure cooker can make. Just pull that meat out of the freezer, or rice out of the pantry, and get going. Here are some great Instant Pot recipes to get your first meal started.
A Brita pitcher so you won't even need bottled water ($27)
There's no reason to spend hours trying to find an elusive case of bottled water when you can just filter out the impurities in your home's tap water with a Brita pitcher. This one comes with a filter that lasts for two months.
This European-style replacement for toilet paper ($48)
This easy-to-install Luxe bidet may not eliminate your need for toilet paper, but you will use a lot less of it. Which is good, since we haven't seen TP in stock at our local supermarket for at least a week now.
The pretzels will cover your salty cravings, so now it's time to do something about those chocolate cravings. This 2-pound pack comes as 70 fun-size bags, so there's no worry about germy fingers touching candies you'll eat later.
Enough coffee to get you through the months ahead ($34)
A new Keurig brewer isn't going to get you very far without a supply of K-cups to go with it. We love this 100-count box from Gevalia -- the coffee tastes fantastic and at just 34 cents per cup, the price is right.
A new Kindle to catch up on all those books you've been meaning to read ($130)
Now that you've finally got some spare time on your hands, why don't you catch up on all the great reads that have come out lately? Amazon's Kindle Paperwhite is waterproof, so you can take it right into the bath with you.
If you're going to be spending a lot of time indoors, you may as well make sure your home smells good. This oil diffuser comes with 6 bottles of essential oils, so you can start experimenting right away.
This aromatherapy fox you toss in the microwave ($19.99)
Is there anything better than a warm heating pad when you're feeling under the weather? This lavender-scented fox is just as perfect for soothing sick kids as it is for relaxing away your own aches and pains.
This insanely long string of lights to make your home more cozy ($11.99)
One of the easiest ways to make your home feel more welcoming and comfortable is new lighting. This 66-foot roll of USB string lights lets you get creative with placement -- you can even illuminate an entire wall.
There's no need to head to the supermarket for herbs when you've got fresh ones growing right in your kitchen. This hydroponic system from Aerogarden comes with six seed pods to get things started right out of the box.
This humidifier to keep your home more comfortable ($48)
Remember when you were sick as a kid and your mom would get out that old, clunky, noisy humidifier to make you feel better? Well, this brand-new model is way quieter and compatible with essential oils.
Why not use all that extra time you have at home to create a comfy new reading and relaxation space for yourself? This hanging chair strung with LED lights is a perfect addition, though you may want to pair it with this optional $150 stand.
This adjustable kettlebell to keep you active at home ($149)
Stay in shape even if you can't get to crossfit class with this adjustable Bowflex kettlebell -- just turn the dial on top to increase the weight from 8 up to 40 pounds. It even comes with access to trainer-led videos.
