But, holiday season aside, we noticed some practical buys sneak their way into the spotlight as usual. Nectar mattresses, pill organizers, and price-slashed coffee machines sold like hotcakes.

As a toast to surviving another year — and another annual holiday shop-a-palooza — you deserve to treat yourself to as many of these December R29 reader favorites as your wallet can handle.
