A durable snow shovel for winter weatherIf you live somewhere that gets snow, you’re probably aware that sometimes the worst of winter weather hits between January and March. Don’t wait until you’re snowed in to order a shovel—get one now. Of all the snow shovels we’ve tested at Reviewed, we dubbed this True Temper one as the best value because it’s affordable yet durable and effective and also has an ergonomic design. It’s sold out almost everywhere, though, so you’ll want to scoop one up (pun intended) ASAP.Get the Ames True Temper 20 in. Aluminum Snow Shovel from Ace Hardware for $36.992. Our favorite air purifier We’ll likely continue spending more time at home in 2021, at least for the first few months. So we expect air purifiers will stay in high demand, with experts saying they not only keep your home clean and comfortable but may also help protect against COVID-19. After testing, our experts the Winix 5500-2 because it’s powerful at cleaning the air and noticeably removes odors, too.Get the Winix 5500-2 Air Purifier from Amazon for $159.993. A cozy throw blanketThrow blankets are always a hot commodity this time of year but they’re especially coveted amid the pandemic, as we all want to make our homes as comfortable and inviting as possible. Many popular throw blankets are quickly selling out, including the Barefoot Dreams blanket (which I own and can attest is the softest blanket I’ve ever used) and the Anthropologie Sophie throw. However, you can still get the above for now so act fast.4. An air fryer for healthier mealsEating healthier is one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions year after year. If it’s at the top of your list for 2021, you could benefit from an air fryer—you’ll satisfy that craving for fried food without the added fat or calories. When we put some of the most popular models to the test, we found the Philips XXL to be the best. It’s very spacious so you can cook enough for the whole family and it gives food that perfectly crispy fried texture.Get the Philips Airfryer XXL from Amazon for $299.955. The Kindle Paperwhite to keep you entertainedCabin fever is a real struggle in the bleak winter months, especially now that many of us are doing everything from home (including working, exercising, etc.). To help you beat boredom this season, snag a Kindle Paperwhite post-holidays. It’s our favorite Kindle because it has 24 levels of illumination so you can read anytime, anywhere and it provides instant access to thousands of books and e-books.Get the Kindle Paperwhite from Amazon for $129.996. A planner to get organizedBehind every successful start to a new year is an even better planner. Enter the Panda Planner, which has over 6,400 glowing reviews on Amazon. It has monthly, weekly, and even daily views along with plenty of space to record all of your tasks, to-dos and reminders. For the aspirational among us, there’s even a separate section for goal-setting and tracking.Get the Panda Planner from Amazon for $20.977. Exercise equipment for working out at homeMaybe it’s because your gym is closed or maybe it’s because you made a resolution to finally get in shape. Regardless of your reason, the end of the year is the perfect time to stock up on home exercise equipment. While weights are still hard to come by, you can find them online at a few retailers. Other good options for at-home workouts include resistance bands or our experts’ number one yoga mat from Lululemon.8. The smart speaker that keeps selling outA smart speaker like our favorite—the 3rd Gen. Amazon Echo—can make life a lot easier in 2021, from controlling all of your smart devices to updating you on the latest news and weather forecast. If you’ve been trying to get your hands on the Echo, however, you know it’s been near impossible the last few months. Good news, though: You can currently get it at Lowe’s or pre-order it on Amazon for delivery in early February.9. A quality pair of snow bootsJust like snow shovels, good snow boots are essential for surviving the wet, slushy winter months that lie ahead. While there are plenty of options out there, some of the most popular ones include the Ugg Adirondack III Waterproof Boot for women (which our Shopping Director swears by!) and the Timberland White Ledge Waterproof Boot for men, which have over 26,000 (!!) rave reviews.10. The best wireless earbuds: AirPods ProStill haven’t jumped on the AirPods bandwagon? Consider 2021—or rather, the end of 2020—the perfect time to get a pair. One of the hottest purchases of the year, our experts found the AirPods Pro to be some of the the best wireless earbuds we’ve ever tested thanks to their sound quality, comfortable fit, and noise cancellation.Get the Apple AirPods Pro from Amazon for $199The product experts at Reviewed have all your shopping needs covered.
