Mattress

Tuft & Needle Queen Mattress,via amazon.com

No, one mattress won’t last your entire life—they should be replaced every seven years or so, according to the Better Sleep Council—but considering you spend one-third of your life in your bed, shouldn’t that time be spent on a luxurious mattress instead of one that makes your back ache? In that case, you’ll want to choose the mattress with more five-star Amazon reviews than any other and that comes with a ten-year warranty: Tuft & Needle. You’ll also get a 100-night trial to ensure your investment is the right fit, which shouldn’t be a problem thanks to its pressure-relief foam, support layer, and cooling gel so you sleep cool and comfy.

Hair dryer

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer, Iron/Fuchsiavia amazon.com

Think a drugstore hair dryer is going to give you the luscious locks you desire? Unfortunately, it will probably give you heat damage, be incredibly cumbersome and heavy to hold, take forever to dry your mane, and overheat and break with no warning. Instead, upgrade to the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer, which is engineered to protect your hair from heat damage and maintain natural shine. The powerful digital motor, located in the handle for better balance, keeps the device lighter than a traditional dryer. It comes with multiple magnetic styling attachments, including a diffuser, so you don’t have to purchase anything separately. You’ll wonder how you ever made do with a cheap and unreliable version before. Find out some things you should always buy on Amazon.

Backpack or briefcase

Filson Journeyman Backpack - Tanvia amazon.com

Whether you commute to work on public transportation or tend to keep everything but the kitchen sink in your work bag, you’ll need a trusty briefcase or backpack to do the heavy lifting throughout your career. The problem is, most products that look stylish and professional don’t hold up to wear and tear, not to mention weather. Enter the Filson line of ultra-durable bags, including the Journeyman backpack and the 24-Hour Tin Cloth Briefcase (which one you choose depends on your style preference). The backpack is made of water-repellent, abrasion-resistant material, and the tear-proof moleskin-lined shoulder straps literally take the load off your back. A padded sleeve holds laptops and tablets up to 16 inches and a storm flap over the zipper increases water resistance. Both products are tough as nails, thanks to the iconic fabric, a tightly woven canvas duck fabric that’s saturated with a mixture of liquified paraffin wax and oil under heat and high pressure, forcing the wax into the core of the all-natural cotton fibers—it resists tears, punctures, water, wind, and anything else that might get in your way.
