Chances are, your feelings about 2020 lie somewhere between “no comment” and “don’t let the door hit you.” Suffice it to say, most of us are pretty jazzed to consign 2020 to the history books and dive into the new year ahead. Sure, 2021 may still hold some uncertainty — but now that we’ve hopefully found our footing, the time feels right to look ahead, set some positive goals, and embrace the new possibilities this time of year offers.
Whether you’re aiming to finally figure out a home workout you love, refresh your style (because woman cannot live by WFH sweats alone), sleep better, or just find everyday moments worth celebrating, read on for 27 buys that’ll help get you where you want to go this year — including the Bose audio accessories that help you do it all.
Get Your Best Sleep Ever
A good night’s rest makes you feel like a whole new human, so it’s worth investing in products that solve for the most common sleep-busters: Smart light bulbs you can program to give a calming rosy glow or dim on schedule, a blue light-blocking shield for your phone, and a fluffy, cloud-like comforter that keeps you cozy without overheating. To take it to the next level, try Bose Sleepbuds II. These tiny, noise-masking earbuds integrate with the Bose Sleep App to deliver a library of soothing sounds to help you relax, fall asleep faster, and sleep deeper. Who knows, you might become that person who bounds out of bed in the morning.

Start (Or Stick To) An Exercise Routine
If you’re one of those high achievers who got super-into fitness in 2020, bless your heart and keep it up. On the other hand, if your fitness tracking apps are sending you “uh, are you ok?” texts, take heart — it’s never too late to start up a routine that gets you moving and helps you remember what endorphins feel like. Colorful weight sets, exercise bands, and childhood favorites like a jump rope make at-home fitness feel fun, and not dutiful. Or treat yourself to a new workout ‘fit to inspire your next outdoor run or hike.

Refresh Your Style
Is it the deepest resolution ever? Not really — but after a year of leggings, sweats, and, uh, those same leggings again, zhushing up your style with a cute new piece or two feels like an overdue investment in you. What to look for now? Romantic (but still comfy) tops that make your WFH ‘fits feel more special, Chelsea boots with just the right amount of heft, an investment leather bucket bag in moody slate blue, and a pair of Bose Frames sunglasses that have a sleek, low-key retro look, and offer Bluetooth-enabled open-ear audio: A new way of playing music that’s immersive, but still lets you hear your surroundings.

Some ideas for upgrading your daily experience: a wellness journal to hold your musings and encourage good habits. A deck of colorful cards to help you cultivate mindfulness. A monthly fresh flower subscription or an indulgent face oil, because #selfcare. A mega-soft beanie, because nothing says “I’m worth it” like cashmere. A pair of next-level, open-ear headphones whose precision-engineered sound is like nothing you’ve heard before — and will make your next walk around the block to your favorite song feel downright epic.
