Sign up to get a list of our favorite things to watch, read, eat and buy in your inbox every Monday. 

Oh and check out our holiday gift shop. We curated about 350 of our fave things, for everyone on your list. And most are under $75.  

This week's picks coming in 3,2,1… 

1. 13 sweet gifts that say ‘I’m thankful for you.’

This Thanksgiving, tell grandma you're grateful she learned how to use Zoom. And for everyone else you want to express your gratitude for, this list has delicious treats, cute cards, and colorful flowers to send to someone special. Hashtag blessed. 

2. The best documentaries of all time.

We don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to say that these 30 films will change your life. Or at least teach you a thing or two. Get your tissues ready.

3. Recipes for avocado lovers.

Do it for the gram. Or for a happy stomach. Either way, you avocadon’t want to miss out.

4. 15 genius products that’ll hack everyday life.

Aka, things that’ll save you time and money. And make life a bit easier. We’ve got patches that’ll heal pimples, a boot brush to get out scuff marks, and a detergent cup holder to end spills. Phew.

5. How to make Thanksgiving dinner for two.

Just because your RSVP list is small, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get all your favorite staples. Mashed potato heaven here you come. 

6. All your fave makeup...for less. 

Including Tarte’s best-selling Shape Tape Concealer that covers dark circles and blurs fine lines. Oh, and their products make excellent gifts for your BFF, too. Skimm’rs get $10 off a purchase over $50 with code SKIMM10. Add to cart.*

7. The biggest Airbnb travel trends for next year.

It’s never too early to start manifesting things for 2021.  

8. Comfy jeans that hug in alllll the right places. 

This brand’s high-rise skinny jeans are made with super soft, stretchy fabric. So you can WFH in real pants...but still feel like you’re wearing leggings. Btw, Skimm’rs get free shipping, exchanges, and returns. Get dressed again.*

9. 13 ways to increase your endorphins.

Because, as you might have heard before...endorphins make you happy, and happy people don’t…yeah, yeah, yeah, you know the rest. 

10. A podcast for when you’re hungry. 

Which…is always, if you’re us. “The Sporkful” has amazing guests (hi Samin Nosrat and David Chang) and episodes devoted to topics like seltzer and the reckoning at Bon Appétit. Need we say more? 

11. 5 mindful habits that’ll lead to a minimalist home.

The bad news: you’re going to have to to say goodbye to the “I’ll clean that up tomorrow” lifestyle. The good news: your kitchen counters will be spotless. 

12. How to find the perfect Thanksgiving vacation rental. 

Because flying across the country to see your crazy uncle for one big meal might not be your best bet this year. So if you can stay local and want to do a safe staycation, here's where to start

13. 7 shower mistakes that are ruining your skin, according to dermatologists.

In today’s lesson at beauty school, we’re talking about why we will never use a loofah ever again. Class dismissed. 

14. And finally, three totally random things that made us happy:

This Friendsgiving sweatshirt, some pie crust cutters, and these bow scrunchies
