Detroit Mom’s Favorite Online Purchases

I am the kind of person that still loves endlessly browsing the aisles of Target for items that my husband would say I definitely don’t need. But with the world of Amazon and online shopping at my fingertips (especially on days where I am just lounging at home while the kids play), it is so convenient to make online purchases from the comfort of my own home, and I love it!

Our team is sharing some of their recent favorite online purchases–the things they simply HAD to buy after seeing them online or hearing about them. Sometimes it’s just so easy to “add to cart” while sitting on the couch, enjoying your coffee! But it’s important to know what you’re buying is going to be worth it.

If you’re looking for something to gift for an upcoming birthday (or Mother’s Day!) or simply are curious about what everyone else has in their online shopping carts these days, you’ll want to keep reading.

Here are some of our favorite online purchases:

Amanda O.

Book of the Month
I received this as a gift recently and have been loving it! I’ve really liked the selection choices and the ease of it. It’s fun to get a delivery and I often pass them around to a group of friends after reading each book.

Ashley H.

Plum Plump Hyaluroic Acid Moisturizer
As someone who is getting close to 40 and skin conscious, I’m willing to try just about any moisturizer that gets a little hype around it. I recently started using Glow Recipe’s Plum Plump Hyaluronic Acid Moisturizer after it went viral, and absolutely love it. It’s lightweight, a great balance of serum and cream, and immediately makes me feel refreshed. Full disclosure: I would recommend for someone with normal to combo skin, but if you have really dry skin, I’d probably skip.

Thistle and Spire Lingerie
Thistle and Spire immediately caught my eye as I was scrolling through my social media feed. Their designs are bold and their marketing is inclusive. I loved the upgrade to my lingerie drawer!

Jamie F.

Neck and Shoulder Relaxer
I saw this on Instagram, shortly after complaining to my husband about my neck pain. CREEPY! LOL! I bought it, and OH MY GOD. My neck AND back feel SO MUCH BETTER! If you work on a computer all day like me, this is NEEDED. Worth every penny!

Jillian L.

Painless Permanant Light Hair Removal Device
Keeping up with the kids, my marriage, meal planning, sports, and everything in between leaves me very little time for self-care, let alone time to pluck my pesky chin hairs. We all have unwanted facial hair, but my chin hairs are the worst. Since purchasing this time-saver and spending a few quick minutes a day, over the course of a few weeks those demon hairs have disappeared! I only have to revisit with my problem areas with five-minute treatment every four to six weeks.

Kailyn B.

Stress Manatee
I recently saw fidget spinners and clench toys for getting older adults through the day and thought of the benefits I could get. So is searched the same but in my favorite animal. This thing holds a grip and is good for working out your hands at your desk!

Lauren D.

Simple Modern 40oz Tumbler with Handle and Straw Lid
As if I needed another water bottle, but these really do live up to the hype. I love its large size but that it still fits in a standard car cup holder.

Lindsay G.

Serve Chilled Rose Hydrating Eye Gels
I don’t buy much for myself (lol) but I started buying these and I’m blown away!! Feels so good to pamper myself and they actually work. I get puffy tired eyes a lot these days, and I’ve always had issues with dark circles. These babies are miracle workers.

Paige M.

Essential Oil Diffuser with Remote
I haven’t used this as a diffuser yet, but I do use it as a bedside humidifier, and I love it! I bought it when my son was a newborn and it helped add humidity to the air, and the nightlight feature was perfect since I was constantly awake checking on him in his mini crib next to me. It even comes with a remote to set timers, change the light colors, etc!

Label Maker Machine
I LOVE this label maker! It is so convenient and super cute. You simply download an app to your phone, design your label, connect it to the machine via Bluetooth, and within seconds you have a super cute label. There are numerous fonts, borders, and icons to choose from. You can even upload your own pics!

Sleep Headphones Headband
I recently got these headphones off of Amazon and I absolutely love them! I listen to deep sleep meditation on Spotify when I fall asleep and these headphones are comfortable to sleep in, especially since I am a side sleeper.

Vaibhavi Y.

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré Face Cream & Makeup Primer
I usually get makeup/skincare products on recommendations by beauty influencers. This one has lot of positive reviews and can be used as a moisturizer, cleanser, and makeup base.

Lip Liner Pencil
When I’m wearing lipstick, I like to define my lips with liner and this one is great!

Rangoli Mandala Floor Puzzle
I was influenced to buy this rangoli puzzle around Diwali because my son is into puzzles. It was a perfect Diwali themed activity for him, and easy Diwali decor for my home (without any mess). A total win!

Sensory Bin Tools with Wooden Box
For kid’s sensory activities, this was a great kit to scoop up fillers, add small things, and to make play interesting. My son played a lot with these.

Spice Containers with Labels
I was looking for jars for my spices with shaker lids and labels. This one is perfect since it is a great size for my spice drawer and the printed labels have a variety of spices mentioned plus blank labels if needed. Love it!

Sulwhasoo Gentle Cleansing Oil
Personally, I love this cleansing oil since it removes all makeup without too much scrubbing and without additional cotton/wipes. Also, it moisturizes the skin.

Whether you are looking for a gift for someone special, or hoping to spoil yourself (because duh, you deserve it!), I hope that you are able to find something you also love from this list!
