New year, new you—or new things, if you're as obsessed with products as we are. After all, there's no better time to say "out with the old and in with the new" than January 1st. To help you ring in the new decade in style, we've rounded up 10 of the trendiest products for 2020, from our favorite smart speaker to the ever-popular AirPods.
1. The trendiest kitchen appliance
The Instant Pot craze likely isn't going away anytime soon—and we understand why. When we tested some of the top multi-cookers, we instantly (pun intended!) fell in love with the Instant Pot Ultra. It has 10 different cook settings from saute to slow cook to pressure cook and you can even follow along as your food cooks with the display's progress graph so you never have to guess when dinner will be ready.
2. The best smartwatch
You can't mention popular products without mentioning the cult-favorite Apple Watch. We agree that it's the number one smartwatch on the market right now because it performs every—and we do mean every—task better than any other watch. From making phone calls to navigating via GPS to listening to music, the Apple Watch has a wide range of capabilities and is super durable so it will last for years to come.
3. This expert-approved coffee maker
According to Pinterest, coffee stations are one of the biggest home trends of 2020. That means you'll need a high-quality (and stylish!) coffee maker like the Moccamaster. We dubbed it the best one you can buy because it brewed the most flavorful cup of joe of all the machines we tested. Even better, it did it quickly and efficiently so you can use it on busy weekday mornings.
4. This smart speaker to make life easier
Whether you want to know what the traffic is like on your daily commute, find a recipe for dinner, or keep track of your to-do list, Alexa can help you with all of that and more. If you want to upgrade your home with a smart speaker, we recommend the 3rd Generation Amazon Echo. Its sound quality is unmatched and it even has far-field voice recognition so you can talk to Alexa from any room in your house.
5. These iconic earbuds
When we first chose AirPods as the number one wireless earbuds, we had no idea that they could get even better. Until the AirPods Pro came out. Our editor who tried them for himself raves that the new pair is hands down the best earbuds Apple has ever made, thanks to their amazing sound quality (yes, they even have noise cancellation), comfortable fit, and long battery life.
6. This top-rated essential oil diffuser
Essential oil diffusers are like a candle's cooler cousin. They smell just as good but last way longer and are a perfect way to cozy up your home. Of all the ones out there, we like the InnoGear diffuser the best because it has such a large capacity that it can run for 11 hours straight. Plus, it has locking lid so you can carry it from room to room and it's easy to swap out your oils for the scents of your choice.
7. The coziest weighted blanket you can buy
If there's one thing we all could use a little more of in the new year, it's sleep. And one thing that can help you catch a few extra Z's? A weighted blanket, like this one from Gravity. It's our experts' top pick because it provides just the right amount of pressure (not too heavy, not too light) and has a velvety exterior that you can't help but snuggle up with.
8. The number one Kindle
The last decade brought us the Kindle and we are forever grateful. Of all the models out there, we love the Paperwhite the most for 2020. It has double the storage space of past Kindles (there's room for all of your favorite reads and audio books!) and has 24 different levels of illumination that make for the best and brightest display. Bonus: It's even waterproof so you don't have to worry about errant splashes or spills.
9. This popular meal kit delivery service
Work smarter not harder. That's our motto when it comes to mealtime in 2020, which is why meal kit delivery services are on the rise. We recommend Home Chef in particular because it delivers the highest-quality, freshest ingredients right to your doorstep along with easy-to-follow recipes. A.k.a. you won't have to step foot in a crowded grocery store or even leave your home to whip up a delicious dinner.
10. This must-have for your TV
More and more people cutting the cord = more and more people relying on streaming devices. Like our favorite, the Roku Ultra. It offers all of the major services (like Netflix, Hulu, and even Apple TV) and is compatible with 4K and HDR so you'll get the best streaming experience the next time you want to watch old Friends reruns or the latest season of Stranger Things.
