Long gone are the days where shopping on QVC meant turning on the TV for midnight kitchen runs, insomnia, or pure boredom. No, the QVC of 2021 is a one-stop shop where, thankfully for everyone, shopping with the famed network means clicking into the website instead of calling in to make a purchase.

1. The video game console everybody is fighting for
When COVID-19 entered all of our lives and we realized we were about to be spending way more time at home, people rushed to buy a Nintendo Switch system. Unfortunately, they were pretty hard to come by, but luckily QVC still has them in stock. Even better, not only do they have one of the most popular gaming consoles in recent history, they have the special edition “Animal Crossings” version on hand. Hours of family-fun game play are waiting with the switch system, and this limited-edition version comes with the eponymous game: “Animal Crossings: New Horizons.”
2. A perfect (faux) potted plant
You can seriously get it all on QVC—even faux plants. During the pandemic, many of us took to upgrading our homes, which is fair considering we’ve been spending so much time in them. Plants, whether you have a green thumb or not, have been a great way to make our personal spaces more comfortable, and even serve as has backgrounds for our endless Zoom calls. This 6-foot faux fiddle leaf tree is the perfect investment because—guess what—you can’t kill it!
3. The technology you need right now

Well, if you like to play games, read books, surf the web, Facetime your family, or have an ultra-portable mini-computer you can toss in your bag, then yes—yes you do. To make it easier for you to finally seal the deal, our friends at QVC have them ready to ship to you now. A top-performing tablet, this 10.9-inch iPad Air comes with Wi-Fi connectivity, 64 gigabytes of memory, a 12-megapixel camera, headphones, carrying case, and more.
4. Um, restaurant-quality meat?
This isn’t a drill: QVC sells meat—and good, Kansas City-style meat at that. If you’re a serious carnivore, don’t skip out on these 5-ounce bacon-wrapped fillet mignon steaks that are shipped in dry ice and arrive within two days of ordering. Vacuum sealed and ready to cook, “the flavors and texture are outstanding,” according to one QVC customer.
5. A pair of leggings from a Real Housewife of Beverly Hills’ clothing line
You don’t have to be married to Harry Hamlin to look like you do. His real-life wife, Lisa Rinna, sells her own line, the Lisa Rinna Collection, on QVC. And even if you’ve never seen an episode of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, who cares, these faux leather leggings will make you look like the star you are. Available in six colors and size 00 to 28, there’s truly a style for everyone.
6. This top-rated men’s shaver
QVC might have a reputation for catering to women, but there are plenty of products for men, too. This Philips Norelco 5000 series electric razor has everything needed to shave, including three shave heads, travel case, trimmer attachment, and an extra set of three shave heads.

Offered in five different colors, the supportive split back, soft leather, and relaxing cushion make this La-Z-Boy the ultimate place for your Netflix sessions.
10. A stationary spin bike that’s an investment in your fitness goals
“One of the best purchases that I have made for my health,” one QVC customer writes of this stationary bike, which will help you take your at-home workouts to the next level. The Echelon Smart Connect EX3 Bike has a 32-level magnetic flywheel and supports your iPad to power workouts, plus, we're big fans of the brand's bikes at Reviewed.

11. This TV that doubles as a piece of art
Why fret over the space on your wall when your TV can literally transform into a museum-quality piece of art. The Samsung Frame TV is one of the most unique TVs on the market, and this 32-inch version is no exception. With a magnetic bezel—the interchangeable “frame” around the TV—it looks like a gallery-quality piece hanging, and with the TV’s special technology, one click of button on the remote turns the TV in your favorite painting that’s truly like looking at the original.
12. An affordable, self-install security system
Video doorbells changed home security forever, and now you can get your own affordable version of Amazon's Ring system from QVC.

With motion sensors, motion tracking, night vision, and a 160-degree field of view, this camera system keeps your home and family protected, and might even record a hilarious moment outside your front door, too.
13. A no-touch thermometer you need for the pandemic and beyond
While the light at the end of the COVID-19 pandemic seems near, we all need to keep our guards up until the coronavirus is truly eliminated. One way we can do that is by making sure we don’t leave the house with a fever. And someday, when COVID-19 is a distant memory (whew!), having a reliable, touch-free thermometer will be for simply making sure that the kids aren’t faking it to skip school for the day.
14. The self-tanning drops people are obsessed with
When you can't go on a beach vacation, self-tanning products are the next best thing. Thanks to the Isle of Paradise self-tanning drops and misting water, getting a radiant glow has never been easier. While self-tanning products are very dependent on your skin tone, one QVC reviewer wrote, “It smells pleasant, [dries] quickly, and the color is beyond awesome!” And, to make it the full package, this set comes with a special mitt to make sure the product goes on smooth and even.”

Make your favorite wings, fries, and more (a 20-recipe guide is included) with this handy system that will change your relationship with cooking for the better.
