The Most Wanted Items — According To You

We've got 2020 vision on the impending New Year; it's looking back at 2019 where things get a little nearsighted. But don't strain your eyes trying to relive the past 365 days, because our Shopping team editors already cataloged a highlight reel of hits for you — including the most wanted goods straight out of your very own virtual carts.

From major sale events to viral trends, gift guides, and our Tried & True test series: we're talking thousands of hyped-up black leggings, a new streaming service that took our inner child by storm, irresistible beauty loot, savage traveler-approved plane gear, an affordable memory foam pillow that just. won't. quit. and so much more.

Join us ahead as we recap and reap the 29 bestselling fruits of the most major shopping moments in 2019.

Amazon Orolay Jacket

The infamous viral-puffer jacket — after gracing the ranks of everything from our Amazon hidden gems to Prime Day sale features and flashy seasonal upgrades, its OG iteration is still selling strong as a 2019 most wanted essential till the bitter, cold end.

Memory Foam Cooling Pillow

The memory-foam pillow heard round the world! This bedding essential wasn't just a top home buy from the past year, it more impressively clocked in as a most wanted purchase cross-category — beating out fashion to beauty and tech in one of the biggest sale events of the year. We're guessing it has something to do with the rave customer ratings and sweetly discounted price point...
