Comfortable, long-lasting compression socks

cdn.shopify (10)

Gift a pair of Women’s Compression Socks, starting at $24

Bombas make some of our all-time favorite socks; they’re soft and designed for next-level support, but they also last forever. We’d recommend any pairs from them, but compression socks may be especially thoughtful if your grandmother has ever mentioned swelling or achy legs.

A subscription to the biggest book club in the country

book of the month $44.99

Gift a 3-Month Book of the Month subscription, $49.99

Book of the Month offers five new book choices a month, and they’re always top-quality picks. The biggest struggle of being a Book of the Month member is deciding which one to read.

A pair of new glasses

zenni $25

Gift a Zenni Gift Card, from $25

Give her a gift card from this affordable and stylish glasses brand so she can pick out a new pair of frames for herself. Frames start at less than $10, and they’ll be on their way straight to her front door after she enters her prescription information online.

91BTedEJLtL._SL1500_

Gift the Purple Back Cushion, $39

Purple Cushions feature the same Hyper-Elastic Polymer material used in its supportive, adaptive mattresses, so she can be comfortable whether sitting in a car, plane, or stadium. Unlike other pillows that might simply absorb weight, this one provides active support.

Thick and warm socks

gifts for grandma 7

Gift the United by Blue Ultimate Bison Sock, $38

United by Blue makes some of the most comfortable and warmest socks we’ve ever worn. They’re made of merino wool, bison down, and nylon, and have reinforced heel and toe areas. We’re also big fans of Bombas socks

A luxurious yet affordable candle

otherland

Gift an Otherland Candle, $36

The same candle from a designer brand might cost twice as much, but we all know Grandma would never want you spending that much on a single candle. Otherland provides a reasonably priced alternative that’s still sophisticated and formulated with clean ingredients. Choose from soothing scents like rosebud, peony blossom, and pear water.

A comfortable slip-on shoe

allbirds $95

Gift the Allbirds Wool Lounger, $95

The soft, cushioned, and lightweight Loungers are made for the grandma who’s always on her feet and needs to be comfortable.

A versatile, thoughtfully designed bag

lo and sons $118

Gift the Lo & Sons Catalina Deluxe Tote, from $102.50

The canvas bag has a bunch of different organizational features, including a bottom pocket just for shoes and an expandable main compartment. Lo & Sons also offers deep discounts on all bags right now, so you can get this one for over 50% off. 

A subscription-free way to watch live TV

fire tv recast 2018

Gift the Fire TV Recast DVR, $229.99

So you’ve convinced her to cut the cord, but she might still miss watching her favorite daytime shows as they happen. Amazon’s Fire TV Recast works with an HD antenna and Fire TV device to bring her live shows and events without the commitment of monthly fees.

Prints of your favorite moments together and a pretty stand to display them

Artifact Uprising
Prints of loved ones on a classy easel make for a simple and special gift.

Gift the Artifact Uprising Brass Easel & Prints, $55

The sleek brass display is a little different from the usual photo frame, and it weathers nicely over time. The set includes 12 prints printed on weighty, matte paper.

A pure silk sleep mask to help her fall asleep and stay asleep

slip sleep mask

Gift the Slip “Slipsilk” Pure Silk Sleep Mask, $50

Slip’s 100% pure Mulberry silk sleep mask is lightweight, super soft, and makes something as simple as going to bed feel luxurious. 

A warm burst of pink and red flowers

gifts for grandma 6

Gift the Bouqs Co. Strength Bouquet, from $54

If all else fails, a flower bouquet is a gift that stands the test of time. Make sure to place your order of these assorted tulips soon to ensure availability and timely delivery.

A subtle, personal necklace

gifts for grandma 5

Gift the Mini Gold Letter Charm Pendant, $250

No need to get excessive or gimmicky with the Grandma gear — pretty and simple convey thoughtfulness even better, in our opinion. 

A Fitbit fitness tracker

fitbit $99.95

Gift the Fitbit Inspire 2, $77.99

This tracker is more affordable than Fitbit’s other models, but still gives her all the necessary info to keep tabs on her fitness and health. She can monitor her calorie burn, heart rate, sleep patterns, walking and biking activity, and other important stats.

A lottery ticket that gives back

lotto love $20

Gift the Lotto Love Variety Pack, $20

LottoLove turns playing the lottery into a charitable act: When you buy a card, LottoLove donates to charities that help people receive clean water, solar light, nutritious meals, and literacy tools. She’ll scratch off the stickers to find out which cause she has supported.

A better-designed spatula

gir $39.95

Gift the GIR Ultimate Spatula, $7.95

GIR’s stronger, more flexible, and heat-resistant spatulas make Grandma’s baking prep a breeze (which means you won’t have to wait as long for her famous cookies to be ready).

A journal to record her life story

my life story $30

Gift the “My Life Story – So Far” Journal, $30

You know that Grandma has an arsenal of entertaining stories and life wisdom up her sleeve. The best way to ensure they’re preserved and passed on to future generations is this journal that contains prompts ranging from the specific (“TV shows I watched while in school”) to the nebulous (“Some thoughts on love and marriage”).

A handmade stoneware sewing station

uncommon goods $58

Gift the Uncommon Goods Sewing Station, $60

Plastic sewing supply storage boxes may work, but this sturdy clay sewing station will actually get her excited to sit down with her tools.

A meaningful bracelet

Gifts for grandma Etsy bracelet

Gift the Grandma Bracelet, $13.20

When it comes to grandparents, it can be difficult to find gifts that provide meaning without feeling cheesy. This bracelet and its message strike this delicate balance well, and she’ll be especially proud to wear it.

These cleverly designed rugs are machine washable so I never have to worry about spills – plus they’re incredibly affordable

When you buy through our links, Insider may earn an affiliate commission. Learn more.

ruggable main

  • Rugs are a great piece of home decor, but they can be difficult to maintain.
  • Ruggable’s polyester chenille rugs ($59.30+) are affordable, attractive, and easy to clean.
  • I used and washed a Ruggable rug in my own apartment, and the process went seamlessly.

Table of Contents: Masthead StickyLinear Aztec Black Rug (small)

Rugs are an essential part of home decor, providing the foundation upon which your furniture and other decor sit. However, they’re a huge pain to clean: you need to bring them outside and use a host of different tools and cleaners or possibly spend a lot of money letting a professional take care of them. You start to wonder whether their aesthetic appeal is worth the inconvenience of care and maintenance.

Related Article Module: The best places to buy area rugs in 2021

Before you decide to put off cleaning your rug for yet another week, you might want to take a look at rugs Ruggable. It makes two-piece rug and non-slip pad systems that are easy to assemble and maintain, and most importantly, machine-washable. After trying a Ruggable rug in my own apartment, I found that enjoying a stylish rug in my home can actually be simple, not to mention affordable.

Design options

After I measured out the size of rug I wanted, I scrolled through a variety of patterns and colors on Ruggable’s site and decided on one that matched my apartment style. There are intricate designs and geometric prints as well as to modern ones, so finding one that matches your aesthetic shouldn’t be too hard. There’s also a good range of styles: 3’x 5′, 2.5’x 7′, 5’x 7′, and 8’x 10′.

A 5’x 7′ rug set averages $130, which is on par with other affordable rugs you might find on Wayfair, but the clear differences are the unique two-piece system and machine-washable quality.

How Ruggable rugs work

The rug covers are made up of three layers – 100% woven polyester chenille top surface, a 100% polyurethane internal waterproof barrier in the middle, and a 100% polyester knit bottom surface.

The 1/8-inch thick rug cover will come with a rug pad. This nonslip pad is also 1/8-inch thick and features Ruggable‘s patented “Cling Effect Technology,” which is what keeps the rug cover and rug pad stuck together.

Once you unroll the cover and pad, which arrive together in a box, line them up on top of each other and attach the pieces. The rug cover’s underside will stick to the rug pad’s top surface, which has a texture and stickiness similar to Velcro. After the two pieces are attached, they won’t fall apart if you shake it out, and you’ll have to manually pull the layers apart.

ruggable rugs 1

Setup process

Carefully lining up the edges might take a little time the first time you do it, but overall it’s not too tricky. The complete process from taking the rug out of the box to fully assembling it took me all of 10 minutes.

The rugs are not extremely thick but provide enough cushion-y comfort without blocking door openings, and they’re easier to move and transport since you can fold up the rug cover.

Cleaning the rug

The real test came when it was time to wash it after a couple of weeks of regular foot traffic from my roommates and our cat. I removed the cover from the pad and threw the cover in the washing machine on the cold water setting, then dried it in the dryer on low heat (medium also works well, but don’t use high heat).

It was as easy and quick as washing a regular load of laundry, and the cover came out looking as good as new. Then, I just reattached it to the rug pad and the rug was ready to use again.

The rug pad is not machine-washable and should be spot treated. However, since the top of it rarely comes in contact with anything other than the rug cover, any time spent spot treating will likely be minimal.

The bottom line

Ruggable’s rugs are designed for people who lead understandably busy and messy lives. Most of us don’t live in the pristine settings captured by design magazines, but the convenience and style of a Ruggable rug got me one step closer to that dream.

  • Ice makers can replace your ice trays, make ice in minutes, and keep your cooler full all day.
  • The best ice maker overall is the NewAir Countertop Ice Maker.
  • This machine had the most size options and largest water tank of any that we tested.

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky

If you like to entertain or just want a faster alternative to filling and refilling plastic ice trays, consider a portable ice maker. Most ice makers can produce a handful of cubes in under 10 minutes, and the more powerful models can make upwards of 20 pounds in 24 hours. For comparison, it takes three to four hours to turn water into ice in the average freezer.

Ice makers may be classified as “portable,” but since they’re heavy and typically need to be kept upright and level, you shouldn’t move them around too much. The manuals for every ice maker we tested recommended leaving space between the ice maker and heat sources, like stoves or vents. The higher the ambient temperature, the longer ice will take to form.

Most ice makers make bullet ice, which is cylindrical with a rounded base and a hollow middle. Bullet ice starts to melt fairly quickly, and most ice machines do not have insulated baskets for long term storage, so if you’re running one during a party, you will have to periodically empty it out.

We tested five ice machines and spoke to Ken Ho, co-owner of cocktail creation and consulting company One Cocktail at a Time, about what sets a good ice maker apart from the competition. After our research and testing, we chose the three ice makers below as the best ones you can buy in 2021.

Here are the best ice makers of 2021

Our methodology

Two glasses of water with ice from two of the machines we tested

We put five ice makers through a series of tests to determine which ones performed consistently well. We chose ice makers that produced between 26 and 28 pounds of ice daily. We found this to be the market average.

Speed: Each ice maker we tested promised to make a certain amount of cubes in a certain amount of time, so we tested the accuracy of those claims.

Capacity: We measured the water reservoir capacity by filling it with a quart of water at a time until we reached the max line.

Ice quality: We noted if the ice came out broken or whole, and whether or not the ice cubes made on the same setting were similar in shape and size. 

If the machine had multiple size settings, we evaluated the sizes separately.

We also compared the melting speeds of ice produced by the ice makers and ice from traditional cube trays in two separate tests: one where the ice cubes were placed in glasses of water, and one where the ice cubes were left out. In general, ice from the machines melted slower than ice from the traditional trays.

Noise level: We evaluated if we could have a conversation at normal volume while each machine was running.

Ease of use: We noted how easy it was to lift the machines and keep them level, as well as how much effort it took to drain the machines. We also examined each machine’s interface, and judged them on simplicity and intelligibility.

The best ice maker overall

Our best overall ice maker, the NewAir Countertop Ice Maker in black, on the counter.

The NewAir Countertop Ice Maker‘s three quart water reservoir and three ice sizes are great if you like to entertain or prefer all your drinks chilled.

Pros: Three ice sizes, large water tank capacity, ice is evenly shaped across sizes

Cons: Bulky, small ice is on the thin side 

At three quarts, this ice maker’s water tank had the largest capacity out of all the machines we tested. After running two small cycles, one medium, and one large, there were still over two quarts left. Regardless of the size you select, each ice cycle produces nine pieces of ice and takes under 15 minutes to complete. This speed is standard among ice makers with one or two sizes, but I was impressed by the NewAir‘s consistent timing in all three sizes.

Draining the leftover water was easy because the NewAir‘s drainage port is conveniently located on its side near the bottom, as opposed to underneath the machine. If you shut off the machine mid-cycle, any ice formed will drop back into the water tank. 

The small ice started losing shape just from the heat of my hand; the medium and large ice cubes were more substantial. However, this was the case for all of the ice makers I tested.

Countertop Ice Maker (button)
The best budget ice maker

Our best budget ice maker, the Magic Chef Portable Ice Maker in white, on the counter.

With a small countertop footprint and two ice sizes, the Magic Chef Portable Ice Maker is perfect for small spaces and camping.

Pros: Can be used outdoors, runs quietly, small and large ice produced in under 10 minutes

Cons: Not easy to drain, white finish attracts dust

The Magic Chef doesn’t have many bells and whistles, but it delivers on its key promise: you will get nine pieces of small or large ice in 15 minutes or less. This is enough ice to fill an eight ounce glass. The ice came out fully formed and the cubes were identical in size and shape. The large ice cubes did not take much longer to form than the small ones, and I found that the Magic Chef actually over-delivered on its claim: both sizes were ready to use in under 10 minutes. The noise level was no higher than other machines, which is especially useful if you’re bringing the ice maker into a small space.

The drainage port is on the underside of the machine, so it requires some finagling to open it and place a vessel for catching the excess water underneath. I did notice that some hair and dust particles stuck to the machine and were super visible on the white exterior. The Magic Chef can be used outdoors, but as with all ice makers, the manufacturer recommends that you leave it in its final position for about an hour before using it.

27-Lb. Portable Countertop Ice Maker (button)
The best ice maker for nugget ice

Our pick for the best maker for nugget ice, the Opal Nugget Ice Maker, while making ice.

The Opal Nugget Ice Maker does one thing and does it well: it makes chewable nugget ice.

Pros: Runs quietly, one water tank is enough for an hour of ice production

Cons: Bulky, takes longer to produce enough ice to fill a glass

Nugget ice has its devoted fans, but there are few countertop nugget ice makers on the market. Unless you have an ice maker built into your refrigerator, making the perfect mint julep can feel impossible. Enter the Opal Nugget Ice Maker: it’s a portable machine that produces one pound of crushed ice in an hour. 

The Opal is about $200 more than our other picks, but that’s a pretty standard price for a nugget ice maker. The machine took about half an hour to produce enough nugget ice to fill a 12 ounce glass from top to bottom. This is not surprising, since nugget ice is small and condenses in glasses. After running the machine for an hour, you’ll have enough ice for two or three full glasses.

The ice pieces are frozen solid and evenly shaped. The interface is simple and the machine is sleek; though it takes up over a foot of counter space, it is not an eyesore. 

Part of the machine’s bulk can be attributed to a side water tank, which enables you to triple the Opal‘s water capacity and continuously make ice for several hours in a row. It was easy to connect with a clearly labeled tube in the back of the machine.

Opal Nugget Ice Maker (button)
What else we tested

Frigidaire Portable Compact Maker: This ice maker is almost identical to the Magic Chef. It was relatively quiet and made nine cubes in nine minutes. However, it only makes one size of ice and it cannot be used outdoors, which is why it lost out on a top spot.

Luma Comfort Clear Ice Maker: This was the only machine that produced traditional cube shaped ice and claimed to make clear ice. While the ice was noticeably less cloudy, there were a few other flaws that kept this ice maker from being a top pick. The ice cubes froze into a solid rectangle and were not easily broken apart. Additionally, the small cubes had divots in the middle, which increased the surface area and therefore led to faster melting.

What we look forward to testing

Igloo Portable Ice Maker: This machine is similar to the bullet ice makers we tested, and its selling points are a three quart water tank and a small countertop footprint. Our current top pick has a three quart tank, but takes up more space. 

Igloo Flip-up Door Portable Crushed Ice Maker: This is more multi-purpose ice maker than the others we tested; it produces crushed ice and two sizes of bullet ice, and dispenses water. We are curious to see if it performs all of those tasks equally well.

FAQs

Semi-clear ice cubes frozen together from the Luma Comfort Clear Ice Maker.

How do you clean your ice maker?

All ice makers have specific cleaning instructions in their manuals, and the process was largely the same for the five machines we tested. Dilute basic detergent with room temperature water and wash the inside of the water tank and ice basket with a soft cloth.


How does an ice maker work?

Portable ice makers use the same mechanical freezing cycle as refrigerators and freezers, just on a smaller scale. Because they’re not connected to a water line, you have to fill up the ice maker’s water reservoir to make the ice. Unlike a chest freezer, a high ambient temperature can significantly slow down the speed of a portable ice maker.


Why does bullet ice melt faster than cubes or spheres?

Melting speed is determined by the surface area to volume ratio. Large ice spheres melt slower than traditional ice cubes because spheres have a lower ratio. Bullet ice, with its hollow center, has a higher ratio and therefore melts faster. 

“The two main purposes of ice are to chill the cocktail and to dilute it. With that in mind, depending on how you build a cocktail and how you like to enjoy it, ice plays different roles,” said Ho. Fast-melting ice results in a diluted but colder drink, while slow-melting ice keeps a drink concentrated but not as cold.

The 9 best dehumidifiers in 2021

When you buy through our links, Insider may earn an affiliate commission. Learn more.

  • Dehumidifiers help remove excess moisture from the air to prevent mold and remove allergens.
  • The best dehumidifiers are from Frigidaire, HomeLabs, and Honeywell.
  • We also include budget-friendly, portable, and small-space options.

Table of Contents: Masthead Sticky

The purpose of a dehumidifier is to remove excess humidity from the air, keeping your room dry and helping prevent mold and mildew growth.

You might need a dehumidifier if:

  • Your room feels stuffy and humid
  • You see mold and mildew, and the area smells musty
  • There are wet spots or condensation on the windows and walls
  • You or your fellow inhabitants experience upper respiratory problems like sneezing and coughing

You can also use a hygrometer to directly measure humidity levels in your house. “We recommend keeping the relative humidity in your home between 30-50%. High humidity can increase ground-ozone levels, dust mites, and mold – all of which can be allergy or asthma trigger[s],” said Kenneth Mendez, president and CEO of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA).

We found the best dehumidifiers for rooms of various sizes and different needs. See the FAQs section for information on how to shop for a dehumidifier, how to clean your unit, and more.

Here are the best dehumidifiers of 2021

Our methodology

white homelabs dehumidifier on the ground next to a bicycle

In our first major rewrite of this guide, we consulted allergy, skincare, and HVAC experts to learn more about how a dehumidifier can help your health and what features to look for. We spoke to Kenneth Mendez, president and CEO of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA); John McKeon, CEO and founder of Allergy Standards Limited (ASL); Jeanine Downie, MD, FAAD, Director of Image Dermatology PC; and a spokesperson for The Home Depot

Using their insights, along with our own research and knowledge of the space, we picked a few dehumidifier options per category. Down the line, we plan to personally test these dehumidifiers to choose one best pick per category.

The best dehumidifiers overall

“For smaller spaces or rental units, I recommend including portable dehumidifiers to keep the space feeling fresh,” said a spokesperson for The Home Depot. Portable dehumidifiers are also great for small closets, cabinets, traveling, and gym bags.

FAQs

Why do you need a dehumidifier? 

A dehumidifier helps maintain the optimal level of humidity in your room so it’s not too humid. It reduces the growth and incidence of mold, mildew, and dust mites.


Dehumidifier vs. humidifier: what’s the difference and which do you need? 

A dehumidifier removes moisture from the air, while a humidifier adds moisture to the air. 

If your room feels stuffy and you see condensation or mold, you need a dehumidifier. It’s commonly used in bathrooms, basements, closets, boats, and RVs, but you can use it anywhere else in the house, too. 

If your room feels dry and your skin is irritated, you need a humidifier. We tested the best humidifiers here.


What to consider when buying a dehumidifier 

Dampness level: Dehumidifiers come in different sizes depending on how much moisture they can remove in 24 hours. Here’s what size to buy based on how humid your room is:

Dampness level Characteristics Dehumidifier size Room size
Moderately damp Musty aroma in the area during humid weather 25-39 pint capacity Small (closets, small bathrooms)
Extremely damp Always damp in the area regardless of season 40-59 pint capacity Medium (bedrooms, small basements, large closets)
Wet Visible condensation on ceilings and walls 60+ pint capacity Large (large basements)

How the unit removes moisture: It will either have a built-in pump or a direct drain. “A dehumidifier with a built-in pump allows you to run the drain hose up to a window, sink or elevated drain. A unit with a direct drain will funnel the water directly into a sink or basement drain,” said a spokesperson from The Home Depot. 

Energy performance: To get maximum efficiency out of a unit, look for those that are Energy Star-certified.

Automatic or useful features: Look for a unit with an adjustable humidistat, which will automatically turn your unit on and off to maintain the preset humidity level. Other useful features, according to The Home Depot, include:

  • Automatic shutoff: Turns your unit off once the tank is full 
  • Digital display: Shows the relative humidity level and other settings
  • Filter sensor/indicator: Tells you when it’s time to replace the filter
  • Programmable timer: Lets you run the unit only at certain times of the day
  • Auto-defrost: Keeps your unit from freezing in cold temperatures 

It’s also worth pointing out that many AC units have built-in dehumidifiers. If your AC unit is in your desired room, check first to see if it has a dehumidifier and whether it works well. We tested the best air conditioners here.


How does a dehumidifier work? 

A dehumidifier works by blowing moist air over coolant-filled coils, causing the moisture to condense into water droplets. The condensation then drips from the coils into a receptacle. The collected water is directly drained out or pumped into another area like a sink, depending on the unit you have.


Is a dehumidifier good for your skin?

“Dehumidifiers decrease the incidence of dry skin,” said Jeanine Downie, MD, FAAD, Director of Image Dermatology PC. They also reduce irritation due to allergens like dust mites and mold. If your dehumidifier removes too much humidity from the air, however, it may dry out your skin. 

“It’s important to note that if the humidity starts to drop below 30% it can have a negative impact on health, including drying out of the eyes and mucous membranes,” said McKeon. “Very dry air can also result in dry skin, worsening of eczema, and irritation of the airways.” You should continue to monitor humidity levels and how your skin feels as you use your dehumidifier.


How do you clean a dehumidifier? 

There are two parts to focus your attention on: the air filter and the tank. Clean the air filter under your faucet often (once a week). Wipe down and dry out the tank after every use to reduce mold and mildew growth within your dehumidifier.
