Love it or hate it, Amazon is a treasure trove of affordable, practical, and surprisingly elevated home finds. From organization and storage to decor, linens, and even furniture, the e-commerce giant is quickly becoming a go-to for all things home (and you can’t beat the Prime shipping, of course).

Unsurprisingly, Havenly designers have racked up more than a few Amazon home finds in their own order history — all of which are top-rated, personally vetted, and under $30. From the handy (rug tape, anyone?) to the decorative (budget-friendly vases and candle holders, coming right up), the following gems all have an interior designers’ seal of approval.

Ahead, shop 25 under-$30 Amazon home finds our design team actually uses, courtesy of Havenly’s own Kelsey Fischer, Heather Goerzen, Toussaint Derby, Brady Burke, and Kasee Smith.
