From linen sheets to piglets, here’s what made our lives better in 2021.

Every year, BuzzFeed News rounds up the different things we tried — actually tried ourselves, with our own money, on our own time, tested on our own faces, hair, pets, children, and muscles and love enough to recommend to someone else. From fancy jams to cheap used furniture auction sites to a giant beanbag chair to a Substack newsletter about salad to a dry cleaner on TikTok, we tried them and we loved them all.
