Next-Level Coffee and Espresso

Nespresso capsules come in a wide range of boldness and flavor.

An Intelligent Robot Vacuum
It’s a proven fact that fewer household chores equal wedded bliss. The Roomba i3 EVO robot vacuum is smarter than ever, learning and mapping your home room-by-room so it can clean the space you want when you want.
Powered by iRobot OS, it stays a step ahead of everyday messes by learning your patterns ― and even suggesting cleaning schedules.
Compatible with both Google Assistant and Alexa, the Roomba allows you to direct your robot to messes right when they happen. It even returns to its base when the bin is full, automatically empties and resumes cleaning. You don’t even have to think about emptying the bin for months at a time.
Head to Best Buy to get the Roomba i3EVO for $299.
Cantaria (“stonework” in Portuguese) is the aptly named, masterfully created dinnerware line from Skyros Designs. The organic shape and hammered texture of Skyros Cantaria dinnerware offers both a traditional and sophisticated look.
The line is crafted to mix and match, allowing you to play with colors and textures to create your own custom tablescape. The 13 color options complement each other when mixed.
Handcrafted in Portugal and made of ceramic stoneware, the entire line is freezer, oven, microwave and dishwasher safe.
