The Best Wellness Products of 2021, According to You – Bon Appetit
Here’s something that isn’t that surprising: Bon Appétit readers drank a lot of coffee in 2021 (these coffee subscriptions helped you stay caffeinated). Something that’s a little more surprising? In addition to air fryers and Dutch ovens, your favorite kitchen accessories this year were kind-of-ugly slippers.
I love how end-of-year findings perfectly encapsulate the past 12 months. And after delving into BA’s top wellness products of 2021, I realize that a lot of you prioritized comfort (those ugly-but-cute kitchen slides), new hobbies (like growing your own herbs indoors), and nostalgia (by sipping the beverage your mom used to make). If you’re looking for a home addition or putting together a care package (even and especially for yourself) that maximizes coziness and health, these are the products everyone already loves.
I’ll always remember 2021 as the year we blossomed from plant noobs to mid- and top-level gardeners, the year our fiddle-leaf figs and majesty palms went from frail and struggling to lush and thriving. For this, we have a lot of people and things to thank, like the expert greenthumbs on Instagram who offered gardening advice and this adorable LED light that brought our plant babies back to life.

While some of you spent your time nourishing your plant children back to life, the rest of you focused on cultivating plants you could eat. You got your hands on the compact, super-sleek AeroGarden Sprout, an indoor garden system for growing everything from hearty greens to hot peppers.
Our readers love some good ol’ kitchen footwear. In 2019, you favored these leather clogs. In 2020, you moved on to rubber clogs. And this year, you fell in love with OOFOS foam slippers. These plush, comfy, and machine-washable slides help improve balance and posture and create a slight rocking motion as you walk. They also have a grandma aesthetic, which I hear is in right now.
I might love garlicky fried rice, but I’m not a fan of its lingering aroma after I’m done eating it. Lucky for me and those of you who feel the same, it’s easy to eliminate potent food smells with Brightland’s Digestif Candle, which has subtle notes of orange blossoms and fresh grass.
