Yep, 2020 officially comes to an end tomorrow (it's about time, really) so we thought we'd do a roundup of everything the Real Homes editors have bought this year – and everything we've loved. These are a mix of gifted items and stuff we've bought ourselves, and we're talking everything from decor to appliances and tech! See this as an excuse to update your appliance game, give your bedroom a new lease of life for 2021 or just to treat yourself going into the new year.

Here's to a better 2021, with more time (hopefully) spent outside – not that we don't love the inside of our homes. Head to our shopping page for more spending inspiration.
