    2. A champagne stopper that'll keep your open bottle of bubbly from going flat overnight. Reviewers say it can keep their champagnes, proseccos, and other fizzy beveraginos sparkly for over a week.

    3. A glass snack bowl that looks like a resealable plastic bag, but is much more durable. Reviewers also love using it to display smaller things, like crystals and bb succulents, too.

    4. A set of divided meal prep containers that'll help you sort out your lunches and dinners in advance. Because they have two compartments, you won't have to worry about your salad dressing seeping into your dessert (my *actual* worst nightmare).

    6. A set of colourful taco stands that'll make filling your tortillas a *way* less messy task. They're safe to put in the microwave, so you can even heat up your fiesta snacks after stuffing 'em.

    7. A French rolling pin for anyone who bakes on the regular. Thanks to its length and tapered design, working with larger sheets of dough and fondant will be a cinch.

    9. A set of food colouring markers that'll encourage you to play with your food and create edible works of art. They're dual-ended, with one fine tip and one thick tip, so you can create intricate designs and broad strokes.

    11. A vintage-style butter dish with an airtight seal that'll make you feel like a pioneer. Reviewers say it keeps their butter smooth, soft, and easy to spread (aka what we all want in a breakfast condiment).

    12. A salad dressing shaker that'll help you whip up perfectly blended vinaigrettes and marinades in mere seconds. The wire ball will emulsify your ingredients and keep them from separating before you even have the chance to pour them over your leafy greens.

    13. A roll of cheese storage paper that'll regulate humidity to keep your favourite bries, havartis, and cheddars from getting too moist or too dry. Reviewers say it keeps cheese tasting fresh and combats mould like nothing else.

    14. A meal planning pad that'll help you plot out what you'll be eating every day so you won't be tempted to give up and order takeout (again). It has a tear-off section at the bottom where you can write your grocery list, helping you keep track of what you need to buy.

    15. A pair of cut-resistant gloves that'll protect your digits from nicks when you're slicing and dicing. Reviewers say they're a must-have for anyone who uses a mandoline or grater on the regular.

    16. A nylon chopping tool that you can use to de-clump your meats, veggies, and more. Reviewers say it mashes their culinary creations into a finer texture than a wooden spoon would and love that it doesn't scratch up their cookware in the process.

    17. A genius divided pie pan so you can make two different recipes and only end up with one dirty pan. If you and your partner both love dessert, but can't agree on which flavour is best, this pan will be a blessing.

    18. And a divided lasagna pan so you can make three different pasta recipes and only end up with one dirty pan. Reviewers say it makes cutting their noodle dishes into equal portions a lot easier, too.

    19. An ergonomic herb chopper with five ultra-sharp stainless steel blades that'll make chiffonading your basil, thyme, and mint a simple and straightforward process. Reviewers love how sharp the edges are and say it's much more effective than a knife.

    20. A pair of wood-handled ravioli stamps that'll help you create some seriously gourmet noodle pockets in your own kitchen. You can also use them to craft dumplings if those are more their jam.

    21. A pack of adhesive spice jar labels that'll help you distinguish your thyme from your oregano without doing the sniff test. They're waterproof, so you won't have to stress about them getting splashed with sauce during the cooking process.

    22. A pair of space-saving collapsible colanders that'll be a true blessing if your kitchen cabinets are already stuffed with pots, pans, and cooking gadgets. Reviewers love how thick the handles are and say they give them extra grip when they're draining pasta.

    23. A souped-up Keurig coffee maker for anyone who takes there caffeine routine very seriously. Besides the regular functions, it can make concentrated coffee shots (basically espresso) and even froth milk — your traditional coffee maker could never.

    24. A cheese board with all the fixings. It comes with pull-out plates and a full knife set (all of which tuck neatly inside), so you won't have to purchase extra accessories for your fromage.

    25. A stainless steel claw that'll help you cut uniform slices of fruits and veggies without even trying. It can double as a meat tenderizer, if your steaks could use a little love before cooking.

    26. And finally, a double-decker shelf that'll make your coffee cart look a bazillion times cuter (and keep your beans 'n' tools tidy). It has a top handle, so you can bring it to your table when you're hosting brunch.
