    1. This magical Revlon one-step styler that'll dry, volumize, and style your tresses all in one go. Now you won't need to mess around with a thousand hair tools when you're running late.

    May Ning/BuzzFeed

    "If you hold it near your roots, you'll get more volume. If you pull it all the way through, you'll get a nice straightening effect. I personally like to roll it inwards for that tapered look. The round brush head is super handy, and I've even managed to get some pretty waves when I wrap my hair around it and leave it for a few seconds." —May Ning

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $48.99+. Available in four colours.

    2. A microwave egg cooker that makes an omelet that's the perfect size for an english muffin, so you won't have to leave your house for a breakfast sammy ever again. You can use it to poach and scramble your oeufs, too, if that's more your style.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $4.98.

    3. A portable bedside caddy, so that you don't have to nap with journals, books, and electronics piled up in your bed (me ATM). Without the clutter, you'll be able to happily snooze your way through the day without rolling onto your stuff. No nightstand table? No problem.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $69.99. Also available in blue.

    Amazon / Via

    One BuzzFeed writer is obsessed with how versatile this gadget is. It can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice/porridge cooker, yogurt maker, cake maker, egg cooker, steamer, warmer, and sterilizer, so everything else in your kitchen will probably start gathering dust.

    Amazon / Via, Amazon / Via

    "I personally own these and love them! I just moved from an apartment to a house and wanted a little bit of added security. I order a lot of stuff online, so it's great to see when my packages arrive. I can even use the talk function to talk to delivery people when they arrive. This has been especially helpful during the pandemic as I can tell them to leave things on the step, instruct them to put packages out of view, and also thank them. The app is super easy to use and it automatically notifies me if there's activity at my front door." —Sarah Aspler

    Get one camera on Amazon Canada for $129.99. Also available in larger sets.

    16. A double-sided dishwasher magnet that'll tell you the state of what's inside, so you won't even have to exert any energy opening the door (just remember to flip it).

    17. A bottle of Living Proof dry shampoo that will make your dirty hair feel clean without even stepping in the shower (because let's face it, hygiene is not our top priority ATM). It also makes for a stellar texturizing spray, if you want to add a little body to your 'do.

    "This is honestly a miracle in a bottle. And it doesn’t just mask dirty hair — it actually cleans it! Just a few sprays and my short hair looks freshly washed, and smells AH-MAZING. I love that it comes in three different sizes, so I can stash a lil’ guy in my purse for on-the-go refreshes, and keep a larger size at home. As an added bonus, it adds just a hint of texture, so my pixie cut always looks perfectly tousled." —Victoria Kuglin

    $33. Also available in mini and value sizes.

    18. A pair of tiny Tile Slim Bluetooth stickers, if all of your things are constantly going MIA, but you don't have the energy to go looking for them. You just ring your stickers from your phone or find its GPS location with the help of the free app.

    Amazon / Via

    I have these on my phone and wallet and just ring them in the morning when I'm too lazy to unzip my bag and check if they're there. I understand that that behaviour is peak laziness, and I accept it.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $29.99. Also available in larger packs.

    19. A set of handy toaster bags, so you can make a grilled cheese sandwich without dirtying any pans. You can also use them to heat up leftover pizza, chicken nuggets, and pretty much anything else.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $279.99. Also available in white.

    22. A set of microfibre face cloths that don't even need makeup remover to do their job — just run them under warm water and get down to business. They're the perfect solution to washing your face before bed when you really want to skip doing your skincare routine.

    I have one of these and it's super simple to use, even if you don't have a green thumb. Just drop the included plant pods, fill it with water, plug it in, and let it get down to business. It only took a few weeks for my lettuce and basil to be harvestable and now, after a couple months of patience, my tomatoes are starting to bloom. I love it because a) it makes me feel like a successful gardener b) thanks to the reservoir, my plants won't die if I forget to water them for weeks, and c) now I have fresh herbs at my disposal at all times.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $219.95. Available in three colours and in a smaller size. It comes with three basil plant pods, three tomato plant pods, and three lettuce plant pods, but you can purchase different varieties, too.

    30. An angled laptop desk, so you can comfortably work in a cocoon of blankets in bed, instead of at your desk. It has built-in slots for your tablet and phone, plus a mousepad, so you'll have everything you need to get to work.
