    Get it on Amazon Canada for $21.50.

    4. A Tower 28 lip jelly, if they're tired of the matte lip trend and prefer the look of a plumper, juicier pout. The formula is oil based, meaning they won't have to deal with the dreaded stickiness of a traditional gloss.

    Until recently, I was not a gloss gal. In fact, I was not a lip product gal at all (besides balm). But let me tell you, things have changed! I am obsessed with these lip jellies. They keep my cracked, chapped lips soothed and the colours are great. I am not lying when I say I am going to purchase every single one because they are so dang pretty.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $18. Available in ten colours.

    5. A stylish Herschel beanie that'll keep their noggin' warm until spring has sprung. It's super slouchy and is long enough to keep their ears covered.

    6. A six-pack of no-pull scrunchies that have secret pockets where they can stash their tiniest treasures. They're made of velvet, so they won't tug on their strands like regular elastic bands, saving them from breakage.

    11. A set of rainbow crystal nail files that'll cause less breakage than metal alternatives and will leave their nails feeling smoother than ever. They come with plastic sheaths, so they won't accidentally poke themself if they leave them floating around in their bag.
