    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.

    Kyle Richmond / Via BuzzFeed

    "It's great to be able to pick my phone up while I'm lying in bed without using another hand to disconnect a cable. It's also small enough that the phone takes up most of the pad, which is good for aesthetics. My only caveat: you have to make sure your phone is centered on the pad and the light is on, otherwise it won't charge. (This happened to me last night, but that might be a phone issue vs. a charger issue.) Not all phones will work with wireless charging, so make sure you check compatible phones before purchasing." —Kyle Richmond (read their full review of the wireless Anker charger; it's #8 on the list)

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $16.99.

    This candle smells, like, stupid good. I love that it's not sickly sweet, like all those vanilla and pumpkin spice scents you see in department stores. It also looks really great in my living room, thanks to the vintage-style tin.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $27.98.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    My partner hates the fact that I hog every throw blanket in the house, so he insisted I hunt down one that was large enough for the two of us. I found this ultra-fluffy Bedsure one after a bit of scrolling on Amazon Canada, and wowee, do I ever love it. I got the largest size, so it comfortably covers both of us and our dog. It's, like, unbelievably soft, warm, but somehow lightweight, too. I comes with me from our couch to our bed every night, so needless to say I will be purchasing another. In what colour? Who knows. There are 21 shades available and I'm seriously having a tough time deciding.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $25.99 (available in four sizes and 21 colours).

    47. A retro-inspired Fujifilm camera to print out classic square pics that they'll want to cover their entire apartment with. There's a tiny mirror right next to the lens, so they'll be able to nail their selfie on the first try.
