    Amazon / Via

    The company currently works with Healthy Harbor to help fund the removal of single-use bottles from local waterways before they become ocean plastic, so you'll be doing some good with your purchase, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $26.50+. Available in seven colours.

    2. A celestial One Line a Day journal that'll take them a whole five years to complete. Now all their most treasured mems (including the special ones they share with you) will be conveniently kept in one written time capsule.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $17.04. Also available in floral.

    3. A variety pack of beard oils to add shape and shine to their beard, and get rid of any annoying itchiness. Plus they smell great, which obviously benefits you, too!

    Amazon / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $25.99.

    4. A screaming goat figurine, because your lover could definitely use more shrieking Bovidae in their life. It comes with a 32-page book of goat facts, so they'll probably learn something, too.

    Amazon / Via

    Just press the stump and let the bleating begin.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $12.22.

    5. A book of downright gorgeous woodsy abodes that might inspire them to kiss city living goodbye and move into the wild with you (or at least book a camping trip). I mean, even if they don't, they'll appreciate the #cabinporn.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $21.76. Also available in hardcover and for Kindle.

    6. A crème brûlée pan so that they don't have to go to a restaurant to enjoy their favourite indulgent dessert. If you've got some extra money lying around, pair it with a torch so that they can acheive that perfect carmelized crust, too.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $27.22.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    It prints out aesthetically pleasing little labels that you can use on storage boxes, meal prep containers, and everything in between. Unlike most electronic printers, this handheld device punches the letters into the stickers, which (in my humblest of opinions) is a lot prettier than an Arial font on a plain white background.

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $17.12.

    11. A mini felt letter board sign for their desk that'll make their workspace the envy of everyone in their office. It comes with 160 letters, numbers, and symbols, so they'll have everything they need to craft their message.

    Amazon / Via
