    Time to buy some presents for yourself.

Oh, and FYI — prices are accurate and items in stock as of time of publication.

    1. A bottle of argan oil hair serum because you probably spent December frying your locks with heat tools. This stuff will save your dry, damaged hair and give you that silky shine you’ve always dreamed of having. It also fights frizz and protects your hair from straighteners and curlers.

    One BuzzFeed editor says that it makes her hair feel just as shiny and gorgeous as it is when she leaves the salon, so you know it's legit.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $15.99.

    2. A mini Fujifilm photo printer that prints pictures directly from your phone's camera roll, so you can make hard copies of all your favourite pics from your time off. It uses a free app that allows you to add filters and frames, and shows them exactly how your photos will turn out, so you'll never waste precious film on subpar pics again.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for 199.98+. Available in three colours.

    3. A magical Instant Pot, because you've finally run out of leftovers in your freezer and need to start cooking your own meals again. It'll replace a ton of your single-use gadgets and generally make your meal prepping adventures a breeze.

    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.

    Get an eight-quart Instant Pot on Amazon Canada for $119.99+. Available in two other sizes and three bundle options.

    4. A weighted sleep mask that'll give you the most restful and relaxed sleep ever, which you probably need after all those holiday parties. One reviewer loves how it helps muffle sounds (great if you live in a high traffic area or noisy building).

    Amazon / Via

    You can lay it freely over your eyes, or secure it by pulling its tail through the open slit at its opposite end.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $39. Available in four colours.

    5. A Nintendo Switch that you'll have time to use now that your schedule isn't jampacked with social events. It's small enough to pop in your bag, but you can also connect it to your TV if you want to play it on the big screen.

    @nintendo / Via

    It even comes with Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, so you can start playing as soon as it arrives at your door. If you want a less bulky option, one BuzzFeed editor recommends the Switch Lite. It doesn’t have joy-cons that slide off like the original, making it better for travel than playing on a larger screen. It'll also save you a bit of money (it's over $100 less)!

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $399.95.

    6. If you spent the holidays living back in your parents mothball-scented basement, a bougie coconut wax candle that'll make your home smell like a bottle of prosecco, but better. Despite its mini size, it can burn for a full 45 hours, so you'll get plenty of use out of it.

    @voluspacandles / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $40.48. Available in a smaller size.

    7. Or a mini cactus diffuser that you don't have to forget to blow out at the end of the night. It'll pretty up your desk or bedside table, and won't die if you forget to water it.

    Amazon / Via

    It comes with a fresh scent, but if that's not your thing, you can grab your own set of essential oils.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $41.25.

    8. A pack of collagen face masks that'll help firm and smooth your skin. You've probably slept in your makeup a few too many times lately, and these will help make your skin less angry and baby soft.

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers love the healthy, glowy results and say that they even help combat acne.

    Get a pack of six on Amazon Canada for $25.95.

    9. A bestselling teeth whitening kit that'll turn your wine-stained teeth into pearly whites. Reviewers say it's a great option for people with sensitive teeth and that they actually do see a significant difference after their first session.

    @_mysmileteeth / Via

    The kit comes with enough whitening gel for three sessions.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $36.99.

    10. A robotic vacuum that will suck up every little piece of confetti that's been hiding in your apartment since New Year's Eve. It's as quiet as a microwave, so it won't bug you while it sweeps up messes.

    Amazon / Via

    The vacuum comes with a charging base, an AC power adapter, a cleaning tool, an extra set of high-performance filters, four side brushes, five cable ties, and an instruction manual.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $299.99. Also available in white.

    11. A chic glass tumbler that's so adorable, you may actually remember to sip on some water. You've probably been drinking a lot more than H2O these past few weeks, so now's the time to get back in the habit.

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers say the straw is the perfect thickness for smoothies, so you can use it for your breakfast, too. Its silicone sleeve protects against chips and cracks, and makes it easy to hold.

    Get it on Amazon for $12.91+. Available in four colours.

    12. A set of colourful bath bombs that'll help you find your zen and chill the heck out after a very busy December. Reviewers love how soft these make their skin feel and mention that even the brightest ones won't stain your tub.

    Amazon / Via

    They're handmade and cruelty free.

    Get a set of 12 for $35.80.

    13. A deck of non-cheesy affirmation cards that'll give you the dose of positivity you need now that you're back to your daily grind. Reviewers say that they're simultaneously inspiring and hilarious, which is a combo I can get on board with.

    Amazon / Via

    Each deck comes with 50 cards, so you won't run out of your happy thought supply for a very long time.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $15.75. Available in four styles.

    14. A mini cupcake maker because you should totally enjoy baked goods beyond Christmas cookie season. It makes seven cupcakes in less time than it takes to get to a bakery and will add a little sweetness to your day with barely any extra work.

    Amazon / Via

    It has non-stick plates, so cleanup takes, like, zero work.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $34.99.

    15. This oversized Orolay parka that'll probably replace every jacket in your collection. It has a ton of pockets and a sherpa-lined hood for optimal coziness (basically, everything your holiday attire was not).

    One BuzzFeed writer loves that it's long enough to cover her butt so that she can happily wear leggings all winter long without freezing her glutes off.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $186.99+. Available in six colours and sizes XXS-5X.

    16. A shiatsu foot massager to relieve built-up tension and pain by hitting pressure points, which is what you'll need after a whirlwind holiday season. Reviewers say it's super easy to use and love the options for different intensities and heat.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $159.99.

    17. An coffee body exfoliator to scrub away all the bad vibes your family gave you because you're "still single". Coffee's not just for drinking, y'all.

    @basdbodycare / Via

    This one is formulated for sensitive skin and made of organic ground coffee, sweet almond oil, vitamin E oil, sea salt, and coconut sugar. It's plant-based, non-toxic, paraben free, non-GMO, and cruelty free.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $19.99. Also available in crème brûlée scent.

    18. The Wild Unknown Tarot Deck and Guidebook, because you're ready to leave 2019 in the dust and want to see what 2020 holds for you.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed

    I own this and it's one of my favourite things in my apartment. It's far from a traditional deck and is so pretty, you'll definitely want to display your cards somewhere everyone can see (I've given many impromptu readings because friends have spotted them on my bookshelf). If you're not versed in tarot but want to do a bit of dabbling, it even comes with a handy guide that explains how to lay out, read, and interpret your cards so you can sail through your first full reading (and every one after that).

    Get it from Amazon Canada for $33.85.

    19. A handheld steamer because all of your clothes are probably a mess from living out of a suitcase. It's a lot gentler on your stuff than an iron and takes up way less space.

    Amazon / Via

    It automatically powers off when it gets too hot or has run of water, so you don't have to stress if you accidentally leave it on. Plus, it comes with its very own travel pouch.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $35.99.

    20. A pair of shearling slippers that are so much comfier than the pumps you wore to your family reunions and Friendsmas events. These ones have a harder sole with a tread that'll save you from taking a dive on your hardwood.

    @bearpawstyle / Via

    Get them on Amazon Canada for $50.50. Available in size 5-13.

    21. A cozy weighted blanket that reviewers say has helped them fall asleep faster, aided their anxiety, and helped with insomnia and PTSD. If you haven't had a solid eight hours in a while, this may be just what you need.

    Amazon / Via

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $84.90+. Available in six weights, three sizes, and three colours.

    22. A reversible duvet cover and pillowcase that'll make your bed so cute and comfortable that you won't want to leave it until 2021. It's also wrinkle resistant, so you don't have to worry about ironing your sheets (because let's be honest, you won't).

    Amazon / Via

    The set includes one duvet cover and two pillowcases, and is hypoallergenic and fade resistant.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $65.99+. Available in three sizes.

    23. And finally, a pair of Sony noise-cancelling headphones to give you some much-deserved peace and quiet. These have touch sensor controls so you won't have to fumble around with any tiny buttons when you want to control volume, activate your voice assistant, answer phone calls, or change your music.

    Amazon / Via

    Reviewers are obsessed with how strong the bass is.

    Get it on Amazon Canada for $248. Also available in grey.

    Congrats on making it through the holidays!
