    1. A flexible phone mount that'll hold your phone while you click-clack away on your keyboard (perfect if you don't have the desk space for a regular mount). Clip it to your desk and stream Netflix or FaceTime to your heart’s content, hands free.

    2. A retro floral bathing suit with a tie back and halter straps that you can adjust to fit your frame perfectly. If itsy bitsy teenie weenie bikinis just aren't for you, you'll probably love this.

    3. A Boscia jelly cleanser ball that'll make washing your face so fun, you might actually remember to do it. It feels like a bouncy ball and is infused with activated black bamboo charcoal that'll absorb toxins and impurities out of your skin.

    4. A sturdy multiuse rack that can be used for everything from drying water bottles to holding countertop trash bags. It has non-slip silicone tips on top and bottom, so you don't have to worry about it sliding around or losing its grip.

    5. A yogurt maker that'll have you making your own delicious and nutritious breakfast from scratch. It comes with six glass containers that you can use over and over again, so you'll be creating less waste, too!

    6. A pack of Nexcare pimple patches that'll magically make your zits disappear (or at least shrink) overnight. You'll see just how much oil was in your pimple when you peel it off, which is equal parts gross and satisfying.

    7. A calming Snuggle Puppy that'll lull your four-legged friend to sleep and reduce their anxiety by mimicking the heartbeat and heat of an actual dog. It's machine washable, so you don't have to worry if your canine companion has any accidents in their crate.

    8. A pair of beauty product spatulas that'll help you get every last bit of product out of your makeup containers. Gone are the days of throwing out half of your $72 holy grail foundation before it's even done.

    9. A stove cleaning kit that'll make your cooktop look good as new in just a few minutes. Just apply the cream to your burners, wait a few minutes for it to sink in, and then scrub away the gunk with the spongey cleaning tool. For super stubborn messes, you can scrape off build up with the razor.

    10. An adorable house-shaped tissue box holder that looks a lot cuter than the boring cardboard box your Kleenex comes in. Now when your allergies start acting up, you won't have to ruin your home decor with that eyesore.

    11. This magical Revlon one-step styler that dries, volumizes, and styles your locks all in one go. Now you won't need to mess around with a thousand hair tools when you're running late.

    12. A pack of lemon and cayenne iced tea that doesn't have a ton of caffeine in it, but will wake you up with its sour, spicy flavour. It also tastes great warm and would be the perfect tea for spiking in the winter months (if you're of age, obvi).

    13. A bestselling gel toilet stamp that cleans away stains and rings with every flush. It's also scented, so your bathroom will always smell fresh, no matter what goes on in there.

    14. A pack of all-natural boot-cleaning cloths that are powerful enough to remove even the toughest stains. They're also great for jackets and handbags, so go ahead and wipe down your whole wardrobe with 'em.

    15. This vegan, cruelty-free e.l.f. setting spray that'll save you from turning into an oily mess before the day is done. It's infused with good-for-you ingredients like vitamins B, E, and arctium majus root, so it'll keep your skin happy and healthy, too.

    16. A pack of hunky Drinking Buddies glass markers that'll hang off the edge of your glasses in perfect pull-up form. Not only do they look hilarious, but they'll save you from accidentally swapping beverages with your friends and family, too.

    17. A waterproof Kindle, so that you can finally catch up on all those novels you told your book club you'd read, but didn't actually (sorry, not sorry). Not only is this a more eco-friendly option than a paperback, but it allows you to magnify the font and change the boldness of the text, if you're having a hard time making out the words.

    18. A bottle of soothing T/Gel shampoo that'll help control itching and dandruff. It can be used daily and will leave your hair looking healthy and shiny after every wash.

    19. A cooling towel that'll help you beat the heat once and for all. If your AC is constantly out of order (lol, it me) or you want to relax in the sun without getting overheated, you probably need this in your life.

    20. A pack of gold under-eye patches that are infused with rose oil, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin C to soothe and moisturize skin. They have a cooling effect, so they may help wake you up on an early morning (or after a hangover).

    21. A cold brew coffee maker that'll save you a fortune on iced coffees and won't take up a ton of fridge real estate. The filter can handle even the finest ground coffee, and can be used for iced tea, too.

    22. A set of OXO containers that are transparent, so you know exactly what's inside each one. They take up a lot less space than the boxes and bags they're packaged in and will make your cupboards look like Pinterest goals.

    23. A cold therapy ice roller that'll de-puff your skin and wake you up in the morning. I use mine to combat migraines, and it works better than any pain-relieving technique I've tried. Oh, and it's great for beating the summer heat, too!

    24. A shower curtain liner with pockets because let's face it, pockets make everything better. This one gives you easy access to all your products and tools while you're in the shower, so you never have to sprint naked to your cabinets mid-routine to grab something.

    25. A bottle of seaweed-infused soil enhancer that's packed with deep-sea nutrients, vitamins, and minerals. Consider this treating your indoor garden to a sushi dinner, every week — they will love you for it.

    26. This budget-friendly nail cream that'll make your talons longer and stronger than ever before. It can also be used to moisturize your hands and dry, calloused feet, if that's something you struggle with.

    27. A set of gigantic cube and sphere ice moulds that will keep your cocktails and iced beverages extra frosty, and look cool doing it. They melt slower than smaller cubes, so you won't end up sipping on a watered-down, diluted drink.

    28. An exfoliating back loofah with handles that will probably be your new BFF if you're struggling with acne on your back or bumps on your booty. It helps get at hard-to-reach places and gives a great scrub without being too scratchy.

    29. And finally, a hair-finishing stick and cream that'll keep your wildest flyaways in place. It's like a mascara wand, but instead of combing through your lashes, it slicks your stray baby hairs down (without making them look greasy).
